Pitbulls should be allowed to be pets, there are not an aggressive dog like people think. The problem is that owners do not know how to properly care and train their pets so they end up look aggressive or mean but they are not, they just were never taught how to act around other animals/people.
So why should we treat them that way? They only give what is received. You give'm love and they give it back, you show hatred and nastiness then you might be missing hand or finger. They are all the biggest teddy bears ever seen but, they can get wild. Its all up to the owner.
I challenge anyone who thinks they pick out a pit bull in a line up of 10 breeds and get it right on the first try, The dog is a dog, no more dangerous than a Great Dane (which was also bred for killing, wild boar.) And if anyone here has hunted they know how deadly those things are. People should really self educate themselves, and not believe every story the media puts on.
Pitbulls are not vicious dogs. If a pitbull is raised in a loving environment he or she can be a wonderful pet. The pitbulls we need to worry about are the ones that are trained to fight or the ones that are abused. If someone wants to have a pitbull and they are a responsible pet owner, they should be allowed.
In the 9-year period from 2005 to 2013, pit bulls killed 176 Americans, about one citizen every 18.6 days.
Why do people feel they have the right to endanger other citizens, so they can have the toughest dog?
People are ignorant and selfish to want to own these killing machines.
The story is allways the same, "Our Pitbull is gentle and a big Baby" Then the dog goes nuts and eats the baby!
PitBulls sense weakness and attack children, women and babies more than adult males. Bully breed is a great name, and their owners wish to intimidate and have their neighbors live in fear, because they are bully's and cowards to.
94% of Pitbull attacks on children are unprovoked, compared to 40% for all other breeds.
Shame on you if you support this breed! Do some research into the lives these vicious animals have destroyed!
