I believe any dog regardless of type of dog can snap. I don't think i have heard about any other type than a pit mauling or killing.


Just Google it. Plenty of Sheperds, Rotties, Dobbies, plenty of them.
Most of the pics of the pit killings the dog is clearly not a pit. It is a mix of anything but pits if you look at the dog close enough.

I read that article in todays paper about the pits and mixed pits and made some decisions about how to handle things from now on if i face the dog in the original post again.
Hey, not all people who live in the hood are bad people, but i am on extra-high alert when i am there because the majority of crime that i personally have faced came from people that lived there. I am just playing the odds.
Same with the potentially serious dog attacks.
Maybe some people are willing to take chances that i am not, and they can leave their kids in the yard with whatever breed they like. But for me it has been decided.

Here is the article that goes with the picture. It happened only a few weeks ago.

So the owner admitted they were not registered. Their is no way to say 100% they were pits. Like I said the one on the right looks like a mutt.
The one on the left I said looks like one but it's hard to tell in a picture.
Still doesn't stand with hard evidence they were pits.

The name calling is not going to change any ones opinion, and might just re-affirm peoples stereotypes of pit owners.

However, I am far from ignorant regarding the breed. I worked extensively in Alabama initially to get the breed banned, and made sure I was able to hold my ground when discussing the stats surrounding the breed, as well as the history of the breed.

I have since changed my position about a ban, because I don't think people should be banned from owning anything they truly love, but I do still continue to support strict regulation, insurance riders and safety precautions (mandatory 10 ft fences/locked gates etc...)when harboring any dangerous animals (not just pit bulls).

They can make great pets, but they can also be extremely dangerous. Siegfrieds tiger made a great pet too...until.

Your name calling only makes your argument less believable, and insistent denial doesn't change the facts.

Your comments proves otherwise on being ignorant about the breed.
You obviously have been against pits for awhile and if you ever help with Animal Control of course you would be against pits ALL they work with is abused and neglected dogs.
Your input is pretty much useless.
You are trying to compare a tiger.... about being a good pet.
The only facts that has been posted by someone about pits are dangrous is posting from sites that are CLEARLy 100% ANTI pitbull. That is not credible information.
Your just to ignorant I guess. Typical bamaboy though

You couldn't be more wrong regarding my knowledge of the breed(and dog attack stats in general) I know their history, what changed them and I'm still pretty up to speed on legislation surrounding aggressive dogs including some targeting pits specifically. Even though I am no longer involved in the cause.
