Well the media has put a bad taste in a lot of people's mouth bc anytime a pit attacks it will make headlines..


Ya it wouldn't be so bad if they even could verify all attacks were pits. But people just look at an aggressive dog and say pit! Even though it is something way off that has no pit in it what so ever.

Why take the chance? WHO SAID a retriver got a free pass? Why have a dog that CAN change a happy family forever?????? Odds are much better than the lottery that a dog will snap. Heck, I know more than one very sain person that has snapped. WHY have so much faith in a DOG????

I've been around some pits that kinda give you that bad feeling and some that think they are lap dogs raising and socializing a dog has a lot to do with its nature. Most of the pits that are dangerous have been tied in back yards and their only experience with humans is when they get fed.

i have a pit and a lab. both of them are very friendly. i never was a dog person until i got my pitbull. never have i seen such a loyal animal. and he is very protective of my 2 young boys. he wont let the kids out of his sight. wherever the boys go is where he goes. he does bark when someone comes over so hopefully i can get him broke of that.

I gotta tell ya 89..you bout had to figure you would catch a bunch of crap about pits. You seem like a nice fella. Don't let it ruffle your feathers. Everybody has a kind of bad thought about these dogs. They just seem a bit scary and we as humans don't like to be scared.


Thanks. My only pet peeve is ignorance.
It only makes me mad because I have had people say i'm a bad person or I don't care about kids because I let them around my pits.
When non of my pits have ever even shown their teeth to anybody.
That's the only reason it gets to me. First person to say i'm a bad parent when I have kids and I have my pits around them they will really set me off.

The first time one of your pits show their teeth to someone may be the last time that person is alive! Odds are it won't happen, but what will be your statement if it does?

Ive only ever seen one bad pitt and part of its problem was it was abused and starved by a bunch of druggies. My buddy has a couple of them and i even dog sat them while he was out of town. I always had my pistoul on me but they never showd any signs of aggression and are very sweet and playfull dogs. I personally wouldnt let my kids around them without me being there just because of all ive herd about them. Ive been bitten by germanshepards and have been cornerd by a rott before, but the meanest dogs ive ever had to deal with was a chow. Ive had to kill two of those that went from being good pets to killing livestock and the other snaped and came at my pregnant wife.

One misconception of pits. MOST attacks reported by pits once a DNA test is done the DNA shows no signs of pit in the blood.


I don't buy that at all. The center for Disease control Statistics pretty much mirror statistics in an independent dog attack study resulting in death. In deaths I am sure more than a media account was used to determine the breed of a dog. Most likely it was the owner or a veterinarian that determined the breed while the dog was sequestered(most of the time that is mandatory).

the studies show that more than half (56% from 1998 through 2012)of the fatalities every year involving a dog are attributed to pit bull or pit bull mixes. Rottweilers (or Rott mixes) account for about 11% of deaths. So 2 breeds (and their mixes) account for more than 2/3 of all fatalities.

These stats are for deaths, deaths. Again deaths require pretty extensive investigation by people who know what they are doing, so I don't think there is a media bias against Pits, or a case of mistaken identity in play here. True all dogs can be dangerous, but some are by their physical makeup more dangerous than others.

I wouldn't support banning any breed, but I would support measures to assure people who have dangerous animals of any kind have to take certain precautions to keep their animals secure.

Even a backyard full of pits kids play with ours all the time and we have never had one single issue.


That is a pretty common comment following most dog attack stories...not just Pits.

no one thinks their dog will bite.
