I don't think the big issue... At least for me, is you having pits. My issue is the kids. Of course it's your kids and not mine. I just hate reading headlines and watching parents on tv when their life is turned upside down by the senseless loss of a child.

Yep, pits are dangerous, and unpredictable. One nearly killed our dog on our front porch. I can't imagine anyone wanting their kids around one. Russian roulette comes to mind.

Closed minded ignorant comes to mind. Pits are not dangerous and unpredictable.
Closed minded uneducated ignorant people are dangerous because they feel like they know everything.
Just like liberals..................

Just because someone happens to disagree, does not mean they are "ignorant, close minded, uneducated, or liberal". But, this seems to be the knee jerk response from most pit bull defenders..
BTW, Personal attacks, and name calling members that don't agree is against forum rules.

August 2011:

http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2011/aug/04/boys-ears-torn-head-during-newport-dog-attack/

A 10-year-old boy flown by medical helicopter to the University of Tennessee Medical Center after being mauled by a dog was listed in serious condition this afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Brandon Williams, whose ears were torn from his head and sustained bite marks to his entire body, was attacked by a pit-bull mix Wednesday at a home in the 1000 block of Branch Drive in Newport, according to a Cocke County Sheriff's Department report.

The dog's owners, Jennifer R. Switzer, 21, and Anthony L. Lugar, 22, both of 1009 Branch Drive, were arrested following the afternoon attack on a charge of allowing animals to run at large with serious bodily injury, according to their respective arrest reports.


...and God Bless Him here is a visual for you.

Oh, I forgot it was only a Pit Bull mix not a real pit bull and it looks like maybe another dog was involved.

Comes to light that A LOT of people on here are so close minded and ignorant it's sad. Just as sad as liberals destroying our country.
Kinda scares me on how bad some people on here are are being so close minded and ignorant. It's sad



Listen here, just because somebody has a different opinion than your own does not mean that they are being ignorant or closed minded. That is very liberal of you and sounds like a bunch of bulls*t to me. Are people not entitled to different ideas? The great thing about sires like these are that people have the opportunity to discuss matters with each other and try to argue their point. At some point though, you have to realize that there are some things that cant be agreed upon and then just move on. I say that it is very childish to throw a fit and start calling people names just because they dont agree with you. I will now drop this whole matter because you have your ideas and others and myself have our own.

I don't wait for them to attack. If you happened to live in north Rutherford county and your rott disappeared bout ten years ago I know where he went. No dog is going to growl at me in my yard.
Case in point for unpredictably, My daddy had a pair of beagles , yep beagles , when we were growing up in Nashville. They were both friendly as ever as most beagles are. One day without ANY provocation , the male attacked my sister who was about two at the time . If me an my brothers were not out there in the backyard no telling where this would have ended. Who wooda thunk ! ANY dog has the potential to return to their roots and kill !

Of all the dog breeds to choose from why a Pitt or similar?

Sure they CAN be sweet wonderful dogs, but what unique qualities do they possess that can't be found in other dogs?

1. Fur? Nope all dogs have fur. IF you want a soft fuzzy animal to pet, a pitt is like petting a moldy bologna. Short coat on a pile of muscle. On a scale of 1-10 for pet-ability it gets a 5.

2. Size. Medium to large. Hmmmm LOTS of other breeds able to fill the size requirement.

3.Personality. Pitts personality cover the whole range of personalities. From sweet and meek to aggressive and dangerous. From mellow to hyper. Nothing unique or special here.

4. Intelligence. Well you pretty much never see Pitts in those trick dog competitions or retriever/field trials. That leads you to believe that exceptional intelligence is not a dominant trait. So they are in with the pack somewhere and not at the head of the class for intelligence as a breed.

So WHAT ONE feature do they possess that makes them so attractive?

IT is either the REPUTATION for aggression and being a killer, The INTIMIDATION factor of such a reputation, or the ACTUAL AGGRESSION/KILLER ability for things like hog hunting, dog fighting, or guard dogs.

How many people NEED a catch dog or a guard dog with the ability to KILL or MAIM an intruder? Probably not many.

I think people get certain breeds of dogs for STUPID reasons. Be it the apartment dweller who gets a Visla cause they are "cool dogs" and then has their apartment destroyed regularly by a hyper dog, to the pitt owner who takes on unnecessary risk by getting a "dangerous breed" because they want the image of being some kind of dangerous and cool.

I think people should be ALLOWED to do what they want without government interference. BUT people need to be RESPONSIBLE for their decisions. You want a tiger wearing a laser on its head? Fine... but you better be willing and able to handle the responsibility and consequences for your decisions.

I spent a little over a year around 3 Pits on a daily basis. I was bitten on the wrist once without any provocation or warning. Just minding my own business and it bit me. thankfully it didn't lock down.

Had to super glue bite gashes multiple times on two of them because they would fight for no reason. Sweet disposition one moment and growling and showing teeth the next. The owner kept telling how the "dogs, just love you so much".

I have no use for the breed.
