    Bad time for this, considering a pack of them mauled a womn to death and their owner is in jail for murder.

    Per most vets you talk with, small dogs bite more often than big ones and are more likely to bite a child. There are bad dogs in all breeds, just as there are bad people in all races and religions. Sometimes they are born that way, other times they are trained to be that way. Any animal allowed to run in a pack will have a pack mentality. No different from the human mob/riot mentality. If you look at a pit bull and see nothing but a killing machine, do you also look at a Muslim and see nothing but a terrorist? I really hope not. We always hear about the pit bull that killed someone. How many times do we hear about the good things they do? Pits have saved their families from fires, home invasion and are service dogs. Just like any other breed. Homesteaders used them to guard their children and livestock back in the day. It all comes down to the fact that Irresponsible and stupid people shouldn’t be allowed to own animals…..or breed.

    A couple weeks ago, a healthy, active woman in her 60s was torn apart by a pack of pit bulls. The owner has been charge with murder.

    I feel bad for “sweet” pit bulls who have a hard time finding a home, but the reality is that pits are bred for fighting, strength, and tenacity (at least in my neighborhood) and they are unpredictible.

    No. Bullets don’t work on a pit bull determined to attack a human or another animal. Sheriff’s deputies in my neighborhood have had encounters where an attacking pit bull would not stop after being shot more than once.

    I have four pits and am near littlerock. They have.been trained since puppies to pull skateboard. I put razor scooter wheels on and they are strong, ignore other dogs and usually two at a time. As far as I know I’m the only one snowboarding the Mojave.
    I also clean their teeth with dental tools since puppies. They sit there patiently with their mouths open.

    Yes, bad dogs in all breeds, and small dogs are often nippy – but having been attacked by a pitbull, in the owner’s home, without warning or any sort of provocation – I have to say the breed itself seems dangerously aggressive and unpredictable. I was lucky to avoid harm, but there’s a real difference between when someone’s high-strung toy poodle bites a child who is noisily trying to pet it, and a pitbull that lunges without provocation and can tear off a face or rip out your throat. I’ve also known pitbulls that were gentle and affectionate, but in a breed with the destructive power of a pitbull, it’s not realistic to think it’s just problem owners – at least some of the problem is the breed itself – bred for strength and aggession, we shouldn’t pretend it’s all bad owners when those traits turn up with unfortunate frequency.

    @Gee Man

    First let me say I’m sorry to hear you were attacked. It is a very scary situation. I have also been bitten by dogs with no provocation. They were not pit bulls. Due to inbreeding and street breeding like Imonteros pointed out, they can be unpredictable. This is a problem with many breeds that are inbred. Irresponsible people breed them for their aggressive traits. Those people shouldn’t own animals.
    I have personally known of 2 incidents with German shepherds that decided they didn’t want their owners to leave so they attacked them. One didn’t survive. I agree that it isn’t just bad owners. Those people were very good dog owners and their animals still turned on them. We don’t hear about these incidents in the media, just the ones involving pits. As far as that cute little toy poodle. Look up how many children are subjected to cosmetic surgery because FeeFee just took out a little chunk.
