I mean, even if a certain pit bull is generally docile, could he turn, and turn hard on humans or other animals? The city pound has a bunch of pits (or pit mixes) and their jaws are massive. Then, I read articles about pit attacks, and a typical response from the owners is, "Brutus is such a lovable dog, I can't believe he did this."

not really, the problem is that they are so strong and if they turn it can be a big problem

No. Not unless the owner trains them to be dangerous.

Not if they are trained well. In fact, a lot of pit bulls I've encountered are great dogs.

I think owners are more dangerous than the do, any dog can be dangerous if not trained and loved. They are like humans,but some of them take better care of their families than some humans! If we put down a bad dog do we put down bad humans?

No but I do think that some owners are!:( We had a rotti and she was 90 pounds of love and what a great dog with our children. Also suppose to be a bad dog, Once a year Bear would go to school and get her updated version on behavior and play. At the end of a week she would come home and proudly show off her degree from the trainers and a new bandanna. She was gentle and loving and kind, its the owners right to take a dog to training class's and teach their dogs the proper way to behave. Its like having children they must be taught how to behave and what is acceptable in society today. Well just like some stupid parents who don't care you have stupid pet owners. This is a bad idea if your not willing to train and spend time with your child or pet don'y have or get one!!!!

Not if properly trained starting with a pup, but most people don't have a clue and their dogs get little or no training, so the vicious side comes out.

Since TCC has chosen to remove my first message to him on his whiteboard, here is how he responded to my latest request:

"Why are you getting annoyed? Wait one day to read it. Do you not have any self control? This is silly beyond words. GOOD BYE!"

And here is my latest message to him, since he will probably erase it from his whiteboard:

"My point is that your postings telegraph the answers to the questions in the other topic -- MY self-control has nothing to do with it. And I see that you don't even want to allow my comment to you to remain here for others to see why I am annoyed."

I still don't know if he even understands why his actions are annoying -- but he has a very easy way to stop making me annoyed, and has continued to ignore my repeated explanations of what he is doing. All he needs to do is leave his posts on this thread for ONE DAY. Then I and any others who want to post in the "Feed Hungry Kats and Dogs" topic can answer the questions without being clued in ahead of time. I don't cheat at solitare, nor read the last pages of mystery stories. Maybe he does?

TCC, what part of my repeated requests to you do you not understand?

Al I have asked is for you to WAIT ONE DAY to post anything here about the cute pit bull stories you read on the other topic. I don't even see that you have ever posted there to help keep it at the top.

Posting here about the pit bull stories gives a major clue that the answer involves a pit bull. So you are creating an unfair influence for the other topic. I have asked that you NOT DO THIS. Why is it that hard for you to oblige another GB member with a simple change in your behaviour?

Pit Bulls are no worse than any other breed, they're just big and strong.

@ TuanCanCook...That was a great story, and it proves a point.

7 Dog Breeds that Don't Deserve Their Stereotypes
1. Pit Bull: Sadly, this breed has taken on more criticism and warnings than most other breeds in recent years. Often labeled as vicious, untrustworthy, and in possession of locking jaws, the Pit Bull tops our list as receiving a bad rap. According to the American Temperament Test Society, Pit Bulls ranked second in reliability overall. In other words: This original "nanny breed" is not the problem, but the way he is trained may be the issue.

You would think with all the bad publicity that they get but after watching the news where a owner dragged his pitbull. You would think this dog would retaliate but it was kind and loving. I had a close encounter where one pitbull broke the chain and was determined to get me , thank god the policepulled up maybe twenty seconds later because there was nothing in between me and the pitbull but my mountain bike

Did you finally pay attention to my requests, or just not get around to posting until now? Either way, your timing is much better than before.

Yes, a positive story -- but what about the disgusting person/people who shot the dog in the first place? Too bad there's no accountability for that.

Awesome story!
Funny thing about the Pit Bull / Cat relationship .
I was dogsitting a Pit/Lab mix that that was sniffing my cat & my cat took a swipe at his nose & he went running outside. LOL. They were getting along later in the day. I guess kitty wanted him to know who running things while he was here. HAHAHA!
Is the a goose in the background of that pic?
