Haven't these people seen homeward bound? Chance wouldn't harm a fly. I just believe that if you raise anything from a baby that there's no excuse for terrible behaviour. That goes for children and dogs alike. "It's the breed" is just an excuse. My friend has awful untrained dogs that walk all over every peice of furniture and take your food out of your hands and totally ignore any and all commands. You just CANT bathe or groom them. You can't clip theirs nails or check their ears or teeth because they won't allow it and she blames the dogs. They are just "that way" she has a sheltie, a mini aussie, and 2 min pins. She is full of B-O-L-O-G-N-A!

Too true. I've even gotten the "when you get older you'll change your mind.." one. Ummmmm.... I just told you I'm not going to beat/choke/rub my dog's nose in things because it's abuse... you think I'll change my mind? I bet I could change yours. Or be slapped with a lawsuit for assaulting someone.

I think that people who seeks out these breeds and train them to be agressive are a big reason for this reputation.
I agree with a couple of your points Samantha. It p!sses me off to no end when I see young males that are trying to be badass using a pitbull to 'help' their image There are a couple I see constantly walking their pitties (who do not look well cared for) on HUGE chains (like towing chains) with no collar for the dogs. Sickening really.

And OF COURSE you are just saying that because you are a dog lover If you were a dog hater........why would you bother?
