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?
