Plus w/ having such a broad term of "pitt" it really bothers me. It hasn't really started all over the US but some towns and areas have banned them. It really doean't make sense it's not the dogs but the owners. I mean if they ban them from having dogs, but the problem would be enforcing it, most people around here don't even register their dogs so how would they even keep track.
Plus if they start banning "pitts" what's next????

i dont see why they bann them, bcos fighting pits is illegal, so banning the breed will not stop the dog fighting

Because the government is dog ignorant. They don't seem to understand that the owner should be held responsible for the dogs actions. but they don't seem to expect people to take responsibility for their own children these days lol blaming the dog is just the easy way out. I have never met a pitbull that was properly cared for that wasn't a total sweetheart. Ban the people not the dogs lol THAT will make the world a better place

Hardy har har smarty pants lol but it's true lol nobody is expected to take responsibility for anything anymore it seems. Why deal with the person when the easiest thing to do is just deal with the dog? That's such a sick way of thinking

I so agree sparks! Plus now when ever anyone hear the word pitt they freak. I have even seen people petting and playing w/ dogs then someone says that it's a pitt or pitt mix and they jump away from the dog and freak. If it was so sweat and cute a second ago it's not going to change into this horrible beast b/c someone said the word pitt. I so try not to even say that word at the rescue, any actual breed fine but not that word.
And puck stop that was funny! Brat hehehe

Sorry shadow that we took over this thread w/ this discussion, we got a bit off track. She is so cute. Give her a big kiss from us for taking over.

The act was brought in, in 1991 I was only 8 at the time, I really dont remeber anything about it.

Here is a link which takes you to the goverment leaflet on this subject.

I cant believe I was ignorant of this.
Wow! What an ignorant, petty piece of uninformed tripe that little pamphlet is! And if they are going to ban a breed (Fila Brasileiro), at least spell it right!

Can you tell these kinds of things really torque me?
