Please, please, if you learn nothing else here, learn that if you ask questions, you'll get real answers. If you throw out uninformed opinions, you open the door for opinions to be formed about you, and even though you will get answers, they won't be the information you really wanted.

That holds true everywhere, throughout your entire life; not just on this forum.

We don't want to "win", FOD, we just want to educate you. The people on this board aren't vicious people, but your trolling was upsetting and yes we got mad.

I hope we really did help you open up your mind.

I am a PROUD and responsible owner of an American Pitbull terrier. I plead with anyone that thinks the media's bias nature against pits is correct to look up a bite statistic sheet. Pitbulls are nowhere near top on the list. I have grown up on a farm and have been around dogs and other animals all my life. They ALL can and will bite if invoked. I have only ever been bitten by two dogs and both were Cocker Spaniels. But yet I am still not prejudiced against cockers. those two dogs do not represent the breed!! Just as a Pit that has been raised wrong and/or trained to attack should not be the representative of the breed. I could go on forever about the sound temperament of the bully breeds and all of their good points but I do think that they cannot be owner by just anyone. And that goes for a lot of other breeds due to the stubbornness and the need to be the alpha in the relationship. Strong dogs require a strong owner I don't see why this common knowledge gets forgot about when it comes to bully breeds. People need to blame people not dogs!!!!!!!

My mom is telling me to get off of the computer so I have just one short and sweet thing to say, 'Punish the deed, NOT the breed!'

As a proud owner of a Cocker Spaniel I aplaud you for not hating the breed for those unfortunate incidents. Was it two different times? I'm sorry to hear about that...
I've also never been bit by a pit. Ironically I have been bit by a Golden*, and I come in contact with pit bulls way more often than goldens. My Uncle's girl friend's brother raised and fought pits** and kept them ALL in/by the house. He has a 7yr old and a 12 year old. He is Stupid for fighting them, but do you think he would be dumb enough keep those "vicious" dogs by his children? NO! They're the biggest babies towards humans. Just aggressive towards dogs. I think everything that I know is true, or needs to be said has already been said, so I'm Out.

*we were at a park with the day care kids and the golden happened to be off leash running around. He got way to excited and jumped up on one of the k-care kids for pets. I placed my hand on his rump want was reaching for his collar telling him to get 'off' but before I could reach his collar he turned and tore my hand open. OUCH! The owner ran to me, put his leash on and apologized. It turns out he had hip displasha (sp!)and I must've hurt and.or startled him. Who do I blame? Me, for letting him around the kids in the first place, no matter how friendly his owner said he was. His owner for letting him of leash of course, but most of all the Breeder. I can't imagine what it be like to have to live with hip problems, especailly if it was preventable.

** With help from certain people on this forum I turned y Uncles girlfriends brother in and hes been arrested and is currently in jail for drugs and one count of animal cruelty. The dogs have been confiscated and sent to some pit rescue and other rescues out of mansfield because they are illeagal to own there. They suspected I reported him, but then changed there mind because theres no way I would do 'such a thing to the family'. Two of the dogs are actually here in my town. Im convincing myself that theres no way I can adopt either one of them.

Good for you, Brattina! That takes guts and integrity.

I think any breed can be friendly and unfriendly. I think it depends on their personality and hereditary.

Last year a lady owned a Pitt Bull, sweet big baby. When she'd walk the dog the local police would warn her a Pitt must have a mussle on at all times while outside. Sadly she took the dog for a walk one evening without one. As she was taking it for a walk another dog approached it, provoked it and the two got into a dog fight. The owner of the two dogs got inbetween them to try to stop the fight and was bit. Charges were pressed and the Pitt was 'arrested'. The poor thing was made to stay in the dog pound for months while she battled it in court to try to prove her dog was not a mean dog. We live close to the pound and she worked at a station we went to often. The dog warden would meet her at the pound 3 times a days to allow her to take the Pitt out of the pen to walk her. He'd sit in his truck reading a newspaper while she played with the dog. The local vet, and the dog warden both testified in court the dog was not a dangerous dog. Sadly the Pitt still lost the battle and was sentenced to death. Very sad but it seems once people make up their minds a breed is a dangerous breed there is no changing their minds.
