It’s not the breed, it’s how they are raised/s......

I once had an employee ask me if it was okay to keep their pit bull when their new baby was born.......Absolutely, positively no was my answer.....they took my advice and probably saved their child’s life.......

I trust the parents are in the hell they deserve, but you know, maybe not.

I just hope people don’t think only pits are an issue around small children. As far as I am concerned small children and large dogs just don’t mix. Small children can be very mean to dogs without knowing any better until they are taught to be kind to animals. When any animal is hurt or pestered to the point of being angry they can lash out in pain or fear. The issue is if the dog is very big that snap or biting done in self-preservation mode can be serious and deadly to a small child. I know people say they watch their child and dog very closely, when small children are in the house adults are busy and cannot possibly watch the dogs or children every single second.

“But it was such a nice dog. We don’t understand.”

They force parents, with good reason, to put their kids in car seats but allow parents to keep a pitbull in a house with children. Go figure.

It depends on the individual dog. When I was a kid we had a labrador that was the scariest thing you could imagine when strangers were around...But at the same time, my sister who was a toddler at the time escaped her play pen and pulled the hair out of his tail. The dog didn't lash out or even try to move away while she was holding onto his tail, he just sat whimpering.

I suppose such dogs that can be trusted with your life are rare though.

It’s not the dog , its the owners.

Shoot pit bull owners.

Reminds me of the retard who had a python that killed his or his girlfriend’s baby during the night. If I were to screw up that bad, I’d just blow my brains out. There is no way I could live with myself.

the exception i’d make’are black labs, they are the most kid protective dog breed i know of. unless you don’t consider them’to be a big dog, i am not sure if they are classed that way.

The Modesto animal control and cops have been out all day hunting a pack of dogs that killed 160 goats last night. One of the pit bulls was killed so far. This is a farm area.

No, it’s the dog. Vicious breed, no matter who has one.

You're not Chet99, right?

I don't really believe pitbull are vicious. Whenever I see somebody else pitbull in the park or in the beach I go near the dog, oftentimes I pat the head of the dog but I can't pat the head of someone else chihuahua or even labrador because they might bite.

A True Story
A man was out walking his Pitbull off-lead through the woods. When the Pit turned and started walking off in a different direction the owner called the dog back to him. The dog didn't listen; he obviously had something on his mind. This was so uncharacteristic of this particular dog, who always followed his owner, always listened to every command, that the owner of the Pit decided he had better follow his dog to see where he was going. The Pitbull led him to a secluded part of the woods, where an autistic boy had gotten himself into a deep mud hole and could not get out. The Pit proceeded to walk right up to the boy and lick his face. This story was told to me by the father of the autistic child. He stated, "The dog saved my son's life that day. Had it not been for that Pitbull, we never would have found my son."

Black labs are crazy. Every black lab I’ve had or known is a psycho kill every other dog, but be the nicest, most gentle animal when it comes to humans.

They’re like a Steibeck character. Dumb and loyal to a fault. Doubt they’re commies though.

The most protective dogs for kids that I know of are border collies and German shepherds. As a child we had a Shepherd/Lab (yellow lab) mix. That was the most protective dog we ever had. Check this out.

Little girl plays with 14 German Shepherds

I would not trust 14 pitt bulls with her.
