I just posted on another thread involving a dog attack, may have been the same one. Probably a full 95 percent of Pitbulls are owned by people who want a large, fearless dog that they can make aggressive. Pitbulls fit that, but are not inherently mean. The people that own them make them mean and then when the dogs really hurt someone, they claim the dog “was never aggressive” to try keep from being liable. It’s a lie that has made the breed itself look bad.
I’ve lived on my farm here in Texas and owned many dogs over the last 50 years and including Pits, Chows, German Sheperds, Dobermans, etc. and they were all lovable pets because they were raised to be.
Interesting analysis. I’ve wondered why one never hears of Labs or Collies mauling people.
