Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

For God's sake - park the drama! I can match article for article about the origin of the breed. At the end of the day it's about the owners' understanding of the breed and the treatment of the animal that predicts the nature of the dog. Pick your pet staying within your limits of ability to understand EACH INDIVIDUAL DOG! There. How's that? All of my experience (not the written word) with this breed had been positive and loving. You'll get out of your dog what you put in the dog and no, I don't feel at all responsible for anyone else's decision to own this breed because I don't know the temperament of the dog's owner. Since the owner is largely responsible for the dog's behavior, feeling responsible for a specific animal's actions is ridiculous and shows major bias based on what is read about the breed. Trashing an entire breed because of an individual dog's actions is at the very least narrow minded. The folks who rescued this animal know the most about the nature of their pet since they rescued him. We can argue all day about the particulars and it means nothing as to the outcome of this saga. I hope all involved are pleased with the outcome as I've no more inclination to use this thread as a personal debate source.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

Wow. I've rarely seen such incredible and out loud, in-your-face arrogance about this breed. Here, I'll edify things. Pit Bulls were originally bred to be NANNIES because of the nature of the breed - loyal, protective, sweet and stubborn. Great qualities for a nanny, wouldn't you say? And Mary Ann Redfern is right when she says "pit bulls are not like any other breed" . That's why there are so many breeds to choose from. All the bully breeds (from the Bull Mastiff down to the little Boston Bull Terrier) have specific qualities a potential owner should know - stubborn, loyal, sweet, protective. I agree that you should choose your pet pretty carefully because the ignorant folks that have pit bulls don't allow for their specific traits. If you abuse a chihuahua and piss him off, he'll go all postal on your ass! Know your breed. If you can't handle a bully breed then DON'T GET ONE - duh. But don't trash a breed that you clearly don't understand just because you wanna sound off about it. My 2 daughters own 3 pits between them and I always help them train them. It's a big responsibility to own any dog. Pits should never be your pet on a whim. You want to bitch about vicious breeds? Try a dalmatian. They are pretty twitchy by nature, or a chihuahua. Chihuahuas are pretty temperamental and quick to ire. Just educate yourself especially before you make public posts about pits. You're just embarrassing yourself.
