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

Pit bulls were never known as "nanny" dogs. That MYTH was begun in 1971 by Lillian Roth, a lover of Staffordshire terriers who wished to direct peoples' attention away from the fighting dog roots of pit bull breeds. Pit bulls are currently killing around 15 children each year in the USA and maiming dozens of other children. NO dog is a "nanny" dog, of course, but pit bulls would be the very last dog anyone would choose to "nanny" their children.

A couple of months ago two newborn infants, in separate incidents, were killed by their family pit bull. To propagate such a dangerous myth is to be responsible in part for the mauling, maiming and killing of the hundreds of children maimed and killed by pit bulls. Even BadRap, a pit bull advocacy organization based in California has debunked this cruel and dangerous MYTH.

When choosing a pet dog for your family, choose a breed proven safe over the years and that would NOT be a pit bull. Pit bulls were originally bred a couple of centuries ago in England for the one and only purpose of killing each other in dog fighting pits for blood sport with gambling. They were NEVER intended to be kept in homes as pets. When adopting a pet dog, choose very carefully. Pits are not a good choice, especially if you have young children in your home. Is it worth the risk to you? I hope not!

Pit bulls are never appropriate pets ever. Don't be fooled by the lies pit proponents propagate that "pits are just like other dogs". Sadly, pits are nothing like other dogs. Pit bulls maul, maim and kill more people, pets and livestock animals than all other dog breeds and mixes combined. Choose your pet dog carefully. Choose life.
