I Guess Rover Likes Aged Beef

Another week, another story about a Pit Bull attack. I’m so sick of hearing the inbred morons who own these dogs saying things like “it ain’t the dog, it’s the way he’s brought up.” Okay, a Pit Bull raised with love and compassion might be a little less likely to maul/attack/kill its owner’s kid…but there’s no getting around the fact that these dogs are savage beasts? I know, I know…other dogs attack people, too. However, the bad reputation attached to Pit Bulls is well-deserved.

If you have this breed of dog in a house with a kid, you’re a reckless idiot who deserves to get your child taken away from you. There’s no telling when a Pit Bull is going to snap because it hasn’t been fed, it sees a child as a threat, or it simply decides it wants a taste of some human flesh. I believe the city of Denver starting rounding up these dogs last week to get them off the streets. I love this idea. No one needs to own such a savage beast as a pet.

    When I was taking my dachsund to the dog park in Winter Park, I would pull up and even before we got out I would make sure, no PIT BULLS were there. If there were, we drove off and found another place.

    Many breeds are just plain MEAN. Why someone enjoys this type of pet is beyong me. But then again, there are people who enjoy snakes. By and large, however, you don’t hear many “snake got loose and attacked three children” stories.

    I think there’s going to come a point when there will be stricter requirements for certain pets. It’s why we don’t let people have Bengal Tigers in their homes… it’s just not safe for all concerned.

    Are you kidding me? You honestly think that banning a breed for the actions of a few (compared to the number that exist) is going to solve the problem? It used to be Rottweilers and before that Dobermans, who knows what it will be next decade. Statistically you are more likely to get biten by 9 other breeds before a pit bull. The real problem is the people that own them that dont raise them and socialize the dog.

    Anyone who thinks that the breed of a dog makes it vicious is just flat out unknowledgeable about behavior. Genetics do play a part in behavior, but only one part of three. Pit bulls, and more specifically, terriers in general, were bred for hunting/working. They are more aggressive to other animals, but pit bulls were specifically bred to be very caring of humans. I know a lot of other terriers (Jack Russell

    anyone who thinks that a dog is aggressive because of the breed could not call them selves knowledgable in this area or an animal lover! It is the owner, not the dog. I am sick of defending my pets day in and day out. Just like when a child grows up in a neglectful, abusive home, they tend to turn out aggressive or troubled. We do not, and cannot by law discriminate against a persons race or background as to where they can live or where they can visit, it is ridiculous that we can do so with animal.
    Pit bulls, by nature are not people aggressive, they do however demand alot of attention, time and love. They are not outside, guard dogs, as many people mistake them to be. I have 2 myself and they are the biggest teddy bears. You idiots out there who think it is the breed go and talk to animal experts and vetrenarians and see what they have to say. Most vets will tell you that with the proper love, attention, and training, pit bulls make the best family dogs. The prominent breed in a pit bull is a terrier, terriers are among the most intellegent dogs around. I have owned 5 pit bulls in my life and they remain loyal, extremely smart and treachable, and not aggressive by nature (accept towards other animal).
    So, all you close-minded morons who think that only red-necks, or idiots own these dogs, you are wrong. I am not minimizing all of the dog attacks, but I am also not exaggurating like the media does. Whenever there is a dog attack, even if they do not specify the breed, a picture of a pit is shown, and people make assupmtions. How does the old saying go when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me? I am sick of being made out to be an ass, when you people who believe everything you hear, and yet know nothing about the dogs are the ones that are asses!

    I can’t believe some of you people! Do you know what you sound like at all? You are being unfair toward harmless animals. No, just because they are a pit bull, they are more inclined to bite. Do some research and get some education before you speak, type, whatever. I gaurantee if their breed was called something else, they wouldn’t be as publicized. I have a one year old pit mix who I rescued and not once nor will he ever bite anything or anyone. If you see or know my dog, you know he is uncapable of doing much harm. He is literally afraid of his own shadow… and the vacuum… and the feather duster. Please think before you speak and act because not only are you coming down on the breed, you are coming down on the owners who are not “reckless idiots who deserves to get their children taken away from them.” We are people that are caring enough to bring an animal into our home and lives without being prejudice about their history or appearance. Us pit bull owners aren’t any different from anyone else and we surely do not appreciate rude comments and actions placed on us because of our dogs. Poodles are just as inlined to be aggressive as any other dog and are actually banned in some areas because they were intentionally bred as guard dogs. Dalmations, German Shepards, Akitas, and Chow Chows were also bred for other purposes than being friendly, so maybe you should watch out for those breeds to if you’re in the market for being afraid of the world. And Jenn, maybe you should take a chance and let your dachsund play with some real dogs for a change.
