    And so, you oppose banning this breed?

    My family has the most lovable Brown Lab,ever.if you are her family. But if she senses danger to us,forget it. She actually quarrels with me if I do not provide treats, but is very protective.

    Most dogs are. The dog that will never be my favorite are mini poodles!

    Madeline, if plenty of citizens leave handguns laying around for kids to play with, the consensus on a breed of dog is not going to change their mind about child safety in the home. Hell, why not go the whole way and remove fencing regulations for swimming pools!

    Then the kid will learn to survive or die.

    What do Aussies get a new born? A Dingo pup! NOT!

    I hope members don't get me wrong, I do really love dogs, but I'm funny about kids being mauled to death.

    It's possible. I'd estimate that it was between 32" to 36" tall when standing on all fours. I always pictured chows as being much smaller, but like I said - I know little about dog breeds.

    They are a dangerous breed.

    It doesn't even matter how they are raised, I've seen very well cared for pit bulls turn in a second.

    They are just dangerous and they have the ability to seriously hurt.

    I would eliminate the species entirely.

    They have the same mentality as a tiger or lion, you can raise one for your entire life but then suddenly they can flip on you.

    I have a few anecdotal horror stories about the breed from friends.
    I also have a story of my own from my own childhood in which I'm still bearing the scars. And that wasn't even a pit.

    Basically at that point its risk management.
    Is there a potential? Yes or no.. plan, don't risk.

    With children, I wouldn't want to risk them being hurt.
    I had 2 goldens and a neighbor down the street had a pit that came on my property and attacked and mauled one of them and a month later mauled the other. Both survived but barely with horrible lacerations on the chest and front legs. The third time it came on my neighbors property and attacked their golden (that was a pup to one of mine) and I grabbed a shotgun and killed it. I remember calling the sheriff's dept and saying I just shot and killed a neighbors dog what do I do. They said nothing we are sending someone out. I explained the entire story and what happened and said the dog is right over there under the tarp I had thrown over him. He said I was taking responsibility for my neighbors personal property and had nothing to worry about and that he would deal with the owner and left. About a half hour later the owner showed up in his pickup and I put my revolver in my belt behind me and went out to greet him. After the second attack he had assured me that he had gotten rid of the dog so I said the dog you supposedly got rid of is right over there under that tarp. This worthless piece of shit clipped a leash on it's collar and drug it over to his truck and hooked it on his bumper and drove away with the dog bouncing in the dirt behind him. A friend of mine said he saw a black and white pitbull floating in a drainage ditch about a half mile from my house.

    I have little respect for the breed or those who would own one. This was about 1980 when I lived in Jupiter FL where about every few months you heard of some kid being mauled by a dog and 99% of the time it was a pit that was responsible and the owner declaring "he's really friendly". I say bullshit, the dogs are nasty not to mention butt ugly and don't know why anyone would own one.

    Anyone adopting a pitbull is an idiot.

Sadly, most Pits do end up in the shelters because people can't handle them Terriers also need a lot of exercise. If you do not work them out they get into trouble out of boredom...same with all terriers. My little savages both attended Puppy Preschool and the oldest one's best friend in the class was a Pit. This Pit had a sad story, the owners rescued her and she was disabled when they got her. Someone threw her out of a moving car and the dog broke its back and left her to die on the side of the road. Sweetest dog in the class. It really isn't the breed, IMO, it is the training and the owners who do not know what they are doing with challenging breeds.
    That sounds eerily familiar with what some of the owners have said about their pit after it has put some kid in the hospital. The dogs snap and when they do they are nothing but a set of jaws that are determined to kill, not just win a fight.

I could put my hand into its fur, and my hand would disappear from sight before I reached the dog's skin. And the fur felt light as air.

    On the other hand, the dog was insane. You know how many dogs go ballistic when new people enter the house, and it takes a half-hour before the dog finally calms down? This wasn't one of those dogs. It was still bouncing around, barking, batshit crazy, an hour later. She put the dog in the kitchen and closed the door - and the dog spent the next hour barking and loudly hurling itself at the door repeatedly. When she told me that she'd been taking it to obedience school, I nearly choked on my drink.
    I now have a labradoodle and he isn't much of a guard dog. He may bark when someone shows up but if they have a milk bone and I'm not home I'm sure he would let them in and be glad to show them around.

    The only thing my Basset Hound is good for is laying in front of the door and not moving when you try to open it.

    You literally have to push him out of the way lol.
