First thing they say when they hear about this is 'It was not our dog. Our dogs love us".

i've lived with a pit bull for about 7 years, never bitten anyone. lives with a damn cat and another dog and gets along with both. when he sees a new person he rolls on his back and presents his belly.

dogs don't bite people, owners do.

You'd have a major s--t storm if you tried to ban an entire breed of dogs. You'd get flack from both the left and the right on that one. And just for the record, my breed of parrot is illegal in 22 states (crop hazard).

I hate stories like this :(

Its #16 and I bet thats a puppy too...

In recent years, the dogs responsible for the bulk of the homicides are pit bulls and Rottweilers:

www.dogbitelaw.com

"Breed specific problem with fatalities" Im not talking about bites, im talking about dog bite related fatalities or DBRF since you like to abbreviate. If you are going to argue, try and argue my point not throw in biting in general. Hell my cat bites me all the time, I know that my cat isnt going to get me in a position where my life is in danger. Take my uncles 3 retarted peikanese they bite me for trying to pick one up....yet again my life isnt in danger.

And contrary to what you think you know about me, I dont buy into 99.9999% of what the TV says and PETA are a bunch of crybaby's who dont care about animals, only the chance to get their face on TV.

Pitbull type dogs. There ya go. They can't even specify the particular breed. WHat is a pitbull type dog? Is that like a boxer type dog? A german shepherd type dog? Take that useless poo somewhere else.

I also know that my dog will not make my life or any one elses life in danger. I wish I could say the same for the fuged up lab that lives down the street. Or the boxer I owned previously.

My dogs are like my guns. My guns wont kill you, people who own them will.

You can't ban dog breeds, but you should hold the owners liable for their actions. I wouldn't own a pit bull...not because they are dangerous but because they are ugly as fug.

I'd have no problem with Pit Bull apologists if they were always the ones to get mauled.

But like Roy from Sigfried and Roy once said, "See, tigers aren't the problem. It's people who don't know how to - SWEETJESUSGETHIMOFFME!!!!!!!!

Yeah im sure the owners said the same thing about their dog.

You have to be the first person ive ever heard say that a Lab is dangerous. Let me guess its a giant black lab that growls or barks anytime a person or dog comes near is yard or home....gee sounds like anyother dog to me.

Pitbull type dogs like the APBT or an AMSTAFF is what they are refering to! Dogs, unlike guns which have a safety and need someone to pull the trigger, have a mind of their own and are prone to killing without someone telling them to do so.

I agree about holding owners liable. If your dog attacks someone, you should be heavily fined and in some cases, do time.

Isn't the issue more of a "what the animal is capable of doing" rather than a "these animals bite people less frequently than many other breeds"?

I'm sure shih tzu's bite the sh*t out of tons of little old ladies every year.

But the little old lady usually doesn't die.

I have a pit bull myself, and they are definitely a dangerous breed. It takes a very dedicated owner to manage one. It takes a ton of training on the part of the owner, and most importantly: You NEVER let a dog like that roam; always stay with it. My dog is never outside of our house without someone supervising him. Pits are a great breed if you're willing to do the work, but the popularity within the thug/hillbilly cultures has been really detrimental towards overbreeding of poor/negative traits.

Bottom line, any dog with the power of a pit bull can be a killer. I honestly wouldn't mind some kind of special license requirement for owning a bully breed dog, akita, doberman, etc. That would cut down on at least some of the idiots that buy them and don't put any effort into raising them correctly.
