Very simple: Your dog maims someone else, you get charged with assault and battery. Your dog kills someone, you get charged with Manslaughter. Your dog kills you, it's listed as a suicide.

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.


Your exactly right, the problem not just with Pits but dogs in general is that idiots think they know how to train and handle a dog just because they've grown up with them.

fuging tools. Let big government get even bigger my having to license breed specific dog owners. I guess you all are right, in no way could some piece of poo gang banger be responsible for the actions of their animal. It has to be the dogs fault.

FTR, I've known of only one gamedog that was a man biter, and a famous one none the less. He was put down b/c of that. Like I said in a previous post, YOU, OR THE MEDIA, WOULDNT KNOW A PITBULL FROM A BANDOG IF IT BIT YOU ON THE ASS.

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.

These dogs are not dangerous. You are a responsible owner, plain and simple. Miami-Dade county has outlawed the breed for about the last 10 years or so. You think there are no apbt in the county? All they are doing is driving the breed underground and making people more afraid of it. So when a cane corso, a presa, a dogo, a ....... bites someone, it's automatically a pitbull. Get your head out of your ass.

You are really not very good at having a discussion are you? Calling someone an idiot or telling them to get their head out of their ass because they disagree with you will generally cause people to ignore or disregard what you are saying.

they call them Pit Bulls for a reason, it's not because they're cute and cuddly, if you want a dog that will impress your friends get a Swiss Mountain dog they are huge and built like a horse, but they are also teddy bears when it comes to people.

Pit Bulls are great. It's a Zionist conspiracy that says otherwise.

First off, the Pit Bull was a good great breed, and still is if you get a pure bred and know the blood line, BUT, problem is that people have ruined the breed by doing some odd things with breeding and all of that jazz. Lots of breeds have been ruined like this over the years, Cocker Spaniels, etc etc.

HOWEVER, the mere power of the bite of a Pit Bull puts it into another category guys. The pounds of pressure and "locking" ability of this dog makes it dangerous, coupled with bad breeding and then the human retard factor, make it more of a liability than a "man's best friend." I know they could be good dogs, but I have known people where their dog just goes crazy in a instant after owning him for years (Pit that is) but it happens with other breeds too, but their BITE is not even as close and dangerous as a Pit's.

All in all, I think this breed should be banned UNLESS you get a license to own it, and take some kind of classes that teach you how to care for a dog like this and also learn the power of the dog and all of that. Then a owner can be held more liable. Also, some places require Pit owners to have insurance, I also think that should be required. This would cut down on the morons that get this breed and ruin it and the only people that have it are people that know what they are doing.

This way you meet in the middle of the argument.

There's a reason you can buy a bb gun at Walmart and take it home with you the same day, but you have to obtain a permit to own a handgun...a pistol is much more dangerous in the wrong hands.

Likewise with a lab vs. a pit bull. A dog is not to blame for what its owner does/does not do with it, any more than a gun would be to blame. And if you read my post, I mention a number of different breeds that should be regulated; I'm not picking on pit bulls. There has to be some sort of legal accountability required of people who choose to own such powerful animals.

I would pay for the privilege of owning my pit bull, wouldn't you?

Here is catofwars argument....

1. We are idiots
2. We dont know what a pit bull is
3. We are F'ing tools
4. The media tells us what to do/think
5. Big gov runs us by making us own a license for something.

You have to have a license for a car right? and a gun, and fishing/hunting one as well right? omg omg omg omg omg omg I need a license, you have to own a license for a bird like a Toucan....I dont fear a Toucan teaming up with another toucan and rip my face to pieces, still have to be allowed to own it.

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!!!!!!!!


Toucan Sam said "just follow your nooooooooooossssssseeeeeeeeeeeee"

For the record, the Rott has 10x the jaw pressure of a pitt, they just don't lock.

I own both, and Mastiffs as well. Been around these types of types most all my life, and I'm not talking about just one or 2 of them either, literally hundreds or more, and never been bitten, and witnessed anybody else being bite, unless they didn't belong on my property.

Cooter can vouch for that when he get's back from the doctor getting his stitches removed. :D

I will always have them.....period.
