No one seems to pick up on that logic. \0/

Logic? It's you that needs to be neutered.

Paul, that shows how LITTLE you know about dogs. CLEARLY, I am a girl. And for your asinine comment,Read More it would be spayed. Schmuck.

Can we kill M Vick and the puppy doe guy

#John - I did see the stats. I also know that such studies often are flawed, with dogs beingRead More misidentified, etc. - sometimes even by professionals. I will never advocate for a breed ban, because that is an ineffective policy that punishes an entire classification based on the actions/incidents associated with a relative few in terms of the entire population. I will always advocate for increased education of owners, what it means to be a responsible owner - including providing the dog with proper training, exercise, nutrition, veterinary care, socialization, licensing, microchipping, adherence to leash laws, etc. - and that should be for EVERY dog owner. And for the record, both of my dogs are "fixed" so they will never add to the pet overpopulation problem. Both went to obedience school, and the PB earned the AKC CGC on her first try. She was also the ONLY dog in the class who passed. While prepping her for that test, she went to a crowded mall where a plate of food was dropped on the floor in front of her. Most dogs would have jumped on the opportunity to scarf up what was on that plate; not her. She looked to me for direction, which was "leave it" - and that's exactly what she did. While training towards becoming a certified service dog, she flew a round-trip flight 5.5 hours each way, in coach. A TSA agent happened to be seated two rows behind us, and when he saw my PB at my feet, he made some comments to another passenger that weren't very nice about my dog, based solely on her breed. He didn't know it, but that passenger he was talking to knew me and she didn't tell him. However, by the end of the flight, he reversed his position and told her that he would never have believed it if he hadn't seen it for his own eyes - but he's flown many, many flights and had never seen a more well-behaved dog and watching her work - which included staying quiet the entire flight, escorting me down the length of the aisle to the lavatory and back, without batting an eye at any of the many other passengers on the plane - changed his previously negative view on PBs. Unlike some PB-proponents who deny a PB could attack, I admit they can - as can any other dog. It often comes down to responsible ownership and management of the dog, rather than the actual breed.

#Harriet. All those positive things can be accomplished with other types of dogs. I think that isRead More what perplexes non-Pit Bull owners. Why would you take such a risk with a dog that was created for bull and bear baiting and has such a sordid history -- when they do attack.

What I think is really scary and a public health threat is the violence PEOPLE do to pit bulls. WeRead More kill millions of them every year. They are tortured in fighting rings, look at what Vick did. Humans are a very dangerous breed. THere should be laws or something to protect the public--and animals--- from people.

#Kim, all the more reason for restrictions, such as spaying and neutering. Less animals to be hurtRead More in fighting pits or put in the pound, only to be put down.

Mad as hell... April 22, 2014 at 11:28 pm
Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.
Savecritters....you lost the argument as soon as you wrote "...owned by countless movieRead More stars..." What the hell does that prove?
tribble April 23, 2014 at 06:53 am
Yeah, Miley Cyrus' pit bull killed her little doggie last fall. The other dog that just died...it'sRead More being covered up how it died. That's why all the articles that mention coyote say "allegedly".

Boss Hogg and Anthony. Thank you both. Seeing where it's coming from I'll take that as a compliment.

Wrong blog Igor, but I do agree with your opinions on this particular blog.

Its called compassion. I can read just one thing in the news about a child being hurt, or even likeRead More you mentioned, a tale like Old yeller- and it just hurts, the sadness of some things. You sound as if you are even more sensitive- but don't ever think that having such compassion is ever a negative- the world needs so much MORE of it.
