kiyote, did you get injured in a furpile by someone dressed as a pitbull or was it something else that has fueled this hatred you have for the breed ?
i honestly do not understand what your obsession is with the constant negative postings about the breed. there are alot more breeds out there that are far more dangerous, imo, than a pitbull. it's a new year, please find another hobby.
Scout I just about choked on my wine for the furpile comment. I recently watched the CSI episode with furpiles.
As for dog attacks nation wide..I have no clue.
Locally we seem to have issues with the moronic owners of rotties and their innocent dogs. A co-worker several years ago was arrested. He owned two rotties and when the police knocked on his door about an abandoned car he freaked and "sicked" the dogs on the police. He is currently in prison. I think he has two more years to go.
I have to say I have been attacked by more chimps then dogs.
when i was a baby a chimp took a nice chunk out of my arm, when i was around 5 or 6 another one decited i must tates good and chomp (in her defence she was going through some breeding stage). Another time a chimp peed on me (in his defence he was locked in a tiny chage hanging from the cealing i would have taken a leek on someone too). I also had one of those monkeys that collect money run across a park bit me and run back, and a tiny little black monkey tryed to kill me but he was in a cage, I was the only one he ever freaked out around they decited he had rabies and shot the poor little guy I was so mad when I found out.
I have never been truley attacked by a dog. one german did growl at me wile i was walking down the street and I screamed and a wimerwarner (SP) pulled my pinky off once but my pinky got cought in his leash and he was after a dog in heat so its not like he was trying to eat my hand or anything it was just a freak.
about a week ago I did see a huge pitty and I had to give him some loving. As soon as i got close enough he licked my face, now in his defence I may taste good i dont know though i udualy dont like my own face. he had pups and boy were they mean I was playing with them and one of the little butt holes sat on me and then licked me. I couldnt belive it I though I was going to die.
the worst case had to be my cusions pitty (died of cancer I belive) he was black and named rader. Ill never forget all he harmfull things that dog did to me. he was always playing with me and giving kisses I mean what dog in there right mind has the right to play with a kid or even kiss it.
IMO pittys are over growen lap dogs with a bad name. alot of people who own them are A$$ holes who want to play thug. They beat them just like the do there women and fight them because they are so cracked out they think its fun to watch.
Its sad that some people treat them that way, its sad to know they are being put to sleep in some citys because of it, and its sad to see the way people think of them because of there past and because of a few wangs.
If i can get over being attacked by chimps I think others should be able to get over hearing about some A$$ hairs dog attacking someone. if I had the chance to play with a chimp or any other primate agin would I? Of corse I would.
I have been around alot of the worst breed of dogs. pittys, rotts, Dobermans, and germans. I have never had one hurt me. They were all well traned they were all very loving and they were all great dogs. That one that snarled at me im not counting, I know he was locked in a small cage his whole life. I walked past that cage at least 20 times a day and not once did I see anyone out there. if he had good owners Im sure he would ahve been a great dog
