Not sure if you will scroll down that far to read what I wrote but I really wanted you to hear it. . . I agree, I can honestly say, that at the shelter more labs and shepards and even, as much as I don't like it Pomeranians have been put down because of aggression then Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, we do put a lot of pits down but not because they are aggressive, it is more because people hear about one dog attack, pit bull or not and then we get dumped off everyones, at one time, "beloved" pet. Border Collie Babe, Have you ever owned, or even been around a Pit Bull, that was raised and treated properly? We don't adopt out Border Collies to everyone at our shelter until they hear all of the "not so good" things about them, such as the fact that they can and will herd children and if they don't comply will nip at them, why because that is what they were bred to do, Herd. Also, they have a super high energy level and will get bored and destructive if not properly entertained or given an actual job to do. Now don't think I am bashing BC's, I love them I have owned two of them and am enthralled with them but they have their own 'issues', maybe you should do some research on other dog breeds and their instincts instead of coming on here and being no better then the news media who over-hypes everything. I am a complete lover of chows but you know what? There are soooo many bad characteristics about them. And a chow raised wrong is a mean chow, no two ways about it. I know, I do chow rescue. But I never see you on here worried about the fact that chows are one person or one family dogs unless they have EXTREME socialization. Quit bashing pits and read up on other breeds.
