Ya know what makes me mad?! When people bash pitbulls and when states what to somehow "ban" them and other breeds! what is that? Any dog can become aggressive if it's not socialized or trained right! I've seen an awful picture of a pitbull mauling a child, they are laying on the couch together, sleeping. ha!! RUFF!
I agree with all of you. I've never owned one but I think they're too sweet and cute to be thought of that way. If people would grow up and not listen to stereotypes, It would make me so very happy. =)
Oh, my! You all are SORELY mistaken. Pit Bulls are sooooo agressive. They attack kids with DEATHLY kisses, and they LOVE to lay with kids!!! It's very scary :D (Heffanator, just FYI, I use a TON of sarcasm, so don't worry, I love Pit Bulls :) ) ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596
If pit bulls were aggressive as people claim, they'd be in the news all of the time for attacking people! Oooh, wait... (News from this week, USA only.

My friend has a Pug, an English Bulldog, and an American Pit Bull Terrier. But, she favors her APBT out of the threesome... and I don't blame her! Whenever I go to her house, her APBT runs to me, and lays down in front of me, asking for a scratch. After, she covers me with kisses! She is sweetest thing in the world; she wouldn't hurt a fly!
I hate people that don tlike pitt'si breed them and i knwo there not a mean dog and there one of the smartest dogs righ now i have 4 and a Mother that haveing a litter soon so people that say pitt are bad get one and take cars of of it then tell me there bad
Any dog is as mean as its owner makes it. It really gets to me that certain dogs get labeled. I remember when dobermans were like the number one horrible dog. I owned a dobie who was the sweetest girl on earth. It just makes me so mad. (I'm being nice here)
Dobermans are sooooo beautiful! My mom had one when I was itty bitty and he HATED men. ha! her didn't even like my dad! My mom would take him to see her dad and he LOVED her dad. They can tell when someone doesn't like them, too. I want a miniature pinscher or a manchester terrier, too!
