Do you think it's right? These innocent dogs getting put down before they have even harmed anyone? Not all of them are dangerous. It's the way they're brought up. It's just that people train them to fight because they're strong.

I've had loads of dogs (all different types) and just after christmas someone gave us a pit
and he's the best natured dog ever. My baby cousin come to our house and the dog doesn't ever jump up on her and she hits the dog and pulls his ears and he hasn't even snapped at her. I think it's absolute bs that these dogs are dangerous.
What do you think?

Pitbulls are nice, they are only mean if they are raised by asshats, if they are they are really violent

I love pitbulls, and have never met a mean one.

A dog's disposition is not determined by its breed asomuch its owner--if you beat a dog, starve it, and treat it like shit, it will grow up to become a very bad dog. Period.

...unfortunately for pitbulls and other fighting dogs, they have the misfortune to be picked by men and women who usually treat them badly. Which thus makes them the stereotypical "vicious" killer.

People have stereotypes against dogs. Some people look at pit bulls, rottweilers, dobermanns, boxers, bulldogs, etc., and claim that they will turn on you. I mean, you hear all these stories in the news and press about little kids getting their throats ripped out by pit bulls. They must have either done something to provoke them, or that the dogs were abused. An abused dog eventually loses its trust over people in time, and since that they are afraid, they have no choice but to bite.

It's the way that they were raised that determines a dog's nature around humans.

Humans put down any animal if it'll benefit other humans.

Most mamels have adapted to the amount of recourses in their enviroment, but we humans take recourses from everywhere. Still thinking its unlimited.

I find that a dogs personality only reflects that of its owner and humans just won't admit it

Im sorry, but any breed of dog that jumps a 12 foot fence and kills a child for no reason deserves to be elemenated. They ARE a naturally violent breed, as they have been breed that way. Pitbulls were bread to carry violent traits to make them good guard dogs. They are now naturally violent at random, and there for a danger to everything around them. And they are not a natural breed (not many dogs are). Humans breed them into being pitbulls.

Humans are a violent breed also. We didn't even have to be breed to be killers we are that way completely by nature alone. Did you ever think of that? We had to make something to be more violent and now we think just because some of them attack people, mainly children who can't understand that other things feel pain too so they hurt it, that they are too violent and need to be eliminated. There is only one dog that I will say is truly evil, not a sub category just one dog. Other than that dogs react to people from their past experience with, and this may shock you, people.

So we should just let a bunch of dangerous animals attack children because it's not their fault?

It's not about the dogs, sure, you can raise them to be good. It's just not a risk people should be taking. We were wrong to make a breed so adept to violent acts. So that's why people are trying to straighten it out by eliminating the breed.

Have you ever seen what children do to dogs? They bring it upon themselves.

Children don't know better. If you tell a child not to touch something because it's hot, guess what the child will do?

So you're saying we should kill off pit bulls that attack children after what the children do to them because the child doesn't know any better?

Because they are a danger to innocent kids.

Children don't mean to annoy dogs, but face it - they do it often. When there are dogs that are set off by any little thing, it's not a good idea to have them around anyone.


Besides that fact, Pitbulls have also attacked children unprovoked.

Pitbulls kill children, and grown humans and other animals, unprovoked.

The pit bulls who do anything unprovoked, or go off at any little thing are trained to do so. They are treated horribly and so they react with the only thing they know. It's not a good idea to have children around any type of animal, they will get it to attack them.

Ok now tell me the background of that pitbull, how was it raised, how was it treated? Treat it bad enough for long enough it will snap just like a person would. Or do I need to start pulling up stories about acts of random violence?

Lol. I wanna see one of my brother's friends get my fish/spiders to attack them.

It's awkward for you to be talking about humans as a "breed," haha.

I dunno. People should not be actively killing dogs that haven't done anything, but if these are dogs that are prone to violence, then people shouldn't be keeping them as pets at all (or allowing them to procreate).

The restrictions for owning one of these dogs should be tighter. It's possible to like.. keep a tiger as a pet, as long as you live in an appropriate area, have a proper enclosure to keep it in, entertain periodic inspection checks, etc. The same could be done for violent dogs so that people who really want one can get one and still insure that the animal and the animals (including people) it could encounter are both safe.
