Now she calls her(my) pitbull her baby. He is her shadow and I never have to worry about anyone coming on my property without her knowing. People that are afraid of any particular breed of dog are equivalent to racists. Ignorance comes in all forms obviously.

    You are wrong. The breed has nothing to do with it. Any dog can be vicious. Pitbulls are just as predictable as any other breed. Those that don't like pitbulls because they are misinformed and know very little about dogs are definitely equivalent to what a racist is to humans.

    The breed has a lot to do with it. They are indeed unpredictable. They are prone to being aggressive and even vicious. If you let your infant or small child play with a pit bull, you are extremely irresponsible. If that Pit Bull attacks your child which they are known to do you should be charged with a crime.

    A few youtube videos means nothing, really. Pitbulls are certainly less dangerous than humans, that's for sure. In any event, a well trained pitbull who hasn't been used in dogfights or any other barbaric endeavor is most likely not going to be dangerous.

    The sweetest dog I ever knew was a pitbull. Anecdotal, blah, blah, blah, etc, I know it's coming, fair enough, but there are many other variables that go into pitbull attacks other than the genetics of the dogs themselves.

    Aren't they popular in the hood?
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    They seem to be. And while many treat them right, unfortunately a decent amount of them do not. And that's where most of your pitbull issues come from

    If it could be possible, I would support the eradication of the breed. They are a dangerous breed of dog.

    That is some of the stupidest $#@! I've ever seen you post. You are so very wrong and obviously don't have any idea what your talking about when it comes to dogs especially pitbulls. The breed has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Dogs that fight are trained are to fight. Those same fighting dogs are alot of the times when they are confiscated become good pets as long as they are the only dog owned. Obviously special care needs to be taken around other animals or they will do what they are TAUGHT BY A HUMAN to do.
