Retreivers are bred to retreive, scent hounds are bred to track, and pointers are bred to hunt game. These are specific tasks that they were bred for and these breeds all have a very strong urge to do what they were bred to do. Anyone with a Lab knows that they'll drive you nuts trying to get you to throw a ball and they'll retreive until they drop. They just can't help it. A pitbull is no different. They were bred to attack and fight and despite good training, the breeding remains.

It kills me.... Most of this reading is FEAR.. and FEAR from HYPE........
You give a pitbull to a punk that has NO IDEA how to raise a dog, and you have problems.
Any of the BULL DOG doggies will RUN THE SHOW, if you do not. Alfa dog training is a must.
Tying a dog out to a tree is no way to raise these dogs, some one above mentions the shelters, they are full because people that couldnt raise a Tea Cup CHIHUAHUA try to get THE IMAGE a big bad dog.... when they find out how much work, or worse get bit because the dog has no respect for them. They get rid of the dog citing that "THAT DUMB DOG"
This breed is not for the weak hearted.....
It was not made for stupid street punks...
In the right hands this is the greatest breed to walk the earth. This was my senrty that walk to every childs room before laying himself down to sleep.
This is my GAURD that woke me for every BUMP in the night. This was my Friend that guarded MY HOME, MY FAMILY, with out care for himself.
For you people that dont know this breed, please dont judge all of them by the actions of this one dog......

R.I.P Christian's Northern Amadeus Thank you for twelve great years and for watching over my little ones....!

RI Builder

I'm using Vermont Mutual Insurance in ME and Merrimack Mutual Fire Insurance in MA. The only reason for the 2 companies is Merrimack will not write in ME and I had to go with another agent to keep the costs down.

Now, if things have changed, please don't tell them I have a dog.



Oh. And I fully agree with Big Mojo. Most bad dogs have bad owners. A very good friend has had nothing but Rots and Dobs. We've known each other better than 27 years and I have not been bit yet. Punk ass kids with a bad ass dog. Bet neither can run quicker than 1000 FPS.

Make your best bite count.

I agree with Mojo I came soo close a while back picking up a Pit Bull and Lab mix called "Junior" that needed a new home due to a divorce He was 9 months old and the sweetest dog. I only mewt the owner and dog once and he let me walk right up to the vehicle and pet him... I regret not giving him a new home

Also dont think other breeds aren't aggressive...I had a dalmation that would wag his tail at you then bite you when you went to pet him. He was fine with the family, but real quircky..

What Mist said. We represent about a dozen personal lines companies and Boxers aren't on any of their lists. I have seen Tarantulas, Iguanas, and Ferrets on some lists though.

Last dog bite we paid for was when this little 12 year old s%#t belly flopped on a sleeping Collie and the dog took his upper lip about half way off. I told the mother I would have bitten the little SOB if he had jumped on me while I was sleeping. I don't think it helped any.

Exactly...it is all about fear. Pit bulls have thier pros and cons just like any other breed and people should choose a dog based on thier needs and what they can handle. If a person isn't willing to put forth the work to turn a pit into a great dog, then they should go buy a yorkie. But this breed has been ruined by thugs and punks who want to look like they belong in an episode of MTV Cribs. Pathetic!!!!

Pit Bulls makeup 2% of the population but are responsable for 1/3 the fatal attacks. Could be because of thier owners, I only see hoods with them in my area.

This breed was nastylong before our current batch of thugs and punks were even born. Vicky and his crew don't help but you can't lay this one on MTV. I feel for Mojo, obviously the man loved his dog, been there. You shouldn't have to work so hard to have a pet, if you do,go live in the mountains, keep it away from innocent people and animals.When was the last time, or anytime, you heard of another breed killing someone. Bites sure, but this isbrutal.

Exactly, you're proving my point. It does take WORK.....work from the owners, not the dog. If the potential danger is there, then maybe the OWNER does need to have the animal away so that nothing tragic occurs. But the theme here is that it is up to the owner. You can't just ban a breed because people aren't being responsible owners. There needs to be a deterent. If your pit gets out and hurts someone, you pay dearly, end of story.

Look, first I feel really bad for Big Mojo. I lost my dog in March and it's tough...they're loved and one of the family.

That being said, if there is a breed of dog that is more agressive than others and will attack for unknown reasons then it has no place in crowded communities. Responsible owners or not, these dogs attack. We've nothing telling us that this owner wasn't responsible. It was his SIL that was killed for Gods sake. You talk about making someone pay dearly if their dog injures someone...well what do you do when it kills someone. This is not a rare occurrance with this breed. You read about something like this once every few months? When was the last time you saw an article about a Collie that attacked and killed someone? This particular breed belongs on a farm protecting herds. Not in a city or the suburbs.

Dogs are no different than kids, if they are raised by someone that teaches them what is allowed and what is not they will turn out fine. Look at at all the punk teenagers running around today are you going to say that it's their nature to be thugs? No the people that are raising the thugs are to a great extent the same idiots that buy pits and allow them to become a menace.

Maybe 'most' dogs are no different than kids, I could agree with. The punks and thugs are the way they are because of upbringing (or lack of it). They were not predisposed at birth to be that way. Any breed can be trained to be mean. It's the stories you hear about the great dogs that just snapped one day and killed someone that make you wonder if it can be WORKED or trained out of a dog that is predisposed tobe a fighter. It never seems to be the owner that is attacked either, I could deal with that.

My sister has been a vet tech for 23 years and will be the first to tell you that she has never met a bad Pit (dogs raised as pets). She has however met bad Goldens, Labs, Cockers and so on and so on. My wife and I share ours lives with 4 dogs and 10 cats (half are rescues). Seven years ago I was brought a 2 month old puppy, half Pit half Golden. Its mother was a fighting dog that got knocked up by a neighbors Golden. The owner had stood by while the entire litter except this one died. A friend of mine "took" the pup brought it to me and asked if I would take it in. No one knows what the future holds but Sam (short for Samson) has for 7 years been a wonderful dog. Intelligent, loving (will lick you till you drown in slobber if you let him), is just as goofy as the day is long and does great with the cats.
I have met alot of Pits in my life, some fighting dogs and some not, some were Katrina rescue dogs all were just as friendly and loving as any other dog you will ever meet. Any breed can be raised to be mean and any breed can snap and turn on a human.
