I agree with Matthew! I don't believe in "bred to fight". These dogs are not born fighters they are taught to fight by irresponsible owners!! I take my dog to the park and although fights have broken out from time to time she has never been involved!!

I'm going to have to agree with Matthew and a few more points. I work for a pit bull rescue and we typically take in older dogs a year or more and thanks to our temperment test they pass, they are very well behaved dogs. Yes, some dogs do require some work or just don't like certain things, but that's just them personally and what they have been exposed to. It can be help and tolerated with the proper training and owner. I know you had the best intentions writing this but you make it sound like they are ticking time bombs...and I know that is far form the truth and to believe in such. Prior to the rescue I volunteered at the local SPCA and they proved your agrument invalid as well. Some dogs require more some less, some don't require no more then the regular. I would never blame the breed...ever. they are dogs, its a risk to own a dog in general. I don't care how small or big it is you make sure you pick the right dog for your family and lifestyle, make sureyou socialize them (although it takes time it's never to late), you get your dog involed (there are many pit bull clubs across the country where they show and work), you be the owner of your dog...heck to tell you the truth out of all the pit bulls that I have delt with and the horriable backgrounds where they came from, it was my lab mix that I raised from an 8 week old pup that I have had for over 11 years that bite...It was my fault of course but still never blame the breed. Yes you sign a slient contract to take on all the crap when you own or advocate for the breed but that's just with it takes a special person or group of people to stand up for them because they are dogs and like all dogs they can not speak for themselves.

I just want to say there are several points that I disagree with. In the face reality you speak of pit bulls attacking animals and people like other dogs have not causes just as much harm. And never taking your dog to the dog park. That's ridiculous. Overall this article is good but there are some points that show the same oblivious prejudices we try and fight against.
