I have owned numerous dogs in my lifetime, most of them were/are pit bulls. I also work as an animal control officer, and I can honestly say that pit bulls are one of the MOST trustworthy breeds out there. I have been bitten many times in my profession by dogs, but never by a bully breed. People only spread lies about these dogs because they hear lies in the media... monkey see, monkey do! Yes, there have been attacks from pit bulls, but where is the media on other dog breed attacks?!?

I adopted an American Bulldog from the animal shelter 1 year ago and she is the best dog I have EVER had in my life. The night I took her home, a wild electrical thunderstorm hit. She was shaking and trying to hide. I let her curl up next to me on the bed and we bonded that night as if she'd always been my dog. Even the vet said she'd bonded with me quicker than any animal he'd ever seen. She was 3 years old when she came home with me. And she had heart worms. Her previous owner denied her any proper care or attention. I wasn't about to let her die. I didn't care how much it cost, she deserved to live. Never before had a dog gained my complete trust and affection so quickly, but she was the brave one. She was and is completely devoted to me. She was on ordered rest mode for 3 months during her treatment, and I cared for her every step to her full recovery. She gained 12 lbs and knocks me down with all 80 now when I come home. She had to warm up to my new husband. LOL. She never showed any aggression or viciousness, but she supervised his every move toward me until he gained her trust. We both love her with all our hearts. She's been everywhere with us. Loves to ride. Loves people, kids, and other animals. She's very intelligent and obedient. She was attacked by a Samoan Husky while we were out one day. She literally body slammed the Samoan into submission but never laid a tooth on her. I had to patch her lip up from the husky's bite. But she immediately went from protective mode to docile, by my side. She won't even allow her teeth to touch skin. She lips her treats and toys from the hand. But strangers at the door? Yes, she has a menacing demon snarl and bark. She's doing her job. And I will do mine--which is to love and support her as an OUTSTANDING breed! "True Grit. True Devotion. True Love."

I had the high privilage of owning a Bully. Sweetest, most loving and protective dog I have ever had, along with my Rotti. People's make some of the stupidest, most uneducated, naive comments about all breeds of dogs. Currently I own a Vizla/Lab mix. She is sweet and loving towards HER family, but she, by far shows more aggression towards strangers, than my Bully EVER did. And they were reared the same way. So, people, get your dang facts straight. All my dogs I have owned are personal protection dogs. When trained right, they protect when told and love every other minute of the day. I have 3 young children and all my dogs have showed nothing but love, affection and submission to my girls. So, again, get the facts straight and get to know a bully, you may just fall in love

I believe what this article says. It's not the dog that's bad but the owner. My son and I have raised pitbulls for 17 years and have not had any problems with any of them. We don't believe in fighting them but having them as loving friends and companions. We have all types of breeds and these are the best.

Dee, I have no way of putting this that does not come off rude. You... are an idiot. You have bought into the hype of the "lethal bully breed dogs are all time bombs waiting to explode". I have a sweet, cuddly "mix breed" as you call it (by the way, it's mixED breed dear) that will bite in a heartbeat. He is a fear biter, plain and simple. I also have a rescued red pit bull who has been bitten by THREE Llasa Apso dogs and a Pomeranian. He hasn't retaliated once. Dominant personality DOGS aren't for beginners, period, regardless of their breed. Also, a little research might not hurt you sweetheart... APBT's and AmStaffs rank higher in temperament tests than Golden Retrievers... actually, in the top 10% of all dog breeds. Just a few tips before posting yet another ignorance riddled rant on an article specifically geared towards bully owners.

Dog is a dog if one does the research and takes the time to study and listens to the experts in the feild you will see that there is no differences.But the needs are going to be different for each dog. So you have to make sure the needs are met, for the bully breeds dog fighting is wrong so channel the energy into a game of fetch or pulling or othger dog activities out there. This puts the responsibilitiy on the owner to train and seek out other training opportunities out there for the breed. They are all great dogs and apart of are american heritage.

chihuahua'a may bite more but they certainly cannot do anywhere the damage a pit bull does, like guns, in the wrong hands these dogs are dangerous, we cannot test everyone who wants to own one...

also, during the time someone owns a pit and whether or not in the future it will be dangerous is time that is taken away from a shetler dog who has been behavior tested and waiting for a good home, who may ultimately be put to sleep cause that good home never arrives..the home has been used up, as a trial period for a bully dog.......

I own two pitbulls and i think that they are the most wonderful of all dogs. and the most loyal. The bans that they put on these dogs is unfair. All they try to do is please their owner and do what the owner wants. Just because there are some pitts out there that attack, doesn't mean that all of them do. Most of the dogs that attack have been locked up, abused, or fought, and all they ever knew was to fight. More chihuaas bight than pitbulls, and i dont see the chihuas being baned. Or how about the mother who kills their baby in the microwave, or murders them in cold blood?? Are we gonna ban motherhood just because some moms kill their own kids?? Its not right! What we should do is test the owners and ban the ones that make pit bulls mean. Its not the breed that makes them attack, its the unresponsible owners.

i dont think these dogs are proper pets, most wind up in shelters, some shelters make attempts to re-home them, and then that is one less home for a really good mix breed to be placed.


also these dogs are like guns, in the wrong hands they can be lethal weapons....there should be a ban on these bully breeds

I have a rescue dog, Chip, who looks very much like your cover dog. I did a DNA test on him and discovered he was American Bull Terrier, Great Dane, Boxer and Basenji. Yes, he does bark! However,he is the sweetest, most gentle dog I have known, and I have had several. I know it's all in how you rear them. But he is exceptionally kind and gentle. Perhaps because my children are grown,and I treat him as one of them.

Chris, before spewing your nonsense about, please make sure you have a SLIGHT idea of what you're talking
about.
I work at an animal shelter and we get in a lot of pit bulls, at least 50% of our dogs. Not ONE has EVER shown agression towards people. And most of them even loved other dogs! The few that didn't like other dogs were not vicious towards other dogs, but made it clear they wanted nothing to do with them through avoidance and warning growls. Many of them also came from abusive backgrounds, including some that were fighting dogs. And still, they were all a joy to work with. Every single one of them has been placed into a happy home and are all doing very well. In the right hands, they are sweet dogs who's only goal is to
please.

The ONLY dogs that ever were vicious at the pound were a Shih Tzu and a Min Pin. Nasty little things! THEY were the ones that went after the other dogs! And the people
too!

I hear a lot about people dying in cars, must be the cars fault. We should probably ban those too. Especially fast cars, the only need for them is to show off.

Chris most dogs get mean if they are on a chain. Not to mention it has been proven that pits are dog agressive not people agressive. A good friend of mine has a pit he and my boxer are great friends and love to play. Ever since my boxer just wants to play with every pit she sees. pits are amazing dogs when raised by the right people. Any dog can be taught to fight, some are just better at it when given the chance. I could go on for hours sbout how stupid you sound when you talk like that but i wont because i doubt you will even listen.

Chris, it's this type of fear mongering that gives pits their bad rap.


And you must live in an uneducated and poor area since you think that's the only people that own one. I'm a college grad, do pretty well, and all the other pit owners I know are usually middle class caucasions, not rednecks or gangbangers. You're just pushing stupid stereotypes that you hear from other uneducated people.

I have seen countless owners of Pit Bulls say its the owners fault and not the dogs.

Tell that to the DAILY stories of small children, toy breed dogs and actual owners of these breeds who are attacked and killed BY THESE
DOGS!
The majority of people who get these breeds are uneducated and choose these breeds as a status symbol of power as opposed why people usually own
dogs.
There is NO need for these dogs in populated areas other than someone beating their chest to show
off.
My neighbors poodle was attacked and killed by a Pit in front of our house. Pathetic. The owner of the Pit blamed it on the leash!
