I wish breed specific legislation would be banned. None of my dogs(I have 9) have ever bitten anyone, but it could happen. After all, they all have teeth. I have no friends so they aren't used to anyone outside of me and the three other members of my family. They are fine when we go to the vets office and things like that, but they do not like strangers on their turf. No problem, we have no visitors. Bully breeds are no more likely than any other to bite. They just get more publicity when it happens. My youngest dog is a pitbull mix and she is a lovebug, even with the other dogs. She is bigger than most of the other dogs but never bows up even when challenged. People need to get over this. It's like the Salem witch hunts.

I hope you guys win the appeal. A lot has to do with owners, but the truth is, any dog can become aggressive. Pits are the dog of the decade (remember when Doberman took heat in the 70s and 80s?). Michael Vick's dogs didn't bite or kill him, though no one would blame them if they had. My experience with Pits has been that they are one of the most affectionate breeds around. They are oversize lap dogs who yearn for their owner's love and attention.

Ever notice that pit bull attacks happen in high crime areas? Most pit owners are middle-class, yet somehow their dogs don't get into trouble. It's not a PC thing to say, but it certainly supports the idea that there are no bad dogs, just really bad (and dangerous) owners.

My pit bull Annie is the best dog EVER! Great with other dogs, great with children, she's a lover and snuggler. Read Pulitzer Prize winner Malcolm Gladwell's article on The New Yorker web site. He debunks all the arguments about pit bulls being viscious. In fact, they aren't even in the top 10 for dog aggression. I don't see Denver banning Dalmations or Cocker Spaniels, do you? They're both in the top 10. Punish irresponsible owners who don't properly socialize and care for their dogs, not the breed!!!

If you are going to ban one breed of dogs out of city limits then it should be for ALL breed of dogs. I think that its on how the breed of dogs are trained. Look at police dogs they are trained to kill but they get to stay in city limits don't they.

Kuddos to those ladies! I think it is ridiculous. Whatever the human race fears we destroy?? They are such a wonderful breed. Society needs to stop with the fear mongering and hysteria and get educated about the breed. Unfortunately there will always be bad owners and irresponsible owners. Why make the animal pay for human error.

It's how you raise the dog that makes his/her personality!

The US Supreme Court has already allowed breed bans to stand, it is constitutional. Why waste tax payers money with this stuff? If you want to be able to own pit bulls, why not breed safer dogs and stop innocent people from being attacked? You know, actually solve the problem instead of fighting each new law that keeps coming up to deal with all of the attacks that keep happening.

I think it's RIDICULOUS. I am a responsible owner of 2 Pitbulls and they are the best dogs I have ever had in my life, and I have owned every breed you can think of. I can think of several breeds that should be banned because of temperament and the Pitbull is NOT one of them. Punish the deed, not the breed. If you raise a dog to be mean it will be mean. I raise my dogs as spoiled babies and that's exactly what they are BIG, SPOILED, PRECIOUS, GENTLE BABIES!!!

I think this is ridiculous!! Pit bulls are great dogs. Its how you raise and treat the dog that makes any dog aggressive. I cant believe they are trying to tell people they cant have the breeds. If I lived there I would surely be moving if this passed. That is just wrong to euthanize dogs bc of their breed. I hope it doesn't pass!

This is ridiculous! Three cheers for those who are moving out to keep their dog!! Lets hope this nonsense ends soon! These dogs used to always be allowed, and no harm was done. It proves are stupid people are becoming.

This sounds like the Gestapo are or have been at it again.Everytime a dog bites someone the so called authoritys want to kill off our pets.Pit b ulls are no more violent than any other dog it is all in the way they are raised.I have a person that i work with that raise's pit bulls, I had never been around them before, when i went visiting him at his home they all were very friendly, and none of them were aggressive towards me. I have dogs of my own and am very understanding of most dogs, I respect the law and i believe in law and order,but i also believe in fair treatment of people and animals. So go people of colarado,win your case. Critter
