many deaths due that breed..
because pitbulls are all different just like people.
because you always here about them eating off kids faces & I saw one shake to death the neighbors cat!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we tend to lump everything and everybody into the same pot instead of dealing with individuals because who has time to differentiate
dangerous to whom?
What is your take on it?
Good question. It's not the dog that is bad, it's the owner of the dog. Pit bulls can be nice or they can be dangerous, it depends on who owns the dog. my son owns a pit bull and it is a very lovable dog. I played with him a lot.
bias and poor media representation. I've known 3 in my life. Two were encouraged to play rough but they were generally ok. The third was the nicest, quietest, calmest dog I've seen in my life.
Their not. It depends on how their owners train them to behave. I have a pit bull and she wouldn't harm a fly. The most she would do is lick someone to death. lol
Yes but if you raise a dog to be evil, it will be evil. If you raise it to be good, it will be good. Its like humans really! If your friend is locking them away whenever you come over because he's afraid they will bite you, then he mustn't have raised them very well. But maybe he means so they don't jump up on you or something.
Lack of understanding. I have 3 pitbulls, if they're raised right they're good dogs just like any other breed.
People with an open mind and actually knows the dog.1,9%
So you see we aren't so divided.
Many people have had personal experiences with pit bulls that are very positive, and many of us have heard these accounts. However, scary stories are a lot easier to remember, and stay with us longer. Anyone whose known someone who was attacked by a pit bull, or who has seen news stories about sad stories involving them, is likely to develop a fear of them. No matter how much empirical evidence we have that may be statistically supporting that pit bulls are good dogs, anyone who has developed an irrational fear is going to have a hard time convincing themselves to believe something new. Once a prejudice has formed, it takes hold.
It's the irresponsible owners who are to blame.
