Well, we got my pit bull from the Humane Society of Michigan and...my mom didn't want him-since he is a pit-but my sister, cousin, step dad, and i went into the room with him & he is the friendliest dog i've ever had(until we got our German/Australian Shepard puppy). And after we got him i told people and the assumed he was vicious-only because that's what statistics show..

    I believe all dogs have their "vicious" moments.

    Pit Bulls I don't think are the "vicious" people know them to be it's just how they are raised, If you have a Pit Bull raised for fighting yeah he is going to be a very mean dog same with if you neglect them.

    It's not the dog itself, it's how it is raised.

    They are NOT vicious. It's just a stereotype. They are a very strong breed and people used them in dog fighting and so that's how people became to know them as vicious creatures. Their real nature is sweet and nice. And when people say that their pit bull was never in a dog fight but attacked them for no reason you know that's a lie
    because they would never do that unless you abuse them. So therefor pitbulls are NOT vicious!

    Well, seeing as my dad is allergic to dogs, I've never has one...

    I think it depends on the owner. All the vicious pitbulls on the news had horrible owners.

    I think it could be trained to be either evil, or a very helpful sweet dog.

    But the thing about Pit Bulls is that you can own one forever and it be calm and sweet and then snap. There are people who have thought the same way, that their dogs were sweet and whatnot b/c they've had them forever and they've acted fine, but then one day, out of nowhere, they lose control.

    That's a lie they would never attack for no reason unless they are abused or trained to be vicious.

    All dogs have some kind of vicious behavior at times. Now if a dog frequently attacks and kills, then it's the owner's fault, not the dog.

    All dogs are naturally vicious, you just have to trigger the hunting response. Alternatively, paint yourself up to be a submissive pack member, and then move in on their property, and you'll see some pretty nasty behaviour as well.

    Last year the number one dog that bit the most people was a cocker spaniel..why you ask.....because more people own one and they are more likely to get bitten by a pet than a stray dog...but I digress...pits or any other animal can be taught to play nice. Its the human factor that makes an animal mean....The reason many buy a pit is because they want a mean watch dog, or the status of having a "killer" dog and they are taught to defend, bark, bite anyone.....its up to the owner how their animal will behave, just like your kids....what you teach them will stay with them.....this is just my opinion
  • .Kira. kahless 2009/08/04 14:12:21

    Well i agree with your opinion. For so long my mom believed the "statistics" and the so called professionals had to say about the pit bull being naturally vicious. Well, she believed that until she met MY dog...
