I don't know if anyone caught it in the story, but this dog is responsible for attacking and killing another dog.
Too many warning signs.
If the dog is aggressive, why did the neighbor not have a fence put up?
Yes I caught that,
So how is it the dogs responsibility there wasn't a fence or that the child was able to get to the dog in its own territory and attempt to take a bone from it?
A dog can own property cant it if the property is left to the dog in a their owners will?
google is your friend if you really want to read and hear that sort of thing just do a search.
You sure can train out aggression in any breed, just as any breed can be deadly.
You keep posting your facts and will mine
Is the dog going to stay with the previous owner, does anyone know?
No.. The owner owns the dog so all that the dog has is also the owners.
Also... Why do you have to write a million responses? Why not just address them all in one or a small number of posts? You have like 100 posts back to back.
And you keep saying: Yeah.. The same google that shows this link? The 10 MOST Dangerous Dogs Guess what's number 1??
You most certainly can not...

Ok, I agree with you on breed types and I do agree that pit bull is a broad term. You make a valid point in that aspect and I'm with you on your examples. When I mentioned pit bulls, I do imagine the more aggresive types such as most if not all Staffordshires. Now, there are others that can have just as much natural aggression, even though some of the same breeds do not. Pete, the lil rascals version was an american bulldog. Made lovable by TV. At the same time, those can be aggressive, in the same way all dogs can. Staffordshires on the other hand, can be monsters. The one in question appears to be either American bull terrier of some sort or an american staffordshire terrier but not 100% since I have no clear picture of the dog. Still, I'm not going by the term so much as I am what took place. I do still feel that most pitbull breeds should not be kept as "pets". They are guard dogs, hunting type killers and do not mix well with children.
I appreciate your response on the questions I asked. You were perfectly levelheaded in your response and you gave exactly what I was looking for.

The dog was being a dog. The boy walked into his territory and picked up a bone that he was chewing on. This was as much on the babysitter as it was the dog for not paying attention to the child.
