Pitt Bull again....When will people learn
These dogs are not bread to be hang bag dogs, cute little things to keep around the house for kids to play with. Their bred for violence, to protect their keeper and their selves.
Have you ever owned a PitBull???
Or is this just another massive generalisation out of this Thread???
I had a PitBull for 11 years... Died of Cancer... Never attacked or bit a single Human being in his life, Adult or Child!!!
Another PitBull Know-It-All... When will people learn!!!

You do have to realise German Shepherds as powerful as they are, are not so defensive as a Pit...
Staffs & Pits then it now belongs to them, so there is a slight difference in the two!!!
A mate has staffys and if anythingy, they're even dafter than my dog
I'll take your word for pits, I do think a dog is just what you make of it, whatever the breed.

I was actually referring to Bones & Treats not Loved ones... German Shepherds are probably more defensive for Family!!!
I should have made that clear!!!

Sorry, from what I understood, pitbulls are a specific breed, in fact pitbulls are banned in the UK due to the hype over them.
Maybe it's a transatlantic thing?
Most folks wouldn't equate staffys and pits at all apart from the bulldog heritage.
I have no love of dogs, this dog harmed a child so it should be put down I am not going to hind my feelings on what i think the fate of the dog should be.
But i will say this, the OPs title is interesting, "FACEBOOK rushes to defense of dog....".... "FACEBOOK..."
The implication is that FaceBook, as a organization is rushing to defend this dog when that is simply not true, its about 40,000 of FaceBooks members who are expressing their freedom of speech and right to peaceful protest to stand up and say they think that the killing of a dog is wrong.
I see nothing wrong with that.
They can protest all they want, I might disagree with them, I am sure that perhaps even some of the people who work with FaceBook disagree with them but they have as much right to argue that the dog should be saved than those who say it should be killed.
We cannot just demand that Facebook remove the page, because we disagree with the moral standing of some of their members, that would be censoring freedom of speech.
Its like when a horrible thread appears on ATS, a example i can think of would be when British former PM Thatcher died, i saw loads of posts and threads celebrating her death. That does not mean that ATS as a organization or as a community was celebrating her death only that a few members where and they have as much right to express their joy at another's death as much as those who condemn them for doing so.
Again, I say kill the dog.
A human life is always worth more than that of a beast.
