This is a most unfortunate event and I am yet again extremely saddened by another "Pit Bull" attack. I feel very bad for the parents of this child
however, banning a breed of any animal is insane. If a person is unwilling to educate themselves about their particular breed of dog and their dog
goes out and causes harm, damage or death to anything or anyone than it's the owner that should be punished not an entire breed.
I have owned Rotties and Pit Bulls exclusively for over 20 years now. There isn't another breed of dog I would have except maybe for mastiff's. These
dog's are majestic, intelligent and very brave when handled with care and intelligence. They are not breeds that should just be bought and thrown into
a yard or pin and ignored. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS THING TO DO to these dogs!!!!!
. I have also raised four children while owning these dogs.
My most recent are my two Pits who are being raised with my now 13 year old son. I personally have never, ever had one of my dogs of either breed ever
look at my children in a strange manner let alone attack them. As a matter of fact, my daughter who is now 19 and away at college used to walk our 125
lb., Rottweiler when she was five. I always make sure that there was no inbreeding and that my dogs lineage can "Legally" be traced back at least 3
I am obviously against ridding society of Pit Bulls or any breed for that matter, I am for throwing the book at any owner who has not taken the time
to train their dogs and stay on top of their job as owners.
Again, I am saddened by this and it is very very unfortunate
Meet my dogs Chako/APBT - Chako Pit Bull
Society American Pit Bull Terrier
Chako, is by far the best dog I have ever, ever, ever, ever owned!!! So very gentle and intelligent. I actually learned more about this breed than
ever before because of Chako!
And Shattas Staffordshire Terrier
To those who speak out of ignorance (I am not using the word ignorance as an insult to anyone
) instead of complete knowledge and intelligence,
please know that these dogs are NOT the problem...IT IS IN FACT THE OWNERS or BREEDERS
who need to be brought to justice for murder, negligence
and anything else that the law will allow when they are "ALLOWED"
to inflict bodily harm, damage or anything else that is just not simply
allowed. Yes, most of the time the behavior is rewarded and is encouraged by "BAD OWNERS"
and "Greedy DISHONEST Breeders"
As with any living organism, there is so much that goes into raising and caring for these dogs and it's a non-stop way of living just as with a
