I am not sure if this has been posted. The google on this computer is broken, for some reason.

This was an incredible story I found on drudge. It is amazing what animals will do for us humans, especially mans best friend, dog. Pitbulls have a bad reputation, but having owned quite a few I find them to be very loyal and very sweet dogs. They are great with kids and strangers and other pets in the house. I had one that took care of newborn kittens with the mother cat. Anyways, there it is. Mods, if its up, take this down. Thanks

I was expecting to read that the police had shot the dog, but it wasn't which is a nice change.

Pit bulls are one of my favorite breeds, very loving and playful dogs. They get such a bad rep because of a few that went a little crazy.

I knew my Pitty was hard headed, but... not THAT hard headed!
I'm always amazed at what a dog will do to help protect it's family.


(now I'll just wait for the pit bull haters... )

Well that's a first a pit doing something good.

I'm no fan of the breed but this one might be different.

This is just one story that leaked out about the good pitbulls do. My pitbulls were amazing, and I had one that slept by my kids crib on the floor and was up everytime he stirred. She would let us know he was waking up. I can't even tell you the stories of the awesome things she was capable of. She was my best friend.

I'm glad this one is different to you, if ever given the chance you should foster a puppy sometime and see how sweet they really are. As long as you raise them right from when they are young and don't reward bad behavior it will be a great dog.

Guess it's hard to explain for me at this point after I just got off work. Great story though.

Pit Bulls are the sweetest most loyal, loving dogs I have ever owned. They are just big puppies with a golden heart. I can see mine being loyal to the death actually. One has grown up with my son, and follows him everywhere. He will not allow any "unapproved" animals or people come near him. He warns them away. They are truly a beautiful animal that were once Americas Dog, but were given a bad name by cruel people. Hopefully we can spread education and Deny Ignorance about this breed.

Note: They sleep in my bed. I would never let a monster in my bed! Only cutie cuddlies

Always so quick to blame others instead or ourselves when something goes wrong. Why would that situation be allowed to happen? What could have been done to prevent it? Were the parents aware?

I have alot of pitbulls that roam the neighborhood and I have three children all under 5 yrs old. I introduce myself to the pitbulls and know they are all good dogs. I do this with my kids so they know HOW to approach a dog. Don't be scared, don't run, and be friendly. Dogs sense fear and wonder why you are scared of them. Educating kids on how to approach a dog is very important, as important as teaching them gun safety.

Don't think for a second I'm not prepared for a vicious pitbull. Does anyone know how to fend off a vicious dog attack?

The "Crazy People" will say "wow, this dog must really be a menace if it can take a bullet to the head and survive".

I'm not really a fan of pit bulls per se, but I absolutely adore Doberman, and they often get a similar bad wrap.

I wonder whether part of the problem with these breeds is that they're too loyal. Loyalty is a valuable trait like faith, but without the capacity for logic and reasoning it can be downright dangerous.

I don't think for a second that these breeds, whether loyal or not, should be outlawed - but I wonder whether this trait which people generally consider a positive thing might actually be part of the problem.

You have convinced me. I am going to be looking for a pitbull puppy. I didn't think I was ready for another until I read your post.

LOL seriously?
Is the average pedestrian child/adult prepared? Apparently not if there are Pitbulls killing innocent bystanders and such, including BABIES and pregnant woman, so often...

Did you not receive the message from ATS site owner about fueling racist debate? This isn't a black or white story, this is about a black and white pitbull that got shot. Please check your inbox, I got the message.

I have a Wolf Hybrid....for 5yrs. Nothing happened with three kids, two that were toddlers and one newborn when we got him. I would say that my Wolf Hybrid has the same temperment as a Pit Bulls and there are no dead kids here and plenty of respect between both parties.

Maybe, just maybe, the kid could of been hitting the dog over the head with a damn hammer and the dog was protecting himself from being dead and the parents who never watch there kid in the first place had no idea. You dont know. This is a news story and its all about ratings.

Pit Bulls have been on this planet before 1985 when you first saw your first story about pit bulls killing someone.

To the other posters who spend there day watching out for vicious pit bulls you all are crazy people. Just sayen.

Owner neglect. Scared people acting funny. Dogs ARE instinctive, and can sense fear. If people are more responsible, things like that wouldn't happen. There are more tub deaths per year than persons being mauled by pit bulls. More by cigarettes. More by ignorance. If your gonna condemn the dog start with the person first.

Education is important, as stated above. Education, supervision, education. I can confront the most vicious pit and turn them into my dog. It is a dominance thing, its an animal. If it comes at you, stick your arm out and smash it on the nose. Its bridge will snap and it will suffocate. Crisis averted.

Watch your kids at all times. If a dog can maul them, they can be hit by a car, kidnapped, shot, fall out of a tree, or eat some bad mushrooms. Supervision.

Know that a dog senses fear, but you have no reason to fear the dog. You should know how to kill it quickly and effectively. A dogs instinct is to grab the closest thing to it, being your arm. It will chomp down and you can smash it than. I know this isnt feasible for kids, but you should be supervising them.....

Im sure loyalty can be a problem in an untrained dog, as with all breeds. Mine have been taught to stop barking and walk away when i say"its ok, friend" . Usually they figure out when i start taking to the person nicely its not a problem. I once had an over loyal chihuahua that tried to bite the crap out of everyone who got near me, and it was my own fault for not properly training him. Its not really the breed, its the way they're taught. I actually have to lock up the dogs when my mom comes over, not for fear, but cause she doesn't want to be licked by or sat on by a 50lb dog! They sit on you then look over they're shoulder begging for a rub.

True, blame the "owner" (or abuser) not the individual dog.

Hmm, I wonder the most abused and over 'bred' dog type out there, though.
