I have known many Pitbulls. I have owned one myself. In all the years of my life I never met a Pit that was vicious. I have met far more vicious poodles than Pits or Rots, or Dobies. Any dog can be made to be vicious. It all depends on how you treat it. No dog species that I have ever heard of is born mean. PEOPLE make them mean.
The Pits that I have known have always been energetic and extremely loving. My best friend has 3 of them and 2 very small children and he has no concern about the dogs harming his kids. People see the animal on the idiot box and make blanket assumptions based on little or no information.
If you want to ban something ban these asshole owners that think having a mean dog makes them somehow seem tougher. Don't ban the breed.

maybe this site will help everybody.
The RPB Breed Information Center
pay close attention to the menu on left.
especially the history, myths and the dose of reality sections.
there is no such thing as bad dogs, just bad owners and trainers. animals weather wild or domesticated,
respond to their environment. or perception of danger. dogs don't get their jollies by running around biting people or other animals unless they are taught that.edit on 8-5-2012 by hounddoghowlie because: (no reason given)edit on 8-5-2012 by hounddoghowlie because: (no reason given)

Any and all assumptions made about a breed of dog based solely on their supposed "breeding" or "genetics" are invalid.

Can you identify a pitbul? I dare you to give it a go, bet you can't.

Of course you can call them cute. Pitbulls are amazing creatures and often adorable. Your choice of pictures was unbelievably biased.
