I keep on hearing more stories on dog maulings and more communities around the country are placing bans against the said breed of dogs.

I know people say it's the owner and not the dog, but why are Rotts, Pitts, and Dolfs singled out all the time and the rest are not?

Should people provide proof of obeidence training, should they have to registar? Should owners be forced to turn in their dogs, even if the dog(s) haven't done anything?

Just curious about this debate.

Don't know. I have a German Hunt Terrier that is FAR more vicious than my Rottweiler! She is half the size of a Rott and almost tore my old Rott to shreds.

I'm a firm believer in good owners= good pets.

I have seen Pit Bulls that were taken care of, and trained right thought they were lap dogs, and the opposite when they wern't trained right.

It should be like children, you dont have to get a permit to have or keep them, but if you want to keep em, you'd better take care of them.

"violent tendencies" can be bred into any animal.

The German Hunt Terrier was developed over the last 100 years to have VERY aggressive hunting instincts. Some breeds, like Rotts and Pits also have these tendancies I think, but a lot depends on the individual dog

I've seen good dogs from god homes with good people go on a mauling spree ripping a young girls face apart and killing 3 other dogs. Pitts and rotts are breed to kill. thats it nothing more just like Grey hounds and Whippets are breed to run. You don't expect a greyhound to fight of a bear and you dont expect a breed killing machine to run the 1/4 in 20 seconds. Nor do I expect a Cheasepeak retriver to be good herder and a Shelty to duck hunt well. So why do people think a killer will be a good house pet?

The American Temperament Test Society, Inc. (ATTS) breed statistics as of December 2005 show an 83.5% passing rate for the American Pit Bull Terrier and the American Staffordshire Terrier and a 84.7% passing rate for the Staffordshire bull terrier, as compared to an 81.2% average pass rate for all dog breeds.



I've owned an American Staffordshire terrier for 3 years and I recently had to give him away due to living arrangements. Seventy pound lapdogs will put your legs to sleep in a jiffy. My daughter is four so they were growing up together. She could hug him, climb on him, and practically rip his ears off his head and he wouldn't bat an eye at her. The only time he ever showed any aggresion towards anyone was when they pretended like they were going to hit my ex.

Now you have people who have never interacted with pittbulls and only stand back and see a select few dogs that are mistreated and there for aggressive and call them out for genocide.

Chesapeake Bay Retrievers can be nasty dogs too.

I have 2 Staffordshire Bull Terriers. In England (where they originated from) they are nicknamed the "Nanny dog" because they are so good with children. They are one of the most popular breeds to have as a pet over there. My dogs are so sweet around everyone! They don't care who you are..they will just lick you to death!


Any dog can bite you. It seems that only those "bull breeds" or Shepherds, Rottweilers, etc make the news when they bite someone. I've been bit by more little fluffy dogs ( I have scars to prove it) than by those breeds that people consider vicious. A friend of mine had her face nearly ripped off by a Golden Retriever. Good dogs come from good owners who properly train their dogs.

I've known dogs to go after little children because they were never properly introduced, raised, or they were teased by children (either the kids that they live with or neighbor kids) ...therefore they do not like them.

Yes, there are some breeds which can have bad temperments. If the owner properly corrects the dog whenever it exhibits bad behavior, than there shouldn't be a problem. Sometimes even "good" owners do not properly correct a dog.

Just so I'm clear (because I've had people attack me on a forum before)...

I AM JUST EXPRESSING MY OPINION ON THE SUBJECT.
