Monday of last week, my niece was out walking her dog. Another persons pit bull broke loose from his leash and attacked my nieces dog, nearly killing it. After a hefty vet bill, the dog is doing so-so.

Two days after that, my next door neighbors pit bull killed my cat. Again at random.

Both of these attacks were vicious.

Both of the owners (different towns, different dogs, different owners) had the same story, "The dog has never acted that way before."

As an RN of 18 years, I have treated many children and adults who had a dog that turned on them, again with the same story as stated above. Majority of these dogs were pit bulls. Cocker Spaniels rate second.

A co-worker of mine had a pit bull and another dog that she raised together. One day, again, out of the blue, the pit bull decides to make a snack out of the other dog.

I am not a pit bull hater. I just want people to be aware of their nature. Also, in Oklahoma, if you own a pit bull, your home insurance increases.

Back in the 60's, I was looking out of my bedroom window and I watched my neighbor, a German lady, walking her 'Pit' & German Shepherd. She and her husband, who was also German, had both dogs since they were puppies.
10 minutes later, I left my house, & met her husband, on my corner, (he was walking home from work) & we started talking.
I glanced over to the opposite side of the expressway, that runs adjacent to this corner, and noticed the lady, lying on her back, with the 'Pit' shaking his head, violently, back & forth, around her face & neck area & she was frantically waving, & hitting the dog. (Both dogs were unleashed)
I told the man that something must be terribly wrong.
Because of the distance, between us and where the lady was, he yelled something in German, directed to the German Shepherd, (these dogs only understood commands in German) and with that, the Shepherd grabbed the 'Pit', in his mouth, and flung the Pit off the lady.
We raced over, and thank God, she only had minor bites.
That night, they had the 'Pit' put down.

One really never knows, how a dog may act.

Believe me pits can turn and my comment was now I see why they cause so much damage when they do. Luckily, so far, my dog has shown the temperment of the boxer in him rather than the pit. My yorkie on the other hand attacked a kitten the other day.

I would back my cat to beat your Pit Bull if it turned on her. At least my cat has been in fights whereas your Pit Bull has no fight experience and so wouldn’t have clue what to do.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I will admit that my dogs have major problems with cats on the property that they are not pals with and visitors often don't make it home unfortunately should they go 'pack' on them.

mean, like kind are subjective value judgments.

a little study of animal behavior may help those who like to use the words "natural" and "things as they should be" in discussing the world.

My name is Snoop and I'm a pitbull. This is me and my best friend Merlin.

I am in advanced obedience and will soon get my CGN certificate. It will mean I won't ever have to wear a muzzle where BSL exist. BSL is Breed Specific Legislation and in places where it exist - dogs based on their looks are euthenized and those lucky enough to have owners have to wear a muzzle in public for life. This is me doing search and rescue work searching for a badly injured dog down a ravine where others couldn't go due to the terrain. It was hard work..I had to swim in deep water, climb log jambs and walk across fallen trees. Did you know that the first dog awarded a medal in the war was a Pitbull?

Image


This is "my" cat and I'm not eating him! I live with 3 other dogs, and 20 other animals who are seniors or special needs at my moms private sanctuary. I'm not senior or special needs but I'm a goodwill ambassador for my breed.

In places like England where BSL has existed for 10 years...dog bites have gone up 40%! In cities like Toronto in Canada , dog bites have gone up 20% and no Pitbulls there for 5 years since BSL. Just goes to show that it's the owners who turn to other dogs and train them to be mean. Blame them not the dog!

Lastly....I am just like my brothers but am treated with hatred and fear because of the way I look. Kinda like racial profiling...isn't it?

Look how happy the Chinese Sheep Dog Merlin looks! Your pit is either small or you got one big cat there C!

Redshirt, I'm not kidding, I had that exact same couch, same color pattern and everything.

Trixie is a gorgeous dog and lucky to live with you and your family. He looks so healthy and is obviously well cared for.

Noooo nooo Magic Santa, you're getting my dogs mixed up...Panda (the one with the eye patch) was my rescue from Hong Kong. Merlin is the hairy one. Gilligan,is my newest one but not in the photos.

I said 20 animals...that should be 30...13 are bunnies. The dogs never bother the bunnies and view them as part of the family group. The spayed/neutered bunnies live free range in two Mastiff cages..which was purchased for them and not the dogs.

The only time the cats are annoyed is when Merlin tries to round them up herd them back into the cat room.:O)

----------
Thank you Mick! Nice of you to say that!

Herding cats? There's an exercise in futility.

Trixie's a female pit/lab mix- and a rescue dog. She's 11 years old, and still acts like a puppy sometimes. She's very big for a pit at 75 lbs.

Chrystal, Snoop has a lovely coat- the blue hair pits always look so unique.

I did toss out the couch! I have the love seat and the tables that go with 'em, I have a great painting of a desert scene that looks great with the couch.

My pit was playing with the bassett and he ran his head into a pipe! He now has a notch on his skull and seems to like it.

It's not that pitbulls bite more often than any other dogs, it's that they have stronger jaws than many other breeds. The locking jaw is a myth, but they still bite hard.
Of course, so do scotties.
