Where I grew up it wasn't uncommon to see dog's "hooked up"
Don't see that anymore.
Still legal to own.
Still the responsibility of the owner.
Crying about a breed on a website does nothing.
I would trust a Pitbull long before 90% of humans.
Guns, dog attacks, car wrecks.
Common denominator = careless thoughtless humans.
On topic is shitty pet owners who let their animals run wild.
If you are here to breed hate.
Post on the other threads.
Many "shitty" pet owners just happen to be Pit Bull owners. Not all...but too many.
In the inner city big metro areas....that statistic jumps to nearly ALL because Pit's are USED as drug house protectors and for intimidation. In the inner city a pattern of Pit Bull ownership reveals mental illness, a violent past or criminal activity very often.
Miami-Dade outlawed Pits decades ago.
That single brave move has saved tens of thousands of dogs from horrible abuse and countless people from a tragic ending.
The Pit Bull load shifted to Broward County just north. On any given day, there are likely several thousand Pit Bulls held in horrendous conditions and kept in small cages in dark warehouses and homes waiting to be used in fighting.
In rural areas Pit Bull fighting criminals hold fights largely without fear and often are known to corrupt law enforcement.
"Good" Pit Bull owners would actively help expose the fighting and abuse. But they rarely do. Why?
Several shows on animal planet on just that. Those caught are prosecuted. There are also puppy mills, hoarders, bad breeders of every breed. All human caused.
Shepards, Rottweilers, Dobermans , etc. require human responsibility. I should have the right to own what is considered the AR15 of pets to protect my home.
My friends American Pitbull who is also my friend.
American in the fact he is lazy, overweight, and sleeps all day between eating and shitting.
Despite the fact he would love, greet and kiss an intruder to death, makes him a horrible guard dog.
Only his bark and unearned reputation keep any intruder from even attempting.
Now what are you even arguing here?
Bans? Forced euthanasia of millions of pets?
Are you for personal choice and responsibility? Or just for what fits your views?
Or just hate Pitbulls despite the thousands of attacks by a variety of breeds, all blamed on the humans BTW?
I lived in the Country and my dog was loose but stayed on the 100 acrs with not problem. I had a tracking collars on the little Pup. Moved to the City and I just fenced in the yard. He still runs free and has adjusted well. Got him a buddy PUP and they play and roam the yard. I am surprised he has not dug out of tried to dig out under the fence.
Rest of my neighbors are very considerate and always know where their dogs are. They may come over to say hello, but go right back home. The one guy just lets his run loose all day no matter the weather either.
Interesting....why on earth would you equate a Pet with a Rifle ?
Police shoot and kill Pit Bulls every day. Even the largest Pit Bull has ZERO chance against a gun.
Why not take the responsibility for home protection into your own hands?
My friends Pit Bull of 7 years for no apparent reason attacked his wife one day and mauled her arm so badly she can no longer use it.
The dog was euthanized. Neighbor across the street was attacked by his Pit Bull 2 weeks ago.
Why are these stories so frequent?
In metro areas like Miami, NewYork, Chicago, Baltimore etc etc etc....YES. ABSOLUTELY. Ban Pit Bulls there.
And NO...do not euthanize not one single Pit Bull ever. Just prohibit their ownership in large metro areas because it goes along with criminal element and dog fighting far too often.
Let those already there live out their lives. In time the numbers will go down.
Having an animal is not a "Right". Like driving, it is a privilege. Guns in America by contrast are a Constitutional RIGHT.
Hate PitBulls? Me? You don't know me. I've rescued Pits that were wondering the city streets and helped them.
But you may have a good suggestion / point.....
It should be law that you may NOT own or keep a Pit Bull if......
1). You have a history of Domestic violence
2). You have any Felony convictions where violence, animals or weapons were involved.
3). You may not own or keep Pitbulls if you have a mental health history
4). You may not own or keep Pit Bulls if you have been convicted of a drug offense.
5). Dog fighter should be a capital offense for the host or promoter.
Not me, I've trained my dog to go only in the neighbor who lives beside me that had Hillary signs last election in their yard.
Just remember, there are no inconsiderate dog owners, just inconsiderate dogs is all.
I've had pit bulls and dobermans. All easy to train, non aggressive, good around kids. Getting them as pups are best but I adopted one male pit bull from people that were moving into an aparment, couldn't keep him. One of the dobies adopted one of my cockatiels and they hung out together. Depends on the dog's background and how it's treated. You can make most any dog aggressive or not aggressive, at least from what I know about dogs the last 65 or more years.
