    As they say good dog.
    My wife has a shitsu and when a pit bull was nearing my wife one day the shitsu believe it or not attacked the pit bull lucky for my wifes shitsu the pit ran away. If I didn't see it I would not have believed it,the loyalty of some dogs is amazing.

    o small dog fight hard...not the size of the dog...the size of the fight in the dog...

    when my son was around 3....he disappeared....my husband thought he was upstairs with me...i tought he was downstairs with my husband...when we discovered he was gone....we didnt panic till we had searched 200 hundred or so yards in all directions...when husband said....i am going to walk down the creek....i totally lost it...and then a pick up truck drives up and says...yall missing a little boy....
    they told us that our son was walking up the road with our doberman....they of course realized that the child was too young to be out alone and got out of their truck to get the boy....bad move...said zack our doberman at that time..put them back in the truck and would stand between my son and any car that went by...basically nosing my son off the road to the edge....they attempted to leave one of them at the same place to watch son...dog would have none of that either...said he was keeping a large circle clear around the boy...my husband got in truck with them and went to where the dog and son was...only then did the dog let anyone touch my son....zack was not an agressive dog..but he was my son's protector....he was a great dog...

    Wolves domesticated humans.

    It wasn't easy for them, because we're rather stupid, but after a while we got it.

    Woof! Woof! Good hairless monkeys!

    They're the greatest. It pisses me off when we get reports of attacks by "aggressive" dogs. The owners are so arrogant, it's obvious that they are the ones that should be put down.
    There are no bad dogs, only bad owners.

    Time and time again I see man's best friend selflessly protecting humans. I'm glad the dog will be ok. Talk about deserving of treats.

    Green rep for the truth. My pitbull mix has a HUGE crush on my neighbor's 4 year old girl. He kisses her, put his head under her hand so she can pet him, rolls over on his back for her... he is SO gentle with her. And I'm talking about a dog who is VERY rough and tumble. He and I have wrestled and rough housed for years and I have the scars to prove it.

    I've met the sweetest, most playful pitbulls and extremely aggressive, ready to attack anything pitbulls and the case 10 out of 10 times is ALWAYS the owner.

    I have a big dog.

    And he's a big chicken.

    Have always had dogs. Always will. When the chips are down, I really only trust my dog. And that is how I treat them and speak to them.
