Brother of a friend of mine owns two pit bulls.
He dearly loves these two beasts.
And he was terrible unhappy when, for whatever reason, these two sibling pitbulls decided they hated one another. (he's had them both at the vets to deal with the injuries they'd inflicted on each other in 2008)
So, last week when he was attempting to separate these two beasts who were tearing each other apart, one of them ACCIDENTLY bit through his hand.
I don't keep pit bulls in my house for much the same reason I don't keep dynamite in my house.
Even though I do not think dynamite hates me, I still think keeping things which are capable of killing me, and things which have a history -- a well documented history -- of killing their owners and their children or injuring them terribly, out of my life.
I just don't want to find myself in a position where I am forced to put down a beast that I would undoubtably love, just because it made a mistake.
Sadly, that tragic tale too often happens to pit bull owners.
If you need a chick magnet, find one that can't kill you.
i attempted to break up a dobie and a boxer by inserting my hand into the fray to grab a collar.....the doctor said i was lucky to have a arm much less a hand left...people rarely notice the scars anymore....but that was my bad not the dogs
and may i ask...how fucking stupid does one have to be to put their hand in between two pit bulls?
Pit Bulls that are not mistreated or improperly feed are no threat to anyone except strangers that think they can just walk up and pet them. BUT your right, I would not have ever had a pit bull with children in the house.
Ohh as to dogs killing you, hate to break it to you but any midsized or larger dog can easily kill you if it decides it wants to.
I have a staffordshire terrier, they are cousins to the pits. Did you know that both pits and staffies were once referred to as "the nanny dog" in the U.S. and UK? My dog is as gentle as a lamb, and great with kids.
Very cute thanks for sharing.
Stupid in love, I suppose.
Love makes fools of us all, doesn't it?
You're not breaking shit to me, lad.
But check out the stats and you'll quickly discover that pit bulls have a very sorry history of attacking their owners or their children that no other breed comes close to having.
Pitt bulls are absolutely lovely dogs until they're not.
And the thing is that pit bulls are extrmely formitable once they latch down on their targets.
For the life of me, given the huge number of equally formitable dogs that are out there, breeds which do not have that history of freaking out and turning on innocent children, I do not understand why any person ever brings one of those into their homes.
Unless they're drug dealers of course.
Seems like every dipshit drug dealer badass wannbe I ever met thought owning a pitt bull made them bad ass.
But they have an excuse...they're fucking idiots.
I had a pitbull when my children were babes. He was a very sweet dog.
The pitbull we had did once grab the arm and hold it in his mouth of a man who was attempting to hit my three year old son.
The mother dog had refused to feed this pup so he was hand fed from the day he was born. He was one of the easiest dogs I have ever had to train.
I can say I have never been a drug dealer.
Yeah, I know, Rod people like you tell me that all the time, and I fully believe them and you.
I too have known wonderful pit bulls.
Sadly the breed has a bad rep because the breed has a history of killing and terribly maiming people.
We can go around and around on this and it never goes anywhere.
Here are some interesting stats that might help us understand my reluctance about certain breeds of dogs.
