    I've had it with these lunatic Pit Bull owners who refuse to understand that their dogs are at all times a danger to the public and especially children and the elderly. Their is no safe Pit Bull ever. How many more times will we need to hear of a baby, small child or senior citizen being ripped to shreds by these animals before we realize as a society that they cannot be made safe? I propose we ban all variations of this dog breed and those with a high degree of this breed in them nationwide.

    Don't bother saying I'm wrong because Judge Judy agrees with me.

    OK Pit Bull lovers, let's hear the rationalizations and excuses.

    You do realize it's mostly Pit Bull OWNERS that are the problem, right?

    Everyone wants them because they look like badass dogs, and they have a high "cool" factor.

    Fact is, 9 times out of 10, the people that buy them are NOT the right type of owners for them.

    You need to do your research before buying ANY pet to make sure it's going to be compatible with your household, and your lifestyle.

    So, you ARE wrong.

    I *really* want a spider monkey as a pet.. I don't have one.. Why? Because as much as I want one, I lead the wrong type of life to HAVE one.

    Wow Judge Judy, the ultimate authority! lol
    I am not a pit bull lover, but I am an animal lover and have worked as a volunteer for years at my local animal shelter as well as been a 'foster parent' for animals(dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, mules, ect) for several years. I have taken in a lot of pit bulls. Now I don't live in town, I have a lot of open space. I have had a few dogs that simply did not respond to kind treatment and were aggressive. I would offer the opinion that these animals should not live in town. (period) One pit bull I took in was so aggressive towards my stock, I put him down myself. I found that very sad, as I do love animals.
    I hold the opinion that animals, all animals, respond to the treatment they are given in kind. If they are treated badly, especially when young, they do tend to stay aggressive their entire life. If they are treated kindly, especially when young, they respond in kind for their entire life.
    For that reason, I also hold the opinion that the owners are more to blame for their animals attacking others rather than the animals.

    My brother has a pit bull he has owned for 7 years, also lives in the country where the dog has plenty of room to run. His dog, sara, is very protective of his family, but is the sappiest thing on four feet around his family. I really think how they are raised and treated has more to do with their demeanor than the breed. I took in a border collie that was the most aggressive animal I ever came in contact with. However, within a few months on the ranch, he calmed down and became 'pet' material.
    The thing about pit bulls, and all large breeds, is that they are indeed large enough to kill a human.

    As an aside, my favorite animals are cats and horses. Ok, I am partial to mules too.
    I know from experience that animals respond to the treatment they are subjected to, and will respond in kind. That applies to the wild animals I have taken in as well. I have a permit to take in wild animals form my state fish and game dept in order to bring them back to health. last summer I kept a Mexican Grey Wolf that had been shot for 4 months. When I first got her, she was very aggressive. By the time she left, she was not 'pet' material, but she didn't go berserk when I got near the pen either. While i did treat her with kindness, I did try to spend as little time with her as possible as she was released back into the wild. I did not want her to become to comfortable around people, for her own safety.
    I also have raised a black bear cub that lost a foot in a trap. Same thing, he went to a zoo in Prescott, and even now, at the age of 7 years and fully grown, he loves people. When i go to visit him, he can smell me and loves it when I go into his cage and play with him and pet him.
    I have 6 wild horses I took in. 3 are still very aggressive after over a year, 2 will take food from me after a year, and one I can saddle and ride after 3 years. I never broke a horse in my life, but I have trained hundreds. I repeat, I NEVER broke a horse in my life, but I do have one that was captured 3 years ago as a wild horse and I can ride her.
    I hold the opinion that the owners are responsible for their animals, and are to blame for the treatment that has made them aggressive. i also hold the opinion that there are some animals that should not be kept in heavily populated areas. There are also people that should simply not own animals. I think that a lot of people that are attracted to owning pit bulls fall into the catagory of those that should not own animals at all.

    I couldn't care less what someone's pit bull does to them if they are stupid enough to want one in the first place. I am concerned about children in these households and people living in the neighborhood when they get loose and other animals. It isn't the danger they pose to their retarded owners. They can't be reached anyway.

    So.. you're going to blame the dogs for acting like dogs, rather than the owners for purchasing something they have no business purchasing? How about the breeders that sell them to people they have no business selling them to just to make a buck?

    You're too stupid for air.

    what a silly thread....

    should there be no animals that might possibly, under certain circumstances, maybe sometimes get dangerous?

    i, personally, wouldn't choose to have a pit bull, but that's my preference. I also think it's probably better not to have one if one has children.

    and maybe if you have a pit bull, you have to take some extra precautions when around strangers.

    but no place for pitbulls in a civilized society?

    kinda excessive there, cheesecake.

    and judge j was fine to appear before in family court... and she's a lot of fun to watch, but i'm gonna pass on making her opinion gospel.

    I'm no fanatic of the breed or anything, but 2 of my best friends have had pits as their pet dog for a long time now.

    I've never known any of them to even so much as take a nip at anyone.

    You are a retard. NO dog breed is so bad they can not be normal pets. Pit Bulls are sweet dogs. Loyal and protective. Properly cared for and treated perfectly safe around children and other small things.

    Friend has an 8 month old baby and her pit Bulls love that baby. She plays with them. She breeds pits. Has for over 10 years.
