It's true some pitbulls are trained to fight, but it's not the breed themselves, it's the people who train them that make or brake the dog. But since many people who are uneducated about the breed and here on the news that "pitbulls attacked person." or something of there abouts they think the whole breed is bad. Since I saw that my city does not have a pitbulls ban or anything, I hope to own one once I can provide the time and space for the dog :)
I have another thing to add to that, my sister owns one and hers we believe was Abused, but she is the most loveable dog ever, since she may have been abused, she wants to stay close to us (such a lapdog)

my pit bull is sweet as hell. she loves tiny dogs (big ones too, but mostly tiny) an is very friendly. I have a chihuahua on my street that is more vicious than her.

I honestly love pittys, however how the dog reacts depends on how it is brought up. Pits are strong, big dogs (most of the time) that definitely need to be controlled and put in their place at a young age. If you let a pit (or any dog) be excited, nippy, and aggressive as a pup, it might be cute at the time, but that dog will grow to be very strong and it wont be as cute when they're nippy at a young child or dog. This has to do with any dog, but it's important with the Pit because of the breed. A mother would rather put down a pit instead of a small dog for biting their child, no matter which one is worse. I think it's the harsh reality that the owners have to face and deal with. I have a lot of respect for people who know how to control their dog.

I LOVE the dogs, I have a friend who is very strict with her pit (she has to be, that dog is huge and very strong) I love the look of the dogs and I would rescue/adopt one in a heartbeat if it was friendly with kids and cats.

Pit bulls can be so sweet. It kinda hurts me when people give them a bad reputation because most of them are really nice. I have a pit bull named Lily and she is anything but mean. I take her to dog shows and she is really obedient and has won a few times. She is also deaf so when other dogs try to fight/assert dominance she gets really scared because she can't hear them. She just sits on her tail and tries to hide. She's probably the least aggressive dog I've ever met. She's never even growled and I've had her for 3 years. I used to kinda judge pit bulls but if you get to know one they can be really sweet.

My sister had an ex who owned two pit bulls. One of them was white and deaf, and was super sweet and cuddly. The other one was a pit bull/lab and wasn't so sweet. He had to disown her because she was so hyper. I think she attacked someone's dog.

The thing that people don't understand is that every dog has a breed temperament. Pit bulls were bred to fight, but not against people. They're naturally aggressive, but not in the way like it sounds. Every dog has a different personality.

I would definitely own one if I could. There's a ton of pits stuck in the shelter, but a lot of them do come from difficult backgrounds. One time my mom met a pit bull in one of the local shelters and it was being all happy and friendly until her boyfriend came close. Any type of dog can become human aggressive if they're treated badly.

I'm glad people in this thread aren't throwing around the "nanny dog" thing.

personally, i love pitbulls. they're very kind dogs who have a good heart. i was bit by a pitbull a few years ago, but the dogs circumstances were awful and he was being left alone for hours a day, had no proper training at all, and was rarely shown attention.
they ended up putting him and his brother down due to them attacking a dog. though, i still love pits and have dismissed that one time. where i live, the whole shelter is just pit bulls. that's all. every single row of dogs is pitbulls. it's actually really sad. after we lost our old dog, we were going to adopt a pitbull, but some things came up and we didn't make it back to the shelter to get her.
i'm leaving home in about a year though, so i'd like to get a pit and a rotty. i'm such a sucker for them. i don't think they're a bad breed, it all depends on the person owning them.

Pitbulls, Pitbulls! I use to be a pitbull owner, had two of them but sadly had to get rid of them because of family things. But my pitbulls were the sweetest things, NO LIE! BUT, when it comes to protecting they are there to protect and ready to attack. Also my pitbulls names were biggie and isis/icey, God forbid I miss them. ;-;

I really don't hate any dog breed in general, and pitbulls are no different! My family once rescued a pitbull off the side of the road, and she's one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met! She lives in a home with kids now, and they always say that she's so well behaved and sweet!
So personally, I don't ever blame the dog. I think it all depends on the owner. Pitbulls are always said to be a vicious breed, but to be honest, I don't find that fair- they definitely deserve love as well!

I asked Jesus, "How much do you love me?" Jesus replied, "This much." He stretched his arms on the arms on the cross and died. ✞
