If you put a Chihuahua's instinct and aggression into Pit's body you would have a canine WMD  :w00t:

And Chihuahua's always look and are looking very dim-witted. :yes:

It's the breed of of the owner.  I like that.

Exactly, same can be said of hybrid wolf owners, they are very docile if you raise them correctly, if the owner doesn't there will be problems but you can't blame the animal.

The US banned the wolf long ago, because it used to be more detrimental to one's standard of living on the frontier, but at least it's living free again in the US today.  

Unfortunately, many countries have blamed the breed, because they can't tolerate the sometimes fatal bite from a powerful breed.   The Pit Bull is the new living analog of the assault rifle or the 30-round magazine.

I have the most lovable Pitt ever she is a big girl at 45kgs but lives with 5 cats and a small Malshi (Shizu cross malties) she to date has not hurt a soul and I have friends with babies that come over and they play for hours with the dog.

Its the owners that are the issues, + small dogs that nip are worse that a pitt that loves.

Why can't people have cougars as pets?  Or Tigers?  Or hell, bears!  Right there next door to you, a grizzly.

But, it's not the bears fault that it attacked and killed your kid.  It must have been the owner!


There is a definate problem with dangerous breeds of dogs.  I agree, the owners are MOSTLY to blame, but none of that helps bring back a 5 year old kid that was mauled to death.

Maybe the answer isn't to ban the dogs, but to force dog owners to get the dog registered, then depending on the assessed 'risk', have required insurance to cover it.

Reponsible owners would do this, while it may stem the growing tide of 'tough guys' wanting an animal that's not a pet, but an extension of their own aggressive attitudes.  It would cut the demand for these breeds down considerably.
