I bred pit bulls on my farm so I can attest that they're the sweetest, most loving animals in the world. It's people that turn them into monsters. At the height of my kennel days, I had thirty dogs in a three acre enclosure. I never had a problem with them and when I walked amongst them they'd jump and smile. Then I took a much needed two week vacation to Little Rock and everything went to hell. I hired a man off of Craigslist to stop by twice a day to feed the animals. Jerome said that he loved pit bulls and knew how to train them. I was having a great time in Little Rock but I could not get Jerome on the phone after the third day. Worried to death by the fifth day, I took an early flight home and hurried to the house. The dogs were still in the enclosure, but they were completely different animals. It was like they didn't never know me - snapping and snarling and chasing me around the backyard. I ended up having to shoot them all with my sniper rifle. It was so sad but the dogs were lost.

When I went out to clean-up the bodies and the tremendous amount of feces, I figured out the problem. Jerome had been feeding them scraps of clothing. I even found a gold chain and a belt buckle in one of their droppings. You can't feed animals clothing, obviously. I would've sued Jerome for the cost of the animals, but he must have left town because I was never able to contact him again.

TFA says an American Bulldog but the pic looks like a pitbull mix. For the record, there is no such thing as a pitbull--a "pitbull type dog" is a mix of 4 different breeds: American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier, Old English Terrier, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. There is an American Pit Bull Terrier dating back to the 19th century which is a mix of large terrier & bulldog.

But there's one constant with a pitbull mix: They contain a LOT of terrier. If you've ever owned a terrier, you know what kind of temperament they have and training they require. They're not prone to nastiness--they're just strong for their size, many of them are prey-driven, and all are extremely energetic. And, like any dog, if you don't train & socialize them properly, bad things happen. They get bored, go crazy, and become destructive.

Pitbull-types get a bad rap. When I grew up in the 70s, German Shepherds & Rotties were the dogs to avoid. Now those breeds are recognized for the great working/family dogs that they are--as long as they're kept by responsible owners. In the hands of assholes, they turn mean. Now kids of those assholes from the 70s are repeating their parents' mistakes with a new breed. Give it another 10-20 years and another breed will become the new "menace".

This is just such a weird turn of events. Why would a dog spontaneously attack its owner like that? Regardless of breed....
 
2012-07-24 10:20:39 AM
Pit bulls are unpredictable nut jobs and I wouldn't trust one no matter how much the owner tried to convince me how sweet it is and how pit bulls are a maligned breed. Fark that. They're all serial killers deep down. Maybe some people can keep their dogs' nature repressed with good training and vigilant ownership, but pit bulls are still always a dropped pan or a crying child away from going mental and eating a face.


A 2000 report issued by the Center for Disease and Control (CDC) reviewed a 20-year period to determine the types of dog breeds most responsible for U.S. dog bite fatalities.

"During 1997 and 1998, at least 27 people died of dog bite attacks (18 in 1997 and 9 in 1998). At least 25 breeds of dogs were involved in 238 human dog bite related fatalities during the past 20 years. Pit bulls and rottweilers were involved in over half of these fatalities and from 1997 to 1998 were involved in 67%."

RichieLaw: This is just such a weird turn of events. Why would a dog spontaneously attack its owner like that? Regardless of breed....


As always, it depends on how the dog was treated. Owner had a seizure, crazy dog saw weakness & attacked. If it had been a dog that was well-trained and well-socialized, it'd never happen.

Granted, this is all speculation right now. We don't know how the dog was treated. Sometimes you just get a weird dog, regardless of breed. There was a case of a woman being killed by her Great Dane a few years ago. By all accounts, she treated the dog well and nobody knows why it attacked. I own a Great Dane--they're NOT vicious. In fact, they're big, lazy dogs, almost glorified ottomans. But they were originally bred to hunt boar and sometimes, in incredibly rare situations, you get a throw-back.

It's not regardless of breed. It's because of the breed. Fark pit bulls. If she had a Doberman or a German Shepherd she'd still have a face.

If she had a Collie and collapsed while seizing, it would have found the local sheriff and explained that its owner was in a well and she would have died. So fark Collies, too.

Another example of going by raw statistics and reacting to the media. First of all, the study lists "pitbull type" under purebred. Unless you're talking about an American Pit Bull Terrier, you're talking about a mutt. Secondly, it doesn't account for what type of owners the dogs had. Thirdly, by your own link, dog bites from Rotties increased significantly during the last 5 years of the study, outpacing pitbull types. What does that do to your theory about pitbull types being "unpredictable nutjobs"? Hell, as I said before, in the 70s, your German Shepherds would be the dogs we kids would be terrified of because they were the "unpredictable nutjobs". My own brother still has scars from when he was attacked by a GSD while visiting our grandmother. The guy kept the dog chained to a tree every day and lock it in the garage at night. My 5-yo brother wandered into the guy's yard (there was no fence, only a hedge separating the properties) and the dog snapped the chain & attacked. Does that mean GSD's are inherently dangerous? No, it means the owner was an asshole.

Do a little research on what constitutes a pitbull type and then look at the news stories of most of the owners involved in bite attacks. You'll start to see a pattern of abuse or neglect--animals constantly chained outside, not being socialized, accounts of previous incidents that were obviously never addressed, etc.

You hear it time and time again but, if you know dogs as well as you say, you know it's true: It's not the breed, it's the owner.

Before RTFA, I was going to guess that the owner collapsed & died a few days ago and the hungry dog did what a hungry dog would do.

I seem to remember reading a story like that but this isn't the case.

On top of that, because people are afraid of them you have a bunch of reknobs getting them to look "badass." The same idiots won't get their animals fixed, and they end up knocking up the neighbor's dog. Now you have a bunch of puppies that are more or less bred at random, who will go up on a bulletin board for free at the local pet store because Mr. Reknob can't take care of them. Bad breeding sets the stage for a lot of this. Dogs from breeders are bred specifically for temperament. When you start having random uncontrolled breeding you never know what you'll get. Add that in with the sort of person who will get a dog off a bulletin board in a ghetto and it's a recipe for disaster (not saying everyone in a ghetto is a bad owner, I'm just tired of seeing unfixed pits and staffies walking around with a bunch of wannabe thugs with chains/spiked collars around their necks, and seeing bulletin boards full of 100$ "pit bull" puppies).

Attention pit pull apologists:

THERE ARE BAD DOGS AND BAD PEOPLE

Many, many generations of pit bulls have been bred to KILL AND DIE IN FIGHTING PITS. The breed has unfortunately been farked up by losers who want to use the animals for their twisted entertainment. But you can't undo what nature has wrought (with man's guidance) for several more generations.

If you want a badass dog, go get yourself a shepherd or rotttie or dobie. They can make great pets and you won't subject yourself to the unnecessary risks brought about by all selective breeding for aggression and jaw strength in pit bulls.

Nah. These pit bull breeds are just whack jobs just waiting to kill a baby or run down an old lady and tear her arms off. If you own one, I suggest you sleep wearing a hockey helmet. Do you own one? If not I can loan you the one I wore on the bus to school. EIP.

/Rotties are nut jobs, too. But they're predictable nut jobs, so that doesn't count statistically.

I had a dog descended from a wild fox
1st gen fox-german shepherd, slinked around the room and couldn`t be patted
2nd gen 1st gen inbred 1st gen, also a bit wild
3rd gen 2nd gen inbred original german shepherd, my sisters dog, loyal but a bit bitey, very smart
4th gen 3rd gen-(english terrier/bulldog) crazy uncontrollable biatch
5th gen (my dog) 4th gen-working welsh border collie

My dog was crazy smart and very active. Saw itself as part of the human pack not that we were part of the dog pack. Most loyal animal I have ever met and also the most trainable. Would take unwrapped chocolate to a person and drop it in their hand without chewing or licking it. Never needed a lead.

If it got bored it would chew the furniture, doors, crap everywhere and piss on the electric sockets as a dirty protest. It had its idea of right and would object to any actions that it saw as wrong.

I think that was what happened here, the dog saw the person act really weird, got scared and bit.

terriers tend to do that.

For generations and generations the same breeds were used to protect children due to their docility. The difference is how they're bred, and what their lineage is. If you've got a pit that is the result of several hundred years of good breeding, you're going to have a sweet lovable dog with no trace of aggression issues unless severely, severely pressed into attacking.

Then you have kujo who is the result of several hundred years of bull and bear baiting. He's usually ok with his human masters, but he's been bred specifically to attack and kill animals that are larger than him. He is tough, and bred to bite and not stop biting until whatever he is biting is dead. He will attack first. Nowadays his offspring are used underground in fighting rings.

On the other hand you can take that same good dog, then breed it with kujo, and end up with a dog who can seem docile until he snaps one day and eats a face.

Aggression and tameness are directly tied to genetics.

Might have thought it was a game of catch the nose, or something. I'm really not trying to be funny here. Having a shaking seizure, face-to-face with anything terrier related is not a good idea. It's not that the dog doesn't like you or something.. it just kinda get's confused, (and possibly upset), which leads to test nips followed by hard bites if the dog isn't corrected at that point, possibly thinking you've initiated a new game, and they test the boundaries of the new game.
