The proper terminology is "Assault Dog."

I love dogs.  I have 2 labs.   My sis-in-law had a very nice pit (sorry, American Staffordshire Terrier).

Frankly, we shouldn't breed pit bulls.  I'm not suggesting euthanasia or confiscation, but IMHO, there's no good reason to continue to breed pits.  They have good qualities, but nothing that can't be found in other dogs.  Their potential risks are greater than other, equally fine dogs.  They're ridiculously strong, especially their bite strength, and can do a lot of damage in the wrong hands or wrong situation.

It just saved them so it could kill them at a time of its own choosing.  Dogs have plans!!

TFA "Firefighters believe the fire started in the home's dryer and quickly spread."

Seriously folks: clean that shiat out.  And not just the lint trap. Clean the vent; move the drier -- even crack open the drier shell every few years.
You'd be amazed/disgusted at the lint/dust build-up.

And maybe your damn house won't burn to the ground.

/ and while we're talking lint traps, you should wash those once in a while
// drier sheets can leave a waxy build-up on the screen. it might look clean but still be clogged to shiat. drop some water on the screen. see if it actually passes through.
/// "the more you know" and all that.

Nope, not true.  Same bite strength as dogs of the same size.

This dog looks like a smaller version of my Lab/pit mix. Same exact coloring.

Wonderful dog, first one I've ever had. Loyalty of a lab and the playfulness and cuddliness of a Pit.

The reason Pit Bulls get a bad reputation is because of bad owners who don't train them.

..Which they do because their owners either don't train them at all, or DO train them to be more aggressive.

That dog looks almost exactly the same as my old Staffie.  Main difference being a white patch on the back of my old dogs neck that looked like a star.

Pitt Bulls are actually a better breed of dog for families, they have a natural matronly attribute to them that gives them more patience for kids and families.  It's a shame that they have such a terrible reputation because of bad human owners and what they are taught as they are growing up.  Pitt Bulls sound a lot like cops, where a good chunk of them have are given a bad reputation due to a small percentage giving them a bad name.

My dog adores me. But he would just as soon chew up anyone who comes near me. But he's fairly reticent if he's out on the town. Alert me when you have stories about pit bulls taking it upon themselves to save random strangers.
 
2013-02-14 12:24:20 PM  
Pit bulls are much like their owners: you may find a few decent ones, but, overall, they tend to reflect more greatly their owner's asshole-ishness.

Dogs that if left untrained are a natural danger to others SHOULD be restricted and heavily insured to protect from the law-abiding public.  Sorry, a untrained chihuahua isn't going to be gnawing little Jimmy's face off because he walked into the wrong yard.

That's how kids are supposed to look around babysitters. And who wouldn't like to keep his babysitter chained?

I'm all for requiring a license to have a pit, much like a gun* or a car.  HOPEFULLY would mean fewer farktards get their hands on those dogs.  The dogs don't deserve being in that kind of situation.
