Of course I am not surprised to see the words "Pit Bull" and "attack" in the same headline.

You can tell there's a problem with the breed when "Pit Bull does something good" is the news story. Pit Bull owners are about on par with people claiming that "moderate Islam" exists: every time a Muslim doesn't blow someone up, they try to turn it into a PR event.

That pitbull's intention wasn't to get the guy help; he was simply asking, "Hey, you gonna eat that?"

I know a pitbull that doesn't constantly try to chew on me. Its playfulness is a lot to deal with, but it isn't aggressive. Some pitbulls aren't innately problematic.
 
2013-03-09 02:26:37 PM
Back in the day my roomate gad a pitbull that would, search the whole house when we brought him home from being out and about; he alerted us by barking loudly when there was an ashtray fire or anything out of the ordinary; when we'd get into mischief, like climb on ghe roof to throw water ballons at eachother, he would scold us.  Of course he'd alert anytime someone was coming on the property; we could leave a car running with the windows cracked to run in to a liquor store real quick; anyone who got too close to the car would get violently barked at.  The dog also attacked people or animals who came near any of us if we didn't introduce them.
The crazy dog was both a benefit and a serious farking liability.
The damn dog would jump and push on the fence and gate fiercly lunging at people that walked by, but  never leave the yard. he'd only warn oeople who came to close.  Turns out he could leave whenever he wanted, and did so to run with a pack of neighborhood dogs, at which point he was oddly not hostile at all.

Pit bulls are a serious liability

We have two cats and a dog. One cat likes me best, one cat likes my BF best, the dog shares his affection equally.

Strangely enough, cat A and dog do not seem attuned to my emotional state or health condition at all. It's cat B who gives me the snuggles when I'm really upset. Emo Siamese boy kitty can haz empathy.

Fark pit bulls, I got bit by a pit bull/terrier mix last summer and ended up needing 17 stitches and couldn't swim for a few weeks.
 
2013-03-09 03:07:36 PM
Ok, correction -- I should say I was bit several times by the same dog in the leg. I was on the ground, got as close as I could to the dog, put it in a choke hold and gouged it's eyes with my thumbs and it finally let go and ran off.

CSB:  In November, I rescued a 1-yo Great Dane puppy who had spent her whole life in the owner's backyard.  No training, no socialization, nothing.  Guy would put out some food & water ever morning before he went to work and that's all the attention she ever got.   Attempting to train a rambunctious, puppy-powered, 120-lb dog has been trying, to say the least.  Although he would have done the same thing to rescue any dog in that situation, my husband has occasionally lost his lost his temper at me for bringing the dog home, she's such a goddamn handful.  (In his defense, I travel a LOT for my job, so he's the one stuck home with her 75% of the time).

Anyway, last month, husband turned on the oven to preheat it.  I was upstairs cleaning the back bedroom and he went outside to do some yardwork.  2 minutes later, the dog is running full-tilt around the house, up and down the stairs, barking her fool head off.  She finds me and starts barking, growling, and jumping all over me, nearly knocking me down.  This behavior is off the charts even for her, so I grab her collar to march her downstairs and throw her outside---and the entire ground floor is full of smoke, all billowing from the oven.  I let go of the dog and she gets behind me on the stairs, trying to push me down faster.  I shut the oven off and start for the back door that she's already bolting towards.

Husband had put some leftover pizza (still in the box) in the oven from lunch to keep it out of reach from the dog and forgot about it.  The box had caught fire when the oven got hot enough.   This dog, who had no human interaction for most of her life, somehow understood "Fire bad--let someone know!"  That crazy dog probably saved my life and now my husband and the dog are inseparable.

The couple said that shortly before Bruce's heart attack they had lost both a boxer and a cat from heart failure. Clyde, always close to Martin, seemed especially attentive.

That's great that the dog saved the guy, but seriously, what's going on in that household?

Damnit, I want a dog.  Can't justify keeping one in my apartment where it would be alone 14+ hours a day (I'm single, city apartment, no yard, etc.).

Are there any breeds that do well or ok in that sort of situation? We had small poodles (Not the toys, but not the full, either, 15-20 lbs?) growing up, they were affectionate and stubborn. Always wanted a corgie because they're adorable and smart as hell, but aren't they herding dogs, so need a lot of exercise?  I'm more fond of the medium-small dogs, I guess, for my setting. Though I like pretty much all of 'em.

Well, according to Animal Planet's online dog breed selector, using your criteria (small to medium dog, couch potato, warm weather tolerant, etc...) you could look into Sealyham Terriers, Cardigan Welsh Corgies, Chihuahuas, or Afghan Hounds.

Of that bunch, a Cardie might actually be a good bet. Corgies are herding dogs, but they are not Border Collies, and they can adapt quite well to a domestic lifestyle. My maternal grandmother had two of them (not at the same time), and they were wonderful dogs. On the other hand, her second one didn't get enough exercise. Poor guy was quite obese by the time my grandma had to go to a nursing home. He lost weight after he went to live with my aunt, where he got more exercise, plus a small pack of spayed lady dogs to boss around. But, um, point is, they need exercise. They just might not demand it.

Personally, I'd suggest getting a cat, though. I like both species, but a cat just strikes me as a better apartment pet, especially if you're away a lot. Well, unless you know how to litter train a dog...

Just because the media tells you pit bulls are bad, doesn't make it so. If you concede interspecies differences make all the difference, you are a racist by definition. I have a pit bull, and he is the sweetest dog on the planet. He has never bitten or growled at anyone or anything. Dogs are just like people, there are bad ones and good ones. Anyone who would categorize them so easily is a racist down deep.

This. It is simple cruelty to have a dog that is effectively in solitary confinement for most of its life. If you really liked the dog, as opposed to the idea of having one, you wouldn't do it.

I loathe cats. Strongly.  They're fine outside, and I love all animals. But not only am I freakishly allergic (I get a full-on allergy attack in seconds of being in a cat-apartment and clear seconds after leaving one) but I find them repugnant indoors. I've never met one who was as affectionate as a dog, and they're still cats, which means they're going to eat you if you die, etc.

Did you BOTH miss the part where I said, specifically, 'Can't justify keeping one'?  Because, ya, no shiat, I addressed that. It's why I don't have one, but thanks for making me feel like shiat.

Well, yeah, cats are different than dogs. Unlike dogs, they're not pack animals. On the whole they're not as affectionate as dogs. Plus, they sleep a lot, which probably contributes to their reputation for aloofness. I have met some who have been in-your-face pet me, though. (You definitely would not have appreciated them.) And others who are more classically cat-like, but still love people and laps. I don't know. I've known a lot of cats. They are different in their affections than dogs, but they're not less affectionate. Just less demanding. And somewhat less likely to drool on you. If that makes any sense. Um, in any case, dogs are scavengers, and will also eat your dead body. So there's that.

The allergy thing, though. That is an excellent reason to not have a cat. Yikes.

I wonder how a house bunny would do in your situation...

The general myth is that dogs are so loyal they wouldn't eat you. Just like the story (somewhat true) of the Japanese dog waiting by the train station for his owner every day, even though he was dead, kinda thing.

House bunny: I worked at an animal shelter for a period, there was a bunny in there. It was ok, given that it was in shelter-shock like most of the animals. It didn't bite, or claw, but it wasn't sociable either. And I discovered bunnies do have claws (look, you have to move them from kennel to kennel to clean the things, and most animals don't like being moved).
