Years ago pit bulls **were** awesome dogs.  Smart, loyal, and fairly gentle.  However, in the late 80's /early 90's they started to get popular.  Some breeders, desperate for more money, started intensive inbreeding programs, all in the name of revenue.  I really don't know if there are any "pure" blood lines left, as is the story with a number of other breeds.  Pitties, among other breeds, seem exceptionally susceptible to producing less-than-desirable traits as a result of inbreeding.  They seem to have a hidden "switch" in their brains that causes a seemingly docile dog to go temporarily feral, then back to docile in a matter of minutes.

Just my $.02, but I've seen the results, and have a nearly universal distrust of pitties now.

Breeds of Dogs Involved in Fatal Human Attacks in the United States Between 1979 and 1998

A 2000 report issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (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%.

No, I've heard that and I don't buy it. I don't think they are any worse (or any better) than any other breed--although inbreeding and puppy mills are no doubt magnifying bad traits. It's just that pit bulls were created for a very special purpose: To fight in (obviously) dog pits. So they were bred hundreds of years ago when the lines first got started from bull terriers and bulldogs for their bite strength, powerful necks and shoulders, what breeders and trainers call "go" or forward drive, and to tend to ignore instinctive surrender signals that other dogs give when they're beaten. Because after all, dog fighters don't want a dog that will show mercy when the beaten dog whines, cowers or rolls over in submission. They want two dogs that will neither surrender nor acknowledge a surrender.

The result is a dog that is no more likely to attack than a Chihuahua; the difference is when it does, it's harder to pull back (because it's much stronger and heavier), does a lot more damage (because it has bigger jaws with more musculature), is undeterred by the other dog's size, and tends to ignore cowering or cringing as a sign of surrender. There's a dumbass woman up the block who has a very ill-mannered Chihuahua mix: It lunges, snaps, barks, does all the things that would make it a killer if it was a pit bull. Since it's a rat dog, she can control it with one hand on the leash, and if it was loose, a five-year old child could kick it across the road. But it's just as mean and aggressive as any killer pit bull.

Ihaveanevilparrot: thorthor: Statistics generally don't lie

Usually don't post in these threads because nothing I say will change the derp....but...LOLWHUT?

Fark has a nearly universal cry of "You can't trust statistics!"

Until they support something you agree with.....

Then they don't lie. :D


Maybe I'm gullible, but I do tend to believe stats from the CDC rather than buzzfeed or the daily fail, which most farkers tend to rely heavily on.

But you are correct in saying that the general attitude is "I don't believe that reputable organization because.. well because.. I just don't believe it."

Same people who are sure Alex Jones and Glen Beck would never lie to further there own agenda.

Not to belabor the point but what motivation exactely would the CDC have in lying about these stats?

Not trying to start a fight, just wondering.

I have owned Labradors my whole life. My dogs without exception have played with children from of all ages, including infants and toddlers. The kids sit on the dogs heads, pull and bite ears, twist nipples, yank on tails. The only response from the dogs I have ever seen is a whimper, and getting up to move away from the child. Even in rough play with older kids biting is essentially "mouthing" the child to say "that's quite enough,thank you. I have never seen broken skin or bruising in any incident. The breed is a huge part of any dog/human interaction. Own pitbulls, akitas, chows, chihuahuas etc... all you like, but for Christs sake, don't let them loose near children or anyone else you don't want to see bitten. I don't care if your little pitty is "such an angel" and wouldn't hurt a fly. Statistics generally don't lie. And dog bites are not only painful, but can emotionally scar people and turn them against our four legged friends for life.
I am not discounting animal abuse and neglect as contributing to this problem, but if it was my kid.. I sure as hell wouldn't take a chance.

another cultural observer: Two 7-pound Chihuahuas would do more damage than those pitties, every single time.  Chihuahua's are more aggressive due to their small stature and can be like piranha.


Said someone who has obviously never actually been bitten by a Chihuahua. My wife's can't even break skin. He has to literally wrestle with his kibble, one piece at a time. Chihuahuas are aggressive because of their small size, but it's 100% bluff. Unless they hook a nostril, they have zero ability to actually cause damage.

Hey, I'm all about executing bad dog owners. fark 'em.

It's cool.  Just wanted to point out that there is a reason why lapdog, however vicious they are, aren't considered dangerous breeds while pits are.

Stupid people consider them a "dangerous breed", sure. Reasonable, relatively intelligent people understand that a poorly trained laptop is certainly more dangerous than a well-trained pitt. I'll expect a response in the form of another very, very clever jpeg.


In that sense of "dangerous", a well-trained 6-year-old with a handgun is less dangerous that a poorly-trained toddler with a wooden block. This is not really a strong argument in favor of open carry for 6-year-olds.

There are plenty of dogs that could attack me all day long without causing me anything more than annoyance. They are less dangerous than any pit bull simply because they're crappy little excuses for dogs. That doesn't mean pit bulls are evil or inherently unstable or should be banned, but it makes sense to recognize that they have greater potential for doing serious harm than most other breeds.

Stupid people? How about people who don't trust them regardless of all of the PSA's done by internet tough guys.

My Beagle won't kill a child if his tail is stepped on and he lashes out. A Pit Bill may very well kill a child and not mean to. But you keep right on defending your loaded-weapon pet, you too can be cool in your trailer park. No amount of nurturing can ever fully prepare you for the unpredictability that is dogs. I personally would rather risk a Beagle bite than a wrongful death lawsuit should my dog attack. Pits may be the nicest dog this side of never, I'll never know, because I will never own one.

My beloved German Shepherd was put down while I was a child because a friend of mine whacked him with a stick accidentally while playing fetch and he scalped her. He'd never been aggressive with anyone up until that point, but all it takes is that one off thing. I hope your insurance is good, because my parents got a $50,000 lawsuit and had to pay medical bills on top of it.

Hardly a puppy. Much is in the up bringing of a dog. That said, any dog can be raised to be aggressive, not all dogs can be controlled 100 percent of the time. Training and discipline are required to minimize this as much as possible.

If a 12-year old is a child, a 7-month dog is a puppy. It has to do with the immaturity of the animal. That said, I'm sure it was not the first time the dogs had been aggressive, and I'm sure all previous incidents had been laughed off because they were "so cyute". Just like when the neighbor's Chihuahua nibbles your ankles.


It's both the immaturity of the animal and the upbringing.  I adopted a 1-yo Great Dane 4 months ago who'd never been trained or socialized.  She's a 120-lb puppy and her training priority was housebreaking, stopping her from jumping on people, and stopping her from biting.  It's been 4 months and the first 2 priorities were taken care of within a month (although she'll still try to jump if she's excited but a firm command will snap her out of it).  But the biting takes more time, again, especially if she's excited.  Because she'a a puppy and she wasn't trained.

But only an asshole would own a large puppy and not train it out of biting people.  We didn't even introduce her to new people for the first 2 months we had her, just to be on the safe side.

My dog was 55 lbs. at 7 months old. Two 7 month old dogs could certainly hurt or kill a 12 year old girl if they're as big as mine was.

I like how the girls escaped by climbing in to a pickup that was in the yard. As if the rest of the story didn't scream redneck central already.
