(Des Moines Register)   Police detain man's pit bull because a woman alleged the dog bit her. And after almost a year, the man is still fighting to get his dog back; "I'm an only child. I don't have children of my own. That dog is like my kid. She never bit anyone"   (desmoinesregister.com) divider line 74

"Better"? What does that mean...they used to be called the Nanny dog for a reason. The reason all this happened is attitudes like yours! If the lady was in fact bit, hospital records should back up the story. If it wasn't bad enough to seek medical attention, slap a band aid on it and STFU!
 
2013-11-17 07:25:02 PM
So if I read this right, the man's dog was taken with zero proof she did anything but get loose, an officer threatened him into giving the dog up because the officer couldn't wait three hours for a warrant, the town council violated all their own rules, but can supposedly be rid of a dog that's "capable of causing damage."

That's cool. I'll see all your nasty little ankle biters shot in the square then. Get a real dog. Coincidentally pit bulls count as real dogs, and are almost always Good Dogs (except when they have bad owners).

Yep, especially *IF* this bit is true...

FTA: Tinnes then threatened to shoot Little Girl in front of Hicks if "he had to wait three (expletive) hours for a search warrant."

Give him the money.

United States v. Harrison (2011), essentially states that if a suspect consents to a search under an implication or threat of physical danger, that counts as involuntary consent. I would argue that this includes physical danger to the suspect's family and/or associates.

And that case wasn't even about direct physical violence, that was about ATF agents who told a suspect there might be a bomb in his house. In THIS case, the officer directly threatened to shoot the guy's dog if he didn't consent to a search. That's just not appropriate behaviour.

By "better" I assume you mean a breed you don't irrationally hate?

Dogs are dogs; no breed is any better or worse than any other, and their behavior is almost entirely down to their owner and their training.  I've never been afraid of a pit bull, but I've seen plenty of pit bull owners I'd keep my distance from.

Hahaha!! No, not put to sleep, although I have met some I wouldn't mind doing that to! I have two of them (one deer-head and one apple-head) and a German shepherd, the secret to a well behaved dog is to make them all behave as if they were big dogs. If the shepherd can't get away with it, neither can the little ones! I don't let the shepherd be a yappy ankle biter, so neither do they!

If I can give my totally unsolicited advice (I work at a vets office btw) play with it's feet daily!!

Actually, Pits are much 'better' at maiming and killing humans than any other dog breed, and while owner behavior can certainly be a factor, so can letting your little monster escape and run around in the neighborhood.

Pit Bulls are the Monster-Truck-with-Large-Truck-Nuts of the dog world. Their owners buy them for their reputation, and they all swear that it's just how they're raised and not some innate breeding which is just silly.

Dogs are bred to achieve certain goals or ideals. Rat Terriers are amazing at catching and killing rats. Pointers are great at hunting, Labs are good at retrieving. Huskies can pull a sled all day in subzero temps. Little tea-cup dogs are great at fitting into handbags, and Pit Bulls (the name should give you some farking idea of their purpose) are bred to get into a ring with another dog and fight to the death.

When other dog breeds make a "mistake" and bite somebody, then it's usually just a nip, or at most a stitch or two, but if a Pit Bull makes a "mistake", then it's death. That's just too much of a gamble for you to be able to drive your monster truck around.

Um, dogs can be detained when they are accused of crimes? I don't think so. Dogs are property, I don't follow how the police can take your property? I mean, if you are accused of a crime the police can't take your GUNS. Why, exactly can they take your dog.

I love all dogs, no breed is bad- they are all made bad by human hands.

- Accustom your puppy to having it's feet and head handled, this makes it easier for the vet during exams.

- Establish a regimen around feeding times.  Ask the pup to sit (once he learns that trick) before you put the food down, or at least have him calmly wait before you put it down.  This helps prevent food aggression.

- Expose your pup to friendly, non-intimidating strangers (i.e. your friends that know what they are doing with dogs), and reinforce with treats and praise.  This helps prevent aggression towards strangers.

Thanks for the advice. We do a lot of those things already including taking him out for playtime at the local dog park and getting him to clam down in the middle of funtime. Feeding times are always the same, and there is no food aggression anywhere.

Pup is always out socializing with strangers. Since we got our pitbull from a rescue, we go to a bunch of pitbull events. Little guy gets more attention and gets fondled more than you would believe.

The thing we are down to is house training. 90% of the time he is fine. That last 10% is is him almost doing it on purpose.

"Pit bull" is not a dog breed. It is a generic term encompassing several different breeds. Many of these breeds were bred for hunting, not fighting. So really all you're showing here is you have no clue what you're talking about.

I've known quite a few pit bulls, and lived with one for almost a year while staying with a friend. The one I lived with was one of the most cowardly dogs I've ever known(the door bell ringing scared the shiat out of her, for example), but was never even remotely aggressive towards anyone, even strangers.

Awww, all that sounds awesome!! And as far as "accidents" go...if he's old enuf, snip him! We didn't get the boy chi neutered young enuf (my ex couldn't bring himself to do it) and he marked EVERYTHING, even the ex, lol!!

Yeah as a condition of buying him we have to get him snipped. We havent made the appointment yet but it is right around the corner.

This isn't marking his turf. I really believe right now that it is something else. We are trying to find the pattern but so far it is totally random. Well all except the spot. That is always the same place. fortunately he doesnt much care what is in that spot, so puppy pads have done wonders on the damage....

We'll figure it out sooner or later...

spidermilk: I mean, if you are accused of a crime the police can't take your GUNS.


They can, and will with certain accusations such as domestic violence. No matter how ridiculous the claims are, if someone files for a restraining order against you you've got 48 hours to sell your guns to a licensed gun broker, or turn them into the police. This is before the hearing for the restraining order, with just the accusation you lose your right to have firearms and purchase ammunition.

I had this happen to me, and despite the entire thing being thrown out by the judge as being ridiculous, it took me almost a year and around $100 in fees to the state to get everything in order enough to have my guns released back to me.

I'm sorry that I didn't take the time to list out all the individual breeds (American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Bulldog) that qualify as a Pit Bull. You'll notice I did the same grouping with 'Pointers'.

You sound like a Pit Bull Apologist. Perhaps you should read up on the subject and not base your entire opinion on meeting a handful of Pit Bulls over the course of your life?

 2012 fatal dog attacks by breed:
www.dogsbite.org

"In the 8-year period from 2005 to 2012, pit bulls killed 151 Americans and accounted for 60% of the total recorded deaths (251). Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers accounted for 73% of these deaths."

I know you'll just probably blow this off, because LOL Pit Bulls aren't dangerous, but this helpful website (www.dogsbite.org) has compiled all the 2012 victim information for you. Clearly these old ladies and children did something to the Pit Bulls to deserve their death sentence, but you know.. take a look because it never hurts to educate yourself on a subject.

FnkyTwn: grumpfuff: "Pit bull" is not a dog breed. It is a generic term encompassing several different breeds. Many of these breeds were bred for hunting, not fighting. So really all you're showing here is you have no clue what you're talking about.

Please explain to me on how, for over a hundred years, pit bulls were considered one of the most loyal, family friendly dogs, if indeed they are so inherently vicious.

Also take care to explain how many of the pit bulls in those attacks were raised by competent owners.

Also also, hey look, I can counter your random website with another one I pulled up with 30 seconds of googling "dogsbite source check"

Notice one of the common things that is mentioned is that people often can't tell the difference between a "pit bull" and other, non-"pit bull" breeds with similar features.

Piizzadude: haolegirl: Piizzadude: noitsnot: haolegirl: Piizzadude: haolegirl: Hahaha!! No, not put to sleep, although I have met some I wouldn't min.

Yeah as a condition of buying him we have to get him snipped. We havent made the appointment yet but it is right around the corner.

This isn't marking his turf. I really believe right now that it is something else. We are trying to find the pattern but so far it is totally random. Well all except the spot. That is always the same place. fortunately he doesnt much care what is in that spot, so puppy pads have done wonders on the damage....

We'll figure it out sooner or later...


Oh...a challenge ;-) is it behind something like a chair (I had a dog who did this for a while)?
