Dr. Tuttle: Deftoons: Dr. Tuttle: Valid point, Quirk, but would you agree that with the thousands of irresponsible backyard breeders and the sub-par owners looking for that pit bull mystique, perhaps the standard of the breed and its expected behavior has been greatly tainted ?

Nowhere near enough to define the breed overall.  Even the dogs that were  trained to attack can be just the same be trained not to attack and become lovable creatures that we know most dogs to be -see this example regarding the rescued dogs from Michael Vick's doggie death camp. These dogs were horribly abused, but are now in fantastic shape and are well-behaved family dogs.

During that whole era where pit bulls were trained to be fighting dogs, they were also being trained to be Nanny Dogs watching over the kids in families that had over a dozen children (which was typical during that time) while the parents were away working or doing house chores.

Cutesy dog and child photos like that are incredibly irresponsible. That seems like a ticking time bomb situation. The "Nanny Dog" myth has already been dispelled in this thread.

It has neither been established as a myth nor "dispelled."  Commenter cited ONE source which contained obvious slanting if not outright bias.  You accepted it as congruent with your preconceived beliefs and conflated it to the status of an established fact.

Dr. Tuttle:  Please send a link to a time appropriate document that refers to the dog as such.

"Was there a huge child holocaust from Pit Bulls that happened during that time to which the majority of the public wasn't aware of?  Or were all those documented pictures just a large manufactured lie?"

There probably were bites. Reports probably weren't filed. Reports may have been lost in the last 100 years.

I see.  So first, you DEMAND EVIDENCE from the other side of the argument. Then, you excuse the LACK OF EVIDENCE on your side of the argument  Damned convenient.
