If they're raised humanely, they are, just like any other dog.

These particular dogs, regardless of their breed, were probably trained to attack and be vicious.

Why not the 'hero' tag? If all you've got is some unchecked but you risk your own life to save someone else and jump in anyway, I'd say that's hero tag worthy. Those dogs are normally gorgeous but the owner needs to be castrated for turning them into aggressive monsters. One of my neighbours recently got a rescue pit, it was being mistreated by previous owners. It's an absolute psychopath now, I can't see it surviving long. The thing got off its lead in the gardens the other day and went after one of my cats. And I don't think I'd have the bravery or courage to step in to try and save my pet if the dog caught her. Seeing one of those creatures when they do get bloodcrazed is terrifying.

Ok, guy, try to follow along here... really concentrate now:

Given the same mistreatment you ascribe as the dog's excuse, to both the monsters in this article, and a hypothetical pair of smaller dogs, the smaller dogs arent ABLE to do the DAMAGE these larger predators can DO. Yes, their treatment affects their demeanor to a degree. But why have two large animals who even have the POTENTIAL to rip a man apart??

Mistreat a pair of poodes, so they attack you? Fine, here's two chances to punt field goals. At least you have the upper hand. With giant monsters, you get this article.

I once saw a poodle, in its full fury, get loose from its leash and charge right at a jogger with headphones, from behind. It came right up and started viciously attacking her ankles. Not having noticed it before, the jogger glanced down at the dog, said "meh", and kept jogging, easily outracing the crazed beast. I think an unprovoked, surprise attack from a pit bull would have a much different reaction.

Ah, the old "a dog is only as good as it's master" despite the breed non-sense.

In some cases a pit bull is going to be a lovely house pet that is unlikely to bite.

In many cases a line of fighting or bate dogs isn't going to have puppies that will make a transition to lovely house pit in one generation.

Go ahead, play russian-roulette with a pit-bull.  Hint: try and get liability insurance that covers your dog; see how it goes when they ask what breed you have.

My CSB,
I was attacked by a pit bull once, but was lucky to not get bit. Had a couple of scratches from the claws. It turned out that the lady I was delivering a pizza to was taking care of it for a friend. All I heard through the screen door was the sound of its toenails before it launched itself at me right through the screen. I used the lady's pizza(still in the bag) to keep shoving its head away until I finally pushed it far enough out of the entryway to let her open the door and drag me inside while her son ran around the side of the house with a muzzle and leash. Tore the pizza bag up pretty good, and the pie of course was ruined, but I was okay. Worst part, she didn't reorder and I didn't get a tip. ;b

Standard poodles start at 15/38 in/cm tall and I've see ones larger. The Bull Terrier is typically between 18 - 22 inches. So a bit bigger but in a specific range. So a standard poodle could do some damage but...
A big difference is that a poodle won't rip your face off for the fun of it.
Bull Terrier type dogs were bred to be nasty. They were used for bull / bear baiting and eventually dog fighting. I'll say these can be good dogs but you really need to know what you own and how to handle it.
 
2014-06-21 09:33:54 AM
The difference between a Jack Russel being aggressive and a pit bull being aggressive dissent mean the owners of either are any better than the other.
Used to live next to some gypsies who had a Chihuahua they were breeding with a Jack Russell. It was a horrible nasty thing, definitely rabid, bashing at the fence and snarling and lunging at anyone that went past. It seems odd that it was acceptable to behave like this but had that been a pit there would have been a swarm of complaints. A vicious Chihuahua is just as bad as a vicious pit bull. But Chihuahuas are somewhat more susceptible to silicone laced sausages.

Pitbulls, when raised humanely, are not like any other dog. Same goes for full wolf breeds, bears raised from cubs, Siberian tigers, etc. Despite what I would hope to be the owner's best intentions (and dare I say the animal's) there is a very real and lethal possibility that something will go very wrong.

A 9-year (1979-88) review of fatal dog attacks in the United States determined that, of the 101 attacks in which breed was recorded, pit bulls were implicated in 42 of those attacks (42%).[24] A 1991 study found that 94% of attacks on children by pit bulls were unprovoked, compared to 43% for other breeds.[25] A 5-year (1989-94) review of fatal dog attacks in the U.S. determined that pit bulls and pit bull mixed breeds were implicated in 24 (29%) of the 84 deaths in which breed was recorded.[26]

There's more...
Anecdotally, I was only ever been attacked by one dog, when I was a pre-teen. I was just riding my bike on a residential street, and it ran over and sank its teeth into my hip, pulling me off my bike. I never even saw it coming, nevermind provoked it. It was a Pit.

i was looking at some pet shelter ads the other day, not for any particular reason, because I don't need a pet. But there were so many pit bulls, pit bull crosses, it was sad. Few of them are ever going to be adopted. We can put down millions of trash pets every year while we're favorited!ing down money to get the perfect, purebred little ball of fur.

If you pay hundreds of dollars to get a purebred dog, you support killing dogs. No way around it. And if you plop down lots of money for a purebred cat---hahahaa. You're an idiot. A cat's a cat, no matter how pretty it looks.
