JesseL: GoldSpider: tiamet4: All terriers, most hunting breeds and several of the working breeds were bred to "fight to the death".  Your point is?

That only one of those breeds has a documented history of actually doing it to people.

tiamet4: a pit bull can kill you but so can a lab, german shepherd, Doberman, or mastiff.... horses, cows, and particularly angry pigs

Hmmm, one of these things is not quite like the rest.  See above for a hint!

Wait, are you saying that the only thing there in the list (pit bull, lab, german shepherd, Doberman, mastiff, horses, cows, and pigs) with a documented history of killing people is the pit bull?


Apparently pigs kill a lot of people.

Tricky Chicken: Dragonflew: Tricky Chicken: It is all bred into the breeds.  If you have a border collie (extremely smart and trainable dogs) and you also have very small children, you are quite likely to wind up with a bitten child if you aren't careful.  The border collie tries to herd the children instinctively.  Children are dumb snd don't know that the doggie is trying to keep them in a safe area.  First the dog barks and the kid runs the wrong way.  Then the dog nips at the lower legs like it would a sheep.  Now you have a bad doggie for just doing what it was bred to do. But the kid just gets nipped in the leg.

I knew someone who killed her border collie puppy because of this behaviour. It didn't even nip at their child, it nipped at someone jogging by. She did not even consider giving her away, she immediately had her killed. Or in her words (which infuriated me even more), "helped her to sleep".

This woman is a sociopathic slimeball monster who later abandoned her own child.

Some people should just not own dogs.

Border collies are infuriatingly smart.  You really have to know what you are doing to train them.  They can learn to do different things from the same command based upon inflection.

Slippers! - dog gets slippers
Slippers? - dog lies down

If I trained the dog to heel with the command heel, but accidentally had my left hand on my hip each time I did it, the dog might not know what I was talking about if I said 'heel' without my hand on hip.  Or, It might decide that hand on hip means heel too.

They are often trained to react to whistle commands to herd sheep from a distance.  I cannot whistle the same tone twice if I had to.

The woman you knew should never have been allowed to have children.


Luckily it worked out well, and the dad got full custody.  The kid is intelligent, well-rounded, polite, confident, and all the other things he would not have been if his mother was in the picture.

She had her dog killed (I refuse to say she "helped her to sleep", that phrase is punch-worthy) ten years ago, and I still miss that little thing.  The dog didn't even have a problem with nipping, it was a one-time event, but she killed the dog regardless.

Regarding the interpretation of commands, I was reading an interesting article recently that said (I paraphrase): So, you have just spent an hour in the living room teaching your dog to sit. Congratulations. Your dog now knows how to sit in the living room.

I've got a Border Collie-German Shepherd mix that I've never had to put much training into at all. I tell him what to do, he takes his best guess at what I mean, I correct him if necessary, and now he knows. Forever.

Easier to work with than most children.

You're right. Pit Bulls are uncontrollable killers that can SNAP at any second for no reason. They can't help it, it's in their blood.

Just like black people.

false equivalency is false.


Yeah, according to the FBI, African Americans commit way more murders than pit bulls

That's true, but you also have to start with your dog learning to sit somewhere.

My preference is to teach them slower. Do 10 or 15 minutes at a time in a few different places. That way when they finally learn it, they know it better. And you can teach them a few tricks at a time then. Also I have a short attention span.

I have yet to hear a logically sound, convincing argument showing that the benefits of owning such dogs outweigh the risks.

On the one hand, you have the usual benefits of dog ownership (which just about any other breed can offer).
On the other hand, you have mauled and dead children, lawsuits, huge fines, and possible jail time.

Headso: kapaso: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Headso: racist red neck conservatives and gun grabby statists can come together on this issue to outlaw a dog they don't like, so that's nice.

You gotta admit it's highly amusing seeing people get so easily manipulated by the media...

Yes it's the media that has influenced me, not my lying eyes.

outlawing pitbulls is like outlawing a certain brand of gun though. You could probably put some stats together that show that most crimes are committed with a specific handgun. so let's ban just this handgun?


A specific type of gun that, if left uncared for for a while, will decide to try to escape from your gunsafe and eat a child. Yes. Or that might randomly decide to fire while you're taking it for a walk in the park.

Dog breed DNA tests are notorious for being completely bonkers. Dog breed genetics are a mess. Breed gene pools are refreshed by bringing in other similar breeds and filtering out the offspring that don't look like the standard.
 
2014-07-21 07:41:04 PM  
Late & tangential...
Every breed to its purpose, I suppose.
Remember an article, from the Regional section of the NYT, in the late `80's, describing the `warrant police' and how they'd outfit themselves if they knew Pits (or other biters) were on the premise of the offender.  Tranq. guns, leather leg gauntlets and nets.  If the article was accurate, the offenders often outfitted their Pits with leather vests that would cause the tranq darts to glance off.

All I could think of, after reading the article was that Spain Rodriguez should had this material to work from back when he was drawing for Zap comics.

Chows, in packs, are very intelligent and aggressive (to a point - they knew who would shoot at them).  When the County finally paved our road in `00, the `pack' disappeared pretty quickly (not so smart that they avoided becoming road kill).

My Akita reversed the hold, put the pitbull down and had him by the throat when I got there. I grabbed the pitbull by the collar and launched him like a discus about 30 feet. The owner biatched until everyone at the dog park told her to get her stupid dog out of the park. VERY satisfying!
/screw pitbulls

3/10

So now a true story is trolling? Whatever doom guy.

I thought you were trolling since you mentioned an Akita, which are way more aggressive than pits


I don't know where you get off presuming a dog is aggressive because of its breed. I've been reliably informed by numerous farkers in this thread that the breed is completely irrelevant to a dog's aggression and the only possible reason a dog might ever show unwanted aggression is because it's owner trained it that way.

It may be the owner's fault but there sure seems to be a pattern going on.

Chummer45: [guns/pit bulls] aren't inherently bad
It's irresponsible owners of [guns/pit bulls] that are the problem
So quit talking about how [guns/pit bulls] are dangerous because, even though they do kill a hell of a lot of people, it's really their irresponsible owner's fault at the end of the day.
Sorry about your dead loved one - my "right" to own unregulated [pit bulls / gun] ownership trumps public safety.


Except that dogs have their own volition - guns don't. If a dog decides to kill, it can do so (or attempt to do so) on its own. A gun will never decide to kill - it takes a person to the pull the trigger.

Pit bulls are bred to kill other dogs.  They are selected from source stocks speciffically for this purpose.  They must attack quickly before the other doggie gets the upper hand.  Now when a kid about the same size as a bigger doggie moves in a way the doggie doesn't expect, instinct kicks in and now you have a bad doggie doing what it was bred to do.  But this time the kid's neck is ripped out.


My brother has a border collie and it's been around since both of his kids were born. Border collies might be the smartest dogs alive. His dog nipped once at my niece when she was a baby. Marvin the border collie got a talking to and then he never did it again. He also doesn't beg, because they trained that right out of him. Instead he steals. Everything. They had to put an extra clasp on their refrigerator because once he learned how to open it, there was no going back.

He has, unfortunately, retained all of the information he learned about opening gates, doors, digging out fence posts, and barking at anything, anytime, and anywhere. Sometimes he'll find something outside and want to show it to you, and if you don't immediately drop what you are doing he'll huff and stare at you like you're a goddamned idiot, which to him we probably are.

Here's one for you... This guy I knew used to always take his pitbull with him in his old 70's customized van whenever he would go fishing.  He'd always stop at McDonald's and get his dog a happy meal.  The dog LOVED happy meals but he usually tore the toys to shreds LOL.  Anyway, this one day it was really rainy but my friend decided to go fishing anyway. It was thundering something fierce and it was one of those days that looked like nighttime in the middle of the day.  You could smell a faint hint of ozone from the lightning strikes.  If you've never gone fishing in the rain I highly recommend it.  Something about the raindrops hitting the water brings out the lunkers.  Like they think it's bugs landing on the water or something. My buddy and his dog were cruising along like they always did, the dog's window rolled down so he could stick his snout out the window, rain coming in the window, Led Zeppelin IVcranked up on the stereo.

They had both just finished their lunch from McDonalds and were almost to the creek when a mother squirrel and her brood of baby squirrels made an attempt to cross the slick road in front of the van.  My friend instinctively hit the brakes and wrenched the steering wheel to avoid splattering the little squirrel family all over hell and creation.  When he did, he just narrowly avoided the squirrels but his van went into a sideways slide.  The wheels hit a dry spot of road that had been shielded from the rain by a big elm tree, grabbed hold of the asphalt, and highsided the van.  The van rolled once down the wet grassy embankment on the side of the road and came to an abrupt stop.  The pitbull was flung free of the van through the half open window but Paul was still inside.  He was knocked out cold but still held in place by his seatbelt.  The pit loyally stayed by his master's side until a passing driver stopped when he saw the van pitched in the ditch.  The driver approached the van but my friend's dog made no aggressive moves toward the driver.  He seemed to sense this guy was here to help.

When the EMT/Fire Rescue showed up they had to use the Jaws Of Life to pry the driver's side door open.  When they got the door open and stuck their heads inside to check on my friend, Stairway to Heaven was still playing on the stereo!  Oh, and when the passerby stopped?  The dog chased down and ate those farking squirrels.

LOL.  Probably so, we are all idiots to those dogs of higher intelligence.  Having been owned by 2 Lab/Border Collie mixes, one of which learned how to open the gate and took him and his lil sis on walks in the neighborhood, I can relate, oh so much-they went out for treats and pets and the neighbors would always escort them home like it was no big deal (yup, neighbors loved my dogs and gave them treats/pets and threw tennis balls for them in their own back yards while I was at work), it took I don't know how many self walks without the peoples, before any of my neighbors even bothered to call me and it's because a new neighbor hadn't been visited by them before and had a very young child who didn't know them (kid was fine, mommy dearest was panicked of my oh so scary, baby eating dogs).  It's just hard to deal with intelligent dogs especially if they're good at problem solving or puzzles (gates, fridges, etc)  Very good to hear he no longer bites, though :)

And all the statistics on dog bites are compiled from... media reports.

walkerhound: I May Be Crazy But...:It just looks like a lab to me. The fur would most likely be shorter if it was part pit bull, and the head would be heavier. And labs normally have that square muzzle.

Neither labs nor golden's have pink, nude mucosal surfaces like the dog in the photo, unlike light colored pit bulls.  And coat length means fark-all when we're talking about a cross-breed.

/we could argue about this ad nauseum, the point is shelters love to call a pit bull mix a "Lab mix."


Actually, a friend has a "Labradoodle" that wound up with a pink nose. Sometimes mixes turn out funny.

JesseL: GoldSpider: JesseL: Wait, are you saying that the only thing there in the list (pit bull, lab, german shepherd, Doberman, mastiff, horses, cows, and pigs) with a documented history of killing people is the pit bull?

Let me guess, your definition of "documented history" holds both isolated incidents and thousands of documented attacks in equal regard.

Are you really that ignorant? Horses and cows alone account for for

more deaths in the US every year than all dogs.

FTFM

Loadmaster: I have yet to hear a logically sound, convincing argument showing that the benefits of owning such dogs outweigh the risks.

On the one hand, you have the usual benefits of dog ownership (which just about any other breed can offer).
On the other hand, you have mauled and dead children, lawsuits, huge fines, and possible jail time.


Not saying they're compensating for something but they're compensating for something...

Though I'd hate to see what some people are compensating for by owning a pack of chihuahuas. because with one, you might as well not own any.  There isn't any compensation
