As I'm looking at the size of his head and jaw structure I understood why some people might be afraid. My dog was raised around small kids from a pup. The dog was treated like one of the kids. No jealousy, not a growl, nothing, ever. I believe a dog is a representation of his environment. When he's part of a pack family and is well socialized and well treated he is no threat..

    Being 'made of money' and getting the animal correct training are exclusive of each other. Dog training is not as expensive as having an unruly dog that doesn't listen to commands and gets you into a liability law suit over a dog bite or real dog attack. Then you DO need to be made of money.

    JMO but I'd rather pay the trainer than a lawyer. No offense to the lawyers in our midst.
    Did I ever say my dog was disobedient? And we are not talking about my dog.

    Do you always repeat what someone says to you back to them? You sound like a five year old saying "nuh uh, you are"
    How do you show documents that PROVE your dog isnt bred for viciousness? Is this an era where you can go to a vet and say "Hey, my pitbull needs proof he/she isnt bred for viciousness can you print me something?" Sounds a bit far fetched to me. You sound a bit naive to think papers like this exist. You sound like Fienstein when it comes to animals. Pitbulls have been demonized into the same field Demtards demonize "Assault type weapons. I suggest you spend a little time with pitbulls and research both sides of the table before calling them vicious.

    Prove it? I'm not sure how one proves a negative.

    Regarding thoughts on tying-up your dogs, when one lives in the country and has ample room there's no need to tie the dog. No one where I live does. The dog goes in and out at will but after dinner or dark is not allowed outside alone. There's always a concern about coyotes and black bears. I grow berries so the bears are always a possibility.

    To sum it up...

    Someone else here asked these exact same questions. And so I searched. Police, military, search/rescue, and therapy use American Stafford Shire Terriers. So ask yourself, if they do use them, why do you dislike them? The statistics you posted, did you get those from the CDC report? The report that used news reports, which are biased against pit bulls, in its research? The report that said it was inaccurate because they had to use the main stream media? The report that referenced the Pickney and Kennedy dog bite study, that had German Shepards and Huskies above the ABPT/AST. The report that has a "Pit Bull type" as well as "Pit Bull" becuase they can't garuantee the exact breed of each instance. The report that said, " Although fatal attacks on humans appear to be a breed-specific problem (pit bull-type dogs and Rottweilers), other breeds may bite and cause fatalities at higher rates. Because of difficulties inherent in determining a dog’s breed with certainty, enforcement of breed-specific ordinances raises constitutional and practical issues. Fatal attacks represent a small proportion of dog bite injuries to humans and, therefore, should not be the primary factor driving public policy concerning dangerous dogs."

    What were these animals born to do? Have you done any research on the origins of a ABPT/AST? Here's a quick recap. Bull dogs bred for bull baiting. Bull baiting becomes illegal. Bull dogs bred with terriers. Bull terriers used for fighting (which was illegal, and as another poster stated, weren't bred if they had a tendency to attack humans). Brought over to the States where they were used for herding, gaurding, hunting, and family pets. Did you know the APBT/AST has one of the highest passing rates for the American Temperment Test? With a 85.3% passing rate, Pitbulls make better family pets than Golden Retrievers and Collies.

    A little research would help. Start here Pitbulls or here http://www.dontbullymybreed.org/]Don't Bull my breed.[/URL]
    Had to go find these past threads and posts. Hope you enjoy the reading.

    There was a time when people thought the GSD was bad... and the Rottweiler... and the Doberman. Police mostly stopped using Rottie's as the bite was bad and they were too big to search effectively in some areas. Eventually even the GSD was replaced by the Belgian Malinois in some areas. My GSD was a handful. K9 trained but NEVER to be left alone where the public or kids were concerned. Drop of a hat that dog would rock-n-roll. It lived to bite thus I had to be very careful. I always thought the dog was a little nuts. Once jumped in the open back window of a car-load of Jehovah's Witnesses after them. They ran around the car like a Chinese fire-drill. Called the dog back before anyone was bit. I BEGGED them not to keep coming. But, you know how much effect that had. I guess I needed saving badly. Perhaps they could convert the dog.

    On my way back to Delaware from Florida, we stopped at a convenient store in SC. A car pulled in about four spaces over, none between. A pit jumped out the rear window and headed straight for me at a full trot. Before I could react, it stopped about two feet away, tail wagging. I reached down, palm up, and he put his muzzle in my hand, slobber and all. I petted him, and the owner came over. "Never did that before," he said. We talked, and he assured me that his mutt had never been aggressive, but never came to a stranger like that. He admitted he was worried, then relieved. We chatted, went our separate ways and I thanked God I had no time to react there. I thought back a few years to another time when a pit came at me at full trot, snarling all the way crossing the road at an angle. Suddenly a passing car shot by and "bang," the pit was dead. Two different days, different dogs, and both times I was blessed. So goes life. I am not afraid of dogs, have always had good incidents with dogs who were supposed to be bad. Maybe some day it will be different, maybe not. Being vigilant is a necessity. But animals can smell fear, even through bluff. I guess it pays not to be afraid, or even too dumb to be afraid.

    Were you attacked or charged? There is a point when the animal is charging that you have to take defensive action. How close was it when it stopped?
