The pit bull owner in the video certainly seems like a bad owner. Not...

John D, there you go, you tell that guy. That will scare him away. I'm curious why your mind wentRead More there, something you aren't telling us. Just don't be too rough on him, after all we all know about what you like to do with those dogs. Secret is safe with me brother, don't worry!

No excuses for pit bulls. One attacked the family dog in his own yard while police watched and didRead More nothing. The family dog is dead and nobody cares. A pit bull will never be a sweet loveable dog. Who are you kidding?

If these last comments between Gus's, John Murphy, the animal hospital , and my own can change bossRead More hog from posting all that he does then nothing will besides us to stop enabling hom and giving him the attention he obviously seeks. If our words can't get through at this point and have him at least admit the breed shouldn't be banned then all we can do is stop enabling him and remove him from our blog watch list. Take away his attention an you take away his power.

Gus - Lets Ll remember that dogs are animals and their behavior is not always predictable orRead More logical. I've always been a dog lover but the ridiculously strong & dangerous breeds are not good house pets. good temperaments in dogs. Your stats while interesting don't mention that yorkies, shih Tzu and beagles haven't killed or malled many people. I've had 2 goldens and a small dog that were never aggressive. We should trust government testing methods that assure us kids and the elderly should be safe? I do think certain breeds shouldn't be sold or bred. If I'm wrong then force training and insurance for those dumb enough to want one. If the dog gets lose you pay a massive fine. People should be safe from other people's dogs!

John - You are a hypocrite and a joke.... "I own a scary dog because I am a wimp" blahRead More blah blah.... followed up with "sticking a 44 Ruger Redhawk up a butt". Who is the one hiding behind the scary object you candyass. You people who are on here blithering about a dog breed are clueless, pathetic, and beyond stupid. Worry about the little maggots you all breed and are raising (or supposed to be) and make sure they aren't terrorizing their neighborhoods. I read a story on here daily about some moron who slaps his girl around and where are you people? You are on here whining about dogs.... Focus on raising your kids not to be idiots like yourselves, and we will have a change that really matters. Heather - Don't even bother with these morons.... they are spineless candyasses who are less intelligent than 99% of Pit bulls. The more you respond to them, the more of a voice they have.

Agreed but the problem we are running into here is at the end of the tragedy, you are told the dogRead More belongs to the child (usually a teenager) and the parents refuse to take any responsibility at all. Even to the extent of telling authorities themselves to put the dog down. It's disgusting the measures some take to avoid responsibility and get away with it! You are correct the laws are there for the law abiding citizens, the rest couldn't careless.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 04:57 pm
Doesn't matter, If the teen lives in the home or one the parents property they are responsible.Read More Their home owners insurance company can be sued as well. Putting the dog down does not negate the incident. It is like destroying the knife used to stab somebody. The stabber is still responsible. I am not a lawyer or anything like that but read enough cases and know enough victims as a Retired firefighter to know you can win on these things easily. Might not be able to get money from some of these people but you can get them banned from being able to own an animal again at the least in my opinion.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 05:05 pm
Would point out also that is the reason for getting leash law or town ordinances. They merely stateRead More the rule and have no age limitation. I have seen children walking a 40lb dog as young as 8 to 10. There is no way they could control that dog unless the dog has been very well trained along with the child being trained so the dog will obey it. Problem with society right now is that no one takes self-responsibility for their own action anymore (well any criminal activity or incidents like this). Idiot owners like to blame the dog also to negate their responsibility. Start throwing them in jail with sentences they would give to a person for doing what the dog does and you would have deterent. But there will always be some excuse. It sickens me to no end.

Boss Hog I see you changed your subtitle from "telling the whole story" to "helpingRead More people make decisions". Was that because I pointed out the FACT that you were NOT sharing the "whole story"? Let me point out something else, your NOT helping anyone with you simpleton approach to a Blog. I get it, you don't like certain dogs. It's your choice and your opinion. Your NON blog is just a collection of stories written by someone else and pictures that have nothing to do with the stories you recycle. It it exactly this biased reporting of a collection of horror stories about people being attacked that creates a fear of these dogs. Not all bully breed dogs are evil and bad. I feel bad for the people injured. It's terrible. But you neglect to tell the OTHERSIDE of the bully breeds. I personally know many pitbull type dogs that do good things but unfortunately we live in a drama addicted society so happy stories don't sell. you are in no way helping anyone. Try actually writing more than five bullet points about a terrible story. It would be nice to see some real discussion. It's unfortunate that many people hate these dogs based solely on the news instead of based on personal experience. I used to be that person until I actually met several pitbull dogs.

Hi Maya- I hopped back on this thread for one purpose- you and others on this thread have madeRead More sincere, intelligent comments. But you are ignoring the cardinal rule of the internet: Don't Feed the Trolls. Boss Hogg is a troll. His biased presentation of one sided material, "culled" (pun intended) from a broad, unrelated array of news sources, is classic trolling. Remember: Trolling is not just for the comments! The whole purpose of a blog can be to troll for outrage, and pageviews, as seems to be the case here.
Gary Renfrod April 15, 2014 at 06:33 am
You people all should get a life. By definition none of you who speak out against pit bulls haveRead More any first hand experience with pit bulls let alone owned, or taken care of one. My pit mix is the best, sweetest dog ever. And he was the eighth of seven prior fosters - some good, others great. I know there are bad dogs out there, and pits like any larger dog are powerful. So when they're bad, they're dangerous - but there's nothing unique to the breed that makes them so. By the way, my cocker spaniel/beagle mix is crazy and dangerous.
