i dont want one and not because of the bad rap as i believe the pitbulls that have attacked were raised that way because any dog in all honestly is unpredictable the reason i dont want a pitbull is i dont find them to be attractive dogs they arent the only breed of dog i dont find attractive to me though in all fairness. i am more a cat person but i wouldnt own a persian cat because i dont think their attractive either im really not into cats or dogs with crushed snouts plus many cats/dogs with that kind of charactistic usually has breathing problems.

as a side note i believe that any dog that has been known to have attacked a human should be destroyed because usually once an animal has tasted blood they are more likely to attack again. as a kid my sister who is younger then me was attacked by a dog in which she needed to have plastic surgery done on her ear the attack was unprovoked.

Too much work. Cats are easier to take care of.

HELL NO! I love my children to much!

They are great as guard dogs and to hunt with (I've owned a couple), but they shouldn't be kept inside around families.

In EVERY news story you read about a pitt ripping the face off of a 3 year old the family says the same thing... "It was so kind and good with the kids, we don't know WHAT happened!" What happened was a few thousand years of instinct.

Before you get one for your family, ask yourself, would you bring a tiger or alligator in your house?

Perhaps....just depends on the gender of the Pit Bull and if I could ensure that it would not be hyper-agressive like those you see on the news that ended up mauling kids/people when they got loose.


Those families will tell you, those dogs were't hyper agressive until they attacked, they were part of the family.

Of course not, I've already stated that they make great hunting dogs, or guard dogs, I've owned and trained two they were great dogs I miss them. I also know how agressive and dangerous they can be, we used them to hunt wild boar for gods sake, and personally, I would never have one as a family house pet. That's all. There are other breeds that can be dangerous, German Shepards for example, Chows as well. And honorable mention goes to the mighty Chiuaua, which may just be as aggresive as a pitt even if they don't exactly have ass to back it up.

Really I love Boxers as family dogs, Dobi's are a good low key family/guard dog too. I wanted a Mastiff, but I don't have the room for a small horse. If I didn't have allergies, I'd probably try out a Golden Retriever.

I have known people with good pitts who never had a problem, but I've known people with "good" pitts who have never had a problem... untill they snapped.

Heehee, sounds like that dogs gonna be a handfull... but you never really know when they're still puppies he might turn out to be the best dog you ever have. But with that mix just be very carefull and attentive when children and other small animals are around. The key word being small, as in "prey."

My absoulutist most favoritest dog ever was a Husky, I love the way they talk to you. But, that's also how I found out about my allergies, I just can't have a long haired dog *sigh*

I wanted one that was being put to sleep... He was freakishly huge, he looked to be about 220+ pounds, mostly muscle, and could probably fit my head into his mouth easily. Coolest looking dog I had ever seen.


Sure that wasn't a Bull Mastiff? Pitbulls are medium-sized, smaller than Labradors even but very powerful.

A Bull Mastiff is sort of a giant Pitbull lol, and they are scary.

No, because I don't really like taking care of big dogs and because my insurance company would have a hissy fit. That said, there is no problem with "pit bulls". They're very kind dogs who have suffered a lot at the hand of man. You do have to work with them with early socialization and training as they can be prone to DOG aggression and protectiveness of their people, but so do many other dogs. Shiba Inus are notorious for dog aggression, corgis have issues with human aggression when not properly trained and enriched. It's really not fair.
