I feel the same way about pits and my small dogs. They are notoriously animal aggressive and all it would take is one bite and it would be over for my pups. Why take a chance. I don't care if the dog has never shown any aggression in the past, there is a first time for everything and I don't want my dogs to be involved in the "first time". And this goes for ANY dog large and powerful enough to do my dogs in, not just pits.Rachael Polachek said:I would never allow a pit anywhere near Lily... or me either, for that matter.
yeah i feel bad for them as well, they got such a bad rep. it's a breed i hold close to my heart but sadly i would never own another one. inbreeding has really killed this breed, so has breeding the aggression into them. that said, the rise for popularity has also killed a lot of other breeds as well, dalmations being one of them. pit's aren't the number one biter breeds though, they are far down on the list. you just don't hear about the other dog bites though, only the rotties, pits and breeds like that.tik0z said:i feel really sad for pits...they're so sweet...its just how people raise them...but, i wouldnt let bobo by my bf's pit unless the pit is chained up. i think he's harmless, but, just his size alone near bobo makes me nervous.
