What is wrong with Pit Bulls.

Let me say that I love Pit Bulls. Mine have all been love warts who want to be in your lap or in the bed with you.

What is a PitBull.

A pitbull can be: An American Bull Dog, American Pit Bull, American Staffordshire Terrier, Boston Bull, English Bull Dog, English Bull Terrier, Minature English Bull Terrier, French Bull Dog, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, or a loose Labrador Retriever called in by a stupid citizen who is mad at his neighbor.

More importantly, what's wrong with PitBulls.

What is wrong with the pitbull is the owner AND the dog. Too many wrong headed people own pitties because they are big intimidating and strong. They present an image to the world of who the owner is. Pitties are sort of like holding a loaded gun. The gun doesn't kill people, people kill people but if the wrong person picks up the gun then someone can die.

The pitbull is a heroic, brave, strong, loving dog who does exactly what his owner wants. If you want them to guard your kids, they are safe. If you want them to guard your valuables (house, car or drugs) they are guarded. But if you want them to kill other animals for sport, money or your fear, then animals will die. Pitties will literally die for you, and kill for you.

They are wonderful marvelous dogs, but to own one you need Experience, Maturity and Wisdom. Training should be required, tests should be given, licenses should be mandatory. Of course, I feel the same way about Rotties, Dobies, GSDs, Malinois and numerous other breeds. Oh, and breeding dogs needs to require all of the above mentioned stipulations also.

But then, I want a 5 year moratorium on breeding all dogs. Our dog cup runneth over and too many good ones going down the drain.
