I have a pit bull that i have raised from a pup. Very lovable, loyal and great disposition. Recently
The other dogs that were involved were a boxer and a spitz. All of my dogs are big babies which I have had all of them for several years. I am being sued and I need a little insight as to why this has happened.
I recently came across two contradicting statements about pit bulls from the author Richard F. Stratton.
“One theory advanced to account for the breed's unusually stable and congenial-to-people disposition is that he is far too formidable a beast for it to be prudent to allow vicious individuals to survive (and thus to propagate).... This selective process tended to weed out the mean dogs and has left us with a dog with an almost ridiculously amiable disposition.” —RICHARD F. STRATTON (This Is the American Pit Bull Terrier (1976))
Eleven year later: “The mean ones are the aberrations still. But the aberrations are more numerous. “ —RICHARD F. STRATTON (July 8, 1987)
Sports Illustrated printed an article (The Pit Bull Friend And Killer) that maybe of interest to you.

Despite the fact that many people claim that pit-bulls are given a bad reputation and that they are in fact loving dogs, the fact remains that they were bred specifically as fighters and to be aggressive. Just as golden retrievers are genetically very calm dogs, pit-bulls are genetically violent...

Who's the problem? The pit bull or the owner?Should it be illegal to ban all fighting dogs? It's in they're instinct to ravage and Mail anything smaller than them especially if it darts past their line of vision! Would you rather see behavioural therapy? Or training classes more available for both...

I'm beginning my hubzone experience with a controversial topic, the American Pit Bull. I am the reluctant owner of this breed. I say reluctant, because as a child, I had a bad experience with a pit bull in our neighborhood. Dolly attacked my much loved border collie, Freckles, and...
