You see I have a pit bull dog and he is NOT EVIL!!!One time an american bull dog bit me,so I'm saying its the way you train the dogs.If you treat it nice to the dog ,then you will have a nice dog,but if you treat it mean,then you'll have a mean dog.Also you need to make it use to kids or it will not and I mean not like kids.So i have proofed not all dogs are evil.
No not all dogs are evil . . . Cats however . .
dogs are not evil. no animal is evil. they kill to defend their territory, protect their young, to feed themselves, etc.
only Man kills for greed or lust or pleasure, which makes Man capable of evil.
but not animals.
Dogs are not evil as such, however they are liable to follow their instincts as much as their training. I used to have a very well trained collie (sheep dog) who would follow every command to the letter, however if things got rowdy around him with kids shouting and play fighting with me... he would bite ME!
Dogs cannot be trusted 100%, even my soppy german shepherd I would not trust around strangers.. and as for my Rottweiler, I would never leave her with anyone, even though she was perfect with me and my family..
I agree with the German shepard. I do not allow anyone near him until I have sat him down. He is very protective but far from evil.
I agree with you. Dogs follow their instincts as much as their training. It's their nature to get distracted around a loud environment.
I couldn't agree more. I had two boxers who where the biggest babies in the entire world! Sweet things at home and with family members. If we had other kids over playing in the yard and things got too loud, they would 'protect' the child who they thought was getting hurt. The protecting would be one of them knocking the child to the ground and standing guard over them while the other circled them to keep everyone away.
It happened on two different occasions. Since then, they do not get free reign of the yard when people are over. Dogs are dogs and instincts come out at the strangest times.
My brother owned a pit bull and she was also one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met.
Totally agree that dogs are not evil and will follow their training, but they are still dogs and should never be left alone especially with children.
There are too many horror stories of the mild mannered family pet that turned on a child and left terrible scars.
People get so attached to their animals and never think that they would do such a thing, they can and do.
Or, people get attached to their animals and forget that they are canines and stop treating them as such. Sadly, pretty much every story about a child being mauled could have been prevented if the proper precautions had been taken.
Personally, I have never met an evil dog...I've met many very aggressive dogs, but then I've worked with a LOT of severely abused animals. Of all of the dogs I've worked with, APBTs are some of the biggest babies I've ever been around, they just want to be oversized lap dogs and soak up all the attention. From my own experience, I would feel much better having a pit bull around my kid than a Pomeranian around them, I've been bitten several times by the latter with no provocation whatsoever.
Totally agree w/you. Have owned several APBT's, and yes...they are the biggest babies! Over-sized lap dogs indeed! Also the most loyal and lovable creatures ever! I too was bitten by a dog, not of the "pit" breed, when I was 17 yrs old, on my mouth and required 10 stitches. I had known this dog for all of my teen years. The APBT's I have owned in the past, were also great w/my children, as well as my elderly grandmother. I recently adopted an 8wk old female brindle APBT. She is now 12 wks, and will soon be enrolled in obedience classes. My roomate owns a 7yr old Lab, and a ten yr old sheperd, and they all get along great! There is also a 1yr old border collie who lives next door, and wanders over daily...they are the best of buds! All of them! In my opinion, all puppies start out as these cute, innocent little creatures. It is the irresponsible, idiot people, that ruin this awesome breed > I grew up with toy poodles that were more aggessive! So...Educate, don't discriminate!
Personally I would not trust ANY dog around my children. A well trained dog poses minimal risk I agree (especially if it is a small one) but I still wouldn't leave one alone with my kids.
My son had the wits scared out of him when he was 2 by an Alsatian jumping at him, and is now terrified of all dogs (who can blame him). The owners laughed when it happened.
I think that dog owners underestimate the risk these animals can so easily pose to other people. It only takes one moment of provocation or distraction for even the best trained dog to follow its instincts and attack.
What about that Dog in Wacky Races, he has quite a sinister laugh
i don't think that any dog is evil, it all boils down to how they are treated and what they have been senetized to.. If your dog has been brought up around noisy children it will be fine around noisy children if it has been locked away for a time then it will probably fear most things and that is were you get a dangerous dog. Most dogs that have attacked have been abused or locked away etc they only attack out of fear!!
Dogs are wonderful companions but all dogs need the corect leadership and supervision. I am a proud pit owner and many people hate my dog. he is a big baby. dogs follow their pack leader and that leader should be the human. with the corect training and socilization dogs are great pets. there are no bad dogs, just bad owners!
