public domain/They claim pit bulls were called 'The Nanny Dog'
Winston Smith July 25, 2014 at 11:18 am
American Pit Bull Terriers are not know as the nanny dog. Staffordshire Bull Terriers are know asRead More the nanny dog. The dog in this attack is a mutt. What you dont understand about "pit bull defenders" is that we have never ever had a bad experience with our dogs. There are millions of APBT's out there and the overwhelming majority just do what every other dog does. There are 6 pit bulls on my block here in Lacey, all rescues and no problems. To say this dog was raised by a good owner is complete speculation. Another thing, why do you always accompany an attack story with pics of dogs who are obviously wonderful companions?

I'm all for banning pit bulls as long as there is also a ban on idiots like youRead More procreating...Seriously...you people are morons!
Jack July 25, 2014 at 09:01 am
@JD Banning procreation from these morons is a good compromise, JD. But there are not many of theseRead More idiots to worry about. There is really only one or two psychopaths posting here with their multiple IDs. And as far as procreating goes, trust me, these trolls are far too ugly and repulsive, and genetically are the end of their line. For the male trolls, the last time they saw female genitalia was the day they were born! And the females? Even a crazed rabid bloodhound would not go near these skanks!

Mad as hell... July 21, 2014 at 07:45 am
Any dog can go crazy wanting to attack another dog but as I've recounted here many times when aRead More pitbull attacked me and my leashed dog Max. Max was no small dog...over 100 lbs at the time...and was ready to rumble with this little bitch pitbull but I saw the futility in it. Without going too much into detail let's just say the little bitch died from it's injuries a few months later while suffering the whole time getting there. Her owner was a dirt bag who didn't take it to the vet after I cracked and broke several of the little bitch's ribs when I launched it through the air with a swift but solid shin bone kick to the ribs. I can still see it in my mind's eye how it flew through the air a good 15' before landing on the road and spinning on it's side into the ditch.

They have the instinct they are born with to attack. It's in their blood. How many more peopleRead More need to get hurt or die because all these supposed pit owners were not raising them well? Don't matter the INSTINCT to kill is in their blood, no matter who raises it. Pure luck goes along with owning one.

Leave the pit bulls alone. What a hateful person. You might as well be writing about the blacks, orRead More the Jews, or whatever, but this is supposed to be OK because they are dogs and can't defend themselves? Shame on Patch for allowing this crap to pass as a 'blog'.
Susan Costello July 21, 2014 at 11:35 am
Oh pulleese, the point is that just humans stereotype Jews or blacks or Asians or Hispanics orRead More whatever, this blog writer is stereotyping. Yes, there are aggressive pit bulls just as there are aggressive Maltese and Goldendoodles. It's the owners who make the dogs bad and then when are made bad, they have the ability to cause damage because of their strength, size and jaws. I can't quite figure out what the agenda of this blog writer is .... maybe he has a dog fighting business and he figures if everyone hates all pitbulls, then he will be allowed to do his dirty business. Anyway it is appalling and offensive.

I know people that have adopted pitbulls that were being neglected and have nothing but admirationRead More for them doing that and saving the dog from suffering But i have no idea why anyone would seek out that breed or (even worse breed them). There are all kinds of other loving dog breeds out there that could never bring that potential for injury or even death to other dogs or children. Every dog can somehow snap and bite but when was the last time you read about a st Bernard or lab in one of these stories

A pit bull saving a child is nice. But it's irrelevant. Nobody's saying that every pit bull onRead More earth has human flesh stuck in its teeth. What sane people are thinking and saying, after 40 years of playing guinea pig for the pit bull owners who want to own a powerful, violent breed as if it was a gentle, kind one, is that there are hundreds of dog breeds and types whose track record for killing humans is zero. So why keep rolling the dice? There is nothing special about pit bulls except for their violence. You want a chunky dog with a big head and not much brains, you can get a lab. Is one breed really worth all the pain? Look, dogs saving people! With zero cost, since the breeds featured have figured in virtually zero dog attacks. http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/local-news/dog-saves-mans-life-keeping-7443781 A little terrier and a Rhodesian Ridgeback keep a man alive after he suffers a freak accident. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/lifestyle/pet-dog-saves-boy-from/1199812.html A Shiba Inu chases a bear out of its owner's house, saving their little boy. http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2014/03/05/german-shepherd-credited-with-saving-elderly-novato-man-after-carbon-monoxide-poisoning/ A German Shepherd saves its owner from carbon monoxide! http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/dog-saves-cancer-stricken-owner-devastating-fire-article-1.1607754 A German Shepherd saves her owner from a fire! ... and on and on and on.

its not the whole breed, all dogs bite and maul, you just hear about pit bulls more. I have beenRead More around dogs most of my adult life. the pits that i have come into contact with were never raised or bread to be mean or aggressive.
