I’ve been really happy with the amount of positive pit bull story output from Buzzfeed recently. Keep up the good work!
Honestly, you should never just “go up and pet” any dog. Ask if they’re friendly. A small dog is just as liable to bite you and it’s more liable to be fear aggressive.
My pit bull absolutely despises and will run away form his easy walk harness but happily, actively places his head in the prong collar. So explain to me how it’s torture? The only people who are absolutely against prong collars just do not get them. They’re a hundred times better than a flat collar if your dog pulls, which genuinely chokes them and does long term nerve damage to their necks. Here’s a good FAQ about prong collars that explains why they can actually be beneficial to your animal: http://solidk9training.com/2012/06/14/prong-collars-are-lifesaving-and-humane-trainig-tools/
Obviously, people shouldn’t be on public transport with a dog without a leash. Not sure what this has to do with pit bulls? This should be a blanket statement about dogs of all type, particularly large dogs.
Ugh, and the persn who doesn’t understand prong collars award goes to… Please, stop being so negative.
I have never seen a pit bull attack another living creature ever in my entire life, so by your logic I guess they are completely, 100% safe and should be allowed to frolic freely. Also, frankly, I don’t believe you. Whenever there’s some positive pit bull story, you get some joker who’s all like, “I’ve totally seen like a hundred pit bulls viciously maul people that I refuse to identify and also animals that I refuse to identify.” You just come out of the woodwork, you know?
Also, here were the results of that 4-day study, for those who don’t want to go to the link: ” August 18, 2007 — A Labrador mix attacked a 70-year-old man, sending him to the hospital in critical condition. Police officers arrived at the scene and the dog was shot after charging the officers. This incident was reported in one article in the local paper. August 19, 2007 — A 16-month-old child received fatal head and neck injuries after being attacked by a mixed-breed dog.This attack was reported on twice by the local paper. August 20, 2007 — A six-year-old boy was hospitalized after having his ear torn off and receiving a severe bite to the head by a medium-sized, mixed-breed dog. This incident was reported in one article in the local paper. August 21, 2007 — A 59-year-old woman was attacked in her home by two pit bulls and was hospitalized with severe, but not fatal, injuries. This attack was reported in over 230 articles in national and international newspapers, as well as major television news networks including CNN, MSNBC and Fox.”
You are both dumb and wrong. Labs and goldens kill humans, too (keep in mind, death by any dog is virtually a nonexistent problem no matter the breed; you’re more likely to die getting your wisdom teeth taken out, falling asleep in a bathtub, being struck by lightning, being attacked by a hippo, in the midst of auto-erotic asphyxiation, falling out of bed, shopping during black friday, et cetera). The difference is that - and this is a fact - major media outlets just do not care about a dog attack that doesn’t involve a pit bull. “Animal control officers across the country have told the ASPCA that when they alert the media to a dog attack, news outlets respond that they have no interest in reporting on the incident unless it involved a pit bull. A quantitative study by the National Canine Resource Council of dog-bite reportage in a four-day period proves that anti-pit bull bias in the media is more than just a theory — it’s a fact.” From John Davidson at the Denver Post: http://blogs.denverpost.com/fetch/2010/07/18/the-media-takes-its-lumps-over-reporting-about-pit-bulls/
Thank god we have Buzzfeed to tell us these things.
