    Re: Pit Bulls

    Have you ever noticed how many dungheaded punks have one or more on leashes thinking they've discovered the optimal unconcealed weapon.

    My husky hates pitts too, the neighbors is almost always penned in the yard . got out one day and saw lady on a leash and charged her full speed. Lady whipped her handily, threw her up in the air like a possom and the pit ran for home kyi ing.

    Re: Pit Bulls

    There isn't any bad dogs...just bad dog owners.
    You never heard of pitbull attacks til someone figured out what powerful dogs they were and how dangerous they could make them.

    Doberman's could be a vicious dog and were for some years. They were the mean dog of choice for a while..and wiener dogs...mean little buggards, trained to go into tunnels for badgers.

    People dont seem to understand working dogs and their needs. Wonder why their boarder collie insists on chasing cars and their jack russles are spastic....

    I had a mutt that would shred a cat if it wasnt controlled....and I did control it.

    People need to research dog breeds and get what suits the dog...not them. You just can't keep something like a pitbull somewhere that it cant work off some of it's energy, same with many other breeds.

    I'm no PETA member or animal rights activist of any kind. I've worked with the AKC, trained several dogs and learned to respect the breed for what they are.....hunters, workers, retrievers, hearders, etc.

    I'd have no qualms putting down a dog that was trained to fight and let run loose to hurt someone....but I think it's ultimately the owner that should shoulder the responsibility.

    I think...therefore I am.

    Re: Pit Bulls

    UPDATE!!!

    By mid afternoon yesterday he was ready to play. Picked up a ball an brought it to me and of course I obliged him. Other than a bad hair cut and the puncture wounds he is fine. I wonder how he will react when I get him out on the leash in a few minutes.

    As far as I know the PB's up to date with shots. The owner's daughter provided papers from a vet and the responding officer checked them as well as the tags. I am healing nicely.

    The local dog enforcement officer visited yesterday and took a statement. I asked and he told me that this was the second attack on another dog by this PB. As far as the law is concerned the most I might be able to get done is ask the local district justice to declare the dog dangerous. All that means is if they take the dog in public it must be under the control of an adult and have a muzzle on. If it is outside at the owner's house it must be in a kennel.

    As far as getting the dog put down, it would be up to the owner. As many have said, the owner needs to be responsible. Knowing that she has two children in the house (one 5 and the other a toddler) with a dog that she knows was trained to fight, I highly doubt she would even consider it.

    Also, I had mentioned not having my Leatherman with me on Thursday night. When I told the dog officer that I would have at minimum stabbed the dog he informed me that I have the right to protect myself, family and dog from any other animal. It is on my belt now. And yes, I can take it out of the pouch and open the blade to a locked position in about 1.5 seconds. Hopefully I will never have to use it for protection.

    I'll be back in an hour or so if all goes well.

    Re: Pit Bulls, Updated

    Back from our walk.

    When I got his leash out he did his normal sit with a vigorously wagging tail. Had a great hour long walk. No problems with barking dogs and he wanted to greet everyone. Only issue was a banner flapping in the wind.

    I guess the only thing left is getting the owner to pay the vet bill, ensure she is cited for the PB not being under control and trying to get the dog legally labled as dangerous. Once all that happens I'll update again.

    Thanks to all for the concern and replies. I will never again be out with my dog without some type of protection. Just like the Boy Scouts, ya gotta be prepared

    Re: Pit Bulls, Updated

    I remember the now called pit bulls when I was younger & they seemed to be friendly. Today they are a status symbol for
    those in the inner cities who are intent on making them mean. Plus the puppy mills are pumping out dogs of questionable
    bloodlines (if any) & breeding any dogs including brothers & sisters to make money off of the pups. There can be a huge
    difference in the dogs temperment when compared to a properly bred dog. And they do consider them weapons. The police
    in this area usually just shoot them if they think they may be a problem. Glad you're all OK.

    Re: Pit Bulls, Updated

    When I first posted this topic my wife was still at the vet. She left before I got back because it took some time for the local PD to show up. Anyhow, I incorrectly stated that the PB locked onto my dog's ear. I was mainly the area behind the ear on the neck. I wonder if him being a puppy with loose skin helped to avoid more damage. When I stuck my fingers back behind the PB's back teeth there was no room to try to get it to release. Who knows, I'm just real happy that he is back having fun being a puppy who thinks he is a lap dog.

    Re: Pit Bulls, Updated

    I have heard this time and time again about this kind of behavior, I volunteer at out local shelter and they do not put pit bulls up for adopting for any reason if owner does not come to get it with in a weeks time it is put down no if's and's on buts. I own very calm breed dogs predictable inteligent dogs I know there are exceptions to this w/pit bulls more common not .
    jusy my 2 cents
