I will say it's best to fix these dogs early before the hormones kick in, 6 to 8 months.. I rescued these two. I don't regret getting them. They're big babies. Surprisingly smart dogs in my experience..

In the 80's it was Doberman pinchers
In the 90's it was rottweilers
In the 00's and now it is the Pit bull.

It's the owners fault in every case, not the dog..
I was wondering about getting them fixed & if that should be mandated depending on where you live or something.

I know someone who previously had a pit bull. She was the sweetest dog even after having her ears cut off and being tortured. I believe the owner dictates how a dog will behave in the future. Luckily she was saved and given a decent home where she lived for many years and never hurt anyone.

Thats not true. It was bred for 100s of years to be a farm dog, working in barns to get rid of mice. They have been around since the revolutionary war

You want to go ahead and ban Great Danes because they are big?

It has nothing to do with the dog and everything to do with the person raising it. I think people who raise them to be vicious should get castrated right after their dogs are.

I never read an article where a Great Dane attacked anyone. I see where pits do it everyday. I don't know much about dog fighting other than it involves mostly put bulls & there has to be a reason for it. I agree people are largely to blame but not solely.

We have a Pekingese mix from the shelter , I had to warn the vet he bites
She said "of course he does he's a Pekingese"

I had to laugh
We got this dog because of the kids and two weeks later the dog got sick and he was so protective of his crate we were barely allowed to take him to the vet

I suddenly had a lot of sympathy for those who have big dogs that bite
I couldn't bring myself to take him back to the shelter..but after he drew blood a few times I considered myself an idiot but now we know how to read the little punk

That's why I said hurt, I was speaking more to my experience with a single dog more than the breed. The dog I was referring to could do some major damage if he was raised differently. He got in a fight with some coyotes and killed two of them. He got out of it with a few scars on his face. He was probably the scariest lookin dog I've seen in up close but the worst he'd do is slobber on you.

I agree about the dogs personality. Another friend of mine has a pit and I can't stand it. I don't feel like its dangerous, its just annoying.

Because nobody wants to read an article that says... "Great Dane bites Grandma".

I have been around several Pits and all of them have been big babies that just want attention. Other people have said it before in this thread. It's all in how they are raised. Granted Pits are very strong dogs, they can be taught/trained how to act.
