    Well, I wanted to give my opinion on pita but I lost half my brain cells when I read that no dogs should be in a home with children.

    Lucky I survived my childhood with multiple dogs, often unsupervised, in the house with me. And my children in the same situation...my god, I just got my daughter her own puppy!

    WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!



    And Pits ain’t that bad. I used to think so but over the years I’ve met pits that weren’t chained up beside some white trash house/junk yard, mostly ignored and likely abused. The ones I’ve met raised by a loving owner were just as friendly or more so than other breeds I’ve come across.

    No bad dogs, only bad owners. And most of the time, dogs are a reflection of their owners.

    Just like humans, dogs are a product of their environment.

    I guess you are going to try and convince me a I need a BOS to buy a dog from another person? Or maybe they should check and see if I'm up to date on my rabies shots too!

    Rotor, I'm defensive about all dog breeds, not just pit bulls. I have a wide assortment of dog breeds here at home. One is a pit bull, and a few are pit bull mixes. But I'm sick and tired of dog breeds, and dogs in general getting a bad rap from people that don't have a clue, and too narrow-minded to take the time to learn about dogs.

    Now you want to throw statistics into the discussion? That was tried earlier in the discussion. It failed. Want to talk statistics? How about this one. In 2017, 39,773 people died by guns. Hmmm....Damn, guns are dangerous and we should ban them right? Well without proper context, statistics are meaningless.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_v..., gun deaths reached,109 people dying per day.

    So yes, the greater number of deaths attributed to one dog breed were pit bulls. But without proper context, those numbers mean nothing. Do you have any factual evidence or proof of how those deaths occurred by pit bulls and under what circumstances?

    By no means am I naive about dogs, or that there aren't anomalies, or abnormal cases of "bad" dogs. Just look to Charles Manson, or John Wayne Gacy, or the Son of Sam killer, and I'm sure such cases can occur among dog breeds as well. But I'll stand on my statement, IMO, 99% of "bad" dogs and cases where things went wrong with a pit bull, or any dog breed for that matter, can be traced right back to the owner, or owners of the dog.

    As gun owners you think we would look past a statistic.

    A dog is like clay in your hand. From a pup you mold it. I’m not some self proclaimed expert. I’m just involved with the pets I own. From never having cats that need litter boxes and wait at the door to dogs that know when to behave just by giving them a look.

    I’m gonna probably stir up a storm saying this but I’m telling y’all: if a dog is normal but out of control it’s because there’s no leader of the house/family. This goes back to my comment a dog is like clay. Do not mold it and see what happens. You’re dog will understand being put in his place and kindness/forgiveness. A pack leader is god to a dog.

    I will share my opinion again and even more colorful this time: I see too many scum bags with a popular dog. What do you think will happen to statistics? Let’s have a break down in that data. Percentage of ghetto owners? Percentage of douche flute flat bill ball cap owners? Percentage of they just out of prison and connect with dogs cause they can’t use drugs anymore so they need to feel like an expert in something owners? The no training but “my baby would never do that” owners? Or the classic once your dog discovers he’s got balls you discover you don’t owner?

    Stats are bs.

    Well... this got quite emotional...a thread about dogs....on a Texas gun forum...who’d a thunk it? LOL!

    And despite my words, I was taken way out of context and attributed with a fair amount of misquotes, which is why I kinda regret starting this thread and done posting or reading in it. I’m in no mood these days to argue with emotional issues.

    I’m honestly glad you all love your dogs...it’s way better than the alternative.

    Our dog follows my GF everywhere she goes.
    But, she won't obey her.
    When outside, while my GF is smoking, our dog barks at people walking in the street.
    My GF will yell at her to get her to stop barking, but she won't stop.
    All I have to do is open the back door and look at her.
