    Sorry my friend but I disagree, I don’t really think the comment was ignorant considering their historical past. Why is it the majority of articles or news reports about Pit Bulls has to do with hurting or killing something or someone? Why is it, at least in Florida, my homeowner insurance wanted to know if I owned any prior to writing my policy?

    For the same reason the majority of the news reports are about "assault rifles" and Glocks.

    And for the same reason your insurance company wants to know about your guns.

    AKA: SENSATIONALISM!



    You're trolling me, aren't you? You don't really think this way, right? Haha, funny, got me.

    No buddy, I’m not trolling you and I apologize if my sarcastic comment was offensive to you. I also don’t think this one breed has been unfairly picked upon vs all other breeds. I don’t think it’s all about sensationalism either. How come you don’t here the same frequency of these stories about Shepard’s or Dobermans?

    I know your a dog guy and I’m a cat guy but I also love dogs too and most animals in general. But that is one breed that I would never ever trust or own. In my opinion that would be like owning a chimpanzee or a tiger. You may go years and years without ever having a problem but when something in that animal’s brain snaps and it goes berserk, god help the people or other living creatures that are in it’s path.

    Just an fyi, my insurance company has never asked about guns (yet). The only two things they were concerned with was do I own a Pit Bull and or do I have a trampoline. The way our country is going it won’t be long before they do ask about guns.

    My wife was mauled a month ago by a dog she was walking as a volunteer at the animal shelter. It bit all four limbs and she needed emergency surgery to save her arm. She is looking at months of rehab and may never fully recover the use of her strong side arm
    It was a pit bull that had been cleared for adoption.
    Retrievers retrieve, pointers point, shepherds herd. Pit Bulls attack. It is in their DNA.

    I'm not necessarily anti Pitbull, just agreeing with the facts

    I've seen both kinds and my opinion is you cannot really tell unless you have some history or interaction with the dog, maybe know something about how it was raised. I've friends that have Pit Bulls and my cat is more ferocious than they are. Those dogs have just been very well socialized and aren't given to fits of sudden rage. On the other hand, I had a neighbor once in VA that chained his outside all day in the sun. Poor dog had no shade to lay in and half the time his water was gone by afternoon and I'd fill it over the fence with my hose. Spoke to the guy about it and in a couple seconds you realize the dog is way smarter than the owner. That dog, a poodle made the mistake of cutting through the backyard the Pit Bull tore him to pieces. My kids came screaming into the house and I ran out but it was too late..

    So I think some of those dogs truly are dangerous and haven't good enough manners to be left unattended. I believe it's these type of dogs that the apartment complex legal team is concerned about, same for insurance companies. They're branding all dogs with the bad traits of the worst of them but you can hardly blame them since we cannot easily tell them apart without watching them for some time. Their concern is liability and the easy answer is ban them.
