this is a discussion on Pitbulls, the reason it's in this forum and not another is because of the hatred for them that many share.

dispite popular belief Pitbulls are some of the best natured animals that you can own, they are loyal protective and very tolerant, i have 2 pitbulls and one of them you can just go up to and just squish and pull on her legs etc. and she'll just lay there

Must be because they are popular for dog fights and we seem them often mentioned on the news hurting other animals and even attacking people, so others will believe that they are all dangerous. They aren't, it depends on how you raise them. Any dog can be raised to be aggressive.

I have a Westie that tries to maul me daily! Of course, she fails horrendously (it's quite adorable). It all depends on how the dog is raised

They are not the prettiest, smartest, fastest, or most tolerant breed.

I myself want to get a Border Collie, but they're kind of hyper. I don't know what cross-breed I'd need to have a dog with the same basic coloring and intelligence without the hyperactivity.

Anyway, the overall media image of the pitbull, crossed with the fact it looks like it came out of Dwarves dabbling in genetic mutation, all adds to the fact people don't like pitbulls. I don't mind them, they're funny enough. Cute as puppies, but aren't all dogs?

It's a dog. That's my opinion. It all depends on how you raise them. I don't want one though, I don't like how they look.

There have been several incidents with pitbulls attacking and sometimes killing people (usually children). This is why some think pitbulls are like that by nature. But as the others already said, it only depends on how well the dog has been raised and trained. This is also what experts say.

Since some time it is now obligatory for dog owners in my country to visit a certain number of training courses with their dogs. I think it really makes sense, and will profit both owner and dog even if none of them are aggressive.

And I think you should go extinct as well. Would you mind doing that for us? I would greatly appreciate it, and I think many others will as well.

I have a pure bred and two mixes. Best dogs in the world. Our pure bred is intelligent, beautiful, tolerant (even of other dogs), loves people, obedient, and is probably the most patient dog alive. She'll sit there staring at me for hours while I watch TV or play a game, just waiting to be called up into my lap. Our female mix is a bit guard dog like, but she's never bitten anybody intentionally (though she's the strongest, so when she does bite digits and chunks of flesh tend to fly). She's probably the most loyal dog I've ever had, and is like our mama bear. The male mix is a big white polar bear, mixed with lab and has probably the meanest bark in all creation yet that's about as far as his aggression goes. He's never bitten anybody, intentionally or not, though he does have a high prey drive.

Those are my pits and mixes. :D
