  1. WHAT IS SO WRONG WITH PITBULLS. IF YOU READ UP ON THEM THEY ARE THE BEST FAMILY DOGS ANYONE COULD EVER OWN. ITS A PROVEN FACT. THERE IS NO REASON TO BAN PITBULLS ITS NOT THEIR FAULTS. IT DEPENDS ON HOW THEY ARE RAISED. HAVE A HEART AND CARE FOR THEM THEY ARE JUST LIKE ANY OTHER DOG THEY NEED THE LOVE AND ATTENTION TO. NOT TO BE BANNED EVERY TIME THEY TURN AROUND ITS NOT FAIR TO THEIR KIND. IF PEOPLE WOULD JUST GROW UP AND LEARN THAT PITBULLS ONLY GO BY THE WAY THEY ARE RAISED.. DONT BAN THEM. IF YOU BAN THEM WHY NOT BAN THE REST OF THE OTHER DOGS AS WELL. BECAUSE ITS NOT FAIR. READ ON THEM YOU WILL SEE.

  2. From the UKC….
    “The essential characteristics of the American Pit Bull Terrier are strength, confidence, and zest for life. This breed is eager to please and brimming over with enthusiasm. APBTs make excellent family companions and have always been noted for their love of children. Because most APBTs exhibit some level of dog aggression and because of its powerful physique, the APBT requires an owner who will carefully socialize and obedience train the dog. The breed’s natural agility makes it one of the most capable canine climbers so good fencing is a must for this breed. The APBT is not the best choice for a guard dog since they are extremely friendly, even with strangers. Aggressive behavior toward humans is uncharacteristic of the breed and highly undesirable.”
