A short History lesson for you experts out there...

The Bull breeds were originally bred to take down horses and bulls - more specific knights on horses. 1000 years later they were bred to fight other DOGS, NOT HUMAN beings. In America, they were used on farms. In urban areas, many were used to fight other dogs. They were never bred to attack humans.

So why did they name the dog Pit if it was not for fighting in the Pits?

Intelligent responses. I'm impressed.

"Pit" was a later useage, a slang. The AKC doesn't recognize the name "pit bull".

Like a gang member calls a gun a "gat".

Gee, I thought knights on horses, were in fact human beings. I guess I missed something.

We all know they are just fluffy, cuddly pooches who never attack anything for any reason.

We can blame it all one the poodles.

Thanks for the lesson. I'm dim-witted.

There are responsible dog owners and there are not. These dogs are strong.....so you have an abused dog you get an equally abused owner.
Link Posted: 3/19/2006 11:26:51 AM EDT
who cares how they got to become ticking time bombs of rage? fact is, a pit bull is more likely to "go bad" than almost all other breeds. PERIOD.

that doesn't mean that a labrador, shitzu, scottish terrior, or toy poodle won't attack. it just means that the risk factor with an agressive breed is greater. the pit bull is the king of the agressive breeds of dogs.

why are pit bull owners too dim-witted to understand this.

Back this up with statistics.

I bet you can't. The fact is, a pit is no more likely to go back than any other dog. In fact, the smaller breeds are FAR more likely to become aggressive and bite. The difference is that a pit has the size and strength to do some serious damage when it bites.

Pit bull bannings and gun bannings have absolutely nothing in common except for the bannings, right? Oh, and the pussified gay baits that call for the bannings.

Stock answer. It's your family.

There are responsible dog owners and there are not. These dogs are strong.....so you have an abused dog you get an equally abused owner.

So let me get this straight. Out of all the dog breeds, pit bulls are the spawn of Satan himself. Everyone of them born is hell fury unchecked. Every other dog breed is fine, save this one.

Can you people not see how idiotic this is? If the press was to demonize poodles tomorrow and print 2 articles a day how poodles attacked someone, would you call for their termination as well?

i never said that you should not be allowed to own one. i think you should. BUT, if you do, you need to realize that certain care must be taken to protect yourself and others. such as, not letting your pit bull out to run the neighborhood, don't leave your 5yo in the back yard playing with "killer", and make sure you have a reliable means of confienment to keep the dog under your control.

i still don't understand how people could be so stupid to think that their pit bull would never hurt anyone. they are big, strong, and bad-ass. and they know it!!! if you piss it off, it will hurt you!!!

Yes, take down the knight by taking down the horse so that the other side didn't have to, makes sense, huh? Their objective was getting the human off the horse NOT neutralizing the human.
