    Bringing up pitbulls on the internet? May as well cover yourself in gas and light a match.

    Personally as someone with a moderate view, that pit bulls are more dangerous than most breeds but should not be banned, I draw the ire of everyone.

    Well yeah, Pits were bred to be physically formidable, and today they're still used to hunt wildlife and such. They're damned good at it, too.

    But that just means that they're more potentially dangerous if they go rabid or are raised really badly. And they're not any more likely to do so than any other breed.

    From a risk management standpoint if you have probability held constant, but higher impact then you have higher risk.

    I haven't met a pit bull that's even so much as raised an eyebrow at me

    hell, they usually just sit on my foot until I give them the attention they're demanding

    I've seen in a lot of threads people claiming pit bulls are ugly. I really don't understand where this opinion comes from. They are beautiful dogs.

    I used to have the cutest picture of a pit bull pup me and my Dad used to have.

    Her name was Ginger, and she was only maybe six or so months old at the time. She was on my bed, half under my covers with her nose buried in my sheets, looking right at me. It was so damn cute. Unfortunately the disc I stored the picture on stopped working. :(

    I know that a properly raised pitbull can have a good temperament. One of my friends owns one which was badly injured when it was attacked by two other dogs and did not fight back. I'm not sure if it was just unwilling to fight or if it was completely unaware that it could have easily won.

    A properly raised any-dog is going to have a good temperament unless it has brain problems

    I have a labradoodle, currently about twelve years old (so much older than most labradoodles, predating the fad by about four to five years) and she's soooo sweet. She used to be pretty smart, but age has left her with few things besides a very solid daily schedule and recognitions for every euphemism for "take the dog on a walk", such as "take the dog around" or "take Mandy out for a bit".

    The breeder we got her from also had corgis, oddly enough. This has left me with an eternal subconscious desire to know what it would have been like if we got a corgi instead.

    They're a medium size dog instead of large, but look very similar to Shepards and have very similar traits without as many health problems. Very intelligent, very loyal.

    edit: that's odd, it won't recognize Malinois as part of the link so it takes you to a diff wikipedia page

    yeah but sometimes dead animals look really pretty

    like a dead deer just looks so noble and majestic

    I have three cats. One is an awesome kitten who isn't really much of a kitten anymore. The second is a scaredycat. The third is a dirty old bastard with a ton of dependency issues. He sheds everywhere, gropes my mom, shits outside the litterbox, sheds even more, meows nonstop, insists that you pet him at all times, attacks carpet, and did I mention the shedding? Just because of his hair alone, it is impossible to wear black in my house. The other cats shed, but only about a tenth as much as he does.

    My Jack Russel Terrier is such a cunt but I love her.

    She got bitten attacked by a much larger dog when she was less than a year old. Hasn't quite been normal since.
    She always used to get really aggressive and try and scare larger dogs from then on. I think there were like 3 other dogs she didn't want to fight at the dog park.

    Now she is old and arthritic and starts favouring one of her hind legs when it gets cold. This week she hurt her front paw, so at night she is favouring her left hind leg and front right. It looks tragic.

    Having been in a cocker spaniel family my entire life I can assure you that, yes, they are mostly retarded but possess a kind of base cunning in obtaining food. Your food. All of it. Right off the dinner table if it can.

    I fucking hate those dogs

    AIn't nothing wrong with the breed, it's the ignorant hood-rat owners who chain them up and tase them and burn them and starve them until they're aggressive to anyone.

    If you did that to a god-damn labrador then we'd have people spouting off about the horrible killers they are.

    Yup :(

    I love all doggies!

    Saw a super cute one yesterday that had gray spots that were like a dalmatian's, but it looked like a smaller lab (but white with gray spots)

    Once immediately after we had finished eating dinner and there was some food still on the table, but we had all walked into the kitchen momentarily, our cocker spaniel hopped on top of the table, took a shit, and began eating all the leftovers.

    the one thing i'm most worried about my lab is that since he's getting older, he's not as fast as he once was. not by a long shot.

    when we take him down to the ranch, he likes to charge the cows. and if the cows have calves, that makes them charge back. he always runs straight back to us, bringing the pissed off cows with him. so i'm sure one of these days he's gonna get rolled and stomped if he keeps it up.

    I hunted behind a tiny Russel Terrier once and that little guy was amazing. Made me want one of my own really badly.
