Man I was getting a tour of a vet clinic where I'll be working over the summer, there was a GSD there kenneled and he gave me the creeps, they do that weird thing with their hind legs posed low to the ground. I know kenneled dogs often get like that though, I'm sure he's fine.
No vet here will treat a pit for anything, not even shots anymore.

It's a bad myth that has been busted. I can link you to a few things.

http://voices.yahoo.com/pitbull-myth...ed-488660.html
http://pitbullfaq.com/basicinfo/do-p...r/mediaqa.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pit_bull
http://www.dogwatch.net/myths/lock_jaw.html

The myth was born because the breed is very tenacious. They don't lock their jaws. Put very simply: They do not let go because they do not want to.

Forget pit bulls, you do NOT want to be bit by a terrier.
Anyways if a dog does bite you, shove your arm or whatever towards it, makes em wanna let go. Alternatively if you're calm enough and have a free hand, grab some skin around it's mouth and push it on the dogs teeth, instant release (doubt that one gets used a lot :p).

I've been bit bit several dachshunds. Pit bulls may hold on and be stronger, but little weenie dogs will rip and shred at you. Ironically, dachshunds are the only dogs that have ever bitten me. They do freak me out.

Lock jaw or lock
Two different thing
I've been around dog
Dog with stronger bite tend to hold on longer n shake more

Size of the head or length of the nose have to do with anything
If that true English bulldog will have the strongest bite
Bullmastiff should have the strongest
Since they where bred to bring down bull aka bull baiting

I'm nice...
I don't bite...
Unless u ask me to.....
