Because to many aggressive people want them, and then don't train them. For some reason they've become a 'tough guy image' accessory. I personally would only have one if we had an acre of land. They're very sweet dogs but a very high energy. But most of the them are super sweet and only need their energy drained, which I think causes people to mistake them being aggressive. Because they're so enthusiastic about everything.
Honestly my Lhasa Apso is more of a 'bad dog' then most pitts or bad rep dogs are. But all people want to do with Momo is cuddle him or pet him. Which if he doesn't like you and you come at him he'll tell you he'll rip your face off if you don't back off. Then do it if you don't get the hint.
