I love pitbulls but sadly they are banned in the UK and BSL is making lives of anyone who owns a dog that is the same size as a pit a complete misery. Dogs are taken based on their looks and measurements and are confined to sparse kennels until their court date (which could take weeks) and the outcome of court could go two ways. The dog is released back to its owner but has to be neutered, tattoo's and muzzled at all times, the alternative is that the dog is put to sleep. Most of these dogs have done nothing wrong except look 'pit type'. I have owned Staffordshire Bull Terriers for 20 years and cannot fault them, they have been great with all people and children and of the 4 I have owned one hated other dogs.
Any dog can be aggressive - deed not breed!

It's too sad...I guess I'm lucky here in California, we have a law that states no breed spacific laws are allowed. I'd hate for my beautiful, loveable pit to be put down just because he's a pit!

Aww poor babies :( I understand if the dog shows aggressive signs, but REALLY? That is just ridiculous. In the place that I live in Florida, there are no laws on the crap. The only good thing about them making people neuter their dogs is that there will be less back yard bred pit bulls, then the people producing TRUE APBTs or Staffs can do what they do.

To many page to read through.....
Stop at page 2
But to be honest which dog u rather get bit by
A pit or other
If I've was going to choose it would be neither but I rather get bitten by any other dog then a pit
Do to the jaw strength n locking down the jaw with a head shake
Bottom line it depend on the owner
My little sister mutt bully my brother pit when they are eating
The mutt is 1/3 the size of the pit

look at us, see how we get anger issues. it is because our parents or whomever in our family has anger issues.
same goes for dogs. their genetics work the same as ours do.
I've disagree
Bring me a wean 6 week old pup from a blood lust parent(fighting pit)
It will grow up to be a gentel pet

Very rarely DOG aggression (NOT human aggression) can be found genetically. BUT if you work with that dog from a very very young age, it is still possible to almost train it out of him.

Pits like so many dog breeds only want to please their owners, so if that owner wants their pit to fight or be aggressive, it will be. If the owner however wants a wonderful pet, that too can happen.

I assume you haven't spent as much time as I have studying genetics.
If you read my previous posts, I also stated that while most behavior is genetic it CAN be curbed/trained. Just like your chances for heart problems can be reduced by having a healthy lifestyle.

Study can beat hand on
I raise many pit over the lifetime
Never have a problem with wean pup
If u introduce them to a mellow old dog u should be fine
The problem people have problem with pit
Is that they only hear the broken down,strave n cage dog
That train to kill n eject with hormo
If u do that to any dog it will fight
Only reason people choose pit to fit
It there jaw strength
In the wrong hand any dog try to kill
