Fake John D, please stop harassing the commentors on my blog. I am trying to foster a forum forRead More serious debate.

Did I really read this above about Rottweilers from Sadie Holly, "I personally am more afraidRead More of because they can change because of their skull pressure when they get older". She doesn't sound like a breed basher but I really can't believe an adult would actually say something like that. Gina, I feel your anger what you have here are people that believe the media. If you're ignorant to begin with you'll believe anything the media says. It's people that created bad pit bulls which are only a small fraction of Pits.

Most of the Pit Bulls of today are not bred to be fighters like they used to be. They were createdRead More as dog fighters and criminal protectors. The most aggressive puppies were trained and bred to produce more and more aggressive dogs. However, since dog fighting became illegal, responsible breeders only bred the gentlest puppies, neutering/spaying and extensively training the more aggressive puppies. There are still pit bulls that can be aggressive - most of them only toward other dogs. Owners must be aware of their dog's "tirggers" (other dogs, cats, squirrels, and people's threatening actions or gestures) and keep them under control during these situations. The difference between a pit bull and other dogs is that they are physically more powerful. That doesn't mean that all pit bulls are dangerous. Some just need more extensive training than others. We must all remember that all dogs were bred from wolves - from the largest great danes to the smallest toy breeds. That doesn't mean that they are all pack hunters like their ancestors. By the way, contrary to popular belief, all wolves are not dangerous either. Today's pit bulls are largely bred for sweet temperaments. We need only fear owner's intent, neglect, or inability to control their dog.

That explains why my dog has such bad gas.

The above toxins and bacteria found cause much more grave effects than gas… serious illness,Read More even death… If the gas something that's out of the norm, it's best to make an appt to see the vet… could be parasites, IBD, food allergies, etc. If it's typical, could be a variety of contributing factors such as eating too fast, mouth-breathing, ingredients in food, especially lactose (dairy products) and some given excessive amounts of veggies have bad gas.. and, again, food allergies, GI issues, etc. Any new food should be introduced slowly. Is doggie's poop norm? Belly hard/distended/soft? Eating/activity level norm? Grains and dairy are not easily digested by dogs.. some cannot tolerate it at all and get extremely ill… diarrhea, (sp?) vomiting, (secondary issues as a result of that) allergies, ear infections, gas in many. Too much veggies for some dogs may also cause gas. Foundation to a healthy dog is their food… feed high-quality ingredients... meat protein, not plant-based, low carb, if any (depending on age and activity level) absent of fillers and grains, and he should do really well. "premium" "natural" "well-balance" do NOT mean quality ingredients… need to read the label and know what should be in the food and what should not and choose the food according.

JD You're 100% correct about the person walking the street. It's the owner of the dogsRead More responsibility. The mass breeding of the Pit Bull has also contributed to the problem. A big contributor to this Pit Bull mania was Sports Illustrated. In 1987 they put a pit baring its teeth on the cover with the headline "Beware of this dog". This attracted a lot of types of people that wanted them. Gang members sought the breed in droves. Back yard breeders began over breeding because the demand was so high. Many of these dogs were abused, abandoned and became sought after for the ring. To make them meaner they would pump them with steroids, beat them, chain them with heavy chains around their necks all day to make them stronger and force them with hours of exercise daily. It is human scum that have made Pit Bulls the problem. The monsters are humans not these wonderful animals. Joe R why don't you add the most savage of those animals to your list, humans.

Agreed but the problem we are running into here is at the end of the tragedy, you are told the dogRead More belongs to the child (usually a teenager) and the parents refuse to take any responsibility at all. Even to the extent of telling authorities themselves to put the dog down. It's disgusting the measures some take to avoid responsibility and get away with it! You are correct the laws are there for the law abiding citizens, the rest couldn't careless.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 04:57 pm
Doesn't matter, If the teen lives in the home or one the parents property they are responsible.Read More Their home owners insurance company can be sued as well. Putting the dog down does not negate the incident. It is like destroying the knife used to stab somebody. The stabber is still responsible. I am not a lawyer or anything like that but read enough cases and know enough victims as a Retired firefighter to know you can win on these things easily. Might not be able to get money from some of these people but you can get them banned from being able to own an animal again at the least in my opinion.
Jack Baillargeron April 16, 2014 at 05:05 pm
Would point out also that is the reason for getting leash law or town ordinances. They merely stateRead More the rule and have no age limitation. I have seen children walking a 40lb dog as young as 8 to 10. There is no way they could control that dog unless the dog has been very well trained along with the child being trained so the dog will obey it. Problem with society right now is that no one takes self-responsibility for their own action anymore (well any criminal activity or incidents like this). Idiot owners like to blame the dog also to negate their responsibility. Start throwing them in jail with sentences they would give to a person for doing what the dog does and you would have deterent. But there will always be some excuse. It sickens me to no end.
