Not sure why are there some people still thinking that some dog breeds are born killers. She's nearly 8 years old now and has done nothing to anyone, hardly even barks. Overly friendly that unlike their teories about my breed being a killer, it would even be nice to a robber. She’s not a natural guard dog.
But just a couple days ago when I was walking her to the park like usual, this couple got leery right after I replied what breed it was. Then I got told ‘’Be careful be that breed’’. I had a couple very rude comments on my facebook such as ‘’Keep that killer away from kids, it needs to be put down’’ or ''Let's see what you have to say when that thing mauls someone else''.
It’s getting ridiculous. Plus, there were times the reporters can’t even get the name of breed right. For instance there were several times, it was really a Mastiff or some other dog that doesn’t even look at all like my breed and yet they keep getting it all wrong.

I've met only good Pit Bulls, which I'm assuming she is, and STILL get told, "well they're aggressive" and can't get told why besides the same old, "Well on the news..." bullshit. I've been bit by dogs however. All of them were smaller breeds or "Americas favorite pet". I've been bit by an aggressive puggle, a horny lab that started humping my leg and bit my arm when I tried getting him off, and a shit zhu (i think thats how its spelled) that bolted out of the house just to bite my friends and I who were walking home! My friend had two Pit Bulls and they were sweet as ever. The only time they got aggressive was when Leah had puppies. But even then, they were still sweethearts. Dino even thought he was a lap dog and would CONSTANTLY try sitting on me. I let him though. He was warm :).
I hate how uneducated people are. You never should blame a dog for how its trained. Also, I've heard people literally say, "if a CHILD is raised in a bad neighborhood, they can be good." as an answer to that. A CHILD. A human child. A child won't answer to bitchface when he/she is older, but a dog will answer to anything. That being said, a dog will do anything its told to do, that includes fighting. Like seriously, why do people think breed bans are the right thing to solve issues like this? You're taking away good dogs from great owners and families to hurt a few assholes who eventually work around the ban and find a NEW breed to use. I honestly want them to use Golden Retrievers or Labs as fighting dogs, lets see how fast the numbers and facts for how useless the law is presents themselves.
I'm sorry for ranting, but this gets me riled up. I love these so-called "aggressive breeds" such as Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, and Dobermans. I like big dogs, I like them a lot. I like the breed too. But apparently they're so aggressive you need to give a copy of your renters insurance to adopt one!
I'm gonna stop now. I'm just gonna go on and on. I'm really sorry for ranting, but I truly do get ticked off by stupid shit like this. I want to be a vet, and if a ban ever comes along that requires me to put down Pit Bulls, fuck that. I'm quitting and protesting that shit.1
