Also, please keep in mind that the "nanny dog" thing is a widely debunked myth. They were NEVER used to nanny children.
The thing with retrievers (that's also a genetic thing) need a lot of exercise because they'll get really agressive. (I just wanted to point that out)Is it scientifically proven that with the actions that humans did to pitbulls (fights) can change them genetically? Since you have a lot of info, do you by any means have the link to where you got it? (for curiosity)
It isn't necessarily the action of dog fighting, but the traits that make them good at it. They were selectively bred for years to make a good fighting dog. I've gotten lots of info over the years from places like dogsbite. org, r/banpitbulls on Reddit (and the sources listed there), etc. I will admit they are biased, but have good points and display a lot of facts and news articles.
The difference between retrievers and pits as well is that generally, it's very rare that a retriever actually mauls someone and refuses to let go. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon with pit attacks.
People need to realise that when it comes to this breed of dogs, facts and statistics >>>feelings and sentiments. The dogs are dangerous, they've killed people in unprovoked attacks in my country.

you shared it? 🤢
I agree with you on that. I've been attacked by a small dog. I didn't realize he did until he bit my ankle from behind and wouldn't let go.
I used to believe that when I was much younger... I was also born in an era when smoking cigarettes was considered classy and cool.
@Dchrls78104 It depends on how the dog, any dog, was trained to be.
They are in UK.
@Jessica405 good, we will need to work on Canada and the US next
