    I get where this is supposed to be funny but me and my bully will just go stand over here and be sad that once again pit bull stereotypes are being spread, leaving many with the misrepresentation that they are evil, violent dogs. If people would do a little research on the breed instead of just listening to the news, which by the way often calls a dog a pit bull whether it is or not, they would find the stereotype to be false.

    It’s hard not to listen to the news when there are so many reports of attacks and pets killed by pits and rots. Each time, the owner shaking their head confusedly and saying: “I just don’t understand it. Fluffy has always been such a sweet poopsie woopsie.”

    Meanwhile, all the other owners get angry and hold hands and sing “We shall overcome”.

    Oh, the persecution! The humanity!

    Seriously, I get that some people feel it’s important to rescue dogs. But when is somebody going to rescue me from their owners?

    I just made my own version of this sign for my apartment building. I own a pit bull/lab mix and have never met a more lovable dog. I don’t got to off leash dog parks, but it doesn’t make sense to my why people think that EVERYWHERE is an off leash dog park. Put your animals on a leash!

    Agreed that it’s the dumb owners that basically are the root of the problem.

    We need to stop putting Human Emotions into our dogs, and start treating them like dogs. This would greatly curb any sort of dog bite headlines that get so much attention from the media.

    I do also have to say, that Pit Bulls get so much media attention because they are the “aggressive dog of the moment”. To their disadvantage they are a hugely popular breed with people wanting a “bad looking dog” as a status symbol, and do you think they are responsible pet owners? probably not.

    Yes there are bad Pit Bulls, but there are good ones too. Spreading the horrific images and other Pit Bull stereotypes or supporting a Breed Ban because YOU had a bad experience or are prejudiced is exactly like if you got mugged by a black man, and then went around saying all black people are criminals… Wouldn’t go over too well, would it? (oh yes, I just went there)

    That being said, I do believe that ANY dog that is human aggressive should be put down. Whether that’s a Chihuahua, Great Dane, or a Pit Bull. Keeping a human aggressive dog around is just an accident waiting to happen because even though your dog may love the shit out of you, you cannot guarantee that you will always be there or that you will not make a mistake and let something happen.
