    I own two Pit Bulls. Very affectionate and gentle, unless I coax them into to playing rough. Then do, bigly.

    My dogs know who's boss and respect me completely but I think it is irresponsible to allow them out unleashed. Blame the owner.

    Who cares if the gun shot pit was expected to survive, it and the other two should be put down.
    I have a pit-boxer mix she is a sweet heart, but if she did this, she would be put down.

    The owner of the pit bulls should be shot for being a moron.

    I didn't have to teach my bird dog to point, or my cattle dog to heel our stock. What is it that pits were bred for?

    It's always the owners fault when their pets misbehave, but nature will usually take its course given a chance. I really wouldn't take a pet alligator to the municipal swimming pool, and I wouldn't let a pit run loose around strange people or animals.

    I personally feel that any dog is capable of being good or bad, its all in how its raised,

    However in my apartment complex, the 3 super aggresive dogs are 2 pitbulls that live together, these cant play with any other dogs what so ever, they charge and growl on their leashes, have to have spiked choke collars and chains as leashes,

    The other aggresive dog is some abused / neglected shepherd dog that never gets socialized,

    The dog that has actually bit someone is a pit mix, also very aggresive towards other dogs,

    A dog that my shepherd mix has gotten into little skiffs with is a pit mix, okay behavior, but not great, very dominant though and the owners dont really care..

    If you have no experience, how does your gut tell you that?

    Pit bulls are just dogs, unfortunately they are strong tough dogs with a reputation, which means they are often owned by dumbasses who try to make them into anything from fighting dogs to homemade attack dogs, "because dey pitbulls, dawg."

    Pitbulls are like minivans, they are good, practical and would be great to own, but they have a reputation because they attract a really bad class of owner.

    A perfect example of the ignorance you speak of.

    The dog in my avatar picture is a full blooded pitbull and is one of the sweetest animals on this planet. I am a dog lover, and esp. Love pitbulls. However, I would shoot any dog dead where it stood if it attacked me, my loved ones, or my dog.

    This story demonstrates very poor pet ownership responsibility. Pits are a breed that need to have a very strong pack leader and need to be exercised daily. I do both of those things for Ruger. I also believe NO dog should ever be let off leash in a public area, period. I do honestly think pitbulls get a very bad rep, but the ones in this story absolutely need to be put down.

    Keep your dogs on a leash. Control your dangerous animals. I'm glad for the outcome of the article.

    /except for the fact the other two dangerous animals are still out there.

    Well said, the owner demonstrated poor judgement and should never had the three dogs in a public park unleashed. Even if the dogs had been on leash it may have been difficult to control three of that size. Many communities it is against the law to have a dog off leash in public.

    Who knows?
    100% agree. Their owner is a dumbass. I love dogs, pits as well. I think pits can be very good dogs. All dogs require that their owners not be complete idiots. Especially Pit Bulls. A lot of times, bad dogs highlight the defects (or in this case complete reject) of it's owner. Pit Bulls are probably more so the case. Having three large dogs (a pack) unleashed in a public area is a bad idea.

    Always have a concealed gun when strolling , you might encounter a dogowner with a pit. Never take chances with these beasts, dont take your eyes away if you get an encounter.

    Owner had no respect for his dogs. Sad.

    Seems like shooting one is usually enough in these cases.
