Pit Bull apologists will spread any lies and distort facts to protect the breed. For example in this story, American Terrier is a disguise breed name for Pit Bull.
Do your research "Brother Will" and WTH is a "Pit Bull Apologist"? Only people make dogs agressive. The research is there. Don't be the idiot you are presenting yourself to be. I'd take any pit bull over your sorry self.
@Brotherwill, an american terrier is actually a completely separate breed, specific to AKC registrations. The problem with people like you is any dog that is in the news for a bad reason must somehow become a "pitbull". Even if it is a mix, it must be the "pitbull" part of that makes it dangerous. Like most everything else, stupid, ignorant dog owners can make any dog unbalanced by being lazy and not getting the dog proper exercise and care. We run marathons and our dogs, American Pit Bull Terriers (two of them, that don't fight and love kids btw) go with us. Our smaller female has been attacked by people in our neighborhood who think it is okay to let their mean golden retriever run loose simply because it is a golden retriever. Just because a dog is small, its not cute to let it be aggressive to people, same goes for classic breeds like goldens and labs, you can't assume all is well because of the breed, owning any dog takes responsibility. Any unfortunate event is due solely to the owner and they should be fully responsible. Ban dumb people from owning dogs, leave our good dogs alone.
It's Bush's fault.
Dogs are predators. People can (often successfully) try to don't make them act on it. That's all. They are just different breeds of wolves.
A dog will always be a predator and a descendant of a wolf. The larger and more powerful a dog is the more dangerous it is when it once again acts on its instincts.
It's about a tie between the canarios and the hood dogs for biggest piece of useless garbage to keep alive. Frankly I would rather have a box of grenades bouncing about in my dryer than either of those breeds in my home
I hope you and people like you get darwined like this idiot in the story before your children or other innocent bystanders get maimed or killed when your "perfect" dogs decide to snap. You are a negligent parent for keeping those dogs around kids, it's like giving a toddler a loaded revolver to play Russian Roulette with.
Aftering reading this story, I don't think that eating dog is evil. Dogs are just like cows, pigs... You can eat them whenever you want. Period.
Humans made these dogs that way, why does anyone have to rescue if boneheads would just learn how to treat them ,none of this crap would go on it's the males that make them that way!!!!
I guess it is not a lions fault either after it attacks? Nor a shark, a bear, oh wait, I mean a domesticated bear...or is it that they are naturally domesticated? How about that domesticated monkey that bite that woman's face off? That animal was previously treated like a human. Humans have some impact to a animal's (dog in this case) behavior to a degree but to blame most of it on a human makes as much sense as a human makes a poisonous snake dangerous...An animal is an animal and if you want one or a certain type of animal with a higher percentile of aggression, then that is up to you, but to say that its only humans that make an animal attack is insane. I see that a person on here prefers that a humans life is less important than the dogs life. That is when I know that its time to put one down all the same, perhaps a human euthanasia. Dogs are carnivores (hence the teeth). There are overwhelmingly too many incidences to be able to defend aggressive dogs. No doubt very few people entice and miss treat dogs to make them aggressive for wrong purposes, but it is very few in percentage. As far as it being or not being a pitbull, that was a weak point by stating it was not a pitbull. What, so therefore it is not an aggressive dog because it was not a pitbull? There are so many more aggressive dogs than just one type...
I love dogs, but I know you can never trust a dog 100%. Anyone who says otherwise is a damn fool. RIP, lady.
The Gooch "I love dogs, but I know you can never trust a dog 100%. Anyone who says otherwise is a damn fool.". If you can't trust dogs you shouldn't have a dog to start with, I can't imagine living with an animal I wouldn't trust and/or would be afraid of. - Now about this case, one of the dogs she adopted may have had an history of aggressivity, and despite her natural affinity with animals, it was too much for her. What I don't understand is why none of the other dogs (assuming only one of them attacked her) helped her, usually if one of the dogs gets too excited (while playing for example) and the others feel a danger for the owner, they become very protective (of the owner), at least from my experience.
Okay, let me clarify. I trust a dog to be a dog and, at some point, instinct can and will take over. Just as I know I can't trust ANY animal (shucks, even people) 100%. I can control my dogs... when I'm around. The problem is, morons who think they have to be friends with every dog they meet and who, as humans, can't obey voice commands (e.g., "Hey, don't go near my dog. He will bite."). Both of my dogs are rescues. One is very docile and well-socialized. The other is a mixed breed St.Bernard/collie who came to my family as a juvenile. Great dog for one owner, but is very anxiety ridden and absolutely will not tolerate other adult human males. My problem to control if and when he leaves my property with me. Other folks' problem if they show up to my home and disregard warning signs and directives to wait until I can contain the dog.
Some dogs have been given a raw deal both thru treatment and genetics. Like people, not all dogs are good and worth saving. If a person can't recognize that, I know he or she is not worthy of trust.
I stand by me statement: Only a damn fool ever places a 100% trust in any animal. At best, we exert control and engender some sense of social order. Like people, dogs run the spectrum of personalities. Some dogs are jerks.
Sigfried and Roy probably trusted a tiger. The lady in CT trusted her chimp. I'm sure when you read stories about dogs maiming children, those dogs were trusted, also.
@Brotherwill I am rarely so direct, but you are an idiot. You know absolutely nothing about dogs if you believe that BS. Pit bulls can be just as good as any other type of dog, and they're not the only dog that can be dangerous. American terriers and pit bulls are two entirely separate types of dogs. Why don't you actually learn a thing or two about the dogs before you give your infinitely well informed opinion next time.
Pit Bulls should be illegal to own without a permit. You need a permit to own a gun, and a gun won't kill anyone by itself.
Actually, dogs are “omnivores” as they eat plants and meat. But you knew that too….

So what do what have here? A news media idiot tracking down an internet idiot to have us hear more idiotic remarks! Simply idiotic!!!
Actually, I think the point is more to get people to understand that this kind of behavior is unacceptable and if you engage in it, it just might be YOU who ends up being exposed on the tele. A bully is a terrorist, a terrorist is a bully. Weather it's words or bombs, the intent is to harm innocent people. It can not, should not be tolerated.

Lazy? Well Mr. President you are anti-jobs especially when it comes to the Keystone Pipeline. Make no mistake about it the only reason Obama is against this pipeline is the proposed path it will be built on. Every state the pipeline will run through will be in a Right To Work state. Ask Boeing what its like when you want to build a new plant and hire American citizens desperate for a job in a Right To Work state. You get sued by the Federal Goverment.
