    Well at least part of it is absolutely incorrect.

    Tellingly, while they are not rated as the most aggressive dogs, the pitbull and rottweiler are most likely to kill people, being responsible for nearly 70% of dog bite fatalities or about a third each
    I don't know the stats on rottweilers but pitbulls and pitbull crosses have been responsible for TWO fatalities in Australia, including the so called pitbull which attacked Ayen Chol, out of 33 dog attack fatalities since 1979!

    @mymatejack
    its not incorrect just because you dont feel the same way..everyone gets so riled up on here trying to make everyone else feel the same way as they do...thats never going to happen mate and the forum or even the world would be a pretty boring place if everyone just agreed all the time.
    everyone here has a right to an opinion re: BSL or pittbulls..and no one has the right to say "your wrong"

    Hi Elle,

    I try to respect others opinions no matter how much i think they're wrong(although i certainly reserve the right to say why i think they're wrong) however in this case, as far as Australia is concerned the FACTS are wrong! There has been a study done by a monash uni researcher, the results of which have been published in numerous news articles which clearly states "of 33 dog attack fatalities in australia since 1979 only two have been caused by pitbulls or their crosses, including the recent death of Ayen Chol" (paraphrased). I wonder if you could provide the number of fatalities caused by Labradors in that same period - or prove my FACTS to be wrong(not opinion, FACT)?

    mymatejack yes you have a right to say you dont agree and why but to say people are wrong is kind of arrogant IMO..and why are you bringing labradors into it? to try to provoke me?...im against BSL so your attacking someone who is on your side. I simply believe Pitt bulls are more prone to aggressive behaviours if not trained and brought up correctly. thats it.
    this is simply because every breed was bred for a purpose and its in thier DNA just like labs were bred to retrieve game..they are soft mouthed as not to damage the meat of the game, their paws are webbed for swimming, theyre intelligent and loyal and have the instinct to retrieve...now if i never take my dog and train it to retrieve game of course its not going to retrieve me a duck. but a labradors instinct and ability to retrieve will be that much more than say a pug.
    Why do you think dog fighters chose pitt bulls..out of every breed?
    Pit Bulls are descendants of the original English bull-baiting dog—a dog that was bred to bite and hold bulls, bears and other large animals around the face and head. bred to hang on without releasing their grip, until the animal was exhausted from fighting and from loss of blood.
    As the "sport" of dog fighting developed, enthusiasts bred a lighter, more athletic canine bred and conditioned to never give up when they are fighting, even if it means that they will be badly hurt or killed. serious problems started when these dogs gained the attention of people looking for a macho dog—and to meet their demands, unscrupulous and uncaring breeders are producing puppies that were not only aggressive to other dogs, but also to people.
    These are FACTS taken from the ASPCA website

    now you tell me based on basic instinct, ability and DNA alone which breed has the ability to be more dangerous to other dogs and humans...???

    exactly.

    any dog can attack even a lab i know that...a pitt can be an awesome dog too, gentle as a lamb but pitts have more biological make up to be able and driven to (quote) "attack without releasing their grip, until the prey is exhausted from fighting and from loss of blood"
    verses a lab who was bred in its DNA to be so soft of mouth that they could retrieve a dropped fish without damaging its flesh

    Regarding your "facts"...that is ONE study from someone who is against BSL and is a pitt bull advacate and i couldnt actually view his statistics so i dont really take this particular info as cold hard facts.
    there are so many "studys" flying around u can find one for every point of view on this matter so this fact vs opinion argument gets really old lol everyone think they know better.
    i just see it how i see it and ive always looked to understand dogs by their breed what they were originally bred for and the characteristics and behaviours that go along with that.

    (sorry for spelling grammar its late and its been a long week)

    I haven't posted a while here, though I read a few new comments and opinions - In addition I am amazed that this thread gone viral and 33 pages long LOL

    Anyway - I think end of the day it comes back to "responsible dog ownership", end of STORY

    Someone started another thread about Pitbulls - someone from the ADMIN should close this thread - it's getting nowhere near from the original TOPIC

    I am with MMJ and those stats are incorrect. 70% of fatal attacks from pit bulls... In Australia I think more around 1% if you look at the deaths and breeds involved. Staffordshire Bull Terriers were actually up the top of a list Hyacinth posted for "attacks". But then even that isn't accurate.

    Anyway, regardless of what the American Pit Bull Terrier was originally bred for, it was never bred to show human aggression. Anyone that owns one can expect dog aggression but even that can be managed. You would think my two if I were to look at what their DNA and genes tell me they should be like would want to eat my kitty for breakfast... but they still all manage to live together/play etc.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    That's because you are a responsible dog owner who has trained and raised your dogs well
