    I have only just seen this thread.

    I stuck personal experience after owning a half breed. But would like to couple that with friends experience and also some research.

    It's preferable to me that you form your own opinion about a breed without making a decision based on what the media tells you.

    I thik they are gorgeous dogs but I do believe they can be bad dogs in the wrong hands - as can ANY breed.

    They are not my breed of choice but yes I would own a pure or part again and I am not scared of them.

    You probbaly only just saw it as it was from 2009.

    It seems a spammer may have been rooting out old threads and Kass was jumping on them.

    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Ours was well trained, but i did not like his attitude to stranger dogs........I love friendly dogs, hence I am a newfie person. He was awesome with our Family and any other people though, so I never think of them as attack dogs. And we adored him. Sadly he passed away early due to cancer. He was a rescue and had the clipped ears and all.

    I also have a friend who has 2 well trained American Staff's here in our area. Again great people dogs. But the person who owns them is a dog trainer. He tells me American Staff's are the show-line of Of American Pitt-bulls. He also owns four Rottweilers and one Neapolitan. All are awesome well mannered dogs. He has two little kids, three and six who handle the dogs all the time

    I agree it depends on who is at the other end of the lead, but certain Breed attract the wrong person, which gives certain breed the bad name. If those people owned a Golden Retriever or such like, it would most likely be aggressive, but they would not be attracted to a blond pretty dog. They like the tough image dog. It is sad but true. And thereby affecting all the good owners and ruining it for them and the good dogs.

    Part of the problem is that when these dogs bite, they tend to go for the face/neck area. that is just part of the way they are. I just find what happened today so very scary and sad.

    I will never tell people that they cannot have a breed, but I do believe that certain breeds of dogs, and there are many, should be well trained. Part of the problem is these people do not socialise their dogs and they often live in a lousy backyard, hardly ever seeing their owner. Very few dogs can cope with that. I would love to do a study of dogs that had a severe bite history and find out their living conditions and training level, even the amount of time spent with them (dogs) by their own family. I think if we did that we would see where the real problem was created.......The owners and lack of training.
