    I said my piece (more than once) and he responded.

    Dr Wirth, I believe that most people would be accepting of legislation that ensured dangerous dogs were not part of our society. The issue for me, and millions of others around the world, is that innocent dogs are unfairly targetted by BSL. Why can't the RSPCA come up with a solution that sees known aggressive dogs, regardless of breed, removed from society whilst allowing family pets to remain part of the family unit?

    Why don't you make a considered submission to the RSPCA on what you think its policy should be and how it should be developed?

    Did you read the idiot comment regarding Pugs being bred to fight originally? Good grief.

    No Dogsavvy - see thats how well the media works.
    it was suggested by a lady that maybe that dog was responsible for her cat the day before. Something I highly doubt but hey ? Who knows? Not the media and certainly not me.

    I did Anne , it was laughable great way to start.

    You should of realised that if it made sense and required more brain cells than half a dozen , he would have no idea how to implement it and would need you to do it for him

    RRRRR.

    Had a *discussion* about this with a woman who brought her Beagle in today.
    I told her dogs fights happen every single day and if the attack was made by a Beagle it wouldn't have made news.
    Enough said.

Gave up on them about five years ago now, why? I honestly do not see why anyone needs to own a dog bred for killing other dogs, anyone going to argue that? I also know of a woman who through her own silly fault tried to break up two male pitties who both got hold of her arm. The end result was 9 hours micro surgery in westmead hospital including skin grafts along with tendon & vein taken from her leg to save the arm which they were considering amputating. I have since worked at a training centre in Sydney & learnt & seen the control & true intelligence of a dog with brains. The owners of pit bulls always throw up the "condem the deed, not the breed" yet seem to forget that the breed wants to do the deed more than anything else! I love dogs, have done all my life yet I do not see the need for this breed to exist. I guess I will get bagged out for this, which is what I expect, but I know I"m right. After training all breeds for more than ten years, the only thing a pit bull can do better than other breeds is fight, again, the point of owning one is????
    I own a ABPT and he is a great family pet, thats my point of owning one, you have a look at the stats of bite rates in any state, i think there were something like 400 admissions for dog bites, makes you wonder what breeds were responsible for these, definatley not ABPT as there was no beat up from the media.

    I apologise if I have misunderstood your comment , but need that clarified for me.
    No, I did not say that. All of my dogs were stable, confident & untrustworthy around strangers or other dogs. Sorry, but thats the way it was. My male Belgian is not to be trusted with strangers but at the same time he will follow commands EVERY time regardless of what is happening around him. I guess I"m in for a bagging sooner or later!! I do understand you love your dogs, I think the main problem the breed has had is too many inexperienced people getting them.

    Why would people just out of the blue for no reason consider them a dangerous breed?

    The fact is they are a strong breed. If not trained properly, or if trained to be aggressive they are an enormous danger.
    A different breed may bite, but only a PBT or a Doberman would hang on for 20 minutes with 4 men kicking the shit out of it.

    The damage they can cause his horendous and they HAVE attacked unprovoked causing loss of life or permanent injury more than any other breed. There's no conspiracy theory there.. it's as simple as another attack by another PBT that is another statistic towards the danger of the breed.

    No conspiracy Puggerup.
    Just BSL.


    As for the stats and the APBT obviously earning the sentence?
    What of the other breeds on the list ?
    When the Pits are gone , what dog is next ?

    There have been a few fatalities this year ( so sad ) and none were a APBT.

    *shrugs*
    Go figure.
