    No dog of that size should ever be trusted around kids.

    You introduced another dog to the pack and the pecking order had to be sorted out. The Staffy laiid on it's back and "gave up" and the pecking order was restored. You will have no more trouble unless you introduce another dog to the pack. Then the pecking order will have to be sorted again.

    I have to disagree with you on that remark. I have grown up around large dogs and have found them to be better around kids than most small dogs. My personal experience is that more kids have been bitten by small dog. It is not the size or breed of a dog that makes it safe or not it is the training and temperment that matters.

    I have never had an issue with any large dogs and kids.As matter of fact I've never had an issue with any of my dogs and children (and I had a Doberman that hated children). It's not about what breed is most likely to bite a child, it's about how much damage will be done if the worst happens. The child may be seen by the dog as a threat or 'one of the pack' and if the child is bitten by a Roti or a Foxey who is going to do the most damage? Children are at face level and it is way better to err on the side of caution than be sorry.

    Freinds of our had a Doberman and we left town and on one of our visits back we went to see them and there was the larger than life Doberman.
    Now he was a rescue or he was given to them, many years have past and that info is useless so I don't remeber.
    But the dog I do.
    He was a large think set one and I think he would have been the most solid one I have ever seen.
    But what a sook kids could roll over him and he never cared.
    So yer some big dogs are sooks so give them the chance.

    OK, well your very first sentence contradicts all you have abeen sprouting all over the board re the APBT.
    SEcondly,you had a Doberman that hated children ; the responsible thing to do would of been to rehome the dog .

    It is not about breed and what damage can be done to a child at all.
    Yes a larger dog of course has a bigger mouth etc.....but c'mon,be realistic. A jack Russel can inflict just as bad injuries to a small child . Size by size ratio...A Foxey can do just as much damage to a childs face as a rotty as the ratio of childs size to that of each individual breed of dog is dependent on many variables.

    And thats just it,a child is at face level more often that not of the smaller breeds,so if we go by logic, which scenario then is going to produce to worst outcome?

    And if you are for big dogs etc....why is it that the APBT should be banned ?
    What are your reasons for banning the breed ?
    Genuine question and I would like your honest personal opinion answers .

    What an absolutely foolish thing to say. It certainly highlights your misconceptions on dog pshycology very well .

    Why do they want apbt to be banned? because they are a sheep and following all the media. A sensible person would realise that it has nothing to do with a breed of dog. It has to do with tempremant, training, how theyve been brought up. Media just loves to have something to highlight... you never hear about all the other dog attacks in australia??? why because media hide the facts.
