No wonder people push for BSL - when you have people saying that dog aggression is NORMAL. Why normalise something that is less than desirable.
People say our kids are dumber, I say our expectations are lower. I raise expectations in my classroom and lo and behold I get a better response from students. Why on earth would I feel differently about dogs? The two rescues I have here are broken animals physically - unrehomable - but they have the best temperments I have seen in dogs and that is why they are still here. They will see their days out with me. I have refused to take dogs before that are suspect and I will pts any animal I am concerned about.
Normalising bad traits doesn't make them right. I am astounded that you and it seems others, believe that dog aggression is par for the course. So many nice bull breeds around WHY settle for less?
As for your nasty little comment about not dealing with these dogs because "it's too hard and time consuming" - what utter rot. I've worked with dogs - where it has been hard and time consuming - but even at the end of it I would not rehome a dog that was suspect.
I repeat again for those who keep missing it
AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOUR DOES NOT EQUAL AGGRESSION. A NORMAL DOG CAN DISPLAY AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR. AN AGGRESSIVE DOG IS UNABLE TO DISPLAY ANY OTHER BEHAVIOUR.
I am beginning to understand why there are breed restrictions. Very sad IMO as there are so many nice dogs around to choose from.
