I have a three year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier and she is the most gentle, loving dog I have ever owned. The idea that she could be seized and destroyed based purely on her breed sickens me.

Anyone interested in showing their support against this disgusting law should go here

Discuss.

Check the video ID. It's unfounded when I try to find it.


Miami-Dade County in Florida has a ban on pit bulls as well because they are "dangerous" and were used in dog fights. I think just about any dog is as "dangerous" as the next. Obviously bigger, more muscular dogs can do more damage. Training is all that is needed.

I support what a lot of dog owners say. There are no bad dogs, just bad owners.

Yeah, those dogs look scary to deal with but it is wrong and unfortunate. They are lazy though so would rather just not specify bad owners....it sucks.

The owner makes the difference. Theres a guy with a labrador that lives round the corner from me. Its the same age as my Labrador and when they were pups they were both really playful and I seen him all the time. but then the thick fucker trained and beat it half to death and now its an insanely evil animal. Its easy to take a playful dog, no matter what breed, and make it a potential killer.

Exactly, the only time a dog should be seized and "Disposed of" is if it has a serious physical or mental problem.

this all just dumb ... it's almost like racism.
I can say my neighbor had a male pitbull and it was a good, nice dog. and then it had puppies with another female pitbull and i got one of them and i have not had any problems. i think Pitbulls are good loyal dogs.

While I do think that some dogs (pitbulls for example) were bred for aggression, and therefore need to be more stringently trained, that does not mean they are all evil. A dog should only be killed if there is evidence that it poses a threat to society (evidence not being its breed, obviously). I fully agree with the owner makes the dog, which explains why my Golden Retriever is a soft cock who needs me to fight his battles with the puppy for him.

I think all big dogs should be harvested for their meat. We should only be able to own cuddly puppies.

Plus there are enough dogs/cats/etc awaiting adoption as it is. So many already get put down for lack of interest from adopting families and things like this don't help.

I made a search and from what I find, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a race that suits experienced dog owners. It is not so dangerous that it should be banned.

I fully support ban on American Pitbull and Amstaff.

Some dog races are breed for aggression. It's not the dog's fault, but those races are generally dangerous.

It IS racism in the true sense of the word. tongue.gif
Pitbulls can be good dogs, I guess you were lucky. But know that good dogs can snap some day, and some dog races are more likely to snap than others. wink.gif
