Lyn, what a GREAT reply- thank you. I have always believed that ANY dog
is capable of injuring or killing a human. With their superior speed and
jaw strength and instincts it's really not much of a contest. Yet they
are willing to be shaped into what we want and need from them- companions,
Okkkk, but if a dog has been for a hundred years to fight in a pit,,,, can a
person not respect that???? If for thousands of years a dog has been
hunted as food as in China,,,,, as in Chow,,, shouldn't a person respect
You can tell me all you want of how cute or lovable a pitbull pup can be but
I have to fall back on what they are and have been.... I have seen the proof
too many times....
You must always be aware of them and what they are doing- and
be responsible for keeping them healthy, socialized and trained, contained
in your yard or home and be responsible for their actions. Dogs are dogs-
they are not and never will be human.
But we have to consider what they have been over a thousand years IN WHAT
THEY might do or BECOME.
That said I have four precious well-loved lap dogs- ranging from 65 to 100
lbs. They are loving, gentle lap dogs because that's what I want from
them and that's what I trained them to be. Note that- I *trained* them.
That's the key in dog ownership.
You are saying your training is stronger than has taken place over
generations and I am saying that I do not believe you and have seen the
proof of what is taking place.
