Thanks for sharing this article, it was very interesting… I've never owned a pit-bull, so I have zero experience w/them. The people around me that DO own them IMO have not trained them properly… when you are afraid to have people over to your house because you can't control your dog (or you are afraid of what your dog MAY do) that's a problem!!! I absolutely LOVE german shepherds, but right now my life revolves around my kids/grandkid. I don't feel I have the time to work w/one, and I don't want to put my kids at risk. So I don't have one… simple as that. If you can't put the time in to train/work w/a dog like that, then you really shouldn't own one… it's unfair to everyone involved.
