    IMO this is an aggressive dog issue NOT a Pitbull issue, but the media LOVES to stir the pot when it comes to the breed. I know people who own Pitbulls and American Bulldogs and they honestly can NOT handle their dogs. If you decide to own these breeds you need to be able to control them and work w/them on a regular basis NOT just puppy kindergarten. I would honestly LOVE to have a German Shepard, but I don't have the time to dedicate to the breed at this time in my life. Bulldogs don't have a huge exercise need and that works for my family at the moment. Most people are selfish and don't take the time to research before they bring a dog home...

    My dog trainer has told me that once a dog bites it's extremely hard to rehabilitate... REGARDLESS of the breed. She refuses to re-home any dog that can not be around children because her opinion is that you can NEVER say that your dog will never be around a child. My cousin had 2 great danes take down and kill one of his horses and the dogs were put down.

    Montreal pit bull ban: registration deadline is Friday - Montreal | Globalnews.ca
    Read link first then you'll get it.

    As most knows Nyala has 2 pits cousins. They are absolutely friendly n not one bad bone in them. Im from Montreal and we are having a issue and this idiot Mayor that just forced pit bull owners to register them all which is OK on that part but....if you dont city has the right to euthanizing your dog!?!?!? Vets all came together n the spca that not one of them will euthanize any pit bull. Like this story, lady got attack by a pitbull and die. Yes 200% it's sad but it's not the dog the problem its whos on the other end of the leash. It's not just pit bulls, you cant pin point one race. 2 labs here in Alberta attack a woman. Labs!!!! I myself had to make the biggest decision in my life when it came time to put down my GS because he was getting more n more dangerous. Like Christine said, the little ones are the worst. They are usually the ones that starts. Pit bulls do have a bad rap because of idiot owners using them to fight and next thing you know it becomes a chain reaction and copy cat issue.

    As is often the case, humans have screwed things up. Breeding for aggression, prey-drive, size, strength and any other attribute that is fighting ring-worthy has really messed this dog up. Pits can be as gentle as any other breed but in the wrong environment and under the control/direction of unscrupulous owners and breeders they can be killers. The dog is so powerful, quick and agile that when provoked it becomes a meat and bone shredder. Too many times when that kill switch is flipped on it cannot be turned off. I simply HATE what the dog-fighting people have done to this breed.
    My firm was fortunate enough to supply the interior trim and finish work for a prominent NFL football star. I enjoyed telling people about that job and how nice the home was and a lot of particulars about the project. Now I rarely speak of it. It was Mike Vick's house. Embarassing...disappointing, infuriating, sad.
    Not just anyone can own one. These dogs need to be treated like a 1000HP sports car...taken for granted they can get away from one and cause catastrophic damage.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    On a more humorous note, crows in downtown Vancouver are dive bombing passersby every spring. They are highly intelligent and recognize faces, so will remember if you throw something at them or if your dog attacks their young ones.
