do we need to punish the breed or only the deed???? some pitbulls are born to fight but some are to cuddle.... should we stop breeding them or consider their breed as a pet??? we have pitbulls in our house...

I do not feel that the breed needs to be punished. Only the bad owners should. I also think that people should consider having to go through some sort of screening in order to own one. Then maybe there will be less of them that will turn into fighting dogs.

EXACTLY! Thank you for your comment. It is how the pitbull owner nurture their pet. Well in this case, this breed had a lot of bloody history in their line. They will not be called as "pitbull" for nothing. So it will always be the responsibility of the owner on how they will make their pitbull a good loving dog...

As the owner of five pitbulls, I believe it is the owner needs to be punish and not the breed. There are some idiots out there that only own a pitbull because it makes them look tough. They own them for the wrong reasons. People need to get more educated about the breed and not believe everything that the media says.

I would never dream of owning a Pitbull but my son wen to the SPCA here and go one so it's wasn't even born into the family and came from a background that we don't know. She has one bad foot. I was also talking with a friend that has two pitbulls and she thought she knew the dog, now named Honey by the way, and she said the dog either jumped out a two story building are was pushed or thrown. Anyways.... My wife and I were terrified of her at first and then my son lost his job, well he quit, and moved back home. Great now we had dog we didn't want or trust. As we got to know here we found her to be quite gentle, gentler than any dog I had know before, but I still would not trust her. I don't care how long we have known her I still would not trust here around kids or people that don't already know here. Now she has done nothing to make me think she would. It's all the bad press then get which is usually brought on by how they have been raised.

Pit bulls should not be considered a dangerous breed of dog. It should be the owners who are considered dangerous. I don't care what type of dog it is, if you train that dog to hate, and be mean and malicous to that dog then it is a dangerous breed. My fiance and I have a pitbull and he is the sweetest dog in the world. On the other hand his grandma has a small terrier and that dog is vicious and is always biting people. Yes, pitbulls are strong dogs, but that isn't their fault, that is how they are mad. I believe that how you raise an animal determines how their tempermant is. Happy mylotting.

There's no such thing as an evil breed of dogs. Pitbulls are absolutely fantastic dogs, and like you say, they are very cuddly. Some months ago I was doing some maintenance job -read, installing Windows, running virus scans, etc- and I knew I was going to be alone for about 3 hours. Enough to take a nap on the couch. I woke up an hour later, spooning with the house's Pitbull. Rich
