Yeah - outlaw the breed. that way the only people maintaining it will be criminals.
I have a pit. While I have loved every dog I have ever owned, she is the best dog I have ever owned - and I have had dogs my entire life. She is loyal, calm, gentle, obedient, well-behaved, intelligent, eager to please, eager to work, eager to learn and, most importantly, wonderful with my children.
That's more than I can say about my sister's "professionally trained" Jack Russell which has growled and bitten my kids on many occasions.
-No child should be left unsupervised with a dog.
-No dog should be chained up outside or left unsupervised in an area where it can escape or be approached by others (animal or human).
-All companion dogs should be spayed or neutered.
-All dog owners should understand the breed they are committing themselves to when they adopt or buy a pet.
Here is a little rule that I think fits here and is also applicable to almost every facet of politics and government that would make this country a better place:
WE DON'T NEED MORE LAWS! WE NEED TO ACTUALLY ENFORCE THE ONES WE ALREADY HAVE
Finally - your comment about Vincent and his Mother were unnecessary. I know this is the internet, but try showing a little class.
Good luck with your recovery little man and thanks for bringing this story to our attention - please don't let this sully your view on dogs or even this breed.
