Before anyone goes off on a hysterical rant about pit bulls, I'd like to point out that pit bull dogs aren't the only dogs that can be dangerous. Any dog breed has bad apples in the bunch, but it's pits that grab the headlines. The American Temperament Testing Society does annual testing of thousands of dogs representing dozens of breeds, and the pit bull breeds regularly rank up in the top most human-friendly breeds. Unfortunately these dogs are easily and heavily abused in many cases, and in other cases simply don't have an owner that can give them the attention, exercise, and training they need, though what the history is with this one in particular is unclear here. I'd like to see a followup investigating what the dog's history and even breeding may have been. It may well not even be a pit bull dog, but just sorta looks like one.
