There is no doubt that this is a tragic, unfortunate event. However, the media continually ignores events involving other breeds of dogs and focuses on pit bulls. In the past the Doberman and Rottweiler breeds were demonized. Today, it's the pit bulls' turn. Folks, it's not the breed. Any breed of dog, without proper discipline, exercise and early socialization has the ability to snap. A chained dog or an unsocialized dog can also prove dangerous. We have a 3 yr old rescued pit bull and he lives happily with our three other very small dogs and two children. We took him to dog obedience classes as a puppy and we run him two miles a day every day as these dogs require tons of exercise. We take him to the park where he plays with other dogs of all sizes. We do this because before we adopted him we educated ourselves on the breed. We invested the time to learn what this breed requires. If an owner is not committed to doing the right things to keep a balanced and stable dog than its best not to own one. Education is key here...not labeling a breed as bad.
