Yeah Deanna...that ignorance cost someone I know a lot of money in reconstructive surgery and a trip to the emergency room. This person was standing on a sidewalk talking to the owner from a distance of 15', when the dog charged.
There are bad breeds because those desired qualities were bred into the dog (in this case, fighting and jaw strength) for a specific purpose. Why do you think the dog is called a "pit bull?"
This particular dog was undergoing rehabilative therapy...and after biting someone I know, the owner took it to a trained, licensed person who was used to handling these dogs. It tried to bite her. It went night night after that.
Everyday there are similar headlines. That breed doesn't get a pass because of a few fans who have tightly controlled their animal.
