I think that considering how many of the bully breeds already end up in shelters and killed every year, why would anyone want to bring more into the world when there are GREAT and LOVING ones waiting to find forever homes.
I am a Pitt Bull owner and while I love and adore my pitt, I do understand their breeding history. I would be an ignorant owner if I was not aware of my Sparkles potential to be aggresvie or possible violent.
That having been said- ANY BREED has the potential to be violent and aggresive. It continues to be unfair sterotype of bullies to label them as the breed that kills and should be feared. It's a sad time when a Pitt is set on fire by their owner in Baltimore and left to burn to death while people stand by and watch. I stand by the argument and believe strongly that it is how a breed is raised and trained by their owners in how they turn out. If you train a dog to fight-it's going to fight. No matter the breed. Maybe people should place some of the blame on the horrible OWNERS who raise their pitt bulls to fight, leave them tied up outside with no food or water....
It upsets me to see people who say that a breed should be completly flushed out, how ignorant. Do I think more breeds need to be created? No, again hundreds of thousands of Animals get put into shelters each year and many of them (especially bully breeds) are put down. Are there cases where bully breeds attack and injury people? Yes, unfortuantly there are...but has anyone stopped to look at the owners, why were these dogs left unattended, off the leash? Any dog has the potential to be violent and until the public stops relying ignorantly on the media who only report the horror stories, instead of mentioning the Bully Breeds who are rescue dogs, who share their homes with babies and children, who sleep in their owners beds, who are GREAT, AMAZING, and SMART dogs we will continue to have the sterotype.
Don't bring more bullies into the world when there are people who don't take the time, responsibilty and effort to train and raise them right.
