It's not like they train them to rationalize targets. Even a kid is an invader. Many of these dogs are abandoned after some of this training and the aggressiveness continues as a stray. Many times they are also trained as fight dogs making it even worse.

    The only reason Owl doesn't like Pit Bulls, is because she said they don't taste good.

    Not really, pit bulls can be little angels like most dogs. Even the wild dogs and wolves don't really attack people much. It's all about the owner when it comes to dogs. My neighbor has a relative that comes by all the time and he has two of them that are only on leash when he wants them to stay out of the water. Just a couple of slobbery beg machines that do fine even with children around. The neighbor's cat does more damage with the bird kills.

    Yep, letting cats outside is bad for both other animals and for the kitty as well. I'm glad you like your neighbors' dogs but a few positive anecdotal stories do not overcome the statistics that show that these dogs are dangerous and far more likely to inflict serious or fatal wounds on both humans and other animals.

    Like I said it's in the training. They aren't aggressive to people by nature but they can be territorial with food with other dogs. Hell, even my gentle angel Hazel gets that way. It's natural in most canines. Canines have instinctive nature to gorge on food. The amount one wolf can eat at a sitting is staggering.

    Experts do not agree with you. Their aggressiveness is in-bred (by shitty ppl) and is genetic. As EE pointed out early on in this discussion, the dogs were bred for sport, hunting, fighting. You're right; shitty ppl can make this tendency even worse. I hesitated to post this account because it is inflammatory. Yet it is pretty typical of city-dwellers and pit bulls and it does confirm what you say about making an already-dangerous breed of dog into killers.

    August 26th is also Women's Equality Day!

    Coincidentally, National Dog Day was founded by a woman (Colleen Paige) in 2004. The date is very special, as August 26th is when her father adopted their first family dog. Interestingly enough, there was nothing about Women's Equality Day found on the internet in 2004, which makes these two special initiatives, come together years later to create one of the greatest in days in history. Both are relevant, necessary, vital and have both reached a robust level of popularity, trending side by side, worldwide on Twitter and Google. This is just one of many examples of how women can succeed at anything they choose. Women and dogs clearly make the world a better place! "

    You would think that someone in her 60s wouldn't be this rotten, but you'd be wrong. And in Ohio, no less. Here are some crumbs for the attention whore. lol

    ~~~
    AKRON, Ohio - A 64-year-old woman faced aggravated robbery and vicious dog charges, accused of releasing pit bulls to attack a grocery store manager while he was questioning a suspected shoplifting.

    Linda S. Snow of Norton was arrested at her Hametown Road home early Tuesday.

    Her dog, a black pit bull with white accents, was impounded by Summit County humane officers.

    Police say Snow was accused of leaving an East Avenue Acme store, along with an accomplice, without paying for groceries.

    Suspects in Akron grocery theft used pit bulls in escape

    The attack happened when the manager went out to investigate.

    "A staff member goes out to inquire if they had a receipt and as he's walking out and approaching them the owner of the vehicle opens the door, releases two dogs and attacks the employee; then, they get in the van and drive away with the groceries and the animals," said Akron Police Captain Dave Laughlin.

    Police say the manager suffered severe injuries and told them he believes the dogs were following commands from their owners.

    "As he was being attacked he could hear the woman give the dogs a command to release and they did and then retreated back to her, so it sounds like it was a trained dog to respond on command," said Laughlin.

    On Tuesday, Norton police released documents to FOX 8 News that show they had responded on at least two previous occasions to Snow's address because of complaints that her dogs had attacked other people.

    A neighbor told police she was at her mailbox when a pit bull raced across the street at her, biting her on her forearm and on her hip.

    According to the complaint, the neighbor did not want police to take any action, fearing retaliation.

    A second complaint was filed after a jogger told police she was attacked by a dog fitting the exact same description of the one impounded on Tuesday while passing Snow's residence.

    She told police she was bitten and scratched multiple times by the dog until the homeowner ran out and grabbed the dog.

    Snow was issued a summons for 'dog running at large.'

    Police say after her arrest on Tuesday she made statements admitting to the incident outside of the Akron Acme store.

    "After Ms Snow was taken into custody, she was brought to the Akron Police Department for questioning and under her Miranda rights she did confess to the crimes," said Laughlin.

    Police on Tuesday were seeking warrants for the arrest of her alleged accomplice, believed to be a relative, and the second dog believed to have been used in the attack was also expected to be impounded.
