    I was responding to , shes a sweet dog, the last person she bit was me, and if you treat them right , they are fine.

    So what happens when a known biter is being walked and a kid grabs the dogs tail or accidentally steps on the dogs paw ? Is it going to bite again ?

    If it does, the owner should be prepared for the resulting civil suit and treble damages.

    As much as I like my dogs, they will not get a second chance to bite another person.

    QFT! My pit would not get a second chance to do it either. Nor would any other breed of dog I had. I will not have an aggressive dog. Period.

    Unless she's a redhead. Redheads bite.




    Oh, you were talking about the dog.

    I think a lot of folks confuse aggression with strength.

    Breeds look, and behave differently. Generally in allignment with the breed standard.
    In other words, I don't buy the "a dog is a dog" argument for a second.

    Can you get a terrier to retrieve? Sure. But you are training against nature. It's far easier to get a retriever to retrieve. You can also teach a monkey to wear a suit and ride a bicycle. But when stressed or threatened, that monkey isn't going to loosen his necktie and pedal his bike to safety. He's going to climb a tree.

    My most recent dog was a terrier with an ENORMOUS prey instinct.
    If he hadn't been deaf and mostly blind, he would have gotten every squirrel and chipmunk in Indy.
    VERY aggressive towards vermin. Super friendly towards other dogs (a lover, not a fighter) and mostly disinterested in humans.

    My first, a Doberman with a goofy personality who loved to cuddle and was an incurable "leaner". She always assumed other dogs wanted to play, cats wanted to be chased, and people were friends- unless she picked up a vibe that told her to behave differently. And I can't say she was ever wrong when she got protective.

    So when I read that a pitbull or pack of pit bulls escaped their yard and attacked another animal, or child, or elderly neighbor, or just someone passing by; I'm not surprised nor shocked.

    No more so than if I read a story about a bloodhound tracking down a lost child or a Labrador winning a dock competition, or a border collie winning an agility competition.

    Just my 2cents.

    Yeaaaa.... And indoor dogs are well known not to bite humans because of what ?
    because your Niece treats them like family members that the dogs now think like a human ?
    Or
    Maybe how nice it is living in a environmently controlled environment ?

    Reminds me of a Red Skelton joke. The Poodle and the Great Dane.

    Just because you're at the center of the Universe doesn't mean you're in it.
