Even though WE are responsible owners, we get punished for what bad people have done. No animal just snaps, there are always signs. Pits ARE just like every other dog, and just like all the other dogs require a responsible owner who knows how to manage their dog. I wonder why you have linked zero sources to back up your misguided claims.

Since the media, police, and animal control all have problems identifying pit bull type dogs properly, I assuredly would not expect a surgeon to be able to any better than they could. The author did say that pitbull-type dogs are not for first time dog and non experienced dog adopters. I think you missed some of her points. I find many reported "pitbull attacks" by media are not putbulls at all.

I've seen enough report where they were calling mastiffs and boxers any pitbull by non-dog breed experts. I had some women swear my pitbull is a beagle. People and media jump on pitbulls are the most vicious animals ever because it gets people's attention.
I haven't hear any stories of former Vick dogs attacking anyone. In fact, all the stories I have heard and follow have been positive. Some were put down and some not allowed to be adopted out but many became great family members with proper training and socialization.
Needs of the Pitbull-Type Dog
You obviously ignored all the dozens of studies done on this subject and came up with your own bias study. Congratulations on taking pride in your narrow-mindedness and your ignorance! Not a word to what you wrote. There is no breed that attacks more than others. How about checking facts before posting utter nonsense. A fascinating article. The part about pitbulls thinking with their hearts and not their heads is true in many, but not all ways.
Ours is very smart, and will work out details in his head as he tries to figure things our. My son bought our pitbull into our lives. Kahleb, has proven himself to be loyal and loving picking up on others in pain whether human, or animal. My wife and I are in our early 60's. Our son encouraged us the help him learn to behave by pretending we were in pain when his exuberant behavior hurt us physically.
It worked! Once we opened our house to another rescue, and when this dog was hurting my wife by accident, my wife starting overacting from the pain. Kahleb's eyes grew large as pancakes, and he immediately grabbed the tail of the other dog, and forced her into her kennel! I would recommend anyone considering a pitbull take the time to learn about the breed from dog handlers. They are worth taking the time to learn how to raise them right the first time.
Thanks for pointing out that jumping is a way of greeting and is not aggressive. You also mention that bully puppies need a lot of socialization. I think it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the breed before you adopt. The data are facts, not opinions. The law does not blame animals. Responsible ownership is desirable but not enforceable or mandatory. Look who is coming into power in this nation. Your email address will not be published.

It's important that your dog can respond to your commands when you are at the park just as well as it does in your living room. This step of training is referred to as proofing. It's important to remember, however, that each dog is an individual. Some do well in households with other dogs, while others show aggression toward other dogs. It can't be stressed enough that aggression toward dogs does not equal aggression toward humans.
Just because a pit bull is intolerant of other dogs does not mean it is going to be aggressive toward people.
Training – Love-A-Bull
It involves testing your dog on several skills, and if it passes the test, the dog gets a Canine Good Citizen certificate from the AKC. To pass the test, your pit bull must know some basic obedience skills, be able to walk through a crowd, accept being petted by strangers, and not react to other dogs it passes. You also must sign the Responsible Pet Owners Pledge. Any dog can benefit from the Canine Good Citizen Program. For pit bulls, it can also provide proof that you have a well-behaved, friendly pet.
It is something you can show potential landlords or neighbors as proof that your dog is a good canine citizen. It's just one more step in changing the public's perception of the pit bull as a vicious dog. Pit bulls are usually energetic and fun to train. Many of them do well in advanced obedience and dog sports, such as agility or rally obedience.
These activities are a great way to have fun and bond with your pit bull and reinforce good behavior at the same time. Advanced obedience and dog sports have the added benefit of offering the perfect combination of exercise and mental stimulation that these active and intelligent dogs crave. A well-trained dog will be able to take its cues from you rather than reacting to the presence of another dog. If you are having trouble keeping your dog from showing aggression toward other dogs, consider working with a trainer. A lot of training facilities offer classes to help with just this problem.
You may see them referred to as Feisty Fido or reactive dog classes. When it comes down to it, pit bulls are really no different when it comes to training than any other dogs. The difference comes from the public's perception of pit bulls.
