@ Angel, you're a pussy who knows nothing about animals.
You are, no doubt, male and young, so much violence in you still.
Humans can be innocent or not innocent, all animals are innocent, look it up.
Go ahead and try to kick the crap out a dog who is out of control, not gonna happen tough guy, just in your fearful dreams.
@ Jake-- This conversation is not about children/babies so please don't turn it into one. Children and babies should be under your control when around dogs. Dogs should be under their masters control at all times, especially around small, noisy, unpredictable people who are the size of prey. That is just common sense.
The 67% figure you quoted/provided (repeated) is incorrect.... sorry but you are just repeating an incorrect statistic, no possible way to accurately report the statistic you are quoting. The CDC has admitted that their own statistics for the last 20 years are crap. People can (and do) often see 20 different breeds as one, so your numbers have no basis. That has a lot to do with media conditioning and a lumping of dog "types" labeled incorrectly for thirty years on TV, and in print media. Until you blood test a dog, you don't really know what breed of dog it is, random "eyewitness" statements are useless. I can give you a visual test and you will fail it all day long. You will look at ten pictures of a "Black Lab" and not one dog in the group is a Black Labrador Retriever dog. I can show you a pretty well known group of pictures (a chart) showing twenty eight "Pitbulls".....only one of the dogs turns out to be an American Pit Bull Terrier. You would not believe the range of dog breeds represented in this group of pictures. As for what dog breeds deserve to die and what innocent breeds should be saved, please go check ATTS dog temperment tests and tell me what dog breeds are stable and what dog breeds are not. Then please go check up on what happened to those "vicious" Pitbull fighting dogs that were rescued from that pig Michael Vick. They are now loving pets in nice homes with small children and cats and small doggie room mates, it's been years and these dogs have "turned" on who,...not a soul! Please don't keep passing on statistics that are not real. I appreciate your experience with dog bite victims and I'm glad that you still have love for the animals. I appreciate that.
I am an avid advocate of responsible dog ownership, I can't stand ignorant idiots who do not raise or control their animals properly, it causes a lot of heartache for responsible dog owners and pain/suffering/death for too many dogs, but blaming the animals is just stupid. The group I work with here in Austin was founded to promote responsible dog ownership and education, and to provide free training opportunities. The organization works every day to help dogs in need as well. And you scared little boys who are acting tough are not fooling anybody. I am a Pit Bull advocate and I've spent more time with dogs than some folks. I have little patience for people who are uninformed, and especially uninformed, fearful, angry and irrational. Dogs are full of love and can be trusted far more often than many, many people. Dogs who are not socially well adjusted can be made right fairly quickly and permanently.....not so easy with crappy humans.
OK, I gotta stop....I can't fix this tonight.
