My mother in law's most vicious dog was a Boston terrier. The two pit bull German Shepard mixes she had were terrified of him and they were four times his size. It's the dog, not the breed.

Then it's a damn good thing my mother in law moved out of state because she had six at one time!

Can we put in an ordinance banning ignorant people from the city? Oh right, we can't because we'd have a ghost town which could be beneficial to the intelligent part of the population. And that ban would include sitting council members. To actually say that you are (Council members) actually considering a Breed Specific ordinance should be bitten yourself...It's the owners who are responsible, NOT the dog! You can save your crappy websites that say...oh, this breed is bad, this one is good. It's a bunch of BS. A dog is only as good as it's environment, nurturing and responsible breeding. I have had so many dogs, so many breeds...had to put a cocker down because she was poorly breed and mean (not by me)...but the others would let little kids dress her up like a doll. I've been attacked by a rottie and yet have a close relationship with several others that will lick you to death and trust beyond measure. I've lived with dobies that were so sweet. There was even a story a few years back of a newfie being mean. Mine was the sweetest, most gentle dog. My son used to ride my mother's like a horse (she had 3). These 'ignorant' comments about pits and rotties being mean and untrustworthy are so unfounded and those of you who say they are are just plain stupid.

Suzy, asking them to read and learn is futile, they'd rather bash. I too will stand up to any ordinance that generates breed specific legislation in this city and if they decide to illegally enter MY property to take my property they can stare down the barrel of the other piece of property I own!

Only humans discriminate, unfortunately a dog will still love their abuser after being beaten, burned,chained,starved, and enduring torture for years. The same dog after being rescued from a life of abuse will open it's heart, to a person with a true heart. They won't judge you on looks, just what's inside. From all my years on this earth, it's humans who lie, decieve, and discriminate. Every person I've talked to that are against Bully Breeds, have NOT ONCE EVER in their life even had one contact with a Bully ! It's just what they hear on the news, or read about...please get a life. Maybe volunteer and educate yourself on ALL dog breeds, before you condemn a breed on looks !
