A closer look at a “hero pit bull” story

We’ve long been curious about the rash of “hero pit bull” puff piece stories that seem to sprout like mushrooms immediately after each new horrific pit bull attack. Curious because they almost invariably seem suspect; there is little if any evidence, only a story from a somewhat less than impartial pit bull promoter.

pit-bull-hero

Along the same lines, we’ve seen the sort of stories designed to evoke pity for pit bulls and their owners, involving faked assaults and other hoaxes. Even more disturbing are the cases where pit bull owners cover up attacks by their own, even when the attack is on themselves or their family members, blaming the attack on a unknown loose dog, a mystery cougar, or some other innocent 3rd party – all for the sake of avoiding more bad news about pit bull violence, and propping up a carefully crafted image of pit bulls as safe, dependable pets

Recently, we were able to get a peek at the inside of the creation of a hero pit bull story, the type which would certainly have been prominently featured at the likes of Huffington Post

charged-tawana-laue

Tauwana Madison Shafer Laue reported that a man tried to abduct her child a week ago outside an elementary school, but her awesome hero pit bull intervened and saved the day, biting the bad man and chasing him away.

The police followed up, checking security cameras at the scene, and found that nothing of the sort had taken place there. Laue, confronted with the facts, quickly adjusted her story, claiming she was confused, and claimed that it had actually taken place elsewhere, even offering to take a polygraph test. The police accommodated her and scheduled one.

Laue was a no-show for the polygraph test.

It was a lucky break that in this particular “hero pit bull” plot, there were security cameras monitoring the location of the purported heroism, which revealed it for the sham it was. One would do well to take any such reports of pit bull heroism with a grain of salt – not that a dog – any dog – might not do something useful, but with the pit bull propaganda machine in full swing, there is a lot of pressure to create pit bull puff pieces to try and distract attention from the horrific maulings that take place every day.

    • Well, to be fair, this person only faked a pit bull hero story – a very common thing to do, it seems. As for what she would do if her pit bull attacked her child, it’s hard to say.

    • Im sick of you ignorant fuc you ks ! .. If and try owning a pitbull for once and you will see the deference in pitbulls are so blood thirsty then why does my 1 yr old full blooded pitbull play well with others and loves the kids around my neabor hood and also elderly lady across from me, my dog greets her every day and plays with her little white dog .. its all how you raised them and also important to know both parents and thier temperment …. I will continue to educate Stupid ignorant ass’s like you all … oh and also this story probably fake but he is a real one that made news headline a pitbull being let out to use the bathroom spotted a lost elderly lady and saved her life and another one saved his owner from being murdered by her husband … so what do you have to say about …

      • Re-read your diatribe with an eye toward spelling, grammar and syntax errors. Then call others “Stupid ignorant ass’s” [sic] with a straight face.

      • LOL! I couldn’t understand what you were saying your spelling and grammar are so bad. Try speaking english, people might take you more seriously, though not if you’re spouting how great fighting breeds of dogs are…

      • Im with you here. Im 50 years old and havebeen arlund all kindsof animals all mylife owning cats and dogs and the last 30 years been around alotof PITS AND Rotties and they are the most loving breeds truly I think I’ve ever been around. It is so the owner and not the breed!! I have put my face and whole arm in Pits cages at local shelters to pet and give them love and not once has one ever even attempted to bite me and animals are usually highly stressed in a shelter too. I dont k.ow why some people make up some hero stories its all new to me but Im sure most people dont. I would rather confront a stray Pit Bull late night on the street any day than a strange man thats for sure. Fear other humans not animals. Blame man he wanted to domesticate dogs and cats hundreds of years ago as pets and did do the animals didnt even ask to be coexisting with us. I have some college background and have seen all types of people owning Pitts not just tatted people by far. My Mom loves them and shes not tatted and hates low life people. We owned a Rottie and my 84 yr old Grandma lived with us and one evening she took the trash out to the side yard to our big trash cans and she fell on cement and couldnt get up and no one was home except for my Dad who was way out on the other side of the house in the garage and my Grandma wasnt into big dogs only smaller size type dogs really so she never really got close to HoneyBear yes my Dad named her that and oh supposedly the father dog of her had killed a dog before and I think they had to have him put down too but anyways HoneyBear was outside by the big trash cans when my Grandma fell and she came up to my Grandma and took her head like or nose and head and wedged it up under my Grandmas arm to try and help her up!! When my Grandma told me this story she had tears in her eyes and told me thats her baby girl now!! HoneyBear always walked slowand gentle like whenshe walked near my Grandma like she knew she was frail like but around me and my sister she wzlked normal like . Dogs are pretty damn smart. Smarterprob thanalot of humans in yhis world and much better souls for damn sure. BLAME THE OWNERS NOT THE BREED!!!

      • Your going to educate people?? LOL, I think a pit bull is probably smarter than you. Pit bull need to be banned. They were created to fight, and kill, not to be pets. It’s amazing how stupid people like you can be. Why would you believe that a breed that was selectively bred for hundreds of years to kill would make a good pet? These dogs were bred to fight to the death. Why are people so surprised when they attack, and don’t let go?? That’s what they were bred for. Nobody believes the hero dog stories. They are kind of pathetic. Fairy tails made up by selfish, ignorant, uneducated pit supporters. We need to protect the public, and our children from these animals that are clearly too dangerous to be pets. Anyone that would put the right to own a pit bull ahead of children’s right to live in a safe society is a real idiot.

      • Mr pitbull love. we are uncertain of the meaning and spelling of the word “fuc”…also did you intend the word “neabor hood”” to mean “neighborhood”? Another question…the Websters Dictionary defines the word “defercence” in a context which we believe you did not understand…did you mean to write “difference” We have little to say about…as you noted..we are simply astounded.

      • Its funny as hell that when an owner of these vicious dogs goes to defend them that they cant control themselves and make themselves look like the stereotype pitbull owner that they are. They can never disagree without calling names and talking down to the people who don’t share their view. They all talk about how ‘their’ dog plays and sleeps with their child. How it’s all in how you raise them. I could go on and on but we’ve all heard it before.
        They all want the world to believe they are each experts on the pitbull type dog just because they own one.
        But a logical person will read the pro-pibble diatribe and know something is wrong from the get go. I mean, some of their arguments almost could hold water, IF they didn’t start by calling someone an ignorant f uc k.
        Anyone who says it’s all in how you raise them, obviously hasn’t the first clue about genetic issues where dogs and breeding for various attributes are concerned. They obviously just have an opinion, not true knowledge to support their view yet do their best to spread their unwarranted opinions around trying to convince the world that their dog wouldn’t hurt a fly, while trying to believe it themselves.

      • One decent Gamebred dog, (assuming that’s what you have) doesn’t equate to science. Most pit bulls that attack only kill somebody once. It should be up to your neighbors if they want to live next to a killer or not, is their dogs are most likely going to be your dog’s first kill. Besides, dogs have killed the owners at 8, 10 & 15 years. You are rolling the dice, and if you are wrong one of your children could be shredded, all because you had to have a controversial dog. Your poor kids.

    • Sick breed of dogs, and their owners are sociopaths. I will trust any other breed of dog, and continue to avoid going near pit bulls, and their owners. Sick lot of low lives!

    • I would help any animal on the street or anywhere before I would a stranger. You cant trust strangers one bit usually. I have learned in all my50 years just about all animals you can trust. I dont care what anyone has to say on that. I have a handfull of friends that say the same thing and one is an English Professor the head English Professor at a University a CA State one too. She just rescued a Pity from our local shelter too.

      • You better hope a human is willing to help when you so foolishly trust PIT BULLS. After all, it’s usually the intervention of a STRANGER that SAVES peoples lives in attacks.

        Of all animals to trust, you and your friend sure made POOR CHOICE with the pit bull. The breed that kills it owners more often than all other dogs combined.

      • And we care about how your friend is an English Professor, why would we? Book smarts doesn’t mean common sense. Gail, you just go on and on, don’t you? Hope you don’t learn a lesson by having your “whole arm and face” destroyed by maulers due to putting them through into “Pits cages”.

    • Simply put, border collies do not herd sheep because they are raised on sheep farms; rather, they are raised on sheep farms because they herd. In addition pointers point, retrievers retrieve, and mastiffs guard, all because those traits are part of their breed expectations, meaning strong and continuous selection in the underlying breeding program ”

      Simply put Pit bulls do not attack because they are raised with dog fighters and drug dealers, dog fighters and drug dealers use pit bulls because they attack!

      It is their nature, their genetic truth and reality.!!

      It is not how you raise them rather it is simply what they are.!!

      Just like sled dogs run and pull, it is just their nature.!

      A pit bull type dog is what it is and does what it is.You can no more alter it genetic makeup then you can a collies to herd, a hounds to track, a retriever’s to retrieve, a labs to swim, a pointers to point, a sled dog to run and pull.

      They do what they are and a pit bull type dog is a mauling violent killer that has been bred to be a land shark, nothing you do can change that, even if you have them from birth.

      No matter if you love them, or how you nurture, train, rehabilitate, raise them optimally as normal dogs from birth, you can not change their Genetic reality to Kill, Maul, Maim, Disfigure, Dismember, cause Life Flights or trips to the Intensive Care Unit.

      For over 600 years the current pit bull type dog was brought into being through careful selective genetic breeding to create the most violent murderous fighting dog possible

      • You have some good points but don’t know it all like you think you do. Fighting dogs are not bred for biting people. Any people aggressive dogs are culled from fighting lines. I trust pitbulls from fighting lines but not others. Nor do I trust any dogs bred for protection. I do however agree that it is how they are bred and not how they are raised. My dogs love people but will not hesitate to kill cat or other dog. For this reason my dogs do not ever run loose.

      • Thank you for providing fact’s, and not opinions. Those who choose to blame owners, uneducated on animals, are the sole cause of people and animal maulinga and death, as my son is six feet under now! The liar’s behind pushing myths, and putting devil dogs in our homes, and neighborhood’s, caused my sons death. He didled horrifically by a puppy, raised by a couple in their 50’s…. Whom treated the animal as one of their own family members. They lived next door from the time I was pregnant and gave birth. They loved my son, nice down to earth people… Who were fooled by believing the bs on how they are raised. It sickens me to see how many people are still pushing this breed around and lie lie lie! I don’t care whom it upsets… The truth is what it is… My son is dead because of ignorant human being’s who believe pushing this crap around is a game. My son was the sweetest, loving child who had his whole life before him… Who would sit in the yard… On the bench under the tree… Waiting for his big brother to get off the bus everyday for two years… Who finally turned five…. To have his life taken 😥 he never got to ride that school bus. I don’t know how a single pit owner can live with themselves, daily… Knowing the pain they cause others for the pure sport of they can, their rights trumped my son’s, whom was 100% innocent. Mental help for pitty owners should be a must! Takes sick people to keep up the lies. Prayer’s to the sick xx rest in heaven baby boy xx God Bless You and the others whom are educated and want this to end. John Triton Harvard 3-23-09~ 4-6-14

  1. Ooo! I hope you do a post on the “pitbull pulls woman off train tracks” farce 😀 http://lillytheheropitbull.com/

    The woman was completely unharmed, but the dog lost a leg… if the dog was pulling the woman off the tracks, it would have been clear of the tracks before she was… as we see in dogs pulling incapacitated or fallen humans do so by grabbing the person with their mouth and pulling them backwards. It occurred in the middle of the night, far too fast for the conductor to reliably be able to discern in what direction the dog was pulling the woman.
    The order in which the dog’s injuries were sustained indicate it was struck from the front first; front paw sliced, front shoulder struck, and secondary fractures to the rear (pelvis). Could the dog have paused and stood to attention at the train to put it’s body in that position? Considering the woman was completely clear of the tracks with NO injuries whatsoever, the dog would have had to also been clear and re-approached the tracks to get into that position. Not likely.
    The woman was unconscious through it all–an alcoholic who had passed out for hours, on more than one occasion. Most likely she passed out clear of the train; the evidence for the dog having pulled her off the tracks just isn’t there. We do have a verifiable story of another pitbull pulling someone ONTO train tracks and resulting in a fatality… http://blog.dogsbite.org/2009/06/pit-bull-drags-adult-owner-into.html

  2. Some months ago, there was a story of a would-be rapist with a pit. When he tried to assault the woman, his dog turned on him and the woman could get away. Pit pushers call that dog a hero too… well it sure turned out well for the woman, but if there ever was an ‘accidental hero’, it was that dog. Do people really believe the dog understood the situation, knew what its owner was doing was morally wrong by human standards, and made an informed decision to attack its owner to stop him from doing wrong? Puuuuhleeaze! Dogs don’t have our moral standards of sex and rape, no doubt what really happened is the dog got set off by the fight between the man and the woman, and it got into the fray and latched on to whatever happened to be the closest limb. Yes I’m glad for the woman but it was more luck than any deliberate heroic action by the dog.

    • Hang on, did you just say that the dog is incapable of knowing right and wrong by human standards? Then how can the breed possiby be evil, as so many would have us believe. Oh, btw, look up golden retriever attacks, or Labrador attacks. Turns out they are just as vicious. Not to mention, many people can’t even accurately pick a pit bull out of a line-up of dogs.

      • LOL you nutters really are dumb aren’t you. “how can the breed be evil if they don’t understand human emotions?” Did you just say that??? I am not going to dignify that remark with an explanation. If you can t figure out why your statement is ludicrous I cant help you.

      • So you are saying with 28 people KILLED THIS YEAR, BY PITS. Thier own, owners didnt know they were pit bulls? Do you pit nutters know what a fricken joke you sickos are? Keep us loling, bc you are a joke.

    • Here’s an explanation, though I doubt the pit freaks will like it. It’s a known fact that many pit bulls would rather fight than mate. This is why the freaks invented the rape rack and even so still have duct tape always handy to tape the pit bulls’ maws shut while they have sex.

      So perhaps this pit bull was applying pit bull morality to the case. It saw its owner getting ready to force copulation on a woman and thought, “No, you dumb f*ck, that’s not what you’re supposed to do. This is what you’re supposed to do,” and began to give its owner a demonstration of proper pit bull morals.

      Upon which the woman had time to escape.

      Just a hypothesis. Dogs do sometimes get rattled when they see humans do things to each other that dogs would consider rude among themselves.

  3. I would like to hear more about that family (with pb in tow) that stopped on the road, got out of their vehicle and were attacked by a stray pb emerging from the woods.

  4. Hm, so according to this math… we have a tit-for-tat:
    Pit Bull haters and fear enthusiasts ENTIRE campaign is built on lies, false information and data that has been manipulated and slanted to fit their needs.

    Whats even more of a buzz kill (aka destroys even the most trace element of credibility) is not one single Pit Bull haters has even an hour of experience as a licensed DVM or Animal Behaviorist, an animal control officer, dog trainer or even dog walker.

    And they call Pit Bull owners nutters?

    Its like the town idiot running for mayor.

    • Here is what PHD’s in canine behavior and veterinary medicine have to say about pit bulls: http://www.thetruthaboutpitbulls.blogspot.com/2012/10/no-one-can-be-great-thinker-who-does.html

      RANDALL LOCKWOOD, PhD

      Randall Lockwood, who said he has witnessed the best and worst of pit bulls, said illegal dog-fighting is perpetuating dogs that are hazards to humans and other animals. Shaped by dog-fight enthusiasts, they are “a perversion of everything normal dogs should do. What they’ve created is a canine psychopath.”

      GRAEME SMITH, veterinarian
      My views about associating a breed with dangerous behaviours were challenged over time as I saw the impact of Pit Bull attacks. Talking to owners with dogs of this breed who have themselves been turned on, it became clear that these animals are unpredictable and when they attack they can cause serious injury or death.

      KATHERINE HOUPT, VMD, PhD, DACVB

      Says Katherine Houpt, director of the Animal Behavior Clinic at Cornell and author of Domestic Animal Behavior: “Different breeds have genetic predispositions to certain kinds of behavior, though that can be influenced by how they are raised. The pit bull is an innately aggressive breed, often owned by someone who wants an aggressive dog, so they’re going to encourage it.”
      “I have seen so many pit bulls taken by very nice, very dog-savvy people who did all the right things,” said Houpt. “They take them to socialization class, they take them to obedience school, they are fine for a few years, and then they kill the neighbor’s dog.”

    • Oh, so you have to be a licensed DVM, Animal Behaviorist, Animal Control Officer, dog trainer or walker to be able to discern that the fighting breeds of dogs are only doing what they were bred to do? As opposed to all you self-centered, tatted, meth heads that are so in love with the violent breeds you think THAT in itself is enough to be able to judge? Go back to your bong, or whatever it is you do full time.

      • And he knows this, how??? In the BSL crowd we have many people in those, and other related, careers.
        Not that it matters.
        Anyone with an eye (I say one because some pit victims have lost the other) thats not delusional can see this stuff for themselves. It doesn’t take a genius to see the death toll rising.

    • How do you know the qualifications of everyone who has an opinion contrary to yours?

      Also, THIS story is about the owner making up the story. So, it doesn’t require any experience with dogs. It requires qualifications pertaining to humans.

    • Simply put, border collies do not herd sheep because they are raised on sheep farms; rather, they are raised on sheep farms because they herd. In addition pointers point, retrievers retrieve, and mastiffs guard, all because those traits are part of their breed expectations, meaning strong and continuous selection in the underlying breeding program ”

      Simply put Pit bulls do not attack because they are raised with dog fighters and drug dealers, dog fighters and drug dealers use pit bulls because they attack!

      It is their nature, their genetic truth and reality.!!

      It is not how you raise them rather it is simply what they are.!!

      Just like sled dogs run and pull, it is just their nature.!

      A pit bull type dog is what it is and does what it is.You can no more alter it genetic makeup then you can a collies to herd, a hounds to track, a retriever’s to retrieve, a labs to swim, a pointers to point, a sled dog to run and pull.

    • It doesn’t take any training to look at the pictures of all the dogs that killed Americans last year and notice they mostly look like pit bulls.

  5. The Chef from Denver wrote,

    “Whats even more of a buzz kill (aka destroys even the most trace element of credibility) is not one single Pit Bull haters has even an hour of experience as a licensed DVM or Animal Behaviorist, an animal control officer, dog trainer or even dog walker. ”

    Most of the folks you call “haters” have had a few minutes of bloody pit bull experience. It was enough.

    I would rather be part of the decent folks who value safety and justice, than the deviant anti-social types walking around with fighting dogs and tattoos on on their necks.

  6. I’m a former dog behavior consultant with an MS in Zoology/Animal Behavior. I am only aware of a tiny handful of “hero dog” stories where the dog is a hero. Here are some cases that I would NOT count the dog as a hero:

    Dog barks during smoke/fire = Useful, but NOT a hero. Self-preservation.

    Dog attacks snake in yard near children = NOT a hero. Ordinary predatory instinct in action.

    Dog attacks a strange dog running into yard near children = NOT a hero. Just a dog that doesn’t like other dogs.

    Dog growls when “suspicious” person knocks on door = NOT a hero. Just a dog that is aggressive towards strangers.

    Leashed dog pulls owner out of path of train = NOT a hero. Just a dog that pulls on leash. For every dog that pulls its owner away from a train, there’s another dog that has pulled the owner INTO the path of a speeding train.

    Trained guide dog being leads blind person out of building during a disaster = NOT a hero. The dog is being directed and restrained by the owner, and is simply following directions that it follows every day of its life.

    Here’s a case I might count:

    Trained stockdog heads off bull heading towards trapped owner = possibly a hero, possibly just following instinct and training. It would depend on whether the dog would head off the same dangerous bull if the owner was outside the fence already and in no danger.

    And here’s the only one I know of that would definitely count:

    In a case at least 10 years ago, a large dog (Lab maybe?) woke up a human family member and led him outdoors during a house fire. The dog then returned about 5 times into the burning house to lead and/or drag out all the other (by now unconscious) family members. The dog broke through a screen door to do this, suffered third degree burns over its entire body, but still kept on returning and rescuing everybody. That dog is DEFINITELY a hero.

    • I had a dog protect me from a pit bull. The pit bull was about to attack and the other dog intercepted it. The dog that protected me lived next door to me. He was usually very friendly to other dogs (and other animals), but then none of the other dogs were attacking anyone. This was the only fight I ever saw him have. He was very friendly and, honestly, pretty lazy usually.

      However, this was not recently, so it wasn’t reported or discussed outside of a few people. While the dog’s actions were heroic to me, this doesn’t really mean that he needed the Congressional Medal of Honor. He fought a really mean dog that was known to cause trouble. This might be normal dog behavior.

  7. Love it! Nothing better than exposing these freak nutters and their fake “hero” pit bulls! You can sure tell if a commenter is pro or against just after reading half of their first sentence and they go on and on and on…… lmao

  8. Once again, a pit bull gets the short end of the stick. I have a pit mix myself. 4 years old, 150lbs, and she thinks she’s a chihuahua. Come over to my house, and be prepared to have her climb up into your lap & try to lick you to death. The early 20th century held the various breeds of pit bulls in high esteem. From Petey of Our Gang/The Little Rascals fame to Chief, the heroic pit bull who saved his owners from a cobra in The Philippines, at the cost of his own life. Though, he was still wagging his tail as he took his last breath. The damned media frenzy over the past years have been frantically trying to get attention through sensationalism. But, there is some truth to how rough a pit can be: they’re very powerful. And anyone who knows pit bulls will tell you: petting a pit is a full-contact sport. I know a yorkshire terrier that has drawn blood. Are you afraid of yorkies?

    • Actually, it’s the pit bull victims who get the short end of the stick. The pit bulls themselves are promoted shamlessly, while being overbred like crazy, so that about a million of them a year are put down at taxpayer expense.

      Why am I not surprised to see you regurgitate the old Petey myth – you do realize you’re talking about an old TV show, and not real life, right? Look up the real life petey and you’ll see things were not quite so rosey as portrayed.

      As far as your accusation of a media frenzy, that’s probabaly the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard all day. If anything, pit bull attacks are vastly under-reported. But, pit bulls do maim and kill more than twice as many americans as all other breeds combined. But animals have it much worse, as pit bulls torture and kill many innocent pets and farm animals every day.

      Are pit bulls “powerful”? Sure, they’re strong for their size – but there are much larger and more powerful breeds, which can and do easily kill attacking pit bulls in the line of duty. But unlike pit bulls, these magnificent guardian breeds don’t go around mauling and killing victims every day.

      And you want me to come see your pit bul? No thanks, I’ve seen and interacted with many. We realize pit bulls can act just like other dogs. But at the same time, I can tell you of many “sweet” family pit bulls that have suddenly and unexpectedly turned on and done what centuries of selective breeding gave them the drive and desire to do, with devastating results.

      I will never bring a pit into my house, because my little dogs don’t deserve to be subject to slaughter at some random, unpredictable point in time. We prefer safer breeds, like Irish Wolfhounds, Caucasian Shepherds, and English Mastiffs.

    • Well, I would reply but I fell out of my chair I was laughing so damned hard!!!
      “”””””The early 20th century held the various breeds of pit bulls in high esteem. From Petey of Our Gang/The Little Rascals fame to Chief, “”””””””
      SERIOUSLY??? “The early 20th century”????? “Various breeds of pit bulls”???? Oh PLEASE, DO TELL!!! which breeds would those be???
      “””””Though, he was still wagging his tail as he took his last breath.”””” LMFGDAO!!!! Really? I think I might laugh myself to death here……

      @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
      On to more serious comedy….

      FIRST you egest mantra # 7762219008765112 .. It is I believe from Chapter 1 page 12 of the “HANDBOOK OF PITBULLSHIT – A BEGINNERS GUIDE TO ESTABLISHING THE ALTERNATE REALITY” by Hogwash & Spin Bookmakers. LLC.
      “””150lbs, and she thinks she’s a chihuahua. climb up into your lap & try to lick you to death.””””
      Then you finish up with;
      “”””anyone who knows pit bulls will tell you: petting a pit is a full-contact sport. “”””””
      Soooooooooooooooo, how is that ‘lap climbing full contact licking sport’ thing going for ya??? What a picture……………..
      PUH _LEEEEEEEZE!! At least try to keep the ‘BS platitudes for pitbulls’ straight with in a single post. I know there are millions, but come on now…… THINK!!!

  9. What is it to you anyway if someone made up a story. Just cause one person lied does not mean everyone did . About hero stories of pit bulls so quit hatin. I. Bet any money you are a anglo person. Cause most of you judge what one person does to all. So get your shit strait hater

  10. Firstly, pit bull is not a breed. The breed is American Staffordshire Terrier. Secondly, they do not use this breed for fighting because they like to fight, but because they have a very strong desire to please their owners. Thirdly, I have four dogs and one of them is a 132 pound Amstaff mix that could easily kill all of my other dogs and my two cats, but he doesn’t because he is a big baby. They only time he has ever tried to bite or even growled at someone was when someone tried to come in my front door without knocking or permission. Even then all he did was make his presence known by growling and that was enough to make the would be intruder slam the door shut and run away quickly. I will admit that so called pit bulls (Amstaff) and mixes can be aggressive. However that is only when they have been mistreated or neglected or even trained to be so. Please get your facts straight before commenting on something you are clearly very clueless about.

  11. We have four pit bulls. I’ve never had such loving dogs that are so willing to please. It’s hard to have friends over because the dogs want to climb into their laps, lick their faces and drool all over their knees. If there is a dog that naturally loves people, a pit bull is it. I admit that they can be dog-aggressive. But that is the responsibility of the owner to control.

    • You know, every one of my friends and acquaintances who have suffered loss from pit bull attacks used to say the same things about their pit bulls. Dogs in general do naturally love people, but pit bulls are the most likely type of dog to maim or kill their owner, with zero warning. You “admit” they can be dog-aggressive, as if that’s a minor issue. But if you had any love for dogs, wouldn’t you be screaming bloody murder to stop the daily mauling and killing of innocent dogs by pit bulls? And that “dog aggression” (translation: wants to torture other dogs to death) is a horrific thing. The trite little phrase “dog aggressive” sounds so ordinary. You don’t think about the suffering of the victim dogs. Their screaming, their crying, as they try to run away, try to submit, all in vain, as there is no mercy from a pit bull. If they do manage to get up and run, the pit bull chases them down and resumes the torture. If they submit, the pit bull doesn’t speak dog, it merely disembowels the poor dog. And keep in mind, when someone tries to save their beloved animal companion from a pit bull mauling, the pit bulls often redirect their attack to the human. It happens fairly often Here is yet another such killing, from today’s news: http://www.newswest9.com/story/29467476/83-year-old-pecos-man-killed-in-dog-attack

    • My dog has been attacked twice, in less than two years, in two separate locations, by two separate Pit Bulls. Tell me that it is the owner’s responsibility to control their genetically inherited dog aggressive Pit Bull. C’mon. Tell me. The dog that attacked my dog first in April 2014 was previously dog friendly and I had pleasant interactions with his owner. He was absolutely stunned that his sweet Pit Bull had suddenly turned against every dog it saw. Then on August 14, 2015, I was walking my dog and my foster dog home after a walk around the block. My dog was recovering from back surgery. I got within two houses of mine when the neighbors new Pit Bull rushed across it’s yard, across the road and dove right at my dogs with no hesitation. My dog successfully parried that dog but it cost her her back surgery. My foster dog got a slight skinned mark of the side of her face where her eye is missing. My dog defended both herself and my foster dog until the owner rushed in to grab that hateful dog. They didn’t realize that dog had dog aggression issues as since it happened, they have been very careful to not have the dogs out in their yard. Try dealing with panic attacks after this last attack. Try being terrified of walking your dog past your neighbor’s house as that price of shit dog tries to break through the sliding glass door to attack my dog again if it sees us walk past. Try living in fear every day and taking a more dangerous route where I risk bro g hit by a car just because I want to avoid that house. I’ve had other experiences with other dogs running out to my dogs and none of them just dove into my dogs. They stopped to sniff each other first and then decide if the other was friendly or not. The Pits never hesitated..they never had what the normal dog greeting is. This breed should not exist. They were created for the sole purpose of fighting and killing and in this day and age, their job is done. There is no purpose for this breed to exist.period.
