Even those dogs who have been "bred to fight" need to be abused, often beaten and starved, to MAKE them fight. Dogs don't make bad dogs, PEOPLE make bad dogs.
I work at a pet supply store, and since the ban went through in Ontario I've fitted dozens of pitties for muzzles (that they now MUST wear when in public
) A stranger, right in their faces, with an awful looking contraption, and I've never had a single one even raise a lip at me. The only thing a muzzle stops these dogs from doing is giving kisses
I've only been bitten by one dog at work. A shih tzu.
I think a lot of people would change their views once they've MET one. A lot of people hold these opinions that Pit Bulls are killers, time bombs, etc. without even having met any, simply because the media latches on to them and makes them seem bad. I fully believe that one should form their OWN opinions of things, instead of just blindly following.
