Pit bulls have been demonized by the news media looking for a headline. Michael Vick's pits were trained for fighting. Out of 48 dogs that he had- only one had to be euthanized. The others have been rehomed. I was fearful of them until I started volunteering at an animal shelter. I discovered that they are friendly and playful. One of them-Chance- was selected to be trained for law enforcement. If you google you will see the info on pitties being trained for law enforcement. As always any dog needs a responsible human owner.

It is not the dogs, it`s the owner`s of the dogs at fault for not knowing how to look after and train there pet`s. I have a rottweiler and he is more
obedient than most chrildren i can take him anywhere, and he does`nt need a lead on, he walk`s at my side and stay`s there. Give me a dog any day.
