i'm not a dog man so I don't know. But what I do know is that they sure can do a lot of damage and they have the strength to kill, that's all I know, and I don't want one!

It's NOT how they're raised. Terriers and similar breeds have a strong drive to kill ~ and he jaw strength to do it.

I think dogs have good temperaments. But dominant breeds need owners to train them well. Our pit bulls are so lovable, calm, easy going & sociable. I think it's how dogs are raised & owners are the ones need to take responsibility of any breed dog.

Each dog has it's own temperament, but the biggest factor in an animals temperament is how it's raised.
