I totally agree that uncaring owners can and do make any dog aggressive, due to abuse, neglect or even teaching a dog to be aggressive. I have a Pit Bull and two Rottweilers, naturally my pets will protect me against harm but are very lovable and gentle with my family and friendly when introduced to visitors.

I have been attacked by a pitbull that was trained to attack the dog came out of the home and attacked me from behind I had 6 bite marks on my bicep and the owner of the dog said I was provoking the dog how can someone do that when my back was turned...This was not the first attack ...I made the mistake by believing the owner of this dog had its shots NOT it never had its shots it was inpounded for 10 days the owner got the dog back after paying fees and getting it shots but the damage was done now I live in worry about my health...I owner 3 dogs and had dogs all my life now I even treat my dogs different then I have before...WHY DO PEOPLE GET THERE DOGS BACK WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO ATTACK...
