    Seriously I live in a safe neighborhood like I feel asleep with my garage door open. I have got neighbors. I didn't grow up in a safe neighborhood what's so ever. But times were different then.

    My neighborhood is pretty safe (I live in the city), but a shitty area is right down the street and all trash comes from there. Feels like nowhere is safe anymore...

    The main problem with bsl started years ago and not with today's shitty owners, but with the humane organisations & animal charitiess that started and spread the original lies about the breed for money through the donations they received when they promoted their stories through the media. The publics and politicians misconception on the breed and subsequent laws all stem from these animal charities money grubbing ways.
    If asked outside I call my dogs everything but what they are, good job they have a variety of body shapes or I might get called a liar.

    One word that had wreaked havoc on forums...FACEBOOK. I love forums, I find them very knowledgeable and interesting. I've been on forums that entail everything from automotive interests to pet interests. Facebook is easier to access as most people are already on there anyway. There are a gazillion Facebook groups on our breed with TONS of "Facebook veterinarians" :-) to offer advise.

    Forums are much better then Facebook. IMO. On a forum ur talking to real owners that have probably experienced the issues u are going through. Not some Internet know it all. Weather it be cars, pets, anything. Forums are to help the people that are willing to learn

    I am from Russia, I honestly didn't even hear about the breed until I came here and didn't hear about the stigma until fairly recently. I'm sure I've seen tons of pitbulls but had no idea what they are and wasn't scared of them. In my city there is a big problem with BYBs- my neighbors across the street have 3 untrained unfixed pitbulls, one just had puppies. Two of them have gotten out and tried to attack my pup, whom my bf was walking. Another one ran up to a woman with a kid, and I honestly freaked out cause I thought I was gonna witness something terrible cause the dog was jumping and running around them. My bf grabbed the dog and dragged it to the house by the collar, they didnt say anything and just took the dog in. There are like 20 people in a house, 3 dogs and puppies. I don't know about the media, but I do know that there are irresponsible shitbags living right across and more down the street.

    The sad thing for the breed is the humaniacs led stories through the media have made the breed very attractive to many of the wrong types of people, who then want, get and breed these dogs for all the wrong reasons.

    Completely agree. Nowadays every thug in a picture and every crappy rap album has to have meanest looking pitbulls on it. The media doesn't mention millions of other pitbulls that don't maul anyone. I live in Milwaukee, we had over 200 homicides just last year. How many pitbull attacks did we have? None that I heard of. Yet these people are not banned.

    Glad you are ok bro. Gotta ask though, wtf are you charged? Is it a state thing or something? I wonder if it's because you stabbed his tire?

    Either way, glad you and the dog are good.

    PS: I hate a fawking thief, they are the scum of the earth.

    I feel the same way. I've ad my house broken into twice. My dog at the time hiding under the bed when I got home. I didn't care about my stuff was just glad they didn't hurt her. The second time they ran out my front door as I came in the side. They got nothing. It was Christmas night all our stuff was bagged up in our gift bags and left behind. I would have loved to have caught them. My dog now would be happy to meet them and would love to go for a walk when they leave. Sorry for the off topic rant got lost in the story for a sec.

    It was awhile ago but I will never forget it. Yea it's cuz I stabbed his tire, even though all my pocket knives are legal carrying size. The guy got freaked out and said I could of stabbed him. Luckily enough the cops believed my story becuse the guy lived no where no the area. I just had to do some community service. It worked out though I met a lot of cool people through community service. And the cop and myself became friends cuz he also has a "pit bull".

    Wow, Steve, I don't think you should have gotten charged with a misdemeanor either. Blue is so forunate to have you.

    Derek, your pup was so smart to hide under the bed. They always show dogs on home cameras in the Phoenix area while their home is being broken into. They just stand there, scared, watching the people run through their homes. Then the people leave them out in front of the house on the street.

    That's what I worry about I can get new stuff. Just don't hurt or take my dog. Rocco would be happy to go for a walk with anyone.

    Most dogs , even breeds that are bred to be agressive won't do much and most will quit when the pressure is put on them.Only advantage most are afraid of dogs and dont know ^^^^ what I just said.
