I used to own a pure bread red nose pittball(like the one in that pic), and i must say it was the most placide thing i have ever know. People have got to bring there dogs up right and not hype em' up and stuff. The only thing this dog really hated was other male dogs, and since we owned him from a puppy we took good care of him and did all the right thing's so that he wasnt an angry dog when he grew up.

90 percent of the time the owner is at fault for how to dog acts when it's older(well maybe not 90% but its alot) and the other bit of percentage is because of there nature which u can't change :(

Still there a great dog and I would loved to own one again.

Upbringing has alot to do with it.

Sadly, alot of the people that own these dogs are usually clueless bogans who train the dog in protecting their VK Commodore, which in turn makes them very aggressive against others.

^ yeah i agree, the owners tend to make them more aggressive. I too have have known a few over the years and they seem placid. but i think its sad when a dog has to be put down if owner leaves it off leash or it has escaped from yard ect.
a little boy was attacked 3 days ago here in Sydney and just today an elderly guy was attacked by 2.not to mention the "normal" attacks every month or so around Australia. i think it might becoming to a head and something might have to be done?
It will be intresting to say least.

Pit bulls to be banned, says Carr
May 03, 2005
From: AAP
PIT bull dogs and three other breeds will be banned under new laws to be introduced in New South Wales, Premier Bob Carr said today.

The move comes after five-year-old Sydney boy Jordan Wisby was last week seriously injured by a pit bull when he was walking home from school in Illawong, in Sydney's south.
A 75-year-old man is also recovering in hospital after being attacked by two pit bulls at Homebush in western Sydney yesterday.

Mr Carr said laws would be introduced later this year to ban the sale, acquisition, breeding or giving away of pit bull terriers, American pit bulls, Japanese tosas, Argentinian fighting dogs and Brazilian fighting dogs. The five breeds are already prohibited from import in Australia and owners must be over 18 and keep the dogs in secure enclosures. While current owners will be able to keep their animals, the new laws will lead to the dogs effectively being bred out of existence, Mr Carr said. He said the community wanted the State Government to rid the streets of dangerous breeds of dogs. "Over the years, we have seen pit bulls or pit bull crosses cause death and destruction across NSW," Mr Carr said in a statement. "It is clear the one way to minimise the risk of dog attacks is to ban these restrictive breeds." Mr Carr says local councils will have the power to ban the ownership of restricted dogs except where owners obtain an approval from the council. The Government will work with local councils, vets and scientists on ways to identify dangerous cross breeds to look at future

Sorry, but I don't believe you at all. I've seen dog owners try arguing their dog's a calm blue ocean after watching it mawl a 7 year old.

My dog was never around young kids so i don't really know. In any other case it was a placid dog that would never get hyped up for anything, it would just sit there and be cool, even when it came to guarding the house ect, it would never attack.

But when it comes to 7 year old kids its a diffrent storey. I spose you will never fix that because dogs have a sense when they know they have it over someone, and in this case a helpless little kid quickly becomes scared. so the dog attacks becuase its an easy target.

Yob, They probbaly also have Lockjaw.

as the name suggests they can 'lock' their jaw into place.

Pulling the tail, or 'shoving your fingers up theyre bum' actually do work. lol.

I think my dog has lockjaw (Staffordshire Bullterrier - Best dogs ever)

Pitbulls should be bred out, They're not a natural breed of dog and were consciously breed to be fighting dogs. They are almost uncontrollable when it comes to behavious and they can click at nearly anything, the best thing that can happen for these poor animals is to be bred out.
