I would like you to leave your opinion on pit bulls below. I am currently doing a project on pit bulls that includes the thoughts of the public, not just my biased opinion. Thank you for the help. Also, please leave any facts that you think are reliable. I will also do other reasearch of course, but I want the opinions of people besides those from "Fully equipped, informed websites". Thanks again!

i don't think pit bulls are a bad breed, they just have a negative reputation. i've been around several pitbulls in my lifetime and i wasn't scared because they were pit bull, i was scared because they were huge, lol!!!!! any dog can be dangerous and intimidating, it just dpends on the dog.

it seems that a lot of people don't like pit bulls because there "vicious" and are always attacking people.. it's not the breed, it's really how you raise it. if it's raised to fight and be mean, the  that's what it's gunna do.. several pit bulls that I know are very friendly because they were treated right

I never had a very good impression from pit bulls. Down the street there are a few pit bulls, and they don't seem very friendly. Their owners have no control over them whatsoever. Not to say that there aren't sweet and nice pit bulls, it's not their fault they are stereotyped all the time. So, in conclusion, the personality of a pit bull has a wide range, like humans.

The problem with society is that they believe that they are bad animals. All kinds of animals were born with being vicious. They are just seen as bad because they have a lot of strenght.

My cousin has a black-and-white pit bull named Max.  I love him!!  I can't be around him often because I'm allergic to dogs, but he's a big puppy who loves attention.  He's never been aggressive and is just the cutest thing ever.  They also have a newborn daughter, and Max is great around her too.  From my experience, pits are just a misunderstood breed.

to add to wht WriterHead was saying, it is not jus the dog but the owner and trainer and how they treat their pit as a puppy and throughout its entire life.... my older "sister" has a Pit and tht beautiful baby is 200 lb boy and he was abused for the first 3 years of his life by his pervious owners (he was a fight dog tht had been left to die in a ditch) but Yeo (pronounced Yay-o) has bitten me once.
reason y: i was lovin on him then i stopped to grab my drink and he nipped my chin, crawled into my lap and began lickin me 2 death until i began kissin his head and rubbin his belly and tht is my Pit story

In the beginning of this thread Hambo, said all animals are born vicous therefore pit bulls are vicous.I would like to disagree. Animals are not vicous, they have instincts; the stereotypical pit bull is vicous stay away they will attack and hurt you, not true, pits are used on dog fighting because they are quick have stong muscles and are very smart. A pit bull at a young age is taught to fight over a chicken as food with another dog, the hungrier and stronger and quicker dog wins. This helps the pit bull that is being breed for fighting to learn how to take down another pit bull or any other dog. The point being that the animal is using its instincts to survive, isnt that what well wanna do? Survive? So when a lion goes and kills a heard of zebras, to feed its young its just for survival, not to be cruel, but to survive, to live.

They are often times raised to be vicious because they are strong as all hell. But I used to walk a pitbull. He was the sweetest but he was basically one big muscle. He was SOOOOOO strong. That's why they're taught to be vicious. But if they're taught to be nice and raisedwith love, then it's no problem.

I personally don't like pitbulls, they can be very nice and loving but sometimes they turn on you, our friend had their's turned on her, and she raised him very well and treated it very well, and the dog was so loving, but it turned against her, you have to be careful:)
