The facts can not be ignored:
Less than 2% of all dog attacks are from Pit Bulls. Pyscho is right. The media just blows things way out of proportion and focuses in on Pits alone, even if the dog is not a Pit, they will sometimes call it a Pit.
Yes there is a big problem with irresponsible people getting their hands on Pits for the wrong purposes. Its not the Pits fault that they are highly desired for illegal purposes such as illegal dog fighting, drug running & irresponsible people who want to mimic their hip hop idols when they have no clue what it takes to raise a dog properly. The reason they are desired is because Pits are one of the easiest dogs to train, they want to satisfy their owner with all their heart and they have a better tempermant than most dogs which allows them to be manipulated for the wrong purposes where as a majority of other dogs will not be manipulated as easy.
Did you ever notice how many Pits are used for TV shows, commercials, movies and magazine ads? There are more Pits used in this type of stuff than any other dog because they are so easy to deal with and have a very good temperment and again are very easily trained due to their eager need to satisfy their masters. They are also being used more and more by the military, police agencies and rescue groups across the country.
Pits score higher on obedience tests then 95% of other dogs, they have even scored the highest in some years. This is just a fact.
