Pit bulls "can be" dangerous just like any human can
(Why Vancouver Canada)
Thanks for the interesting article about the same question that has been in the back of my mind...are pit bulls dangerous? and up until now I really didn't have a firm answer and the answer is yes they can be and no they aren't...
Commonsense (which isn't always common) would dictate that it isn't the dog but it IS the breeding and treatment of the dog as well as how it is trained.
I do believe that this powerful dog can be dangerous in some situations for the above reasons but at the same time I also suspect that the media including motion pictures have perhaps given this good looking dog a very bad rap!
If the pit bull is from a dog rescue center then, there might be more risk of having a over-aggressive dog but the same is true of a poodle from the same rescue center! I think that I'd rather get a dog from a pit bull breeder who has a VERY good reputation and also provides a proven bloodline of the dog.
My reason for getting a dog from a breeder vs. a pit bull rescue is that since this is a big and strong dog, I'd want to get the most stable family dog possible who'd be not only the family pet but also the protector of everyone and our home too.
I'd also want to take the dog (and myself) to a good pit bull training course or school so that we both get used to each other and establish that I'm the "Alpha" (boss!) and so the dog also understands that too.
Thanks for the great information I'll be back and follow this site for sure!
