i'd invite that kid over for Saturday dinner if I were closer... good for him!!!

and... @fuzzynavol ... are you baiting for reason's only known to you?..... again?.... 

there is no reason to believe, just by nature of lineage and bloodline, breeding or species, that a Pit Bull is violent by nature.  except that they were bred for fighting in a pit against other pit bulls, and were (before watering down through interbreeding) far and above the most efficient fighting dogs ever bred- no other breed held a candle to them.  but those days are mostly past, except for those who are attempting to keep those bloodlines pure and retain the pitbull terrier as such: a dog for fighting exclusively.  

lay off the pitbulls, @fuzzynavol .   it's nurture not nature.

My guess is he thinks folks who defend pit bulls are conservative and this shows them to be wrong.

Or something.

I'm pretty sure everyone here understands that pitties can be aggressive.

Fuzz, statistically speaking, which dog bites humans more frequently? Hint, it’s not the Pitbull.

I have a female red nose and she’s never bitten anyone. Even when they deserved it. It’s not the breed but how they are raised. My next dog will be a blue male Staffordshire Terrier.

The dogs I'm most careful around are the dang Chiwawas.  They can be nasty little brutes.

dang chihuahua... we should finish that wall.... soon... of course if the irish setter is reelected, we may have a bunch of pampered poodles breeding with malamutes eliminating the problem altogether, but.... as you know poodles are less loyal than hounds... and all hounds do when they sit on a thorn is howl... pitbulls, though unpopular, get shit done. they bite at each other, it's true, and they even bite at their owners and their owners neighbors- but if you take care of a pitbull? they'll take care of you- keeping the wolves at bay and being all around goof balls. sheepdogs, another herding dog, along with the only use for pitbulls outside the pit (pig herding) are where it's at, and my kind of people er uh dog... 

by the way... between the catahoula leopard dog and the pit bull, both are the choice for herding pigs.... wanna know the difference between herding pigs and herding anything else?  instead of chasing pigs, the game is to piss them off by biting them and then running like hell- and in a predetermined direction.... to pen, in other words.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

I once dog sat a pit bull over a weekend.  I was cautious at first because he had muscles on muscles.  He was one of the best dogs I've ever been around (and yes, this is one data point, an anecdote).  Quite a few folks around these parts have part pit bulls for whatever reason.  I always ask if I can say hello, and they all welcome some petting and attention.

The wife and I would love to have a dog but our schedule is not very conducive for it, so we don't.  So I pet every dog I come across is allowed.  Often they get on the elevator with me.  I've gotten to know a lot of dogs in the building, some folks have 60+ pound dogs, which isn't what I'd choose for a high rise.

We're off to the local market in a bit, we'll see a ton of dogs there.  There is a French guy who bakes bread in Macon and drives up here for the market once a week.  He often sells out, and he brings a lot of bread.  He tells me he's quite tired on the drive home.

We were at a crowded festival in downtown Franklin years ago with some friends and I hear the father of the other family take a scolding tone with my daughter that I'd never heard (our daughters were best friends, as were our sons).  He shouted her name again and I looked over and she had her face in the muzzle of an oversized, spike-collared Pitbull.  The owner of the dog was not your typical festival-goer, he was covered in tats, long beard, leather, wrap-around shades, the works (typical Democrat).  The dog turned out to be sweet.  

That same daughter now babysits for a neighborhood family that has the same kind of (scary but sweet) Pitbull (probably a mix - it must weigh 80lbs.).  She's a little afraid of it, but it sits next to her on the sofa with his head in her lap the whole time she's there.  

There are lots of people who have had sweet pit bulls that have "snapped" unexpectedly - I'd never have one.  Figures that Ragey does.

Just before the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville, my college girlfriend got booted from her little apartment in Fort Sanders, so she moved into an old duplex in south Knoxville.   As I as helping her move, I met Sheeba, a Boxer-Pit mix that looked like she took steroids and hung out in the Tennessee weight room.   Sheeba ran around off-leash, and while she never gave a second look at my girlfriend, she would not let me out of my car.   

For several weeks this was a problem.   I either had to sneak into my GF's place so as not to be detected by Sheeba, or I had to get my GF to escort me.   It was a little humiliating.   

One evening we were watching TV when we heard the rumble of thunder.  Sheeba had been chained up such that she could not quite reach my GF's door.   I walked outside and heard Sheeba whining.   She was scared of the thunder.  I retrieved the box of dog biscuits that I had bought for just such an opportunity, and sat just at the outer perimeter of her chain.   I dropped a biscuit in front of her.   Then I got braved and inched closer, and hand fed her.   Before long she was in my lap, munching on biscuits, and snuggling up to me.  I stayed with her a while to comfort her from the thunder.  From that moment she and I were best buds.
