I get it, they're both pit mixes, pits have a bad rep, whatever. But someone actually told me today (while he was yelling at my dogs for barking.. Lol they're dogs..) that one day they're gonna bust out of their (seven foot tall) fence and kill a dog or child. Lol. My dogs have never hurt a thing. They're both afraid of my friends chihuahua and will let children ride them like ponies. I wish people would get over this whole "pit bulls are killers" things.. Look at those faces though, aren't they vicious (;

    I read a statistic that people sustained more bites from Golden Retrievers than any other breed. Although part of that statistic is the large population of golden retrievers, but point is....people need to shut up.

    Such a sweet couple of babies! There is nothing I hate than people assuming that...its like the whole guns kill people stance. No, the guns aren't the things doing the killing, its the person holding it. Same thing applies to a Pitt (or any dog!)

    Pit bulls have a bad reputation, but your dogs look very friendly and cute!

    My mom had a Rottweiler that was the sweetest dog ever. People were afraid of him all the time. One time he barked at some kids that were throwing rocks at him and they called the cops. The cop that came had been at our house before for a different reason and just laughed because he knew our dog wouldn't hurt anyone.

    And yet, people think my lab is harmless...she isn't. Our life revolves around keeping her from any and all other animals other than our second dog because she will kill it. No one suspects a thing until she freaks.

    It's awful that Pitt bulls have gotten such a bad reputation. I'm sorry your neighbor is a douchenozzle, and hasn't even tried to get to know your dogs. They look like sweeties!

    Any dog can have a bad disposition. a pitt is no more likely to bite than any other breed. it's how they are raised and, frankly, lack of training. they're used a means to appear 'badass', like a lifted truck to compensate for something. because of their strength and jaw power they happen to be the breed abused for dog fighting.

    a chihuahua is more inclined to bite you than most pitts.

    I have an english bulldog and I frequently get asked (with side eye) if he's a pit. People are dumb.

    @ally. What is so funny about that too is that their jaws are no stronger than any other breeds

    Ha. Look at those snarling faces! I was attacked by my aunts yellow lab. That dog had issues! I'm house sitting for my dads huge Alaskan malamute. It's crazy how people are afraid of that dog just because of its size! I think you should growl at him.....jerk.

    I think it's ridiculous that people feel like they can say whatever they feel like to a pit owner. I took my boy to the vet and we were waiting outside for our turn (small town vet so there are no appts...you just show up and wait). The lady next to us had a small dog that was jumping everywhere, barking & growling, and trying to go over to mine. My pitty got up to go sniff it and the lady freaked out and yelled at me that I need to keep my pit on a tighter leash. I'm normally pretty calm, but I said "No, you need to keep your dog on a tighter leash. If you're so worried about space, why the f did you come sit down next to us? Don't tell me how to control my dog because as soon as I gave him his command to lay and stay that is exactly what he has done."
