    Pit bulls are misunderstood, by pit owners.

    If you think that pits are like other dogs, think again. All North American dog fighters choose only pits because good ones are hsppy snd excited when they attack and they will kill for no reason.

    All dogs can bite but normal non-bully dogs bite to make the other leave. They ley go so the other can leave, and live.

    You can’t hope that your pit will feel like fighting over a rawhide when you travel to a distant dog fight. Good pits attack simply because they see, smell or hear their victim.

    While not all pits mature to become good mauling mutants, all good pits do.

    Good pits grow up to feel the drive to seek and destroy dogs and be happy while doing so. Normal dogs are angry or defending a resource when they bite. If the other submits the fight ends, and the weak loser limps away alive.

    Good pits will attack even far from home, with no resource in sight. Good pits will walk up wagging, then without a sound, bite and not let go. “Kill or die trying” was gbr pit bull motto given by their sadistic breeders.
    Good beagles hunt rabbits and are happy when doing so.
    Good pits hunt and kill dogs and are happy when doing so.
    Is there any trait worse than unprovoked dog aggression, from a dog large enough to kill all other size dogs,to kill adult neighbors too?
    Pits are victims as well of these mutations. Stop making more victims.

    Let pits become extinct via mandatory spay neuter of all pits, pit mixes, all dog aggressive dogs.

    The pit’s primary opponent is another dog. But since they were so mutated to wantonly kill their own kind, (normal healthy social animals need a reason to attack) no other species is safe when instinct to attack meets opportunity to reach the victim.

    The beagle escapes and races through the neighborhood, barking all the while, on the trail of a terrified bunny. These are instinctive beagle behaviors.

    No one asks, “did the owners abuse that poor beagle pup?” This attack was pure “good” pit seek and destroy behavior.

    He was happy and friendly immediately before attacking and would probably return to be happy soon after. And, if given a chance, he will attack again. And he will become a better mauler/attacker, with practice.

    You think breed doesn’t matter? Tell that to the sociopathic pit breeders, the same ones who created the break stick, that breed specific too used to pry open the pits locked jaws. It is not for any other breed.
