    Yet again idiots getting shit wronf…the dogs were not running lose they were in the house when police arrived on scene one dog was shot but not fataly and the door was open at the time and the dogs ran out of house AFTER THE FACT so stop reporting LIES

  2. How do you know this Vincent? Were you there? If so, why didn’t you do anything to protect the little boy? Pit bulls are very dangerous animals and do not belong in a civilized society.

    • “Knock Knock”
      “Whose there?”
      “Why are you here?”
      “We are taking you to jail. Your lion mauled a person. ”
      “Oh that’s not a Lion that’s my pitbull.”
      “Oh we apologize. Here’s a ten dollar fine. Have a good day.”

  3. When there’s bull in the breed, it carries bad seed and wasn’t bred to be a pet.

    • I agree American Bulldog is just another “brand” of pit bull, but not all dogs with “bull” in the name are dangerous. French bulldogs are sweet tempered toy dogs. I’m not sure they have any bulldog or mastiff in them – they may descend from Pekinese. And English bulldogs are too short and heavy to be used for fighting.

    Notice how they are afraid of the pit nutters calling them “american bulldogs” there is no such thing, they are pit bulls! And yes they Are dangerous and should be heavily restricted

    • The American Bulldog has more jowls than the Staffordshire type pit bull. Not so good for fighting because of the excess skin that can be easily ripped. But they are popular because people view them as “cute” as opposed to fighting pit bulls that are not particularly attractive. Bulldogs come in more colors, especially the spotted coat that people seem to prefer. More people use them as guard dogs and body guards, but they carry the same genetics and are dangerous too.

  5. Tony Solesky says:

    American Bull dogs are Pit Bulls these are not the little English bull dogs. You will always here the Pit bull advocates say Pit bull is not a breed well you are correct it is a type of breed like saying pick up truck is a type of truck and GM is the model. American bull dogs are one of the breeds of Pit bulls covered in areas that have bans. These are dangerous animals not normally bred domestic dogs. That is why this keeps happening with these kooks that think it is all the owner. It is all the breed and Ironically the type that would own them would be irresponsible by associtation.
