Every year, Pit Bull Terriers are responsible for the death of 3 people.


40 children a year drown in 5 gallon water pails. In your lifetime, you are almost 14 times more likely to drown in a 5 gallon water pail then be killed by a Pit Bull.


Pit Bulls were known as the number 1 family dog in the 20th century. But the very same qualities that make this breed such a wonderful pet are also valued by those who use them as fighting dogs, training them in brutal methods, some even going as far as to sew bottle caps under the dogs skin to ensure they're in constant pain, to make them more aggresive.


150 people a year are killed by falling coconuts, making you 50 times more likely to be killed by a palm tree then by a Pit Bull.


Pit Bull puppies, ones that have never fought before, are often killed because their parents were fighters.


<center>Since when did it become guilty?</center>


  According to the American Canine Temperament Testing Association, 82.5% of the American Pit Bull Terriers that took the temperament test passed, compared to a 77% passing rate for all breeds on average. In the test, a dog is placed in a series of confrontational situations. The first sign of aggression or panic is a failure of the test. Pit Bulls have achieved the fourth highest passing rate of all 122 breeds tested.


It is more then half a million times more likely that a human will kill a Pit Bull, then the other way around.


For every Pit Bull that kills, there are 10.5 million that don't.


Most Pit Bulls are killed by their owners because they REFUSE TO FIGHT in dogfights.


So millions of Pit Bulls are being blamed for the actions of .94% of the breed.


Copy and repost this if you think the banning/killing of Pit Bulls is wrong.
I got this from :iconsydneyrose35:

I love Pit Bulls. :iconpitbullplz: I want to become an activist for them. They don't deserve to die. They most CERTAINLY don't deserve to be in dog fights, either. They're capable of love and compassion. You just need to give them a chance.

I get yelled at by students for several reasons at school. For liking Queen, for not being like the majority of students, and for loving Pit Bulls.

One day, I want to be able to say 'I love Freddie Mercury' without being made fun of. I want to wear my leopard print jacket and mini skirt without being laughed at. I want to be able to hug a Pit Bull without being yanked away from it, and having to listen to a lecture from people, that Pit Bulls are dangerous.

Pit Bulls aren't vicious if you give them a chance. Just reach out to the Pit Bulls. They need you.

"Show me what it's like,
To be the last one standing!
And teach me wrong from right,
And I'll show you what I can be!
And say it for me,
Say it to me,
And I'll leave this life behind me!
Say it if it's worth savin' me!
Hurry, I'm fallin'!"

We have 3 dogs. 2 chihuahuas and a rescued pitbull rotwiller mix.(we found her in a thorn bush near our house all cut up because of the thorns and her last owner and fully grown) and I will tell you right now if you go near the pit/rot mix she will put her paws on your shoulder, knock you to the floor, and lie down on you, and begin to lick your face clean off your head. if you run up to the chihuahuas they will try to eat your leg off. its is the funniest damn thing to see this huge bad ass, scar-face looking dog getting her ass handed to ger by this scrawny chihuahua puppy. absalutly hilarious.

:\ not all pits that are fought stay mean either. My bestfriend adopted a pit that found it's way into his garage. Poor thing was nearly skinned. They put him back together as best they could and I have to say he is the sweetest dog I've ever seen. When ever I go to visit the big guy likes to sleep in between my friend an I.

I mean, at first he was a little aggressive. He killed their Australian Shepherd and a couple of cats when they annoyed him. But he was properly dealt with. He hasn't killed another animal since those first couple of months and even cuddles with kittens and smaller dogs.

Honestly even with his not so good past he's just a giant teddy bear.

He did...We think he might have lost a fight and/or got thrown out of a car, cause they found him in their garage and his skin was barely hanging on.

They pretty much glued him back together to keep him from dying.

keeping in mind that they are bred to be killers ._. I don't know what to think about them really....I know from experience (working in a human shelter full of pitbulls) they can turn on you in an instant no matter how careful or kind you are to them. I dunno... ._.

well think about this its ok to be hesitant but when a pitbull is trained to be mean it doesnt make it different any dog can be bad its not the breed its the training so theyre strong so what doesnt mean theyll kill you pitbulls bite humans less than golden retrievers so pitbulls are harmless training is lethal

i aggree love them always and forever and ive noticed even the pits that are tortured their entire life like that still dont bite the owner if he has to reach in their and seperate, plus if youve ever watched animal cops, a number of the dogs come up to the investigators and lick their hand or remain completely humnan friendly.

i agree one hundred percent. pitbulls are called mean because people bred them to have strong spirits and even stronger jaws. what most people dont realize is that ANY dog will attack if they are mistreated long enough, they just happen to have a little more force.
If you want to blame anyone for pitbull violence, BLAME THE OWNERS.
People are so judgemental of pitbulls, as i have learned from experience, that they will go so far as to murder an innocent pupy (see my gallery, i have a pic of this puppy, chata, there). if people would only see that they are the problem...

this is so true
my aunts dog was put to sleep...she got done with surgery for eating one of her toys. A few days later she was in the back yard alone (the yard was fenced) and some retarded teenagers threw rocks at her...
she got out and bit one of the kids. the kid didnt get in trouble...but they kill the dog.
acts like these (animal cruelty) make me hate society. i hate every one, they say "hate the people that fight dogs ...not everybody!" it makes me so mad.

if i killed some one.....is it ok to hate every girl with black curly hair??or every cheyanne in the world...?
no. but for dogs..yes.

I'm sorry about your dog, dear. And, if you ask me, that kid sort of deserved it. You don't throw rocks at a dog, and not expect it to do something. The kid shoulda gotten in trouble for doing that. The dog was just reacting.

People are stupid, though, and they don't realize what wonderful animals pit bulls are. "It's in their blood, to be bad, vicious animals," they say. Not true. Sure, their parents might have been fighters, but that doesn't mean they are, or they want to. With a good owner, some love and affection, and proper care, these dogs can be as good as any.

Pits (Am.Staff's, Bulls, StaffyBulls, APBT) are the best & most intelligent pets, competitive sport dogs & family dogs one could hope for. Unfortunately, they are mercilessly maimed for human entertainment and profit. They are stereotyped in such a horrible way.
Pit bull puppies especially are the sweetest and most loving pups you'll ever find, licking you from head to toe and curling up at your feet for a belly scratch.
I've seen hundreds of bullies euthanized at the SPCA I worked at for something as simple as even barking during a temperament test. I've seen them euthanized for destructive furniture chewing. I've seen them euthanized for being weary of men. I've seen dogs euthanized because they are merely mixed with a Pit Bull.
They are not rehabilitated because they are expendable. When one dies in the shelter, another takes its place. This ultimate cruelty happens at the hands of those placed in the position to care for all animals, and do their best by them.
Believe me, they do not care.
You are not rescuing a dog from bad owners by adopting
it at the SPCA, you're rescuing it FROM the SPCA.


There are no bad breeds, only bad owners.

Thank you for posting this. :hug: The world needs to open its eyes. German Shepherds and Cocker Spaniels are responsible for more dog bites per year than are Pit Bulls.
