Wow! If you've been bitten at least four different times, then maybe YOU are the problem, not the dogs.
Yeah, you must be one mean mo fo...
sorry--my son was bit by a cocker spaniel and my husband was attacked by a cat and contracted cat scratch fever. I agree, treat all animals equally...
Ted Nugent would like a word with your husband.
Time for a reality check. Cocker spaniels, cats and dachshunds don't KILL PEOPLE! Check this out: http://www.dogsbite.org/dog-bite-statistics-fatalities-2011.php
Together, pit bulls (22) and rottweilers (4), the number two lethal dog breed, accounted for 84% of all fatal attacks in 2011. In the 7-year period from 2005 to 2011, this same combination accounted for 73% (156) of the total recorded deaths (213).
Yes, pit bulls deserve to be treated differently!!
As the late Lewis Grizzard said "That dog will bite you!!"
Then you are lucky it wasn't a pit that bit mauled you. Check the statistics on the CDC website. Pit bulls kill more people than all other breeds combined. Sure, all dogs can bite, but when a pit does, the chances of extreme injury and death are much, much greater. I say ban the breed and let thugs and rednecks find some other way to compensate for their lack of self worth and poor self image.
My girlfriend bit me... Should she be required to wear a muzzle?
Lulu, you crack me up! And I agree with Jacob. The problem with pit bulls is it usually isn't "just a bite". They usually cause extensive damage, maul and/or kill when they attack. It isn't comparible to a chihuaha or most other dogs, who usually bite and move on.
The Chow has the most powerful bite in the canine family.
and the pit kills more people than all other breeds combined, so your statement adds even more credence to snuffing these four legged time bombs.
