why do people that aren't educated think that pits are all violant and pick on the whole breed and not that individual dog itself? I know it all has to do on how they are raised because my pit she is 2 1/2 now and she is the sweetest little thing. she will act as though she is going to bite someone's head off when someone knocks at the door but when the door opens she jumps on them and says pet me...lol. i think it is stupid for thing like this. if i were to pick on a breed i would say chihuahas are the state of bad breeds, but i am not since it all has to do with the owner. can someone explain this ignorance to me?

This was a good article = http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2863/are-pit-bulls-really-all-that-dangerous
I get what you are saying, it really is on the owners. I think a large part of the problem is that people specifically buy pits because they think they are vicious and "bad-ass." Not only do they not likely not know how to train them, but they also encourage such behavior.

Most likely because when PBs do attack, they are more likely to inflict greater damage. Personally, I do not trust any dog that I do not know- Yes, I was badly bitten (from behind) by a German Shepard-
