  • I don't think they are by nature. They are powerful dogs and people often train them to be aggressive.

  • Any breed has the potential to be vicious! It is all in how they are raised!

  • It's because of all the media! When other breeds attack people you rarely hear about, but if they even THINK it remotely LOOKS like a pit bull you hear ALL about it!!! It's stupid!

  • Only if not raised right, I've worked with many and owners are the problem if there is one

  • I've been in a cage with 7 pit bull puppies, their father, their mother, and another female. They were all sweet and loving. It's all how an animal is raised- a Labrador can be viscous if raised to be.

  • I don't think that a pit bull is any more vicious than any other dog if they are raised with love, BUT if they snap (and all dogs *could* snap) they have the ability to cause major damage because of their jaw strength.
