Be honest...are you afraid of Pit Bulls?

If so, would you mind explaining why? Most of the reasons people are scared are because of myths!

  • Not at all! I'm not afraid of any dog... even mean ones. I believe that Pit Bulls are too powerful to be trained to be mean. JMO. I used to breed APBTs and I've never been bitten by one. I've been bitten by a Lab, a Yorkie, and a Shih Tzu.... but I won't base the whole breed on those individual dogs. Like people.... every person is different no matter the race... every dog is different no matter the breed.

  • Yep, terrified, it's going to sound stupid but one chased me when I was a small child and ever since then I've been terrified of all types of dog, and I know that you cannot judge on appearances but their looks don't exactly endear them to me. *pathetic* haha.

  • No, Should I be?
    Pit bulls are not bad dogs. It is the owner/trainer that is bad.
    Pit bulls are nice dogs
    Just like any other dog

  • Yes im afraid of them. But im afraid of almost every dog. Have seen too much happened when a dog attacks a child ect. Its all over the news, all the time. So i stay aways from them. You can not trust a dog. Much less a dog with an owner who doesnt have any kind of feeling for responsibility.

    Not saying every dog is dangerous. But I dont trust them, at all. Its just my personal opinion.
