    Yeah, the color is called "brindle". Mako showed up four years ago as a puppy, and we adopted Daisy Duke last year from the shelter. We thought It'd be cute to stick to the same color scheme. We call them the Leopard Dogs. Daisy had been at the shelter a year, and since she's a brindle pit (not likely to be adopted) we had to scoop her up before she was put down. She is the sweetest, most submissive lover.... :)

    Thanks everyone for your complete honesty, this is not a
    Debate, it's just voicing your opinion on the topic.

    We have a Daisy dog! Except she is Miss Daisy. She was a stray that my neighbor claimed. She kept wandering over to our place and we would drive her back. We did that for a week or so and he said we should keep her. Thus we were "driving Miss Daisy" She is a rottweiler mix.

    The pitbulls that get busted for agression are usually the ones who were trained to be agressive. Bad dogs are the result of bad owners

    Heres my pitbull mix, Kona

    At my uncles house

    Me and her being wierd(shes smiling )

    She's the smartest dog I know!

    You always see on animal planet how they bust people in the big citys and stuff for pit bull fighting. I agree that its the owners fault because they trained the dog to fight. I hear pit bulls have this thing where if they bite something they jaw locks up. I feel bad. They are misunderstood. In Florida I think it is, they banned Pits out of the state completely and if they catch you with one and you are fighting them the DOGS (mostly the aggressive ones) get euthenized. Its sad.

    How about we start something called the "Small Dog Owners Need To Teach Their Dogs Manners" movement, please?
    I've seen more aggressive small dogs (think poodles, Shi-Tzus.. I have no idea how to spell that..etc.) than big dogs. The owners don't do any training because they can just force the dog around.
    My Rottie is very well trained - but she HAS to be. Any mishaps from her (being an "attack dog" breed) may lead to her being put down, which I couldn't stand, so Rich and I had to lay down a solid foundation on her.
    I still stand firmly on my view that it's not the dog that's the problem, it's the owner.
    HAVING SAID THAT, there are "bad seeds." I believe that animals, just like humans, can be "wired" strangely, and they can be not right in the head. Those dogs can be dangerous... but it can happen just as easily to a Pittbull as with a Lab.
    I personally have heard of more dog bites from "gentle" breeds than "aggressive" breeds.

    It's in their blood to be vicious at some stage. But they just seem to be more vicious than other dogs. They should all be on a leash when out and they shouldn't be able to escape from anywhere. Same goes for all dogs...

    Agreed! And can we teach children how to address strange dogs and not to provoke them? I HATE that parents let kids run up screaming to a strange dog and get in it's face and even if the dog tries to retreat the kid just keeps on and on until the dog finally snaps...I understand kids don't always udnerstand it,, but the parents need to teach them that not all dogs want to be petted and they should ASK to pet a dog before doing and pay attention to their kids. Can we make a leash law for them? LOL

    When I was growing up, Mom didn't let me pet a strangers dog without asking or being offered first. I wasn't allowed to trespass to see a puppy and I wasn't allowed to wake up our own dogs.She told me to think about what I was doing to the dog and ask myself "would YOU want your sister to do that to you? Well, the dog doesn't want it either, so when they try to go away, let them" Or "how would you feel if someone dumped dirt on top of your head? (or whatever dumb thing a kid would do to an animal)" .
