    The reason for the insurance issues on these breeds has nothing to do with how friendly they are vs other breeds, it has to do with the "if." If a Pit bites, it doesn't let go, if a German Shephard bites same thing...if a chihuahua bites (I'm a vet tech of 15 years in a high Pit area, I've been bit by many chihuahua and no Pits) it's annoying, not fatal. I would never own a pit with my daughter because I do not trust her, but I personally would have one if it were just me. People who say things against certain breeds are not educated in the breeds or had a really scary experience with them. My husband is afraid of labs because he was bit by one as a child. The key is education for both the skeptics and for the supporters on why the skeptics are skeptics.

It was long after the breed had been in the US that some fools decided to get the fighting temperment back into them. Of course this wasn't acceptable to the Staffie Registry so the dog became known as the American PitBull.
    Hm, that is very interesting!

    Anyway, although I am no fan of either... I saw this this morning on the web, and thought of all of you :)

    Love those pictures, looks like my BF's brothers dog, so happy!

    His dogs are registered as Staffy's actually as in Ontario, Pitbulls have restrictions. Our dog I grew up with was a Pitbull/Black Lab... We told people he was a Boxer/Black Lab
