Don't blame these dogs blame the owners. Obviously if a dog was created to fight, there are going to be more of them out there with these problems. I have owned a pit bull for over 8 years now and he is the sweetest thing on Earth. The only way he could harm you is with his tongue and he try's to kiss you to death. Please do not take out anger on the dogs when humanity in the first place is the cause.

100% owners fault. I wish a full recovery for the both of them from this tragic attack. Hopefully he hired a great attorney. & To the vicious dog owner (doesn't matter which breed), I hope you're ready to pay those medical bills. You're one sorry excuse of a dog owner.

i blame both the dogs and the owner.the lady was in over her head, after all its only a matter of time before the DNA rears its ugly head. i have no sympathy for the offending dogs, my sympathy goes to the human victim and his dog. i bet if you asked the lady owner 5 minutes before the attack if her dogs were mean she'd say something like, "oh they're sweethearts, they wouldn't hurt a fly" you never know when those breeds will snap. or maybe better to say, you never know when they will realize that they're at the top of the food chain, no matter who's in the room.

hope he and his dog make a full recovery, and the offenders put down.

There is no other solution for these animals, but to put them down. When they lose their control, and attack a man and his dog then they can never be trusted again.

I have a pit and she is now 17 years old... and not one time has she bitten ANYONE or even ANOTHER dog (a jack russell) that was attacking her in those 17 years... its the owner not the breed... the fact of the matter is that more people are bitten by other "cute dog breeds" that people think of... example = chiwawa's bite more people by 1000 to 1 compared to pit bulls... the reason pit bulls are "so dangerous" to the general public eye is because they are highly publicized when a bite happens (and yes when it does happen there is generally damage)... I'm so tired of people blaming the dog and not the owner... when a child runs a muck in a store are these same people blaming the child?? no they blame the parent(s) as it should be... and same as it should be for the dog owners!! one of my best friends is a mail carrier and he will attest as well its the owner over the breed.

I do unfortunately agree.. they do need to be put down... but had they been properly raised this would not likely have happened.

I used to say "blame the owner" with regards to pits..My oldest son rescued a red nose years ago..he passed away last year from cancer and I have to say he was one of the best dogs you could ever ask for..calm, cool, loyal...very loving. Last year after his dogs death, he bought another pit (a bluenose) puppy and he a little over a year old now, unfortunately, he is not a nice dog :( my son has had a hard time socializing him and he shows his teeth and growls at everybody and every animal..my son loves this dog but cannot take him anywhere, nor can he have other dogs come to his house..it's terrible..but now I can no longer say "blame the owner" because my son has tried everything to socialize his dog..neutered, even tried doggy prozac..had a professional trainer work with him etc....ugh I think it's a crapshoot with these dogs, you just don't know..he got lucky on his first pit, but not his second one.

@plj46 she doesn't have to raise them to be aggressive but it could be from neglect. EXAMPLE: if a parent doesn't ever teach their kid to be a bully, yet they neglect the child and do not properly raise them, then the parent is at fault when that child becomes a bully. Same thing for the dogs. I have seen people who neglect any breed of dog including labs and in the situation, the dogs can lash out. My own personal friend is an owner to two pit bulls (the are amazing dogs) and he was bitten viciously by a labrador just when he walked by.

I had 1. Best dog I ever had. I've had LOTS of dogs. They must be socialized. It was funny watching other dogs smell me when my dog wasn't with me. Some dogs would literally run because they were scared. But when you live out in the country you can't have a pussy dog. When I had a huge lab, the coyotes had no fear of coming in the yard. When I had the pit. No coyotes, bobcats. Call me a fucking redneck. But they have their place.
