I'm heavily involved in dog rescue. I've been working with "bully" breeds for years. When I see a potentially dangerous animal potentially going home with the wrong family I put a stop to it. Pits and mixes need a very particular set of circumstances to thrive.

One other thing. According to the linked site they were involved in 29 fatalities last year. That sounds like a lot (and it's 29 too many) but considering that several thousands of them are adopted yearly it isn't a fair presentation.

Historically speaking, where did pitbulls came from and what was their purpose ?

[–] the_hidden_metric 0 points 18 points (+18|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Literally bred for fighting bulls in pits. They were created by breeding bulldogs and terriers and were selected for traits that made them suitable for blood sports like bull-bating and bear-baiting.

[–] Rellik88 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

They are a mix old Old English Bulldog, and Terrier. They are an American breed bred for GAMENESS, and animal aggressiveness. Not human aggressiveness. Game breed dog have a high drive to win. They where breed for dog fighting and bull baiting. Both professional sports in the 1700's. Pits that where human aggressive where put down, and are against the breed standard.

[–] Professor_de_la_Paz 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

They're originally bred from English bull dogs, which were used to bite tethered bulls for entertainment. They're actually a group of breeds, mostly Staffordshire Terriers, American Pit Bull Terriers, American Bullies, and American Staffordshire Terriers.

Id use that number for the gun grabbing nut jobs.. seems like pitbulls killed more people then ar15s in school shootings??? Am i write or wrong

Your evidence is horseshit. You cite a website whose sole purpose is to argue against pit bulls. Of course, they're going to present their data in the most prejudicial light they can. Yeah, let's cite the Daily Stormer for "statistics" about black people and crime.

Regardless, the numbers presented give zero context or proportion to the nationwide dog population. They say 29 dog bite fatalities involved pit bulls, but they say nothing about the total number of pit bulls owned. If you want to judge how potentially violent a breed is, you need to look at the population as a whole.

A quick Google search says there are an estimated 3 to 5 million pit bulls in the US. Going with the low number, 29 fatal dog bites involving pit bulls comes out to 0.00096% of the total pit bull population. Or you could say that, if you own a pit bull, you have a 0.00096% chance of being fatally attacked.

Do you know what your odds of being involved in a car crash are? About 1.3%, or around 1350 times greater than being killed by your pit bull. Are you going to argue for eliminating all cars from the road now?

Let's look at another breed on that same website: the giant schnauzer. I couldn't find any data or estimates about current numbers, so lets make an educated guess. Wikipedia says that in 2012, 94 new giant schnauzers were registered, down from 95 in 2011. Let's assume 95 dogs were registered every year from 2011 to 2018. That's eight years or 760 total dogs. Your website says one fatal dog attack involved a giant schnauzer, which would be 0.13% of that total estimated population. Your odds of being killed by your giant schnauzer are 135 times greater than the odds for a pit bull. Who wants to argue that giant schnauzers are a menace to society?

Confirmation bias is a real thing. You wanted something to support your prejudice, and you found it. Congratulations.

The daily stormer is far more legitimate than that site

[–] Laurentius_the_pyro 1 points 5 points (+6|-1) ago  (edited ago)

As far as I know the dailystormer at least tries to represent reality, unlike that fail of a anti-pitbull site.

Seriously they're presenting 29 annual fatal bites out of millions of pitbulls as some shockingly high number.

Niggers in Chicago kill more in a weekend than pitbulls do over the entire USA all year round. Chicago niggers kill 750+ a year.

In fact Chicago has a population under 3 million, even if it was 100% black (it's not) niggers are at least 25 times more deadly than pitbulls.

Hey buddy your fucking up the circle jerk. Kudos

You're*

[–] Laurentius_the_pyro 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago  (edited ago)

15x more people die from falling out of their beds while sleeping than die to pit bull bites, clearly it's time to ban assault beds.

Also more people are shot in a weekend in Chicago than pitbulls kill over an entire year nation wide.

People like that faggot OP are afraid of their own shadow. He is no different than a liberal screaming at the NRA.

[–] oldzeke 8 points 24 points (+32|-8) ago  (edited ago)

Pitbulls are the blacks of the dog community. Not all blacks will rip your face off either.

One of the smartest things I ever did was tell my girlfriend to get her collie out of the dog park as I saw a fat white lady approaching with a pitbull she couldn't possibly control. We get outside the fence and turn around to watch the pitbull destroying someone's poodle.

You can have nice communities or you can have pitbulls. You can't have both.

[–] TheAmerican [S] 8 points 7 points (+15|-8) ago 

There is this tiny black girl that walks two massive pitbulls in my neighborhood. There's no way in hell she can control those dogs. I have a little Boston Terrier and every time I see her I beat feet. It's fucking ridiculous.

[–] undertheshills 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

I always have a gun. I cant wait to kill some shit bags dog

[–] Rellik88 8 points 9 points (+17|-8) ago 

Now I know why you hate Pits. You like little yappy shit dogs. Hope your little boston will stop a robbery.

Lol you own a toy handbag dog for trashy white girls that is the product of selective inbreeding. Enjoy the vet bills for its inevitable breathing problems it will face.

[–] daskapitalist 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

This is a good point: no one should own a dog they cant control if it attacks someone.

Are you tiny or a hamplanet? Get a Pomeranian. Can you pick a pitbull up and bodyslam it if it goes ham? Then you can own a pitbull...but that means you need to be there 100% of the time, or that only similarly swole people get to come over.

Dogs only attack weak bitches.

[–] GumbyTM 1 points 11 points (+12|-1) ago 

OP declares opinion as fact and calls those who disagree idiots.

Then pretends to actually want to have a 'discussion'.

Welcome to the DNC faggot.

[–] alphasnail 2 points 10 points (+12|-2) ago 

Pits have to be dominated or they'll try to dominate the owner. Once they are under control they'll grow loyal if you feed them and care for their needs, mostly just food though. Also, dont be abusive to them. If they're mishandled they may form a festering anger issue.

Anyway, I've had a pit before and this model of raising a powerful dog works well.

[–] daskapitalist 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Good point. If a dog understands that every human is higher up the food chain, you wont have aggression issues. Pitbulls are more aggressive and physically stronger than most other breeds, so you really need an owner who's fit enough to flip one on its back into a canine submission if it gets out of line.

[–] [deleted] 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago

[–] alphasnail 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

Absolutely. That's just how dogs are. Dominating them doesn't mean they have to be harmed or anything. Just asserting enough force to show you're not a pushover and will always challenge them when they atrempt to dominate is usually enough to be their pack leader.

[–] a_fucking_dude 7 points 9 points (+16|-7) ago 

When 1% of dogs are involved in 80% of maulings....

[–] IGiveZeroFucks 3 points -1 points (+2|-3) ago 

Nigger dog dindu nuffin. That toddler was a racist biggot and deserved to have its face ripped off.

[–] Laurentius_the_pyro 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago  (edited ago)

You stupid fucking retards actual believe MSM 'statistics'.

'pitbulls' cause fucking 29 fatal bitings a year, 400 people die from falling out of bed in the same period of time.

This is a non-issue.

#banAssaultBeds.

[–] everlastingphelps 8 points 7 points (+15|-8) ago 

The same people who ignore these statistics are the ones that ignore the crime statistics by race.

[–] Laurentius_the_pyro 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

Or you could actually look at the statistics and you'd see pitbulls are a non-issue.

Seriously people are getting bent out of shape over 29 yearly fatalities (US wide), when Chicago has more fatal shootings by Negros in a weekend.
