    I think owning an animal large and powerful enough to kill a human carries with it some responsibility.
    If you apply that to all breeds, that's fine. Even a chihuahua can kill an infant, and it is far more aggressive than most large breeds.

    my in-laws have a chihuahua that all the grandkids call "bites" because she is so aggressive towards everyone
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    I. Hate. Chihuahuas. If you want a toy breed, get a damned pug. They're cuter, not such inbred little bastards, and won't freaking bite and yip and snap at everything.

    I don't hate chihuahuas but they are a difficult breed. If you're lucky enough to get one that's not a nipper, he's sure to be a yapper.

    Pugs are great! But only if you can deal with their stubborness and their food obsession. Be prepared to secure your garbage can. :-)

    My pugs have always been wonderful animals, and my current pug's stubbornness manifests itself in his inability to accept that my laptop, and not his body, belongs on my lap.

    The only way you'll get him off your lap is if you pile some kibble on the floor....and even then...

    I love pugs. I was gonna get one but them my Chow mix found me.

    Why especially a Pit Bull?

    You think it is a worse circumstance if it is a Pit Bull as opposed to another type of dog?

    And by the way you need to check your stats becausew Pit Bulls do not attack people more than all other breeds. Quite the opposite in fact.

    like dogs never bark for any other reason
    After something like this people make stuff up to make the story sound good. It happens all the time.

    Yes I sure beleive her that her kids, a 13 yer old, was scared of a dog they had never seen. How did they know it was a pit bull, if they did?
