[QUOTE=radcen;1064676573]Yes, and why is that? They are more popular with the irresponsible crowd because they have been bred to be more trainable to be aggressive and more apt to do what the irresponsible people want them to do. Irresponsible people choose this type of dog for a reason. There are bigger dogs. There are stronger dogs. This dog has the 'right' qualities combined to do what they want.[/QUOTE
I think it is because these dogs look mean, and certain people want a dog that looks mean. But the dogs do have the muscular make up to be dangerous when they do attack. I don't know if they are bred to be more aggressive. You may be right.
