Default There Are No Bad Dogs Only Bad Owners?

Last week my grandma's dog was attacked by a pitbull. It pissed me off right then and there, but then I learned more only to get more pissed. It was the dog's third attack on another dog. It led me to look up some statistics on dog attacks by breed, and what I found was pretty much what I expected. Pitbulls are responsible for way more attacks than any other breed.

Stats on attacks from 1982-2012

http://www.dogsbite.org/dog-bite-sta...tt-clifton.php

Dog attacks from 2006-2008

http://www.dogsbite.org/dogsbite-new...lity-study.php

I've done some googling and people say this dogbite website is shitty and is trying to push an agenda against pitbulls, and they also say their sources and statistics are bad.

Don't really know why I made this thread, there isn't really a question I guess, or anything to debate except is it the dog or the owner? Sorry for wasting your time :3

I would never own or approach a pitbull. I think they are an aggressive breed of dog no matter how theyre raised. My aunt owned a pitbull that was a complete saint her entire life, until one day she snapped and almost killed their other dog all because my dog was in the stall next to them (they had a barn with horse stalls and kept the dogs in there while they were out of the house)

while the aggressiveness may be the same in a lot of dogs, few fight to kill like pitbulls do when they get going

Pitbulls scare the shit out of me, and I have never had a bad experience with a dog. They just give me a bad vibe.

Damn, my cousin has a pure bred pit bull and it's possibly the sweetest dog I've ever met. My buddy also has a pit bull and it acts like an adorable little puppy even though it's been an adult dog for a while. I love pit bulls and always wanted one

same.

i think it all depends on how they're trained. pitbulls should go through obedience training for sure. my boy has a pitbull that never barks unless on command and it's such a loving dog. i'd love to own one

pitts are gross


it's foolish to say they are all mean/dangerous but certainly they are all capable of being dangerous


my dog doesn't like other dogs, we just cross the street when we see one coming

Pitbulls are not one breed of dog. Just an FYI.

Also, I'm part of the 'it's more the owner, not the dog' team.


EDIT: Also, I read somewhere German Shepherds were actually responsible for the most dog attacks but I don't exactly remember where I got that 'fact' from or any specifics to it.
