I'm gonna rant for a minute here and I'm sorry ... but, when I was watching the news this morning the news reporter says how this dog attacked a lady and the reporter states it's a bulldog and possible pit bull mix ..... okay who cares if it's a pit bull any dog can attack anyone .. Lacie is part pit bull and she is the biggest sweetheart. It's all about how you raise the dog. The world needs to stop categorizing dogs in this way! Okay my rant is done.
Kianna MacPherson - It's the owners of the dog that raise them to be aggressive it's not the dog. They are just like people today if you were brought up in a violent and unloving atmosphere most likely you will turn out to be violent. I hate that people blame it on the breed.
Maurissa Wyman - Seriously ... makes people look at my dog differently who is well behaved
Jennifer Lepkowski - Ridiculous. Just like a child, it's ALL in how you raise what you are caring for.
Scott M Beckwith - It's fucked up that the only attacks that specify breed are ones including Bully Breeds. I have two perfect pits at my house. Blame the deed not the breed
Michaela Shufelt - AGREED! No one hears of aggressive chihuahuas on the news but those little things can be mean too! I hate that's it's all about the pits, they can be the sweetest dogs
Emilee Melanson - Leah Barnes I'm pretty sure Evo is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met
Maurissa Wyman - Lacie wouldn't hurt a single person and you know tb
Emilee Melanson - She might lick you to death
Maurissa Wyman - Hey a puppy shower won't kill you
