Why do we not better regulate dangerous dog breeds?

Like with people EmmmieG, there is no such thing as a "dangerous breed." Each dog is different. Breed specific legislation is cruel, ignorant and a waste of resources. A "dangerous dog" should be defined as a dog that bites.

BTW, yes, I have a pit bull. Pit bulls are born loving all people. Fact. Assholes turn them into killing machines. I say we punish the assholes, not the dogs.

As a former owner of an American pit bull terrier, who volunteers at a rescue shelter for pits, I fully concur.

I have to agree with you there. My cousin has a Pit-Dalmatian mix and two relatively young kids. I am of the thought it's all about how raise and treat the dog.

This is a great for real feelgood story about jumping in and doing the right thing, and saving a young boy from possibly being killed. I like stories like this because it reminds me there are still people in the world that give a shit.

I've had three. All smart, sweet, loyal, beautiful dogs. My favorite dogs.

All dogs have the instinct chase their prey. That can't be bred out. It can be controlled thru training. All dogs have the instinct to protect their territory and pack. This cannot be bred out. It can be controlled thru training. All the training in the world will not make a dog, not a dog.

The question is not why are these dogs allowed, it's why weren't they secured behind a fence or a on a leash.

Kudos to the JROTC Cadet and her parents for allowing her to be in JROTC. People don't realize how much of a benefit JROTC training is to high school students, both boys and girls.

Not every school offers JROTC, I think it's short-sighted.

This is one girl who won't be bullied or victimized. She won't even be a target.

Dalmatians are crazy.

Well, I knew one Dalmatian that was crazy. And the breed tends to have deafness and kidney problems.

Dalmatians are high energy dogs -that also have been inbred to the extreme.

If you have a lot of time to train the dog and you like to run marathons, a Dalmatian might be the dog for you.

Pitts, Dobes, Rotts and other working breeds need experienced owner/handlers. They need real work to do, obedience, agility or other sport training. I really wouldn't recommend one for the first-time dog owner with a family--unless you KNOW you will have the time to go to the training center and learn how to work your dog. Sometimes, I think its not that they are dangerous, per se. They are intelligent and bred to work. If the owner does not direct that energy, the dog will be left to it's instincts.

So many become aggressive because the owner doesn't devote the the time and learn how to work their dog. The dog is caged or "disciplined" incorrectly-resulting in a psycho dog. Raising a dog is a lot like raising a child.
