Pitbulls have a reputation for being dangerous, but is this really the case? According to statistics,
Pitbullattacks are more likely to cause injury and death than those from other breeds. However, it is important to note that these dogs are not a single breed, but rather a type of dog that includes four breeds, most of which are members of the terrier group. In the early 20th century, Pitbulls were even called “nanny dogs” due to their loyal and kind nature towards humans, particularly children. Unfortunately, Pitbulls have been given a bad name due to their use in illegal dogfighting networks and their tendency to be bred to be bigger and stronger than usual.
This has led to several highly publicized and appalling attacks that have resulted in a total ban on these and other similar dogs in some areas. It is important to note that Pitbulls from the right family are not aggressive. Poor or inadequate training on the part of the dog owner can also lead to attacks. When the American Pitbull Terrier arrived in this country, it became a versatile working dog, cattle herder, hunting companion and family protector.
Statistics show that Pitbulls are 2.5 times more likely to bite in multiple anatomical locations than other breeds. They are responsible for 60% of all injuries and 63% of eye injuries, and have higher morbidity rates, higher hospital charges, and a higher risk of death than attacks from other breeds. It is important to remember that all breeds of dogs can attack if they are not trained properly or if they feel threatened. Pitbulls aren't people who stop acting like they're suffering from discrimination; it's offensive to real human victims of discrimination.
It is up to the owner to ensure that their dog is properly trained and socialized so that it does not become aggressive or dangerous.
