I believe you are wrong. True little dogs get away with biting.. but they don't do the damage that larger dogs do. You find very little in the news about German Shepherd Dogs attacking people (except when used by law enforcement). Glockman is correct. Dogs are still animals, just like cats are, and we humans have turned them into pets. They still have their natural instincts to hunt and kill. People have a tendency to place a dogs value above human value. I'll admit that some human low life's do rank below that of a dog, as a whole that way of thinking is wrong.

Yes, those are fatal attacks, not attacks or bites. Most dog bites go unreported or misreported. Of course, I am not saying that Pitbulls can not be dangerous, but it's not a breed trait. Any dog can bite and should be treated that way. The most dangerous dog that I have ever worked with was a St. Bernard. He was a very nasty dog. BTW my working dog is a Malinois

Exactly. I go by that same simple policy too just like you.

I would second the walking stick. I on several occasions entered an impound yard to retrieve something from an impounded vehicle, when the owner could not be contacted. There were usually two "yard dogs" and they wanted nothing to do with a fast swung baton.

Windsor, Virginia. Rural area about an hour west of Norfolk and Virginia Beach. My back yard basically. I heard the run go out on my scanner.

Dogs are bred to bring out specific characteristics that were inherent in their wolf ancestry... it might be speed (greyhounds), sense of smell (hounds/labs), hunting & tracking...etc.
Pitbulls, Rottweilers, American Bulldogs, etc. were specifically bred to highlight the wolf's ferociousness and fighting abilities.
Can dogs of these breeds be 'redeemed'? Absolutely.
But it generally takes a lot of knowledge and skill to do so in a way that the dog can be fully trusted.
It's wise to treat these breeds with a lot of caution and common sense.
