I can't open the link, but any dog can get aggressive. Pitbulls are just well known to be trained for agression. Every pitbull I have met is quite nice.

Any dog can attack, but some are capable of doing more damage than others. There was a woman in the US recently who was attacked by pitbulls. She's lost limbs. I think she's still alive. Mom who lost arms after pit bull attack won’t be able to get prosthetics: sister

This story is not unique. What would be useful is a study that corrects instances of attacks by breed for popularity. One area of my city has tons of pitbulls. I don't blame them; if I lived there, I'd want one too.

I've been attacked several times by dogs over my lifetime; my one almost-attack was, in fact, my neighbors' pitbull behind my back. My cat stood her ground & sent him packing while I was catching on.

Most people aren't honest with themselves about the kind of dog they're suited to raise. I know. I just went through the process. It's sobering to realize most of canine kind is beyond your skill and/ or personality. If more people were honest, there would be fewer such instances. But I don't think it helps to minimize the responsibility of owning certain breeds of dog.

I don't think this was meant to go down the path of whether or not pitbulls are aggressive. It was supposed to be a tongue in cheek way of showing off a funny/sweet video of her baby :heart: So perhaps if it is a discussion you guys want to have, another thread might be more appropriate so @Catherine89 can show off her dog without feeling ganged up on?

Does your pit like to swim? My girl loved swimming in the tank. No matter the weather.
