Dear DogsBite.org,
What a great site. Here in California, there was another deadly pit bull attack and a two-year-old boy is dead. I am sick of the cover-up regarding this breed. I am tired of hearing all the excuses for why pits are not to be blamed. You do an excellent and important job, and it is time we stood up to fanatics who continue to defend this breed.
I am a dog lover. I have always owned dogs, and understand how much they become a member of the family. That said, children are more important than a breed of dog. The pro-pit bull campaign has been effective, so much so that non-pit owners do not speak out, fearful that the will appear bigoted. They also believe the ridiculous “nanny dog” rhetoric. The lack of sensitivity towards victims is often stunning.
Your site is an oasis of sanity, and I am grateful it exists. Please, keep doing this important work so that eventually common sense wins out and legislation is enacted to protect our children, adults and pets from predatory dogs. Deepest thanks and appreciation, – Renee, California

My story:
One year ago I had a family move in next door to mine with what appeared to me to be some sort of Pit Bull mix. The dog was a female about 80 lbs. and just over one year old. I voiced concern with the owner, as I have a wife, 4 year-old boy, and infant daughter. After all, we shared common areas, the same fence dividing our property in the back, a car port, and our doors were roughly 5 feet apart in a town home association. I was assured that the animal had no Pit Bull blood and was friendly with children. However, I had been advised by a good friend that the breed was nothing to take lightly, pure bred or not, so I started to search the Internet. When I found your site, I couldn’t believe the back log of devastation the pit bull breed… [Read full letter]
