Why Pit Bulls should NOT be Banned?

  • by
Pit Bull

For most people, they would describe the Pit Bull as a vicious breed, that is why it is banned in Canada, Denmark, Poland, and the United States. This breed is restricted in more than 937 cities in the US.

The Pit bull or the Pittie descended from bulldogs and terriers. Because of their strong appearance, people found a way to exploit their behaviors and tendencies for dog fights, and as a result, they became a symbol of violence, drug culture and gangs. The stigma that marks Pit bulls has also contributed to their rise in U.S. shelters. One in four of all animals brought into shelters are Pit bulls, and their average euthanasia rate hovers at 93 percent across the board.

Why Pitties should not be banned?

Pit Bulls aren’t born to fight.

Pitties are not born to rip other dogs nor human beings just like what other people think of them do. They are being trained to fight by humans who are wanting to make an “entertainment” out of them or to have profit from them. These dogs are often labeled as monsters when it is the doing of the heinous creature that owns them.

Pit Bulls aren’t naturally violent, aggressive and mean.

Pit bulls are not inherently dangerous. Like any other dogs, they can become violent, aggressive and mean through lack of training, abuse, neglect and irresponsible ownership and breeding as well as a lack of attention to health and temperament issues. Aggressive dogs aren’t born that way. Mean dogs frequently aren’t properly socialized as puppies. They also likely have been abused or starved well into adulthood. People choose Pit Bulls for dog-fighting simply because they’re a strong and large breed – not because they’re monsters.

Are Pit Bulls Safe?

Pit bulls are great family pets. Because pit bulls love humans so much, they make a great choice for families! Pit Bulls are a loyal, people-oriented breed that thrive as part of the family.  They are affectionate with both adults and children.

You might have second thoughts about this breed because it doesn’t have that angelic and innocent-looking face nor a cute body built like other breeds. But rest assured that this breed is not as dangerous as it looks, with proper training and ownership. Next time you see a pit bull, I hope you think twice about typecasting them as the monsters that society has made them out to be.

    1. I don’t care much about what they say about them but over and over they keep killing people today is 3/19/2021 and a few days back in NJ 2 of this dogs entered a fenced back yard killing the 3 year old and putting in critical condition the mother so this article is a big lie this dogs will kill someone soon or later they should be banned in the whole country

        1. I held the crown for the most retarded person in the world, but with this comment… I think im gonna have to give it to you mate

      1. Humans have killed lots of other people too, but that doesn’t make the whole species “vicious”. It’s the same for dogs and pit bulls, it’s not like every single pit bull is vicious and very dangerous. Some are because they were raised like that, they were neglected and treated poorly. They are such kind and gentle creatures, and yes they can be violent at times, but so can every other breed of dog. You just have to give them a chance to be raised right and trained to be kind. You can’t say those things about pit bulls unless you’ve actually encountered one and gotten to know it, and if you actually did, you would change your mind.
        I am doing a speech for school about how pit bulls are not a vicious breed and how they are misunderstood. Thank you for reading my comment, and please tell other.

        1. “They are only protecting themselves” is not true at all. A huge reason that people want pit bulls banned is because they attack small, defenseless children in high rates. They are not “only protecting” themselves from 3 year olds.

      2. 1234567891011121314151617181920

        Yes they might bad but, that does not mean they are not nice.Humans kill to. And by the you are saying that means that the whole world should be banned

      3. Pitbulls shoud not be banned, Pitbulls only become aggresive and mean towards neglect i would know my uncle has a pitbull and he is the sweetest dog ever but if you neglect them then that is when they turn mean. So it is actually the owners fault that there dog is so mean i think that people who have abused dogs should not be allowed to have any pet stay in your lane you know nothing

      4. I just want to say it is people teaching these animals how to kill. If other people get killed by pits then that is basically people killing them because THEY have trained these loving animals to kill and destroy. We are the problem, not the dogs. Cruel people are the issue. Did you know when I was younger we had a pit rescue and I have seen so many pits that didn’t fight? Alright here is a good example. Some people had this nice loving red-nosed pit. They tried to force her to fight but she wouldn’t do it. Can you guess what they did? They beat her and poured hot boiling grease down that poor dog’s back, and what did she do … NOTHING. she still didn’t fight because THAT IS NOT THE WAY THEY WANT TO BE! Why do people think it is the dog’s fault? HEY WAKE UP. IT IS US NOT THEM. If people would quit wanting to watch dogs tear each other up and if people would quit training them to be so cruel NONE of that would have ever happened.

      5. You really think you have control to kill animals? Pit bulls are dogs, dogs are descended from wolves and they kill people, so what you’re saying is every dog or any animal that has killed someone should be killed? You really think that you can do that? With some animals, it’s illegal to kill them so you go ahead and try. Have fun in jail buddy because you don’t have a hot clue about pit bulls if you just said that. So thanks but not every animal is dangerous.

      6. my pitbull has never bit anyone and goes in parks all the time kids love him. Its the owners of the dogs. Im sure every other dog breed has killed at least on person its not just pitbulls.

      7. Mama I understand what you are saying but you are not true this article is more truer than not pitbulls are like you are saying, I have a pit bull all she doe is lick my face let people come up and pet her she even lays in the bed and sleeps with me this is wrong for you to because there are evil people teaching these dogs to kill.

      8. to the early 1800s in the United Kingdom. Pit Bulls were originally bred from Old English Bulldogs (these dogs are similar in appearance to today’s American Bulldog) who gained their popularity on the British Isles in a cruel blood sport known as “bull baiting”. One to two Bulldogs were set to harass a bull for hours until the animal collapsed from fatigue, injuries, or both. SO ITS NOT THEIR FAULT!!

      9. Many different types of dogs have killed people, but pits are the only dog breeds that people pay attention too and target. It is the owners not the dogs. I feel very strongly about this topic and would like it if you kept an open mind to accepting it and educating yourself a bit more.

      10. they are good pets and they are not killing people they are protecting there home and family and they
        should not be banned because they are good pets and they do not need to dye

      11. Hello Anthony, you see no dog is just down violent. That is a trait that is caused by humans training them or if they feel like they are in danger. And it’s like this with all dogs not just pit bulls. Pit bulls just have a bad reputation for things like dog fights (which human force them to do for their entertainment.) But truly, pit bulls are great with people! They were even called “Nanny Dogs” back in the day! This was because of how well they are with kids! So truly if pit bulls are violent, don’t blame them, blame the people who trained them that way.

      12. Well we will never know what that dogs history with other humans is. so you can’t blame that whole breed of dogs for one dogs mistake.

      13. That’s because it was bread to be violent just that 1 not all the rest just because one does something bad doesn’t mean they all are bad

      14. Did you actually understand any of what you just read? Dogs are trained to be dangerous or shown violence to be that way. Both german shepards and Rottweilers have stronger bite forces. Not having an open mind to the reasons pitties are dangerous is purposefully ignorant and stupid.

      15. Your very wrong. I have a pit bull at home and he is the most loving animal. Some pit bulls are dangerous because they were treated wrong and abused. Also dont say thing if you dont know if that is ture or not

      16. HAH, your funny, PEOPLE are why they are aggressive, WE used them for dog fights, WE bred them to be fighting dogs, so WE are the monsters, not them. Use your brain.

      17. Is it really the dog’s responsibility if the pitbull murdered someone? If you don’t know the whole story of the person who died in the attack, then it can’t be the dog’s fault. A pitbull is just like any other dog, and some people don’t realize that, but I’ve had one before. Not only that but what if the individual who was assaulted by the pitbull was actually provoking the dog? I simply do not believe Pitbulls should be prohibited, and it is NOT the dogs’ responsibility that people like you do not understand them, but I’m sure humans have killed multiple people as well maybe even more LOL, so if a dog kills approximately one person every week or so, does it really matter?

      18. You are honestly stupid because you must not have read the whole article. A pitbull acts like that based on how they are trained.

      19. Ayo all this BSL is doing is tearing family’s apart a Pitbull lost a leg for its mother saving from a train. Dogs aren’t meant to be vicious all your trying to do is ruin family’s Pitbull’s save there family’s your just bad person trying to ruin family’s I want you to be reading this and realize that what your doing is wrong Pitbull’s might attack if somebody abuses them does something like normal dogs.

  1. I absolutely LOVE Pit bulls I may be young but have a very big passion for them and very knowledgeable about them. I have 3 and adore them I love this article so much and you clearly have a very great perspective of this breed of dogs.

  2. I agree with this article because I had a Pit Bull and someone who was soulless ran him over he was a young pup and I have and always will be silently crying until this breed gets justice for their miss treatment and I am about to make the first two decisions that will hopefully change the thoughts of the breed one in which is volunteer work and taking a dog home to care for it for a week which will be a Pit and I will continue taking the same dog until my point has been made and I am writing an essay that I am useing the sites information for to get the breeds reputation some justice and my lost friend that I loved dearly.

    1. I am so sorry for your loss, I feel the same way, I am also writing an essay on ” vicious” animals, I truly don’t believe that they are vicious. Pit bulls are great friends and companions, and loyal. Your pit bull must have been happy to have such a great dog owner 🙂

      1. Yes, I love Pitbulls with all my heart and I can really see why people can be scared of them but the only reason they think that is because of their appearance many people clip their ears so they do not get ear infections I have had many Pitbulls and I can say they were all very loyal I would choose a pitbull over any human/dog any day / p.s I own one right now and he is super sweet and the most day I feel as if I don’t even deserve him.

  3. I myself are a Border Collie Fan, had having two of them. But now seeing how unfairly treated and misjudged Pit Bulls are makes me so upset about this cruel world and justice needs to be brought. (This site is amazing! Way to go!)

    1. Yeah, unfortunately some bastard MADE their dogs that way. Unfortunately, yeah, the dogs will have to be put down. But it is NOT the dogs fault! It’s the complete asshat human that did that to them. I have a pittie. A RESCUE pittie at that! She’s the sweetest most docile thing in the world. All she ever wants to do is CUDDLE because I train and teach her PROPERLY.

      Don’t blame the BREED. Blame the asshats that turn ANY animal viscous. And for the record, it’s not just PITTIES they do this shit to. I knew a black lab that was more viscous than any other breed of dog I’d ever seen. I’ve seen freaking chihuahuas leave worse bites and be more aggressive than a German Sheppard.

      Get educated. Stop perpetuating the myth.

    2. You know this isn’t the Pitbulls fault right? There is absolutely no way a Pitbull would randomly come to a person’s house and kill people. No dog would do that without being told.

    3. You’re the selfish one I saw horrible images of these beautiful dogs piled on top of each other … dead. Why? Because the B.S.L was approved in the area they lived in. They took innocent dogs from their owners and killed them. That is sick it’s wrong and not right.

    4. oh i’m not susprised at this another one PITBULLS ARE VISCOUS THEY SHOULD BE BANNED look at what your doing to families Pitbull’s save there family’s a Pitbull woke up a child’s parents when he had a seizure may this please end and your the one that is ruining families now please make the world better not tear it apart with your dumb words

  4. For everyone who is saying people is selfish for supporting pitbulls, read the actual article, maybe you’ll find your brain along the way. I support pitbulls too.

    1. I really dont think that Pit Bulls should be banned. I mean like their just very nice little muts that are very loyalty. I mean like yes they will do bad things but thats only when their owners train them baddly. And like in flordia in 2012 all they did was blame it on Pit Bulls. I have a pit bull and she is very sweet whoever says pit bulls are dangerous is wrong.For everyone who is saying people is selfish for supporting pitbulls, read the actual article, maybe you’ll find your brain along the way. I support pitbulls too.Pitbulls are really cute and nice, i agree with article

  5. The facts are as follows: Sure, like any other dog breed or even humans from the same family or litter, some by their genetics are either aggressive or even tempered. The problem with pitbulls is they are stronger and display more tenacity when misbehaving than other breeds so they can cause more damage than other breeds which is why they are superior in the pit. I love crocodiles myself and would love to aquire one but they’re illegal in my state for a reason.

  6. I have a pitbull and we taught him through learning with treats and obeying us he is now a good dog and he loves to sleep with me on my couch and lay on my legs while I watch my tv

    He is a very good dog and everyone loves him

  7. pit dulls are just like other dogs but they are more viches and more protectev over you + they are great with kids i have 1 and she is sooooooooo cute.
    YES or NO
    SHOULD PIT BULLS BE BANNED

  8. look at it this way, if a human kills someone they go to jail. but if a pit bull kills a human,they get put down. #pitbulllivesmatter

  9. Noneofyourbusiness

    I personally have a pitbull and he is the sweetest thing in the world and yes, he may bark at you through the door but once you actually get to know him is is the biggest baby EVER and usually it’s the owner that has either neglected them, abused them, or starved them. I am sorry for those of you who support pitties being banned but you can’t be selfish liars. y’all can go f yourselvess

  10. look at it this way, if a human kills someone they go to jail. but if a pit bull kills a human,they get put down. #pitbulllivesmatter

  11. Bruh.
    Why do people think that pit bulls are vicious? They are actually the sweetest dogs I have ever met. I have met so many, and 99.9% of them are the sweetest dogs in the universe.
    Besides their “aggressive looks”, people clip their ears so they look intimidating and scary, when deep inside they are so FREAKIN sweet!
    Don’t believe the lies, believe my side.
    Thanks.

  12. I’m so glad these creatures are banned in U.K., it’s just a shame that most of the moronic owners who want them, who let’s be honest, usually celebrate the fact that they could beat such and such dog, are not euthanised the same way.
