This debate will rage on, as long as people like Colleen Lynn keep falsifying information, When you read they did their own research just remember that they are not experts, Colleen has a very clear agenda, and that agenda is to eliminate the breed. I have said this before, but it seems worthy of another go, when I was two years old I was attacked by a Malamute, and it was a particularly vicious attack. The attack resulted in about 60-70 stitches in my face and scalp, this Malamute also clamped down and did not let go!
I do not blame the dog I place the blame squarely on the shoulders of the owner, She knew the dog was unsocialized, he was unaltered, and very people aggressive, yet she placed an ad in the paper to sell furniture knowing that people would be coming to view it. She did not secure her dog and as a result I was mauled. After I was attacked this woman told police she was having a friend euthanize the dog, she lied! What she actually did is sent the dog to live with a friend in Chase River, BC and the dog attacked another small child there. Sound like a responsible owner to you?
Now back to Dogsbite for a moment, Dogsbite.org claims and sites many cases of attacks however, Where’s the DNA Colleen? Several attacks she posted on her site turned out to be other breeds, If in doubt look up a DBO video by FUzupf on Youtube, he has routinely debunked Miss Colleen! So do not buy into everything they are selling. The only thing Colleen is an expert in is how to “Google” stats, now the problem with her stats, is, they are skewed. They come from the media, who also routinely mis-identify the breed.
No matter where you stand on this issue one thing is clear, the dogs are NOT the real issue, and they are NOT born Dangerous, pit bulls were bred to be human complacent, which is why the dog fighters chose them in the first place. Their very nature makes them a candidate for therapy with children. Dr. Ian Dunbar an EXPERT in the field of dog behaviour clearly states his choice for working in the therapy realm would be a pit bull.
So who do I believe, a victim who has turned an attack into a (501c) which frankly is quite laughable. or a real expert? Sorry Colleen, you fail again on that one!
Anyone on the fence about this one Google Dr. Ian Dunbar and see what he has to say on the breed, there are several videos on YouTube done with the him.
Special thanks to Sarah for her article. I will say it would be a great day to see an article or post that does not quote Dogsbite.org since she is a sham and in some cases a liar!
For the rest of us who see through the BS and lies here’s why we are so proud of these dogs the music attached to the video is not appropriate for children.
