Bully in a china shop?

This is for everyone that wants to talk in an open and friendly forum about any pet related concerns, ideas, or general thoughts.  So, this is my first endeavor into an open forum like this. So please be kind!  Or NOT!

My opening will be the Bully breeds. Pitbulls, StaffordshireTerrriers, Pocket Pits and everything that has to do with them!  We all know about their reputations and we all have opinions.  But do we have all the facts?  I have my opinion, but do I have all the facts?

I have had a few different breeds of dogs in my life and have handled almost all other breeds in my line of work.  So many different temperaments have passed before my eyes, I start to see human behavior.  Maybe that is a little weird or awkward, but it is true.  I have two pits.  one is a Staffordshire and one is an American Bully.  Ever since meeting these two beautiful Lady PIts, I have been fascinated by the general publics concerns.  Here are my 2 thoughts.

1. (And most important to me)  Owner Responsibility! Come on people, our pets depend upon us to do the right thing by them and the general public so that no persons and no animals get hurt.

2. Genetics. If you do not know yet,  aggressive behavior can be bred in to and out of any breed of canine. If done correctly, it can take around three to four years, depending upon what you are working with.

What are your thoughts and ideas on this subject.  Don’t be shy!
