|Judge the deed, not the breed
I only hope that one day the media takes its focus off Pitbulls and starts to focus on another breed.
An interesting book on this is The Pit Bull Placebo: The Media, Myths and Politics of Canine Aggression by Karen Delise.
I truely believe that Pitbulls are one of the most loyal, strong, loving and intellegent dog breeds but this also is what I'll call "bad people" see in them too. I don't think any dog "wants" to fight, they are a product of their enviornment.
I guarantee if you tied a golden retriever, a poodle or a lab up to a cement block in the back yard and had no interaction with him and treated him the way "bad people" do, he's gonna bite someone too.
