I'm an animal lover as much as anyone but there is a certain type of idiotic pride in owning a pit and not training it or containing it properly and I blame the owners.
I run by shepherds, bulldogs, huskies, beagles, and golden doodles. At most they bark or run to their property line...
Twice in my time running ive been attacked. One time dog came at me in the street and we got tangled up and luckily I got away and another one came chasing after me with the red neck owner calling it back. It bite me on the leg. Both of those incidents were pits..
Do I blame the dog nope, dog is being a dog chasing or protecting I blame the stupid owner. But Pits are more likely to run at you with teeth showing vs many other breeds.
