Most of what you wrote is bull. (no pun intended)
“racism and racial persecution for dogs”?
Come on. I hope you are kidding. I have a feeling your not. That scares me.
Tell you what Chief, I’ll give you a choice.
You can be attacked by a chihuahua or pit bull.
Your “poodle fact” is just as mis-leading. Poodles make great guard dogs becasue they are smart, not vicious. Same with shepards, although they tend to be “nervous biters.” They will snap but not usually attrack to kill.
A pit bulls behavior is determined by training.
Wrong - but let’s give it to you anyway. Pit bull owners tend to want agressive dogs and they treat them that way. What self-respecting pit bull owner wants a wimpy dog? A big part of the problem is people. But the breed itself is also a problem.
Pit bulls are inclined to attack without warning. They go for the throat and don’t let go. Selective breeding made them that way.
Pit Bulls kill more people (perceantage) of all ages than any other breed. Mutts are at the bottom of the list. Wanna guess how many people chihuahuas and poodles have killed in the last 46 years? Heck, they aren’t even on the list.
Different breeds have different characteristics. Pits and rots are killers. Poddles are docile. Greyhounds will run 'till they drop. Cihuahuas are just plain darn annoying.
Any dog that’s big enough can be dangerous. Some becasue of breed will be more dangerous than others.
Same goes for cats. There are fools out there trying to breed 120 pound cats!
I will not rent or lease/option to someone with a viscious breed. Period. I don’t want gov’t deciding which dogs are good and bad. But I do support the right of an insurance company to ban the darn things.
