I have a few family members who work for the Post Office and dogs attacking them is not rare and no joke.

Plus, the fact that these are pit bulls makes me wonder about the owners. It's no secret that most pit bull owners are typically lower class citizens.

When I was looking for a new apartment, I was down to two complexes. The deciding factor: one allowed dogs, while the other did not. Personally, I've experienced one too many near attacks by dogs who could not be controlled by their clueless owners; it's worth spending the extra $150/month for that peace of mind.

Theres hardly ever any pedestrians so people think that theres no harm in letting their dog remain outside while they go to work or to the store. That isnt being a responsible pet owner. Your dog may be loving to you and lick you all over but that doesnt mean its going to do the same to everyone else.

+1 I'd never want to live in an apt building that allowed dogs. Many owners don't know how to control their dog. Dog bites are all too common. Oh yeah and then you have non stop barking with some dogs and inside an apt it's absolutely unbearable. Some Dog owners seem to do nothing but trample all over the rights of others. ZERO common courtesy. They don't give a crap about you. Only their dog. Really awful people to be around as well./

So, you read only the ignorant and inflammatory headline, didn't read the article or any article on the attack or watch the video which very clearly shows that the dogs are NOT pit bulls.
