Dog Bite-Related Fatalities | Canine Research Council

There are people who will dispute this group's findings as well, but the AMVA has worked in conjunction with them, and if you look at their methodology for researching fatal attacks, it's more extensive than anyone else's. At the bottom of this page are yearly reports on fatal dog attacks. You may find it more authentic or not, but there is a lot of interesting information there.

If you have a better source to refute this source feel free to cite it.
I'm sure there are MANY sources better than one called "dogsbite.org," which even states their entire purpose is to vilify the "pit bull" breed. That would be like citing the Westboro Baptist Church on an issue of equality for homosexuals.

Also, is that dog even an APBT? Looks more like an American Bulldog to me, probably a cross of a few bully breeds. I don't excuse vicious dogs or think they should all be saved, although in this case, the kid shouldn't have been in the yard grabbing bones from a dog's mouth. My dog will let any human take food from his mouth, because I enforced that from puppyhood, but that is not the case for all dogs. And if another dog tried to steal his bone, there WOULD be a fight! But as an adult who understands dog behavior, I would NEVER EVER attempt to take food (or toys) from a dog I don't know... that's just asking for trouble. The adult who should have been watching the child is to blame, however, and I hope the poor kid is doing okay now.

Here, look at this photo of an American Bulldog - does it not resemble "Micky?" I seriously doubt he's an APBT, and I'm not even an expert on the bullies.

Sounds like he was sent to a sanctuary, which is better than both his former situation and being PTS. I'm sure he had some redeeming qualities, or they wouldn't have decided to save him after all.

Looks like a really poorly bred boxer.

Sherriff Joe Arpaio WAS one of my heroes.

As for the dog's lawyer... Does he use a whole tube of hair goop, every morning? That is the filthiest slime-head I've ever seen.

Nope. Not an APBT.

Here's one:

So, after all of our rhetoric.....

Can someone please tell me why our APBT lives blissfully with an old cranky Pomeranian and two cats. Yes, the cats headbutt her once in a while.

Is this an anomaly?

Did we just get lucky?

Proper training and lots of love?

Or are we just sitting on a ticking time bomb?

My *two female* pit bulls, who are devoted to each other, live with three cats, two of whom are their buddies. The other cat scares them (she wishes she could scare the other cats as well, but no such luck).
