When I did volunteer work for some local rescues and shelters, pit bulls were to be put down immediately when brought to the shelter so it was well known for the dog to be labeled as any other breed or mix that was a possibility just to not label the dog as a pit bull. Looking at the picture, the dog definitely has very strong pit bull traits although it may be mixed with something as well (like most dogs are).

You sound like a teenager with the "hater" crap.

Aside from that, rotts and pits are two very different animals. Sure any large dog can inflict more tissue damage than the ankle biters. Keep in mind however that pits have terrier mixed in them, which gives them a different instinct and hardwiring than does a rott. So despite rotts being #2 on the human fatality charts, I'd generally trust them well beyond a pit any day of the week.

This sort of thing seems to happen over and over, yet you STILL get people defending pit bulls to the death (oops).

It makes no sense, because there are 8039 other breeds of dogs (approximately) on the planet. Why people, when getting a dog, INSIST that the dog HAS to be a pit bull is beyond me. It's stupid, really. Given how many other great dogs there are, why would one take a chance on a breed with this reputation, even if they're being unfairly stigmatized? There are so many other breeds out there without the reputation, why risk it?
