Don't say Pit Bull...say American Staffordshire Terrier....or, better yet, if your dog is like mine, and has Am. Staff. parents and grandparents mixed in with pit, you can say American Staffordshire Terrier Mix...and just don't mention that the mix part is Pit Bull.

Dawntree in Carrollton was perfectly happy to allow pits to run all over, attack dogs, tires, and tree branches (stripping any branches low enough to jump to and hang from) , so we know that some complexes will allow them.*

Before jumping at this pro-pit complex though, I will also post pictures of
Dawntree's unrepaired-for-days raw sewage spills (http://fratermu.freeshell.org/dawntree/IMAGE_042.jpg - broken link),
outdoor furniture (http://fratermu.freeshell.org/dawntree/Picture106_17Sep05.jpg - broken link),
grafitti (http://fratermu.freeshell.org/dawntree/Picture242_29Oct05.jpg - broken link),
vehicular damage (http://fratermu.freeshell.org/dawntree/Picture251_31Oct05.jpg - broken link),
abandoned shopping carts (http://fratermu.freeshell.org/dawntree/Picture264_11Nov05.jpg - broken link),
beer bottles (http://fratermu.freeshell.org/dawntree/Picture430_19Nov06.jpg - broken link),
syringes (http://fratermu.freeshell.org/dawntree/Picture598_16Apr06.jpg - broken link),
condoms (http://fratermu.freeshell.org/dawntree/IMAGE_043.jpg - broken link),
etc.

There are also pictures of abandoned butcher knives, dead animals, human excrement (with toilet paper!) between buildings etc, but I am getting bored of detailing the health and safety issues at Dawntree. The directory is browseable, so have fun.

* I am not claiming that your highly-trained and socialable pit would behave like that.

Well one, I'm not looking to live in a dump. So I'm not sure why you even responded to all that. And no my pit is not highly trained. But she is sociable, and I'm also not an idiot and walk her without a leash or just let her roam around on her own.

Cautiously sticking my neck out here . . . I don't think too many non pit bull owners have a fondness for the beasties. So you may not have too much luck getting advice here.
In fact, I'll happily lie through my teeth and say nowhere in Carrollton do apts welcome pit bulls You may want to look closer to downtowns. I've seen boatloads of the breed in the parks down there.

I don't have a pit bull, but I like them. I don't live in an apartment any longer, but when I did, it seemed that pets were limited by number and size, more than breed.

I do agree with calling it an Am. Staff. though. Non-dog people have no clue - people think our long haired German Shepherd is a collie...

you may have a hard time finding one... some neighborhoods (like mine) won't even allow them in your home. it's actually in the sales contract.

Animal lover here! Innocent dogs and loving owners shouldn't be punished but I have to agree w/ bookworm!

As much as I love animals, too many children and people are getting killed each year by pitt bulls. Don't know why they are so dangerous. People always say it is the owners fault but truth be told, these are just by nature no matter how loving a breed that cannot be trusted.

Bookworm, I have to side w/ you and stick my neck out as well. These seem like wonderful caring animal owners. It's just too many owners have left babies and children near pitt bulls in and way too many are in the news because of the attacks. Over 1000 attacked last year alone. Can't say how many for sure but it's the largest number for a animal.

Are you saying there was over 1000 attacks by Pit Bulls last year alone? Really, I would love to know where you got that figure from?

Truth of the matter is, Pits aren't even the most likely to bite people. It is the fact that when they do attack, it is usually vicious because of the size and strength of the dog. Any dog can be lethal, as in the Pomeranian who mauled a baby to death. So if you look at statistics and studies, they study the dog and the OWNER, not just target certain breeds.

So yes, Pits have a bad name, and may be labeled an dangerous breed, but I do strongly believe a lot more factors need to included before you just blanket the whole breed like that. Just my opinion
