Okay, you just left yourself wide open there.

I'd prefer Al Bundy, however... "Peg, I'm blind!!!"

It's a ticking time bomb and she's completely oblivious to the problems and won't listen when you try to tell her.
Not even a month later and this pit bull has already attacked another dog in their apartment complex.

Maybe you could give the address or street to avoid this potentially dangerous dog.

It's not in Omaha. It's down here in Florida. Either way, I wouldn't post the address for a variety of reasons, however I'm pretty sure that Animal Control knows about the incident.

I've never had a personal incident with a pitbull before, mainly because I try to avoid them. But I do remember a time I was at the dog park (114th and Maple) in the all dogs area when a pack fight broke out amongst the big dogs and lasted for a very long minute. The people sitting at the table with me were quite annoyed by it and complained the pit bull was the one who started it and apparently the same dog started two others on two different days. Yet the owner sees nothing wrong with bringing the obviously unsocial dog to the park to start a big fight evrey time he's there. One time is questionable but three?

I have had my dog (American Eskimo) attacked twice while walking her in the neighborhood. First dog was a large poodle who realized invisible fences don't really hold her in. The second time was this huge beast of a dog, crossbreed of something that ran at her, broke his chain and put it's entire mouth around my dog's head. Someone driving by was kind enough (or horrified enough) to stop and help me get the stupid dog off her. Luckily she's fine from both incidents. Dog attacks do happen with all breeds but I have no doubt if it had been a Pitbull with it's mouth around my dogs head, she wouldn't be sitting under my desk right now.

Pit Bull Myths and Facts (http://www.thedogpark.com/articles/dog-breeds/pit-bull-breeds/pit-bull-myths-and-facts.php - broken link) go to this website and read the facts people... my 1 year old child slept on my year old pitbull since she was a newborn... he has never maulled her.. if people would raise their dogs right, train them right, and give them the attention they need, they wouldnt have such horrible instances...

That's like saying a criminal's gun wouldn't kill anyone if he'd only stop being a criminal.

A PITBULL IS NOT A GUN AND SHOULD NOT BE USED AS A WEAPON...!!! A PITBULL IS A DOG, A PET... IF YOU LOOK AT IT ALL DOGS ARE DANGEROUS BCUZ ALL DOGS CAN GET PISSED OFF AND BITE... ID TRUST MY ONE YEAR OLD AROUND A PITBULL BEFORE ANY SMALL "ANKLE BITING" DOG ANYDAY... THE REASON PITBULLS LOOK SO BAD ARE FROM PEOPLE LIKE MICHAEL VICK AND OTHERS... A PITBULL ISNT JUST AUTOMATICALLY ANGRY, AGRESSIVE AND READY TO BITE... THEY HAVE REASONS... JUST LIKE ANY OTHER DOG (FOR THE MOST PART)... ALL DOGS INCLUDING PITBULLS CAN FEEL YOUR ENERGY.. SO IF U ARE IN A HOUSE WHERE PEOPLE YELL ALL THE TIME OR A PERSON IS EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE THAT DOG WILL BE UNSTABLE... aLSO IF THE DOG ISNT TRAINED RIGHT, TREATED RIGHT, ETC ETC IT WILL BE UNSTABLE... THIS IS FOR ANY DOG NOT JUST PITBULLS...
