These creatures were officially named "American Pit Bulldogs" until the 1970's.

The Bully breeders have been extremely creative with changing breed names over the years to distance the dogs from their British blood sport heritage, adding "American" or regal sounding "Staffordshire" to disguise it.

Just once, just once, could I read a story where a bull breed owner shows ANY empathy at ALL for the victims? How about an apology? Really, it would be funny if it weren't so scary. Do you have to be a sociopath to own these dogs?

I am beginning to think so.

It's part of the culture of owning these dogs. The owner of the dog that attacked me never even asked my welfare indirectly -- to animal control or my attorney; both made a point of letting me know this...

Again and again these reports show it's the owner, not the dog, that is at fault. Why would a responsible dog owner leave two massive dogs alone for a weekend? It simply makes no sense. Bored dogs will find something to do. In this case they found a way out of their fenced yard.

The owner should be punished, not the dogs.

The dogs left their territory to attack...That's a common Bully breed characteristic.

You have to be living under a rock not to know the risks of owning one of these breeds. They calculated it when the bought the dog, don't expect contrition from them.

the bull dog created the pit bull and when the bull dog nearly became extinct after ww2, they used a lot of pit bull blood to revive the bull dog breed. add to that that today many bull dog breeders are deliberately crossing bull dogs with pits.
there is very little difference between these two breeds.

This story put me in mind of Knoxville, Tn in how they returned dangerous dogs back to their irresponsible owner.It no wonder thugs think it is cool to have dangerous dogs and let them attack.

I am living that nightmare right now in Georgia. I was just attacked by my neighbor's American bulldog and her pitbull. The court case is pending. One dog is still with her, the other in quarantine because it didn't have its shots. She not only didn't ask after my welfare, not only didn't apologize, but tried to blame me for the attack and lied on her report to animal control. For YEARS I have been reporting this woman and her dogs, only to be told they have to hurt somebody before anything will be done. Well, now they have hurt someone, me, and they're still with her. I'm furious and outraged. Georgia is the most backwards state I've ever lived in. It's ridiculous.
