Elementary really! Pits are 14 times more likely than other breeds to break containment and attack.

We see this nearly everyday...sigh.

“In the Lockwood & Rindy study(1987), 42 percent of pit bull attacks involved dogs that were fenced, chained or inside prior to the incident. Another 14% involved dogs jumping fences or breaking chains. For bites involving other breeds, 26.7 were similiarly restrained, BUT ONLY 1% involved breaking restraint.”

There needs to be a study done on pits and gardening aggression..Over the past few years,several grandmothers have been killed while gardening, with one actually pulled off riding lawnmower. I wonder if the constant bending down sends a signal that the grandmother is another matchdog that is looking for a fight?
