DogsBite.org has gathered our first 1,000 blog posts to highlight our commitment to reducing serious dog attacks and to ensure that victims' voices are heard. A continuation of silence only leads to a continuation of violence. It is time for both to end. We placed together a group of important posts that have been written since the launch of the website (October 2007).

Bravo DBO! The $40 Billion a year petcare industry wants this information to fade into oblivion. More dogs equals more money...and they want zero liability and zero regulation.
Here's a good one that needs to be remembered:
The American "Pit" Bulldog which was adopted out by the humane society and killed the 10 year old boy in New Mexico. This one shouldn't fade due to the HS' involvement.

Congratulations and thank you to Dogsbite.org for reaching this milestone!
One of my favorites was the comment on ATTS, which amounted to the debunking of yet another pro-pit propaganda tool. I have since visited and perused the ATTS.org site to reinforce the points of the comment.
Indeed, ATTS states the importance of its existence today is to respond to BSL. (Only after you understand the 'AGENDA' can you understand their results.)
And how do they explain ranking one breed against other breeds when they use a breed standard for individual dogs, instead of a breed neutral benchmark for evaluating all dogs? (It’s a ridiculous fraud!)
At any rate, Dogsbite.org rocks. Thank you, again!
