A beautiful tribute to a precious boy. Never forget, these are the reasons this site exists. Behind every news story is a grieving family asking why pit owners are so unbelievably callous and selfish, a victim who did NOT deserve an attack, and a dangerous animal some misguided people are more concerned with than people like Tanner.

The anti-BSL measures got passed by dog breeders and dog fighters who knew full well that their dogs were causing grave problems, but wanted to protect their INCOMES they make from pit bulls from being affected by regulation.

Most of these breeders don't even pay taxes, and all of the dog fighters are criminals.

The legislators who catered to these bad citizens so they could hurt good citizens need to be held accountable.

Bad laws need fixing.

The breeder that sold the dog who attacked the Ms Lynn is really responsible for the creation DBO! Yet no one from the Pit community can make the connection....

Breed safer pit bulls please!

Pit bulls possess an amazing ability to inflict maximum injury to its opponent. Man made this problem. The man made solution is specific laws restricting this breed. An average adult man is unable to stop a pit bull in the "red zone". These dogs are a remnant of a bygone era. Dog fighting is a FELONY in all 50 states. PICK A DIFFERENT DOG TO OWN, DON'T PUT ME, MY WIFE, KIDS AND PETS AT RISK.

Congratulations, and keep up the good work, Colleen. I know it is hard and that you suffer the slings and arrows of those that are out to discredit you and all sound and verifiable facts about blood-sport breeds. Why, I even read on a pit nutter site that pit bulls were originally bred to be nanny dogs, which is why they were chosen to be fighting dogs -- because they love humans so and will do anything to please their masters. Yikes! What a complete distortion of the truth! With that type of propaganda being disseminated and being believed, and repeated, you are needed now more than ever!

Thank you Don, you have very clearly defined the problem and the solution.
Thank you to DBO for two years of hard work. This site is a VERY valuable resource for individuals interested in public safety. Pit bull attacks change lives... or end them.

The Nutters have created a Petition to stop DBO....It's crazy how they believe DBO is their enemy instead of the breeders pumping out containment breaking and mauling freaks.

The Dogmen stringpullers are masters a manipulating these young ethereal girls!

Thanks again DBO for compiling this info so we can use it to fight. You will be the one to break the back of "No Kill" and stop the foolishness of this movement to "save them all".

Congratulations to Colleen, A wonderful and brave servant of the public. Her work has certainly saved people from being mauled and offered comfort and information to mauling victims. As one of those victims I can never express my graditude well enough to thank her for this site, her strength and courage.

A petition to stop DBO? Who are they petitioning?

I was reading through their forums the other night (I know I shouldn't waste my time but I find them addictive in their illogic) and I saw the thread that arose when DBO first came online. That was a hoot..."I've never seen the pro-BSL side so PROFESSIONAL...we MUST stop them..."

I have to say that my favorite "pit moment" in DBO's 2 years online was the time that the FABB owner's pit attacked the Lab at the PIT RALLY. Ahhhhh, sometimes you just have to say "ha"!

Colleen, thank you so much for all of the effort you have put in over the last 2 years. I really think you are making a difference.

It needs to be pointed out that in both the Tanner Monk and Justin Clinton attrocities the owners weren't mere owners....They were breeders!

Unlike other breed communities there is no self-regulation when it comes to proliferating man-maulers and man-killers within the Pit Bull community.

The "Breed Stewardship" in breeding pit bulls is actually quite rigorous, as the point is to breed the most aggressive dogs possible (aka dogfighters) and kill the curs. Said another way, the only "Breed Stewardship" within the pit bull community is a criminal act in all 50 states.
