  1. MAN NEARLY LOSES HIS FACE AND PITBULLFORUM SINKS TO A NEW LOW.

    i can’t stop thinking how incredibly uncommon it is for a dog to just run up to someone and bite them in the face. i also emailed someone and noted that if that did happen, there’s a good chance there wouldn’t be any flesh left on the guy’s face, because the gravity pulling the dog’s body back to earth would cause the skin to tear all the way down.

    the images on the news show a serious bite with no ripping or tearing like that evident. there’s a huge wound under his eye, where i presume the dog’s upper canines sunk in, and another huge wound on his upper lip, where i imagine the bottom teeth sunk in . . . the guy lost a portion of his upper lip.

    but again, i just don’t see how the dog could possibly have run up on him and jumped up and bit him on the face without doing significantly more damage than that.

    unless the guy was restraining the dog or “laying” on the dog, as they said in one report, then got bit . . .

    dunno, the whole thing is just so . . . off.

    CLEARLY PBF NEEDS TO STEP ASIDE AND LET A PROFESSIONAL WORK THIS CASE. IS WHITEWASH JIMMY AVAILABLE OR IS HE STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO PLACE THE BLAME ON TWO YEAR OLD VALENCIA NEWTON? THE NUTTERS SURE DO NEED HIS SERVICES IN MARYLAND.

  2. Here is a little advice for Baby Reba who “can’t stop thinking how incredibly uncommon it is for a dog to just run up to someone and bite them in the face.”

    After 8700 comments on PBF alone, one might get the impression that Baby Reba actually KNOWs something about pit bulls.
    Maybe Baby Reba needs to spend a little more time READING about pit bulls and a lot less time blathering endlessly about pit bulls.

    Let me direct you to Diane Jessup’s website, THE WORKING PIT BULL and after you digest all of that information, I strongly recommend that you spend time at game-dog.com. As much as I despise the game-doggers, at least they are honest about the breed. You will learn a lot from Marty’s gang.

    “There are aspects of ring sport which put the bulldog at a disadvantage when competing against sheepdogs like shepherds and malinois. The sport requires the dog, at times, to bite and then quickly release and retreat – something no true bulldog is willing to do. Also, biting the leg, which is considered preferable, takes more training for a bulldog who will naturally shun the extremities in favor of the more “courageous” bites to the body. A bulldog is bred to grip the head of its prey – whereas a sheepdog nips the legs.”
    Diane Jessup

    Let’s recap.
    1) a pit bull is trained to jump up 4-6 ft and grab onto a rope
    2) a pit bull is bred to grip the head of its prey

    I can see why Diane is no longer welcome at PBF. PBF nutters live in the land unicorns and rainbows.

  3. The nutters go there seeking reinforcement….The steady stream of mauling stories are relexively responded to in lockstep fashion with the following excuses:

    Blame the owner
    wasn’t a pit bull
    media conspiracy
    chaining
    pit bull had pups
