  1. No surprises in this lineup, except for the Schipperke – that one just doesn't fit somehow. It's not in their nature, and there are no other accounts of such an attack by a Schipperke. I just have to wonder if there is something else going on there that we aren't privy to.

    • I'm assuming you're referring to the dog pictured in the story above about 91yr old Antanaitus of Stratford, Connecticut? That pic is of a Keeshound "mix" (it is stated above the pic), and not a little Schipperke. Who knows what the Keeshound was mixed with.

  2. Looking at these particular dog faces reminds me of a quote from Werner Herzog's film Grizzly Man, from Herzog himself in the voiceover: "And what haunts me, is that in all the faces of all the bears that Treadwell ever filmed, I discover no kinship, no understanding, no mercy. I see only the overwhelming indifference of nature. To me, there is no such thing as a secret world of the bears. And this blank stare speaks only of a half-bored interest in food. But for Timothy Treadwell, this bear was a friend, a savior." Although really, in reference to pit bulls, this is an insult to nature, who is not so cruel or without reason as these dogs were bred to be.

  3. Very similar look and butt ugly too. I can't understand what makes the owners of dangerous breed dogs so deep in denial and vicious in defense of the indefensible.

  4. My aunt got a pit in 2013. While she is a beautiful animal, I am still very weary of becoming to comfortable and lacking awareness of her strength. My boyfriend and I walked her just a block from the house when she smelled and heard another dog BEHIND A WOOD FENCE. She would have torn a plank from that fence and killed that dog if it were not sturdy as it was. I was shocked to see her so angry -the dog had done nothing! My aunt left my 12 y/o son home only with her once, which pissed me off into space, chalking it off like the pit was a big baby. It's simply untrue. I don't want her put down, but she should not be bred.
