Some places, like Miami-Dade County, ban pit bulls because the dog breed has been deemed as too dangerous to own. Pit bull safety advocates say the breed naturally has a stronger bite and is more aggressive than most dogs. Pit bull owners say pit bulls aren't actually more dangerous. It depends on how the owner raises the dog. What do you think? 🐶

The Dodo thinks pit bulls have a bad reputation they don't deserve.

The ASPCA argues that critics of pit bull adoption tend to overrate genetics and underrate environmental factors, and the laws outlawing the adoption of a pit bull "create the illusion, but not the reality, of enhanced public safety."

All dogs, including pit bulls, are individuals. Treating them as such, providing them with the care, training and supervision they require, and judging them by their actions and not by their DNA or their physical appearance is the best way to ensure that dogs and people can continue to share safe and happy lives together.

Pit bulls are widely seen as extremely aggressive and dangerous dogs. Critics say today's pit bulls descend from the English bull-baiting dog, which was bred to fight bulls and other large animals for entertainment. Because of this, pit bulls are just naturally more dangerous in terms of their personality and physical ability to cause harm. Just like how herd dogs are more likely to herd than a poodle, it's possible that some dogs are genetically predisposed to being more aggressive.

That's not to say all pit bulls are bad. Obviously, training and environment both play a huge role in how a dog acts. Critics say pit bulls are just too high of a risk to have in society. There are no real reasons to need a pit bull beside the fact that you like them. Banning the breed would protect humans from unnecessary harm.
