I have an American pitbull (didn't realise what type of dog he was when I got him as a pup) and the police have seen him before anyone gets on their high horse. I always keep him on the lead even though he's a big softie I realise people could be scared of him and whatever his temperament he does have the ability to do some real damage. I hate it when people walk their dogs of the lead because if anything were to happen I'd be the one in trouble even though I'm always 100% responsible.

I find it laughable that I've been given two warnings for this thread. Please remove this thread from the Advice forum.
I'm obviously not asking for advice!

A border collie can be just as dangerous as a staffy
It's 100% the owners fault imo
Every single dog has the potential to be dangerous if it's brought up that way.
I admit i let my dog off the lead to run around sniff things do her business etc etc, but i walk her early morning (im talking 5.50 am here) purely so i know there will be very few other dogs around. If i see another dog shes back on the lead.
All dogs no matter the breed are dangerous, people forget that with the doe brown eyes and soft fur and big uber cute ears but dogs are predators, violence is part of thier makeup - some such as fighting dogs (staffie, doberman, mastiff etc) which were bred to fight can be more violent than others. But the owner plays a huge part in it. And now they are being used as weapons by scum bag chavs and the like its becoming worse. so called "dangerous" breeds can be loving loyal wonderful pets and the the "nice ones can be nightmares
