>No anime pits
>shibas and nekos
What gives, nips.
Lovable pets are a big thing in anime.
>they are very protective of family
That's not really a good thing. It just means they'll destroy anything they perceive as a threat, even if it actually isn't. Dogs aren't exactly smart enough to be good judges of intent.
>being a white trash piece of shit or a nigger
Seriously, 99% of people who have a pitbull are either black or live in a fucking trailer park.
What is training? Not to mention breeding - it's hard to breed the traits out of the breed when dipshits continue breeding them to fight, and it's dumb to blame the dog for doing what it was bred to do. Blame the jackasses who breed them to fight.
It's a high number, but not that high.
>A 2009 report issued by DogsBite.org shows that 19 dog breeds contributed to 88 deaths in a recent 3-year period. Pit bulls accounted for 59% followed by rottweilers with 14%.
Huskies are marked as being responsible for 5% of deaths in that same year. Never here about that, huh? Or that American Bulldogs took 11%.
I had no idea /a/ was this fucking stupid with regards to dogs.
>muh media sensationalism
If you fags were old enough to remember, you'd know that before Pit Bulls became the popular target for "vicious dog breed" the dogs everybody hated were Rottweilers, and also German Shepherds, and also Doberman Pinschers. Back in the 90s it seemed like every other "mean dog" in the movies was a Rottweiler, now they're all pit bulls because that's what people are trained to hate.
Step it up, OP
That's because you were born after 1980.
Yet no bulldogs of any kind.
You're far too young to remember when German Shepherds were seen as violent breeds not fit for keeping as pets, they were stigmatized as police/military dogs.
I'm not saying there aren't well-behaved pit bulls out there or that all owners are irresponsible, but if you're saying you have to train them NOT to attack people it doesn't say a lot for the breed. A dog shouldn't need to be trained for that, it should come naturally.
Pit bulls aren't naturally violent, that has to be taught to them.
Bulldogs were actually known as "nanny dogs" prior to the late 20th century because of their sweet dispositions, especially around children, and this includes bull terriers like pit bulls. They have also been used as therapy dogs more recently.
Like German Shepherds they also have a long history of being used with police and military units, and it wasn't until pit fighters started using the breed that suddenly everybody started calling them "evil" and "inherently vicious".
Pitts are docile by nature, you have to train them to attack. The reason they're seen as aggressive is because they are a very popular dogfighting breed.
German Shepards are way more aggressive. Like you said, a good owner can train them out of it but their nature is a reason that breed is commonly trained as attack dogs.
Sage for shitty tiny dogs
Also for not anime
Protip: breeds like pitbulls or rottweilers are the dogs typically owned by retards like jocks.
If you think you have balls then try breeds like tosa-inu which are actually fucking banned in some countries.
