American Staffordshire terriers, American Pit Bull Terriers, and Staffordshire Bull terriers all came from the same dog that was used for bloodsport. The difference with your dog was either 1) the dog had a good breeder or 2) you were a good dog owner. All three of those breeds are prone to dog aggression, but none of the breeds I mentioned are known for stranger aggression or even wariness with strangers.>>2322070
That was the point my friend. Being 'aggressive' can mean many things in the dog world. All hounds are aggressive. That's vague, so you think it's wrong. It's not completely wrong but it's not completely right either. They are prone to be aggressive to small animals. I can tell you first hand that if you leave an untrained beagle in a room with a rabbit, it will most likely kill that rabbit. Whether you like it or not, many hounds (unless trained otherwise) will try to catch, and then kill, what they are chasing. This makes them aggressive towards those animals. But we don't see this as dangerous to people, because people are not rabbits. The same can be said for dog to dog aggression, but for some reason people tend to have a huge mental block when you get to dog aggression not being human aggression.
On that note let's think critically here and try to come up with a testable theory of why Chows, Akitas, and Rotties no longer make up the majority of dog attacks.>inb4 muh fairy logic
Testable is the keyword here>>2322066
The problem, like most of this thread, is pit bull/pit can be used multiple ways. I doubt most of the posts here are referring only to APBT. Because of how washed out the term has become, everyone has their own personal definition of a pit bull.>>2322079
There are many breed bred to 'fuck shit up'. Wolfhounds, deerhounds, elkhounds, Ridgebacks, salukis, etc etc>>2322082
Either you didn't read or you didn't understand the per 100 part. Take statistics in high school, you'll thank me later.
