OK. So it looks like this one has been bouncing around the web for a while now, but it's new to me! Three more pics after the jump, including a photo of the Pit. Yow! Via 8thcivic.com

The dog needs a job.

The next job this dog takes on will be a person, maybe the owner, or maybe someones' kid (if it hasn't already happened).

This is what happens because of the way they choose to live with their dog. Too bad, for the dog.

The dog looks like he's on steroids. I wouldn't put it past some redneck pit-bull owner. Dogs do very well if they are brought up right - when I see things like this, my sympathy lies with the dog - the owner should be shot.

Hi Mikerho,

I agree with you.

Here in the UK it is forbidden to own a pit-bull because in the past they have attacked and killed many children. Only this week a Staffordshire bull terrier attecked and killed an 8months old baby! This dog was of course put down!!!

Of course this is not the fault of the dog, the owners of such dogs should have them on a lead at all times or muzzled.

Spencer.

That's horrible!

People have no idea about dogs. Many are not a problem for the uneducated, many overwhelm the owners with their pack drive.

I was one of the many who was clueless about this when I selected a German Shepherd puppy for our family dog. I went to many training classes with the dog, but serious problems started to develop and I could find no one, either trainers or behaviorists, that could correctly guide me. My dog became dominant and aggressive and I was "doing everything right" according to the latest learnings on dog training.

At wits end, we were about to try to return the dog to the breeder when I made one final call to a local trainer I had briefly met a year ago. One of his personal dogs was in the last Batman film. He saved us and our dog.

However, we have spent a lot of time (and money) learning things that Petsmart, books, and typical trainers are clueless about. We have a remarkable dog now and we also have a huge amount of information on dogs and training that we never had a clue about.

Unfortunately, most people don't have the knowledge, the resources to learn, nor the time or will. As a result, rescue centers are over filled, many good dogs are needlessly killed, and humans and animals are bitten and killed each year due to ignorance.

Pit bulls have also been banned in Miami-Dade county Florida. It is not possible to determine which pit bulls have been well trained, and which have not. To level the field, all were banned.

It could also be that this is another case of Rice Burner bashing. Some owners of American hot rods have not welcomed the influx of Japanese cars.

Hi bob c,

I see that you live in Fort Lauderdale, I have stayed there a couple of times when they have held the Alternative energy conferences, I also stayed at a hotel once in "Sunny Isles", I used to have my breakfast everyday at "Lums cafe", and if I remember correctly the hotel lies on a road called "Collins", am I right?

Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding. You are today's grand prize winner.

Lums was a chain of restaurants. The only one that I know of that is left is in the town of Davie, in the western area of the county.

Collins Ave is the main north - south street that is where many of the Miami Beach hotels are on.

And Sunny Isles is about the most northern community in Miami Dade county. And on the East side, where we happen to have placed the Atlantic ocean.

How long ago were you here?

Hi bob c,

The last time I was there was in 1985, and the hotel I stayed at was on Collins. In those days there was a Lums restaurant on the righ hand side of Collins going south.

Every dog has its own personality, which can be influenced by the owner only to a degree. A bad owner can spoil a good dog and a good owner may be unable to correct a bad dog. It is not always the fault of parents when their children turn out bad either, some people are just not right.

I know of one rescued Rottweiler that was going to be killed in the pound for being agressive after being beaten by someone who broke into the house, but despite her distrust of other strangers, I was able to walk up and pet her. Scratching her back was her joy and she always loved to see me come to visit, unlike some others who were afraid of her and at whom she would growl.

Many years ago I had the opportunity to adopt a Neapolitan Mastiff that had been abused as a younger dog. My oldest daughter developed a close bond with this dog. They played in the yard for many hours. But the dog never forgot. If anyone went to use a broom, garden hose, or a metal garbage can, the dog would go and hide. We always were careful to not startle the dog, for fear of a fear bite. A wonderful dog. I wish I could afford another.
