Nobody ever claimed that dogs can't go off the rails the sme ways as humans can develop psychotic behaviour or suffer breakdowns.
Also, I never made any claim that these dog owners were anything apart from what I had observed and that was that IMO they seem like responsible dog owners. I make no claims as to their lives in general.
The hysteria surrounding the danger of dogs is worthy of the finest Daily Mail campaigns. There is a small problem that nobody is denying but some people go on as if this is a major danger when the reality is much different.

If a doberman or german shephard attacks, the bites will be painful for an adult, but I was taught how to defend myself against such attacks, and if necessary even kill one of them by grabbing them undernaeth the neck and crushing their windpipe. Now it can be hard to do that, while the dog is chewing your arm off, but it can be done.
Unfortunately, children are likely to be killed or seriously hurt, often with torn off ears and body parts that can not be replaced, and so forth. One child lost her entire nose, when a german shepahard jumped a fence, and then came in through a screen door in a viscous attack.
Usually the best way to deal with the threat from such a dog, is to NOT RUN. When you run, they chase, because of their hunter instinct. Stand your ground, do not act afraid and do not act like you are going to attack, do not kick or hit at them, and act like you belong there.
A pitbull is totally different. They are likely to attack anyway, no matter what you do, once they are slipping into the attack mode......There is no way an adult can stop their attack. The neck is about as thick and muscular as it can be.
Only thing useful to successfully defend one's self, is a gun
The dogs are illegally used in the deep south to fight each other in pits. Micheal Vick went to prision because of such activities. should still be there....................
Before that, in the good ole days of merry old england, when there was not anyone who needed to be drawn and quartered on a stage, with their guts being pulled out very slow........
So as an alternative, to provide amusement to everyone, from the lowest peasant to the highest royalty, kings and all, one or two pit bulls were thrown into pits with bulls and bears in a fight to the death, which the dog often won......with jaws crushing the vertebrae of the bull.
all dogs will attack...........but none is nearly as likely to be so devasting as a pit bull
That scene with the dog and child....well, all it takes is for the child to jump or run at the wrong moment and the dog's attack instinct will take over. The dog does not heve to have been abused or mistreated, it could have been a sweet puppy all its life, but it is just doing what almost any dog will do. Attack something that is acting like prey or presenting a threat.

Mistreatment increases the probability of an attack because the dog acts unfriendly, barks and scares people into reacting in the wrong fashion, but that attack potential is always present in any dogOnly the dead know the end of war. Plato

From the recent news in my country. A staffordshire terrier owner brought his pet for the first time from the city to the countryside. The inexperienced dog had never seen animals at large, so when he saw a young horse he decided to do a little hunting. As a result his owner had to pay the damage for the dead horse.I had that shaky feeling when she floated into sight
I imagine we'll be doing it tonight

Dogs like that are simply unfit for a domestic lifestyle especially where children are concerned. You'd have to be mental to allow small children near a pit-bull and unsupervised. They are far too powerful to control should something go wrong. I wouldn't want to wipe their breed out completely, but dogs like that have certain uses, one being defence in a working sense. They are not domestic animals simple as.Sky Sports F1 HD = No thanks..
