Good day, sickos. I want to thank all of you for your calls and emails inquiring about my well-being and offering sex at various public parks. But fear not, I am just on a much-deserved, much-needed vacation. Although I am off this week, I will be writing up some stuff off and on while finally being able to focus on some DD house cleaning. I'll also have time to respond to some of you interested in writing. In the meantime, be sure to check out the forums for the latest in terrible news.

Kathryn AtkinsKERNERSVILLE, NC – A 25-year-old woman was mauled to death by her boyfriend’s two pit bulls while trying to feed them.

According to the sheriff’s office, Katherine Atkins was feeding the dogs in an outdoor enclosure because her boyfriend, Albert Jacobs, was running late for work. Jacobs’ roommate called police after he found Atkins lying dead in the backyard near the dogs’ enclosure while the dogs ran loose.

No one knows why the dogs attacked the woman, especially since Atkins regularly fed the dogs and the couple had raised them since they were puppies. Investigators said there is “no history of problems or aggression” with the dogs.

Animal control took both dogs into custody and euthanized them. A necropsy will be performed to determine if a medical condition may have caused them to turn on Atkins. However, Forsyth County Animal Control Director Tim Jennings say they may never know why the male and female pit bulls attacked Atkins.

“People always need to remember their DNA is programmed to be aggressive,” said Jennings. “What kicks in their instincts, what clues they think they’re reading, we can never know.”

At this point, the sheriff’s office does not plan on filing any criminal charges, calling the incident a “terrible tragedy.”

I love reading the comments attached to the news articles reporting on this story. Same old, same old. It’s the breed! It’s the owner! It’s because they were in a cage! It was redirected food aggression! Dogs had no training! Dogs didn’t get enough exercise! The dogs weren’t spayed or neutered!

Here’s a tip: If the dog you want needs to be treated like a goddamn Mogwai so that it doesn’t kill you, maybe you should get a different type of dog.

    Friend of a friend. So sad. – treating pitbulls like mogwai’s – Right?!

  • rpgmomma8404

    People just need to stop getting dogs they can’t handle or have time to socialize. :-

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Any dog will act like an asshole if it isn’t properly trained, socialized, exercised, disciplined, and neutered. It’s just the bigger ones can do more damage–if chihuahuas were big enough to kill anything larger than a field mouse, we would probably hear about them mauling people every day. This shit is what comes of people treating animals like objects rather than animals with their own thoughts, needs, and instincts.

  • Evan

    what has four legs and a baby arm? A happy pitbull.

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    “…because her boyfriend, Albert Jacobs, was running late for work.”

    I didn’t realize drug pushers had to punch the clock…guess he didn’t want to lose his corner.

  • Carrie Burton

    I am not particularly a ‘dog’ person, I like to play/pet them and then leave them behind as I go but my fiance however is a huge Pitbull lover. I have to say that I am a true believer that it is not the type of dog that you have to worry about ‘attacking’ it is THE dog itself. My fiance wants a dog so bad but I have fought against it. We have a 3 1/2 year old little girl, I swear she is some type of amazing. And having ANY type of dog, I am against it. I simply do NOT want to take the chance of my little girl being mauled, bitten, scratched, face ripped off, or ANY harm done to her what-so-ever. I have read so many cases of the ‘family dog’ being raised as early as a puppy turning on and killing adults & children. My fiance says “Oh you have to raise them as a puppy!” I say NO because that is bullshit. I ask him “What will happen if the dog turns on Jordie (our daughter) and rips her face off?” & he replies “Then I’ll kill it.” & I’m like okay… but how will that replace the damage that will already be done or God forbid the dog kill her! Killing it won’t make her come back or justify her face being ripped off. I am just against it all the way around. He may hate me for it but that is just a chance that I’m not willing to take as a mother.

  • Prominent Prozac

    Can somebody write a story about a Shih Tzu mauling somebody to death?
    Everybody is laughing now..but they’re the next breed..I can feel it. Every time my dog looks at me with her sweet little eyes..I know she’s planning something.

  • Eliza Berntsen

    You’re evil!

  • Prominent Prozac

    This is me proposing.
    Marry me bitch.

  • Sari

    You never hear about cats mauling their owners to death. Or eating their faces off….. at least while their owners are alive.

  • Miss_Ann_thrope

    We just rescued a pitbull puppy – he is 9 months old and such a sweetie face. He has thus far blended in well with our menagerie of pets and kids. Do you really think it is the breed? Is it something I should be concerned about? The only things mean about this dog so far are his farts.

  • Evan

    please elaborate on that is he a famous drug pusher?

  • Evan

    tell him to get a dog when the kids are older – he’s an adult, he can wait a few years.

  • Laura_RT

    SMH I had to google mogwai…

  • Sarah

    I feel the same about my cats. Problem is cats are smart enough to make it look like an accident.

  • Carrie Burton

    Acutally my friend was attacked by a cat when she was younger and has HUGE scars now as an adult i mean scars inches long & at least half an inch thick.. ugly scars… and I once had a leather cheetah statue & my cat chewed its face off…. literally lol.

  • Sarah

    never underestimate the sneakiness of a cat

  • Sarah

    smh @ you ;)

  • Carrie Burton

    I don’t think its just the breed. Dogs are animals & ALL animals have instincts.

  • Carrie Burton

    That’s what I said, and even then I will still be sketched out about it.

  • Prominent Prozac

    Tough call.
    Kids have had animals for the longest time, and of course you aren’t going to read about the ones that have to be put down when they get too old, after being loyal faithful dogs, protectors.
    On the same flip, having a dog is always (ALWAYS) a risk..but then, isn’t any animal? You ever gonna let her have a dog? A cat? Anything? Animals do have perks, (I promise you this). You never are going to know what goes on in the mind of an animal (or person) when it snaps or has a “tantrum”, but you can’t just condemn’em all, you know? What am I saying though, you are being pretty damn logical. Hard to dispute.
    I think you’re right though, it won’t reverse the damage once it’s done. I could say “If you raised your child as a snotty, spoiled little brat..What would you expect her to be as an adult?”..But it’s not just in how you raise them. They are all unpredictable..Hell, who isn’t? Kids and animals are the top two in my opinion, both could kill you in your sleep and walk away while having everybody split on opinion about what’s “right or wrong” about what happened…or love you right up until you breathe your last breath.

  • Prominent Prozac

    Cats are just to evil for me.

  • Laura_RT

    No but they can do some serious damage when they want to. When I was a kid my we had this tom cat, he wasn’t fixed but he had had his front claws removed (no idea why those decisions were made). Anyway, because his front claws were removed, he wasn’t allowed outside. Well there was a a stray that was in heat that was outside and he wanted OUT. My mothers friend was visiting and when he went racing out when she was coming in/ going out she went to go get him. He attacked her and her arm took a brutal amount of damage. Had she been a child, it could have been crazy… and that’s with him missing his front claws. (I should say now that I’m actually partial to cats myself, but I’m just saying).

  • Laura_RT

    If you ever break down and give in, I’d recommend a Pekingese. I swear mine (fully grown) can just sit and gnaw on my fingers without really hurting them. I don’t worry about him just going crazy & hurting my kids cause it takes him ten minutes to make it through a saltine.

  • itsknotme

    Future dating may be a problem for this guy. Perhaps he should keep some Carcharodon carcharias? I’m sure his next GF won’t mind.

  • Laura_RT

    If you’re trying to get me to admit I don’t know that one either it won’t work.

    I should also quit feeding him after midnight. Seriously. He eats & then barks at the world in the backyard….just.in.case.

    Several years ago, we had rescued a 6 month old pit mix from the pound. She was the sweetest, most loving little girl. She loved to cuddle, and would even give us “hugs” by wrapping her front paws over your shoulder and lick your face. We had 3 other dogs so we watched them carefully and kept them separated when we were gone even though they never had any problems. After a few months, we stopped separating them when we gone for a few hours. Never any problems, until a few months passed. I came home and opened the door to find our cockapoo dog dead with the pit standing over her. The pit looked pure evil guarding her kill…. She looked up at me, and then in a split second everything about her body language changed and she was wagging her tail and jumping around, happy to see me. There was blood everywhere and my 2 bigger dogs were hiding and shaking. I never in a million years would have thought this could happen. I believed the whole “it’s how you raise them”…. But we loved the dog and treated her well, she was never abused. I was scared for my life in the moment when I walked in and realized what was going on…. One attack was enough and we had our pit put down. She had never shown any signs of aggression before and honestly looking back we should have always kept them separated when they were unsupervised… I’m just glad she didn’t attack a person, I wouldn’t have been able to forgive myself

  • Evan

    Chihuahuas are nice but they make bad drug mules

  • DeweyCheatam

    By that logic shouldn’t we be hearing about daily maulings by other large dogs, like shepherds, st. bernards, swissys, wolfhounds, etc.? Personally I believe there is something inherently problematic with pits and pit mixes, and I’ll never have another one. Not worth the risk, IMO.

  • Carrie Burton

    I had dogs as a child and cats and chickens and hampsters and birds and a pig even lol I love animals & I like dogs… My daughter actually has 1 cat & 1 kitten and she loves them.. plays on the porch with them, rolls around, and pulls their tails & the cat has slapped at her before but I cant say that I blame her. But my daughter likes small animals… she has been around our friends 2 ‘house pitbulls’ and one is real hyper and one is real calm… she doesn’t care for either.. she gets scared, she covers her eyes, she runs, she runs to me & wants me to pick her up.. once in my arms she will lean down to pet them but the fact of the matter is I still don’t trust them around my kid… I know they are harmless but they can sense/smell fear and some animals feed off of that. Her being scared just makes me stand more firm about my decision BUT when she is older and understands the facts about animals & understands that you cant yank their fur, ears, tails, etc and she wants one.. then how could I possibly turn her down for wanting a pet that I once have had. I just do not think it is acceptable right NOW. I do not disagree with your point at all. But me being a mother… I’m just afraid of loosing the one thing in the world that I love more than anything.. I do not want to risk her health/life for the ownership of a dog. My mother had an Austrailian Shepard when I was younger and I loved that dog.. had him since he literally came out of the womb BUT he did snap at me once while I fed him & I always was scared of him after that. I also had a rottweiler who followed me everywhere I went, we had neighbor dogs that would chase us down the street & he would protect us and fight them off… I’m not saying all dogs are bad & I’m def not pointing fingers at any breed.. I’m just trying to protect my daughter from the risk that I do not think she should be put at at 3 years old.

  • Leasha

    “People always need to remember their DNA is programmed to be aggressive,” No, you ignorant twat, ANY dog can BE aggressive, it’s not in the genes, unless the dog comes from a long fighting line. Not ALL pitbulls have “a taste for blood” and attack for the fuck of it. I can’t wait until the next breed is scrutinized, then the pits can get rid of their shit rap like rots, dobermans,etc.

  • tkaz

    They ain’t too bright, my cousins.

  • whateverme

    This was too funny

  • patrickdh10

    Here’s my tip,don’t own a Pit Bull unless you’re willing to accept a “Terrible Tragedy”.

  • The Bosses’ Secretary

    Ten years ago I bought an Australian Shepherd puppy for $500. It was a beautiful dog. But within the first week it started nipping and biting more than usual. Three weeks after I bought it the original owners showed up and the puppy went after them like a hell hound. It was a natural biter and in its lifetime it bit about ten kids. It loved to trap people on the front porch and go after them. People started avoiding our house because of the dog. I had to have the dog taken to a ranch because it became so vicious. At the ranch, it bit four people. In the end, the dog went after a truck and was run over. I’ll never forget how this supposedly friendly breed, which I had owned many of, became a vicious animal. You could never leave it alone with another kid or person. So many breeds can become killers, not just pits, although I would never own a pit because of the many personal stories I’ve heard from other owners. Sometimes the most placid breeds will birth a vicious animal.

  • Valerie

    Swissy?

  • DeweyCheatam

    Can’t say with absolute certainty, but yes, that looks like a swissy. Love love love those dogs.

  • willietrohut

    But she wasn’t a child and there are no tales like pitbull tales.

  • Valerie

    I know what he is lol, that’s my Aubro. A poorly bred Swissy. He is huge now, but I don’t have any big Aubro pics saved on the computer.

  • willietrohut

    This is the thing I keep trying to tell people when stating the case. The word is “unpredictable”. Proponents of pits will always argue that any other animal can do this. There may be another breed or two that you have to keep your eye on, but most don’t do the damage in such a savage and unpredictable way as a pit does. They should not be allowed to be bred for families and homes, imho.

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    Tick tick tick tick…

  • Malodorous

    Animal control took both dogs into custody and euthanized them. A necropsy will be performed to determine if a medical condition may have caused them to turn on Atkins. However, Forsyth County Animal Control Director Tim Jennings say they may never know why the male and female pit bulls attacked Atkins.

    And once again, the government will cover up the results of the necropsy… after all, they can’t disclose to the general public the existence of flaming portals to Hell inside the centers of the pits’ brains. It would cause riots if people knew the truth.

  • Malodorous

    It’s a risk. Life is filled with risks. Owning a pit bull is hardly a guarantee you will become the victim of a vicious pit bull attack. There’s plenty of anecdotal evidence from happy pit bull owners to confirm that, regardless of actual scientific studies that might measure the comparative statistical risk involved in owning one.

    Other breeds can be dangerous as well – there is no shortage of anecdotal evidence of that fact. A chihuahua may be pretty much laughably harmless to an adult or older
    child, but unsupervised around an infant? Potentially just as lethal as a
    pit, though it’s highly unlikely they’re statistically as dangerous.

    But, aside from the claims of greater aggression in pits, and the preponderance of unexpected attacks from previously benign pits who may very well have been raised and treated properly, the main issue I see is their powerful jaw strength, compared to other breeds, and tendency to remain clamped down on their victims, even after being killed – which means when they go bad, they are much more likely to kill than simply maim/disfigure.

    So it’s a matter of risk assessment. Are you willing to pay the price and take responsibility if things go wrong? I would say: educate yourself about the risks/dangers of the breed, and dogs in general, and thoroughly learn how to properly care for and train them. Consider whether or not they will be likely to get loose, or gain access to children, etc.

    Ultimately, it’s your choice. Ignore the people telling you you’re going to die horribly because you got one, and ignore the people who insist that only improperly raised/trained/fed/etc. pit bulls become dangerous.

  • Malodorous

    All pit bulls have a taste for blood. But they’re clever enough to refrain from displaying it most of the time, to keep us humans in the dark, and make us easier prey when they choose to strike.

  • Jubilex

    Any dog can snap and attack – *if* that happens would you rather take your chances with a dog that most likely won’t cause death – or one that is significantly more fatal? With kids involved my advice is never to have a dog that weighs more than 1/2 your smallest kid in weight – that’s not a guarantee against something happening – but if the dog is much smaller than the kid – the kid at least has a chance to fight it off.

  • BubblesinGriffinGA

    My uncle had a cat names Wuzzie Krueger…. He put two grown men in the hospital, and drew more blood than any dog I have ever known. He was the best cat in the world for those of us that he liked.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    You forgot Newfies.

    But I think you misread what I was saying. I was saying that if chihuahuas were bigger, we would hear about them mauling people every day, because they are vicious little pieces of shit. I’ve never been attacked by a big dog, but I’ve been attacked countless times by those little fuckers and their mixes.

  • DeweyCheatam

    Ok gotcha, sorry. Only thing I will add is that, little dogs, or other medium / large dogs, even if they bite, are far less likely, IMO, to cause the level of serious injury / fatality that pit/pit mixes will. Even if we could all agree that pits are no more likely than any other breed to attack, the fact is that pits have that locking jaw, so if they do attack, chances are better that it’s gonna be a worse situation than it would with almost any other breed. Again, just my opinion.

    That’s because cats steal your breath, so it looks like asphyxiation or natural causes to the authorities. Just ask @DDJaded:disqus. Plus they’re slowly driving our species insane with their Toxoplasmosis.

    I can think of two….
    My great Gran leaned down to feed my aunts cat & it went for her neck! Huge, deep scratches.

  • Teleute

    Stick to your guns. I was mauled by the family chow chow right in front of my mother when I was four years old. Needed plastic surgery (at age FOUR!) and still carry scars. The real kick in the ass is that it had previously attacked me when I was 18 months old (have a scar from that too), but my uncle had luckily been right there to scoop me up and away.

  • Defafan

    Pits are dangerous, it’s in their DNA and nothing can change that. Thugs are just going to keep breeding them and fighting them until they end up in a shelter and either taken home by an ignorant family/person or euthanized. Even pit mixes are dangerous, I speak from experience working at a shelter. NOT family dogs. Ever.

  • Prominent Prozac

    My boyfriend is one of those extremist retards who drank the kool aid and thinks
    all large dogs (especially pits) are spawns of Satan (Yes he fucks me..blind fool)
    and I just press that any person can snap just as well and nobody knows why. It just happens sometimes, really. I always wanted a big dog, but it never came about. I had a Rotti’ growing up as well, most passive animal I have ever seen/owned. Wouldn’t think twice even now if she was living to stick my hand in her mouth to take away something she was chewing on..but was bit in the face by my grandma’s small dog. I got a laugh last week..My little shih tzu tried to bite my boyfriends fingers off (in her defense, she doesn’t like to be moved from my side, sweet little bitch) and here he is trying to wipe out all big dogs. I think where I’m going with that is no, you don’t know they’re harmless because they aren’t. You know that. Those dogs may hurt her, and nobody would say they saw it coming. All animals have the potential to be harmful, or sweet, but in keeping with your logic, why put her in danger ever by buying a dog? Or yourself really. (I have a dog, but I like to live dangerously with few friends, that means if she ever seriously injuries me I can rot here alone) We’ve all agreed the animal can just snap off, so it doesn’t matter if she doesn’t pull its tail or whatever. I’m totally getting what you’re saying, and trust me, you didn’t hear me say I’d have a dog around my kid either should the time come..I’d send mine away, it might disturb my dog ;) I just wonder where you draw the line. The scars and stuff with the cat, that was mentioned before, aren’t those just as real risks right now for harm?

  • Delaney3030

    I have a rat terrier. hahaha ha ha ha hahaha.

  • Prominent Prozac

    Pretty sure they dog a lock jaw thing (Pits) and that’s what really messes you up.
    And I can’t agree. Last weekend my dog almost bit off my boyfriends fingers, she’s a sweet little thing..but the damage is generally bad depending on where any animal goes for. He might not lose his entire face if she rips into it, but walking around with half a face would be the shits.

  • Delaney3030

    it’s no use they know what we are thinking.

  • Prominent Prozac

    Can you rot or something? My friend has five dogs in her home, and a 5 year old. 3 of which are pit breed, one of which just had 8 cute little puppies..and I have never seen nicer dogs. Pretty sure her 5 year old is scarier and there’s a world full of pre-k teachers who would agree.

  • Prominent Prozac

  • ShelbySP

    Oh my god, ME TOO. I have never been bitten by any other dog, but I have been bitten by 3 Chihuahuas. They have the shittiest temperament of any dog in the world, if they were the size of pitbulls we would literally have 100 of these stories a day.

  • Malodorous

    So what you are saying is that we need to convince stupid people to cross-breed chihuahuas and pit bulls? Excellent plan! I’m on board with it.

  • ShelbySP

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the book of revelation begins.

  • Malodorous

    Awwwww, he’s so adorable!

  • Savanah

    I was attacked by a cat too, just deep scratches though. They healed and it didn’t do enough damage to kill me or anything, but that cat was so evil. I could tell when it looked at me. It wasn’t my cat. I’ve never had any problems with any other cat either and they happen to be my favorite animal. I agree with someone who said it’s the particular animal, not the breed. Just like there are evil, aggressive humans…

  • Malodorous

    LOL, upvoted for laziness.

    The first cat I ever lived with was in the first apartment I moved into when I moved out on my own. (My parents weren’t fans of cats, I guess, and my brother’s strong allergic reaction to cat dander sealed the deal. We had chihuahuas and later on, keeshonden.) My friend/roommate had previously lived with his high school buddy, who moved his girlfriend in with two completely undisciplined terrors (3 and 5 years old, I believe) each from a different absent father… These were the kinds of kids that literally did stupid shit like stick sandwiches into the VCR (this actually happened, apparently, and it was a TV/VCR combo to boot) in front of their mother and she’d just laugh with them about it – they terrorized that poor cat for the first eight months of her life.

    Anyways, this cat was friendly, but her idea of playful interaction with humans always seemed to involve claws, as a result of her psychological trauma, I guess. I’d be sitting in the recliner watching TV, minding my own business, with X nowhere to be seen, and suddenly I’d hear her running down the hallway at top speed, from the back of the apartment, and she’d launch herself into the air towards my head with claws extended. Eventually I just learned to raise my arms defensively in front of my face whenever I heard her feet pattering. How I lack any scars is beyond me.

We had a pair of little weenie dogs try kill each other after living together for five years the only reason they survived is that I was there to stop them and I got severely bit several times. The vet said it was hormones and de nutted them both. no more problems and that has been six years ago. I would rather put people down instead of dogs.

  • hicusdicus

    You must have switched from pot to crack.

  • pagalalia

    Maybe dogs can have mental illness like people do, talking about your Aussie of course. That’s sad, they’re usually sweet dogs.

  • hicusdicus

    The worst tragedies I ever encountered was with humans who were trying to kill me. They got me pronounced DOA.

    I have an Australian Shepard and that is what they do.

    Pit bulls were originally bred as fighting dogs, for fighting dogs AND humans in a literal pit. Their DNA IS programmed toward the viciously aggressive side.

  • Otaylig

    Oh, I don’t know. I can’t recall hearing about anyone being mauled to death by a labrador retriever. Ever, and they’re pretty big dogs. Hell, I don’t think I’ve ever even heard of one biting someone. I don’t have a particular thing against pit bulls. They can be wonderful dogs. They do require more care and better handling than some other large breeds, and frankly, most people do a shit job of caring for pets, myself included (which is why I decided not to have any anymore).

    I wasn’t abusive, but my care of the last dog I owned tended to center around my wants. For example, I took my dog out for a walk when I felt like going out (and conversely, when I didn’t, he just didn’t get walked), I played with my dog when I felt like playing, and so on. Sure, he got fed, and he didn’t get beaten, so I was a “D-” sort of owner, just doing enough to keep him living, not being cruel, etc. So I gave him to the ex, and I think he’s a happier animal for it.

    I think this is true of most pet owners. It is simply an object in their possession, rather than another living creature with its own needs. For some breeds, food, shelter, and no abuse will be enough to keep them as a safe animal to be around. For pit bulls, I don’t think it is.

  • Stoibs

    It’s called selective breeding. The dogs were bred for fighting and hunting. Their build, attitude, and fighting prowess were made that way through years of selective breeding. There is a reason why each type of dog has a specific personality. It is in their DNA to be aggressive because we bred them to be that way not because people mistreat them.

    A 9-year (1979–88) review of fatal dog attacks in the United States determined that, of the 101 attacks in which breed was recorded, pit bulls were implicated in 42 of those attacks (42%).[31] A 1991 study found that 94% of attacks on children by pit bulls were unprovoked, compared to 43% for other breeds.[32] A 5-year (1989–94) review of fatal dog attacks in the U.S. determined that pit bulls and pit bull mixed breeds were implicated in 24 (29%) of the 84 deaths in which breed was recorded.

    Lol, having a certain breed does not mean you’re going to end up attacked. It just doesn’t. She could be attacked by a Rotti’, or anything else just as easily. You’re not the one to say what is a family dog, and what isn’t. I’m pretty smart (thanks) which makes it easy for me to figure out that just because society picks ONE dog to shit on, doesn’t make it true. You can make any animal vicious, if you like. Any dog could snap off, any cat can claw out your eyes..and any cute little ferret can chew off a kids set of digits. I wouldn’t be surprised if that kid is actually safer than the president.

    Lame joke. Bad timing. Form was all off.

  • Prominent Prozac

    Er, you’re under the assumption they have intact males, and that the mother and the puppies are not separated from the child/other animals?. This pack mentality you’re talking about isn’t even existing by the way. They’re extremely loyal animals, to the family as far as any animal goes. The environment is completely controlled as far as owning any animals go as well. Do you have the impression this is the ghetto or something where they have snarling animals on linked chains? It’s not the case.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    The puppies had to come from somewhere. Last time I checked, dogs were diploid, meaning that they need two parents to reproduce.
    Multiple dogs will develop a pack mentality. They’re a pack animal, duh.

    Cats are the reason the black plague was eventually eradicated in Europe. They were responsible for killing the rats that carried the type of fleas that were infecting people. YAY FOR CATS! I didn’t down vote you, btw.

  • The Bosses’ Secretary

    My other Aussies were lovers. They liked to nip at other animals, but they loved the children and the other people in the house, and they were great companions. My favorite dog of my lifetime was an Aussie. The dog I talked about was just plain mean. It bit the hell out of me when it was 18 months old – enough to almost require stitches. It was just a mean ass dog that loved to terrorize people. The original breeders accused us of teaching the dog to be mean. It grew up in a big family of people and the dog was just plain out vicious. It was an animal killer and a people biter. I always believed that Aussies were great dogs, and still do, but this dog was mean as hell.

  • patrickdh10

    I’m sorry to hear that you had such a horrible experience. Humans are truly more vicious than any other creature on the planet. Sometimes situations arise due to human depravity where one is lucky to have escaped alive as I can attest to. My point was Pit Bulls are unpredictable and dangerous regardless wether or not they were raised with love or hate as proven by the long list of fatalities they leave in their wake. Sad but true.

  • Jessie

    Is it me or does that chick look wayyyy older than 25? Like maybe 38ish? Looks like a frequent tanner, maybe that’s why….

  • Lena60

    Unfortunatey, the religious elite at that time, had all cats exterminated,( being spawns of the devil with their little pointy ears) Without cats around , the rats infested with fleas took over, the fleasd carried the black plague.Thats what I read anyways :)

  • Lena60

    They can have mental illnesses like people do. Also inbreeding can also be a factor.

  • Jessie

    You are correct! They finally realized that people who owned cats were the only ones who weren’t coming down with anything…

  • hicusdicus

    That’s what makes them so lovable.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    We got a Rotty who had been left in a yard for two years with another Rott. No socialization. My husband brought her home, and she was the best dog. Extremely loyal, lovey dovey, cuddly, playful, sweet, and a clown. We gave her a lot of love and attention, and she thought she was in dog heaven. Great guard dog. No one tried to get inside the fenced yard. We lived way out in the boonies. She would slam against the gate snarling and barking, and they backed off quick. She was nothing but a big bag of sweetness to us, though. She got cancer and had to be put down and I was heartbroken.
    I miss her terribly.

  • Stoibs

    Selective breeding can be used to breed for personality. Man has bred dogs for certain physical and/or personality characteristics since the first man made contact with that first wolf that was calm enough to approach. So if you breed two very docile dogs, you will most likely end up with docile puppies. If you breed aggressive dogs, then the puppies will most likely end up aggressive. English bulldogs, for example, have a couple of distinct personality types. This can actually be determined relatively early in a puppies life.
    English bulldogs still show some of the old fighting traits that were bred into them. Many will lower their chests at the sight of bulls. This is because they were used as bull baiters. The original Bulldog was more like an Old English bulldog today. But, through selective breeding, and using favorable personality traits, the bulldog is now one of the most docile pets you can have.
    There are pit bulls that have calmer personalities, but the majority are the most aggressive dogs because they were bred to be. If you selectively bred Pitts using the most calm personalities for the next 100 years then you would probably eliminate these undesirable characteristics. But, again, they have been bred now for many years to have the least desirable characteristics. It is in their instincts to be violent. Every ancestor in their genetic lineage was bred to be aggressive.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Turned her into jerky. She probably looked like a giant Schmacko to them.

  • pagalalia

    I know someone who rescued a Pekingese and the first day she had her she almost ripped her nose off her face, literally. She had to have plastic surgery. It may have been issues from the dog’s past, but they were originally bred as watch dogs. Not that they’re vicious or mean but not the most docile dogs. If you have kids a poodle mix is good IMHO. Not purebred so should be calmer, and little to no shedding. I love my Pomeranian but wouldn’t recommend one for kids, too skittish. It’s good to do research and know about different breeds, but it sounds like this guy wants a big dog. Labradoodle!

  • Inferus

    It’s simple. They were on the Atkins diet.

  • Laura_RT

    My Pekingese is the only one I ever been around so I can really only speak to his nature, but I’ve never met a more docile dog both toward humans and other dogs. And there is no way he could possibly bite anyone’s nose off even if he were so inclined. I’ve spent countless dollars trying to find a dog toy small enough he can fit it in his mouth to play with it. Still the only ‘toy’ small enough I’ve ever found is the lid to a gallon of milk, he literally can’t open his mouth more than a 1/4- 1/2 inch. Could be he’s unusual though, Idk.

  • Laura_RT

    Lmao…That was so obvious, I’m kicking the shit out of myself for not catching it.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Any breed can be dangerous. Breeds have tendencies…..docile, energetic, vigilant, etc. Why the FUCK cant people who own Pits, Rotts, Chows, etc accept the simple fucking fact that these breeds are more aggressive than others. And DON’T quote statistics unless you look at just the last 20 years since Pits have become common.

    Bad ownership? Bad training? Bullshit.
    Explain THIS story of a woman who “was a member of Bay Area
    Dog Lovers Responsible About Pit Bulls, a group that does its best to
    convince people that pit bulls aren’t really that dangerous”

    I actually read an article that said Dachshunds are the most aggressive breed….but like you said, too small to maul anything but your dirty socks.

  • FrikkenFrak

    My sister in law had a Chihuahua that was a nasty piece of work. Would bite your feet and ankles unprovoked. Finally one day I told my brother “You have a drop kick dog”. He said “A what?” I said “A dog I’m going to pick up like a football and drop kick to the goal post”.

  • FrikkenFrak

    I’ve never seen a Newfoundland as any repeat offender in harming humans. Aren’t they a very docile breed?

    Personally, it’s one of the breeds I fell in love with at my first dog show back in San Diego (soooo many years ago). They are stunning.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Damn. The first person I’ve ever come across who understood that their owning a pet might not be in the best interest of the pet. I’m in awe. Honestly. (And that happens rarely). You have my total and complete respect.

    Can you please travel around the country and convince other people to be as responsible and insightful as you? Please???!!!???!!!

  • hicusdicus

    I have 4 miniature dachshunds. You are absolutely wrong about the mauling part. For a little asshole of a dog they have huge teeth.

    Chihuahuas aren’t bigger though

  • Gail L Rosbach

    They do not lock their jaws..they refuse to let go. That’s what their genetics have them programmed to do.

  • Malodorous

    They look like albino keeshonden to me.

  • Kris Mikula

    If chihuahuas were the size of pitbulls and killing people daily I have no doubt we would still have nutcases defending them.
    What’s the magic number of deaths that must be reached before people start listening to common sense instead of the nutters?

  • McSeriously

    No, they were both female. The pit was not fixed but the other female was. They always got along so well together until that day. And since I wasn’t home at the time, I don’t know what happened :(

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Or the screaming end. A torso and a leg would be fine :P

  • hicusdicus

    I know I am retarded cause I own 7 dogs and two cats but I do live on 50 acres. 80 lb rotty another 50 ponder and 4 wieners and a chiuawwa half breed little bitch. I would venture to say the cockapoo started it. The female weenie and the taco with teeth are always challenging each other. I hope it never happens here but it could, they are animals. I have had to have 4 dogs put down. The were old and sick but it was still difficult.

  • Carrie Burton

    Hahaha and why is that? Because I want to protect my daughter? Everyone has their own beliefs about animals and what breeds are best, what breeds are worse.. I myself do not believe that it is any ‘certain’ breed. And I did not say that my daughter will never have a dog I simply said she is 3 years old and to have one right now… NO is the answer. You can call me an idiot but one day if you have kids maybe you will have a different outlook on the subject! I am a mother & I am supposed to PROTECT my child. I may not do it the same way as other parents but I do it MY way! And FYI.. so far.. it’s worked ;) Thanks for your input though it was certainly not appreciated.

  • Carrie Burton

    I had a chow as a child and if you ask me out of any breed of dog, I believe they are more aggressive. Mine wasn’t aggressive but from what I’ve heard when they bite, their jaws lock which is really scary. & Thank you for the support!

  • Carrie Burton

    Rottweilers are actually my favorite breed of dog. My mother has one and she rescued him as an adult dog.. He is seriously the best dog we have ever had.

  • Buffettgirl

    I’ve never even seen anything about a Newfie attacking anyone or anything, E.V.I.L. said in her post “You forgot Newfies.” so I was responding to that part. I loved having her, but all that long hair would annoy me now… I got a little OCD-ish later in life! ;)

    I know a woman that raised her pit bull from puppyhood. She was the sweetest, wannabe lapdog you would ever meet. One day, she pit her owners 1 year old daughter in the face. The daughter was fine, just a couple puncture wounds, but she decided to keep the dog. Took her to the vet, had her thoroughly examined to be sure nothing was wrong, and everything checked out. Not even two months later, she bit the neighbor’s daughter in the face, ripping off a chunk off of her nose. Thankfully, it was stitched back together and there was minimal scarring. The dog was put down after the neighbor’s threw a fit. They knew the dog had previously attacked the baby unprovoked and knew it would probably attack again. The owner told me that she would have kept her even if she had attacked her own child again. Some people are just not right in the head.

  • disqus_qIJU98e9Uq

    This is why I refuse to own or get near a pitbull. Even if these dogs aren’t trained to be aggressive, it’s just who they are. Not all pitbulls but a good amount. I think in Miami-Dade these dogs are illegal to own

  • Jycorro

    My Lab / Blue Healer mix is an asshole. I treat him that way and so far no baby killings. I don’t trust him around strangers as far as I can throw him. He gets kenneled when I have guests. I would not recommend breaking into my house.

  • paleblueeyes24

    Yep I accept that my dog breed is a yappy, needy little thing (maltipoo) but I love him for it!!!

  • paleblueeyes24

    No a maltipoo!!!!

  • paleblueeyes24

    I learned how to walk because of my 1/2 golden retriever 1/2 lab that our parents got us for Xmas one year (as a puppy). I would pull up on his fur and he would slowly walk me around and would keep his body in between any dangerous things like tables. Just like all animals it depends on their personality. Humans are animals too and a child is way more likely to be harmed or killed by a human than a dog. I’ve had many pets and none have ever been aggressive. Oh wait I retract that statements. My mom rescued a cockatiel named Manuela and that bird would bite the heck out of you.

  • Vince Pardue

    I’m really sorry to hear about Ms Atkins death. However, it is completely untrue that bull terriers are genetically wired to kill or be aggressive. It’s a complete lie. Bully breeds are some of the most loyal, loving, protective dog breeds. These dogs either weren’t trained, or perhaps used to playing rough with their handler and got carried away, or they weren’t neutered. Dogs do not attack their own family members for absolutely no reason. My condolences to their families & friends.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    This came from DogsBite.org. That’s pretty scary to me. Numbers don’t lie.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Well, it didn’t show. It said that last year, pit bulls were responsible for 61% of dog bites. Rottys were second at 8%. Seeing it on a graph brings it into perspective.
