Pit Bull Myth of the Week- 1

From now on, I will be posting a pit bull myth of the week on Sunday of every week. In the myth, I will state the myth- and break down why it's fact or why it's BS.

The first one is:

MYTH: A Pit Bull that shows aggression towards an animal will go for people next.

This is false because, let's face it people, human aggression and people aggression are NOT the same thing. And, please, don't believe they are.

"Many working breeds have antipathy towards other animals - coonhounds go mad at the sight of a raccoon, foxhounds will not hesitate to tear a dog-like fox to shreds, greyhounds live to chase and maul rabbits and even dog-like coyotes. Even the ever-friendly beagle will slaughter a rabbit, given the chance. And yet the greyhound, coon and foxhound and beagle are among the friendliest of breeds towards humans. And it is the same with the pit bulldog. His work through the years has been control of other animals - never humans. A correct pit bull is more often than not submissive toward all humans, and adores children. A pit bull that snarls, lunges or growls at non-threatening humans is NOT typical of the breed." (Written by Diane Jessup)
Pit bulls that do show aggressive behavior towards humans are not typical of the breed and should be humanely euthanized. (from pitbulllovers.com)
