“True . I volunteer for a rescue and AC. Most of the dogs currently in shelters and at animal controls are pits and chis because so many are bred. People get chis thinking they will be good pets for children and find out differently and so these animals pay with their lives because of the ignorance. Black dogs are the first to be euthanized and last to be adopted. We call it black dog syndrome. However black labs make the best pets for children over chis. We have chis and chi mixes coming out of our ears.”

“That is not true. I was attacked by a black lab so please do not state that this dog is the best for a demographic. There is more to dog aggression than the breed. It has nothing to do with the breed of the dog.
Also, the above poster is just as ignorant in their assumption that because many pits are in shelters there is something wrong with them. many are there due to over breeding from the dogs being so popular and other components.
Pits get a bad wrap. I have a staffordshire/beagle mix who is an amazing dog with a great temperament and loves kids. Yet someone like you and the above poster would take one look at my dog and because she doesn't fit your ideal of the labrador, would hate her.
There is no scientific evidence that states aggression is purely a breed trait.”
“No it is Christmas and into January when most pets are surrendered. Many people do not want to deal with their animals during the holidays. Sad but that is the reality. More are euthanized at AC because there is no room.”
“No one should have an assault weapon. Military and police use only. I am ashamed of our country.”

“Since you appear to know so much about firearms please tell us EXACTLY what an assault weapon is. Please also explain the differences between an "assault weapon" and ANY magazine fed semiautomatic hunting rifle.
I will be patiently awaiting your response.”

“And the police are the last people I would trust with an assault weapon. Or did you not follow the Dorner chase out here?”

“The number of people with assault weapons is very low due to the NFA regs in place.
You simply do not know what you're talking about.”

“I have a .401 winchester made in 1910. It has a detachable magazine and is semi automatic. It's been in my family for over 100 years and has kept us fed all those years. By the way, it has never hurt anyone. Why should I not have it?”
“GS are awesome dogs. None that I have seen at AC have done well at AC.”

“Best dog I ever had the luck to own was a German Shepherd. Smart, loyal, loving and incredibly tolerant of small children. Sheba was the best dog I've ever had the grace to own. I miss her and still dream of her occasionally and it's been over 40 yrs. She truly touched my soul. Miss you, sweetie. For always.”
