I feel sick

Pitbull Runs Off Porch In Point Breeze, Fatally Attacks Dog On Walk - Pittsburgh News Story - WTAE Pittsburgh

This is right down the street from our house. I already stopped walking my dogs in the neighborhood we live in, because of a different dog aggressive this. We don't live in a bad neighborhood, we're walking distance from a large park and moved here because it's so dog friendly. My heart goes out to the people who lost little Carmine, so tragic.

I'm not going to get into the subject of breed bans, but pitbulls are becoming a bigger issue all the time around here. Yes, any dog can be aggressive and just about any dog can be wonderful if properly trained and socialized, but pitbulls really do need to come with a warning. Most people do a poor job training their labrador or shih-tzu, generally you can get a away with some mistakes with those dogs, there's just no room for mistakes with a dog as powerful as a pitbull.
