    • Me too Jim. The only dogs that have ever gone for me .... apart from two legged ones ... have not been of a particular breed.
    It is the owners of vicious dogs that need muzzling. Idiot.

    I was only ever bitten once by a dog. My aunts Pug, so I consider Pugs to be dangerous, so why are they not on the list ?.

    The nastiest dog I ever knew, and I've met a few. Was a Red Setter! The second was a Dachshund, it would rip you apart if you went near it when it was eating.

    Staffies can be one of the best pets ever. I've owned GSD's all my life. Its not so much the muzzle requirements, they can make whatever rules they like. It's the condescending comments of the know-nothing politician that irked me, but then I suppose that's nothing new :)

    Why?
    All those dogs if they got a grip of a kid would most probably kill them
    Little terriers etc might give you a bite but extremely unlikely to do major damage so I agree with the guy what makes people think they are ideal house pets
    I accept that owners in nearly all cases are to blame, however you can't trust a human so what makes you think dogs can be trusted especially dogs that can and have killed

    I think that the vast majority of the people who commented did indeed make their feelings well known. The man is an idiot

    Well, Agree with a bit of what you say as bigger dogs give a bigger bite, but what about Great Danes, St Bernards, Salukis, large crossbreeds, etc., etc....... you get the point. The issue with this is the ignorance and narrow minded attitude of the man himself

    To take your argument further, your words but I've substituted a few :doh:

    All those cars if they hit a kid would most probably kill them
    Bicycles etc might not hurt as much and extremely unlikely to do major damage so I agree with the guy what makes people think cars make good transport

    I accept that car owners in nearly all cases are to blame, however you can't trust a human so what makes you think cars can be trusted especially cars that can and have killed

    A pug, what with its gums snowbird :LOL:, we have a Frenchie similar who also have little fartie teeth, now get a bite of any above and you will know about it
    It's a bit like guns if I shot you with an air rifle it would hurt, if I shot you with a Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum your probably dead but still both firearms(y)

    Really, Not seen any deaths from both the dogs you mention, but seen plenty of kids/adults killed by the others

    My Pugs would give you a nasty licking,
    Never a bite, couldn't see them doing any damage.
    As already said its the owners that are a problem not the dogs.

    There aren't many German Shepards left that can actually run fast enough to catch up with a running kid, let alone bite them.
    The Kennel Club's breed standards have seen to that!:)

    Talk about moving goalposts, there in another field now
    First cars are not a living thing so they can't think for themselves, unlike a dog that's off a lead that's why they can't be trusted
    Not a very good analogy Jim, :doh:

    My only issue is with his condescending remarks. Many of the breeds in his sign make excellent family pets.

    Alan Tobin needs muzzling, silly man!
    It's not the 'breed' but the owner that determines a Dogs temperament. For years had Dobermans. They were the softest daftest pair of dogs and great with children. We bred the female. I thought I'd vetted the buyers well and asked should they change their mind that I would take the dogs back. A year and half one came back. He came back called Satan, wearing a big stud collar, had been kept shut up and the owners couldn't understand his bad behaviour. It took me a good couple of years of hard work to 'normalise' him again. I would never breed dogs again knowing that they may end up with irresponsible owners.

    We're still looking for a GSD pup. Looked at a couple of local litters recently but nothing took my fancy. Looking at another litter next week :)
