All those headlines make me sooo mad, but for a different reason. The animal shelter can't even accurately identify a dog's breed, so who the heck is qualified to decide what breed all of these "attack" dogs are? It's so stupid, and totally nullifies the validity of dog bite statistics. And Dakotah, you can get a rottie within the standard that is the same size as a lab. There was a house that burned down on the news last month, and a "hero dog" saved the family by getting them out. They said he was quote "some kind of mix". Then they showed a picture. he seriously looked like a pit bull with uncropped ears. You KNOW that if he had bitten someone he would have been a "killer pit bull", but because he saved his family's lives he was a mix.
