    The truth of the statement makes it all the more depressing.
    I swear, any semi-stocky short-haired dog is a pitbull, especially if it bites, growls, or barks.

    Allow me to pick apart this article for a moment.

    This is a woefully inadequate description. Gameness, while the true definition is subject to debate among the APBT community, is not just a "willingness to fight", it is what keeps the dog going through pain, a stubbornness and determination. There are many dogs that will fight but are not "game".

    By this logic no-one should have dogs bigger than 20lbs, because even 35lb dogs are VERY strong when they are determined. I've seen a 6ft tall man almost get dragged to the ground by a 40lb lab mix who wasn't leash trained. Dogs are kept under control by training, not by our size or strength. Also, way for the author to come off as sexist.

    Thanks for perpetuating false information and making any activity a pit bull owner does with his or her dog appear to be a criminal activity. And what does the writer mean by "bite work"? Is he referring to PP/Schutz? Is he referring to the "bait dog" lies spread by HSUS (thus encouraging it to actually be practiced)?

    Yes, because outlawing the use of a TOOL always works to solve the underlying problem!

    I would say about 90% of the article is decently written, but the author should really do more research.
