How silly, Missile! My dog is a Jack Russell ... less suited to urban living than most of the larger breeds. Her energy level is off the charts, she's a natural born hunter, likes to bark and is far more likely to bite than any other dog I've ever owned. Oh, and for the record? I never go anywhere without a pooper scooper bag, never let my dog run free when she could dash in front of vehicles or hurt other small animals (except squirrells if she could catch the damn bird-eating rodents) and am a responsible pet owner. You even have a dog????
Your assumptions are absurd. Shoot, many humans are best suited to the country! A few, like me, prefer the asphalt comforts minus the bugs and outdoor plumbing, but me and Woody Allen are a minority. If we're going to start placing all the mammals in their most appropriate habitat we've got a big job ahead of us.
Read back in the thread. I won't bother to repeat what's already been said, but I suggest you take the time to look at it.
Breed banning does not work. Particularly banning pitbulls since they are a cross breed and not readily identifiable. Many dogs are mistaken for pitbulls, many pitbulls slip under the radar because they don't look like the pic posted above.
Instead of worrying about dogs, I'd suggest our government has more pressing issues to address.
