Be a pitbull, easy

You might automatically assume that the breed is a pitbull or similar known ‘dangerous’ breed. But, a quick google of dog attacks demonstrates that ALL dog bite. The dog that bit a little girl in a Bunnings, shortly after that store chain opened its doors to dogs was a Jack Russell terrier. The dog lover in the USA that was killed by her “children” (dogs) was killed by a French bulldog.
Dogs treated like they aren’t animals seem more likely to attack than dogs that are treated like dogs. Treat a dog like it’s equal to humans won’t make the dog think it’s human. It will make the dog think that humans are dogs.

Check the stats. Pitbull bans save lives/limbs wherever they are implemented. FACT! Do your research…
