The fault lies with both the breed and the owner
Re: “The owner, not the breed, is responsible,” Our View, Jan. 11
It takes a certain kind of person to choose a dog with a propensity for extreme aggression. Maybe with the right owner and training rottweilers and pit bulls can be trained to behave nicely. But we have to ask why a dog owner that wants a friendly, gentle dog that can get along with other dogs and children in the city would ever choose “vicious” breeds?
There are hundreds of different purebred and crossbred dogs available. It says something about the dog owner when they choose one of the few breeds with a history of violence and aggression instead of one of the many breeds that have earned a reputation for gentleness and non-aggression.
