Depending in the time you grew up in, you were terrified of certain dog breeds. In the 1970’s, dobermans were seen as callous and an overly aggressive breed. The next decade, the German shepherds became known as attack dogs who would lunge at their victims on command. By the 1990’s, however, the Rottweilers took the spotlight as vicious, killing machines. Part of the reason these muscular, strong, and intimidating breeds received such a bad reputation is that their owners often raised them to be aggressive with the slightest provocation. In the last decade, there are stories after stories of pit bulls and their often deadly encounters with humans. Time and time again, it has been discovered that pit bulls like every other breed are malleable to their owners breeding and raising purposes. Any dog can be dangerous and lethal under the care of the wrong person.The five-year-old was attacked by the neighbour’s dog, a Labrador retriever mix.
