I have a Red Nose Bull Terrier who is loving and has never shown aggression towards anyone or even another animal. The Stigma placed on PitBulls saying they are all a dangerous animal and should be banned is so far from the truth. Scientific related studies show that in the latest scores PitBull Terriers have scored Excellent in the top 23% for temperament.
ATTS TEMPERAMENT TEST SCORES AND DATA
American Pit Bull Terrier score: 87.4%
American Staffordshire Terrier score: 85.5%
Staffordshire Bull Terrier score: 90.9%
Average score for the 3 individual pitbull-type breeds (listed above): 87.9%
Average score for the 130 breeds included in this statistic: 82.7%
Number of breeds (out of 130) that scored lower than the average score for pitbull-type breeds: 100
Average score of 87.9% for the pitbull-type breeds is in the top 30 of 130 breeds tested (or top 23%).
"There is no evidence that breed-specific laws reduce dog bites or attacks on people and they divert resources from more effective animal control and public safety initiatives. Breed-based policies are based on myths and misinformation, rather than science or credible data".
