15 Reasons Pit Bulls Should Totally Be Banned Forever

Breed Specific Legislation (or BSL) is still very common and widespread across the country. Proponents of BSL say Pit Bulls have inherent characteristics that make them dangerous, that these dogs should be banned from hearts and homes around the world forever.

Still many argue against banning them.

Here’s the truth about the inherent nature of Pit Bulls:

They look better in your clothes than you do.



They’ll definitely steal your spot on the couch.

They’re always baring their teeth at you.



Good luck getting any work done with this beast in your seat.


When you leave the room for a minute and he steals your seat 😂#cute #pitbull

They hog the remote.



They obviously can’t be trusted around other dogs.



And, don’t even dare let them around a cat!

    As a dog trainer and proud parent to 4 pit bulls, this is one of the least informative/ useless articles Ive ever read about the breed.
    Cutesy and how many "likes" one can collect on social media has done nothing to help the breed or its reputation.

    Healthy, obedient, balanced and social dogs seen in public is what changes minds, those changed minds force government to move away from useless legislation like BSL.

    Wonderful post! Anti-BSL education is essential to breakdown harmful stereotypes. Since volunteering at a shelter for over a year, and having two pitmixes for five years, I have learned a great deal about the breed, the need for training (of all dogs), and education (of all people).

    It is unfortunate that this breed has been given such a bad reputation because of irresponsible humans.. Humans should be the ones banned!

    I personally don't have anything against pit bulls, per se. If they are raised properly, they are loving and wonderful pets. I have several friends who have had great success with their pit bulls. IF they are raised properly, most work out fine.

    It is a shame when there are a percentage of people who mistreat these dogs and encourage them to be mean and it gives the breed a bad name. I have a friend right now who is in ICU with severe injuries from 2 pit bulls that were not raise in a loving manner. She has a long road to recovery, but her spirits are high. This was a situation of the dogs were loose and she was walking with her 7 year old son. She got blocked the dogs from getting to her son, but was attacked in the process.

    I am a dog lover bigtime, but my person experience with a Pit Bull recently was very bad. I was out walking my Welsh Corgi, on a leash (Roscoe, not me) when out of nowhere came 2 Pit Bulls running loose. Without provocation, not even a bark from my dog, one of these Pits attacked my dog! It was a really scary experience. Long story short, Roscoe suffered a puncture wound, and with antibiotics and pain meds, he has recovered, physically. He's still very antsy, but I'm hoping that will fade in time. Didn't have an opinion one way or the other on the reputation of the Pit Bull before this attack…….I do now.

      Your thoughts are just as ignorant and blind as the people who keep that ignorant stereotype going. That could literally have been any other breed of dog, the fact that you automatically assumed that all pits are like that simply because you had ONE bad experience makes you nothing more than a sheep. It also shows how shallow and simple-minded you are.

        You are the complete ignorant idiot. If two pits attacked my dog, I would certainly be fearful of the breed. I guess if that "one bad experience", was say his child or himself being attacked,he'd also be a sheep. You give pits a bad name.

      Im not one to tell another what to do, but… you may want to consider that NOT EVERY PIT BULL attacked you and your Corgi.

      In the course of my work (Dog Trainer), Ive been attacked, bitten and nipped more times than I can count. And no one breed dominates the statistics. Ive taken it from Pit Bulls, German Shepherds, Corgis, Chihuahuas, Spaniels and many more. I do not blame the breeds… rather, that particular dog… and then not even the particular dog… rather, what that particular dog has endured from human imposed abuse and neglect.

      As our American culture is currently grappling with "To discriminate against Muslims or to not discriminate against Muslims".. not every Muslim in the world was involved with 9/11 and other incidents around the world. Not every Pit Bull is a menace, despite what an opportunistic media or agenda-ridden government tries to shove down your throat.
