Former reality star Kate Gosselin is the latest “celeb” to step in the ring against pit bulls.

The breed has been the target of a lot of negative attention lately, from Kelly Ripa’s comments that pit bulls are dangerous, to the poisoning of puppies at an awareness event to a “hate walk” scheduled in Arizona.

And now Gosselin has taken to Twitter to spread the perception that pit bulls are inherently dangerous.

The situation came to a head when Liz Janetta, who is now dating Gosselin’s ex Jon, shared photos of some of the “Kate Plus Eight” star’s children cuddling with the dogs.

“The most pure and genuine kind of love & affection,” Janetta tweeted, sharing a photo of some of the Gosselin daughters hugging Janetta’s pups. This immediately sparked outrage in the Twitterverse, with commenters complaining that it wasn’t safe for kids to be around pit bulls.

Jon Gosselin's new girlfriend shared photos of the Gosselin children cuddling pit bulls.

Janetta defended her pets, writing, “My kids r around pitbulls every day.. Frm Dobies, to German Shepherds to Rottweiler, now Pits- the desire 2 blame wil nvr fade.”

However, that didn’t stop the backlash, and some commenters suggested that Gosselin would be upset if she knew about the photos.

“Sure u want 2 be stiring things up Liz..or u wouldn’t be tweeting another woman’skids with pit bulls..Yes did U have permission?” someone wrote.

Janetta immediately fired back with, “permission from…. Twitter?? Yes, “another woman’s kids” also the children of my boyfriend. Kindly… Keep comments to urself plz.”

This was enough to prompt Gosselin to step into the fray. Although she didn’t write her own anti-pit bull comment, she did retweet one to her followers that said, “Children who were victims of pit bulls Take a look & see why people care.” The tweet also included a link to the aforementioned hate walk site, which encourages people to “walk for victims of pit bulls and other dangerous dogs.”

Gossip site Celebitchy points out that this isn’t the first time Gosselin has run into trouble with dogs. According to the site, “[Gosselin may have] physically abused and neglected the family dogs, two German shepherds, before eventually returning them to the breeder. She’s not a responsible or caring pet owner to say the least…German shepherds can be aggressive if they’re mistreated, so Kate probably risked her kids’ safety much more by beating on their poor dogs, but I wouldn’t expect her to realize or acknowledge that.”

It’s disappointing to see someone in the public eye spreading misinformation about pit bulls and other “dangerous dogs.” Here’s hoping Jon Gosselin and his new girlfriend can educate Kate about breed stereotyping.

    Walk against dangerous dogs? What? I have two pit mixes and they are great family dogs, never any aggression My daughter was mauled by a golden retriever…guess golden’s are a “dangerous dog” that folks should march against. You can’t base it on breed, each dog is an individual.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jerryyvonne.andrews Jerry Yvonne Andrews

      Agreed, I was attacked by a “family” chocolate lab. Staples, stitches and scars that wont heal. But I don’t hate the breed…

    • Jesse

      no look at dog attacks by breed and u will see shitbulls are way on top and 80 percent of there attacks are on owners or family friends dumb fucking dog

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1659532860 Chris Ojar

    I bet it has nothing to do with the dogs; just a bitter woman who would do anything to make her ex look incompetent as a father. The dogs and children are fine. Nothing more than puppy love. If she doesn’t see it plain in her face, nothing anyone can say would change a bitter woman’s heart.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lrainha1 Laurin Rainha

      i agree. i think it’s to make jon look like a bad father

    So shes a whore, and shes branching out to biogtry due to stupidity or the lack of educating herself with research. Im putting my money on both, punish the deed NOT THE BREED! I know a few dozen sweet and loyal pits whose owners would LOVE to debate with you

  • http://www.facebook.com/etherslumber Michelle Holley-Palmertree

    Trying to boost your celebrity with bad press and taking a page from Kelly Ripas book won’t work. Pitiful that you’d rather try for another 15 minutes and have your kids hate you and talk about a breed of dog you have no experience with just to spite your ex-husband. You are ugly from the inside out.

  • http://www.facebook.com/diane.kristensen Diane Kristensen

    wow.. another idiot * celebrity* ..but then she always was an idiot. My kids have pitbulls around them and to be honest, they feel safe, protected and loved by these dogs. And as the pic shows…so do her kids… wake up you dumb ass and get to know a pit b4 u pass judgement on them

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jaloney-Caldwell/1281218044 Jaloney Caldwell

      Yeah until they go beserk and tear off the kids scalp and maybe a nose and an eyeball for good measure.. How does a mom apologize for that? Can’t.. so why take the risk? OH cause mama wants to be cool??? Mama is a fool.

      • people suck

        What about mankind? Im sure more Men/Women have killed other people than any breed of dog has. Not to mention how many human beings sexually abuse children. Its sad how so many people will stand up against a breed of dog but clearly the human race/breed is the most horrible.

    I have TONS of pictures of my kids (5 years and 9 months) with our pup, who just so happens to be an APBT, and she is the sweetest dog I’ve ever been around. Kate needs to get educated and start worrying more about her children rather than being in the spotlight. The picture above shows nothing but affection and love. She is disgusting in so many ways. Appears she will do anything to get attention… its sickening.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jerryyvonne.andrews Jerry Yvonne Andrews

    Poisoning puppies? I seriously would love to punch her in the face..

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1082078348 Jennifer Rescue

    This joke of a person, Kate G. is a ‘has been’. She is a nobody so who cares what she thinks anyway. She is so hell bent on staying in the limelight by any means possible, she will say and do anything. She is a joke, and her comments are not even worth people being so upset over. Look at the source and ask yourself if anyone cares what this basket case of a woman thinks anyway… I am sure the answer will be NO!!! Too bad her husband can’t get those kids… their mom is sure going to mess them all up for life.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ann-Fisher/1533920024 Ann Fisher

    What an uneducated bitch. I also don’t like the article referring to her as a celebrity, I mean really all she’s “famous” for is having 8 kids at once. Reality show people are not celebrities unless they were one prior to being in one of those shows. Not to mention most are staged for the cameras anyway. I think maybe we need a walk for reality show haters. Now that’s a walk I’d join in.

    • luvpets

      @Ann Fisher…thank you!!!!!!

  • Guest

    She needs to come face to face reality and realize she’s not a star and people are tired of her, instead of trying to spread Hate to make herself relevent.

    Kate Who?????

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Cheryl-Huerta/654958567 Cheryl Huerta

    Kate Gosselin is obviously a bitter ex-spouse who will jump on any train to get a chance to discredit her ex’s new love interest. OR maybe Kate simply doesn’t feel that her celebrity is as strong as it once was and is making an attempt to get back in the public’s eye.
    Regardless this woman needs to do a bit of REAL research before advocating against pit bulls, or anything for that matter, and then after she has true facts decide what side she’s on.

    I do feel though that this has very little to do with pit bulls or even dogs and has everything to do with being a childish, bitch of an ex-wife to Jon just because she can and just because she still has about ten people who might remember who the hell she is! Sorry to be brutal, and I’m usually NOT, but come’on Kate why don’t you grow up just a little bit and allow your husband to move on in his life???

    Maybe someone should organize a “WALK FOR IGNORANT PEOPLE”….

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jaloney-Caldwell/1281218044 Jaloney Caldwell

      Yeah it is ignorant, selfish and cruel to ignore all of the victims of ptbulls left on their own, with no recovery from the pitbull owners.. Victims begging to pay for massive medical bills, and hoping to come across enough money to pay for plastic surgery. I guess Monica you would belong at a walk for ignorant people.

      • amanda

        those pet owners should be held accountable for their pet…but NOT the breed! My sister owns a pitbull/boxer mix and she is the most gentle loving dog I have ever come across. So she should be what put down simple because she is a pit? Get a clue! Also where exactly did anyone say anything about ignoring the victims? I don’t recall reading that any where on here…hmm.

      • http://www.facebook.com/shauna.blackwood.50 Shauna Blackwood

        That is perfectly said! I have owned several pits and not one of them has ever been anything other than giant couch potatos. The love to play and love and be loved. Only an ignorant person would blame all pits for the actions of a few. For a long time Cocker spanials were number one on the bite list and I never heard of anyone trying to put down the whole breed.

      Yes you have proven that a lot of dumb people do exist.. as a hell of lot more than DOG BITES are happening to children mauled by pitbulls and it is happening nearly every day.. .. the attacks are so severe plastic surgeons are speaking out against the breed,, but heck you won’t listen to anyone but your groupies until ya know.. you are imprisoned by the actions of your dog or your kids is mauled or like Darla Napora you dog suddenly eats you…

        Awwww I am sorry you were stuck with parents who did not pay any attention to you so this is your only outlet, but I am not an owner of a pitbull but I support the breed as long as they have responsible owners. Proven facts are much more convincing for your case than the rubbish you speak!!!!!!!!!

No…that was me you accused of that. Or do you actually know of her childhood and these negligent parents you speak of? Or are you a pitt bull owner ? ..No..looks like you already answered that one..im sorry..Im just a intellectually challenged moron. Can you please tell me again what it is that you DO know?

    so there is seriously a hate walk? Really? I have owned pits and rotts and it is seriously misleading for people to misunderstand the breeds, its all in how you raise your animals, mine were pure bred lap dogs, they loved belly rubs and kisses behind their ears, sweet animals…..

      There was a *Walk for Victims* in Tucson a couple of weekends ago sponsored by Dogsbite.Org. It was in reality a hate rally, and fourteen people showed up. Half of those were the organizers. Dogsbite.Org has never given one red cent to victims of ANYTHING. Even victims saw through this fraud of an event.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jaloney-Caldwell/1281218044 Jaloney Caldwell

        It was a loving and kind show of support to people with common experiences… and some were scared awayfrom the event as there were threats of violence from pittie nut jobs.. but it was a great success and another victims walk is in the works so get used to it.. And the victims LOVED the support and opportunity to have their voices heard finally.

      • http://www.facebook.com/angela.johnson.5855 Angela Johnson

        Then why were YOU not there Jaloney? LOL! You were not even in attendance, so do not give people the impression you were one of the 14 people there. LOL! They did not even WALK…they hung around a table and that was about it. No vending, hand written posterboard advertising DUCT TAPED to trees, the band standing in the dirt with no audience. Very half assed poorly done flop. If it was about victims, why would you have pictures of bloody children at the event? You think THAT is what victims need? What a fraud.

    “KATE PLUS HATE”. Its pointless to try and change her mind, she barely has one. Its mainly people like her, (shallow, ignorant, etc.), that are incapable of realizing that its the dog owners fault if the animal has become aggressive towards people. Its never the animal’s fault. But she’s too fucking stupid to ever understand.

  • Valamondo

    This morning I drove past a jogger being attacked by two dachshunds that another woman was walking past her. The jogger was screaming, grabbing her left leg and bleeding. A study by Penn State lists the top three more aggressively behaved dogs – Dachshunds are in the top three; Pit bulls are not.

  • PrincessJamie0823

    If it was a real celebrity who anyone even cared about, maybe it would be upsetting, but its Kate Gosselin for God’s sake. The only thing she is famous for is spreading her legs to push out a basketball team, to much plastic surgery, having no rhythm, and being a bitch…So, I’ll continue to do what I always have, ignore her and not give her the attention she wishes for.

    if you think pit bulls are bad i recommend you marry someone just like this barking b!tc#… only thing we ever hear from her is complain complain complain…who could blame her husband for up and leaving… JUS SAYIN!

  • C-girl

    See Kate is still packing the big “L” on her forehead! I think she should stick to doing what she does best and just keep pumping out those kids! This woman makes me sick on so many levels!!!! We should have a walk against dangerous blondes who impact the world in a negative way. Leave the innocent alone and take your personal problems with your ex up in court. You and Kelly Ripa are 2 of the biggest idiots that ever made it on television.

  • http://www.facebook.com/clairepj1 Claire Jones

    What a Bitch. I love my pits. And like any dog, it depends on their owners. I am more scared of more Chihuahua’s than pits. Why? Cause there owners think they’re small and dont bother to train them so they go around biting people. My pit likes kids better than adults, but she is not aggressive towards people. Plays with all the neighborhood kids, and their parents arent even scared of her.

    the best way i have found to teach my children about dogs NOT ALL DOGS lets get that straight before some peroxide blonde jumps on the band wagon ….is that they are a lot like people the BIG ones are very often the gentle giants and the little fluffy ones are very often a bit like small man syndrme and are agressive to make up for their size and to always treat an animal ANY animal with the respect you want to be treated with ….. and while im on my soap box can someone let this female know that peroxide brassy blonde went out in the 70’s uuugghhhh get a grip on life love and do something worth while with your time take yourself off to a shelter / dog rescue and do a few hours voluntary work its so much more full filling than sitting on your ass twittering all day thats if your not too frightend to break a nail or two pppffttttt .

  • Heather Ryley

    As a shelter volunteer I have worked with dozens of Pitt bulls. Many of them had been strays. Most had been beaten, starved, abandoned and overall just mistreated by humans-both adult and children. Being part if intake I was one of the first people these poor dogs interacted with and despite all they had been through vary rarely did they ever show aggression and when they did it was out of fear. Can you blame them? If you did to me HALF of what these dogs had been through I’d beat the sh*t outta of the person but they would only growl and cower in the corner. HOWEVER I have been attacked/bitten SEVERAL times by chihuahuas, dachshunds, poodles and the occasional corgi and NONE of them had ever been abused. Sorry for the long comment but this irks me it’s just a bitter, old, desperate, woman sacrificing the Pitt bull’s, already, diminishing positive reputation of being loving and loyal JUST to get back at her ex whom she treated poorly in the first place. I hope her children don’t end up like her! DOWN WITH THE PITT BULL HATERS!!!!!!

PIT BULLS are super dogs – the ower of a dog is responsible for its behavior and if a dog has been bred to fight and been iltreated so that it’s behavior is threatening – PEOPLE are to blame – NOT THE DOG!!!

    We have two pit bulls in the family. One is the sweetest animal you will ever meet in your life without a mean bone in his body, the other is owned by my four year old granddaughter. He’s a little over a year old himself, is extremely careful around her and listens to her better than he does anyone else. Neither of these dogs will even chase a cat. These are very loving intelligent dogs who are only aggressive if abused or mistreated.

    It’s the OWNERS of Pitbulls that are HATED, not the breed of dog they regularly exploit. HATING those that have enabled many men, women, children and animals to be brutally attacked, maimed, mauled and killed is the most natural thing to do. Those who are attracted to fighting breeds of dog and have enabled decades of serious injuries and fatalities deserve to be despised and HATED.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jaloney-Caldwell/1281218044 Jaloney Caldwell

    It wasn’t a hate walk it was a LOVE walk.. LOVERS of safe sidewalks and children who grow up with their faces and scalps intact. Mortality, Mauling and Maiming by Vicious Dogs, Annals of Surgery, April 2011 found that pitbulls are removing a persons body part every four day nows, and their review of dog injuries in hospitals over the past 15 years found that pitbulls cause the most death, disfigurement, permanent disability, and the highest hospital charges of all dogs. In additon it found it is family loved, and unabused pits that suddenly attack and that they attack children unprovoked 2 and a half times more often than other breeds, and attack their owners 6 times more often than other breeds. In addtion the study found that you have a more than 2500 times higher chance of dying if attacked by a ptbull instead of Labador. yeah yeah the denial crowd will deny every fact these PhD’s uncovered.. Just like Darla Napora of the pit bull advocacy group.. some pitbull owners learn their lessons the hard way: Darla was killed by her raised from a puppy ptbull. Heck even Racheal Ray.. a millionaire with a paid handler for her pitbull had to pay off people after her dog attacked FIVE seperate times ON leash. Plastic surgeons are speaking out about pitbuls too cause they hold on and remove so much flesh they can’t fix the victims up again. Pitbulls are like cigarettes.. a fad that is for fools.. we have learned the facts about pitbulls and NOONE can predict which pitbulls will suddenly express their hidden fighting DNA.. so keeping pitbulls away from your kids is sensible, loving, kind behavior that Kate should be applauded for.. also for not being a wimp and bowing down to the pitbull bullies who group their loud voices together on an international basis forgetting that this still doesn’t make their voices larger than those who care about the common good for all. Miami Dade Florida showed pitbull groupies and politicans that they can make a lot of noise but locals want pitbull bans because they work. Miami Dade has not had a pitbull mauling in 23 years. All dogs do not bite, pitbulls Maul.

      Are you for real lady? Haven’t you ever seen dog whisperer? Mabye racheal and darla were weak dog owners? Or there could have been many factors as to why. But the major one is the onwers, and that is of any breed of dog! Mabye racheal shouldn’t be a dog owner if she can not control her animal! And yes all dogs are capable of biting, the real question I would be asking is why r they? I guess I’m just confused at your logic, any breed of dog can do damage if they have the maliscious intent to do so, so why are u picking on just pitties? Have you ever owned one, or any dog for that matter? Also there are many breeds of dogs that maul, maybe you should look that up. Hidden fighting dna???? Where the jell did you read that from, let me guess a tweet from kate right…lol. my major point is don’t jugde a whole breed, even. More so if you have never owned one or spent anytime with one!

I am well aware that owning a dog of this breed comes with certain responsibilities you don’t have when you own a calmer breed. However a pit bull is a DOG first and foremost and will follow a strong master. The biggest problem with pit bulls is ignorant and weak owners. People don’t realize a pit bull will easily scale a 6 foot fence out of boredom(which is why they shouldn’t be left in a back yard as a guard dog) people also don’t realize they require A TON of exercise and even more they require boundaries and strict rules. So I guess my point here is just because some dogs go bad doesn’t mean they are all inherently bad. Most times I believe the pits that get into trouble have owners who are not capable of handling them. Remember that racism comes in all forms…

    People that want to demonize Pit Bulls have it all wrong. Target puppy mills, target people that train them for fighting, imprison people that neglect their animals and allow them to become dangerous. But this is true for people that own German Shepards, Pugs, Poodles, Rotties, etc. If you own a dog, you have a responsibility to it and society to raise it right. And know the history before shooting your mouth off: Pits were one of the most popular breeds in the US (1800s to 1930s), and even used as nannies for children. They are very intelligent (mental ability of a small child) and require a master that isn’t lazy and will take the time to work with them, but this is true of all large working type breeds. As for Gosselin, she’s just a media leech trying to keep her name attached to something.

  • Sweetie Pie

    Typical pit bull fan: invent lies about anyone who states the facts about pit bulls. It’s a disgusting form of bullying. The only people who spread misinformation about pit bulls are the pit bull fans. That’s why so many children are dying and being disfigured by pit bulls nowadays. Fifteen killed so far this year, and the years isn’t over yet. Gosselin is right to be angry and right to speak out. Shame on you for only having lies and personal attack as a retort.

    Isn’t it funny how only pit bull owners and advocates try to twist a walk for victims into a hate walk. I guess it shows that they realize the truth of just how inherently dangerous these dogs are and so they scream and rage when ever anyone tries to help the victims of their dogs.

    HUGH WIRTH, veterinarian
    RSPCA Victoria president Dr Hugh Wirth said the dogs were a menace and were not suitable as pets for anyone.

    “They are time bombs waiting for the right circumstances.”

    “The American pit bull terrier is lethal because it was a breed that was developed purely for dog fighting, in other words killing the opposition.

    “They should never have been allowed into the country. They are an absolute menace.”

    “The fact of life is that the community doesn’t want American pit bull terriers. They’ve said it loud and clear over and over again – they want them banned.”

    Randall Lockwood, who said he has witnessed the best and worst of pit bulls, said illegal dog-fighting is perpetuating dogs that are hazards to humans and other animals. Shaped by dog-fight enthusiasts, they are “a perversion of everything normal dogs should do. What they’ve created is a canine psychopath.”

    “Fighting dogs lie all the time. I experienced it first hand when I was investigating three pit bulls that killed a little boy in Georgia. When I went up to do an initial evaluation of the dog’s behavior, the dog came up to the front of the fence, gave me a nice little tail wag and a “play bow” — a little solicitation, a little greeting. As I got closer, he lunged for my face.”

    The pit bull, in its purebred or mixed form, has been responsible for most of the fatal dog attacks on humans in the last two years. In 1987, there were eight deaths from dog attacks in the country, and seven involved pit bulls. In 1986, there were 13 deaths, seven involving pit bulls. But pit bulls have been victimized by hype.

    The dogs are no strangers to ordinances. A pit bull ban was passed in London in the 1400s.

    These dogs can be canine crocodiles. They have a dark and bloody history.

    In the United States, pets are considered property in the eyes of the law. And one of the most hotly defended rights of the individual is the right to own anything, no matter how stupid or dangerous the choice — even when what someone wants to own is a threat to them, their family, and the community around them.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jenny.spears1 Jenny Spears

    As someone who works in the veterinary profession, I will say I have never once in my career worked with an aggressive pit bull. They are typically very easy to handle once they stop licking your face. For the record, it the little shit dogs that people don’t bother to train that are the more aggressive and dangerous. We just had a girl go to the hospital requiring stitches because of a severe bite from a chihuahua that wouldn’t let go of her hand (all we were trying to do was give it’s annual vaccines!). People create the dangerous dogs, not the breed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jodi.morey Jodi Morey

    honestly like anybody really cares what Kate Gosselin has to say!!!! I mean really she couldn’t even be a reality star right.
    Also I have kids and pit bulls and my dog and my daughter are like best friends, I can honestly say that my dog would probably die for my daughter.

    The thing that upsets me the most about this is that the people that talk bad about pit bulls never even met one, they have never even been around a pit, at least not one that has a responsible owner that treats their dog right. And yet they sit here and say how horrible and dangerous they are based on what the news says or stereotypes. This is why when I start my veterinarian clinic and rescue I am going to open a education center to train people about pit bulls and show them how sweet they are and how to be responsible pit bull owners. And hopefully they can realize that pit bulls aren’t all bad

      I have fostered many pitbulls in my days and a majority of the time we would approach someone and they would fall in love with that dog. That is until I said it was a pitbull.

  • Kylie

    Jaloney and Jesse and every other ignorant person who has made ridiculous statements and posted their “facts”. Where exactly did you get these facts? Seems to me like they’ve either been taken off of anti-pit websites, from skewed studies, or even pulled out of your own asses.

    Simple facts are this: very, very few dogs can be breed identified based on looks alone – if they aren’t purebloods with papers and known lineage, then it’s a crap shoot. Even experts are hard pressed to give anything but a best guess – and even then, they are extremely frequently incorrect. Want to know what breed that dog is? DNA test. That’s what you are going to need. You are obviously going on the same theory as other dog-ignorant people – that any dog that even remotely *resembles* what you think is a pit bull therefore must be a pit bull. This is simply incorrect.

    The term “pit bull” is incorrectly used by the general public. Technically, that term only truly applies to three breeds of dogs, the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Thus, the vast majority of dogs deemed “pit bulls” by the general public actually are not. All that being said, however, the breed(s) are irrelevant – ANY dog can bite, maul, or kill. ANY.

    As for dog bites/attacks/maulings/fatalities: whatever source you are using for your quoted “facts” are terribly skewed. If you are looking at reports from animal control facilities, or police departments, or hey, I saw you were talking about emergency rooms…for one thing, you’re only seeing the *reported* incidents. For another, those reports are based upon what information was given. Directly related to this is the point above – someone goes to the ER with a dog bite and says a pitbull bit them – whether or not it actually was a pitbull – that is what gets reported. And most people in the general public cannot recognize the true breed of a dog. I have a neighbour, for example, that doesn’t even come close to recognizing a possible breed of any dog, ever. I have an Australian Cattle Dog and she truly believes she is part Husky, which she is not. So that simple fact of breed recognition is a huge factor in the inaccuracy of these “reports”. Also, as I mentioned, these statistics you quote are only the reported incidents. More people freak out over what they think is a pit bull than any other breed, so if the neighbour’s Pomeranian chased their kid and bit it’s ankle they’re far less likely to flip out over it. That’s simple fact, based upon misinformation and the same BS that you, and you, and Kate G. and Kelly Ripa and countless other ignorant people spread.

    Next, if you want factual statistics, the reliable sources would be the American Humane Association, who delivers statistics without breed partiality. They have no interest in whether one breed is considered more aggressive than another. Right on their website you can see the following information:

    Dog bite statistics:
    An estimated 4.7 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year
    Nearly 800,000 dog bites require medical care
    Approximately 92% of fatal dog attacks involved male dogs, 94% of which were not neutered
    Approximately 25% of fatal dog attacks involved chained dogs
    Approximately 71% of bites occur to the extremities (arms, legs, hands, feet)
    Approximately two-thirds of bites occurred on or near the victim’s property, and most victims knew the dog
    The insurance industry pays more than $1 billion in dog-bite claims each year
    At least 25 different breeds of dogs have been involved in the 238 dog-bite-related fatalities in the U.S.
    Approximately 24% of human deaths involved unrestrained dogs off of their owners’ property
    Approximately 58% of human deaths involved unrestrained dogs on their owners’ property

    Breed-specific legislation (BSL):
    In response to these statistics, many communities have enacted breed-specific legislation (BSL) that prohibits ownership of certain breeds, such as pit bulls, Rottweilers and others.
    Any breed of dog can bite, and research suggests BSL does little to protect the community from dog-bite incidents.
    In fact, BSL can often have unintended consequences — such as black-market interest and indiscriminant breeding practices — resulting in subsequent breed overpopulation that leads to increases in the number of homeless, stray and euthanized dogs.
    Enforcement of BSL has been shown to be very costly and extremely difficult to enforce. One county in Maryland spent more than $560,000 maintaining pit bulls (not including payroll, cross-agency costs and utilities), while fees generated only $35,000.
    Responsible breeding and ownership, public education and enforcement of existing laws are the most effective ways of reducing dog bites.
    American Humane supports local legislation to protect communities from dangerous animals, but does not advocate laws that target specific breeds of dogs.

    Dog bites and children:
    50% of dog attacks involved children under 12 years old
    82% of dog bites treated in the emergency room involved children under 15 years old
    70% of dog-bite fatalities occurred among children under 10 years old
    Bite rates are dramatically higher among children who are 5 to 9 years old
    Unsupervised newborns were 370 times more likely than an adult to be killed by a dog
    65% of bites among children occur to the head and neck
    Boys under the age of 15 years old are bitten more often than girls of the same age

    You can also look at the American Temperament Test Society studies, that does specific temperament tests on a wide variety of breeds, using every day situations. Currently, these are the results of their temperament tests on the three “pitbull” breeds I mentioned above. Of those tested, the percentage of dogs that passed the temperament testing were: Staffordshire Bull Terrier, 90% passed; American Staffordshire Terrier, 84% passed; American Pit Bull Terrier, 86% passed. Compare that to…as one example, the Bearded Collie, of which only 54% passed. Now those are facts.

    I could go on…but I think the point here is that the issue isn’t bad dogs – it’s ignorance, misinformation, irresponsible owners and irresponsible people in general. Kids need to be taught how to be around dogs, they’re not people after all. Parents need to be responsible and watch their kids, teach them, especially teach them not to taunt or harass – I have this problem in my own neighborhood. Horrible children being horrible to a neighbour’s dog, and saying the dog is mean – he’s not mean at all, but if someone treated me the way they have treated him, I’d probably bite them myself. Pet parents need to be responsible and train their dogs, not ignore them, not let them run free, not chain them, not abuse them. Put the responsibility where it belongs. On people.

    And next time you open your mouth, back up what you have to say.

    STUPID, STUPID BOTTLE BLONDE! Ignorance is NOT bliss dummy. Instead of trying to be in the “in crowd” why don’t you be a more intelligent and informed person. People in your position can do much, much good or major damage to anything they touch. In this case…….you just showed how stupid you are. Too bad for you.

    who cares, some washed up has ben is wanting some attention.
    I’ll ply along. ok, you don’t like pit bulls cause they’re evil, mean vicious. but whoever did your make up is a artist. And your ex is a bad father, but he’s at home playing with his kids while your crying all over the internet cuz he got them a puppy. Get a clue. Oh yeah by the way, most victims as you call them only get bit cuz they are completely retarded. hey look, a strange dog, let’s go piss it off and see what happens. Yeah some Pitts are mean. they are raised to be. they are called gard dogs. same with rotts Dobermans, and chows. are they bad dogs too? or just good at their jobs unlike you. if you had tallent then you’d be working, not tweeting dumb stuff like a teenager. in short F-U and have a nice day. :-)

    I didn’t figure Kate Gosselin as a compassionate person. She had a goal in life, to put her DNA on the planet big time, and nothing would stand in her way, not even her husband, who wanted to stop after 2 kids. I saw the way she treated him, and the ‘family dogs’ were only added for the sake of the show. If she cared in the first place, the dogs would have been rescued, not purchased.

    Kate is a crazy unhinged imbecile

    There was a walk against breed ban’s in Washington about a year ago. Thousands of people walked to end discrimination and profiling of responsible people’s innocent family pets.
