Picture above is a pit bull dog that cut off the head of its owner head in India recently.
Pit bull is the common name for a type of dog. Formal breeds often considered of the pit bull type include the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
The American Bulldog and Bull Terrier (standard andminiature) are also sometimes included. Many of these breeds were originally developed as fighting dogs from cross breeding bull-baiting dogs (used to hold the faces and heads of larger animals such as bulls) and terriers.
Pitbulls used to be considered the perfect ‘nanny dogs’ for children — until the media turned them into monsters.
After the use of dogs in blood sportswas banned, such dogs were used as catch dogs in the United States for semi-wild cattle and hogs, to hunt and drive livestock, and as family companions,although some owners still bred and used them for illegal dog fighting.
This practice continues to this day, but is illegal in many nations.
Ultimately, the decision to adopt any dog requires much thought on what is the right fit for your family, and your ability to commit to the dog for his or her lifetime.
What could have made the dog kill its owner?
