I love them
no it isn't
it's a question of responsible dog ownership
It's also a question of understanding the role of dogs in human society. Have you any idea why dogs were domesticated?
I have a large dog, and it is as well trained as any dog you will find. It was trained by a relative of mine who is a gamekeeper on a Scottish estate.
However, I make no apologies in admitting that part of the dog's responsibilities is to act as a guardian for my home and my family. Isn't that what all dogs used to be about?
I don't advocate having a dog rip anyone's throat out, but if my family is ever subjected to the type of feral behaviour that seems to be becoming more prevalent in this society, I will not complain if the dog attempts to protect them.
People on this thread have been pushing the idea that the scroats who own Staffordshire Bull Terriers only have them as a fashion accessory. I put the question to you, If you don't have a dog to perform one, or more, of it's originally intended functions, i.e. working, guarding, hunting, etc, then you have it as an accessory, and are no better than than the scroats.
