This type of animal should stop being bred.

There is just no need for it. Animals are not on earth to protect humans. Humans are here to protect animals.

Stop breeding.

Would you offer yourself as a human sacrifice to all the local mosquitos in the area so I don't have to kill them?

What?

Animals , insects... do we use insects to protect properties and security guards? You might just have a plan. Doom resistant mosquito.
You should help out at pitbull and rotti rescue then you see what guard dogs are treated like.

STop breeding. \
50 000-150 000 animals are killed monthly at the SPCA ( In SA this is our stats)
I know of 29 Rotties that will be PTS by next week because they can not be adopted and is deemed dangerous to humans. They have been in kennels and been worked with to be rehabilitated but there is just no homes for dogs like these.

Why do humans need rottweilers?
Because small wormie syndrome?
Because pretty?
Its a man made problem. So the solution is also human. Stop breeding with them.

or we can just sterilize the planet and the animals will not be an issue anymore.

There are rescue organizations that will not even take these animals in. They are PTS ( put to sleep) on intake.

Stop breeding and the cruelty will stop.
Its not the dog;'s fault that humans bred him to be a killing machine.
Now child died, will the breeder or owner face any repercussions?

I know in Germany they sterilize all horses that show anti social behavior. That way they say they are removing that gene from the gene pool.
Why not do it with dogs?
Because greed and laziness.

OT: one of my neighbours has what appears to be pitbull puppy.

/gulp

The scary part is that the yard is a little too small for a power breed the poor thing is alone most of the day. Some kids pet (surprise!) through the fence.

Humans exploit anything. We just haven't found a way to domesticate highly venomous snakes yet.

I know I am going to get flack for this .... A firearm in the safe is useless.

Carry everyday/everywhere as much as is practically possible as you won't know when you will need it.

Train, train some more and then keep training.

Lastly if you don't have the right mindset or are in any way irresponsible, don't get a firearm!
yeah, carry 24/7/365

We used to do it with Pitbulls in particular, I know that.
Any dog which showed human agression was culled, which, for a while, did improve the breed.

Your dog should wear a collar 24/7, especially if it is a power breed. And not some cheapie from the flea market. If something happens, grab the collar and twist. Can't continue the fight if it cannot breathe. When it releases immediately twist the dog away so it breaks eye contact with the other animal. Dragging it back so it can still see the other dog just maintains the high aggression level. If there is no collar you can use a belt or a leash, anything to wrap around their neck.

We have a pit bull and a bull terrier. When they are walked they both wear a body harness, a collar and there are two leashes, one attached to the harness and the other to the collar. If one fails the other is there as back up.

So you know they will kill if the opportunity presented itself?

The pit bull is socialised with both humans and other animals. Yesterday she was at a walk with multiple dogs and their owners. She used to go to a parlour (strangers, other dogs) but we wash her ourselves now as she developed a skin condition and needs special shampoo.

The bull terrier is a rescue and was attacked twice as a pup, one was a severe mauling for which his chest had to be stitched closed. He only gets on with the pit bull otherwise he is fear aggressive towards other dogs.

We take precautions when they walk because;
a) They are bloody strong and pull like freight trains. Don't want to risk a leash or collar breaking while in the streets.
b) The bull terrier will show aggression towards any dog that comes near it and while the pit bull is placid she's still a pit bull (if she is attacked no doubt she'll defend herself) and no chances are taken in the event of irresponsible owners allowing their dogs to roam free. We just make sure we can have as much control over them as possible should something untoward happen. That's what you call responsible ownership.
