Very sad, indeed.
I completely agree. I've heard many people say silly things in regards to aggressive pitbulls.
"I want a dog like that!" "That's an awesome dog!" "My dog attacks everybody, it's great."
Luckily, all of the pitbulls/pitbull mixes I've met, were extremely friendly. It breaks my heart to know that irresponsible people are getting these dogs solely for their tendency for aggression.
