Adapted with thanks from a post on The Truth about Pit Bulls.
Photos of friendly pit bulls and other dangerous breeds as pets are deceptive. These photos only show a moment in time. When pit bulls and other dangerous breeds are made into pets, children are put at risk of being maimed or killed by a well-loved and cared for pet. Dangerous breeds are dangerous because they will break the human canine bond for no reason other than their genetics. These are photos mostly of killer dogs and the victims who loved them. A few of these dangerous dogs merely seriously mauled their victims.
Nov 2020 - After 11 months, French forensics labs finally determined that Elisa Pilarski was killed by her own beloved ADBA registered pit bull Curtis, and not by a pack of hounds as was alleged by her boyfriend. She was taking her beloved pit bull Curtis for a walk in the woods when he turned on her and killed her.
In the video, Elisa repeatedly says to Curtis, "Mon amour" (my love), calls him her baby, says he's a "bon chien" (good dog) and sings "Beautiful Boy" to him. She was six months pregnant at the time of her death. Pit bulls are illegal in France. https://bit.ly/3c7R3zF
