There are suddenly a lot of pit bulls on the island.

Is there such a thing as a "super sweet" pit bull? There have been so many unprovoked attacks on people by pit bulls in England it's now illegal to have one. Of course, all puppies are sweet, but then they grow up.....

Yes there is, especially in this case. Dogs are not the problem, only owners.

'glad the dog was found.

And YES, there are PLENTY examples of 'super sweet pit bulls'... I'd say they're the norm as opposed to the exception. At the turn of the century, pit bulls, American S. Terriers, etc were considered "nanny dogs" as they were so loyal/gentle people used them as babysitters for small children. Heck, one of Hellen Keller's guide-dogs was a pit bull. Sadly, the same qualities that made them wonderful companions (incredible devotion, loyalty) were later abused by idiots/idiot breeders who trained and tortured the dogs into fighting... read the specifics of what A-hole Michael Vick did to his dogs and you'll cringe. In an incredible testament to their species, almost ALL of Vick's former dogs show no aggression to humans, most are being "rehabilitated" and many placed in new homes (I believe only 1 of the 40-odd dogs had to be euthanized.) We have house-sat for our friends who have two pit bulls and they are two of the most loving, gentle animals I've ever met.

Simon's correct, in that owners are the problems... The UK (and places like TX, which is also considering a breed-specific ban) should not 'ban pit bulls', they should crack down on idiots... If there's a rash of thugs, drug dealers, etc walking around parading pit bulls, I'd argue you have a police/crime problem, not a "breed of dog" problem.

If you're a dog lover I highly suggest reading Ceasar's Way
which explains a lot about why some dogs are the way they are.

I have been corrected by an expert. My comment was wrong in (at least) one significant respect - in the UK the law is concerned with "pitbull terrier TYPES", not pit bulls per se. "Pit bull" not being well defined. So yes, there may well be lots of loving and totally trustworthy pit bull terriers around, and by all accounts Kilo is one of them.
