Fix me, Josh!
Yeah, they're awful. Going back to their original purpose as carriage dogs, they were bred to be mean, fearless and deaf. They accompanied fire carriages and were basically the horses' bodyguards. There's still a bunch of them that are born hard of hearing, which doesn't help with them being unpredictably violent assholes. They're also way bigger and muscular than people think.
I've known a few of them, my buddy had one that I'd watch for him when she was a puppy and when she kept almost mauling children he wanted me to take her and I shot that down fast as fuck. That dog loved me, like more than him, yet still tried to lunge for my face a couple times and did bite the fuck out of him. I'm not into having a dog that will probably hurt someone. My uncle had one that was also mean but was also fucking retarded. It would lay in the road all the time and just wouldn't move. If anyone tried to move him, he'd bite. They also have a "scissor-bite" like a Doberman that does a lot of damage. They're also a gay looking dog in my opinion.
Another dog breed I hate is the blue heeler. The cocksuckers will just bite you hard for no reason, but at least they serve a purpose if they're actually working.
They are not a house pet. They need to run miles and miles every day. They get cabin fever and that causes the aggression.
