    General Dog Forum
    I believe there is a tiny bit of mostly forgotten research about so-called "Cocker Rage Syndrome" in cocker spaniels and other breeds, or Sudden Onset Aggression, a possibly seizure-related or disorder, which has been most extensively researched by Dr Ilana Reisner. Her work traces this form of...

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/family-pit-bull-kills-4-year-old-girl-article-1.1735814 It is horrible for a child to get killed, in anyway. Her mother must be sick with grief. But isn't the media just lying a little? 130 lb pit bull? And they don't show much of the critical...

  9. PETA vs BadRap

    General Dog Forum
    Apparently, some PETA folks got into an argument with Bad Rap folks at a Pride Parade last weekend: The full story is here. I just find it interesting that the PETA girls claimed that rescuing a Pit Bull 'steals homes' from more worthy dogs, just like PETA claims purebred dogs do. It really...
