The dogs should not be blamed for doing what they were designed to do which is to fight other animals for hunting and sport. Unfortunately the owners of the dogs do not train them to be social animals and therefore the dogs instincts take over a lead them into trouble.
Oddly enough the American blue pit bulls are very good parents and if you introduce them to small children they will look after them with dedication and respect. Normally it is strangers that get attacked by these dogs because they are afraid of the dog which means the fear gives of a scent which changes the dogs’ personality and makes it into a killing machine. The lock jaw of the terrier and pit bull species is one of the more dangerous traits of the animal which means when the dog gets excited its jaws will lock closed and there is no way of releasing the prey or person until it has released their jaw.
