    I guess to some, fighting is hunting to them. They are too lazy to hold a real job and would rather "rescue the dogs from the animal shelter" Yes, they did this too. Raise them to fight so they can gamble on the outcome, breed more fighting dogs, deal drugs, use the drugs to lure in teenage girls for sexual favors, etc. I am not just making wild stabs at them. I know they did this and no matter what I did it was in vain. The girls were over 16 and the parents didn't care either. So the circle goes beyond just dog fighting...they are a disgrace to the human race.

    I was a vet tech for about 5 years...honestly, chihuahua's are more fierce then any large breed dog. They will bite your face off if you let them get close enough. The only bites I have ever suffered have been from chihuahua's. I have been around rottie's most of my life and own a pitbull and neither one has EVER made me feel afraid of them. Teach them to be mean and fight and they will. I'm not saying you don't get a lemon every now and then, just doesn't happen as often as you think.

    The difference in hunting and dog fighting is.....God provides us meat to eat from the animals being hunted. Are you going to eat a dog that you just got done fighting...I did not think so. So quit being so dumb to ask that question.How do you think you get beef or pork on your table....they are killed to provide you meat to eat. God be with dumb people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You hunt to kill wild game for EATING!!! A dog is a PET to be loved and cared for. Not to fight for money.
