  1. These are absolutely beautiful. The dogs must think he's some kind of creationist god.
    I'd love to get my dogs made.

  2. there is nothing to adjust this is fatalities that we are talking about here. The breeds under the pitbull title were bred to do as much damage as possible in the dog fighting ring.

    don't believe me? Idc just please stop spreading pro propaganda about these often deadly or damaging breeds.
