    Give me Pitbulls and Rottweilers any day. Labs are great dogs but they bite just like any other dog including pitbulls. I got bit in the face by a lab when I was 12, and brother got bit by a lab when he was 5. We also lived with a pitbull for 12 years and NOT one attack, bite, or even growl from him. Best dog in the world.

    if dogs bites, and a pitbull bites harder… look up the top ten strongest bite by breed. pitbulls and Rottweillers made up 50 percent of fatalities by dog bites in the CDC research. Just look up Pitt bull on google, and read wikipedia… BTW i like pit bulls, they are very cute dogs.

    Do all of you people have pure breed dogs? I own a mut. As I said in another video, it’s probably a cross between labdrador, boxer and 16 other dog breeds. And probably zebra, lol. Always acts like a hamster on coffeine, is pretty dumb and silly and likes to chew on all the wrong things -like the mail and his food bowl. But i love him and wouldn’t replace him, no matter what pure breed you would offer me
