    I would like to say that i share your passion in the fight against pit bulls and their mixes.I followed your story about your beautiful son quite a few years ago and it is what has motivated me in the fight to have the breed banned. I myself was attacked when i was five years old,but i survived cause my parents were able to stop it.I am one of the lucky ones. My heart aches for you and your wife. I simply couldn’t imagine it. I think about your beautiful little Dax a lot and he truly is an inspiration. I know that you do not know me,but i figured that i would just drop you a message to let you know that i and many of us are with you in this battle.and we won’t back down! God bless you and keep up the good fight!

    Ownership of high-risk (“vicious”) dogs as a marker for deviant behaviors: implications for risk assessment.

    Barnes JE1, Boat BW, Putnam FW, Dates HF, Mahlman AR.
    Author information
    Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Ohio, USA.
    This study examined the association between ownership of high-risk (“vicious”) dogs and the presence of deviant behaviors in the owners as indicated by court convictions. We also explored whether two characteristics of dog ownership (abiding licensing laws and choice of breed) could be useful areas of inquiry when assessing risk status in settings where children are present. Our matched sample consisted of 355 owners of either licensed or cited dogs that represented high or low-risk breeds. Categories of criminal convictions examined were aggressive crimes, drugs, alcohol, domestic violence, crimes involving children, firearm convictions, and major and minor traffic citations. Owners of cited high-risk (“vicious”) dogs had significantly more criminal convictions than owners of licensed low-risk dogs. Findings suggest that the ownership of a high-risk (“vicious”) dog can be a significant marker for general deviance and should be an element considered when assessing risk for child endangerment.

    A study published in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence showed a link between ownership of high-risk dog breeds and deviant behaviors, crimes against children and domestic violence. Researchers examined the criminal backgrounds of 355 Ohio dog owners who had either a “high-risk” or an unlicensed dog. The high-risk dogs included all pit bulls (whether they had injured a person or not) and other dogs that had actually injured a person. The study found that all of the owners of high-risk dogs had at least one criminal conviction or traffic citation, while only 27% of the other dog owners had one or the other. More significantly, 30% of the owners of high-risk dogs had 5 or more criminal convictions or traffic citations, and those owners had significantly more criminal and traffic citations in every category than those who owned low-risk, licensed dogs. Compared with the owners of low-risk, licensed dogs, those who owned high-risk, cited dogs were more than 9 times as likely to have been convicted for a crime involving children, 3 times as likely to have been convicted for domestic violence, and 14 times as likely to have been convicted of crimes involving alcohol.

    Did you really just type that? You are threatening the blogger with exposing your lies about them to BLM?
    Wow. I am not quite sure how to respond to that but I am going to give it a shot. We are talking about a breed of dog here, which you seem to have confused with a race of humans. Are you actually comparing the plight of African-Americans with dogs? Please read up on why comparing dogs to races is wrong on so many levels.

    Re: abusive and/or deceitful emails…. This also means that any and all content posted on your website is fair game for anyone to use and abuse in any way, shape or form they feel fit. I’ve already grabbed your photos and will use them to produce a “the father of this kid is teaching his child to hate black people” poster for the “Black lives matter” facebook page. Thanks for sharing.

    • Daxtons Friends Post author

      Thank you for your comments. I’m sure the folks on Black Lives Matter’s Facebook page will just love how you compared their struggles in the civil rights movement to dogs.

      Added your information to a new category on a blog site called, “hate mail.” Enjoy: https://daxtonsfather.wordpress.com/2016/08/14/jamie-weston-pit-bull-advocate-harassment-jamie_weston86mail-com-ip-50-70-168-11/

      We’ve collected a few interesting articles we wanted to share with you.


      In recent years the term breed “racism” had emerged when addressing breed related issues and regulations. The concept is if you support dog breed regulations or acknowledge negative breed specific traits it is equivalent to the human form of racism. The error in the concept is that humans and dogs are very different creatures. Dog breeds exist because they are specifically designed for a purpose. Dogs are selectively bred for physical and breed trait aspects. Humans do not reproduce in that manner. Humans are not selectively bred and have a choice in their mate. To make this concept equivalent, humans would have to be purposely bred for certain physical or personality traits over the course of hundreds of years. It has not been determined that selectively breeding humans would actually work since there has not been any official scientific studies conducted. The closest humanity came to selective breeding was the concept of Eugenics, which was trying to breed out negative physical traits, such as mental illness, and breed in positive traits, such as a high I.Q. The concept has been abandoned by most cultures due to the difficulty of selective breeding due to the high incidence of unplanned pregnancies. Dogs have been selectively bred for many generations with great success. Since racism in the human culture is based solely on the color of one’s skin, hence the “race” in racism, and not personality traits, it does not accurately compare to dog breeding. To accurately compare, one would have to judge a dog based solely on fur color. Most breeds are judged on physical and personality related breed traits, so the term breed “racism” is not equivalent to human forms of racism. It is surprising that more people are not offended by this comparison. Comparing breed struggles to the Civil Rights movement seems a little extreme and minimalizes the struggles of certain races in history. The comparison of dog breeds and racism has no basis.


      “By listing similar recent attacks in my earlier piece, I was labeled a racist by people who think that you cannot “slander” an entire breed based on “isolated incidents.” But isn’t it racist to think that certain people (blacks, Asians, and Muslims were the groups that had the dubious honor of being defended) are analogous to dog breeds? The number of races in the world is a controversial subject, but however anthropologists divvy up Homo sapiens, no group aggregates traits that make it more or less fit for a certain kind of employment, or more or less fit to be around other living creatures, than any other race. Meanwhile, the various dog breeds owe their very existence to man’s desire to, for example, hunt, herd, travel by sled, have companionship, live without rats, impress the ladies, and watch dog fights. If we couldn’t generalize about dog breeds, there wouldn’t be any. Why is this even an issue? We generalize about the African lion and, based on our shared perceptions of its habits, have banned its ownership in all but a few special circumstances. Cats are legal as pets, lions are not because a lion, by the standards of civilized society, is a cat taken to ridiculously dangerous extremes.”

      “Millan has probably done more to spread the canard of pit bull trustworthiness as a pet than any other single person. Pit bulls and other genetically-related fighting dogs are high-risk animals, demonstrably – the statistics on these animals are insurmountably inculpatory – not trustworthy, neither with other animals nor with people. That is undoubtedly the reason Millan did not bring Junior along for the show. He undoubtedly did not want the bother of keeping Junior isolated from the other dogs and monitoring his behaviour every second that he was in contact with people. Pit bulls are bred for impulsive aggression, and it is as natural for them to attack other dogs as it is for greyhounds to run after rabbits on a track.

      But Millan’s fetish for fighting dogs has him bruiting the same reflexive, but illogical nonsense that all pit bull advocates spout. Millan says that bans of pit bulls are “prejudicial” and miss the point: “It’s just like an anti-Mexican or an anti-gay law.”

      No, Cesar, it isn’t. Let me explain. Mexicans and gay people are not born in kennels as part of a litter. Their parents were not selected by a “breeder” to produce them because they were fine examples of a certain physical conformation and certain temperament. It was not predictable when you were born that you, for example, would be a dog whisperer or that a gay person would be gay.

      Stay with me here, Cesar. When you breed a greyhound to a greyhound, you will get a litter of dogs that are “fast” when they run. When you breed a border collie to a border collie, you will get a dog that has a “herding” instinct. Still with me? Now we’re going to breed a “fighting dog” to another “fighting dog” and you know what we’re going to get? Yes! A “fighting dog.”

      What do we mean by that? Well Cesar, you yourself know what the traits of a fighting dog are. I quote you: “Yeah, but this is a different breed…the power that comes behind the bull dog, pit bull, presa canario, the fighting breed – They have an extra boost, they can go into a zone, they don’t feel the pain anymore. … So if you are trying to create submission in a fighting breed, it’s not going to happen. They would rather die than surrender. If you add pain, it only infuriates them…to them pain is that adrenaline rush, they are looking forward to that, they are addicted to it… That’s why they are such great fighters.” You go on to say: “Especially with fighting breeds, you’re going to have these explosions over and over because there’s no limits in their brain.” Wow, is that what you want in a pet? A dog that has “explosions over and over” in its brain?

      Please, let us do away with this language of “prejudice” and “discrimination” and “stereotype” when we speak of dog breeds. The whole point of breeding animals is to “discriminate” and to create “stereotypes.” Pit bulls were created by human beings to be fighting machines. They are individuals in their various personalities, but in their “instincts,” they are what they were bred to do. And what pit bulls were bred to do is to attack and hang on like grim death.

      Dog breeds are human inventions, not a species. Dogs are consumer items, not human beings that can feel bad when they are banned. The name of Millan’s show is ironic. If you really “trust your instincts” with a bit of intelligent research backing them up, you will realize that Cesar Millan is defending the indefensible. If you can only love a pit bull, you’re no dog lover.”



      “Having been raised in the segregated South and knowing what racism is, it is ridiculous to me to read the word applied to animals. I am a human being; so are minorities, and so are those children who are now in the grave.

      I am highly insulted and dismayed also that freedom of speech does not apply in the “Alice in Wonderland” world of pit bull advocacy.”

      Pit bulls do not discriminate and we can’t address this safety problem if the media paints a false reality.

      The fact is black people own pit bulls and black people are killed by pit bulls and white people own pit bulls and white people are killed by pit bulls, too. Equal application of criminal charges is warranted, too.

      How Pro-Pitbull Crusades Harm Workers — and Dogs

      by LEE HALL

      “But I also know that dog breeds have been introduced into the stream of commerce one by one. Each year, Madison Square Garden hosts the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show — a showroom floor for breeds, including new models. (This year, the two “newly recognized” breeds are the Coton de Tulears and the Wirehaired Vizslas.) And if dog breeds have come into existence one by one, then breed-specific legislation to phase them out isn’t an outrageous concept. If we would stop the breeding, wouldn’t the starting point involve animals subject to physical extremes or unremitting abuse, including pit bulls, Dobermans, Rottweilers, Presa Canarios, wolf hybrids and other dogs often selected because of their rough reputations?

      What is outrageous? Likening breed-specific policies to racial profiling, or to a “violation of our rights as stated in the 14th amendment of the United States Constitution.”

    I read William’s comment of July 6, 2015.
    I find his comparison of a dog’s behavior to a human naive and misguided. People have very few hardwired instinctive behaviors compared to animals in general, and for purposes of this discussion, dogs in particular. Beyond a human’s basic “hand to mouth” instinct, nearly every skill a human obtains needs to be learned.
    Dogs on the other hand, have a great deal of instinctive behavior hardwired into their brains. If you want a dog to help you hunt ducks, one would select a Chesapeake Bay Retriever or a Labrador Retriever, these dogs are bred with the physical and mental characteristics to make them excel at these tasks. Selective breeding has given them webbed feet for more efficient swimming, a large thick tail for an effective rudder, thick undercoat for insulation from the icy waters they retrieve downed ducks from, a love of retrieving. These dogs are hardwired to perform these tasks, one would hardly expect to get a chow or a doberman to do the same work.

    If you have a flock of sheep, one would select a border collie to look after the animals. Border collies are bred to herd animals, they have an incredible attention span and endurance that is not to be believe. These physical and mental characteristics have been carefully selectively bred into these dogs to make them suitable for these tasks.

    Other examples; golden’s retrieve, pointers point, and bloodhounds track, you get the idea.

    Now on to pit type dogs. Today’s pit type dog is a descendant of the original English bull-baiting dog, a dog that was bred to bite and hold bulls, bears and other large animals around the face and head. When baiting large animals was outlawed in the 1800s, people turned instead to fighting their dogs against each other. These larger, slower bull-baiting dogs were crossed with smaller, quicker terriers to produce a more agile and athletic dog for fighting other dogs. All of these physical and mental characteristics have been carefully selectively bred into pit type dogs to make them suitable for these tasks. Seriously, are these the hardwired selectively bred tasks you want in a dog that you expose your friends and loved ones to?

    I would hope not, steer clear of pit type dogs and other bully breeds.

    William, we are speaking of animals that hurt human beings, not people that hurt human beings. Let’s keep our subject to one thing, just so we don’t muddy up the waters. Let’s also keep religion out of this. As far as other pets, birds, cats, rabbits, I am willing to entertain any information regarding any killing of human beings by a pet rabbit or a parakeet. Even a kitty cat. But since we are not having that argument, let’s then just stick to Pitbulls. A Pitbull terrier, or any one of the other names that they are called, has the unique ability to kill a full grown human being. They have the propensity to grab and hang on, to hang on and shake, and not to stop until the victim is dead. Sometimes not even then. All Pitbulls are NOT monsters! But all Pitbulls have not only the potential and the breeding for this behavior, they have the ability! Add that to the fact that because they were bred to be stealthy in a fight / attack situation, a Pit can pass a temperament test easily. This animal does not have to be mean to do what it does. It just does it’s thing, happily killing whatever may have triggered the attack, wagging it’s tail the whole time. I know, I watched this happen to my dog. It is a sight I would not wish on anyone to ever see. There was no growl, no warning, just quick and vicious devastation. All of the other pets you listed do not have the ability to kill a person easily. I suppose a bunny could bite your jugular……..but I don’t believe that there is any record of such. Pitbull/ Pitbull type dogs/Pitbull mixes do not make good pets. They are not meant to be pets. They were never “Nanny Dogs”. If there was 1 in 1000 chance that your PitBull would attack your child would you take it? Would you put your toddler on the floor with such a beast? If ‘Yes” then I am truly sorry for that child, and you as well. If you answered as most would, and say “Not if there was 1 in 10,000 chance that my child would get hurt or killed.”..then you need to rethink your stance. Thank you for your time.

  • William

    As of late, I have been seeing billboards and bus stop advertisements with your websites name on them totally misrepresenting pit bulls.

    First, any domesticated animal has the potential for being aggressive. I have seen cats that go 100% crazy and slice up someones face. Birds, cats, rabbits, these all all animals that have been know to kill or attack humans.

    Second, saying that all pit bulls are monsters are like saying all Catholics are pedophiles, or all Muslims are terrorists.

    Look up the facts…. How many people who come from a good home and is raised in some kind of faith (any faith) become murders, rapists or even terrorist?

    The potential for committing horrific acts is in any animal fish, bird, human etc.

    So please stop posting those hate advertisements.

    I feel for your pain, i do, but say it wasnt a dog but say an asian man or a black man or hispanic man that did that to your son would you put the same adverts blamimg only asian, black, or hispanics.. no you wouldnt because it would be consider rasist and a hate crime.

    Thank you for your time.

    Blessed Be

      Stop comparing dogs to humans. What this gentleman is doing, is great! Maybe it wouldn’t hurt you to look up some facts and learn a little. Good day

        Its pretty clear from the comments and articles on this site that not to many of you, including the site owner, has looked up any facts or learned a little about bully breeds. So much fiction on this site its ridiculous.

      William just tell me one thing. Did Ruth Halleran misrepresent the dog that killed her Mother who was trying to save her grandchild? Lets just start there. I know the truth, why shouldnt others?

  • theyoushow

    Good Work!! This is great that you included this in your website. And I hope that you get nothing but wonderful emails, emails praising the work that you are doing to publicize the problems of owning or being near dangerous dogs. Kudos to you!

    To the victims , keep your voices being heard out there as much as possible. People do and will believe your stories. Thanks so much for all the great information.

    I do appreciate learning more and more–facts. And I appreciate the victims and survivors who speak out .

    Thanks much to everyone.
