Found 2 sweet dogs on Willow Terrace Dr in Kings Point between Beaver Falls and Seven Maples. They have no collars, were hiding in a bush, but are sweet and gentle. One is smaller, beige mix of maybe beagle and terrier. Other is larger, brown perhaps pitt mix, but super sweet and gentle.
Get over it, Saturn. I didn't know about the story, but most pits are fabulous dogs. Ashley, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder- My most favorite pets have been pits, they're loving and loyal and do anything to please their humans.
We own a very large Doberman and he is such a gentle loving&loyal dog. A mean dog tried to bite us, and had bothered a bunch of people on the street for weeks, and our Doberman got off his leash to protect us.. Our Dobey ran over and scared the other dog away WITHOUT even biting the other dog. Then Samson, our Dobey, pranced around and came right back to us :) I recommend owning a Doberman for protection..not a pit bull.
Do you really think you can shame me for standing up for a misunderstood breed of dogs? If you want to get on your high horse and make a big deal about a story on the news in another state, be my guest. It's pretty obvious someone p'ed in your wheaties today, and you're trying to dump on anyone handy. You're the one who's pathetic, bud- hope your day gets better, mine's just fine.
you think that's funny, a.t.d.? wow. here's the latest on your defense of your so-called "misunderstood breed of dog"...
Rumors swirled around the death of Bethany Lynn Stephens, a young woman from rural Virginia who, authorities said, was mauled to death by her dogs while out on a walk last week.
Many suspected that someone else killed her and doubted that the dogs were responsible. Goochland County Sheriff Jim Agnew said the misinformation, particularly on social media, was widespread and has complicated the investigation. So he decided to disclose one gruesome detail that he had been reluctant to divulge out of concern for Stephens's family in hopes of reassuring the public that there isn't a killer on the loose.
Shortly after officers found Stephens's body, guarded by her two dogs, they began talking about how to catch the animals. When they turned back around, they saw that the dogs had walked over to the body.
"I observed, as well as four other deputy sheriffs observed," Agnew said, then paused before continuing, "the dogs eating the rib cage on the body."
so you keep defending them, a.t.d., while the rest of us steer clear of these obvious killers.
They are saying the dogs were abused and not fed regularly, by the woman's dad! They were under his care and he kept them in a cage most of the time, aggravating them. So, in all practical purposes, her dad had a large part in her death.

Source? Who is they? I've read the story in several different places now and no one has mentioned anything near what you're saying.
Stephens would treat the dogs like her own children and brought them to work, WTVR reported. Friends told the news station that Stephens got Tonka when he was 8 weeks old and rescued Pac-Man from an abusive home. The dogs were indoor animals and socialized, but they were a "little bit neglected" during the time leading up to last week's deadly mauling, Sgt. Mike Blackwood said at a Monday news conference.
The 22-year-old left her pets with her dad because she was going through personal events, friends said. Blackwood said the dogs began living outside in a kennel and Stephens' father wasn't taking care of them it wasn't his responsibility. Eventually, the Tonka and Pac-Man were living out "in the cold."
The dogs weren't fed daily and saw Stephens roughly five times a week. The canines became more isolated.
Paul said, "The breed in and of itself is a high energy breed, they like to have a lot of structure and a lot of exercise, so by keeping them in a pin, alone, under socialized, away from people, that energy is just building up and building up and building up and that's when you start to see dogs fighting more regularly, that's when you start to see more negative scenarios."
She added that she believes there was "a good chance" the mauling "was energy gone wrong."
"There is a lot of speculation but you can't blame the breed," Paul said.
