Damage matters; danger matters. To date no Dachshund has killed a neighbor adult walking to the mailbox. No dachshund has broken into a home in our neighborhood with the goal of killing the resident dog. He had a brain injury, so he loves the color red and he loves pit bulls. Or maybe Johnny can tell if the pit is sick or if the pit looks at him funny. More pits are killed when their owners starve or beat their pit bulls to death.
Would you want Johnny to be your new neighbor? There are, literally, dozens of proven and accurate studies done to show that pits not a breed are generally a friendlier dog than most other dogs.
People that think like you are the reason that these well mannered dogs are put down in high numbers in shelters every day.

May I share your parable to my group? Lets start with this: any dog breed can bite, depending on the size of the victim any dog can kill. So I think you should be able to own any breed you want, if it kills or does any significant damage to human or other pet, the dog should be put down and the owner held fully responsible, this includes jail time fitting the crime, your dog kills someone not including protection of owner-very rare you go for murder regardless of breed.

She is a dach. Best guard dog I know. Extremly smart, knowing all sorts of frazes n commands. Can be stubborn as hell. Will only go on walks if they involve a ride there. She sleeps in my bed everynight. So far so good no casualties. Imagine life without her. Shes deff somethang special. I have a dachshund and he is extremely protective , but he is really nice once he is used to the person, but he has attacked a few strangers that approached me outside.
I got him before he could do any real damage He has also attacked a large husky in my neighborhood and completely shredded up the dogs leg. He has also killed a couple birds and a rabbit in my backyard. Well, it would seem that newer studies bear out what most of us owners have known for a long time, it really comes down to the owner.
