    As a proud pit bull advocate, I believe that this mom was completely in the wrong. You do not leave your child unattended with ANY dog at 3 weeks old. You have work slowly to introduce a child to a dog; but a baby, you have to go even slower. We had a female pit bull when I found out I was pregnant with our first child. We safely introduced the dog to a blanket the baby used in the hospital before we let her meet our daughter. We also let her smell the baby, from inside her kennel, when we brought the baby home. She loved that baby til the day we had to have her put down for a collapsed lung. I will never forget coming home from the vet and my daughter looking for her doggy. Not every pit bull is bad, and other breeds can attack. If you do your research, you will see that in the 70s, German Shepards were the feared breed. In the 80s, it was another one as well. There has been a different breed for each decade for the past 40-50 years. If you want to write me with your hate mail, go on ahead.

    What a way to show journalistic integrity by posting such an inflammatory picture to accompany the article.
