The fiance on a whim bought a pitbull from a local shelter. Is this thing safe for my 3 year old. WHEN WE MET HIM AT THE SHELTER HE WAS RELAXED but when they handed him to us they explained he was on anti anxiety medication trapazone at the shelter and gave us a 7 day supply. Considering how dangerous they are capable of being and I have only seen his personality when drugged, am I putting the 3 year old in a dangerous situation by allowing  this?

Update. Locked the dog in our bedroom. He escaped the room and killed 2 of my fiance's 4 cats. I told her this was a bad ideal. I have to get rid of him now back to the shelter. I don't trust him.

I watched the drizzly death of a human and this was almost as traumatizing.  The dog went straight for the first cat and I yelled no, kicked him hard as fuck. Started beating him with a chair over the head. It is like the dog did not notice me at all. So I just ran and grabbed the other 2 cats before he could get to them. I could not save one of them. He might still be alive if he found a good hiding spot but I doubt it. The dog is acting normal now but I am scared as fuck of him and cannot look at him the same way after seeing how vicious he could be

They are 6% of the dog population and responsible for over 60% of fatal attacks and of the 600 plus murders they commit a year, 50% are of their own family/owners.

I don't  have one. I am asking if they are dangerous and not looking to propose solutions. The most viable solutions I can think of infringe on people's freewill and I would probably rather live with the danger than support policies that deprive people of more of their free will anyway

Yout an idiot. I asked if they were dangerous to better understand the situation. I did not talk about any problem other than a gap in my knowledge. You are also an idiot for thinking that I need to come up with a conclusion to talk about a problem.

Me asking if pitbulls are dangerous is useless? I doubt it. The point was to see if being around them was statistically more bad or good for me and the people I love. 

If you are saying it is useless to talk about problems without a solution than you are also wrong. Usually the solution becomes apparent when you work at strictly defining a problem.

People who strictly defined problems to come up with a solution include noted geniuses like Richard Feinman who clearly was good at solving shit most of us can't even understand
