Regardless of whether we're talking about a trigger-happy killer or a sweet family pet, that's too much dog to be cramped into an apartment. Humans get a little snappy when crammed into too tight of quarters for too long. Dogs are perhaps a bit less adapted to that type of condition.

I certainly hope that mother and daughter make full recoveries, and that boyfriend changes his judgement on his choices of apartment companions.

They always say they are never aggressive and depends on how they are raised! A dog is an animal and if they get hurt or startled their instinct is to protect themselves. If I accidentally stepped on my 30 lb mixed breed dog he would snap at me just out of instinct. So imagine a muscular big jawed dog following instinct and now we have another small child mauled by a non aggressive animal.

I had been around many pit bull dogs in my youth . The observation I made is they easily angered. Once made angry this is where they differ from most dogs. Once they attack they have A very hard time turning off the attack mode they are in. Also they have the most powerful jaws of any dog.
Personally I do not trust this breed of dog based on my own observations.

Bad judgment having a pitbull in a small, cramped apartment.
Bad judgment having and keeping a boyfriend who has a pitbull in a small, cramped apartment. The saddest and worse result of these bad decisions is a little girl in extreme pain.

Now an elderly Texan woman killed Monday by pit bulls in Kaufman, Texas. We need tougher laws regarding ownership and responsibility.
