Your right...there are a TON more labs out there as pets then there are pit bulls, so it's hard to compare. But, one thing people forget is that PB's have been bread to fight. Regardless of how they are raised, instinctually, they have a rougher demeanor then labs (for an example). Another example for comparison is that labs aren't great guard dogs, but germen shepherds are. How dogs are raised does indeed play an important part, but instincts do as well. With breeds like Pit Bulls, you are already behind the eight ball. I have never heard of a normally well mannered lab jumping a fence to attack a child, but, I have heard that about Pit Bulls many times.

Why people keep Pit Bulls as pets, anyway, is beyond me. They are mean and ugly.
