41. I agree
Having handled other peoples dogs my whole life all I can say its the dog's disposition and his interaction with humans. However pit bulls have very strong jaw muscles and tend to inflict more damage in an attack. Ny own nemesis was always the little old ladies lap dog. Got some scars from them.
