Most American pet owners say a well-trained dog is a safe dog, no matter what the breed.

A new AP poll shows 71% of people surveyed believe even Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are safe if they have had good training.

More than half of pet owners say all breeds should be allowed in residential communities, while only 38% say breeds like Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans and German Shepards should be banned.

When asked just about Pit Bulls, Americans were split...half said they are safe, while a little less than half said they are too dangerous.
