When it comes to Dog bite attacks, the law can get blurry. If your dog attacks someone then you can be held liable, even if it is in your own backyard. Because the lines are so blurry, you probably need a reputable lawyer in your corner if anyone is ever bitten by your pooch.
Many people however, have no idea which dogs are apt to leave Dog bites and which dogs are not. Below you will find a few of the top dogs that are apt to bite according to statistics.
On the far end of the spectrum, you have the St. Bernard. According to statistics, this lovable but huge pooch has caused seven fatalities. The sheer size of the dog is the reason that it can be considered dangerous; they can hurt you even when they are just playing.
The Great Dane
This is another dog with seven fatalities to report. It is also another dog that has sheer size behind it. Great Danes are usually gentle animals, but they do require a lot of care and training.
The Doberman pincher is known to be one of the most aggressive dogs known to man. Studies have shown that the pincher has been responsible for nine fatalities over time. To be fair, most of these were caused because they were defending their owners. Dobermans are very, very loyal animals.
Wolf Dog Hybrid
This one really comes as no surprise to anyone, because the dog is part wolf. Even though they are bred and trained carefully, sometimes the wild wolf takes over and there is nothing much the owner can do to stop the mayhem that can occur.
It is no surprise to see the pit bull at the top of this list with 66 known fatalities attributed to this breed alone. The dog is known for its extremely aggressive nature and it is illegal to own this type of dog in many states. Other states have banned the breeding of the animal as well.
These are just a few of the dogs that are dangerous and most likely to bite. If you are the owner of one of these types dogs that has bitten someone, you should call Richard A. Dulaney for representation today.
