4 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on August 28, 2013

4 Most Dangerous Dog BreedsWhen walking around your neighborhood you might see dogs that appear friendly, but they might be more aggressive than you think. Dog bites and dog attacks in Texas happen more often than you would expect. It’s important to know which dog breeds are the most dangerous, so you can keep your loved ones safe from dog bites:

  • Pit bulls: Pit bulls are the most dangerous dog in America. During 2012, there were 38 fatal dog bites in America, and pit bulls contributed to 61 percent of these dog bite related deaths. Pit bulls are more likely to attack due to their selective breeding for dogfighting. Unlike other dog breeds, pit bulls frequently fail to communicate their intention prior to a dog attack.
  • Rottweilers: Rottweilers have caused the second most dog bite fatalities in America. From 2005 to 2012, rottweilers killed 32 people, about one person every 91 days. Their temperament is usually passive and attentive, but are prone to aggressive outbursts.
  • German Shepherds: German Shepherds have high intelligence and are aggressive, which makes them a good guard and police dogs. But these traits also mean they are the third most dangerous dog breed.
  • Wolf Hybrids: Many U.S. states regulate the breeding and ownership of wolf hybrids, which result from the mating of a wolf and a dog, because this crossbreed has such a deadly track record. Wolf hybrids accounted for 19 dog-bite related deaths between 1982 and 2012.

If you or a loved one were a victim of a dog bite or dog attack in Texas, you are entitled to justice and compensation for your emotional and physical trauma. Contact the experienced Texas dog bite attorneys at the Law Offices of W.T. Johnson today and set-up your free, no-obligation consultation.
