One of the most common dog breeds you hear about in reported dog attack cases seems to be pit bulls.  These animals are known for their aggressive behavior and their tendency to inflict deadly dog bite injuries.  However, there are people who will argue that there is no such thing as a dangerous dog breed, just dangerous owners.

It is true that a dog can be trained to be aggressive or can become vicious due to the way it is treated.  A dog’s tendency to bite can also be based upon its history of aggression.  Yet, it seems that there has to be something to the logic of “dangerous dog breeds.”  Insurance companies buy into that logic and often exclude certain breeds from homeowner’s insurance policies.

Some of the other dog breeds that are considered to be dangerous include Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Doberman Pinschers, Chow Chows, Presa Canarios, Boxers and Dalmatians.
