The dog breed most likely to bite was not the Pit Bull, Rottweiler, or German Shepherd, but â�¦wait for itâ�¦the Dachshund. And second was the Chihuahua, followed by the Jack Russell Terrier. Research involved 6000 dog owners. Course, if you want to know which dog produces the most fatalaties from their bites, the answer is overwhelmingly pit-bull,
Dachshunds and Chiuahuas have been proven to be the most aggressive breeds, but small dog bites are rarely reported. Therefore, most bites is from pit bull-like dogs.
Dog bites make up 80-85% of all reported incidents
the dog that bites the most ... actually you cant tell what breed bited it how they are brought upmy dog is a boxa mix masstif but we have brought her up and she has never biten anyone we have also had goloden retrievers and oit balls and no one vr got bite
Probably the Komondor. They have long, beaded, protective fur. They were bred with this fur not just to protect them from the cold but mostly to protect the dog from wolf bites when it is fighting wolves. Also to protect against bear bites. Although they rarely encounter bears. They have the most protective fur of any dog breed and the most.
Pitbulls are (absolute mongrels)Hogwash! That is an answer borne out of pure uninformedprejudiceIn some localities, the pitbull is the breed involved in most dog bites, however, according to throughout the U.S., mixed breeds are involved in most bites, and that the two pure breeds most often involved are:German Shepherd and Chow.Gee wonder why the most-owned dog in the U.S. would be the most-involved breed in dog bites.Also, children are involved in more dog bites than adults. Hmm, an unknown creature runs up and starts squealing and hitting me, I'm hitting back too!In fact, the Pit bull is one of the most loving and fanatically loyal breeds in existence. The history of the breed, and the continued use/abuse of the dogs for that purpose are what further their bad reputation.some good references on pit bulls.Also, to further the argument of mixed breed attacks, "mongrel" means a dog of mixed breed. Strike two!
No breed of dog is more likely than any other breed of dog to bite.
There is no specific breed that is the most dangerous. Dogs learn to be violent through training and the way they were raised. There are more reported bites from Golden labs and poodles then there are from anyother type of dog including other "high risk" breeds such as Pitbulls.AN English bull terrier are dangerous, they have the most muscle in any dog.
Dogs who are treated badly, neglected, or abused. Dogs who think that they, not their owner, are the Alpha of the pack or dogs that are trained to attack or defend against people (they may mistake their handler for one they are to be guarding against). Small dogs such as chihuahuas and pomeranians are babied and sometimes not trained for they are small enough to not pose a threat. My belief (may no be true, just a theory) the majority of dog bites are by a small breed. The fact is that the most reported dog bites are by Labrador Retrievers because they have a reputation of being friendly, family dogs and are approached with less fear than, say, an APBT (Pit Bulls are some of the best dogs with kids and some of the most loyal. If is true that they have a tendency to be dog-aggressive, but proper training, which is often neglected, fixes that.), but my theory is that this massive number of small breed dog bites are not reported as they are not severe enough (small dog, small bite) to be reported.
No, extreme over bites will be passed to its puppies.The main bites in dog breeds are scissor, level & under bite (boxers/bulldogs only).Have your dog evaluated by a vet, or a reputable breeder of your breed, or look at your breed's standard bite.
According to the official Dog Bite Claims website, the top 5 breeds for reported Dog bites are as follows (this may surprise you): 1) Dachshunds 2) Chihuahua 3) Jack Russell Terrier 4) Australian Cattle Dog 5) Cocker Spaniel
Although exact figures are not known because many bite cases are not reported, a large percentage of dog and human bites cause wounds on the head and neck.
That is quite a difficult question to answer. Most rottweiler attacks are caused by bad ownership, and not the breed, its the same for all dogs. To give accurate figures would prove very difficult, as most dog bites don't get reported unless they are extreme cases.
the welsh springer spaniel is the most uncommon breed in the us
pitbull n rotweilerImproved AnswerIts impossible to say which breed attacks the most, as only serious bites are usually recorded. There are many badly behaved small breeds of dog that readily bite and nip, yet are not corrected as many people see this as 'cute'. These are never reported as a bite from a small dog is rarely serious.Bigger dogs with stronger jaws (such as 'bull' breeds, Rotweilers, Akitas etc.) often get reported if they have attacked or bitten. Such breeds can be bought by those who just want a 'tough-looking' or 'dangerous' dog, which does not help the breed image. These situations give a slightly skewed view on dog breeds in general, so much so certain breeds, or breed 'types' (such as any dog that looks like a pitbull) now have a reputation for being dangerous.
There is not a breed of dog that is known for being a biting breed. Although there are several breeds that are know to be aggressive such as Dobermans, Pit Bulls, and Rottweiler's. This is at debate not a proven fact. What is proven is a matter of statistics. Pit bulls (and pit bull mixes) have overwhelmingly caused the most fatalities in the last few years.
There is no such thing as a vicious breed! ANY breed of Dog can become aggressive if it is not socialized and trained properly and responsibly. It may surprise you to learn that in actual fact the highest number of Dog bites come from Dachshunds (sausage dogs), with Chihuahuas being second. There are no bad breeds, only bad owners.
