It is very difficult to get an accurate count in dog bite statistics because most of the time they are not reported and if they are reported it is often not known what the breed of dog is. However, the statistics that are available do not show pit bulls as most likely to bite. In fact, when tests were conducted by the American Temperament Testing Society (ATTS), Pit Bulls received a passing score better than some breeds who are considered nice dogs, such as Beagles and Golden Retrievers! Also, as stated above, there are several dog breeds commonly referred to as pit bulls. So, based on that alone, they are much more likely to be blamed for an attack than other breeds because the number of dogs called pit bulls is skewed far higher than the actual number of American Pit Bulls Terriers there really are

Which dog bites 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!

What dogs generally turn on their owners?

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.

What dog breed has most attacks?

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.
