Queens Dog Bite Attorneys

What’s The Most Dangerous Dog Breed?

Doctors, lawmakers, and veterinarians have all struggled over labeling a specific breed of dog as being more dangerous than another. In the past, some cities and towns have outlawed some breeds, usually pit bulls and animals that are closely related.

However, communities are slowly overturning breed-specific legislation because of criticism from pet owners and advocates who believe dogs are not inherently vicious but improperly trained.

The truth is, every dog is capable of delivering a vicious attack but statistics consistently show certain breeds are more prone to delivering violent attacks than other breeds. Studies of press accounts dating back to 1982 show pit bulls, boxers, and other like-breeds have caused nearly 90 percent of the dog attacks resulting in hospitalization.

Although these statistics may be concerning, there is no clear evidence showing these breeds have more violent tendencies than others and many of the hospitalizations could be a result of the dog’s size and strength.

WHY Do Dogs Bite?

The United States is home to an estimated 80 million dogs. Most of these pets are well-trained and social around humans but animal experts say any dog is capable of suddenly attacking and it doesn’t matter if it’s a small or large breed.

Most often, the victim of vicious dog bite is a child. Recent studies have recorded attacks on children as young as 2 months and as old as 17 years but children between the ages of 4 and 7 are attacked the most.

Veterinarians studying animal behaviors have discovered that a child’s size and demeanor could be misunderstood as a threat by some dogs, resulting in a vicious dog bite. Nearly every breed of dog can exhibit territorial behavior over food, water, toys, or even another human or pet.

Experts warn parents to be cautious of allowing their children near unfamiliar dogs however experts say more children are hospitalized each year after suffering an attack from a dog familiar to them.
