So many people have developed a fear of this breed. Are they really as dangerous as all the bad press would like you to believe? From a bit of research I did a while back, I discovered that pit bull and rottweiler bites are indeed the most dangerous. However, they are not necessarily the most frequent biters.
Any dog, if mistreated, may turn vicious. There is even an instance of a four pound Pomeranian killing an infant. So obviously there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to which dogs may turn vicious.
I know plenty of people with loving pit bulls who are horrified by all the bad press and bad news about their favorite breed. Their dogs are part of the family, and they would never part with them. Dogs are individual, and it is apparent that there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to which breed will bite. Of course, the best protection against this is having a dog that was raised in a loving manner.
