Pit Bulls: Are There Dangerous Breeds?

Over the years, different breeds have received national attention as supposedly dangerous dogs. In the past, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, and Doberman Pinschers have all had their moments in the media spotlight. These days, pit bulls are the dogs that people seem most concerned about.

There are valid reasons for this concern. Pit bulls are only around 3% of our country’s total dog population, yet are involved in around 50% of severe dog attacks. These statistics have given some people the impression that they are inherently dangerous animals.

The truth is that pit bulls’ reputation for "fierceness" have made them popular among people who want vicious dogs. They are often trained by their owners to be aggressive. In addition, they are a very strong breed with a high endurance for pain. This can make them very dangerous when they attack. When they are well trained, however, they are generally no more likely to attack than other breeds.

A bite from any dog breed can be a serious injury. Even a bite from a small dog carries the risk of infection and other complications. If you have been bitten by a dog of any breed, contact a Phoenix dog attack lawyer to discuss your legal rights.
