Are overly aggressive dogs the product of their environment or is it simply in the nature of dangerous breeds of dogs to be violent? Well, the answer is not a simple one, it’s both yes and no. Many extremely aggressive dog breeds have earned their dangerous reputations due to their apparent predisposition to violence and aggression. However, there is also merit in looking at the nurture of puppies who eventually grow into vicious dogs. Who are these overly aggressive canines? The three top dangerous breeds of dogs are:
The American Pit Bull Terrier
Selective breeding has resulted in aggressive and dangerous dogs with incredible jaw strength and a quite destructive bite style known as the “hold and shake.” These traits were originally desired to help the dog inflict the worst possible damage while baiting bulls in the 18th century. Pit Bulls are known to inflict the most serious bite wounds of any of the viscous dogs in this list, and they are by far responsible for the most serious injuries inflicted in a dog bite attack. Most fatal cases involve a Pit Bull at some level.
The Rottweiler hails from Germany and can be an extremely devoted and obedient guardian. These dogs have been highly sought after since the early 90’s as home protection, due in part to their massive size, devotion to their family and intelligence. However; bites from a Rottweiler can be especially ruinous due in part to the sheer size and strength of the head and mouth. The sad truth is that they often attack when they perceive a threat, real or not. Bad judgement on the part of the dog, or a misconception can have deadly results.
The Doberman can be a very friendly dog, and fiercely loyal to their owners. Naturally aggressive dogs, Doberman Pinschers are easily pushed to violence if they detect any hostility or aggression in people or other animals. Their natural tenacity will keep a Doberman attacking and biting until called off by their master.
These dangerous breeds of dogs are quite likely to bite on a whim. If you or a family member has been bitten by a vicious dog, it is time to call a dog bite lawyer. There is a statute of limitations, so it is important to contact a dog bite attorney who is versed in personal injury law as quickly as possible.
Pain and suffering can be extensive while recovering from a vicious dog’s attack and the right dog bite lawyer can help to ease some of the burden. If bitten, the first order of business is to visit the closest emergency room. Once the victim has received medical care, the next call should be to a good dog bite attorney.
