Dog Breeds That Have Attacked the Most People
Dog experts will tell you that there is no specific breed of dog that is more dangerous than another. Nor is there a specific group of canines considered "breeds of dogs that bite." Any dog from any breed can have a history of aggression. If you know that a dog has a history of aggression, you should avoid it and bringing it into your home.
While there are no specific breeds of dogs that bite, there are statistics that support the idea that some breeds and types of dogs are more aggressive than others are. American Humane Association says that an estimated 4.7 million dog bites occur annually. About 92 percent involve male dogs, 94 percent of which were not neutered.
While some dogs have acquired a bad reputation for being among breeds of dogs that bite, such as:
- Pit bulls
- Bull mastiffs
- Doberman Pinschers
Some studies have illustrated statistics indicating smaller dog breeds have a greater tendency to bite family members, such as:
- Jack Russell terriers
- Shih Tzus

No matter what the breed, if you have suffered a dog attack and are seeking Phoenix dog attack lawyers, you cannot waste any time.
