Dangerous Dog Breeds

This is a very controversial area and data can be difficult to compile given the numerous amount of dogs of multiple breeds. According to Merritt Clifton, editor of Animals 24-7, the following is the list of the dogs responsible for the most number of deaths from 1982 to 2009:

  1. Pit Bull Terrier
  2. Rottweiler
  3. Wolf hybrid
  4. Husky
  5. German Shepherd
  6. Bullmastiff (presa canario)
  7. Chow
  8. Akita

You should always consult with your veterinarian or an animal behavioral expert prior to adopting any type of dog to figure out if their temperament is right for your family.
