What Dog Breeds are Most Dangerous?

It can be argued that the breed of a dog is not a significant factor in determining how aggressive the animal will be, and that aggressive tendencies are a result of training and rearing. Regardless of whether or not that may be true, however, in practical application it is still completely valid to identify which breeds are most dangerous based on their size, strength, and how often the particular breed is involved in attacks.

Dog owners have the responsibility to be familiar with their pets, aware of their personalities, and take steps to ensure that potentially dangerous situations do not arise. If you or someone you know has been injured in a dog attack, contact the Cincinnati personal injury lawyers of Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733 to discuss your case with a qualified personal injury attorney.

Top 10 Dangerous Breeds

Research by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the CDC, and the Humane Society has indicated that the following ten breeds, in ascending order, are the most dangerous in the world:

  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Rottweiler
  • German Shepherd
  • Siberian Husky
  • Alaskan Malamute
  • Doberman Pinscher
  • Chow Chow
  • Great Dane
  • St Bernard
  • Presa Canario

It is important to note that while the breeds listed below are statistically more likely to be involved in a dangerous incident, an individual animal is not inherently dangerous simply because it is of a certain breed. By the same token, any dog can become aggressive and dangerous, regardless of their size or breed.
