dangerous dog lists are very subjective. most dogs must be trained to bite. there are a few breeds that are given to biting more than others, i dont care for chows. they will never growl and bite. i am a doberman owner and they are a breed people want on the dangerous dog list. any one who has experience with dobs knows how sillie that concept is. maybe 30 years ago ...but not now...the problem with a doberman is simply the amount of damage a single bite will do. i saw the post that goldens are number 3 biters..correct me if i am wrong...i think labs were listed...o hell let me find the list Top Ten (10) Most Dangerous Dog Breeds | Pets Do #1 pitt bull #2 rottweilers # 3 german shephards #4 huskies #5 alaskan malmutes #6 doberman pinschers (hell yea i am not just letting this one pass either ) Dobermans are great guard dogs for their alertness, intelligence and loyalty. They can be agressive dogs when provoked. The typical pet Doberman attacks only if it believes that it, its property, or its family are in danger. #7 chow chow the favorite dog of marth stewart #8 Presa Canario now i want to know how the hell this dog gets 8? breeders routinely muzzle them and owners do to for a good reason...this is the breed that attacked the woman in sf killing her in the hall....the dog outweighted her about 70 lb or so #9 boxer....in defense of boxers they are territorial #10 dalmatians...now who knew so there you have it...pitts bulls are considered more dangerous that a presa...the list is a sham...now i do not think it is fair at all if your dog is a larger dog not to make sure that your neighbors are at peace with it.....i have told each of my neighbors if push ever came to shove to err on the side of caution...working with my neighbors has allowed me to keep my dogs free on my land but i do not kid myself...i see their tracks in the snow heading to see the dogs next door etc but my dogs stay inside much of the time ...i do not chain them that makes a dog aggressive. i would never allow a pit bull to live next to kids...little kids like to mess with dogs thru fences or worse dogs that are on chains... so should people be concerned with "breeds" or the owners? i say the owners. it takes a certain type to own these dogs. o and i have all my dogs neutered and spade...males should be neutered by 6 months...females around the same. and yalls opinions would be?
