Most people in Connecticut have likely heard stories about how aggressive some breeds of dogs can be. German Shepherds, Akitas and Doberman Pinschers are commonly among the types of dogs that people say can be involved in serious attacks on other animals or on people. However, it may be the pit bull that gets the most attention when it comes to discussions about dog bites and attacks. 

At the same time as many people point to the dangerous nature of pit bulls, there are a slew of people who laud the loving and fun nature of these dogs. Many an owner of a pit bull has argued vehemently that their dogs are kind, sweet and would never hurt another creature. It can be hard to know where the truth really is when it comes to how dangerous or safe one can feel when around a pit bull but the fact remains that numerous accounts of attacks regarding these dogs continue to be heard.

One such story took place in Stratford just a few months ago and involved two pit bulls attacking a boy who was only 13 years old as he walked a smaller dog for his aunt. According to ABC 7 New York, the dogs got out of their yard or home and went after the boy, pinning him up against a tree as he attempted to hold onto the smaller dog to save it from being hurt. Upon being bitten, the dog was dropped but saved by another person. The boy's injuries required stitches in his face and arm.

In July of this year, NBC Connecticut reported that a pit bull attacked and killed a chihuahua in Waterbury.
