Many residents in Connecticut enjoy the love and companionship of dogs. Much research has been conducted proving the positive impact that pets can have on people of all ages. However, the realities of dog bit injuries cannot be overlooked no matter how much you may love your dog. Every pet owner must assume the responsibility that goes along with having a dog especially the dog breed is known to be particularly dangerous to others.
An article published on CuriousityAroused.com identified 10 of the most dangerous dog breeds known today. On the list are three breeds that, while not known to have aggressive temperaments and may even be prized for their passivity, are considered dangers because of their extremely large sizes. These are the Alaskan Malamute, the Great Dane and the St. Bernard. The Husky and Wolf-Dog Hybrids were listed as they are so closely related to wolves which are liable to attack humans. Because Huskies prefer to be very active, they tend to get aggressive when they do not get enough exercise or when their owners do not train them well.
Bored or under-exercised Chow-Chows can be very hostile, especially to strangers. Doberman Pinschers and German Shepherds can be among the best guard dogs and very loyal to their owners but the combination of their size and intelligence can lead to aggressive behaviors in certain situations. It is likely no surprise that Pitbulls and Rottweilers were noted as the top two most dangerous dog breeds. Rottweilers have very strong prey instincts and can have sudden outbursts. The breeding of Pitbulls is not even allowed in some places anymore.
