Before you get a dog, you’d want to do some pretty extensive research, right? You want to know which dog breed is best for households with kids or lots of adults. You want to know which breeds would fare best in a big house or in a small city apartment. You want to know which of them would get along with other pets, and which would require the most exercise.
Most of all, you want to know which breed of dog is most likely to cause harm to humans.
To get that info, we’ve decided to simplify the information we got from Dogsbite.org wherein they outlined the dog breeds that are notorious biters. The study was conducted over the course of 32 years (1982 – 2014) in both Canada and USA.
So here are the top ten dog breeds that are have a history of biting.
23 incidences of bodily harm, 8 deaths.
61 incidences of bodily harm, 8 deaths.
70 incidences of bodily harm, 8 deaths.
7. Pit bull-mix
206 incidences of bodily harm, 12 deaths.
