Only if the breed was clearly and correctly identified — hence the stance that the CDC has taken. Even THEY seem to recognize that this is not happening in the vast majority of the cases.... not to mention the various factors involved: intact dog attacks versus non, dogs chained versus not, provoked attacks, etc... No way to track that — but happily for the media there are always the gullible who are willing to believe everything they dish out and accept it as Gospel truth — even here among supposed conservatives.
How many articles are there about setters, spaniels, poodles, labs, wolfhounds, deerhounds, shepherds, beagles, Great Danes, etc., attacking, maiming and killing people.
Enjoy this brick wall of reality.
-Every- dog is “the wolf in your living room”.
We forget that to our eternal peril.
Dogs is dogs and dogs got teeth.
Two dogs or more is a pack and will act like it.
I was born into a family with dogs.
I have obedience/protection trained Dobermanns since I was 14.
I have rescued countless Dobes from God-knows-what backgrounds, rehabbed and trained the to CDX levels and rescued Ibizan Hounds for 20 years.
I have never been bitten by a dog whether it was mine or somebody else’s, in spite of being exposed to literally thousands of them in people’s yards or junk yards.
