LOL!

I recently found this:

http://www.curiosityaroused.com/nature/top-10-most-dangerous-dog-breeds-based-on-bite-fatalities/

Coming in at #7:

Dobermann
Known to be one of the most aggressive breeds of dogs ever, the Doberman Pinscher was one of the most recognizable dog breeds as they were used extensively as guard dogs.
They were bred for the specific purpose of guarding their masters, and thus had to be aggressive but also intelligent.
Trained properly, these dogs can become very loyal to their masters, but aggressive towards perceived threats to their owners.
***Being responsible for 9 fatalities, most of these were notably in defense of their owners.***

So I’m not seeing the problem, here.

:)

It’s hard to take seriously a site that can’t spell “German Shepherd” or do it consistently. Yet they can spell “Rottweiler”.

Never mind calling them “sheep guards” rather than the purpose indicated by their name.

I’m also not fond of “husky”. Is this just a Siberian Husky, or many SPITZ-type dogs?

I don’t dispute the absolute numbers, just that percentage is more important. Some of them are extremely popular, while others not so much.
