As a matter of fact, a recent study by the Applied of Animal Science determined that the three breeds most likely to attack people areBan them! They are born with a provclivity to attack. The big problem is the very way they are built, their larger than usual jaw size, amazing upper body dtrength, combined with owners who do not always understand the importance of training, or leash laws that often are broken. So many stories of children being attacked, disfiqured for life! Or worse, they die. I dont recall hearing a story about a jack russel, or lab, or many other dogs behaving so unpredictably. Yes some responsibility is on the owners. But stupid people are not going to go away. At the very least these owners should be force to take out ins. In case of tragidy, or worse death. If their animal doesnt bite , then they have no worries. Why should innocent children have 2 class citizenship over dogs! Protect our children!
3. JACK RUSSELLS
While Jack Russell may have a reputation as sweet dogs (and believe me, I think they truly are because I have had 2 and talked to many other owners!), pit bulls have a very bad reputation. You may want to read this article from a few years back:
Pitbulls are only responsible for approximately 5% of dog attacks against humans per year and 8% of all attacks altogether. You do have to watch them more around other dogs, as the percentages of attack are honestly higher there, but that's what fences and leashes are for. Responsible dog owners have both, and it's seriously the owner's responsibility to keep their dogs out of oter people's yards no matter what the breed is.
