Do These 3 Dog Breeds Cause the Most Injuries in New Hampshire?
Many people argue that certain dog breeds are considered to be more dangerous than others. While there is room for debate over which dogs cause the most injuries, one thing is for sure - a dog bite can be painful.
While the phrase – “dangerous dog breed,” tends to conjure up images of pit bulls, there are many breeds on the list, including the Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd and Rottweiler.
- Doberman Pinschers: The Doberman Pinscher breed originated from Germany, and if domesticated, is considered to be loyal, intelligent and alert. They are particularly loyal to their master, but can be aggressive towards strangers. They do not like rivalry with other canines. Doberman Pinschers can become particularly aggressive when their owners lack guidance, do not give them enough attention or subject them to abuse.
- German Shepherds: The German Shepherd originated from Germany, as well. They are considered to be extremely intelligent, strong and obedient, which may be the reason that many police officers and military establishments utilize them as guard dogs. They are commonly more aggressive towards smaller dogs.
- Rottweilers: The Rottweiler, also known as the Butcher dog, is considered energetic, intelligent and hardy. The Rottweiler breed becomes particularly aggressive when they are subject to neglect and abuse. When there is a lack of proper training, Rottweilers can pose a threat to the local community, especially if they get free.
