Dog bite injuries can have serious consequences for victims, both physically and emotionally. If you've experienced a dog bite injury, it's important to understand your rights and legal options.

Dogs are enjoyable companions; however, they are not always completely safe.  There are several large breeds of dogs that are notoriously known to be aggressive, but they are not the only danger.  Dogs of any breed, age or gender can be aggressive if they are handled, treated or restrained incorrectly.

First and foremost, seeking medical attention should be your top priority.  Even seemingly minor dog bites can lead to infections or other complications if not treated promptly.

Once you’ve received medical care, consider consulting with a personal injury attorney who specializes in dog bite cases. They can help you navigate the legal process and determine if you have grounds for a claim.

In many cases, dog owners can be held liable for injuries caused by their pets. Whether the dog has a history of aggression or the owner failed to properly restrain their animal, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

While any dog breed can pose a risk, certain breeds have historically been associated with more frequent and severe attacks. Here are the top seven breeds known for their potential danger:

  1. Pit Bull: Known for their strength and history in dogfighting, pit bulls are responsible for a significant number of fatal attacks.
  2. Rottweiler: With a powerful build and protective instincts, Rottweilers can become aggressive, particularly in unfamiliar situations.
  3. American Bulldog: Strong and agile, American Bulldogs have the potential to cause serious harm when they attack.
  4. Doberman Pinscher: Bred as guard dogs, Dobermans can exhibit aggressive behavior, especially if they perceive a threat.
  5. Wolfdogs: A mix of wolf and domestic dog genes, wolfdogs can be unpredictable and may display aggression, particularly toward smaller animals.
  6. German Shepherd: Often used in military and police work, German Shepherds can be territorial and aggressive if not properly trained and socialized.
  7. Huskies: While typically friendly, huskies have a strong prey drive and may exhibit aggression, especially in certain situations.


Several factors contribute to the danger posed by these breeds, including genetics, learned behaviors, socialization, and environmental factors. Their physical strength and hunting instincts also play a role in their potential for causing severe injuries or fatalities.


Aggression in dogs can be influenced by breed characteristics, genetic predisposition, and environmental factors. Breeds bred for fighting, hunting, or guarding may have a stronger instinct for aggression. Additionally, lack of training, socialization, and responsible ownership can contribute to aggressive behavior.


If you’ve been attacked by a dog, it’s crucial to report the incident to local authorities. Many states have laws prohibit dogs from roaming in public places, and many cities have leash ordinances. Victims of dog attacks may also have legal options to pursue compensation for damages, including medical expenses and emotional distress.
