We wish we could say that all dog breeds were safe.  We wish we could say that every time a dog attacks a human, another dog, or another animal wasn’t said dog’s fault.  But remember folks, dogs are animals first and foremost just like we humans are.  And some animal species are inherently more dangerous than other species.  It’s just the way it is.  We’re not posting this article to discourage you from buying these dog breeds.  We just want to make you aware of the statistics out there.  The Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association conducted a twenty year study on the most dangerous dog breeds, and here are the top 10 most dangerous dog breeds based on the amount of fatalities they have caused.  *We should also note that NONE of these breeds are really all that dangerous and don’t be afraid to purchase any of them


10.  St Bernard – Only seven fatalities so it’s not like this breed is terribly dangerous.   The real reason for their danger is their sheer size.   St. Bernards are actually pretty lovable and affectionate dogs.

9.  Great Dane – Another dog with seven fatalities so again, not too dangerous.  The Great Dane, like the St. Bernard can be troublesome because of its sheer size.  These are some big dogs.


8.  Chow Chow – according to the study the Chow Chow has been responsible for eight fatalities.  The Chow Chow does have an aggressive personality, especially around strangers and other pets.


7.  Doberman Pinscher – 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.  Dobermans accounted for 9 fatalities in the study but most deaths were caused in defense of their owners.
