***The study showed that the most popular large breed dogs at any one time were consistently on the list of breeds that bit fatally.
**There were a high number of fatal bites from Doberman pinschers in the 1970s, for example, because Dobermans were very popular at that time and there were more Dobermans around, and because Dobermans’ size makes their bites more dangerous.
***The number of fatal bites from pit bulls rose in the 1980s for the same reason, and the number of bites from Rottweilers in the 1990s.
***The study also noted that there are no reliable statistics for nonfatal dog bites, so there is no way to know how often smaller breeds are biting.
LISTEN UP PEOPLE BECAUSE THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART:
In other words, ”Biting has more to do with circumstances, behavior, training (or lack thereof), and ignorance on the part of human beings.”
