What Are the Most Dangerous Breeds?
Certain dog breeds have a bad reputation for being particularly aggressive. In reality, any dog can be aggressive and territorial, but not all breeds are capable of causing serious injury. Based on both accident statistics, and on their potential to cause life-threatening injuries, the most dangerous breeds include:
- Pit bull
- German Shepherd
Texas does not have any statewide breed-specific laws, but some jurisdictions do restrict the ownership of certain breeds like pit bulls. While these dogs can be particularly dangerous, even smaller dogs can cause serious injuries.
You don’t pay unless we win. Call SJ Injury Attorneys today at (281) 688-6880.
Who is Liable for Your Injuries?
In Texas, you are only able to recover damages from the owner of the dog if they knew or had reason to believe that the dog was potentially dangerous. While previous bites or attacks are obviously an indicator of future danger, the following can also be indicators of potential danger:
- Barking, growling, or snapping at strangers
- Fighting with other dogs
- Any fight training
- Prior complaints about the dog
