Some of the most dangerous dogs to attack a person are pit bulls. Although they make up a small percentage of the overall dog population, pit bulls are responsible for many of the injuries and even fatalities that result from dog bites and attacks.

However, pit bulls are not the only dogs that are dangerous. People should be aware of any dog that seems as if they are dangerous and could possibly attack at any time.

Research Shows Pit Bulls Propensity for Biting

Dr. Finocchio of the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Against Animals believes that pit bulls are genetically predisposed to being aggressive, since they were originally bred to be fighting dogs as far back as the Roman Empire. Violent behavior is thought to be ingrained in pit bulls, resulting in dog bites. The result of this behavior – attacks on humans – especially helpless children.

Pit bull attacks almost always cause open wounds and scarring, many times to the faces of young kids. Pit bulls have a tendency to not show any signs of aggression before they attack. Their hair does not stand on end, nor to they growl or bark prior to biting someone.  The adrenaline in a pit bull does not stop during an attack.

This means that a pit bull will continue to maul, even if the dog was previously familiar with the victim. Dr. Finocchio believes that although pit bulls may not always bite more frequently than other breeds, it is the viciousness of the bite that inflicts so much damage. When pit bulls bite, the power comes from their back legs, and the dog will violently shake a victim, ripping and tearing the body, unlike other breeds such as a Doberman or German shepherds, according to Dr. Finocchio.
