Some breeds of dogs may be more dangerous than others due to their size, but there is no way to predict whether or not a dog will bite or attack a person. According to the American Veterinary Association, there are five factors that influence a dog’s behavior. They are heredity, early experience, socialization and training, health, and the behavior of the victim. While Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, and German Shepherds have a stereotype of aggressive behavior against them, there are still other breeds that have the opposite image but still cause serious injuries.
