Is there a more dangerous breed of dog?

Posted by Kenneth Doane | Dec 07, 2018 | 0 Comments

To some extent, statistics do back up the idea of a most dangerous breed of dog. Moreover, if one thinks about it, dogs that are larger are by their sheer size able to inflict more damage when they attack a human being as opposed to proverbial ankle-biter.

However, according to at least one expert in dog handling, the idea of dangerous breeds of dogs is largely a myth. In reality, how well a dog behaves, or does not behave, comes down to how well the dog has been socialized so that it understands how to act around people of all different types and in a variety of situations.

Socialization, in turn, is the responsibility of the dog's human master, as only he or she can give the dog the training and appropriate care it needs to be socialized. So, in the case of dog bites, it is perfectly fair for the laws of Indiana to impose liability on the owner of the animal that did the attacking, as they are arguably responsible in fact for the behavior of their dogs.

In any event, a person who get hurt by a dog of whatever breed has legal options available to him or her. One such option is the filing of a lawsuit that can include seeking compensation for items like medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
