There is one dog more dangerous, than any other…. one dog that has attacked more people, killed more people, maimed more people. Just what is the most dangerous dog in the world?
A six week old baby was killed in Los Angels, California, by a Pomeranian in 2001. The attack occurred when the baby sitter left to warm up a bottle of milk.
Should we consider the Pomeranian to be the most dangerous dog?
In 2008 a 2 month old child in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was left alone in a swing, with a Labrador Retriever puppy, and a Pug, as nobody saw the attack it is assumed that the Lab was the killer.
Should we consider the Labrador Retriever to be the most dangerous dog?
It is not hard to find a list of dog attacks on kids, if we look hard enough we might even find that every breed has attacked at some point. When we look for such articles we find one thing is often a common factor. More often than not, the dog was not supervised, and not socialized.
Dogs and children should never be left alone together, even for a moment.
When an attack happens, the dog gets the blame, blame which should also be shared by the guardian of the child for leaving the dog and the child alone together, even for a second. It does not take much for a baby to trigger a dog to attack, or for a playful dog to go too far.
Dogs and children should NEVER be left alone together.
The most dangerous dog in the world is the one that is not supervised.
