Breed is not what causes dog bites. Any dog is capable of causing injury, although, thankfully the majority of dogs never will.

In some circumstances, dogs that bite, do so to protect themselves. This can happen because the people around that dog have failed to spot the signs. Dogs don’t tend to bite without warning.

Another reason, is that some dog owners (very few thankfully) train their dogs to be aggressive. The dog is not to be blamed and the owner should face punishment for training the dog in such a way. Sometimes these dogs can be retrained and rehomed.

One thing is certain though, the breed of a dog is not the reason for dog bites. Many factors play a part and we should not allow BSL to continue to take the lives of innocent dogs.
