What kinds of dogs have a tendency to bite people?
Although in their minds, most people associate certain dogs with aggressive behavior and biting, but the fact is that all dogs could potentially bite someone. While it is true that some breeds of dogs are more likely to bite, there are situations in which any type of dog would likely bite a person. These instances where a dog might be more likely to bite are when they are startled, provoked, feel threatened, guarding something that they believe to be theirs, protecting their owners, or are in heat. If it appears as those a dog is displaying one of these charasteristics, you should back away from the dog and try not to provoke it in any way.
