Well this is a little upsetting. I have to disagree with a lot of this topic. For example chows, sharpaii and long coat akitas are also very agresive breed. A neighbor has 2 chihuahua and they have tryed to bite children. Another neighboor has a cocker spaniel and its bit a child in the face causing him to have a scar 1 inch acoss his cheeck. I dont know if they have reaslized that a lot of this has to do with traning. Why not give a sytation to the Owner of the pet. Why doesnt the cocker spaniel make it on the morning news. Why does the previous mention breeds (chow, sharpii and akitas) not get mentioned. Probably beause you must pay over 1 K to acctually buy this breed. So now your to broke to afford training. maybe they should do a back ground check at the animal shelters before releasing a dog.
