But there are plenty of cases of certain dog breeds, like pit bulls, attacking people out of the blue, with no history of violence. I certainly haven’t heard any stories about labradors or retrievers going Cujo all of a sudden.
I have, jack russels are known for biting people but as they smaller dogs people dont care so much.Labs do bite, i seen a few ones which can act defensive, i also know a shitzu which hates guests... my point is we can cherry pick situations. The thing with pitbulls is it attracts a certain type of owner and so that person is a bad owner and you hear these horrible stories.The Staffy is a good example, years ago (and still to some people) it is known as the nanny dog (google nanny dog) they are of "pit bull" type but are huge softies... but they got taken on by people wanting a "tough" dog... and... we suddenly start hearing about staffies biting people
