Do lawyers see many dog bite cases involving Doberman Pinschers?

You likely already know this, but it is important to point out that any breed of dog can bite humans. Having said that, you may also know that large dogs like the Rottweiler, the pit bull and the Doberman are usually cited as the worst dog bite offenders. In fact, many of the popular online lists of dangerous dog breeds include Doberman Pinschers.

Since Dobermans are quite popular in the state of Georgia, the easiest way to answer your question is to say yes, injury attorneys do handle dog bite cases involving Dobermans. However, you should understand that several factors could make a dog, regardless of its breed, dangerous to humans. If you are asking about Dobermans because you wish to own one or because one has attacked you, it may help to learn more about the breed.

Naturally boisterous, protective and energetic, a Doberman Pinscher is not born dangerous. Those cared for by a loving family that routinely exposes them to different people are typically able to keep any natural aggressive tendencies in check. According to many animal experts, socialization with people is one of the best ways to teach Dobermans not to attack.

This breed also benefits from consistent, calm leadership and a total absence of teasing and mistreatment. Families with children should teach their kids to handle these animals with respect at all times, which may also help curtail aggression.

If you have suffered a dog bite from a Doberman and are considering a legal action, try to learn as much as possible about the animal. If you can show that the animal's owner encouraged the attack or raised the animal to be vicious, it might help your case. A personal injury attorney is also a good source of advice about pursuing a lawsuit.
