Regardless of breed, it is wise to be cautious around all dogs

Most Georgia residents have dogs in their homes. From tiny teacup dogs to huge great Danes, these animals mean a lot to people. We love dogs, too, and welcome them into our families, but we also know that some of them can be dangerous.

Even family dogs can be dangerous and put people at risk for dog bites and attacks. Most people associate dog bites with breeds including pit bulls, Dobermans, German shepherds and Rottweilers. In truth, any breed of dog can pose bite risks under the right (or wrong) circumstances.

Dogs that have been abused, isolated, trained to attack or not socialized with people or pets may be more prone to attack. However, even a beloved pet can act out of character occasionally and snap at you, your kids or your guests. The point we hope to make is that is always wise to practice caution around animals.

If you do not know a dog at all, be extra careful. In fact, it might not be a bad idea to avoid the animal altogether. If you have spent time with a friend's dog, it is still important to be careful and treat the animal with respect. Your own pets also deserve respect in tandem with copious amounts of love and kindness.

We want to add that it is important to do something when pets attack people. Holding the animal's owner legally responsible provides at least two major benefits. First, it empowers to you acquire compensation for any injuries suffered, which you will need to recover from your wounds. Second, it gives the law the power to ensure a dangerous animal is taken away from the public so that it will never injure another human being. Please learn more about animal attacks on our website.
