Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds in the U.S.

Dogs are known as man's best friend. They are loyal, keep us company and are typically great protectors of the family unit. Unfortunately, their animal instincts can get them into trouble as they attempt to not only protect themselves but their "pack." According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are about 4.5 million dog bite incidents every single year. Out of that number, over 880,000 people have to seek some kind of medical attention. For some more severe incidents, the victims of dog bites have to receive reconstructive surgery and in 2012, 38 individuals were killed by due to fatal dog attacks.

While any dog breed has the potential to become dangerous, especially if they feel the need to protect themselves, there are some breeds that are much more commonly involved in these types of incidents than others. Not to mention, these dangerous dog breeds also have more of a capability to inflict serious damage due to their size.
