Well at least in the end it didn't turn out to be a real dog. Plus your injuries if any were probably less than the damage said dog could have done.
12 - The biggest contributing factor in aggressive behavior in any breed of dog is the way they have been trained and treated by their owners. You could have the biggest, strongest, fastest, and most commonly ferocious dog breed there is and they can still be completely safe around people, even small children, due to proper training, adequate exercise, and loving treatment by their owners. Contrariwise, you could have a smaller dog breed that is weak, slow, and normally docile and they can become extremely aggressive and violent towards everybody, including their owners, because of how they have been mistreated, a lack of adequate exercise, and a lack of proper training.
My German Shepard lets my kids crawl on her and bite her. She just whines and carefully removes herself from harm. But if you try to break in she is trained to eat you alive. I love my dog. I have friends that come over all the time, and all she does is lick them. But,, UPS guys always seem to piss her off. Probably because they run up to the house, ring the door bell and take off. She thinks that is fishy.
18, exactly I have both a chow and pit bull and they both love attention and are very good with kids and small animals(though the chow doesn't like cats very much). They would only ever be aggressive if we were in danger. It really is all about training and how the dogs/ pet is treated.
