Breeds of Dog Most Responsible for Bites on Humans

While the breeds most reported to be associated with human fatalities are pit bulls and rottweilers, most dog bites actually come from mixed breeds (often identified as 'pit bulls' whether they are or not) and small dogs. The best way to prevent dog bites are for dog owners to obey leash laws and correctly socialize their pets, and for parents to teach their children not to approach strange dogs without careful supervision.
