Default German shepherd listed at #2 most likely to turn on owner....

Hey guys I havent posted in a while, being busy with school, but I recently ran up on this list that was entitled "25 dangerous dog breeds most likely to turn on their owners" as it was dealing with dogs I figured I'd have look. I was nearly shocked to see that the German Shepherd was #2 on the list. Now, I know that the GSD is known for being protective and likely to attack in defense of their loved ones, but turning on their owners? You've got to be kiding me. I know my one year old, the same one who has a kitten as her best friend, would not turn on me. I was just wanting to see all of your opinions on this. Here is the link to the list: http://www.dognotebook.com/15-danger...heir-owners/2/

Reads like a list of "Dog's you don't want to bite you" more than a list of dogs prone to turning. No small dogs on that list.

I wouldn't dispute the list. They gave good descriptions of what the breeds on the list were bred for and capable of.

Its an opinion based article. Similar to garbage you read in the Huffington Post

Across the board the most dangerous breeds listed by everyone are the top 4 in this article. You would be hard pressed not to find a GSD on a dangerous breed list pretty much anywhere. It's always been Pits, Rotts and GSD's for as long as I can remember.

Working in a boarding facility, I'm WAY more likely on any given day to be bitten by Daschunds or Chihuahuas than anything else. In fact, the only serious bite I've ever had at work was from a Bichon. I almost had to leave work to get stitches. GSD's, Rotties, Pits, etc may be capable of more damage when they do bite, but the most likely to bite me is not among those breeds.

I've always heard that German shepherd were capable of being dangerous. But I just thought it was a little ridiculous to make a list claiming they turn on their owners. I actually think it's a little ridiculous to single out any specific breed. Any mistreated or dog, not in its right mind is just as likely to become aggressive as another. But you're right, it doesn't surprise me that its common for GSD's to end up on these lists.

I too have been chomped on by a chihuahua, i cant say it hurt but it went from fine to bat crap crazy in about .2 seconds.
Andrew has been nailed by a mini dachshund, it did not hurt him either but it did spray anal gland all over his new pants.
