In a recent study released by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, it was revealed that over a combined 17 year study more than 25 people in Canada were killed by dogs attacks - with many others suffering serious, non-fatal injuries.

While many of these fatalities and injuries occurred in rural, unsupervised areas it's important to note that the circumstances and ages of those that have been attacked varied greatly from incident to incident.

If you or someone you love has been killed or suffered a personal injury due to the bite of a dog that was owned by another person, that victim or their family may be eligible to receive compensation for their injuries and the costs associated with caring for those damages.

Types of Known Aggressive Dog Breeds

Despite almost any dog being able to bite and injure someone, there are some specific breeds that consistently show up in dog bite reports and are known for their overly protective - or outright aggressive - nature.

Some of the most common include:

Pit Bull - Despite Ontario adopting a province-wide pit-bull ban in 2005, these dogs are still considered a threat. The American Staffordshire and Staffordshire bull terrier are common breeds of this animal and are known to be very aggressive to

both humans and other dogs. The American Staffordshire in particular is one of the most widely-legislated breeds in Canada.

Rottweiler - these dogs are a very old breed that have been acknowledged as one of the oldest herding breeds in the world. Due to this heritage, their desire to hunt prey can take a great amount of training to suppress.

German Shepherd - commonly associated with many law enforcement agencies around the world, German Shepherds can weigh up to 35 kgs, and stand at more than 60 cm high - which is almost the same size as a Malamute. Known for their intelligence and aggressiveness, this breed is known to be in Top 3 of the world's most dangerous dogs.

Husky - considered to be one of - if not the - oldest breeds of dogs worldwide, Huskies were originally not considered to be a good guard dog. However, due to their combination of size, strength and intelligence, they have become a common breed throughout Canada. Well known for their ability to work in a pack environment, Huskies are also skilled large-game hunters, which can be difficult to tame for dogs living in a civilized environment.

Akita - originally from the northern parts of Japan, Akitas have a similar double coat to that of the Husky, that are very territorial and very intolerant of other dogs that are the same gender. It's also important to note that these dogs were never bred to live or work in group-type environments, which makes them very unsuitable for off-leash dog parks and other multiple-dog situations.
