In the UK more people get bitten by Labradors than any other breed - apparently.


Brexit is like watching your library being burnt down by people who never learned to read.

That is correct. However there is a difference between a bite and some monstrous dog that looks capable of chewing through a rail line in one bite breaking bones and /or ripping your face off.

Isn't that just a fear fueled generalisation on the behalf of certain people Papa? A dog is a dog is a dog, they are all capable of being educated ;)

The BIG problem is a Labrador doesn't usually end up killing someone or crippling someone/scarring them for life, other breeds of dog do.

Labs bite more people simply because more people own them. Staffs and pit bulls often bite and do more damage because the owners have never trained them and probably have little idea on how to own and manage a dog. It's interesting to note that a larger than proportional amount of severe bites occur in deprived areas of the UK. Lack of education no exercise and poor nutrition, and that's before we even think of the dogs situation - what chance do they stand?

A truly savage breed, the Breton Basset Fauve...this one's called 'Weetabix', and ancient Gaul name.

Obelix, Asterix....Weetabix.

At least you're sensible and have it tethered, think of the damage it could do if it got loose?

She's 20kg of fearless wild-boar hunter. She only goes for dogs bigger than her....and then only if taken by surprise. She sounds like a much bigger dog which is useful...

Very intelligent and loads of fun, excellent guard dog, and can find her way home over 20km, crossing a Route Nationale, at night, without a map.

Having been around dogs all my life and for the last 40 concentrating on Old English Sheepdogs at 40kgs they have been known to break their owners legs simply by being over excited and running flat out into their owners, some would class that aggression. 50 years ago their reputation was aggressive but having not only to be a herding dog but also to guard their flock there had to be some have a go characteristics, that has since been bred out in most cases but it will defend its family, the family now being exchanged for the flock Young children running screaming when one of them is a member of the dogs family it could attack thinking the child is in danger i know of one incident where the dog had to be checked by a vet due to such an incident luckily no harm was done just lots of barking , growling and a lot of shoving and pushing by the dog
