You may never have heard this story if it involved a poodle or a golden or any other breed deemed acceptable by the media. I have been bit twice both times by small dogs but ultimately it is the owner who is to blame. If I would have ever let Buddy behave so poorly people would have reported the giant vicious dog but not the small vicious one. There are always signs except maybe a medical condition that a dog would just snap.
A dog has so many friends because they wag their tails not their tongues.
