I've got an American Bulldog and I walk him on a community trail everyday. He is as playful and non-aggressive as they come. But not a day goes by where we don't pass by another dog walker that has a little ankle biting dog that the owner is holding back because it is barking and trying to charge my dog. I don't think my dog even has it in him to fight but you know damn good and well that if he ever retaliated to one of those little yip, yip dogs biting him it would be ugly and everyone would blame the big dog that didn't start it. Owners of small dogs don’t properly discipline them because they think it is “cute” and don’t feel like they are any danger to any one so as a result they are usually the most aggressive and poorly behaved dogs.
thanks for bringing some logic into the thread. much appreciated.
