So if strength is the deciding factor on danger these dogs should be right up there with Pit Bulls. They are not because the breed is NOT AGGRESIVE. Pit Bulls are aggressive coupled with being strong and you have the stats that someone above posted.
I don't believe that. I think that they were bred for dog fighting but they were also bred to not be agressive towards humans. The owners are at fault,many don't spay/neuter their dogs and don't socialize them. Many of the attacks happen when the dog is tied up outside.Never ever tie up your dog. If you don't have a yard for it then don't get one.
