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.
Like I said, a lot of it is because of some of our "finer" citizens possessing these kinds of dogs.
But there is no denying how strong they are and how vicious their attacks can be. How many dogs attack horses (one case with the cop still in the saddle)?
