When choosing from the multitude of dog breeds out there, it can be difficult to find all of the attributes you want in a loving pet. We all want something relatively cute, cuddly, and friendly stalking our homes and yards. Some dog breeds fit that description perfectly. But there are so-called “dangerous dogs” out there, too — some who have earned the label unfairly.
Dangerous dogs are relatively uncommon, all things considered. Sure, you’ll hear about the occasional dog attack. But given how many dogs Americans have as pets — roughly 78 million — running into dangerous dogs isn’t much of a concern. But what if you want to get your pet insured? Well, then owning certain dog breeds can become an issue.
