Judge the Deed (and, more importantly, what lead up to it), Not the Breed

TASA ID: 2287

Calls often come in asking me to opine on the inherent dangerous nature of certain breeds (i.e., American Pit Bull Terrier or Rottweiler). Attorneys are often both surprised and annoyed when I tell them, “No.” Instead, I advise looking into the stewardship of the dog, whereupon neglect is usually found.
