Standing at number 30 something, the beagle now is classified a dangerous dog. Also, my favorite breed like the little girl I have, the Border Collie, is on there also. :faint:


So... yes, I would say Trigger is very dangerous considering the bites all over my hands. To be classified... scary to own a "dangerous dog" isn't it? I think it is a myth. I think the dangerous dog breed, should be the very rare- only one in the world- Trigger breed. Very dominat and agressive but makes cute puppy faces. :rolleyes:

LOL silly.
No one should classify an entire breed for the actions of some in that breed. It's distrcimination if we said all white people are welfare drug atticts just because I know 10 in my neighboorhood.
Ignorance is no excuse. People are lazy and do not want to tackle a source of the problem.

Dangerous Dogs, Ranked By Breed: Pit Bulls, Chows Chows Lead - The Daily Beast

If you click there and then go to the Gallery there number 37 is a beagle. This only takes into account registered beagles and presents the following statistics as justification for placing it in the top 39

Registered dogs (U.S.): 39,484
Child victims: 2
Adult victims: 0
Maimings: 1
Deaths: 1

It doesn't provide the year...and when looking in percentages of the 39,000+ REGISTERED beagles attacks resulting in maiming or death only account for 0.005065342923715936%.

So yes they're basing this on slightly more than 5 THOUSANDTHS of one percent.

The beagle who killed a child happened this way: some idiot parent gave the leash to the small child , unattended and the leash suffocated the child.
It is just plain silly even to go into these posts and recommendations what shows up here lately .

Beagles as any other breeds have to be trained, so after a while they won't bite, all puppies not only beagle puppies have sharp teeth and they chew on things. If you have a grown dog with those problems it is absolutely your fault and lack of training.
I saw very thoughtful posts about children and dogs, still I see pictures with babies in diapers, face next to the dog's muzzle and I just don't understand:(
I always had dogs and children so this is not against children but the careless parents.

I agree with kutyuska. All dogs need training and NO child should be left with a dog unsupervised. I trust my JoJo 100% but I would still never leave a child alone with her. You just never know what may happen.

Any dog can be classed as dangerous if in the wrong hands. Bull breeds tend to get a bad rap in Australia. Problem is the bull breed attract's bogans as owners who do not train or socialise their dog and tend to leave them in a yard all their lives.

I agree...children should NOT be left unsupervised with any dog...they should also be taught the right way to interact with their own family pets, the pets of family friends and given rules for interacting with dogs they don't know. I know I drill it into my kids heads over and over and over again that they MUST ask the owner of any dog no matter how docile it seems for permission to pet their dog before approaching or petting said unknown dog...

Another thing to take into account is the fact that they're ONLY looking at registered dogs in this instance...with the APB for example there's presently less than three thousand registered according to the statistics they provide...and of those some 43 percent have attacked an adult or child. It makes one wonder...are they talking about licensed dogs, or dogs registered specifically with the AKC...Are they ignoring any injuries or attacks perpetuated by mutts or unregistered dogs? Those sorts of things can skew statistics. Its one of the reasons that you ought to be careful when looking over anything with statistical data involved. What criteria are being used? Does the Criteria being used have the potential to seriously skew the end results to be presented?

The only thing dangerous about my two beagles are when they have gas!!
LOL @ Mollys Mom:)

I agree with kutyska, even the most well trained dogs are still dogs, and anything can happen. It's up to the parent to be responsible.

My Sebastian is a registered therapy dog, he is around children all the time, and has been desensitized to things like ear and tail pulling, and loud noises.

HOWEVER, I would never ever leave him alone with a child.

Hah hah, funny comments. I am left alone with Ginger and Trigger all the time, I'm about ten, and I never have any problems. However, when mom is left alone with them... that's a different story. Plenty of problems. LOL!

Kids run up to Ally all the time to pet her, and it's obvious that their parents haven't taught them anything about approaching dogs. They never ask, they just run up and sit down with her. Fortunately, she loves the attention and I don't think she'd do anything to get people to stop petting her. But I also wouldn't leave her alone with them.

Yes, the Beagle is one of the most dangerous dogs to own. Watch your step or you could trip over your Beagle and break something. Do not attempt to get in between your Beagle and a rabbit for you will lose. Beagles are really one of most popular dogs throughout the world, and as puppies very playful, and very sharp teeth and claws. Any dog if treated with kindness but with a stern voice will love you and will do anything to please you. I grew up with beagles since birth (63 years) and never had one ever attack me. Got to love my Beagle.

We as beagle owners are starting to see what it is like on the APBT side of life. Both pits and beagles are good dogs, but whose breed is being threatend by massive overbreeding.

There have been posts here in the past, denegrating pitsbulls as dangerous and evil dogs. Most saying this sillyness fail to recognize, that those biting pits only make up a very small percentage of the pit population. There are likely 10's of millions of Pitbulls in this country. Sure less then 1% of the population is acting up, but thats still a big number.

Think of the biting pitbulls like this. Way back when, GLock pistols started taking the nations police forces by storm. Suddenly there were report after report after report of cops accidentaly shooting them selvs. The percentage of people shooting themselvs was normal, problem is, there were/are ALOT of Glocks out there. So a small percentage of a BIG number is still a large number. People started questioning the safety of the glocks. Thankfuly that debate is mostly over, seeing as its the safety between the ears thats most important.

Pits and beagles suffer from the same problem right now, and that is massive over breeding. I cant open a newpaper classified or addpaper with out seeing tons of beagles or pits for sale. Lets take pits for example. Massive over breeding has likely cuased a small percentage of the population to have symptoms resembling "springer rage". Which explains why you hear this from the families after a aflicted pit bites. "he was a good dog, never any signs of aggression"

Instead of denegrating fellow dog owners becuase of the actions of a few, we need to stand with our fellow dog lovers. We need to demand sensable breeding restrictions, like requiring both dogs to be bredd, be certified both mentaly and physicaly health, for starters. We need to reduce the amount of breeders in the country. All it will take is some liberal city council to see the dogs on the list and Bam your hit with the ban stick. Look at some of the stupid breed ban lists, and what they cover. Not just the so called dangerous dogs either...
First they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

I would trust my pit around any person or animal. I dont trust my beagle around strange dogs or children due to her occasional biting when she gets frightened or stepped on.

So, basically, you trust the most dangerous dog (according to the list) over a lesser dangerous dog (that believe me shouldn't be on the list) is what you're trying to say?

I believe that is what they are saying. what is hard to believe about that? She says her APBT is more trustworthy then her beagle. Which is easily very true, as each dog is differnt. even if a stupid list (which is dumb)

Look at #7 a very rare breed, 1 death/on a adult. Only 284 reg dogs a year, yet this makes #7, these statistics are way off.
