Dog bites can leave devastating injuries both physically and emotionally for victims, which is why the Law Offices of Shane Smith would like to help as many people as possible from becoming victims of dog bites. Our list of safety tips may be able to help you or your family from suffering a needles dog attack.

Identifying Dangerous Breeds of Dogs

Become familiar with the dogs that are considered more aggressive. These breeds can include:

  • Akitas
  • Bullmastiffs
  • Doberman Pinschers
  • Pit Bulls
  • Rottweilers
  • Siberian Huskies

While some of these dogs are well-behaved, remember that good behavior starts with dog owners. If a dog owner is teaching these types of dogs to be aggressive, or if they are abusing their dogs, then the dogs may be more prone to bite. Because you may be unaware of their environment, it is best to use caution around these types of dogs.

Signs of an Aggressive Dog

By understanding a dog’s body language, you may be able to determine when a dog is aggressive and ready to bite. Watch for these signs:

  • The hair on the back of the dog;s neck and spine is standing up.
  • The dog’s ears may be standing up straight or pinned against its head.
  • The dog may look tense.
  • It is growling. 
  • The dog’s nose and/or lips may be pulled back.
  • Its teeth are showing.

If a dog bit you, you deserve compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, scars, lost wages, and more. Call Peachtree premises liability lawyer Shane Smith for a free legal evaluation today at (770) 487-8999.
