Default Poodles make the list of 39 top dangerous breeds

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

I saw this and thought "POODLES are on the list???"

If you drill into the stats by breed, however, it's a bit better scenario:

29,939 registered dogs (in the US)
1 child victim
1 adult victim
2 maimings
0 deaths

Thats .003% of poodles registered. Not a bad statistic, really. And a GREAT photo!

What I find surprising is that pom's, daxies and Chihuahua's have caused deaths. Surprising but sad, who would have thought?

Given poodles come further down the list than Labradors, Chihuahuas and spaniels, I don't think we have a lot to worry about!

the small dogs are usually deaths to very young infants and the deaths occur after the attack.

Woah - that's scary stats on the pitbulls. Yikes.

I LOVE the picture of the poodle. Wish I had that when I ordered my custom "Beware - Attack Poodle" sign for my house (new law here says every house with a dog needs a warning sign, but in Portuguese, so I had one custom made... would have loved to put that picture on it!)

I downloaded a few Cesar Milan episodes because a friend told me a recent one focused on a standard poodle named Lilly and another episode also had a standard poodle. In watching these, I had to laugh as they each included several dogs on a single episode. The other dogs, even the little tiny dogs on the show, had serious aggression problems and were biting their owners and/or everyone else and/or attacking other dogs. The 2 standard poodles? One (Lilly) was knocking over the tiny kids in her exuberant play. The other spun in circles because he didn't get to chase cars. That was it. For the episode on Lilly, Cesar even says at one point that training is important because "she could hurt someone one day. Not with her mouth. But knocking someone over, you know."

I think it's the only episode of any dog training I've ever seen that didn't instead warn something like "Any dog can bite and/or kill at any time" or some such thing. Not that poodles can't - it was just funny to me to hear that the worst-case scenario for this standard poodle was that it might knock someone over in her over-joyful play.

(And if that standard poodle had been black, I would have been totally freaking out. Because MY Lili is bound for that show one day if I can't get her to also stop jumping on everyone and playing too rough with the kiddies!)

Wow, they sure managed to find a vicious-looking poodle picture. Pull that one out next time some yahoo calls your dog "frou frou." That dog looks darn near satanic. Guess they couldn't find any evil-looking pugs, though - check pic #39.

Aww..he has a look like, "Cmon, you hurt my feelings to think I could do something mean."

The boxer looks demented. All the beautiful boxers and thats the pic they used?
