First of all, there is no such thing as a “bad breed.” Some nasty human injuries have been attributed to certain breeds, but that does not mean every member of a “bad breed” is, in fact, “bad.” Dogs, much like humans, are individuals with their own characters and personalities.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop people from labeling them and creating bad breed lists.
Whether or not you agree with bad breed listings, many organizations swear by them. Home insurance companies that offer services like home insurance calculator and quotes often are very strict about these bad breeds (and what owning one could do to your rates).
You should familiarize yourself with the bad breeds to avoid any complications when it comes to signing off on a house or renting a property.
They go as follows:
1. Pit Bulls
2. Doberman Pinschers
4. Alaskan Malamutes
5. German Shepherds
6. Great Danes
7. Siberian Huskies
9. Chow Chows
Despite the fact that these breeds are considered dangerous, individual members of each breed are often times not. That point cannot be stressed enough.
And if you just have to have one of these dogs or you already own one and are having problems closing the deal on something, you might need to re-evaluate your options.
