Hat tip to retrieverman for posting this.
While one might argue that the newspeople only selected “family friendly” breeds, the concept would no doubt be repeated with pet mastiffs, Shepherds and the like. Simply put, in the vast majority of cases, no pet dog will bite someone unless it is an act of aggression that the owner should have seen coming.
It’s also interesting to note that a lot of lawyers do not support using a “Beware of Dog” sign, as it is basically admitting that you have an aggressive dog who WILL bite no matter the circumstances. This is an extreme liability, and better signage would be along the lines of “Dog in yard”.
