You see it in the media occasionally, dogs that "turn" on their owners. Does anyone know the reasons behind these attacks? I often hear people say it is the breed, that it is a matter of time before they turn on their owners. I know that is totally bogus, it doesn't make any sense. But I would like to know if anyone has any clue as to what makes some dogs attack/kill their owners. It has been bothering me and I can't find any solid information. It would be nice to know if it were something as simple as under-socializing, then it could be avoided much easier. If it were something like a mental issue (for lack of a better word, brain not wire right/gotta screw loose) then it seems it is unavoidable. Or if it was because they were abused, taught to be vicious, etc. Or likely, something I am not even thinking of. Thanks, I am just trying to gain some insight!
