Add Dachshunds to the vicious breeds list...

ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) - Authorities are investigating whether criminal charges should be filed after an Oklahoma woman was mauled to death by seven small dogs, most of them possibly a dachshund-terrier mix.

Assault is a behavior, not a device.

I have seen some mean dachshunds!!! I guess if you have enough of them ganging up on you, it would be difficult to deal with the group,, especially an older person. I would have "drop-kicked" a few, but I can fully understand how this could happen.

Several years ago, my sister was fighting Breed Sppecific Legislation (she had pit bulls) in her town and presented several facts about dog bites and one of them was that Dachshunds were ranked well above pits in reported bites. Number one that year, I think.

My Great Uncle had Pomeranian dogs that was as about as fierce as the miniature Schnauzer that I have now. If a strange vehicle pulls up Toby with all of his 10 lbs. will pull patio furniture around to try and get to whoever is in that vehicle. If he were to bite, he probably would bite so rapidly that you would sustain numerous wounds. That being said he hasn't bitten anyone. He does sing to me when I come home from work each day. It's not surprising that a pack of any size dogs can do severe harm to a person. In Dallas, there was a lady mauled to death by a pack of dogs a year or so ago.

I can attest to their attitude. I had one and he was a great little dog that thought he was 100 pounds. Sweet little dog, but if you tried to physically correct him he would go into psycho mode. You could not hit him had enough to make him back down. If that 7 pound dog was 100 I would have had to shoot it. Little guy lived 17 1/2 years and we sure miss him.

Dog chat aside, what a horrible way to die. It must have been shocking.

In my experience, you are far more likely to be bitten by a shih tzu, pomeranian, chihuahua etc than a German Sheherd or Rottweiler etc

The damage can be more severe with the latter but the likelihood is far more likely with the former.

Small dogs are fear biters and often the aggressors with largers dogs as well

But all dogs are better than cats
