Dangerous Dachshunds? Dogs Trust responds to "aggressive breed" list

In response to the results of a University of Pennsylvania survey into the most aggressive dog breeds, Clarissa Baldwin CEO of Dogs Trust comments:
“While some people say that the voices of little dogs can be louder than those of large ones; a properly trained dog is unlikely to show aggression regardless of its breed. The manner in which a dog is reared and trained is the greatest factor that influences the likelihood of aggression. This is why owners have a responsibility to train and supervise their dogs properly. Aggression is not inherent in any breed and properly trained Dachshunds make fantastic family pets.”
We urge the public not to punish particular breeds for the actions of irresponsible owners.
