The purpose of this graphic is not to scare readers but to reinforce that dog bites are an ongoing problem, one that every person who owns or is around dogs should be aware of. Most dog bites are preventable! Socialize your dog and learn to recognize signs and behaviors that may be cause for alarm. Never leave children alone with a dog, even if the dog has no history of aggression.
