|Number six couldn't be further from the truth.
Whether dog lovers want to admit it or not (and I find that for some reason many of them choose not to), dogs can and often are born inherently aggressive. MANY dogs will and have attacked unprovoked regardless of training and upbringing. You can put a truly aggressive dog in the hands of a kind, caring, well knowledgeable person and if the dog is genetically aggressive, he will STILL come out of the situation aggressive. It is still, of course, not the dogs fault. It is a result of bad breeding more often than not as a reputable breeder would know not to pass on such genes. But regardless, there are inherently aggressive dogs. I've been attacked by unprovoked dogs and it's scarier than being attacked because you provoked the dog. Largely because you don't see it coming - they don't even give a warning, they just go for you. I didn't run past the dogs, I wasn't in their yard, I didn't make any sudden movements... in fact, I did everything by the text book and they still attacked. Dogs like that do exist. Whether this was the case for these dogs, we simply cannot say because we were not there.
And yeah, definitely a recipe for disaster. Female dogs in heat? Egads, I'm willing to bet that played a large part.
