Golden retrievers? I'd rather have a dog that eats a person. Not one that holds the goddamn flashlight. If I have a dog, it better be reliable. Loyal. Friendly. And useful. Companionship is a big thing to me, but damned if the bloody thing can't defend me while I load the gun.

My Husky loved every single person he met, and never attacked anyone. He only ever bit me as a puppy when we play-fought, when I essentially consented to his biting as it didn't even hurt. Once he was a few years old though he because just the most chill dog. He definitely acted like he smoked weed e'ery day. Putting him down was definitely one of the worst things I've had to go through in my life, I miss that fluff ball and definitely trusted him more than pretty much any human. So you can go **** yourself. Huskys are not any more prone to attack people than any other dog is, it's all about upbringing.

Related, it's him from fall 2013.

It's the instincts. Huskies have very powerful instincts that sometimes take full control of them.
The pack instincts are particularly bad, to have a large group of huskies without a well-trained designated leader in the presence of someone defenseless is a recipe for disaster.

It's the best for dog sledding, since the pack instinct comes in well in making the rest of the span easy to control as long as the leader is well-trained, but it's very much not best dog for families.

also i own a full-bred american pit-bull terrier, and like most large energetic breeds all he needs a lot of exercise, and they're very intelligent working dogs so i teach him lots of tricks and games to give him the mental stimuli that he would otherwise go mad without.

Genetics only play a role in the fact that pitbulls are bred to be strong and high-energy. aggression is a behavioural trait, and behaviour is learned.

it would be foolish of you to get a different breed of dog and believe it doesn't need the same level of training. it's quite a problem with people who buy labradors thinking they will be sweet, well-adjust dogs with little-to-no training.

Golden retrievers are more likely to be sweet that pitbulls with the exact same level of training.
Any breeder will tell you this. It's not a slam against the breed, its just how it is.
Just like a wolf raised from birth will have more wild animal instincts to attack that a pitbull will.
Genetics plays a role in mental attributes.

the kennel club and many reputable sources says that pitbulls are extremely human-friendly and make terrible guard dogs. this is a extention of their need for mental stimulion trait, and they're very pack-orientated. have you not noticed that your pittie wants to lick everybody he meets?
i really wouldn't trust most breeders, reputable ones are hard to come by especially with pitbulls. pitbulls have been domesticated for a very long time, only in recent 100 years have they been bred to be equip for fighting, giving them strong jaws and really high energy levels.
i'm studying to become a dog behavourist, and "golden retrievers are more likely to be sweet" is a dangerous way of thinking, we've had 3 lab maulings in the past 2 years because of that mindset.

I agree with your premis, but hold that since they were bred from bull-baiting dogs, whose entire existance revolved around violent bitting, that sume genetic traits remain, as such digs were selected for violence and the non-violent ones not allower to breed, thus passing on genetics of more violent dogs.

That said, I trust Steele (my pit) with my life, but do not allow children around him unsupervised.
I knew a woman who had a rottweiler that mauled her nephew after a wasp stung it and it attacked the kid in confusion and I'm wary of everything after that.
While my childhood pet golden retriever had stitches ripped out of his stomach by a child and he just cried and pushed the kid away with his nose.
I think that was genetics at work, all the training and care in the world do not affect natural reactions to pain, one reacted violently, one passively.

please, just do your own research on this because you seem rather misinformed about the "it's in their genetics" myth. pitbulls are known to maul because of the owners they attract, ghetto trash who use them to look tough, people lock them in their house all their lives to gaurd them, people who over-breed them to the point they're given away to anybody. they are statistically the most abused dog breed in the us, uk, and au.

dogs are individuals, if you go and see a litter the breeder will talk you through the puppies different personalities regardless of the fact that they're the same breed and from the same litter.

there is always a reason behind a dog biting, it's never a random act. weather they feel threatened, are in pain, or haven't been taught any better.
my pitbull had his paw sliced right open from a piece of scrap metal left of a near-by park, he was in agony. i couldn't afford a vet, and every online source said i should see one immediately. i still (i'm not proud of this) took my chances, as i'm trained in dog first aid. he had a gaping wound and every day i sprayed it with alcohol, which must've been so much pain for him but it was the only way i could keep infection out. he'd cried and winch in agony as i cleaned him up every day, but never did he go to bite me. it's finally healed up with months of painful but nessicary home-treatment. a different pitbull might act differently, because they're individuals.

I completely agree most attacks are because of the owners they attract. Owners who treat them poorly and even train them to attack.
However, once you agree that a wolf is more likely to attack an owner than a spaniel, even if both are raised from birth in the exact same way, you are allowing that genetics does, in fact, play a role.
I've done my research, I wouldn't have gotten a dog without doing my research, the type of dog the pitbull was bred from were bull-baiting dogs, chosen specifically because of their violent tendencies. and as a result, their descendants are more likely to attack. If that was not true, you could throw "The Origin Of Species" in the trash, because it, and its theories on selection of animals passing mental traits, as well as physical, would not be true.
Genetics plays a role, from species to speceis, and from breed to breed.

And no, pitbulls were bull baiting dogs because of their build. If they wanted a dog only for their tenancies then they'd get a jack russel (lovely dogs but their prey-drive is one of the highest)

Just like whippets were bred to have long legs and high-energy, not bred to "like running"

Blood hounds because they were bred for their amazing sense of smell, not because they like busting bad guys

St Benards because of their strong build and thick coat to take the weather, not because they all have dreams of climbing mountains

You see where i'm going this this.

Obviously they were not chosen for violence, how would one even detect that?
But, as Darwin points out, the people were subconsciously "selecting" by continuing the breeding of those successful in that particular field, and discontinuing the use of those who were not, thus, passing on inherent TRAITS, not just physical attributes.

You do not need to be a major in canine studies to see genetics plays a role in mindset, just a basic understanding of biology and inherited traits.
But I see you refuse to accept genetics has anything to do with anything other that physical traits.
(which must make instinct a difficult subject for you to grasp)
You think that a wolf is more likely to attack that a spaniel simply because of "needs not being met" rather than genetics and instincts.
You say "no credibly study" has found a link in genetics and violence but that is just not true, you see what you want to see.

Aggression is a behavior, behaviors can only be conditioned. There's no "aggression gene", no dog becomes aggressive for no reason. Nothing i said here is wrong.

Done debating here, if you wanna spread myths about the breed then go ahead. The breed is illegal in my country and family pets are being slaughtered because of these myths, and soon they'll be after your dog. So either educate yourself or make the world a ****** place for your pet.

I do agree that a wolves and spaniels are different, but wolves can be brilliant pets when owned by the right people. Wolves that are brought into domestic homes don't turn vicious because 'wolves are aggressive' it's because it's needs aren't being full-filled, and the owner doesn't recognize that it's different from a domesticate dog, causing them to become confused and using their only defense by becoming vicious. They have special needs and raising it from a pup isn't enough.
My point is, no creditable dog behavior expert on earth agrees that aggression comes from their genetics. Temperament comes from genetics yes, but aggression is not a temperament, it's a behavior. You could say for example, pitbulls have a prey drive which is bred into them, but their prey drive is relatively low compared to most breeds. There's absolutely no evidence supporting the myth, and the idea that behavior is hardwired into their brains and not conditioned sounds completely ridiculous to anybody with indepth knowledge on the subject.
