Study identifies dog breeds, physical traits that pose highest risk of biting children

Research from the Ohio State University College of Medicine and the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has investigated dog breeds and bite incidents with children. The researchers looked at 15 years' worth of dog-related facial trauma cases and considered wound size, tissue tearing, bone fractures, and other severe injuries. The study was published in the International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology.
