The Most Aggressive Breed
A 2008 study by animal behavioral scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, published in the Journal of Applied Animal Behavior Science, identified the dachshund as the most aggressive breed toward strangers and the second-most aggressive breed — right behind the beagle — toward their owners.
