Avoid strange dogs, Bill Fulcher, owner of Ark Animal Hospital said some breeds of dog tend to be more protective and less friendly to strangers, but not necessarily the breeds most people think are dangerous. He said Chihuahuas may be the meanest dogs in his experience, while pit bulls are more likely to "lick you to death." Fulcher suggests stay away from anything that has a chow in it.
