Turn on the news, especially at a time of the year like the spring and summer when temperatures are often suitable for dog owners to leave their pets outside. You’ll hear many stories about furry friends attacking people unexpectedly. You might realize that one sign of a rabid dog is that they indiscriminately walk up to humans and attack them. However, you might also think that there’s no way in which all the dogs mentioned in the stories you hear have rabies.

As you may suspect, dogs don’t have to be suffering from the behavior-altering and deadly neurological condition rabies to lead them to approach and potentially attack us humans. Dogs may become aggressive and lash out for various other reasons. They generally send warning signs before lashing out and attacking. Knowing the signs to look for may save you from suffering potentially life-threatening injuries.
