A shorter jaw means the teeth are closer to the muscle, which means it's easier to put more pressure down. Things like crocodiles do get an incredible amount of strength in their bite too. But for any dog the most force is is closest to the head.

Dogs like a bullmastiff bite and hold down big things. Dogs like terriers, that were bred to hunt rats, more instinctively shake their heads really fast, to kill the rat, which is why they tend to tear more while a bigger breed will pierce down deeper. At least that's how I see it.

Agreed, any dog can cause damage. I hate being bitten by little dogs. -_- Owners always think the little things are so darn cute. Even when they bite others.

Again, dogs can not lock their jaws. There is no locking mechanism in ANY breed.

Personally, I think people aggressive dogs should be put down. If they go after people without provocation, they are a real danger.

My dog was part poodle and part something else, cocker spaniel I think and he was very protective. We had to tell people not to touch himnor he'd bite. One day my parents were out in the yard when some people stopped by and their little girl bent down and touched Max before my mom could say anything. Max grabbed the girl by the arm but didn't bite down. I think he knew better. The girl didn't even have a mark onnher.

My dobe barks like crazy, but she's shy of people (still working on that, slow process..). Anyways, yesterday she started barking at a cat on tv, today she's barking at squirrels on our drive way. Squirrels. And cats on tv. -__-

It's loud. I always thought dogs didn't get tv, which is weird, when the cat was running on the screen she started barking.
