Briscoe v Shattock: QBD 12 Oct 1998

A dog could be held to be a dangerous dog under the Act, even if the only danger shown was to other dogs, and not to humans. Being dangerous reflected the dog’s disposition not his acts. No eiusdem generis interpretation with other provisions was appropriate in this case.
