This is an incomplete list, which may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by expanding it with reliably sourced entries.
There are a limited number of studies concerning the number of human deaths caused by dogs in the United States, and the number of attributed fatalities is difficult to validate or cross-compare with other study results because:
- studies dependent on surveying news reports may not find all the relevant news items
- different studies use different data collection methodologies and evaluation criteria
- breed identification requires a subjective evaluation based on observation of outward physical attributes against imprecise breed standards.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published in 2000 a study on dog bite-related fatalities (DBRF) that covered the years 1979-1998. The study found reports of 327 people killed by dogs over the 20-year period.
Fatalities reported from 1988 through 2012
This list supplements information compiled by existing studies regarding the people killed by dogs in the United States.
The following table summarizes the number of people reported by news sources as killed in 1988 and 2005–2012 (as of August, 2012). Please note that this list may not be comprehensive, as some deaths may not have been covered by the news or causes of death may have been misattributed. Furthermore, the reported breeds listed below may be inaccurate, as actual canine heritage often was not tested and was usually reported based on the visual report of a witness. Large, muscular, large-headed canines may commonly be mislabeled as "pit bulls" or "rottweilers," dramatically skewing the results below.

"Robert Howard, estimated to be 35-years old, was killed by a pit bull that was attacking a woman's dogs. Police said a woman came out of her home when she saw a pit bull attacking her two chained dogs. When she tried to stop the attack, the pit bull went after her. She grabbed a shovel and beat the dog. Robert Howard came out of his house to help. The pit bull, which was reportedly a loose or stray fighting dog, tore into Howard's calf. His friend, Isaiah Brown, said, "[The dog] just snatched and pulled all the arteries out. He was lying on the steps, and when I checked his vital signs he was already dead then." Police said the dog bit a main artery in Howard's leg"
