    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Sometimes even good dogs bite. And when they do, you can be held liable.

    The Insurance Institute says that up to one-third of homeowner liability claims are for dog attacks.

    By the numbers: 4.7 million people bitten each year, 800,000 seek medical attention, $4.8 million paid out last year by insurance companies, $50 rise in the last eight years.

    But one company is no longer providing coverage for particular breeds. 

    Dr. Lars Powell with the UALR School of Business is here to explain.
