    I would expect that if a dog was hurt badly, or was very sick, or had rabies, it would probably not want to be touched , and would want to be left alone, even though you just want to help or comfort the dog.

    Depends on the breed , some dogs are bread to fight, like it or not, Some Pit bulls etc. if it's bread into them their unpredicable .

    in most cases from personal experience - the owner tried to make the dog into a fighting dog or guard dog and didn't know what they were doing - or did it wrong.  Most times it's the owner's treatment of the dog or the previous owner (many shelter dogs were abused)

    i would think if the dog has rabies, that would make him/her turn on anyone, including owner

    In most cases it is either past or current mistreatment. Sometimes the dog simply thinks it's the boss and when its owner "disobeys" they try to set them straight, just like they would in a pack, though this generally only happens with alpha dogs and inexperienced owners. Other than that, dogs are predators and there are times that a particular movement, reaction, etc. might trigger their predatorial instinct, which is why children always need to be supervised with any dog, no matter how sweet and well-mannered they are.

    there was a story in the news paper about a mans dogs turning on him one day. he didnt servive because he pretty much had a pack of dogs. in the paper it said he raised them from puppies. in this case I think by him having so many dogs they werent treated as a regular house pet would be treated. I still thought it was weird that all of them attacked him like that as if he was a stranger.

    Something has happened perhaps that you are unaware of. If it is your dog then you need to elaborate more on the breed etc. If it someone ele's dog then maybe you are not getting the rntire story. Dogs do not turn out of nowhere...
