Your personality could put you at risk of being bitten by a dog.

A British study of nearly 700 people found those with a nervous disposition were more likely to be nipped.

In fact, people were the most anxious, had a 23-percent higher risk of getting bitten by a dog than those who were the least neurotic.

The study also found dog owners were three times more likely to be bitten than non-dog owners.

But more than half of bite victims said they had been bitten by a dog they did not know.
