Top 5 most dangerous dogs!
1. American Pit Bull Terrier
The American Pit Bull Terrier (a close cousin of American Staffordshire) has been on the doggy radar for the last decade as one of the most dangerous dogs in the world, with dog bite statistics ranking it as the second highest after the Rottweiler.
This breed has been used in dogfighting for a very long time. Strong and muscular with a powerful jaw bite power that can crack bones.
It’s understandable why this breed is still considered as one of the most aggressive and dangerous and why so many people continue to have a fear of Pit Bulls. There used to be a myth that American Pit Bulls were once nanny dogs and would look after the kids when the parents went out.
2. Dogo Argentino
Dogo Argentino is also known as the Argentinean Mastiff. These dogs seem to have a worse reputation than the Pit Bulls when it comes to lists of most dangerous or most aggressive dogs.
It’s not a widely known breed and certainly not a dog you hear of often. White and very large, these dogs have almost no markings on their bodies. Any marking will consider the dog flawed.
Independent and powerful, the Akita breed isn’t a dog for a first-time owner. This dog breed has a dominant personality which means they might walk all over someone new to owning a dog.
The Akita is aloof when it comes to strangers and doesn’t care very much for anyone outside their family. If not trained properly, Akita dogs can become aggressive and territorial. They have bitten people in the past because of these reasons, as this story describes.
4. Perro de Presa Canario
Perro de Presa Canario, a Mastiff dog breed derived from the Canary Islands, was bred to be a guard dog. This breed is not for the inexperienced owner, and for anyone looking to adopt this dog should do lots of research.
They are extremely suspicious of strangers and need very early training as well as socialization. But even with early training and social activities, these aggressive dogs remain on guard, which could lead to trouble.
5. Gull Dong
The Gull Dong originates from Pakistan, and it’s one of the rarest dog breeds. We don’t see many Gull Dong dogs in the west.
This beautiful dog can be wary and very suspicious of strangers, which might cause aggressive and dangerous behavior. They tend to have a grumpy nature and are not generally suited as family pets.
Given their size and strength and that they are considered one of the most dangerous dog breeds, it’s best to learn this breed well before adopting one.
