8. Pit Bull Terrier
There’s a bit of confusion about where exactly the pit bull was bred and what it was bred for but most believe it was originally bred to “bait” bulls. And then in the 1800s, baiting became banned so the dogs were bred for a new sport: ratting and dog fighting.

7. Canary Mastiff
This is the Canary Mastiff, or the Perro de Presa Canario–a dog originally bred for working livestock. Their roots come from Spain and their name literally translates to “Canarian catch dog”. The breed was first introduced by Dr. Carl Semencic, an American anthropologist who wrote an article for Dog World Magazine and his books about the subject of rare breeds of dogs.

6. Japanese Tosa
The Tosa was a crossbreed of different European dog breeds including the Old English Bulldog, the Mastiff, St. Bernard, German Pointer, Great Dane and Bull Terrier. The idea was to create a larger, more powerful dog and between 1924 and 1933 the Tosa was created.

5. Brazilian Mastiff
The Brazilian Mastiff, or the Fila Brasileiro was originally created to be a hunting dog–doing well on ranches and plantations. It would guard estates and hunt big game animals like jaguars, but it also worked well around the farm and was able to “catch” individual cattle by grabbing hold of its neck for Brazilian ranchers.

4. Staffordshire Bull Terrier
This breed was created in the mid-19th century in Britain to be a small and fast dog fighter. If I saw one of these coming toward me on the street and off leash I would probably turn around, but owners swear these are the most sensitive and loving companions of the dog world.

3. Rhodesian Ridgeback
The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a majestic breed created in Africa to be both a versatile hunter and a guardian for the home. These dogs tend to be highly intelligent, stubborn with a significant amount of energy. You’ll be able to quickly identify this breed by the ridge which runs down their spine.

2. German Shepherd
I know many people who swear they will never own another type of dog besides a German Shepherd. It’s one of America’s most popular dog breeds but is it also a dangerous one? First, let’s talk about the good stuff. The German Shepherd is highly intelligent and his devotion and companionship are like none other.

1. Rottweiler
The Rottweiler is another versatile breed which was created to do multiple things. It could do everything from driving cattle to market and then later pulling carts for butchers. They were also some of the earliest police and military dogs.

  1. I love pit bulls!! So sweet and cuddly they are just big babies!! It’s the bad owners that give them a bad name!

    1. Black crown – the point that is constantly being over looked is how many pit bulls are not raised by dog fighters or aggressive owners. There are far too many stories of NORMAL homes having pit bulls for years and then without warning the dog flips and takes out someone, usually a child. 1994 ish the ABC news magazine did a story on pit bulls, this is when the hype was really beginning. The story centered on a man who got a pit puppy and they had the dog for 5 years when ABC was in their home filming. The show showed us the dog playing with the young daughter, sleeping in bed with her and just being such a great dog. The mom and dad said it was the best dog they ever had and that people need to understand it’s how you raise these dogs that can make them mean or nice. 1 week after this was filmed the young girl was in the living room playing with her dog just like she did when it was filmed and like she always did, the dog ripped her face off! The same man and woman who had a week prior defended the breed now want nothing to do with them. After burying their daughter they still don’t know what happened. He was watching as the attack happened and said nothing was different than any time before, the dog just snapped. I will include the link of the young lady who fought for pit bulls just like many on here are doing. She made all the same arguments all of you are making, word for excuses for these dogs. One night she took her dogs for a walk, they attacked her and when the police arrived the dogs had ripped her abdomen wide open and wear consuming her! Now that’s not normal dog behavior! She was an advocate and trained her dogs very well and by all accounts those dogs adored her and she adored them.. so why did they kill and eat her? Here is the link to the video – – Like I have asked before – WHY TAKE THE CHANCE? There are far too many stories of these dogs flipping for no reason for me to ever believe they can be trusted. I have owned and raised and trained German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Dobermans and various other breeds, Ive never owned nor will I ever own or even allow a pit bull on my property or near my grandkids

    2. Richard Black … have it euthanized and then get a dog you don’t have to be concerned will rip out some kids throat One day.

    3. Its not the owner it is generations of aggressive breeding that makes Pitbulls dangerous and everyone of these owners praising them know if their pitbull gets loose and finds another dog being walked by a child what will happen.

  2. I think breed banning is stupid. It isn’t the breed it is the owner. It is always the owners fault for their dogs behavior. They get high energy dogs that they can’t handle, or don’t have time to exercise them properly, and have not socialized them properly. I am completely against banning breeds. Take Chows for instance. I hate them, but I would never want them banned, and killed just because of their breed. I know it is the owners fault when they attack people, or turn on their owners. I have been around all kinds of dogs my entire life. I have been around pit bull, and bull terrier breed dogs my whole life. I have not once had a problem with them. They are just big goofy, lovey dovey, lick you to death, babies. I am glad I haven’t encountered one who was not raised properly. I just love them to pieces. They are the sweetest dogs.

    1. Tracy Yost I had a German Shepherd mixed with a wolf my dad got it smuggled into Jamaica and he was a great guard dog and loved us but fucked up whoever walks through that gate.

    2. Agreed. The dog is always a reflection of the owner. I’m a little bit on the side of restrictions for some breeds in countries with less experienced dog breeders. There are the responsible ones but the irresponsible ones unfortunately outnumber them in some places. Irresponsible breeding is why you hear of viscous dog attacks. A good breeder/owner will always produce a good dog and makes sure it gets a good home, a bad breeder does not care about what type of owner the dog will have, some of these dogs end up being abused and mistreated, the dog projects that treatment onto the person/s it attacks. Some give their dogs drugs or substances to alter their natural behavior too. Then the dog gets the bad reputation when it really should be the owner. As a breeder myself I have encountered a few wretched people along the way who really should never own a dog.

  3. I’ve owned three out of the eight dogs that were on this list. I think, a lot has to do with owners and how the dogs are raised

    1. Yea my mom has a black pitbull who loves meeting new people she runs and jumps on them licks them all over but my little pit bull witch is her puppy Is so shy she always hides behind me when new people show up 😄

  4. I’ve never have had any issues with my Pit Bull, Rottweiler or German Shepherd dogs again. I think a lot has to do how they’re raised


  5. the rotweiler should not be banned cause i had a rotweiler when i was a small kid and he was so cute and he was never agresive when i was near him but when there were stranger then he was agrsive.One time there were bulies at my school and my dog came with me to school cause it was bring ur pet to school day and the big kids were bullying me and my dog barked at them and they ran away

    1. Bigballer Caden the only problem with them is left unattended for long periods of time they will run in packs and attack unprovoked when in packs of wild dogs

    2. If they are raised right, just like most other breeds they can be amazing and sweet dogs. I’ve been attacked by a German Shepard and in no way was it the dogs fault, it was the people that were raising him as an attack dog and then leaving him with my neighbors who had no clue about the commands etc

    3. German Shepards are, a least in my opinion, Loyal, unlike most people now a days…….Trusting & Loyal. Why did you think police use this breed?

    1. Theodore Roper I agree with you lol my mom had three of them and they are mean little dogs and did not like anyone who would come over to visit us. I don’t have white friends and those dogs can be little Racist Hitler bastard’s lol. Much Respect from crazy white boy Robby in Idaho. Have a Merry Christmas to you and your family and a happy new year Sir Theodore Roper 🙏✌.

    2. +StickStraw2089 // Gaming Holly crap that’s alot of money for a dog. But I have heard that they are great dogs to have and are very loyal also. Much Respect from Robby in Idaho. And have a Merry Christmas to you and your family also a Happy New year.

    3. Robert Rutherford
      I mean any dog is equally loyal to their owners, I don’t think breed can effect that but Tibetan Mastiff’s are naturally very powerful and strong (they have a lowish bite force tho) therefore people in Nepal, China, Tibet ect use them as guard dogs to protect against not only people but other predators. Did I mention they look super cool?

      Edit : The reason they are so expensive is mainly looks tho and also size, not so much power even tho they’re super tough.

  6. I’ve owned a Rottweiler a pit bull and a German shepherd and they are all very sweet and I also own a Doberman who is a crybaby and a weinerdog who’s a drama queen

    1. My neighbor has a Wolf husky mix sweetest thing ever but that’s because there’s more husky in it than Wolf. It also kills small animals in the yard but very nice to humans.

    1. Me too, she was an amazing dog. She was so easy to train to voice commands. She was also very sociable around people once she saw they were not a threat.

    1. +Djxjxixsm Jxjskjzxn 👎👎👎👎👎👎🖕🖕🖕👎👎👎🖕👎🖕👎🖕👎🖕👎🖕👎🖕👎👎🖕👎🖕👎🖕👎🖕👎🖕👎🖕🖕👎🖕

  7. No I dont think that any dog would be band I think people should go through a evaluation. I work with criminally insane and I think my some of my colleagues….. all my family ended up with rescues I had pits and all types of the shepherds family and it’s how u work with them.

    1. +mr.clickbait Your name suggests that it should be easy for you to answer your own question – but maybe you see a different thumbnail in your part of the world.
