10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds


Dogs are man’s best friend, right? So, why does this list exist (along with its extended top 25 version)? Well, in short, people are evil, and they don’t give a crap about A) other people and B) their own dogs. Even your Chihuahua can be dangerous! Then again there are quite a few factors that define how “dangerous” a dog is, but the dog-people constantly disagree on those conditions. Of course, bigger doggos can easily eat someone’s face off, but size isn’t everything. Whatever this list tells you, it’s important to understand that dogs will almost always strive to please and protect their masters, so blame the people with the leash at all times.


Either way, these 10 dog breeds could probably kill you in a matter of minutes, if you decide to test them. So, please, don’t. Just pet them and they’ll love you forever, but ask their owner first before you pet!



Bull Terrier
With huge egg-shaped heads, and the #1 ranking in pound-for-pound lean muscle tissue, bull terriers can be really terrifying, although they’re not particularly aggressive. That is unless you’re a squirrel or a cat. If you are, just stay away from these fellas.



Great Dane
This doggerino is best known for its massive size, and even holds the record for the world’s tallest dog at 44 inches. So, you know you shouldn’t tease this big boy. By the way, this breed was originally designed to hunt wild boar and deer in Germany.

Like most of the dog breeds, the boxer is not typically aggressive by nature, but if provoked, they can definitely kick your butt. Again, just show them some affection, and you’ve got yourself a friend for life!



Doberman Pinschers
These guys don’t need an introduction. These good boys are quite famous for their alertness, loyalty and intelligence, and are considered to be the best guard dogs out there. You’ve seen them in countless movies and TV shows, so you already know not to mess with them.

But… But… Huskies are so happy and fluffy! How can they be dangerous? Well, turns out their predatory instincts tend to kick in when there’s a “small prey” around. Could be a cat, or a gopher, or even a small child! Not to mention they will absolutely wreck your furniture when they are bored.



Alaskan Malamutes
Being a close relative of the aforementioned Husky, this EVEN BIGGER dog can also destroy your place if you leave them bored. This buddy requires a lot of exercise, and if you’re a lazy person, you probably, nay, DEFINITELY should not get this dog. Stick to cats.

Believe it or not, Rottweilers date way back to the Roman Empire, and all this time they’ve been extremely powerful breed with strong guarding instincts. Like with any other dog, irresponsible ownership, abuse, and neglect are the most wide-spread reasons for aggression. But even if the owner is super sweet, I’d rather bite on a cactus than come near a Rottweiler.

German Shepherd
As someone who’s had at least 2 German shepherds, all I can tell you is: don’t let the neighborhood kids tease the dog through the fence. Spank these inexperienced, uncaring rug rats if you have to, but don’t let them tease the dog. Anyway, Shepards are extremely intelligent, confident, alert, vigilant, and fearless. They’re even used by the police in the K-9 units.



Well… it’s no wonder this breed is slowly being banned in the US.

Caucasian Ovcharka
My childhood friend used to have one of these. It wasn’t that bad to be honest, but whenever it barked or woofed I remember crapping my pants a little bit. The Caucasian Shepherd, was bred to protect livestock, and unless properly socialized and trained, it may exhibit ferocious tendencies, since it does not accept strangers easily. Rule of thumb, as with any other dog on this list, if you’re scared of it – just stay away.
