10. Dalmatian

dalmatian Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

The FCI recognized as its country of origin the region of Dalmatia in the Republic of Croatia, citing Bewick’s 1792 work.
Previously, Yugoslavia was recognized by the F.C.I. as the country of origin of the Dalmatian; the breed had been developed and cultivated chiefly in England. When the dog with the distinctive markings was first shown in England in 1862 it was said to have been used by the frontier guards of Dalmatia as a guard dog. But nothing is definitely known about its origin. The breed has become widely distributed over the continent of Europe since 1920. Its unusual markings were often mentioned by the old writers on cynology

9. Boxer

boxer Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

Developed in Germany, the Boxer is a breed of stocky, medium-sized, short-haired dog. The coat is smooth and fawn or brindled, with or without white markings. Boxers are brachycephalic (they have broad, short skulls), and have a square muzzle, mandibular prognathism (an underbite), very strong jaws and a powerful bite ideal for hanging on to large prey. The Boxer was bred from the English Bulldog and the now extinct Bullenbeisser and is part of the Molosser group.Boxers were first exhibited in a dog show for St. Bernards at Munich in 1895, the first Boxer club being founded the next year. Based on 2008 American Kennel Club statistics, Boxers are the sixth most popular breed of dog in the United States for the second year in a row—moving up in 2007 from the seventh spot, which they’d held since 2002—with 33,548 new dog registrations during the year

8. Presa Canario

presa canario Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

First introduced to the world outside of Spain’s Canary Islands by the American Anthropologist, Dr. Carl Semencic in an article for Dogworld Magazine and in his books on the subject of rare breeds of dogs, the Presa Canario, or “Canary Dog” is a large sized dog with a thick and muscular body. The head is broad, massive, square, and powerful. Proper head and good expression are part of the breed standard, and are manifest in the best breed specimens. The ears are normally cropped both to create a more formidable expression, and to prevent damage while working with cattle

7. Chow Chow

 Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

The Chow is a sturdily built dog that is square in profile with broad skull and small, triangular,  ears that are rounded at the tip. The breed has a very dense double coat that is either smooth or rough. The fur is particularly thick around the neck, giving the distinctive ruff or mane appearance. The coat may be one of five colors including red, black, blue, cinnamon/fawn, and cream.Their eyes should be deep set and almond in shape. Chows are distinguished by their unusual blue-black/purple tongue and very straight hind legs, resulting in a rather stilted gait. The bluish color extends to the Chow’s lips, which is the only dog breed with this distinctive bluish appearance in its lips and  cavity (other dogs have black or a piebald pattern skin in their mouths). One other distinctive feature is their curly tail. It has thick hair and lays curled on its back. Their nose should be black (except the blue which can have a solid blue or slate colored nose). Any other tone is disqualification for showing in the United States under AKC breed standard. However, FCI countries do allow for a self-colored nose in the cream

6. Doberman Pinschers

Doberman Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

The Doberman Pinscher (alternatively spelled Dobermann in many countries) or Doberman is a breed of domestic dog. Dobermann Pinschers are among the most common of pet breeds, and the breed is well known as an intelligent, alert, and loyal companion dog. Although once commonly used as guard dogs or police dogs, this is less common today. In many countries, Dobermann Pinschers are one of the most recognizable breeds, in part because of their actual roles in society, and in part because of media attention.  Careful breeding has improved the disposition of this breed, and the modern Dobermann Pinscher is an energetic and lively breed suitable for companionship and family life.

5. Alaskan Malamutes

While a few Malamutes are still in use as sled dogs for personal travel, hauling freight, or helping move heavy objects, some are used for the recreational pursuit of sledding also known as mushing, also skijoring, bikejoring, and canicross. However, most Malamutes today are kept as family pets or show dogs or performance dogs in Weight pulling or Dog agility or packing. The Malamute is generally slower in long-distance dogsled racing against smaller and faster breeds and their working usefulness is limited to freighting or traveling over long distances at a far slower rate than that required for racing. They can also help move heavy objects over shorter distances

4. Huskies

siberian husky Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

The Siberian Husky has been described as a behavioral representative of the domestic dog’s forebearer, the wolf, exhibiting a wide range of its ancestors’ behavior. They are known to howl rather than bark. Hyperactivity displaying as an overactive hunting drive, a characteristic of kenneled dogs, is often noticeable in dogs released from their captive environment for exercise – a behavior welcome in hunting dogs but not in the family pet. The frequency of kenneled Siberian Huskies, especially for racing purposes, is rather high, as attributed through the history of the breed in North America. They are affectionate with people, but independent. A fifteen-minute daily obedience training class will serve well for Siberian Huskies. Siberian Huskies are a very stubborn and dominant breed of dog. Siberians need consistent training and do well with a “Nothing In Life Is Free” training program.

3. German Shepherds

German Shepherd Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

German Shepherds are highly active dogs, and described in breed standards as self-assured. The breed is marked by a willingness to learn and an eagerness to have a purpose. Shepherds have a loyal nature and bond well with people they know. However, they can become over-protective of their family and territory, especially if not socialized correctly. An aloof personality makes them approachable, but not inclined to become immediate friends with strangers. German Shepherds are highly intelligent and obedient and some people think they require a “firm hand”, but more recent research into training methods has shown they respond as well, if not better, to reward based training methods

2. Rottweilers

rottweiler Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

According to the FCI Standard, the Rottweiler is good-natured, placid in basic disposition, fond of children, very devoted, obedient, biddable and eager to work. Their appearance is natural and rustic, their behaviour self-assured, steady and fearless. They react to their surroundings with great alertness. The American Kennel Club says it is basically a calm, confident and courageous dog with a self-assured aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships. A Rottweiler is self-confident and responds quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to influences in its environment. It has an inherent desire to protect home and family, and is an intelligent dog of extreme hardness and adaptability with a strong willingness to work, making them especially suited as a companion, guardian and general all-purpose dog.

1. Pit Bulls

pitbull2 Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

Pit bull is a term commonly used to describe several breeds of dog in the Molosser family. Many breed-specific laws use the term “pit bull” to refer to the modern American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and dogs with significant mixes of these breeds; however, a few jurisdictions also classify the modern American Bulldog and Bull Terrier as a “pit bull-type dog”. The term can also refer to dogs that were known as “bull terriers” prior to the development of the modern Bull Terrier in the early 20th century.

    My friend had a rottweiller as a kid, that dog was so protective if i grabbed my friends shirt and started shaking/pushing him the dog would start growling and get ready to attack.. Also nearly took my hand off when i tried taking my cup off him( he decided he’d have my nesquick )

  2. Cat says:

    Should have included Retrievers in this list… There is a high frequency of attacks becaus people assume they are wonderful, tolerant and friendly. They are but every dog has its limits!

    As with any dog, you should be cautious and respectful. Never leave a kid alone with a dog ever!

    I have a husky, and they are hardly dangerous. They are known for NOT being a guard dog. They would lick someone to death first.

    I think this list is a little misguided. a dog is a product of its environment. Every breed has its quirks that you need to be aware of but that doesn’t make them dangerous.

    i like the alaskan malamutes.the color is so nice and the fur is thick

  4. Melissa says:

    I have a stafferd shire pit bull terrior. He is the most sweetest dog ever. The first day we got him me and my sister were wrestling in the yard and our dog jumped on top of both of us because he didn’t know which one to protect!! He may be a sweet little baby, but put a robber infront of his face, it’s dinner time!!

  5. JC says:

    I am tired of the PitBull being listed as dangerous. I have owned pitbulls for 30 years and never did one of my dog so much as growl let alone bite some one. It is all on the owner and how the raise their animal. I know serveral chuaua’s and other small breeds I will not go near because they bite. If you treat your pet like part of the family and socolize them with people and other animals from puppy on you will not have that issue. The few that have bitten is from bad/ignorant owners not knowing how to train and raise the breed!

  6. Jennifer says:

    It really upsets me when people lable “dangerous breeds” I don’t believe in that. It has everything to do with how the owner treats, trains, and socolizes the dog. I have owned and been around pibulls and Rottweillers all my life and never were they aggressive towards people, but me and my family treat them as our children and as a major part of the family. Most of the time when these dogs attact is either from neglect or abuse. Bad owners make bad dogs. Just like bad parents make bad kids!!

  7. Elston Gunn says:

    There’s something wrong with the boxer pictured. It looks like its ears have been mutilated to make them stay erect. Keep your scissors off these beautiful dogs, please, otherwise I’ll take my scissors to your ears!

  8. Jo says:

    I think it is important to note that most often, dogs develop bad behaviors because of their owners or their circumstances. Just like people, dogs are created by their environment.

    Careless breeding also can bring out negative characteristics in certain breeds, especially when they are being bred for looks rather than with the health of the dogs in mind.

    Also I think that many dogs, such as pit bulls, get bad reputations because of dog fighting rings. Many people don’t realize that most pit bulls are wonderful dogs; they are known to be extremely loyal and eager to please. They tend to love children and to be very gentle with them. Because they are so strong though, people have taken that eager-to-please quality and applied it to fighting; teaching them that they need to fight in order to make their owner happy with them. A lot of dogs rescued from dog fighting rings have no aggression towards people; it is only against other dogs that they display a desire to fight.

    When I was little, my parents had two Huskies. I remember I’d climb on top of them and ride the around like “horses”. They never once growled at me or tried to bite. They always came across as happy dogs around family and friends. My mom called them “lick dogs” because that’s all they ever did around people. Well, one time the meter guy decided to hop our fence to check our meter instead of ringing the doorbell (we had “beware of dog” signs on both gates to our yard). All I remember seeing was a quick flash of some guy running across our backyard with our Husky chasing after him. He later came to the door, claiming our dog tried to attack him. Pretty sure what happened was she saw some stranger in the yard and wanted to check him out, then he saw her and took off running, so she of course chased after him. I wouldn’t be surprised if people like him are the reason Huskies are being labeled as a dangerous breed.

    This is a long post, but worth it to show how a little TLC goes a long way!

    I agree with the above comments. How a dog behaves is all in the raising. I knew a Presa Canario and she was sweet as pie (had some anxiety issues when left alone (tore apart a door) but was otherwise wonderful). Even the most typically kind and gentle dogs can become vicious if inappropriately raised. My dog, Mary, is mostly black lab, a breed known for its gentleness. She’s also part basset hound and a little bit chow (the only part of her that’s chow is the tongue and fur that is brown if seen in the right light). She does have some of the protective instincts of a chow and the tracking of a basset, which accounts for some of her behavioral problems. But the majority of her terror of strangers (esp. men and/or people wearing white shoes) results from the fact that she was abused by someone who had her before us (at one point, when we took her in for limping, the vet said it looked like her paw had been hit by a hammer…). Also, we were her 5th or 6th owners when she was a mere 6 months old. Her temperament has improved a good deal because we gave her plenty of love and attention (she also had a “sister” to play with)…to the point where we mere humans must now make room for her on the bed and couch or risk getting the evil eye! (well, not so much bed anymore as she has a hard time climbing stairs now..she’s almost 12).
    Another story: my sister’s friend’s dog was a real pain to handle. No one could handle him…except me (and probably his new owners). His owners did not properly discipline him nor care for him (not abuse by any stretch, just poor raising). I however, while dog-sitting, laid down the law (firmly, but gently) and gave him lots of love. In the short time I had with him, he learned to willingly obey my command (some of the time, didn’t have enough time to make it stick before he was given away).

    So, my long stories do have a point: it’s all in how you raise them.

    And to those offended by this post: I agree as there is no part about how these dogs can be good. However, realize that these dogs were and still are brought up to be fighting, attack, etc. dogs. They’re very strongly built and are tough. Good for these kinds of jobs. Due to breeding, their temperament may tend toward the aggressive without proper care, which is something many people have difficulty with. But this doesn’t mean they can’t be wonderful dogs. The most stereotypically aggressive dog can be taught to be the most gentle and the most stereotypically gentle dog can be taught to be the most aggressive. It’s all in the raising.

    P.S. that applies to humans too!

  12. Hernando says:

    The breed BOXER are not dangerous, they are recommended for kids and a entire family, they are very friendly.

    DOGS are exactly how his owner are and the way to be educated. The small breeds are potencially dangerous too.

    I´m from Colombia, greetings to all

    You should check your facts, these are not even the top ten. If your gonna make up shit at least let your readers know you are guessing. Learn how to spell you ignorant mother-fucker.

  14. bob says:

  15. regine@10 says:

    we have an boxer too but she is so so sweet too!!
    all of are dogs are kind not like a wild dog!!!!!

  16. Katie says:

    Anyone with half a brain knows better than to label ANY breed as “dangerous.” Not because dangerous dogs don’t exist… but because any dog, regardless of breed, can be dangerous in the right circumstances. I’ve spent my entire life with dogs, and I’ve been bitten once — by a Pomeranian.

    FWIW — all political correctness aside — The belief that dogs are entirely the product of how they’re raised is naive. Yes, dogs are among the most trainable and amendable of animals. That’s why they are the preferred pet the world over. But that doesn’t mean that EVERY dog, given the right home, socialization, and training will be equally good natured and dependable in every situation. There are breeds who are prone to traits such as guarding behaviors, extreme dominance, territoriality, hair trigger reactiveness and aggression. When a dog from a litter whose background pedigree is loaded with those traits for generations is placed in the wrong home, disaster is almost a sure bet. There will always be an element of *unpredictability* in the dog’s temperment, no matter how responsibly he’s raised.

    Keep in mind — TEMPERMENT is the behavioral foundation and inclinations the dog is BORN with. Like the size of his ears and the shape of his tail, he inherits it from his parents. PERSONALITY is the result of that temperment in response to the dog’s environment. Socalization and training can teach the dog to respond to certain cues and commands in a positive way, and help to develop a pleasing personality. But you can NOT re-train temperment. A dog born with a naturally aggressive temperment will always present some risk to people and other dogs.

    Be wise. Be responsible.
