It said that a dog is man’s best friend. So like any best friend it can give life for its owner and also take life. If you ask me…then I am sufficiently scared of even the local street dogs, let alone these ‘humangasaurus’ dogs with razor sharp teeth. I happen to have the worst experience of being chased by a group of dogs, just because I tapped one of the puppies. Go figure!!! So I would just advice to stay away from all the dogs until and unless they are with their trainers or in other case they are your pets.
But since I am writing an article of Top 10 Most Dangerous Dogs In The World, so if somehow you happen to come across these dogs then better keep a safe distance. Obviously these dogs are expensive ones and you won’t find them just like that but for people like us (who are afraid of alien invasion) we need to have enough know how of escaping attack by these dogs.
These gorgeous spotted creatures attract everyone with their royal looks. They became extremely popular after the movie in 1996. Many people try keep to them in their houses to please their kids but these dogs are not made to deal with children. They are notorious for their destructive nature and are easily provoked.
9. Presa Canario
This dog breed was made with a purpose of guarding and fighting. And they do it really really well. They are known for their brave fearless natures, strong bodies and attacking abilities. They can actually make your nightmares come true. So if you want to die safely on a bed rather than in woods bitten and bleeding than do not go near them or provoke them in any way.
8. Chow Chow
These furry beasts resemble lions, not that I am disrespecting them in any way by showing similarity with a member of cat family; I am merely trying to describe their facial expressions. They are fluffy and cuddly but never be fooled by this fur ball. Their vision is not very good and that is why they get easily annoyed. However they are very loyal to their owners.
7. Doberman Pinschers
Doberman Pinschers are very intelligent, powerful and aggressive dogs. Their main purpose is to guard their owner. They become extremely loyal to their masters if trained properly. Usually they are calm, but if they feel any threat to their owner, they can turn into most vicious creatures. With swift bodies, they can tear you apart in just minutes.
6. Alaskan Malamutes
Alaskan Malamutes are highly useful dogs and are capable of performing many chores, especially in the areas where normal transport is difficult. They are usually loyal to their owners and work voluntarily. But if somehow they get annoyed, aggressive or hyper, then it becomes nearly impossible to calm them down. They are usually found in packs, which makes them even more lethal in hyper mode.
5. Wolf – Dog Hybrid
As the name suggests, this breed is the broken link between wolves and dogs. Having the word ‘wolf’ in their name sure indicated that they are not meant to be pets. Though the breeders as well the trainers longed to make them domestic but the cunning nature of one of the most dangerous predators in the wild, the wolves, made it impossible. Many attacks have been reported including death of 14 victims. The rabies vaccine also does not work with these dogs.
Huskies are one of the most intelligent canines and are very close in appearance and duties to their Alaskan cousins – the Malamutes. They are usually very obedient and loyal dogs but everything can go wrong if they are not trained properly or if they have behavioral issues. If provoked or disturbed, these dogs can cause havoc. They are usually used for sleighs on snow and move in packs. These dogs are meant for people who are pro with dogs and the beginners out there should be aware of them.
3. German shepherd
This breed of dogs is packed with an unbelievable amount of energy and a proper and healthy disposal of this energy is mandatory. They prefer long walks and stressful games. If you can’t make all this happen then don’t bring a German shepherd in because these dogs, when hyper can turn into a nuclear bomb. They are usually used as police dogs and guards. They are intelligent and aggressive. They need proper training from the beginning otherwise they develop biting habits and become unfit for domestic purposes.
Well if you are not scared enough from the huge built powerful dogs, then this one is sure to send shivers down your spine. Rottweiler is aggressive dog and has sharp guarding skills. In addition they have strong territorial boundaries and they will do anything to defend their part of land. They are responsible for 39 record deaths of humans. And they also have the record of highest number of bites. These ferocious dogs are a no joke. Due to their aggressive and untamed nature they are banned from some countries like Poland, Ireland and Romania. Others like USA have to deal with almost one bite every 87 days. So if you plan about keeping this thing in your house, sure go ahead but then don’t expect any guests or visitors or even your mails!!!
1. Pit Bulls
Having no resemblance to Pitbull (the singer) these dogs do not surprise us by landing on number one. These devils are responsible for 66 deaths, which is a lot more than any other breed. And if the statistics are still not clear then F.Y.I. these dogs are responsible for one third of the dog bites in USA. Pit Bulls by nature are aggressive dogs with a lot of energy. The major problem with them is that you can’t predict the attack because most of their attacks are unprovoked. So here the deal changes, it is not about being nice to the dog anymore, it’s about keeping a safe distance from him. Many countries have banned this breed. Despite being intelligent, these furious dogs are not used for protection or guarding purposes. Instead they are usually owned by people involved in illegal dog fights. So owning this most dangerous dog will make people suspicious about you and will decrease your chances of long life.

Where on earth do you get your information? While I agree with your assessment (generally) of intelligence, energy, and a need for exercise, companionship, and training – true of any breed of dog – this post seems to merely perpetuate a lot of stereotypes which are harmful to certain breeds, particularly pit bulls, who tend to attack because they’ve been mistreated or poorly trained. Misunderstanding and mishandling of any creature can lead them to behave like – well, an animal. With strong muscles, sharp teeth, and self-protective instincts.
Wow, nice and completely unbiased picture of that pit bull you put at number one on your list. You’re going to get a lot of flack and you totally deserve it. It’s intolerant and uneducated people like you that perpetuate dog stereotypes. It’s your brand of careless sloppiness that the blogging world needs less of. Ignorance is a dangerous thing and you’ve shown yourself to be a very dangerous person indeed.
Kindly first increase your knowledge about dog breeds after that comment here again thanks.
FUCKING WANKER PUSSYCAT
Hey good blog but inadequate info about all behaviors….ppl are not concerned with truths now a days your blog creates a bad impression on dogs….
Simply saying the dogs(i mean all the dogs on the earth)unless wild do not attack unless provoked….so suggest ppl not to provoke dogs…..don’t make them fear of dogs….dogs are really wonderful creatures….
Due to lack of punctuation, your reply was fairly incoherent. What is your specific knowledge? Where are your qualifications to be disseminating this type of information? Why isn’t there anything but ridiculous spam comments on your About page? What research did you do for this article? And why did you choose normal photos for all the dogs but the pit? My opinion hasn’t changed a bit, you are still dangerous to dogs.
It seemed a fair question to me, and not a very “grown up” response to it.
Hey dear don’t take that personal, we just provide information related to that dogs who are best and more efficient with their work. Due to this reason they are called dangerous in our list. As we all know about the dog’s nature, they are good with their owner’s but they are not that much good for stranger,
Thanks for your comment.
Actually, I have a pit bull and he is extremely loving. When we have guests and friends over he treats them with lobe, he gives them hugs and kisses. Occasionally he eats a few pillows but of then that he has done no damage. I have has him for two years and he hasn’t hurt anyone. Him or his brother for that fact. So please stop putting pit bulls to shame. Their nature all depends on how they were raised by their own not the breed itself.
Why you all are taking our article in negative way. We aleady told you that they are dangerous for enemies if you train them . There are huge varieties of pitbulls too.
of course they are not good to strangers, but these dogs (pitbulls and rottweilers) are for protection. I assume that the people who own them, have them for protection. When you have a dog like these is not to make friends or to let strangers in your home, is to protect it. These dogs are extremely loyal to their owners and if they are trained well, in the presence of their owners or someone familiar, they won’t do any harm. You can’t generalize based on dogs who aren’t trained properly or strangers who enter someone’s home without their consent
I am sorry but I do not see where you got ANY of your information. My grandfather is an ex cop who owns germans and he never really trains them to do anything but be house trained and know what a kennel is other than that they are just lazy fur bags that love everyone. They do need socialization with other dogs but thats about it. Also, I have met several rotts who live in family homes with babies, children and adults. Never heard of anything happening. All we well socialized and just love bugs. Worst thing that ever happened was I got knocked down, by four full grown rotts, to be licks and loved on. I have owned a pit bull. I have seen other dogs growl at her and even had a great pyrenees attack her. She didn’t do anything but run away, tail tucked, and get behind me to protect her. She was bigger by at least 20 pounds and still ran. She was a rescue and was abused as a puppy. She now lives out her days with a wonderful family (with three kids) who thought just like you until they got her. She has helped save MANY other abused dogs and bring them out of their shells. I could go on and on as I have pet sat, rescued, or had extended experience with ALL of the breeds listed here. While some information is true, it seems like the rest just got pulled out of the back end of a wanker. Also, how can ALL these dogs be on the top ten of the WORLD and not ONE is a Caucasian Mountain dog or the Central Asian Shepard? Afghan Koochee? It just seems like the is not a list of dangerous dogs of the world and more like dogs I hate but know nothing about.
You are awesome boss i agree with you
what the fuck pit bulls attack because they get abused and they have as much capability to bite as any other dog breed. i have seven pitbuls theyhave never attacked anyone and most pitbulls only attack when provoced or aproached by someone that looks similer to anyone that has abused them. so dont put up this bull shit if you dont know it for a fact asshole.
exactly my pit bull we got at a shelter and they found him cut and beaten and chained up in an old house’s basement and he won’t go in our basement and everytime i were black shoes he attacks my feet so u are very right
i have a pitbull and he is the sweetest thing ever and pitbulls are just steriotyped and all their bite reports are mixed with other teirrers in reality they have no more bites than a doxin does
well..there is a big lie regarding the rottweilers… I am Romanian and I have 3 of them and it is the first time i read that this dogs are banned in my country!
many people have them and you can find them to buy if you like!
I’m not sure where you get your info from however I have two Dalmatians and have had four others in the past 25 years and they were wonderful gentle dogs! It is all in how any dog is treated and trained….. just like a human!!
What total bull crap!
I’ve worked with many of these breed at a local shelter, and I have to say that you are wrong about these generalizations.I’m not just talking about my pet dog but hundreds who have gone through the shelter. Interesting fact,even though a majority of the dogs brought into/ found by the shelter are pit bulls and bully breeds the breed that goes on bit quarantine most often is labs. Breed doesn’t always matter when it comes to how dangerous a dog is, it can change on a dog to dog basis.
This was a very disappointing list that played upon ridiculous stereotypes that are fabricated out of fear and ignorance. Aggression in most or all of these breeds are a result of a certain type of HUMAN that goes for muscular, athletic, potentially lethal breeds and can mistreat the poor animals to drive them to behave in an aggressive way.
I agree that these dogs have a higher POTENTIAL to be dangerous because of their physiology: such as size, jaw strength, and speed. However, continuing the fearmongering about these breeds will only perpetuate the stereotyping that attracts the wrong kind of OWNERS who are the cause unwanted behaviors in dogs.
Really, how many reports do we see on the daily news about terrible attacks made by papillons, pugs, Daschunds or other small breeds? I’ve never seen them. I imagine they are scarce, indeed. That is simply because small breeds are incapable physically of devastating damage that may lead to severe injury or fatalities.
Going back to my second point: if you are going to speak about the POTENTIAL dangers of breeds, then state that clearly and don’t muddle your blog with incorrect information about the instinctual tendencies of breeds.
That said, this is a blog, and if all of this is merely your individual opinion of dogs, then you also need to take the time to say so. Stop spreading incorrect information as fact without proper citations, it’s extremely irresponsible.
You might as well have said, “power=danger” because there is nothing in these breeds’ nature to be aggressive. Poor owners MAKE their dogs aggressive by not training, exercising and socializing them properly. These dogs have a poor reputation just because they are powerful breeds. Anybody can tell you that small dogs have more issues with biting and behavioural issues BUT don’t have the power to actually harm (much).
You might as well have added lions, bears and tigers to the damn list because this list is based on pure lack of training of animals that happen to be powerful.
Whoever wrote this is a joke.
By the way, street dogs in the global south are the best behaved dogs because there are societal expectations to leave the dogs alone. It is only uneducated people or stupid tourists who decide to humanize and/or pet street dogs when they get attacked.
Also, you stated, ” I happen to have the worst experience of being chased by a group of dogs, just because I tapped one of the puppies. Go figure!!! – ”
Go figure? These are one of their pups- one of their YOUNG. Of COURSE they are going to be protective and chase you away. You are incredibly stupid if you think you can go around touching babies in both in nature and human society. So so stupid.
i agree with the list
I can’t speak for these other breeds but I don’t agree with the pitbull being number one. My boyfriend’s sister and her boyfriend have one, and she has scars like she was abused not by them I should add but has never growled barked snapped or even tried to hurt any living creature in their house. She’s the biggest baby I’ve ever seen and you can’t even play fight around her without her pushing who ever has their fists raised away and she won’t move till she’s sure you’re just goofing off.
The Pitbull description is absolutely ridiculous… It’s the owners and not the dogs who are responsible be it the pitbull or any other dog on the list. And the pitbull was also called the Nanny dog because of its loving nature towards children when trained properly. People have abused the dog and given it a bad name.
WOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!! YOU ARE A COMPLETE RETARD i have been around many pitbulls and various other dogs that you say “are dangerous ” and the way you describe them are not true at all! And by the way a dogs aggressiveness has nothing to do with the breed its the owner you dumbass.
Ok I get how pitbulls are on there they lock in there bite :O I had a Rottweiler but my mom gave him away she was not mean or anything but ^-^ I loved that dog
Maybe in wrong is that another dog that locks in there bite?
I mean still though pitbulls are loving my friend has one she says there totally nice I have never ment one before I have just saw a baby one at a pet store I played with a puppy ^-^!
Whatever the popular dog at the time, that is the one that will be labeled most dangerous. Pit bulls are the most popular dog to own right now, if there are far more of them than any other breed of course there will be more incidents of biting. This has been true in the past with other breeds. Pit bulls are mutts, they are no pure breeds & what is classified as a pit bull included a mix of at least a dozen breeds. I have a mix that the boys next door have made her fear strange men by hitting her in the face with a basketball to stop her barking at them because she wants to play……fear the little girl that runs behind someone she knows if you are a male. I am a DANGEROUS PIT BULL OWNER!!
I have a small dog and it’s tried to bite countless people on the ankle because they have turned their back on her or tried to approach her. We tell people every time not to approach her or turn their backs on her. Doesn’t matter what WE say, everyone knows what’s best. It’s in my belief that most dog bites come from people THINKING they know a dog. If you act scared around a dog it realizes it. You have to be firm with a dog. And whatever you do, don’t move fast around a dog that is acting skittish. It really makes things worse. Seems like I’ve had far more bites from small dogs than large ones, Especially chihuahuas. But because I’ve been bitten by dogs, doesn’t mean I hate them and don’t love to have one around.
Yup they are dangerous too if you do not know how to deal with them .
ranking seems to be interesting but your articulation about their behaviours is not unacceptable becoz the owners are accountable for their dogs behaviours irrespective of what breed it is. its the owner responsibility to teach discipline and shape up the behaviour of their pets like how they they responsible for their child behaviours .don’t blame the breeds becoz its all depend upon the owners
