Scientists, experts and common dog lovers can’t agree on which dog breed should be considered the most dangerous in the
world. However, due to frequent attacks on people certain breeds are banned from breeding, keeping and selling in many
countries. We took these “black lists” as the base for our own top-10 of the so called “most dangerous” dog breeds.

  1. the most dangerous dogs are the ones who were raised to be dangerous. don’t discriminate against a whole breed.

    1. +BBR A little true, but there’s also rehabilitation in which you teach the dog which responses are appropriate for the situation and what the nature of the situation actually is and many dogs are aggressive out of anticipating danger.

    2. it is not just how they are raised, but their breed also- a Chihuahua attack does way less damage than a pit bull or German shepherd attack. Certain breeds are naturally stronger and more aggressive, that is why they should be owned with caution. pit bulls are massive powerful balls of muscle that can kill you even if they are just “playing” with you.

  2. To be honest, it all deepends on the owner. Good owner can make the most fearsome looking dog be like a giant puppy, and a bad owner can make the calmest dog breed on the world agressive and dangerous. So I always get pissed off when people say that all dogs of some breed should be put down because of actions of few. It’s like, you punish murderer’s samily for crime they have not commited. That’s just cruel and heartless.

  3. the most dangerous breed on earth is man and as such we are the ones who breed these dogs to be as they are

    1. It’s not the dog.. but the man behind the dog,..u can make a known cur into a killer …many times a pitbull gets thrown into a fight and at first won’t fight until it’s been bitten on so many times that it’s survival mode kicks in and all of a sudden your cur becomes a killer .. pitbulls are tremendous dogs with it’s will to please is second to none

    2. +Henry Santiago ..Extremely true. My brother had a pitbull named Apollo. He weighed around maybe 90 to 100 lbs.
      A trained guard dog but had the best
      temperament that any owner could ever want in a dog. Once he got your scent it was all good. Belly rubs, play time, good with kids but had an amazing ability to confront another dog that foolishly got into the backyard. His bark was fierce and most dogs ran away but those that stayed to fight lost the confrontation. As you said..humans make bad dogs and it is true that a pit only wants to please it’s owner and get acknowledged for doing a good job. They don’t deserve the rep that they have. They really don’t for I’ve seen small dogs that were more vicious than some pits. It’s HUMAN input and negative training that causes a pit to become dangerous.

    1. had some of them. my pit was a very loving dog. if any dog os mistreated enough by owner or people yes any dog can be mean. good owners have good dogs of any breed

  4. Bulldogs, aren’t dangerous.
    Bandogs aren’t dangerous.
    Neapolitan Mastiffs aren’t dangerous
    Wolf dogs aren’t dangerous
    Boerbowls aren’t dangerous
    Dogo arengtinos aren’t dangerous
    Canary Mastiffs aren’t dangerous
    Fila barzilaros aren’t dangerous
    Tosa inus aren’t dangerous
    Pitbulls are dangerous.
    These dogs are sweeties!
    The people you trained them are the dangerous ones.

  5. I have a pitbull/bulldog named bullet and he looks like an actual monster yet people are shocked when he runs up to me and ask as for a hug or a treat with a smile on his face

  6. Bruh within the first 10 seconds of the video, they showed a MUZZLED dog being kicked in the nose. Agressive? More like reasonably annoyed.

  7. Oh piss off, I have a pitbull and they are the sweetest dogs in the world. It’s all about how they are raised as a pup.

  8. People do not understand what dangerous means.
    I think the problem is that they are getting it confused with aggression.
    Danger is something that you cant train out of dogs, because it’s not a matter of their aggressive of not.

    If a huge Pitt bull is a sweet Angel baby, it doesn’t mean that it’s not dangerous. Because Pitt bulls are very dangerous dogs with tremendous bite forces, and the tendency to, when they attack, to grab hold and shake viciously with their jaws. And even if a Chihuahua is a demon from the fiery depths of hell, it’s still one of the least dangerous dogs. For it can do little dammage. I hope you get my point.

    1. My mom new someone who’s face was mutilated by a Chihuahua. And they say toy breeds are “sweet ” and “adorable”

    1. They are not all the same. Have you ever seen a chow, for instance, that wasn’t very ill-tempered? I haven’t. You’re taking a greater risk with certain breeds, even if the dog is treated well. You might have a great experience with the dog and no bad incidents of any kind. But it’s kind of like playing Russian roulette: the odds are in your favor, but…

    1. No such thing as a herding breed either? We don’t need border collies anymore as pitbulls are natural herders aren’t they?
