There are dog breeds out there that are known to be quite more aggressive than others. Sure, a dog can be trained to be aggressive, but some breeds are known to be inherently aggressive. This is a topic that has known to become a heated debate between pet owners all over. A lot of people would claim that even the most ‘dangerous’ breed makes the best pet. However, some breeds are known to be more aggressive than others when taking breeding history into account.
Are you in the market for a new puppy and looking for information on which breeds are typically the safest around you and your children? Look no further- we’ve compiled a list of the most dangerous dogs.
1. Pit Bull
This type of dog has been known to come second to none in dog fights. When people hear the word “Pit Bull”, they typically associate it with dogfighting and extremely aggressive behavior. Rightfully so, considering all that has been in the news regarding this extremely muscular and tough-looking breed. The Pit Bulls ancestors, the Bulldog, were used for dog fighting and bull baiting a very long time ago. It’s unfortunate that some illegal dog fighting rings still operate.
It’s equally as unfortunate that some of the time, this breed gets into the hands of an irresponsible owner who uses these dogs to fight for a profit. Most times this breed is not neutered or spayed and may be tied outside or left to roam free. It’s the perfect mixture for creating an aggressive dog. Many were bred to be aggressive and this pattern will most likely continue.
