Let’s meet the dog breeds whose representatives have bad temper and are dangerous to people. Besides the dogs bred specifically for fighting, there are other breeds that can threaten the human health and life.



Bull Terrier

The bull terrier is probably the most famous fighting dog that came from Great Britain. These unusually muscular animals can be strongly attached to their master, which makes them extremely dangerous to others: the slightest sense of jealousy may cause a bull terrier fight to the death to defend their master.



American Pitbull

The American Pitbull is another fighting dog breed, this time from the US. Having the same liveliness and fighting spirit as their British cousins, pitbulls don’t even like their own masters too much. That’s why many Pitbull owners prefer to carry a gun just in case.



The Rottweiler is a German guard dog breed, one of the largest in the world. The size itself makes them dangerous, not to mention their powerful jaws. The Rottweiler is the most reliable guard dog, but it can easily turn into a murderer without proper control.


German Shepherd

The German Shepherd is a compatriot of the Rottweiler. It was specifically bred to assist the man, that’s why German Shepherds often serve in the police, the customs and the military. Fortunately, German Shepherds are highly intelligent, bud it does not make them any less dangerous.



Just the name of the Boxer alone is enough to make you think about some unpleasant interactions with this breed. Its exterior and the genetic predisposition to aggression only confirms your suspicions. Besides, Boxers are extremely stubborn and difficult to train.


Tosa Inu

The Tosa Inu is a fighting dog breed from Japan, the homeland of many martial arts. Like a true Ninja, the Tosa Inu fights in silence, without engaging the opponent recklessly. Tosa Inu dogs are calm and balanced, yet decisive and stubborn, which makes them unpredictable and dangerous. Tosa Inu are also called “four-legged Sumo wrestlers”, because they are large, heavy, fearless in the battle and insensitive to pain.


Fila Brasileiro

The Fila Brasileiro looks similar to the phlegmatic Bloodhound, but this impression is deceptive. It is perfectly common for those dogs to attack the jury members on dog shows, and this will not get them disqualified. In some countries you can own a Fila Brasileiro dog only with a special permission from the court.



Huskies are amazing dogs with piercing eyes. The Husky and other breeds from the North resemble wolves, and for a good reason. These adorable blue-eyed creatures are very active and have a playful and untamed nature. It often turns into aggression and a total loss of control.


Chow Chow

The Chow Chow seems to be a very calm Chinese dog, but without persistent training it may become aggressive. Keep in mind that the Chow is a massive dog, even if it looks like a plush bear. Chow Chow owners often carry a can of pepper spray.



Originating from the South Slavic country of Croatia, the Dalmatian dog has a unique character. Being energetic and independent, along with having a developed self-preservation instinct, sometimes makes a Dalmatian rise to the bait and demonstrate aggression. By the way, bull terriers and some other fighting dog breeds have some Dalmatian blood in them.
