Aggressive Dog Breeds

When it comes to man’s best friend, there is a dog out there for everyone and any dog lover will always have a preference for a particular breed.

For those who want a little protection and safety, I have put together a list of 27 dog breeds that may be aggressive but with the right training are absolutely lovable and can be great family and companion dogs.

Bull Terrier

Bull Terriers have been known to be loyal family companions for some time now but they also happen to be one of the most aggressive dog breeds.


Rhodesian Ridgeback

Rhodesign Ridgebacks are powerful dogs and are capable of being exceptionally brutal. They are also known for their speed and hunting instincts, which is why some consider this breed to be aggressive.




Another African-bred dog, the Boerboel originated in South Africa where it was bred to guard farmers’ livestock against leopards and lions. These giants can grow to weigh between 150-200 pounds and up to 27 inches tall.


Saint Bernard

Originating in the Swiss/Italian Alps, Saint Bernards have been used for centuries as rescue dogs to save people from avalanches. This strong working background means that they do well when they have a purpose.

American Bulldog

The American Bulldog breed has multiple types with each having its own distinct appearance. There is the Classic type, also known as the Johnson type, and the Standard, also known as the Scott type.
