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.
Known as being one of the best guard dogs around, the Doberman Pinscher was bred for protection which is why they are widely used within the military and police.
Malamutes are often confused with their relative, the Siberian Huskies, but are larger in size and much more aggressive.
Rottweilers are a popular breed if you’re looking for a powerful and loyal dog. This is the breed that is perceived as being a highly aggressive dog, especially within the media.
They are the breed of choice for the military and police for their agility and intellect. The most obvious trait of theirs is that they can, and do, bite when being territorial.
These dogs are used as hunting dogs, and back in the day, they were also World War 1 guard dogs. They are a high-energy breed that needs vast amounts of exercise.
