Most Dangerous Dog Breeds | A List of Potentially Hazardous Hounds

While any dog has the potential to be vicious, the most dangerous dog breeds are more prone to violent outbursts.

Here is a comprehensive list of the most dangerous dog breeds from around the world and some tips on how to handle them.

Great Dane

Because they are known to be territorial and protective of their family companions, Great Danes can attack with little warning. And as with the sheer size of a Great Dane, the size of the bite can have a serious impact.


German Shepherd

Originating in Germany and bred to be the ideal sheepherder, this breed is naturally prone to showing aggression towards strangers.



Perro de Presa Canario

These bulky canines make perfect guard dogs. Dependable in the workplace with a muscular build and fearlessness, the Presa is a powerhouse to be reckoned with.
