Aggressive Dog Breeds


When it comes to aggressive dog breeds, an experienced dog owner is better suited to handle them but there are a few that any new owner could handle.

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

This breed originated in Africa for the purpose of protecting livestock from lions, yes lions. Rhodesign Ridgebacks are powerful dogs and are capable of being exceptionally brutal.



Another African-bred dog, the Boerboel originated in South Africa where it was bred to guard farmers’ livestock against leopards and lions.
