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. That’s not to say that every so-called dangerous dog is a threat, though.

Some ‘dangerous’ dogs are not so much aggressive as they are unaware of their own strength. This lists 27 of the top-ranked most dangerous dog breeds in the world.


American Pitbull Terrier

 Pitbulls are not inherently dangerous dogs, but rather are prone to more vicious attacks through irresponsible ownership, neglect, and abuse.



These large, bulky dogs have been appointed guardians and protectors time and time again for their solid strength and dominating presence.


Chow Chow

Chow Chows can be both aggressive and stubborn. Quick to take a snap when irritated, these dogs don’t gel well with more affectionate individuals.

Doberman Pinscher

With irresponsible breeding or poor training as well as not enough energy-releasing exercise – these factors can increase aggression.
