Pit bulls have massive, muscular bodies, incredible bite force that reaches 870 pounds on a square meter. So, you can kind of see why these guys are very rough and why people in the US think they are dangerous.

Back in the days, they used to make pit bulls fight one another. These dogs are unusually strong indeed. If they’re not trained then they are most likely violent and out of control.

These guys need to be tamed and taken good care of. They require a lot of attention and if you give it to them, they’ll grow into good, well-behaved doggies.

Doberman is of the most popular dog breeds in the world. And they are also very dangerous. They appeared in Germany in the late 19 century.

They have great endurance, they run very fast and they look all nice and elegant. They’re also loyal and fearless. Their average height is 2.5 feet and they typically weigh about 100 pounds.

All of which makes them a great guard dog. In reality, they’re not as aggressive as many people tend to think. They only act aggressively towards crazy and hostile people.

Although of course like any dog, they can sometimes attack a person without any particular reason. They have a choleric temperament.

And because these dogs get used to their owners so much, sometimes they can be overly protective, which means they can attack other people and other dogs without any particular reason.

So, it’s very important to pay attention to them from a very young age and try to make them as sociable as possible.

Boerboelis a service dog breed from South Africa. And even though World Canine Organization doesn’t recognize them as an official breed, these dogs are still recognized as some of the most powerful and dangerous kinds of dogs on the planet.

This is also evident by the fact that it is forbidden to breed these dogs in some countries. As absurd as it may seem, these dogs were originally designed to protect people from leopards. And sometimes in a fight against a leopard, they would actually win.

So overall, these dogs are very strong, they have a great response and they usually weigh about 200 pounds. Interestingly, most dog handlers say that only experienced people can deal with this kind of dog. Those who have years of experience.

By the way, Boerboel requires a lot of training. They need it like no other dog. Because if they’re not trained right, they will turn into an ultimate killing machine.

They can attack and bite for no particular reason. Just because they are inherently aggressive. But if you take care of it from the very beginning then you’ll surely get yourself a nice dog that you can always count on.

The Caucasian Shepherd is one of the largest dogs in existence. And they can be quite dangerous. Caucasian Shepherds recommend socializing these dogs when they’re still little.

It is very important to show these dogs that their master is the most important figure in their life. So that they obey you and listen to whatever you say to them.

If you don’t do that then after a couple of years it will be impossible to change the dog’s train of thought. Also, you shouldn’t leave kids alone with these dogs. Because the kid s screaming can be misinterpreted by the dog as a kind of threat.

A properly raised Caucasian Shepherd however is a great dog and it will protect its owner s house no matter what.

6. Canary Mastiff

It’s funny how some of the dogs that can be very dangerous actually don t look dangerous at all. While they really can fight and bite and be all menacing and that.

So Canary dogs are kind of like that. They are essentially a shepherd dog that appeared in Spain. They have a wide chest, curved sort of ribs, strong limbs, short muzzle, and their head essentially looks like a kind of cube.

All of this sort of indicates that a Canary dog is a dangerous type of breed. And they can be quite aggressive at times.

They typically don t trust people they don’t know so don t be surprised if they feel like attacking you. And so, because they often act so unpredictable, it is forbidden to breed these dogs in some countries of the world.

Like in Australia for example it’s not allowed. Same thing in New Zealand and Malesia. And as usual, you can train those dogs to make them less aggressive but that requires a lot of effort, lots of love, and respect. But it’s all worth it because, in the end, you get a very loyal and reliable friend.

7. Rottweiler

Despite the fact that some Rottweilers don t look too menacing and are not as muscular as pit bulls, they often surpass their American friends in many things. One of those being bite force.

Their sis 1130 pounds per square meter. Apply to that their muscular legs, their torso, a heavyweight that sometimes revolves around 110 pounds, and their genetically embedded feature of protecting the house and their owner and you’ll get a true German monster.

This dog will protect its house and master till it’s dead. There aren’t that many dogs who can deal with it in terms of strength and endurance.

And if you don t pay attention to your Rottweilers, they can become very bitter and turn into real monsters you don t want to mess around with. It’s not easy training Rottweilers but if you manage, you get yourself a good and solid gold friend.

8. Tibetan Mastiff

Tibetan Mastiff looks very pretty. And most importantly, they are a very calm kind of dog. Back in the olden day’s people were using them for search parties and they also made for great shepherd dogs.

One of the things they’re really good at is navigation, which is why they are great shepherds. And if we think about the past, these dogs are known for leading entire caravans.

So why is it that these dogs are on our list you might ask? Well, because of their massive size, these dogs are extremely strong. Also, as you know, appearances are deceptive.

They might look cute on the outside but they are actually real aggressors on the inside. Not always though. Only if their master is in danger. Apart from that, they are pretty peaceful.

Also, they bark very loudly. They have this very distinctive, powerful voice that frightens anyone who hears it. Also, their bite force is incredibly strong but it’s hardly surprising if you take into account their enormous size.

Chow Chow looks like a kind of mini lion you could say. They look all furry and cute and cuddly but you shouldn’t let their appearance fool you.

These dogs can even pose danger to their owners. These dogs are proud, aggressive, dominant and they don t tolerate smaller dogs.

Sometimes they attack without making any sound at all. Here is how one small chow chow once bit a poor little pug. Doctors say that people often suffer from severe chow chow bites.

Some say that you simply can’t train a dog like that because they are very independent. But I guess we could say for sure that if you take good care of them very early in life, you can make them behave in the future.
