Top Ten Worst Dog Breeds

The Top TenXW

1Chihuahua

I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU PEOPLE ARE AGAINST CHIHUAHUAS! I am an 11 year old girl who has the sweetest chihuahua in the world. She LOVES little children. She never ever snaps at them and instead just gives them kisses everywhere. Her name is Licky because she licks everyone because she loves everyone. She never makes a sound and is as quiet as a mouse. She is lazy sometimes, yes, but she is playful and just wants to play many times. She goes crazy in happiness when someone comes to the door and she jumps from room to room in extreme excitement. She never goes to the bathroom inside the house, she goes outside and she's never been potty trained. She knows how to sit. I taught her. She thinks she is a child just like my brother and I. She is just like our sister. The best sister EVER! The only time she ever went to the bathroom inside was during the night when we were all asleep and the doors to the garden were closed. Where did she pee? In front of the toilet on the mat! Now I think ...more

Yup, people that dislike Chihuahuas and little dogs shouldn't dislike the dog, they should dislike the owner who is a horrible dog owner, not a pack leader and lacks knowledge in knowing dogs instincts. THAT is the reason dogs (all breeds) act badly. - foreverafs

I own a chihuahua and I think she's a sweetheart but I wouldn't recommend a chihuahua to a first time dog owner. Some of the downsides are that they have ear piecing howls and are very hypo and have a lot of energy. And they are defiantly not for small children as they seem to snap a lot. Even though I've said this they are still sweet, they just are high maintenance

Your right, it really matters on if these kinds of dogs on the list are trained good and loved but if they're not then they would be pretty mean - PEANUT318

Terrible breed. Poops everywhere. I have owned dogs my entire life. Eskimos are my favorite. Have a friend and family member who own Chihuahuas and I have spent some time around them. They love there dogs to death but will never get another one as the are growling, howling, and come off vicious even though they could not hurt a fly, very unpleasant to be around. Poop, poop, poop... Cry, cry, cry... Bark, Bark, Bark. I have had plenty of dogs to know these brainless rodents are not a good breed.

Annoying little devils always barking and trying to scare you with their ugly faces

2American Pit Bull Terrier

I get that this is a very empathetic way of looking at empirical data, but I guess the logical question is if Pit Bulls are not the most likely to be violent, most likely to kill, strongest jaw and so on then why do dog fighters overwhelmingly choose this breed to fight? This is the dog that is trained to kill and be violent by the the same people that created the breed specifically for that function. I think what people are tired of is the rationalization that Pit Bulls are not going to do what is in their nature with the correct trigger. Hunters hunt, shepherds herd, hounds dig. Etc etc. Maybe mathematically as a percentage of populations the math does not support the stereotype, but to say that Pits are not genetically superior to most dogs for the role of attacking and killing their opponents is patently untrue, supported by the fact that they are mostly used for that specific purpose relative to their World wide populations. Think of it this way.. People tend to have dogs that ...more

You are completely wrong pit bulls just have a bad name there really good dogs it's the owners that make them mean you can train any dog to be mean or nice not all pit bulls are bad

You're all being unreasonable. Pit bulls are extremely nice and give you so much love, its not the dog, it's the owner. Same goes for rottweilers and Dobermans and all of the other dogs that are "mean" if you think pit bulls are mean, you've never met one. Same with all dogs with bad rep

Yes but I grew up with pit bulls and only own Pitt bulls, I have been bit by more small dogs than anything else it is not the dog it's the owner

Poor little guy. Only doing what he was bred for

3Chow Chow

These dogs are MEAN. They're mean to people and other dogs, plus they shed constantly and are impossible to train. My brother and his wife have one. She wasn't even cute as a puppy, and it's been impossible for them to train her on even basic commands. Coincidentally, my sister-in-law is also mean and high maintenance, so it's the perfect dog for her.

I had a chow/german shepherd mix and she was the best dog a person could ask for she loved kids was very gentle and protective they are prone to health problems unfortunatly

Meanest dogs I've ever known are chows. My dads only been but twice in his life, both times by chows. My friend owns one, and that things always picking fights too. Just my two cents, but I think insurance companies were right when they charge more for one.

Not very affectionate dogs in general

4Rottweiler

Rottweiler's are the sweetest and best dogs ever as long as they aren't raised in a crappy enviorment.

It's not the dog it's the owner they make the dogs mad and so they attack
Rottweilers are amazing I mean amazing dogs to own.

Rottweilers are not bad dogs. It all depends on the owner & the dog's environment. I have a rottweiler now and he is the sweetest, cuddliest, most caring dog ever! Also I grew up around rottweilers, they are the best kind of dog to have if you want a loving, cuddly, caring dog. Rottweilers are the best dogs ever!

Headstrong, yes but really lovely with the proper training

I heard they're more dangerous than a pit bull.

Humans created this breed. Just saying'

A breed that serves no purpose and should be culled.

I show with one.

6Alaskan Malamute

I have two Malamutes both females and they are well behaved girls. I don't know where you came up with the impression that they are a bad dog. Yes they are stubborn and get into things like every other dog I have had. I have 6 grandchildren and the dogs are right there with them and guess what NO ISSUES. They wait patiently for the kids to drop their food cause they are foodies. I appreciate that some people have had bad experiences but if you treat them like family they become family. If you abuse them you get what you give in return.

My Alaskan malamute was the best family dog I've ever had. Very loving caring and aware of children's where abouts at all times.

Alaskan Malamutes are really good dogs, they look and act somewhat like Siberian Huskies. Just saying the person who wrote "You people probably haven't even had one before" YOU SPELLED PROBABLY WRONG AND FOR YOUR INFORMATION I IN FACT DO HAVE ONE.

All they want is to run

7Dalmatian

I have had three dalmatians attack me and my little jack Russell terrier. I never had a good experience with a dalmatian yet.

I met one once, it was nice. Are prone to be definitely, though.

They are playful and probably thought your jack Russell terrier was a rodent...

8Doberman

We had a Doberman, and it was very cute when young, then when she got older she would non-stop smell people's groins. Then one day when the gas inspector came to measure the line she went off sniffing and then bit down hard and would not let him go of his pubic area, it was horrible absolutely horrible.

Yes they are smart, loyal and loveable but make sure you get one from a good line or they may too much too handle.

The used to be bad but most of the aggressiveness has been bred out of most lines. The modern Doberman is rather docile, loyal, intelligent and very trainable. A couple of walks a day is more than enough to keep the energy of most individuals down and steady and I'd even go as far as saying they're acceptable apartment dogs. No reason to be on this list to be honest. Smart, loyal, loveable, very few breed related negatives that I could think of.

Dobermans are one of the only dogs breed, bred for one job and one job only protecting and loving their family. They are loving with all people if brought up correctly and socialized love children, even if sometimes they forget their size, want nothing more than to be with you always. They have earned the name Velcro just for that reason.

I REALLY hate this list. Different dogs serve different purposes guys, and humans were the creators of them all.

10Pug

Best family dog ever. Awesome with both of my young children. More like a kid than a dog, but awesome nonetheless.

How can you say that?! Pugs are adorable!

Pugs are sweethearts so clever and such a cute little fat creatures I just love them!

Oh god, who ever says this dog is adorable is probably as ugly as the dog is, worst kind, a disgrace to its ancestors, the wolves

The Contenders

11Basenji

Listed among the smartest dogs for decades, with an incredible sense of smell. Playful loving dogs do not belong on this list.

These don't even bark how in the world can they be bad!?

Have two of these, but they bite me for some reason. I'm not making them mad.

More like a cat than a dog

12Bluetick Coonhound

Have little or no value as a pet never shut up and ruthlessly chase anything that moves, unless you plan to run/hunt your dog avoid this breed even though they are cute as hell

That comment is completely unfounded! I have had a Bluetick for 10 years, and she is the sweetest dog. She rarely makes noise, unless we encourage her to; her baying is so melodious! <3 She is happiest lying in the sun, soaking up the warmth, and must have the cushiest bed in order to be happy. She is a lover, and only gets a little 'perkier' when she spots a squirrel. She is happy to meet other dogs, unless they posture aggressively. A great breed; so endearing!

14Afghan Hound

Who ever put this here is stupid, I have one at home called Silky and she is the best dog! When my family members came to celebrate a festival or event they will bring my cousin's friends's little sister. When we let Silky came, she just ran over to the little girl, and starting playing with her and licking her on the face! When she got sick, she didn't even bother about her sickness! We were going on a vacation, and she went to see us leave, and each gave us a lick, and a rub on your legs, we love her. So you guys better change your minds about them! I love her, and I will forever. Don't judge a dog by it's looks, who ever thinks they're creepy and scaring, it's natural so better deal with it!

Don't be stupid I have a grandma that has 1 and she's a great dog sometimes she will bark at the door but that's it. She loves children, people, and even my grandma's other dog Max. Which is the only dog she's ever known except for 1 that died. I never want to see this Afghan Hound on the top ten list ever again. I'm definitely using another website.

I made a mistake. Whoever said "Whoever put this here is stupid" is not stupid. The person who put this on the list is stupid.

Any breed can be a good dog. Depends simply on the owner

15German Shepherds

Although many may agree with the ignorant opinion above, if you actually do your research and train you shepherd with positive reinforcement they are he best dog of all in my opinion. Like huskies, many people jump the gun and get a GSD before they Re ready and then act surprised that it doesn't just magically know commands and find out it needs to be trained. They are definitely by no means vicious in the slightest, but they can be a handful for people who don't have the dedication to give them the exercise they need. I've always have shepherds and always will, there isn't a more loyal or intelligent dog out there

These are not police dogs for nothing! They can be aggressive to there owner but this is because of pet abuse.The pet gets treated unfairly so does the owner. you just have to treat him fairly and he/she will love you and could be a house hold pet, a guard dog, military dog and police dog. German Shepherd are awesome pets and assistants at work. A German Shepard can be a pet and a worker at the same time because it knows when work is over and it's time to hang out. So the way I see it the German Shepard is only bad because it has a bad owner, a horrible trainer, and the person who wrote this has to go on the top ten list for the most stupid people. Everyone knows that German Shepard's are the top ten best dogs not worst! -Jayna age 10

Who put this on here? If you train them, they can be loyal to you. They are adorable in my opinion. - Pegasister12

17Chinese Crested Dog

Love my Chinese. Crested they are the Powder Puff version they are very cuddly and friendly The only downside to them is that they have a tendency to have bad teeth so I have them cleaned every 2 years

These are ugly little rats and they act terrible. I've been bit by one. They are not very smart dogs and should be at the top of this list

I think they are sweet. I never met one, but people say they are kind, even though they are not... Traditionally pretty atmosphere...

Never met one but they look sorta creepy.

18Golden Retriever

Best dog in the world! I have one at home and it's so loyal and loving. His name is Blitz and although he is way bigger than golden retriever is he is the cutest, sweetest, loving dog ever! they are just like a golden lab except longer more beautiful fur. My dog is is a red retriever. not a different breed but a reddish golden retriever and he's so pretty and is a great family dogs they love attention and it's really good to give it another dog to play with. which we did do. we got a multi jack-a-poo (a mutt)named pepper.Blitz can get annoying when he puts his paw on you but it's still cute and almost completely stopped after we got him Pepper! Golden retrievers are awesome great the best no dog can beat it's loyalty best animal in the world! I love them so much I can't even explain it.I love all dogs but this one is the best! most definitely the awesomest dog in human history! LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM! I'm so glad you put them on the best dog list can't what to show Blitz!

I was just kidding. I can see why they are good dogs they are easy to train and loyal. You may think I'm saying this to get hate off my back but I agree that they are good

Completely ridiculous, every Retriever and Lab I have owned has been gentle animals. The fact that they are on your list tells me this list is just an opinion by some underpaid writer. Get a new job!

19Boxer

This is the dumbest list ever like any dog can be the worst if they are raised wrong like I own a boxer and he is the sweetest dog ever but I am not here to rant about boxers being on the list because no dog should be here it is dumb to make a list about bad breeds because there is no such thing maybe a list about worst dog experiences would be better

I have a boxer and she is the sweetest thing ever but I do have to say my boxer is really stupid most of the time so I don't know if that's just my dog or if others have the same kind of situation.

My friend owned a boxer. I thought it would bite me. Instead, it walked up to me, sniffed me, and cuddled up next to me.

Nah, super funny little guys

20Dachshund

I have had this dog breed for over 20 years. A well socialized Dixie will love everyone. As a puppy you need to teach them not to bark. The barking can be controlled. They will bark to protect their home and that's okay. These dogs need attention and their minds have to be active to stay a well behaved loving dog.

We own a dachshund, the best little dog ever! Loves everyone! Good with kids! And loves the outdoors! Need a dog with lots of energy, this is the one!

My cousin owns a daschund. It is so sweet. They don't look at it, nor let it inside they house. Yet, it is so sweet. It would slowly walk up to me, sit down, and lick me hand
