Top 10 Most Aggressive Dog Breeds

This is a list of the top ten most aggressive dog breeds.

The Top Ten

1 American Pit Bull Terrier American Pit Bull Terrier The American Pit Bull Terrier is a dog breed. It is a medium-sized, solidly-built, short-haired dog whose early ancestors came from the British Isles.

Because they are strong, intelligent dogs that are eager to please, pit bulls can be made into highly aggressive killing machines. That said, reputable studies clearly demonstrate pit bulls are not inherently aggressive. In fact, pit bulls are less aggressive towards people than average which makes them relatively poor guard dogs unless they are trained for that purpose.

They kill more people a year than spiders do in the US. I'm not saying all pit bulls are aggressive, their not. But they are much more prone to aggression than lots of other dog breeds. But its proven that chihuahuas are more aggressive, but I would rather have a aggressive 6 pound chihuahua than a tearing aggressive 80 pound pit bull. - BlueberryCatfish

No dog is aggressive unless a human being makes him that way. - UltimateHybridX

It's not their fault. It's the owner's. - AnnieCallie

2 Rottweiler Rottweiler The Rottweiler is a breed of domestic dog, regarded as medium-to-large or large.The dogs were known in German as Rottweiler Metzgerhund, meaning Rottweil butchers' dogs, because one of their uses was to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat to market.

We are owning a Rottweiler in my house, and she is not aggressive at all

I have one named spot. He was mean and scary at first but he saved mah life! I'm allergic to bees and I whacked a nest with a stick on accident...bees came out and well... SPOT TO THE RESCUE! He pulled at my sleeve and then attacked those bees, began barking super loud until my mom woke up and set bug spray down! He's still a little agressive today.

Seriously, I don't know why my dad love them so much!

The is a very big and strong dog breed. - Awesomelionking

That's only if you don't train them well enough, then they could disobey you and turn aggressive. My tip is to train them early. Do not underestimate this breed, it is very powerful and very intelligent. - Pegasister12

I love German Shepherds, but yes, they are more prone to aggression issues than some other dogs and if not properly trained they can become extremely aggressive.

The German shepherd dog is a very intelligent and protective dog breed. - Awesomelionking

5 Doberman Pinscher Doberman Pinscher The Doberman Pinscher, or Dobermann, or Doberman, is a medium-large breed of domestic dog originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a tax collector from Germany.

If a Rottweiler and a Doberman bred, would they have puppies that look just like them due to the parents having similar coats and patterns?

The Doberman is a tall and confident dog. Its coat is very similar to the rottweiler. - Awesomelionking

They aren't really very aggressive. I have one and he's fine. Yeah, he sometimes snaps, but he's a puppy and still learning. Huskeys and Akitas are way more aggressive.

The Dalmatian is a spotted dog that is tall and has lots of energy. They are good with kids at all. - Awesomelionking

Maybe but they have to get a hold of it first, you must live in Middle East. Pits will get the neck or belly first, will fight to exhaustion, while kangal bleeds out, that's like fighting a elephant with a lion

These brutes could tear a pit bull in half, they deserve it too
