Best Badass Guard Dogs


The Top Ten

1 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.

Super territorial dogs and extremely loyal and great family pet everybody that gets these dogs need to train them so that they don't get aggressive you just need to have the right patience time time time remember it requires time

The are universally known to be very protective of what they own. I have one from Germany, and to most everyone he meets he is extremely friendly. He also can tell if someone's trying to be sneaky. Plus factually the most bite pressure of any dog breed (1/2 as much as Tyrannosaurs-Rex). #1

Rottweiler should be higher than 5 it is the most protective guard dog I know it has the strongest grip in the teeth and they are very loving to humans. They are active and playful loyal dogs. Plus I've never even heard of the boerboel before.

It depends how you train the rottweiler

2 German Shepherd German Shepherd The German Shepherd is a breed of medium to large-sized working dog that originated in Germany. The breed's officially recognized name is German Shepherd Dog in the English language. The breed is known as the Alsatian in Britain and Ireland.

Definitely shouldn't be on this list. German Shepherds are the most wonderful, kind, loving, gentle & devoted dogs on the planet. They are also very intelligent, hence the reason they're used for police/security purposes.

These are great guardians - OneWayStreet

German Shepherds are NOT BAD ASS DOGS!

Bad ass in the BEST WAY! When God made dogs, the German Shepherd was standing first in line. They are truly glorious dogs.

These dogs are huge, strong, fast, it's natural for someone to get scared from this dog, only the bravest can rob from this dog.

4 Boerboel

I like this guys, but they're nothing compared to a kangal

5 Argentinian Mastiff

There's stories of dogos fighting off mountain lions, seriously badass stuff.

Proud and respectful. Need training in order to see their great potential. Surprisinglly good swimmers.

Very smart, easy to train, loves her family, if socialized with farm animals, is very tolerant of them, including goats, cats, horses and other smaller dogs. Loves to ride shotgun in our big truck. Got a CGC at 11 months. House trained herself. She was shipped from FL at 10 weeks and upon, arrival her crate was (sealed) and clean and dry. Awesome dog, I.E. dogo, can't say enough good about her! Great companion, too.

Pretty damn badass, kangals are better

6 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.

Fierce dogs, yet very loyal and sweet. Overall it is a great watch dog, guard dog and well not so much companion but it will give you kisses

7 Pyrenean Mountain Dog

Extremely loyal loving and gentle but there in an instant if they perceive any threat

These hoes ain't loyal?

8 The Moscow Watchdog

Its called a Watchdog for a reason

Watch dog but not GUARD dog. Kangals are both.

9 Pitbull Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

Why does this have a picture of Pitbull (the rapper)?

Most badass dog that was ever bred into existence. 60/10


Best dog

10 Kangal

Should be number 1. This thing can take on a whole wolf pack alone just to protect it's humans and their livestock. That's extreme loyalty and strength to me.

Strongest dog in the world hands down

As badass as dogs can get

Definitely cannot take on a pack of wolves,I've seen the photos were wolves have eaten a Kangal.Even 1 on 1 will have trouble against large European wolf

The Contenders

11 Greater Swiss Mountain Dog
12 Cane Corso Cane Corso

The best dog ever bred. Loyal, and willing to defend his family until the end. Yet, they aren't afraid to be independent.

I have one. She is very intelligent and gentle. Even sweet with our yorkie, but if I am wary of someone she starts looking and acting scary immediately!

Best alarm, always watching and guarding.

It's a goods guard dog plus it's the bad ass dog from the movie sandlot

23 Leonberger Leonberger The Leonberger is a giant dog breed. The breed's name derives from the city of Leonberg in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

They are very sweet in nature but if trained as a guard dog they are the best choice in my opinion. They are bigger than most of the dogs on the list and faster as well. They do however need to be trained. They do best in a large area so if just guarding an apartment or house I would go for a bullmastiff as they are calmer.

24 Dogo Argentino Dogo Argentino The Dogo Argentino, also known as the Argentine Mastiff, is a large, white, muscular dog that was developed in Argentina primarily for the purpose of big-game hunting, including wild boar; the breeder, Antonio Nores Martínez, also wanted a dog that would exhibit steadfast bravery and willingly protect more.

Argentinian mastiff. Mentioned befor in this post.

26 Yorkshire Terrier Yorkshire Terrier The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed of terrier type, developed during the 19th century in Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills.

My Yorkie will bite anyone he doesn't know. He's pretty much a Rottweiler inside a Yorkie's body. - EspioTheChameleon
