Top Ten Dog Breeds People Shouldn't Be Scared Of

The Top Ten

1 Boxer

I agree

They are very sweet, just incredibly hyper.

2 Staffordshire Bull Terrier The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a medium-sized, short-coated breed of dog. It is of English lineage, and is one of several breeds generally considered to be within the pit bull type.

These dogs are so sweet and are not at all aggressive. People only think they are aggressive because of the reputation that WE gave them. Think about it, they because aggressive because WE train them to be. We train them to fight other dogs and sometimes, to death. I have seen about 20 bulls terriers in a shelter of 30. so don't be scared of them

My uncle had two of these, and they had been brought up with practically no troubles. - PositronWildhawk

3 Doberman 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.

They can certainly be dangerous if they are not well-controlled and well-trained, but they are good dogs if the owner is responsible and knows what he or she is doing.

Very true! I know that Doberman May look tenacious, aggressive, mean and angry dogs but if they’re trained they are actually quite friendly.

4 Rottweiler

Easily one of my favourite dog breeds. Intelligent, ever-watching and affectionate animals. If they grow up with a diverse range of delightful people and other animals, they wouldn't hurt a fly, unless it was attacking the creatures it has sworn itself to protect. - PositronWildhawk

They are are very nice and I don't think people should be scared of them I've met one and they are not scary at all once you get to know them

I know a person with a rottweiler, she is sweet, loyal, intelligent, fun and adorable! - ToptenPizza

My family had a rottweiler. He was really playful and loved kids! - DogsUnleashed

5 Saint Bernard The St. Bernard or St Bernard is a breed of very large working dog from Swiss Alps and north Italy and Switzerland, originally bred for rescue.
6 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.

I've owned 2 German Shepherds at different times, and they're the kindest and most loving dogs as well as being loyal, friendly and devoted. Great with kids too. There's no need to be scared of them. Love them and treat them with the respect they deserve and they'll repay you many, many times over.

I agree with cosmo, I love German Shepherds! - Pegasister12

German shepards are awesome and helpful. I love this breed. - cosmo


7 Giant Schnauzer
8 Chow Chow The Chow Chow is a dog breed originally from northern China, where it is referred to as Songshi Quan, which means "puffy-lion dog".

I is chow chow and I am a happy doggy!

A chow chow almost killed me an time...then you say that I can't be afraid of it

9 Great Dane The Great Dane is a large German breed of domestic dog known for its giant size. The German name of the breed is Deutsche Dogge, or German Mastiff.

A lot of people are scared of large dogs, and this is the largest, but also one that I would never expect to attack me. - PositronWildhawk

10 Siberian Husky The Siberian Husky is a medium size, dense-coat working dog breed that originated in north-eastern Siberia.

My older cousin has one and my relatives are scared of it. They shouldn't! It's beautiful and cute!

The Contenders

11 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.

I know that American Pit Bull Terriers have had the reputation for being dangerous and aggressive but are actually real sweet hearts. Lots of people are scared of them but shouldn't be because they are known for fighting, but they are just misunderstood.

It's the owner's fault usually.

12 Pug The Pug is a breed of dog with a wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail. The breed has a fine, glossy coat that comes in a variety of colours, most often fawn or black, and a compact square body with well-developed muscles. However, Pugs have difficulty breathing, due to their extreme head shape. more.
