Top 10 Most Badass Guard Dogs

The Top Ten
1 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.

They 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, half as much as a Tyrannosaurus Rex. #1

Rottweilers should be higher than 5. They are the most protective guard dogs I know. They have the strongest grip in the teeth and are very loving to humans. They are active, playful, loyal dogs. Plus, I've never even heard of the Boerboel before.

2 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.
3 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.

Badass in the best way! When God made dogs, the German Shepherd was standing first in line. They are truly glorious dogs.

The best all-around dog in the world! Can be used with the Military, Law Enforcement, Personal Protection, or as a family dog!

Loyal to the owner and guards at night. Very kind and powerful, also a police dog K-9. It is the third most intelligent dog.

4 Caucasian Shepherd The Caucasian Shepherd Dog is a large breed of dog that is popular in Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and North Caucasus area.

These dogs are huge, strong, and fast. It's natural for someone to be scared of this dog. Only the bravest can rob from this dog.

Have you seen these dogs? I own one and it's BIG! Very strong and mine is very aggressive to anyone but me and my boyfriend.

These dogs cannot be brought down and will keep going no matter what. I would not want to be on the receiving end of that bite.

5 Cane Corso A breed of Italian origin, the Cane Corso is a large and powerful mastiff used for guarding property and as a companion animal. It has a short coat and is distinguished by its keen intelligence and trainable nature.

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!

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

Best alarm, always watching and guarding.

6 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 watchdog, guard dog, and while not so much a companion, it will give you kisses.

7 Boerboel
8 Argentinian Mastiff

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. She house trained herself. She was shipped from Florida at 10 weeks and upon arrival, her crate was sealed, clean, and dry. Awesome dog, i.e. Dogo. Can't say enough good about her. Great companion, too.

Proud and respectful. They need training to see their great potential. Surprisingly good swimmers.

9 Pyrenean Mountain Dog

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

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

They are actually bad guard dogs and very friendly family dogs.

12 Kangal

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

This would be the ultimate dog if it wasn't so independent! Amazing dogs if you have livestock to be guarded.

13 Greater Swiss Mountain Dog
14 Tibetan Mastiff The Tibetan Mastiff is a type of large Tibetan dog breed. Originating with the nomadic cultures of China, India, Mongolia, Nepal and Tibet, its use by local tribes of Himachal Pradesh was to protect sheep from wolves, leopards, bears, large mustelids, and tigers.
15 Bullmastiff The Bullmastiff is a large-size breed of domestic dog, with a solid build and a short muzzle. The Bullmastiff shares the characteristics of molosser dogs, and was originally developed by 19th-century gamekeepers to guard estates.
16 Akita

My first Akita weighed in at 175 lbs, all muscle. Purebred and healthy.

17 Dogue de Bordeaux

There's not much to really say. This dog might not look overall impressive, but mess around near one and you'll see why it's considered a bad dude!

18 Perro de Presa Canario The Perro de Presa Canario, A.K.A. the Canary Mastiff, is a large Molosser-type dog breed originally bred for working livestock.
19 Fila Brasileiro The Fila Brasileiro also known as the Brazilian Mastiff is a large working breed of dog developed in Brazil.

A mastiff type dog mixed with a bloodhound. Pretty freaking amazing, but overly protective.

20 Neapolitan Mastiff The Neapolitan Mastiff or Mastino is a large, ancient dog breed. This massive breed is often used as a guard and defender of family and property due to their protective instincts and their fearsome appearance.

Close cousin to the Corso, just bigger, heavier, and more wrinkly. However, almost as athletic. Extremely deceiving in their appearance.

21 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.

These would defend me easily if I had one, I think!

22 Kuvasz

Excellent dogs. They will alert and protect their owner from an intruder. Very level-headed and situationally aware. They are also very smart.

23 Boxer The Boxer is a medium-sized, short-haired breed of dog, developed in Germany. The coat is smooth and tight-fitting; colours are fawn, mahogany, black or brindled, with or without white markings, and white.
24 Belgian Malinois
25 English Mastiff The English Mastiff is a breed of extremely large dog perhaps descended from the ancient Alaunt and Pugnaces Britanniae, with a significant input from the Alpine Mastiff in the 19th century.

It's a good guard dog plus it's the badass dog from the movie Sandlot.
