The Top Ten
1 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.

Even if they can be scary they can be very loveable. I don't like how this certain photo was chosen, it makes them look scarier than they generally are. Mine is a precious sweet angel. He often doesn't know how big he is and just still ia a puppy on the inside.

There may be a lot of photos of scary tibetan mastiffs like this one, and yes their big and fluffy and could probably tear you limb by limb, but they can also be very sweet and angelic, mine is a very loveable dufus.

These are not the scariest dog breed!
if you will look at different pictures you will see this breed is cute!
I think the scariest dog breed is the bandog...

2 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.

German Shepherd dogs are NOT SCARY! I've had 2 German Shepherd dogs that were the kindest, most loving, gentle and loyal dogs you could ever own, and they were great with kids. However, never touch a German Shepherd dog you don't know. They could be highly trained to be guard dogs but that's not peculiar to German Shepherds. There are a lot of dogs that are trained to be guard dogs.

Sure they are adorable and cuddly, but they can be trained to attack. I like this breed because they look awesome!

3 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.

The dogs do have potential to be very good dogs, so don't start accusing me of being a hater. The truth is that people do sometimes train these dogs to be vicious, and unfortunately, there are very vicious ones. They scare me. They look like crocodiles to me and their jaws are so strong.

Pits are scary man! I mean, sure, you can find some of those and are sweet and loveable but there's also the killer machines.

They don't deserve to be here because they are so cute and playful but people are afraid of them, and they quialified to be on this list

4 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 will attack strangers and yes they are scary to none owners of the Doberman. But the owner can train him to be a nice gentle guy/girl. And they do have a very strong bite!

They are AGRESSIVE trust me they even look AGRESSIVE I am never ever getting one and if you would like a child friendly dog and a dog that is always caring I definitely suggest a golden retriever!

Their bite and strength makes them a hazard, nonetheless, as evidenced by the attacks they have been involved in.

5 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.
6 Alaskan Malamute The Alaskan Malamute is a large breed of domestic dog originally bred for hauling heavy freight because of their strength and endurance, and later a sled dog.
7 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.

Hate these dogs. They sometimes kill people.

Capable of killing a Dogo Argentino and German Shepherd at full power.

8 Boerboel
9 Bandog
10 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.

Pugs are demons in the human world. They eat hope and dreams and one look at their satanic eyes destroys your soul. They are the scariest creatures on this planet and other planets. These are not dogs. They are demons.

WHAT? NO! Pugs are not scary at all! I think their wrinkly face is super cute!

Pugs are the creepiest dogs in the world. I will kill every single pug!

The Contenders
11 Bullenbeisser
12 Chihuahua The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog and is named after the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. Chihuahuas come in a wide variety of sizes, head shapes, colors, and coat lengths. While they can sometimes be aggressive, Chihuahuas can also be lovable, especially if trained from birth or known from a young age.

If a PUG, or a BASSET HOUND is on this list, then the chihuahua has to be here. No, I like Chihuahuas, but look on Youtube for scary looking Chihuahua videos.

Chihuahuas are scary man. they are the devils of the dog world they will murder you in your sleep

13 Shih Tzu A shih tzu also known as the Chrysanthemum Dog, is a toy dog breed, weighing 10 - 12 pounds when full grown, with long silky hair.
