24 Kuvasz Kuvasz

Don't let there friendly appearance fool you! They don't look like the type of dog that would be a guard dog but they are! They also are not recamended for families with children.

My family owns one Kuvasz and one Akbash. They are both a pretty mellow breed indoors but need a lot of room to roam and a 6 foot high fence. they do better in the country and need a job to do in order to be happy. Ours keep the chickens, ducks and csts safe from raccoons and coyotes. They're stubborn, but sensitive and need gentle, consistent training.

25 Jack Russell Terrier Jack Russell Terrier The Jack Russell Terrier is a small terrier that has its origins in fox hunting. It is principally white-bodied and smooth, rough or broken-coated.

My daughter had one. He was the most protective dog I have ever been around and would bite anyone who came near me or my daughter.
