Top 10 Strongest Dog Breeds


The Top Ten

1 German Shepherd German Shepherd

I've had German Shepherds for years.They are super strong and fast. They are good with children and are very loyal and protective of their pack. German Shepherds are fearless! That's why they are police dogs. And the expression a man's best friend, comes from them. So if you want a strong dog who can do it all, get yourself a German Shepherd! BEST BREED ON EARTH!

They help policemen track down criminals and arrest them. German Shepherds are just the strongest and fastest dogs ever! - Goku02

Yes German Shepherd is strongest dog in the world

The Kangal, English Mastiff, Rottweiler, and Pitbull is stronger. Clearly nobody has studied on dog strength yet…

Not sure how you're judging strength, but from bite pressure to weight pulling, pits outclass bullmastiffs, even at half the body weight.

Did you know Bullmastiffs are stronger than Pit Bulls?

The bite pressure of a Pit is about 235 pounds of pressure. The Mastiff has about 552 pounds of pressure, more than the double of a pitbulls bite. Do your research before commenting and voting
