What don’t canines have to be liked? They’re loving, faithful, obedient and of course cute. Ample of reasons are there that make them the most preferable pets all over the world. Unfortunately, there are some odd cases; some dog breeds go against the flow and prove to be dangerous. Knowing about such breeds will be helpful.
Number One: The Brazilian Mastiff
The Brazilian Mastiff is also known as the Fila Brasileiro. This dog is a large working breed that hails from Brazil. It has extraordinary tracking abilities making itself a great hunter. But this big guy’s unpredictable temperament and aggressive tendencies have put it on the dangerous dog list. What’s interesting though is that the first year of a Brazilian Mastiffs life can make a huge difference like that of many dogs. If the puppy gets plenty of positive socialization with people and other dogs early, the chances of its being aggressive as it grows up decrease significantly.
They’re extremely loyal too which is a bit of a double-edged sword since it will attack people if it means protecting its owner and family. Lack of socialization, on the other hand, can have serious consequences and that’s why the Brazilian Mastiff has been officially banned in countries like Denmark, the UK, and Norway among others.
Number Two: The Czechoslovakian Wolf-Dog
These dogs are a mix of German Shepherd and Carpathian wolf. They’re actually, a relatively new dog breed. It was originally created for secret military operations for Czechoslovakia Special Forces in 1955. But it’s also been used throughout Europe and the United States for search & rescue, tracking, and haunting. Czechoslovakian wolf dog czar is very outgoing and brave. But since they’re part wolf they’re really unpredictable; in one situation they might react like a dog but in others like a wolf.
This explains their intense drive to attack prey which is where all the fuss is coming from. There have been many attacks by this wolf dog hybrid, especially on little kids since they are easy vulnerable prey. These days the Czechoslovakian wolf dog is prohibited in Norway.
Number Three: The Tosa Inu
Tosa Inu are massive dogs that are originated in Japan. They can weigh between 130 and 200 pounds and are considered a pretty rare breed kind of like sumo wrestlers. They were bred to be fighting dogs which explains why they’re so quiet. You see in Japanese dogfighting; the rules call for complete silence. They can also be pretty aggressive towards other dogs they deem intruders. This breed needs an authoritative owner who is firm and confident. Nonetheless, they’re great with their owner’s family and they get very protective over kids in the house. They do attack though it’s not a pretty sight when they do.
These dogs have extremely powerful jaws and teeth. One eight-year-old girl from Moscow was tragically killed by a Tosa in 2006. Since that’s far from the only case of Atossa killing or seriously maiming a person, this breed has been banned in the UK, Australia, Norway, Iceland, New Zealand, and many other countries.
Number Four: The American Bulldogs
American Bulldogs descend from the old English Bulldog. weight weighing between 60 and 120 pounds. These muscular dogs with their big square heads are as strong as they look. they usually have a confident and active temperament, building a tight bond with their owner. but their potential aggression can be a problem, which is why it’s highly recommended for American Bulldog owners to thoroughly socialize their new pups with other dogs and cats. As early and as frequently as possible to lower their risk of behavior issues later on.
American Bulldog attacks, unfortunately, aren’t that rare in August 2016 a three-year-old boy died of his injuries after one of these dogs viciously attacked him. A nine-year-old boy barely survived his attack on October 2017. Stories like these led Denmark and Singapore to legally ban this dog.
Number Five: The Pitbull Pitbull
Pitbull is sort of an overarching label since there are literally tons of mixes out like the American Pitbull Terrier and the American Bully and just like Tosa Eno’s. They were originally created as fighting dogs even though nowadays dogfighting is banned in most countries. pitbull is still being bred to fight to the death in illegal underground fights. Their severe aggression due to this horrible upbringing has put them on the doggie blacklist all over the world including in Miami and the UK and there are serious reasons for it.
According to a review released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2000 pit bull-type dogs have identified in around one-third of all dog-related fatalities over an 11-year period. But on a personal note, I have a pit bull mix named Riley who is the sweetest dog I’ve ever had like I said earlier everything about the dog revolves around the owners intent and training of the dog good training good behavior bad or no training well watch out.
Number Six: The Rottweiler
The Rottweiler is one of the oldest herdings breeds, these dogs are all about balance intelligence, protection and courage. according to the American Rottweiler Club, this dog isn’t for everybody because it requires a calm and stable pack leader. they need socialization training and plenty of challenges. Rottweilers are exceptional guard dogs a two-year-old wot Wyler was even recognized for his bravery by the UK’s RSPCA for protecting a woman from an attacker by leading his owner to the street and guarding the victim until the police arrived.
However, there are Rottweiler attack cases as well, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association Rottweilers were involved in 33 fatal attacks on people over a seven-year period. They’ve even been called the deadliest dog out there, because of these concerns this breed is banned in Poland, Romania, Portugal, and Ireland.
Number Seven: The Canary Mastiff
Canary Mastiffs were originally bred for herding livestock. Male dogs can reach a maximum weight of 160 pounds and females up to 154 pounds just like pretty much all the breeds on this list. These dogs are affectionate and loving with their owners and suspicious of strangers, however even this isn’t always the case. In August 2006 a 30-year-old California woman was killed by her own canary mastiff and april 2017 there was a similar case of a 40-year-old woman in Spain being attacked and killed by her own dog and those aren’t the only recorded attacks out there.
This breed has been identified for attacking pretty much anybody from children to grown men. The risk wasn’t worth it for Australia and New Zealand both of whom officially banned this dog breed.
