  1. This is a strange article. Doesn’t say WHY they are dangerous.Says the Huskie is…” Apart from being the world fourth most dangerous bred Huskies are very energetic and intelligent they have good characteristics and gentle temperament.” Bwahahhaa…Sounds VERY dangerous.
    Waste os Cyberspace.

  2. I only sen a button to say that I liked the article where is the button to report that I dont!! And where did you get your information please post sources and/or links!! According to the AKC a Pitbull should weigh in at 50 to 70 lbs!! http://www.akc.org/breeds/bull_terrier/index.cfm are you sure your not mixing this breed up with the countless other breeds that look like it for example the Dogo Argentina? http://www.pitbulllovers.com/american-pit-bull-terrier-myths.html There is a link to just one of the many sites you can find that help dispel some of the garbage you claim to be true!! Im sure you have the fact wrong on the other dogs as well!!

    Very disappointed

  3. I agree with Crisystar – where is the ‘don’t like’ button. This post just confirms the fact that anyone can present information as truth on the internet. If you actually did your research you would note a study presented in 2008 that confirmed that Dachshunds were voted as being the most aggressive dog, so in my books it would seem that this would have earned the title as most dangerous. What a joke! Oh, maybe this is a joke…Or, are have you just based your opinion on media reports over the years all of which have targeted shepherds, rotti’s, and most recently pit bulls. Oh, then this must be valid – haha.

  4. A Pit Bull Terrier is related to the American Staffordshire Bull Terrier, not the Bull Terrier as referenced by Crisystar above. While their normal weight range is 57-67 pounds, it is not uncommon to see heavier dogs. Unlike the UKC, the AKC does not recognize the Pit Bull Terrier. This article is really a poorly compiled collection of misinformation, and as such should be taken with a grain of salt.

  5. Nordic? Where is that? Alaskan Malamutes are Alaskan (duh). Huskies are not dangerous, that is unless you consider licking, playing and a sense of adventure as dangerous. I have done extensive reading on the latter breed. You can borrow my books on dog breeds.(P.S. your picture is of a Siberian Husky not an Alaskan Husky).

  6. Who ever wrote this based all their information of of dogs for dummies or something….none of these dogs would make it on my top five for most dangerous….lets start looking at and African Boerboel and then we can talk dangerous…

  7. Alaskan Malamutes are the 5th most dangerous breed of dog?!? Balderdash!!! Dangerous because they’re big goofs?

  8. Uhhh, what! Where are Dalmations in this? Folks might laugh at this, but I know they can be dangerous, and have been know to maul smaller dogs, and even human babies!

  9. Extremely bad information very badly researched , obviously from one that has a very shallow knowledge of dog breeds.
    Credibility rating; minus ten!!!!!

  10. How about Akbash,Komondor, Kuvasz, Abruzzese Bear dog,Great Pyrenees. Not that this is my top five but one of these Big White five should make this list.

  11. I agree and I stand corrected, I grab the wrong link…

    http://www.akc.org/breeds/staffordshire_bull_terrier/index.cfm

    And while its not uncommon to see heavier dogs the weight should be portioned to the body size.

    Why hasnt this article been taken down?

  12. ok, so lets use this authors methodologies to talk about the five most dangerous races……….

    yea, that would cause an absolute politically correct fiasco. why is this allowed to happen then? thanks to everyone who commented and wouldn’t let this article appear ‘valid’

    For an article about pit bulls that actually cites information, and does more than fear-monger and misinform…

    http://gomestic.com/pets/fighting-breedism-and-giving-good-pit-bulls-a-fighting-chance/

  13. I really hate how the media and people always targets the pit bulls and the Rottis, I blame the owners any dog can be aggressive if it is not rasied correctly. Majority of the time people dont do there research before they get a dog and all those 5 dogs above cant just be thrown in the backyard and hope for the best, they need to be trained and if people actually looked thought before they bought they would know this. How come there are so many responsiable dog owners out there and some really DUMB one too. They make it to easy these days to get dogs….. something needs to be done.

  14. GRAMMAR POLICE SAYS THIS ARTICLE IS AN, “EPIC FAIL.”

  15. i dont think german shepherds are dangerous dogs since i have got 3 did have 4 they hand reared 2 puppies from birth people just say that they are dangerous because they work for the police so all they see is them biting people but you need to find out more since they know the difference between work where their job is to protect people and put an end the baddies ways and then play were they are calm and gentle so they know the difference so some peopple should find out the difference between dangerous dogs and dogs that protect us.

  16. I am interested in learning why the writer cites these 5 breeds as being the \\\”most dangerous\\\”…where are your sources? How exactly did you come by this information? I own an Alaskan Malamute and I am very confident in assuring the writer that unless he/she is a squirrel or stay cat, my dog would pose them no threat. The description of the breed\\\’s friendliness and affection towards humans is accurate, which is an interesting contrast to the statement that they are \\\”dangerous\\\”…heads up…any dog without proper training is a risk. Also…your use of \\\”there\\\” in the title is incorrect. Check your facts and your grammar!

  17. THIS IS A LIE!!! THESE DOGS AREN’T DANGEROUS BECAUSE OF THEIR BREED! ANY DOG CAN BE DANGEROUS IF IT WAS TREATED WRONG!!!!! I’VE OWNED EVERY ONE OF THESE DOGS AT LEAST ONCE IN MY LIFE AND NEVER BEEN HURT.
    PLUS, IT NEVER LISTED WHERE YOU GOT YOUR INFO FROM. I CURRENTLY OWN A PIT WHO WAS RESCUED FROM AN ABUSIVE AND NEGLECTIVE HOME AND SHE’S NEVER HURT ME.

  18. Eric, the pit bulls are acually related to both staffordshire and bull terriors.
    I know this because I’ve worked with all three and researched it in breed books and such. They’re close cousins.
    And Marv, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again even the “Nicest breed ever” can be turned “evil” by just a handful of abused and mistreated dogs of a certain breed. You or someone else turns on them THEY turn on you. No matter what BREED. It can even be a MUTT.

    THANK YOU AUSSIE GIRL!!!

  19. I read all these comments,
    well i quit my decision to own a big dog ,
    its not for me, its for the people around me,
    i have heard that dogs are human friendly etc etc ..
    and now ,, OH oh

  20. PIT BULLS DO NOT CHOOSE TO BECOME DOG FIGHTING DOGS THEIR OWNERS GIVE THEM NO CHOICE ITS EITHER DO WHAT THEY SAY OR YOU DON’T LIVE! ITS NOT THEIR FAULT DUMB PEOPLE DECIDE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF LITTLE INNOCENT DOGS!

  21. ın my opınıon turkısh kangal ıs the best

  22. what about the worlds biggest dog the boston mastive?

  23. This is quite possibly the worst “dangerous dog” article I have ever seen. 110 pounds? Um no, a wellbred APBT doesn’t exceed 70. Check the UKC standard.

  24. Any dog can be aggresive when provocted. The degree of aggressiveness depends on the amount of gun powder that it consumes.

    It saddens me that people stereo type animals much like they do humans……

  25. I just put down my husky. He would have been 9 yrs. old in January. When I buoght him the papers said Siberian Husky, but he looked identical to the Alaskan Malamute & got up to 138 pounds. I put him down because he had been on seizure meds for 3 years, & I was just told he had diabetes. I loved this dog like a child. He was my walking companion & I felt safe to walk at night because he was huge & people were afraid of him. I suffer for his loss. He was so inteligent. He may have been one of the giant malamutes. I just know I miss him dreadfully & can’t believe I had to put my own love down.

  26. Also, I want to say that you have to respect a dog’s temperament. Don’t try to make him something he isn’t. Love him for what he is. I dearly loved & respected my husky. I have known 5 pound dogs meaner than my husky. I wish my husky could have lived out the rest of my life with me. They need interest in their lives and scheduled walks & things to look forward to because huskies are intelligent.

  27. you need to include that all of the dogs of this breed are not this tempermentla, as well as show both sides to the story of how pis are agressive when trained to be not that they are born this way, the reason they have the bad rap is because ppl buy them to fight not for a GREAT family pet. You neve hear of a common pit attacking someone its always a pit tat has a bad owner. And if they are so visious y do we not use them for police digs instad of greman shepards, also you only have large size dogs im sure more ppl get bitten by lap dogs than large dogs the only rason we dont hear about it is bacause they are so samll they dont really do damage.

  28. Well, the Pitbull is the most dangerous and aggressive…….They are born vicious attack dogs, but u can train them to not, but its rlly hard.Even as a puppy.

  29. A dog is Not Dangerous unless provoked. Also, Pittbulls ARE not naturally vicious. They are very sweet

  30. hi i love rotties i love them u know why coz they r cooooooooooool. if sm1 have a puppy plzzz let me know my number is 0333-5414243.
    usman malick
    thanks buddy

  31. i luv german shepherd very much

  32. this is the dumbest list i have ever seen! I have been around all of these types of dogs from many different owners. They all have been amazing dogs, that are well behaved and extremely gentle animals. I think that all dogs are subject to proper training, if they are neglected and mistreated then they will possibly exhibit hostile tempers. Even something as \”friendly\” as a Lab or Golden Retriever can turn on you! Please leave the pitbulls and Rotts alone! They can be the most perfect dog you have ever owned. They have a terrible reputation because of the torment their owners put them through, maybe its the owners fault and not the dogs.

  33. i want buy pit bulls .
    frm where can i buy this dog.

  34. Who ever wrote this is completely insane, pitbulls can be the sweetest dogs in the world. They are only mean or aggressive if they are trained to be. Otherwise, they are extremely sweet and gentle

  35. Who ever think all the dangerous dogs are the above mentioned has no idea of dangerous dogs.

    Dangerous dogs are all dogs with teeth and stupid owners that train the dogs as centinels.

    Most dangerous are chiguaguas and Rat Russells because of foul temperament.

    My Malamute could lick you to dead, or sit on you and flaten you like a pancake, but other than that he is gentel and quiet and loving and loves cats!!!!!!

  36. You are a complete idiot. Your description of a pit bull was far from the norm. The only problem I’ve ever had with my pit bull was she sat on me one morning because she wanted to go outside and chase squirrels. Stick with the facts, any dog will be aggressive if they are trained to be that way. I’m sure someone could start up a dachshund fighting ring if they really wanted to. Stop singling out pit bulls and get your head out of the dramatic news articles and look at the real facts before you post something like this.

  37. i love pitt bulls they are SO AMAZING AND KILLING PEOPLE COOLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. i love smow dogs they are so cute and they pertect me well my dog does any way and who ever put they like pitballs then then need to die because pitballs kill people and that is very moribal love you all people xxxx lol

  40. My Husky almost killed me… with kindness that is :)

  41. i have raised pitbulls for 12 years the are the most loyal family loving dogs i have been around an very smart. In my 12 years of dealing wit this breed i have never been attacked not once pitbulls are a good family dog that loves people a dog is only as smart as its owner makes them bad dogs are not born they are made so please people dont fear this breed you will miss out on a great family pet

    content making one wonder if the writer knows what s/he is talking about!

P.S. I WATCH SCOOBY DOO! I LOVE DOGS!

  48. pitbulls and rotweilers are both nice if u treat them right

  49. This isn’t a very reliant article considering all dogs aren’t born aggresive. Alos saying that German Shepards are aggresive is rubbish, if they were aggresive why would goverments world wide use them as rescue dogs?

  50. Stop talking about pitbull like this first of all pitbull is not a breed of dog it is only a name given to dogs used for fighting…. the picture you posted up their is a Staffordshire terrier , maximum weight of a so called pitbull is 65 pounds , and they are not agressive at all , HUMANS make them agressive.By the way USA uses pitbull for K9 Unit……so find you self a life and stop talking s h i t about type of dogs you dont even know

  51. This article is very inaccurate. Pitbulls aren’t dangerous, neither are Rotties. I have both and they’re more friendly than most Chiuauas I’ve seen.

  52. every dog is good,mean not dangerous .that all -how we handle it.im right aur rong?

  53. Um wow, I call BS. Its not the dogs its the owner and how they are raised. I personally have the sweetest dog ever and he just so happens to be a pit bull and wouldn’t hurt a fly…

  54. can u tel me why dont they mention labrador…
    and dashhounds are not dangerous, they are aggressive..,..
    they could have been dangerous if they had power to damage sumthing…..some large breed like mastiffs and kurdish kangal…
    are huge but not dangerous because they are not aggressive….
    rotties and pitbull are combination of aggressiveness and power to damage….they way u raise them is also considered……but there is a reason to raise them that way, coz they can be raised that ways……NOT HUSKIES FOR SURE….BUT
    PITBULLS & ROTTIES ARE MOST DANGEROUS

  55. Why, exactly, are these dogs so ‘dangerous?’ For example, the breed descriptions say things like ‘gentle temperaments.’ And American Pit Bull Terriers weigh a LOT less than what you mentioned. Full of nonsense.

  56. What the hack!!!i don know that pit bull is the most dangerous dog in the world!!i had one!!!!

  57. This is about the dumbest dog article I have ever read, and some of the dumbest commenters,the article and the commenters belong together,the author knows nothing about dogs,the Internet makes everybody a writer, but every writer needs an editor which the majority of Internet writer’s don’t have
    anybody can go from site to site stealing information, at least when you do that do it correctly,this article doesn’t qualify you for your fifteen minutes of fame sit down.

  58. Um..Siberian huskies originally originate from Serbia,Russia and were used for hunting deers(they ran freely),protecting owners and livestock from harm. Its true that they are the fourth most aggressive since they can be very aggressive and dangerous (since they are very active) and some have successfully been trained in Serbia as guard and protection dogs. And also Rottweilers have the most strongest bite force(Jaw pressure of 306 pounds) than a pitbull, and it is called the Iron Jaw since the Rottweiler has a very big skull which increases its bite force and jaw pressure, which is why a pitbull is no match for it (an it is the Rottweiler who usually wins)and it is no match for the Wolf-hybrid(husky or malamute mixed with wolf (has a bite force of 409 pounds) which I read in a newspaper article that killed 2 pitbulls easily that were trying to attack it as it was being walked with its owner.
    This is from a person who owns a purebreed male siberian husky(has been proffessionally trained as a guard and protection dog)and a large big-headed male rottweiler(also a protection and guard dog).:)

  59. what a load of crap! poor dog breed cops a bad rap coz thier owners are dickheads! how about we start euthanizing drunk drivers??? how many people do they kill a year!? my staffy xhusky is a gentle beautifull dog….SHE WAS BOUGHT UP WITH LOVE N ATTENTION! how about taking sum REAL action on the owners of these aggressive dogs! it is often the owner that is the aggressor, n the poor bloody dog that suffers the consequences!!!

  60. Whoever wrote that Siberian Huskies make great guard dogs and protectors really does not know much about the breed. It is possible a Husky might protect a family member from another dog or even a person under extreme circumstances but they are not really known as protectors and are terrible watchdogs for the most part. Huskies are highly independent. They are runners and will take off if given half a chance usually and that is why the dog pounds are full of them. They are no doubt beautiful dogs and I love them but the reality is that they would probably help a burglar into your home and show him where the stuff he wants is…lol. They are listed by some as dangerous for the simple reason that they have a high prey drive for other animals and therefore often will become confused and chase down a running child or crawling baby. Same with the Malamute, except a Malamute might make “somewhat” of a watchdog. If you want a good dog for protection there are many breeds that will do the job but German Shepherds are probably the best all around guard, watchdogs and protectors. Their bite is also more powerful than a Pit…over 400 pounds per square inch and second only to the Rottweiler. For all those talking about dog fighting, I am not into that but I have seen my share of fights and I learned from the experience of owning many types of dogs over the year that in every situation…just like with people…it all depends on the individual dog. I had a Doberman that was attacked by a Pitbull in a park. I had mine on a leash and the Pit was not. I let go just to protect myself in in a matter of only seconds my 120 Doberman destroyed and almost killed the Pit, who weighed about 65 pounds. This same Doberman was attacked my my next door neighbor’s German Shepherd when I was not home and one dog got into the other’s yard. After what neighbors told me was a 20 minute fight (before they were able to break it up) , the German Shepherd was too injured to continue and people managed to pull my Doberman off of him finally. They threw things at him, doused him with water, etc…and he would not stop fighting. Today, I have a 110 pound European bred black German Shepherd with pure wolf bred into his line twice. He was attacked while on leash when he was on 14 months old by a two pure bred Jindu (fighting) dogs…and while I was pulling him back on the leash and the other dogs were free, he still held his own against both of them. All this to say that I have seen supposed fighting dogs that were good fighters and others that were not, I grew up in the south where some big common curs were tough as nails and would fight it out with wolves in the woods at night….and hold their own. When all is said and done, it really just depends on the dog. I do not believe one breed of dogs is necessarily always tougher or a better fighter than another. I think it depends on the individual dog. Now that is not to say that some people do not pick certain breeds to train for fighting. The Pitbull has been made a patsy and victim by many for being a “fighting dog”. These dogs were bred to hold onto a bull by the nose while it was killed or slaughtered. It was never bred for the purpose of fighting other dogs and claiming to be “King of the Dogfighters” or “Toughest Dog”. I have been all over the world…owned many, many breeds of dogs…I have hunted with them in the wilds, as a special agent, I have had them with me in my vehicle in gang neighborhoods where there were trained fighting Pitbulls in yards, protecting crack houses and stashes and so forth…I have been attacked by these dogs and my German Shepherd was more than a match for them and has been able to drive them off or take them down and has yet to be on the losing end of a fight with any Pitbull to date. Does that mean there are not Pitts that could kill him? Of course not. But like I say, it all depends on the dog. My former Doberman was tough as nails. My next door neighbor liked mine and bought one just like it…and it was the biggest wimp you ever saw. So to put all this to rest….quit fighting dogs. Love your animal, treat him well and he or she will probably protect you with their life. I would also say this to all you “dog fighters” who keep talking about the “prey drive” of a pitbull. It is not always prey drive that wins a fight. Sometimes it is just sheer determination, desperation and the desire to protect. I would bet against most fighting dogs if they tried to attack me and my German Shepherd was anywhere close…that his desperation and determination to protect me…not to mention a prey drive he also has…would be more than enough to hold his own against another dog that tried to hurt me or one of my family members. Example…a Timber Wolf…having 3 times the bite power of any domestic dog, certainly more prey drive than a Pitbull allegedly has will usually, one on one, run from a fight with a larger dog unless either that dog is in its territory or the wolf is cornered and has no choice but to fight. Once it has to fight though, it will absolutely, in most cases, destroy any domestic dog including a Pit. However, again, I have seem it for myself and it all depends on the dog and circumstances of the fight. I have seen a German Shepherd attack, defend, best and run off a wolf when it sensed its owners were in danger.

For all those talking about dog fighting, I am not into that but I have seen my share of fights and I learned from the experience of owning many types of dogs over the year that in every situation…just like with people…it all depends on the individual dog. I had a Doberman that was attacked by a Pitbull in a park. I had mine on a leash and the Pit was not. I let go just to protect myself in in a matter of only seconds my 120 Doberman destroyed and almost killed the Pit, who weighed about 65 pounds. This same Doberman was attacked my my next door neighbor\\\’s German Shepherd when I was not home and one dog got into the other\\\’s yard. After what neighbors told me was a 20 minute fight (before they were able to break it up) , the German Shepherd was too injured to continue and people managed to pull my Doberman off of him finally. They threw things at him, doused him with water, etc…and he would not stop fighting. Today, I have a 110 pound European bred black German Shepherd with pure wolf bred into his line twice. He was attacked while on leash when he was on 14 months old by a two pure bred Jindu (fighting) dogs…and while I was pulling him back on the leash and the other dogs were free, he still held his own against both of them. All this to say that I have seen supposed fighting dogs that were good fighters and others that were not, I grew up in the south where some big common curs were tough as nails and would fight it out with wolves in the woods at night….and hold their own. When all is said and done, it really just depends on the dog. I do not believe one breed of dogs is necessarily always tougher or a better fighter than another. I think it depends on the individual dog. Now that is not to say that some people do not pick certain breeds to train for fighting. The Pitbull has been made a patsy and victim by many for being a \\\”fighting dog\\\”. These dogs were bred to hold onto a bull by the nose while it was killed or slaughtered. It was never bred for the purpose of fighting other dogs and claiming to be \\\”King of the Dogfighters\\\” or \\\”Toughest Dog\\\”. I have been all over the world…owned many, many breeds of dogs…I have hunted with them in the wilds, as a special agent, I have had them with me in my vehicle in gang neighborhoods where there were trained fighting Pitbulls in yards, protecting crack houses and stashes and so forth…I have been attacked by these dogs and my German Shepherd was more than a match for them and has been able to drive them off or take them down and has yet to be on the losing end of a fight with any Pitbull to date. Does that mean there are not Pitts that could kill him? Of course not. But like I say, it all depends on the dog. My former Doberman was tough as nails. My next door neighbor liked mine and bought one just like it…and it was the biggest wimp you ever saw. So to put all this to rest….quit fighting dogs. Love your animal, treat him well and he or she will probably protect you with their life. I would also say this to all you \\\”dog fighters\\\” who keep talking about the \\\”prey drive\\\” of a pitbull. It is not always prey drive that wins a fight. Sometimes it is just sheer determination, desperation and the desire to protect. I would bet against most fighting dogs if they tried to attack me and my German Shepherd was anywhere close…that his desperation and determination to protect me…not to mention a prey drive he also has…would be more than enough to hold his own against another dog that tried to hurt me or one of my family members. Example…a Timber Wolf…having 3 times the bite power of any domestic dog, certainly more prey drive than a Pitbull allegedly has will usually, one on one, run from a fight with a larger dog unless either that dog is in its territory or the wolf is cornered and has no choice but to fight. Once it has to fight though, it will absolutely, in most cases, destroy any domestic dog including a Pit. However, again, I have seem it for myself and it all depends on the dog and circumstances of the fight. I have seen a German Shepherd attack, defend, best and run off a wolf when it sensed its owners were in danger.

  63. Whoever wrote that Siberian Huskies make great guard dogs and protectors really does not know much about the breed. It is possible a Husky might protect a family member from another dog or even a person under extreme circumstances but they are not really known as protectors and are terrible watchdogs for the most part. Huskies are highly independent. They are runners and will take off if given half a chance usually and that is why the dog pounds are full of them. They are no doubt beautiful dogs and I love them but the reality is that they would probably help a burglar into your home and show him where the stuff he wants is…lol. They are listed by some as dangerous for the simple reason that they have a high prey drive for other animals and therefore often will become confused and chase down a running child or crawling baby. Same with the Malamute, except a Malamute might make \\\\\\\”somewhat\\\\\\\” of a watchdog.

    ”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””
    Mr arnold… these dogs are dangerous..period..no matter how friendly they are…u will always have to be careful…this article owner never said these dogs have sixth sense..and they want to be dangerous…its just that they are powerful and HAVE agressive instincts…thats why they are raised that ways by some dog fight lovers…and even if u raise a tiger with love and care..like circus people do..they will not bite anyone for no reason..does dat mean they are not dangerous…GUYS PLEASE UNDERSTAND….
    YOUR PETS WILL RARELY BITE…
    THEY could have MENTIONED any dog dangerous if they had power to damage sumthing…..some large breed like mastiffs and kurdish kangal…
    are huge but not dangerous because they are not aggressive….
    rotties and pitbull are combination of aggressiveness and power to damage….they way u raise them is also considered……but there is a reason to raise them that way, coz they can be raised that ways……
    PITBULLS & ROTTIES ARE MOST DANGEROUS

  67. i think they got some things wrong these are not he most dangerous maybe the most strongest but not dangerous ma cat more scary then ma pit. plus the most likey dog to bit you is your ancle bitters know there more dangerous then them

  68. i think they got some things wrong these are not he most dangerous maybe the most strongest but not dangerous ma cat more scary then ma pit. plus the most likey dog to bit you is your ancle bitters know there more dangerous then them

  69. What the…i’ve seen magpies more scary than a siberian husky.
    What mental giant wrote this doo doo.
    Wow.

  70. wow who wrote this didn’t even proof read their article. have a look, i quote.

    “Apart from being the world fourth most dangerous bred Huskies are very energetic and intelligent they have good characteristics and gentle temperament”

    4th most dangerous with a gentle temperament? wow makes a lot of sense.

    Outstanding garbage of an article.

  71. …research i doubt it

  72. serbia, russia…why don’t you try siberia.

  73. I have a dachshund and he is the most gentle and affectioante dog I have ever met. Where ever you heard that imformation, that is kinds dumb.

  74. I find German Sheperds should not be on the list, in fact they are one of the most friendly dog breed. Yes, they work for the police, but that has nothing to do with it personal life. In fact police dogs should be the nicest because they stop crime not cause crime.

    If you agree say this:

    Jenna-Maria I totally agree with you.

    Bye

  75. No, I disagree with Jenna Maria and to know why..read my comment above comment of urs(dat is 8th from bottom)
    my name is DEV..

  76. Hi Jenna. I agree with you that German Shepherd’s have taken a bad rap as a “dangerous dog”. I am a detective and use a German Shepherd to work with me, as I already wrote above. Most GSD are great dogs and IF RAISED FROM A PUPPY IN A FAMILY ENVIRONMENT, they are great house and family dogs. However, world-wide these dogs are the number one breed used my police forces and the military all over the world. They are trained to bite and use controlled aggression in certain situations because they have a certain instinct and prey drive for this work. Because of this, such a dog, in the wrong hands can be very dangerous. GSD dogs are extremely intelligent. They often will test you to see if they can control you. You generally have to be a strong ALPHA figure like the head in a wolf pack in order to control these dogs. Having said this, however, if you do what I just said and also put your GSD through obedience courses, get a puppy or adult dog used to being around kids…then I think you are pretty safe. GSDs often tend to gravitate more to one family member than everyone….they do pick favorites UNLESS they are acclimated to everyone in the family and strangers too when they are puppies and as they grow up. These are big dogs and make no mistake about it, they have a strong bite and can be very aggressive but they also can be wonderful pets and are the most loyal dog you will ever find. The TV shows and movies are full of GSD “hero” dogs. To the person that asked whether a pitbull or pitbull/boxer mix is a good family and protection dog, let me say this: I grew up with Boxers and have owned about 5 of them over the years since I was a child. They are GREAT family dogs and usually excellent around kids of all ages and very tolerant to rough handling. So I like the PUREBRED BOXER as a family pet and protector. I also think Pitbulls can be wonderful dogs if you get one that has been socialized at a young age with people, kids and other pets. Many people also deliberately breed Pits and Boxers together. Temperament in these situations really depend on the temperament of the parents and also again, how the dog was socialized as a young puppy. Regarding Siberians, they make great pets and are generally gentle dogs. They are terrible watch dogs, guard dogs and protectors….so if that is what you are looking for, forget the Siberian. But they are great companions of jogging, sledding, backpacking and just doing things with. Again, if used to kids and socialized with them as puppies, they are fine. But if you get an adult dog that is not used to small kids, watch the interactions very carefully, as with any dog in similar circumstances. For those ranking the dogs as “most dangerous”, I think they are basing this on bite statistics. This might be a little unfair because the more popular the breed, the more increases in bites. In other words, if I have 12 Pitbulls on a city block and only 2 Labradors, he odds are that there may be more Pitbull bites, if anyone is bitten, than Labrador bites. So as you can see, evaluating by these standards could be a little misleading. Some of the dogs named on this list are extremely more popular than many other breeds that may generally have a worse temperament and therefore the more popular dogs make the lost as the top 10. And because there are so many of some of these breeds out there in the population then, yes, it is probably true that more people are bitten by them.

  77. I do not fight dogs but I know a lot about Huskies and probably as enough about Rottweilers to answer the question about which dog would win if they fought. My answer is that it simply depends on the dog first. Like I said, some dogs…no matter what the breed…are lovers and not fighters. Others will fight. When you ask about Huskies, keep in mind that there are many types of Huskies. The Samoyed may only weigh about 30 or 40 pounds and probably is no match for a Rotty. Then you have other types like the Siberian, Malamute, Alaskan Husky and so forth. The Malamute will weigh as much and often more than a Rotty. So it just depends on each dog. More than likely the Rotty will have the stronger bite. But the Husky will probably be quicker. So who knows? And why would anyone want to fight them anyway? I guess curiosity asks “which dog would win” but when you own any dog and see that they have feelings, hurt, depression, fear, love, etc….just like we do, I would hope you would love your dog as much as it probably loves you, be protective of your dog and not put it in a situation where pain is inflicted on it…or it hurts another animal and as a result has to be destroyed. If you REALLY love your dog, then you will protect it from fights, remembering that it is depending on you for love, protection, food and shelter…along with the parental common sense to make the right decisions for your dog….decisions that it may not be able to make if it is forced to fight.

  78. Huskeys love everyone so they wont make a good guard dog!!

  79. Huskes love everyone so they wont make a good guard dog!!

  80. Huskes love everyone so they wont make a good guard dog!!

  81. Real dog people laugh at folks who claim ” my dog killed a pit bull at the park ” . Dobermans are fine guard dogs and pretty good pets but they dont stand a chance against a real apbt of 50 lbs or more.. every dog u see that has some bulldog in him is not a pit bull. Old dog fighters laugh at the silly info that u folks put on here . there is no dog on earth and this includes the tosa , kangal , caucasian, bully kutta , that can defeat the apbt in the pit… This has been tried in Japan and in Pakistan… The only way the tosa can win is by japanese rules that demands that the dogs fight silently .. the pit bull whines and yelps in joy when he is fighting and gets disqualified by their rules but by cajun rules where they allow them to fight until one dog quits or is killed the apbt beats the tosa everytime and trust me dobes and german shepherds cannot compete…

  82. cheerz…… right dude…

  83. sounds like a 6 year old wrote this. ANY dog raised and trained correctly will be a GOOD dog no matter the breed.

  84. To APBT man, Garry. I read your post and it reflects pretty much what most Pitbull owners that breed for fighting will say. You have to read my post though. I do not fight dogs but as a Special Agent of over 30 years have broken up enough fighting rings to know what is and what is not a trained APBT used for pit fighting. I will again say…and most experienced owners of any breed that has unfortunately fought them will admit that each dog is different. I write from knowledge and experience. I have broken up fighting rings in South Central L.A. where I saw gangs use weaker adult German Shepherds and puppies from the pound as “bait dogs”. Yet, I have also broken up rings where my own 120 Shepherd intercepted a fully trained pit fighting APBT and also APBT used to guard crack houses and took them on several occasions right to the dirt, had these APBT by the neck, tore into the neck and would have mangled them if I had not pulled him off and then dealt with the APBT. IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE DOG. I am just being honest. And as K9 owners and handlers the last thing we want to do is get our dogs….who have had very expensive breeding and training….bitten and injured by another dog. But sometimes it happens. This stuff about “my dog is tougher than your dog” is childish. Its like when I was a kid and kids would say, “My daddy can beat up your daddy.” It is childish and stupid. And what we are talking about here, in case you forgot the subject, is which dogs ought to be on the 10 most dangerous list and why or why not. Obviously people like yourself that claim to fight dogs have no TRUE KNOWLEDGE of the breed anyway, except perhaps to the training and fighting aspect or they would understand them and realize that the APBT, let alone and raised normally, is a very lovable, generally docile dog and has feelings and emotions like all other dog breeds do. I do not mean to be rude but I would have to say that you are missing out on the joy of dog ownership and the loyalty that these and many other breeds have and the love they have to give if you are just seeing one side of them by fighting them. What I wrote in my two articles above is indisputable and accurate fact. And your logic makes no sense either. How is a dog that weighs 50 pounds and has less of a bite per pound and square inch going to dominate a dog that weighs 120 pounds, in excellent shape (as our Schutzhund dogs are) , with just as high or higher prey drive than a pit trained APBT and a bite almost twice as powerful….a proven fact? Also, if you know anything about APBT’s bite and jaw, they are designed to hold and not to tear mainly. Of course any dog when it bites can eventually tear skin. I am not saying an APBT cannot. I have seen the damage they can do to one another. But a German Shepherd’s bite is different and designed to rip and tear….to do absolutely incredible and horrendous damage if ti wants to. Its skull and jaw formation…right to the teeth and positions are virtually identical to that of a Timber Wolf. You can go online and see the comparisons. No one is saying an APBT cannot fight or dominate other breeds as a whole. That is not the issue. Some breeds, by nature are more dog aggressive and have a higher prey drive than others. But in most breeds there is always going to be a difference between some dogs over others in their breed. I have seen Pits that are wimps. I have seen Pits trained for fighting that have been in fights that may fight but are terrible at it and consequently they are destroyed or discarded….just like I see some guys in bars and other places that will fight at the drop of a hat but get their butts kicked over and over again. Just because a dog or person is trained to fight or prone to fight does not mean he is that tough. Just watch any MMA or boxing match on any given night. You see trained fighters get KO’d in the first round all the time. So just because an APBT is “trained” to pit fight really does not mean a heck of a lot to me. It only tells me he will probably fight. It does not tell me he will win. :-) Regards. Mischa Safdie’

This stuff about \\\\\\\”my dog is tougher than your dog\\\\\\\” is childish. Its like when I was a kid and kids would say, \\\\\\\”My daddy can beat up your daddy.\\\\\\\” It is childish and stupid. And what we are talking about here, in case you forgot the subject, is which dogs ought to be on the 10 most dangerous list and why or why not. Obviously people like yourself that claim to fight dogs have no TRUE KNOWLEDGE of the breed anyway, except perhaps to the training and fighting aspect or they would understand them and realize that the APBT, let alone and raised normally, is a very lovable, generally docile dog and has feelings and emotions like all other dog breeds do. I do not mean to be rude but I would have to say that you are missing out on the joy of dog ownership and the loyalty that these and many other breeds have and the love they have to give if you are just seeing one side of them by fighting them. What I wrote in my two articles above is indisputable and accurate fact. And your logic makes no sense either. How is a dog that weighs 50 pounds and has less of a bite per pound and square inch going to dominate a dog that weighs 120 pounds, in excellent shape (as our Schutzhund dogs are) , with just as high or higher prey drive than a pit trained APBT and a bite almost twice as powerful….a proven fact? Also, if you know anything about APBT\\\\\\\’s bite and jaw, they are designed to hold and not to tear mainly. Of course any dog when it bites can eventually tear skin. I am not saying an APBT cannot. I have seen the damage they can do to one another. But a German Shepherd\\\\\\\’s bite is different and designed to rip and tear….to do absolutely incredible and horrendous damage if ti wants to. Its skull and jaw formation…right to the teeth and positions are virtually identical to that of a Timber Wolf. You can go online and see the comparisons. No one is saying an APBT cannot fight or dominate other breeds as a whole. That is not the issue. Some breeds, by nature are more dog aggressive and have a higher prey drive than others. But in most breeds there is always going to be a difference between some dogs over others in their breed. I have seen Pits that are wimps. I have seen Pits trained for fighting that have been in fights that may fight but are terrible at it and consequently they are destroyed or discarded….just like I see some guys in bars and other places that will fight at the drop of a hat but get their butts kicked over and over again. Just because a dog or person is trained to fight or prone to fight does not mean he is that tough. Just watch any MMA or boxing match on any given night. You see trained fighters get KO\\\\\\\’d in the first round all the time. So just because an APBT is \\\\\\\”trained\\\\\\\” to pit fight really does not mean a heck of a lot to me. It only tells me he will probably fight. It does not tell me he will win. :-) Regards. Mischa Safdie\\\\\\\’

  88. To APBT man, Garry. I read your post and it reflects pretty much what most Pitbull owners that breed for fighting will say. You have to read my post though. I do not fight dogs but as a Special Agent of over 30 years have broken up enough fighting rings to know what is and what is not a trained APBT used for pit fighting. I will again say…and most experienced owners of any breed that has unfortunately fought them will admit that each dog is different. I write from knowledge and experience. I have broken up fighting rings in South Central L.A. where I saw gangs use weaker adult German Shepherds and puppies from the pound as BAIT DOGS. Yet, I have also broken up rings where my own 120 Shepherd intercepted a fully trained pit fighting APBT and also APBT used to guard crack houses and took them on several occasions right to the dirt, had these APBT by the neck, tore into the neck and would have mangled them if I had not pulled him off and then dealt with the APBT.

  93. i disagree. the pit bull breed itself originated in Europe, when they bred bulldogs with terriors and generated a energetic, strong, dog that they trained to fight in \”pits\”, thus the name PIT BULL TERRIOR. i personally own five of them now and none of the five have shown agressiveness toward any ppl or other animals. and have raised all five from puppies. so to say that they have to be trained not to be agressive is WRONG. they simply have to be well taken care of and NOT taught to be fighters. they are lovable dogs that need a lot of attention just like any other breed.

  94. I agree with your post, Shawn. Pits have taken a bad rap and they are some of the most lovable dogs I have seen. I agree. The ones that are aggressive are usually raised that way…just as any dog can be bred and raised to fight.

  95. Shawn, I also miscommunicated what I intended to say when I said that Pits are not bred for fighting other dogs. Of course, today they are. But the original intent was for Bull baiting….to grab a bull and hold on. The reason they are called “Pit bulls” is because the bull baiting became a sort of sport and was done in a pit. Eventually the dogs started being bred by dog-fighters to fight one another and other breeds for prize money. What made the Pit a preferred fighter was NOT that it had a “lock jaw”…which is a myth and totally untrue…and it had nothing to do with the power of its bite…which is inferior to several breeds of dogs. It also was not its high degree of prey drive. Prey drive in a Pit has to be taught to it for purposes of fighting and that is why they use bait dogs and all types of things to actually teach and stimulate prey drive. A German Shepherd and most Husky breeds of Spitz breeds all have higher prey drive than a Pit. So why do people fight them? Because the two things they have is tremendous endurance and the stubbornness of all bully breeds, including Boxers to keep fighting and not quit, even when injured. They have a high pain tolerance and will simply outlast many opponents with superior fighting skills and abilities. I write the fighting part of this article not so much to address you, Shawn, because you seem to have a very good perspective about the breed but to address others who seem to want to fight them. Again, I think your take in your short article is absolutely correct in the fact that these dogs are very lovable by nature and they make wonderful pets. I have seen over and over again Pits that had great etiquette and self-control around other dogs, were playful with other dogs and just fun clowns that also were safe with kids. It is sad they have such a bad rap because a few idiots with actually dogs they abused in order to make them fighters could not keep them locked up and they ended up terrorizing a neighborhood and hurting someone or their pet.

  96. if ya dont like dont press a button that would waist time and the poeple out there correcting him shutup your probles waek and dont know nothing but thet me tell you those dogs are not the strongest because i have a dog acdemy and the most strongest are german sheperd,golden reciever,great dane and hunting basid hounds and i was in the army got shot 4 times so i know what im talking about i ranked to a major and i know

  97. there nice because you raised them from a puppy

  98. german sheperds killed lots of peeps for me i was in the army

  99. great information.

  100. I have known of the pitbull’s reputation. The first three dogs though appear cute and friendly can be devastative – thanks for the warning and reminder.

  101. what a total load of bollocks!

    ALASKAN Malamutes are from Alaska and SIBERIAN huskies are from Siberia!. There is no such breeds as an Alaskan husky, that term is used to describe cross breeds that are bread specifically for work ability.

    You are the definition of a cretin!

  102. I have had pit bulls all of my life and I am now 19 years old. My parents also have had them with my 6 year old little sister and my 4 year old littler brother. Pit Bulls are very protective of their owners but that does not mean that everyone that walks in the front door they attack. Also pit bulls listen to their owners very well. So if the owner wants to have their dog become mean then its going to be mean no matter what breed it is. Pit bulls get a very bad rap because they are the dogs used in dog fights so they get a horrible name from that. But for anyone who has been around a pit bull anywhere can see that they are kind loving dogs. It is that the dog that is dangerous it is the owner who trains them that way. The owner in all cases is the one to blame if the dog becomes dangerous or not. Pit bull puppies start out the same as a Golden Retriever and from the owner training it becomes a good or bad dog.

  103. Well, after I posted some accurate comments that reposted themselves for some reason related to computer glitches, I read some of the comments afterwards. Most writing were illiterate and did not even state who they were responding to. One girl, “Breann” posted a good article. Another claiming to be “pissedoffreader” posted a partially inaccurate article, stating there is no such thing as an Alaskan Husky. Unfortunately this writer is wrong. Yes, Alaskan Malamutes are believed to originate from Alaska…although there is a question even to that. Siberian Huskies came from Siberia. I have been to Alaska many times and lived among the Indians there. They have their own breed of sled dogs that are neither Siberians or Malamutes. These dogs are a distinct Husky breed that actually is a combination of several northern dogs that were ver often and deliberately cross-bred with wolves. These dogs are referred to as Alaskan Huskies in other places as “American Huskies” and do not include the Siberian or the Malamute. There are many types of sled dogs used in Alaska and the Arctic and Antarctic that are mixtures of pretty much many Husky or Spitz breeds. I have even seen German Shepherds and other breeds do very well as sled dogs. I do not believe the AKC recognizes any breed called an “Alaskan Husky” but then, the AKC did not recognize the Shiloh Shepherd until recently and may still not, they do not recognize any white German Shepherds and do not recognize the Pitbull Terrier to my knowledge. So without insulting the writer, I would like to just point this out. Regarding the Pitbull, anyone who knows anything about these dogs at all knows they are very sweet dogs unless, like any other dog, they are bred and trained to specifically fight other dogs and attack people…usually by uninformed and classless owners. I have already written alot on all of this stuff so I will not bother to repeat it. I would say, however, that these websites are here so everyone can exercise their rights to free speech. You may choose to disagree with another’s post but have some class and act half-educated if you can. Those who post here, using foul language and calling anyone who does not agree with them all types of names generally displays to everyone else what their education level probably is and the fact that if they have to express themselves in that manner, they, besides being uneducated, are probably insecure, know little about what they are talking about anyway and should for all intent and purpose be ignored. Consider this. There are actually sincere people on this site looking for answers, doing honest research into a breed of dog they may be interested in, some may even be kids with pets they are trying to write about..whether they have lots of knowledge or not…and all should be treated kindly and respectfully. For those with foul mouths and typing skills to match, you should consider others and show a little class yourself. There is a saying that it is better to say nothing and in so doing, not reveal you are a fool as opposed to saying something and then letting everyone know for sure that you are one. Think about it. :-)

  104. Major, but You can’t spell nor write you dumb retard

  105. You are an idiot whoever wrote this. Huskies are extremely gentle and kind. Your picture is not even of a malamute by the way, that’s a Husky dumbass.

  106. What absolute crap. I take in & rescue any and every breed of dog
    out there and none of them are born \’dangerous\’ or bad. It\’s the twisted cruel people they get raised by that makes them bad or \’dangerous\’ and every rescue dog I\’ve ever had after some rehab has turned out to be perfect pets when treated right.
    Get your facts straight before you give any animal a bad rap !!!!

  107. well i kept a pit bulls,german shepards & rots at difference period .viciousness of dogs highly depends on genetic and style of the breeder. however,my rots have proved to be more dangerious on several occasion.

  108. This is the most false information i ever read and only proves that the internet is NOT the safest form of information unless you are directly linked to experts who deal in the area of interest,the Alaskan Malamute and the Husky are a far cry from the most dangerous dogs in the world,in fact Alaskan Malamute owners are advised not to depend on the dogs as gaurd dogs because of their gentle nature with humans,the dog is a danger to other animals only because it considers other animals (including other dogs) prey,these people really need to expand on the information they have provided on this site it is idiotic and completely misleading.

  109. what a stupid story….did someone actually get paid for this nonsense??

  110. Oliphant scored a 110 on the ASVAB? Doubtful. I’m betting he’s a Navy Seal too.
    Yes this article is horse wash. I can see it deciding them by strength, but it lists no cons to match the pros. Confusing.

  111. Who ever wrote this is a moron they know nothing about the pitbull and all of there facts are wrong. I am a dog trainer and an expert on all breeds of Pitbulls. It is sad how they have such a bad rep because of what stupid people do to them. Pitbulls are according to the AKC one of the best family dogs you can have especially if you have children. They make poor gaurd dogs because they love everyone. People should really do thier research before they place a lable on a breed, dont just believe what the news tells you, they get paid to get your attention.

  112. I don’t really get this article. First of all, you do NOT describe how you came to think these breeds are the most dangerous. Also, I just did a 3 paper research report on pit bills, and they have been proven in many tests to NOT be the most dangerous breed. I think you wrote this article based on ‘popular beliefs’ and not actual facts. You should do a little more research before you bad mouth an animal that doesn’t deserve it.

  113. We have a Husky

  114. This dog expert forgot the Cihuahua

  115. This article is totally BS and not backed up with any research or proof.

  116. i wish this article wasn’t set up as if it was written by a 9th grade english student.
    there are facts in this article that are true, but the presentation of those facts isn’t very strong

  117. where in the world did you get your information? also you NEVER even stated WHY they were dangerous. We have owned a pitbull/rotwieller, yes, she was very strong, but a loving, playfull, energetic good family pet. We also have an English Pitbull, Kia who is downright lloving and sweet. She sits on our lap like a kitten- even tho she weighs 38 pound, full grown. So your top 5 worst/dangerous dogs is full of misguided dillusional opinions- just your own at that.

  118. Huskies are definitely not the fourth most dangerous breed in the world. They are big but they are not harmful at all…they shy away from fight. I should know, ihave one

  119. I Love Dogs But When Ever Im Near Them I Get Frightened And Jump And Somedogs Are Soo Sweet Like My Grans Dogs Wesley And Luchi..!!!!

  120. you got that right

  121. I have never heard such nonsense! All dogs have teeth, and any dog can bite. I have seen small dogs that would take your face off if you got too close to them and I have watched a 16 month old baby sit in a food bowl and hand feed a pitt bull who very gently took each morsel of food from the baby. It’s people like you who are responsible for the larger breeds of dog being shot on site by law enforcement. The pitt bull that was hand fed by the baby was shot and killed 3 months ago when law enforcement came to the house simply because he was barking at the officers and he was a pitt bull. Shame on you!

  122. This is the most uneducated, unresearched piece of garbage I have read in ages. Nothing but myths, incorrect assumptions, and generalizations. Whoever wrote this needs to actually read and learn about these breeds before they spout off again.

  123. los animales como los perro si los tratas con amor te dan amor, si los tratas con respeto y les ensenas tus reglas con carino, les das las atanciones que merecen ( comidas en tiempo, bebidas, vitaminas, medicina, descanso y sobre todo recreacion pues ellos tambien sufren de estres ) no tendran motivo para hacerle dano y seran una buena compania y proteccion. Ahora bien si no tienes tiempo ni suficiente amor y paciencia para CUIDAR o hacerte cargo a otro ser vivo como un perrito NO LO COMPRES por favor evita ser victima de un ser que puede perder la razon por tener un dueno IGNORANTE en el aspecto de como cuidar correctamente a otro animal….

  124. where do you get your information.
    i have had 4 of these 5 breeds and not a single one of them was vicious.
    i think the old addage applies here. there are no bad dogs just bad owners.

  125. where on earth did you get the FACTS for this?? Because they aren’t facts. This is total crap. It needs to be deleted. Huskies 4th dangerous dog??? ummm yeah ok whatever.

  126. This is complete and utter nonsense – seriously mate, get your facts straight, and furthermore, you’re contradicting yourself within the same article!

  127. ATTENTION GUYS
    ”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””
    These dogs are dangerous..period..no matter how friendly they are…u will always have to be careful…this article owner never said these dogs have sixth sense..and they want to be dangerous…its just that they are powerful and HAVE agressive instincts…thats why they are raised that ways by some dog fight lovers…and even if u raise a tiger with love and care..like circus people do..they will not bite anyone for no reason..does dat mean they are not dangerous…GUYS PLEASE UNDERSTAND….
    YOUR PETS WILL RARELY BITE…
    THEY could have MENTIONED any dog dangerous if they had power to damage sumthing…..some large breed like mastiffs and kurdish kangal…
    are huge but not dangerous because they are not aggressive….
    rotties and pitbull are combination of aggressiveness and power to damage….they way u raise them is also considered……but there is a reason to raise them that way, coz they can be raised that ways……
    PITBULLS & ROTTIES ARE MOST DANGEROUS

  128. This is ridiculous. No certain breed is dangerous. This is like saying Blacks are more dangerous then Whites. (I’m not racist nor biased,) I’ve been attacked by a Chihuahua but never by a APBT or any other breed on that list.

  129. The Pitbull and the Rottie can be dangerous if not handled properly, they both dont like strangers. To the owners its a different story – but never piss off these buggers. to add to it the Presa Canario is another dog not to be messed around with, they were originally bred to guard and fight with cattle, an attack by this dog has been described as hopeless for the victim. They are a guardian breed with man-stopping ability, incredible power and a complete lack of fear, however they
    are very loving to their owners , but are resulted in various deaths at the same time. I see many of you are talking from an owners point of view. — get out of the box and see the other side as well. I own 2 big breed dogs as well, so i know what im talking about. Master and Dog have a different bond, which Dog and stranger do not have. This is the point which has always to be remembered.

  130. ha.. what a loser and a waste of my time. this is one of the many articals that helps mess up the rep of the american pitbull terrior.
    for 1, there not called pitbulls, its APBT.
    2ed of all, everyones right. your information is all wrong.
    if you knew anything you would know that APBT is a very friendly dog breed, & is never a good gaurd dog. there too people friendly. the only problom is bad people, that train them to be mean and aggresive fighting dogs. read akc.ukc

  131. This cant be true. My opinion PitBulls are definatly not the most dangerous dogs. I own a PitBull and get is the most friendlyist dog. He is more frendly than my Lab.

  132. Okay, everyone who complained about this article is an idiot. Really. This is the most tongue in cheek article I’ve ever read. I was laughing like crazy. The point (and there was one, really) is that these dogs are often accused of being dangerous. That is why every description said “Apart from being the world’s [blank] most dangerous dog, [blank[ are..” and then goes on to describe the great qualities of the dogs.

    The fact that nobody caught that makes me wonder about all of you. Really.

  133. this is a bunch of crap..all of these breeds can be sweet dogs arent dangerous unless they were raised poorly and/or mistreated by bad owners…i have a siberian husky he is great w/kids ..other animals ..sweetest dog ever..he can be stubborn and destructive at times but the good out weights the bad..i also have a german shepard/rottweiller mix..he is the smartest dog ever sometimes i think he is human..we most loyal..sweet dog and very protective of his family..this breed though u definetly need to socialize w/other dogs and kids from a young age..he wasnt the type to let anyone touch him he’d has to smell you first..he is 13 yrs old now and still sweet as ever

  134. All of these dogs have been owend by one person or another who will tell you its the raising of the animal that makes all the difference in the world. Yea, they are big and stong, but they must be taught to attack!!!! It even says so in the above statement!!!!!

  135. U forgot about the doberman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.Those information’s
    were badly researched

  136. You are an idiot. Period.

  137. i imagine this was based on reported dog attacks over a time period. we have had shepherds for 25 years and while they are very friendly if we give the go ahead , i wouldnt want to be the person who jumps out of a bush at night or behaves in a threatening manner when im walking them. and people proberly dont report attacks by jack russels etc even though they can be far nastier than most big dogs . also they may be talking of damage done in an attack…these larger breeds can have huge jaw pressure and will do more damage in one snap than a labrador would do if it chewed your arm all day

  138. I’ve owned three Siberian Huskies/Husky mixes and a German Shepherd during my life time. I can attest that the dogs I’ve had were ‘big babies’. The Sibe I have now, I’m training as my assistance dog. They are highly intelligent, very energetic and as others have said here, they are not dangerous. The only dangerous dog is one that’s not be handled properly by their owner.

    This site only serves to promote ill informed stereotypes that often cause mistreatment of specific breeds at the hands of ignorant owners.

  139. This is a stupid article. No explanation of why they are dangerous. Degrading the breeds for no reason. Only once does it mention that if raised correctly, the dog wouldn’t make this list. All of these breeds, if raised correctly, are no dangerous than any other breed. And vice versa for the so called “non violent” breeds. You can raise a labrador or golden retriever to be a vicious attack dog. I see no point in this article, besides defaming these beautiful breeds.

  140. Based on what ?

  141. The first thing I thought was exactly what the first commenter said. These breeds may have the potential to cause harm, but the author isn’t saying anything about why or how they are dangerous.

    Huskies may seem dangerous when considering their strength, intelligence, and pointy pointy teeth, but that doesn’t make them the 4th most dangerous in the world. There’s a big difference between ability to cause harm and being dangerous.

    My Siberian has the ability to cause great harm on someone, but that doesn’t make him dangerous. It’s the personality, traits, characteristics and most importantly owner that makes a dog dangerous.

    This article just seems like fear mongering.

    end of rant

  142. I stopped reading after the 1st line. I’ve had all these dogs and they were the biggest most gentle babies, extremely loyal canines. And if you look at “actual cases”, statistics have calculated that in fact small lap dogs have drawn far more blood than any other breed. Probably because of their fear, being small makes them feel more afraid and threatened by anything that crosses their path. That just proves, it’s not the breed, it’s the owner…. To anyone that gets any dog, TAKE CARE OF YOUR DOG AND TRAIN THEM PROPERLY, or don’t get one at all.

  143. This information was stolen from an article called the Terrible Ten or something like that. It is technically true and there are 5 other dogs they put on the list but its not that the dogs are just ‘dangerous’ its that they are capable of being dangerous based on ‘prey drive’ ’size’ ‘power’ et cetera. Even in the piece it is stolen from this is debatable but realistically it does make sense.

  144. I think that the german shepherds are a most dangerous dog and also great dane. One time a man tried to come inside my house but my both dogs had saw him and the man tried to ran back, but my both dogs run behind them and catch that man and the dogs bit him and the man was dead there.

  145. Wow what a story.

  146. my minature schounzer took down a huskie

  147. wow it means dat i hav worlds second dangerous dog …..!!

  148. I THINK GERMAN SHEPHERD is a best dog …
    because this dog is smart , strong , wild , and good in all trainings

    right?? :D

  149. This is absolutely ridiculous. You do not have ANY reasoning behind any of these dogs being dangerous besides maybe the common knowledge that they have been heard of to attack people. But in all honesty, lots of breeds attack people, the big ones get the bad rap. Maybe try spelling “description” right and people would take you seriously. There are nothing but angry comments here because these people know these are good dogs. I’ve always had shepherds, they are GREAT pets.

  150. Horribly uninformative is this article. In what world are you living in where a pitbull weighs 110 Ibs. Stupid stupid people. The american pitbull terrier is to weigh 30-65 Ibs anything over 70 Ibs is obese or an american bully(which is exactly what breed they have pictured here). Anyone who believes what this numb skull has written is just as clueless and brain washed as he. Do some research people…type in heritage of the american pitbull terrier, its that easy to educate yourselves. The truth will set you free…or in this case it will set the apbt free.

  151. You have know idea what your talking about. If your uneducated or a little kid you need not comment. The apbt is medium sized athletic working breed. They are to weigh 30-65 Ibs anything over 70 Ibs is obese or an american bully. They are by far the most versitile breed alive today, excelling at what ever task is ask of them. They have a love for people that is unmatched. I have an apbt female shes 2 and half and weighs 52 Ibs. she is a prime example of her breed. Socializing the breed with people is a snap they have an infinity for them naturally. When it comes to other dogs the breed as a whole can be combative, just comes with the terrier genes. I socialized mine so well that she has no issues with other dog and will happily wrestle and play with them. But if challenged she will likely not back down. This breed was never bred for guard or attack duty, its just not in them to be aggressive towards people. Do research on the breed before you write down nonesense all over the web. Theres alot of dip shits out there who are just as dumb as you, who might actually believe your bullshit.

  152. This idiot knows nothing about Huskies. As a breeder I would consider most of your information to be inaccurate at best. Here’s a few tips.

    Huskies originate from Siberia.
    They have NO more genetic connection to wolves than a chihuahua. The appearance is purely that: phenotype NOT genotype.
    Huskies make awful guard dogs -they are not loyal or protective.
    Huskies are likely to take flight if let off lead or given a chance of escape.
    They certainly aren’t aggressive -aloof at best.
    Of course, any dog can attack if not given the correct training or discipline.
    Huskies need a lot of stimulation, discipline and training. They are incredibly independent but enjoy social interaction with other dogs and humans. That said, they usually get along better with dogs of a similar breed because of their rough play style.

    Start with that and you might get a little further.

  153. bogies

  154. PIT BULLS ARE DANGEROUS THEY ATTACK! i will say who ever owns and pit bull GIT RID OF IT.

  155. I hate this articl to but i using it for school sht so watev

  156. The writer of this article is a complete FOOL and knows about as much about dogs as I know about nuclear reactors.

  157. great facts!!!

  158. any personal storys????

  159. This article is a complete joke! for one all of these dogs are GREAT DOGS. For two, pit bulls are absolute amazing dogs. I am a huge fan of them and I have fostered 3 of them and adopted one of them and am purchasing another one next week. I have seen what these dogs have been through and through all of that they make the best dogs. It’s horrible that they have such a bad rep because of those jerks who dog fight like “Mike Vic” from the Philadelphia Eagles. I read an article about one of his dogs that he used in dog fights and he was adopted by a loving family with 3 young children. that dog protected that family, was loyal and was the most loving dog anyone could ever ask for. it does not matter about there past. it’s about how someone raises them. fostering these dogs for so long I have seen change with love care and commitment. The one I adopted was beaten, scolded at, starved, when I first fostered her she was skin and bones and nothing else. She was a sad little thing with no trust. Everyday we worked and worked at her and eventually she became our baby. Now she trust everyone and will lick you to death. I have a 1 year old daughter and she is so gentle and protects it like it’s hers! These dogs deserve a lot more respect and being the number one most vicious dog makes me sick because this is NOTHING but a label.

  160. There is a lot of misinformation in this article. First, The Alaskan Malamute didn’t originate for Nordic. They originated in Alaska. Second, the Husky didn’t originate in Alaska. It originated in Siberia. Thus the reason it’s called a Siberian Husky. Why either dog would be considered dangerous is beyond my comprehension. Both breeds are well known for being great with children. My Malamute would let my infant crawl all over her when she was a toddler and younger. Timber didn’t like it but she tolerated it. Really though, you will find more breeds that have a greater record of attacking people than these two breeds. Maybe the difference is that if a Bichon attacks someone you’re going to laugh and kick it off. Whereas if a Malamute or Siberian attacks you, you might be in trouble. Probably should have left its family alone huh? They aren’t good watch dogs but they will protect their families.

  162. The writer of this article is an idiot! Research somewhere else. So much wrong and/or misinformation on here.

  163. Complete bollocks malamutes dangerous? Huskies?

  164. worse article ever! where is the back up information and stats to support this? also doesn’t say why they’re so dangerous or give an example except the pittbull of course and if this person knew anything they’d realize the pitbull terrier is not generally that large in size, that’s usually the case for “bullys” and certain dogs being specially selected to breed with another large pitbull. Hate idiots who offer advice…..

  165. pit bulls are not dangerous dogs it is the way the owners teach them to be it is not their fault that they get made to fight or hurt people but they do it bc that is for they was trained to be and do

  166. For those who think these dogs are dangerous, There are tooo many idiots out there that they are (ALL THAT) cause they have a visous dog! Have you noticed those are the dogs that attack! Gee, I wonder who taught them to do that! We have tooo many wannabes that think they are superior dog handlers . They havent go a clue fo what they are doing. Here is a lil tidbit . Dogs are pack animals. It their nature. They naturally protect their own. We don’t need to teach what comes naturally! If you introduce them to people in a good way, guess what they won’t forget how to protect you and you can save all that $$$$$ from a law suit ! and maybe keep him from a needless death penalty!!!! So next time you hear of another attack, don’t blame the dogs! Take a good look at the owners maybe (THEY) are the dangerous breed!!!!!!!!

  167. the person that wrote realy dosnt know what there talking about
    . he says siberian huskiesoriginated in alaske . that says iut all. i own 5 malamutes . yes these dogs can be dog agressive but ive never know one to attack a person. i trained obediance for the south australian huskie and malamuts club for 10 years and had to recomend only one dog be put down and that had a head problem
    so as for huskies and mals being dangerious you should realy check facts before dribling crap.
