1.American Pit-bull terrier

The American Pitbull Terrier is one of the most recognizable dog breeds on the planet and is always mis-judged because of all the hype the media has created around it.

It originally was bred to ‘Bait’ bulls hence the name Pitbull, but then later became of the most loving house pet because of the gentle and protective nature around Children.

As they say love will make you do things you would not normally do. As its a protective breed it has a tendency to be aggressive around strangers and without proper training can be a loose canon.

2.Dogo argentino

So where should i start about this BEAUTIFUL BEAST!

It has a short white coat with occasionally patches on the head. It has a huge head compared to its body and is supported by a strong neck. It is pretty muscular for a dog with strong paws.

It has a a powerful jaw with a strong bite strength and without proper training and exercise this dog can become aggressive.


This breed is NOT recommended for a first time pet owner as it requires a lot of Training, Love and Caring and needs constant emotional bonding for it to mature well.

They were almost extinct in the 1800 due to the popularity spike of other smaller breeds

Rottweiler can be a savage once it comes to a dog breed as it can cause extensive damage with his dagger like teeth. It needs a emotionally and physically strong human to handle and train the breed as its a fairly big and aggressive dog.

It is very territorial and super protective and caring about the children but as they say “With great power comes great responsibility”

4.Neapolitan mastiff

This giant working dog from Italy has wrinkled skin, short fur, a muscular build, and long, floppy jowls that hang from its face.

Despite its size, the Neapolitan Mastiff is a gentle giant that can make an excellent family dog. If you’re looking for a friend that can also help keep you safe, the Neapolitan Masti is a great choice. The Neapolitan Masti is also an easygoing and low-maintenance companion.

In addition to its unique appearance, this breed is a great companion. Neapolitan Mastiffs love their families unconditionally, but can be wary of strangers, making them excellent guard dogs to protect their homes from intruders.

Their fearless and protective attitude is sure to scare away unwanted visitors. Neapolitan Mastiffs are particularly loving personalities when it comes to spending time with their owners. They are not usually a playful breed, but your Mastiff will love to be petted inside or walked a few times a day.


At first glance, you might think that a big, intimidating Boerboel would make a great guard dog, and you’d be right.

However, this breed is equally known for being loving, calm and family friendly, especially with human children. These giant guardians were bred to help South African farmers protect their farms from hyenas, lions and all manner of deadly wildlife while providing an invaluable companion.

The Boerboel, pronounced “bu-r-bull,” derives its name from Dutch/Afrikaans words that roughly translate to “farm dog.” It is also known as South African Mastiff, South African Boerboel, Borbull or Bole.

6.Presa Canario

The Perro de Presa Canario has a calm appearance and thoughtful expression. It is particularly suitable for livestock keeping and traditional grazing.

Perro de Presa Canario is a moderately large molossus with a straight profile and a black mask. It is strong and dimensional. Low, deep shell, he has a balanced character and is very confident.

Obedient and obedient with family members, he is very devoted to his master, but can be suspicious of strangers. When alert, his stance is firm and alert.

7.Wolf Dog Breeds

What exactly is a wolfdog, you ask?

As the name suggests, the wolfdog is a hybrid between a wolf and a domesticated dog, with Siberian Huskies, Malamutes and German Shepherds being the most commonly crossed domesticated breeds.

Both wolves and domesticated dogs are “inbreeds,” meaning they are genetically similar enough to interbreed, but these hybrid dogs are rare in the wild because wolves are very aggressive and territorial.

Like many other “dangerous” dogs, there is controversy surrounding wolfdogs – and whether or not they make good pets. Some say they are loyal, loving and fully trainable animals, while others say they are too wild, aggressive and unpredictable.

The truth is, there is no such thing as a “typical” wolfdog, and there is no way to predict how “wolf” it will be. Therefore, there is much more variability in behavior and temperament than, say, a Golden Retriever, which can be difficult for pet parents who are unable to raise a wolf dog with an unpredictable temperament and wolf-like needs. Unfortunately, many of these animals end up living in cages or are euthanized because their owners were not prepared to properly care for them.


The true origin of the “Bandogge” or American Bandogmastiff is unknown, although it is believed that the hybrid race originated in Middle England around 1250-1300.

The ancestors of the Bando are believed to be the American Pitbull and the Neapolitan Mastiff, but other influential bloodlines may include early Bullenbeissers and Crusader crosses.

Strictly a working dog, the Bandog was bred primarily for hunting, fighting and guarding property – usually chained up all day and let out at night to protect the homestead.

This formidable breed has a number of characteristics, which is not surprising since the modern Bando was developed from several domestic breeds, including the Great Dane, the Neapolitan Mastiff, the Pit Bull Terrier and the American Staffordshire Terrier.

Therefore, bandogs do not have a single breed standard and their appearance varies greatly. Commonly seen characteristics include a strong and powerful build, a broad skull and muzzle, strong limbs and upright triangular ears.

9.American Bulldog

The American Bulldog is a walking contradiction: powerful yet friendly, serious yet silly.

This big-hearted breed will be happy to play with you and your children – looking at strangers with one eye. These dogs are sometimes clownish (like their cousin the English Bulldog) and also hardworking, bred to work on farms and ranches.

With this active and quite agile breed, you will enjoy many activities, from hiking to exercising. For those who want a dog with both brains and brawn, the American Bulldog is the complete package.

The proud attitude of the American Bulldog helps show their loyal personality and win over families and single parents.

A strong chest and a confident walk indicate a willingness to move and play. But with its cute floppy ears and sleek white coat with distinct black and brown markings, the American Bulldog also offers a cuddly side.

10.Fila Brasileiro

The Fila Brasileiro was developed centuries ago in Brazil as a hunting and working dog for large game. These big dogs can be intimidating, but there’s a reason the saying “loyal as filial” exists in Brazil.

This breed is also known as Brazilian Mastiff, Brazilian Bloodhound, cao de brasil, cao de fila and fila. Although they are purebred dogs, you can still find them in shelters and rescues.

Don’t forget to adopt! Do not buy if this is the right breed for you.

This massive dog is probably not the best choice for first-time pet parents or apartment owners, as the Fila Brasileiro requires solid, experienced training and plenty of room to run.

The breed is banned in several countries where these dogs are considered aggressive. But for the experienced large dog owner who is willing to devote a lot of time to training and socialization, the Fila Brasileiro can be an excellent companion and guard dog.

DogTime recommends this large and spacious crate to rest and relax the big Fila Brasileiro. You should also get this dog brush and massager for your short haired pup! See below for a full list of Fila Brazileiro dog breeds and traits!

11.Cane Corso

Cane Corso is a working dog that likes to work very much. This old Italian dog breed was developed to guard property and hunt large game such as wild boar. Although they are purebred dogs, you can find them in the care of rescue groups or shelters.

Powerful and athletic, Cane Corsos are best suited for experienced pet parents with large, securely fenced yards. They certainly need people to give them a mission; otherwise, they may find their own ways to reduce boredom—probably through destructive behavior. If you can give your dog plenty of space, exercise and training, this may be the breed for you!

The Cane Corso (Corso for short) is a serious dog breed for those who are serious about having a dog as a companion and can provide them with firm and loving guidance to become a great dog.

He is just a family dog. Do not expect him to get along with everyone he meets: he is not interested in people outside his family or other animals, but family members receive his undivided loyalty and protection.

Give this dog a job. He is not willing to hang out like that all day and will find his “work” if you don’t offer it: usually he runs on the fence and barks at passers-by, digs holes in china or chews your furniture. If you have a farm or ranch, he will help you take care of livestock; otherwise, take him to dog sports such as agility, dock diving, nose work, obedience or tracking.
