Top 10 Most DANGEROUS DOG Breeds In The World

Hello YouTube, Jim here! Welcome to Top10Archive! They’re meant to be man’s best friend, but
some pooches weren’t bred and raised to be all cute and cuddly. While we know how a canine acts is typically
based on how it’s treated and raised by their owner, considering the 440+ American
deaths caused by dogs from 1982 to 2016, they’re bound to get a pretty bad rap for being deadly
and vicious. When people mention dangerous dog breeds,
chances are they’re talking about any of these following ten compiled from North American
data spanning over years. And as we get started, help us out by hitting

This obvious designer breed is a strange mix of breeds considering… well, you’ll see
why soon enough. At an average of 26-inches or roughly 66-centimeters,
the Pitweiler is a mid-sized animal that’s typically known for being an obedient family
dog, but from September 1982 to December 2016, the Pitweiler was involved in approximately
58 attacks resulting in bodily harm, resulting in two deaths and 19 maimings. Owners or those seeking to own the Pitweiler
are encouraged to establish dominance early in the relationship to make training easier. 9. Chow Chow
This is like telling a child their favorite teddy bear is wanted for murder! Though fluffy and irresistibly cuddly, Chow
Chows are also said to have a darker side to them. Originally bred in China to hunt and provide
protection to its owner, Chow Chows are generally respectful to their human companion and show
a fierce aggression if they feel they are in danger. From 1982 to 2016, Chows were held responsible
for 66 attacks on humans that resulted in eight deaths and 44 maimings. While Chows can be trained, it’s an ill-advised
breed for first-time dog owners as they are known for having a dominating personality
and aversion to negative reinforcement. 8. Labrador Retriever
Known for being friendly and outgoing, these gentle-faced pups have ranked as the most
popular dog breed for nearly 30 years in a row according to the American Kennel Club,
which is why it’s odd to see the breed on the list. Over a period of more than 30 years, Labradors
have been pegged for 68 bodily attacks, 41 of which involving child victims. A little less than 10% of those attacks resulted
in death, but 53 were severe enough for the victim to have been maimed. Aggressive behavior is not uncommon in Labradors,
typically triggered by fear. Before a Labrador turns to aggression, it
exhibits warning signs like frequent nose licking, dilated pupils, and yawning. 7. Akita
An instinctual animal, most of the Akita’s aggression problems stem from a lack of human
understanding. As a guard dog, the Akita takes its role very
seriously and will act aggressively towards anyone or anything that threatens the space
it’s meant to protect. It’s this instinct that may have led to
the 75 attacks and eight deaths attributed to the breed over a 34-year period. When trained and properly socialized, the
Akita can be a loving and devoted pup, but those left to their territorial instincts
will be quick to consider any place they’re in as theirs. 6. Boxer
These dopey dogs may look innocent and cute, but an estimated 87 attacks over the 34-year
span that led to nine deaths and 45 maimings indicates something beneath those gentle eyes. Believed to have been written into the Boxer’s
genetic code during the breeding process of the Bullenbeisser and British Bulldog, Boxers
are instinctively aggressive. When not properly socialized and trained,
their underlying aggressions can pop up when fear sets in. Boxers that are cut off from being social
and puppies removed from their mother too early normally have increased odds of being
aggressive. 5. Siberian Husky
Over the 34-year period reported by ANIMALS 24-7, Huskies accounted for a surprising 95
attacks, 28 deaths, and 33 disfigurements. Looking deep into the wolven eyes of these
exotic pups, there’s a deep and underlying hostility, but it’s actually not believed
to be a common instinctive trait across the breed. Not too dissimilar than humans, Husky aggression
can be heredity and differ entirely from pup to pup. Typically, Husky antagonism is a sign of a
lack of socialization and indicated by a rigid posture, lunging, muzzle punching, and snapping. Even at an older age, Husky aggression can
be controlled through continued training and socializing. 4. Perro de Presa Canario
This incredibly territorial and reserved pooch hails from the Canary Islands and is a member
of the Bullmastiff breed. Also known as the Canary Mastiff, the Perro
de Presa Canario was originally bred to work livestock which may lend to its aversion to
strangers and its territoriality. Since 1982, the Canary Mastiff has been responsible
for 124 attacks, 18 deaths, and 76 mutilations, proving that proper training and socialization
is imperative. This breed of Mastiff requires a lot of care
and, though the thought of having an exotic four-legged companion appeals to many, is
recommended only for experienced dog owners. 3. German Shepherd
One-hundred and fifty attacks, 17 deaths, 106 maimings. These higher numbers are likely attributed
to the German Shepherd’s popularity and the lack of awareness when it comes to how
human behavior can affect the animal’s own actions. Not known for being genetically aggressive,
the Shepherd requires early socialization to help curb any future aggressions and should
be trained as a puppy to recognize their human companions as “pack leader.” German Shepherds are also prone to becoming
hostile if previously mistreated by other dogs and/or people. 2. Rottweiler
Now that we’re towards the top of the list, the behaviors of the Pitweiler may start to
make a little more sense. Over the 34-year period, Rottweilers have
been the alleged cause of around 588 attacks and 89 deaths. Three hundred and sixteen of those attacks
were against children and 325 resulted in the individual being maimed, but this doesn’t
mean Rottweiler’s are a barking murder machine. Though they are naturally guarded, Rottweilers
are not naturally dangerous, typically picking up on negative behaviors from their human
companions. These sleek pups are rather vocal about their
emotions and it’s rarely a surprise when they’re about to strike, especially once
they start growling and baring their teeth. Rottweiler hostility is fairly easy to curb
if caught early in the pup’s life through training. 1. Pitbull
As much as the Pit Bull’s human companions refute the claim that their adorable pooch
is a hostile creature, sometimes numbers are difficult to refute. Looking through the past 34 years, Pit Bulls
have been the cause of over 4,600 attacks, 349 deaths, and a brutal 3,098 maimings. Of those attacks, 1,793 were children. With that being said, the Bulldog and Terrier
hybrid is more than capable of being a sweet and loyal pooch. Pitbulls were initially bred to be an Alpha
dog and were used to track and hold prey for their human companion and it’s this aggression
and hostility that tends to surface, making them the ideal animal for dogfighting. At an early age, it’s imperative to show
that they’re not the alpha in the relationship. When socialized early on, the typical aggression
Pitbulls have against other animals can easily be tempered.
