Most of the time, a dog’s behavior and personality are entirely dependent on its upbringing. However, there are some breeds of dogs that have earned an ill reputation of being vicious and dangerous because of their violent interactions with humans and other dogs. Although experts claim that proper domestication and training can iron out the kinks in the nature of an aggressive canine, we wonder how many people would go to great lengths to take one for the team. Although all dogs are great companions, the breeds of dogs mentioned in the forthcoming paragraphs require a little extra attention and training.
1. Pit Bull
Banned by many countries in the world, pit bulls are one of the most dangerous breeds of dogs in the world. In order to prevent aggressive outbursts, they are required to undergo several extensive and training exercises. Here’s a harrowing report for you! “A study released in 1991 found that 94% of the attacks on children by pit bulls were unprovoked.” You might need to think twice before adopting a pit bull as a pet companion.
According to the data provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Rottweilers were responsible for half of all deaths caused by dog bites in the United States between the years of 1993 and 1996. That data speaks volumes about the breed’s aggressive nature. Strong beyond belief, a Rottweiler’s bite can measure up to 1,460 newtons.
3. German Shepherd
There are various studies that have proven that German Shepherds have a tendency to attack smaller dogs. And when they do attack, they attack with a bite that has a force of over 1,060 newtons. There’s a reason German Shepherds are regularly used as police dogs. The breakers of the law have to stay vigilant at all times, or better, even stop committing crimes.
