Despite having been domesticated for thousands of years, a dog’s size, strength, origins and environment often lend to its aggressive nature. How a dog is treated will often dictate its response — in other words, if a dog is abused and feels threatened, fearful or hurt, it can act out.
That means any dog has the propensity to be dangerous without the proper training and treatment. After reviewing several resources, however, we found the following dog breeds to be considered the most dangerous — some even landing on banned or uninsurable lists.
What can we do to change this? Well, with proper socialization, training and love, every dog can be a loyal family companion and best friend, including the breeds on this list. Just see for yourself.
