The Most Dangerous Dogs In The World Revealed

By on March 9, 2014

Undoubtedly it’s going to be controversial. Without fear of chicken counting, it will receive a lot of traffic. And without any element of doubt, it might cause ripples but it needs to be out there, for the public to know. K9 Magazine's Ryan O'Meara has decided to publicly name the five MOST dangerous dogs on the planet.

The Most Dangerous Dogs in the World in reverse order:

5. Badly fed dog.

Badly fed dog is the animal who’s been fuelled up with a diet fit for an Olympic weight lifter, but who only ever gets to expend about 20% of the calories he takes in. He’s got lots of energy and his mismatched diet can manifest in bouts of sudden energetic rampaging. Badly fed dog would ask you to consider; how you would feel spending your day in an office when every inch of your body is throbbing and twitching as you crave the opportunity to actually use up some of those excess calories. Badly fed dog would be happier and safer if his diet reflected his lifestyle.

4. Never had any friends dog.

Otherwise known as ‘totally under socialised dog’.

He was a little naughty when he was a puppy, so his owner decided he’d be better off being kept away from all other forms of animal life. He now spends his days obsessing over what it would be like to chase other dogs around and, by George, one of these days he’s gonna actually do it!

Never had any friends dog is going to present his owner with a lifetime of problems, he has no social skills and has never had a chance to learn natural interaction through the teachings of his own kind. He’ll meet new dogs and will be about as socially adept as a 45-year old virgin at a Playboy mansion party. He’s going to blow it. Big time.

3. Shouty.

Shouty is the dog who has spent most of his life shouting at folks or being shouted at himself. He sees people on his street, he shouts at them. In turn, his owner shouts at him. Shouty presumes being shouted at is a recognition of his excellent work.


It's time to call on Governments everywhere to END breed specific legislation now. Education is the answer.

    Well said Ryan – about time this approach was taken and spelt out!
    On the news, we never hear any case history of the dog who has bitten or killed. Highlighted is a dead child, or persons injuries and then comes the breed. A big mistake. If they followed it up by saying, the dog was fed B* awful dog food, not exercised, never socialised, untrained, left for hours alone in an anxious state, teased, spoilt, all or any of these, it would perhaps prevent more cases by educating other owners of what not to do and what to do.

    Great article, dogs are not born dangerous.
    If a white six foot tall man gets arrested for murder, should we arrest all men with the same description ?
    I cannot believe the government can be this thick (for want of a better word) ………
    Ask the CWU (postmen) most of the dog biters are not on the banned list under section one.
    Its not working, people with a type dog (government made up breed) are scared to take their dogs training, walking etc for fear of being seized. The government are making problems for these dogs. They all need socialising, not being hidden indoors. Action now. Dont judge a breed by a tape measure, judge every dog by its temperament. Leave the decision to the dog behaviourist, the Blue Cross etc. Most MPs know nothing about dogs, yet they decide to stick with this useless legislation.

    I personally think there are No bad breeds of dogs (only Bad Owners)I am a retired veterinary technician and also have worked with guard dogs.I have been in contact with all breeds of the so called bad dogs and have never had any problem.I have a Pit Bull who would tear an intruder to shreds but the family she tries to lick to death.She is a real sweetheart.I also have a Rottweiler mix,who would chew up any stranger,but loves us and children,and last but not least a Pekinese mix who is 13.She is and always has been a bit on the crazy side.I love them sooooo much.

    Don’t forget unspayed and un-neutered dogs; studies have shown that these dogs are significantly more likely to be aggressive than any breed of dog spayed or neutered as puppies.

    Then there’s dogs who spend most of their time tied up. They are up high on the list, irrespective of breed.

    I have a staffie mix who would greet a home invader with a smile and tail wag. He just loves everyone.
