Breed: Fila Brasiliero
Why they made the list: Fila Brasilieros are extremely intelligent and athletic, but terribly aggressive and strong. They are banned in the U.K., Israel, Denmark, Norway, Malta and Cyprus.
I agree on the way the puppy is brought up.How they train it also.But if the parents of the puppyis aggressive them the puppy will be like that.It is ture in the genes of the dog.
I have three but I full huge dogs and my biggest one is an American bull and he climbs in bed with me under the covers he nozzles me when I'm hurt or upset he loves my children he lays in bed with me he is basically my best friend if anyone tried to take him the only dangerous thing they need to worry about is me a dog is like a child with a mum they learn from us and if we love them they will love us unconditionaly forever ...Thanks for listening to me we must stand for them no one else will
list like these are plain ignorant I have a Doberman Pincher and he is the most affectionate goofy dog I have ever had the pleasure to know. I have two pit bulls as well and they both having personalities of their own are wonderful dogs. I find it ridiculous that all these so called agressive breeds are put on list like these. the so called agressive breeds end up being the most loyal and loving dogs. I love dobermans and pit bulls!!!
I agree that dog bite data is very inaccurate and for that reason, so are these lists. It never makes the paper or the 6 o clock news when someone gets bit by a lab. A friend of mine was severely mauled by her friend's Labrador retriever, hospitalized, out of work for 6 months etc. never made the news or any newspapers. Can you imagine the hype if that had been a pit bull? I was bit by a dog as a child, by a cocker spaniel. My friends grandson got a bad bite to the face by the family dog, again not any of the breeds on these lists. My daughter was a dog groomer, bit multiple times by dogs, always the smaller ones. She fell in love with pit bulls after working with them beta sues they were so friendly and eager to please and never gave her any trouble. Dog bites are almost always caused by badly behaved humans, poorly trained dogs and misunderstandings between the two.
bloodhounds seriously? How is it even fair to ban a dog based on size alone? So only small dogs deserve love and a chance to live? Sounds anti-humanism to me. Ridiculous.
Only a genetically unstable dog is dangerous. It has nothing to do with with the breed, it's the individual dog.The breed as whole is NOT dangerous. Sure, there are dogs of that breed that are "dangerous", but in every breed, there IS a dangerous dog. Heck, the Pit Bull breed is one of the most over-bred dogs. SO many breeders don't give two sh'ts. They create a problem. They breed dogs that have poor temperaments, dogs that are unstable. Back in the day when the breed was becoming a breed, a human aggressive dog would be culled. The only times a dog will be1. Human Aggressive is if the dog is Unstable, or unsound. 2. The dog was raised in unstable environment. The dog was abused,or neglect. Sometimes if a dog has very little, or no human contact the dog will be fear aggressive 3. Socialization. 4. The dog is the wrong handsSome of these breeds are dog aggressive, genetically. Most(well all), are usually not dogs for the novice owner. There wonderful dogs don't get me wrong.But so many dogs end up in the wrong hands. The majority of pet owners can't properly own a DA dog. You can't take away DA, you can only control it. DA, is a trait, & lie any other trait, it is genetically wired.
Bloodhounds? Really. No. They are the sweetest dogs I've ever known! I call bs on most of this list.
I lost all respect for this article and sit because of the dogs on this list. First of all, how is a bloodhound on there? They are the most gentle dogs I have ever known.
I work in a natural pet food store, I have seen all these breeds come in and they are all the sweetest ones. They just want to be pet and loved. Pitbulls especially are the most loving and forgiving animal there is. Its all the little ones like yorkies, poodles, matlteses, that are the aggresive ones.
I have a pitt who was used as a bait dog. You would think she woukd be aggressive but she isn't. I have a 9 year old who rolls aound on the floor with her and climbs all over playing with her and I have a 13week old who the dog loves as well. I have taken pictures of my dog with my newborn laying on her. She cries when the baby cries pushing at me to get up for the baby. Every morning she goes in my 9 year olds room to wake him. Her day is spent by the side of the baby. She sleeps with her head by her or she lays next to her. I trust my pitt more then a cat or my parents lil dogs. Husbands attack their wives, children kill their parents, men rape women and they are still in the world and when that occurs its oh they had a babd childhood. But just having the name doinh nothing wrong its the dog. There needs to be more knowledge about these pups. I would keep owning them and trying to make ignorant people aware. Its all how you raise them. Like anything else show them love and they will show you.
