It’s not a secret that dogs can be terrifying. They are big fast loud aggressive and most importantly loving. This post is about the 10 scariest hybrid dog breeds in the world.
The Doberman is the Frankenstein’s monster of breeds. It was first established in 1890 by Carl Friedrich lewis Doberman. He was a tax collector. He wanted to make a dog that would protect him during his fraud expeditions to dangerous neighborhoods and confrontations with dangerous people. This was achieved by mixing several breeds including Rottweiler, German Pinscher, and Beauceron. The hybridization was successful and Doberman was born into the world.
We don’t need much of an explanation for this breed Wolf’s and domestic dogs have been bred in society for hundreds of years. Since domestic dogs split from Wolf’s only forty thousand years ago and share 99.9% of the same DNA crossbreeding is easy. Wolfdogs become the size of Wolf’s rather than dogs. In terms of temperament, they have a bad rep each which has resulted in breed-specific bands around the world. They also rank high in dog bite statistics.
Great Danes are gentle giants. They belong on this list based on sheer size. Although dogs resembling the Great Dane have been found on Egyptian monuments and in ancient Chinese literature. They even found their way into the hands of European royalty. It is the tallest breed of dog.
Mastiff was bred in the canary islands in the 15th and 16th centuries. These Mastiffs were then bred with bulldogs and sheepdogs, to create the unmistakable size and coat that has defined the breed also defining the breed.
Pit bulls have had a short but brutal history. They were first bred in England in the early 1800s by mixing Bulldogs with Terriers. This created in effect super dogs. Early they were used exclusively for blood sports like the bull and bear baiting. When blood sports were banned in England in 1835 pit bulls were forced to fight each other and were selectively bred for dogfighting. As it continued into the 21st century. They are the most popular fighting dogs. They are the most aggressive breed.
There are few breeds as powerful as the bull mastiff which has become one of the most feared. The colossal bull mastiff dates from the mid eighteen hundreds and was created by gamekeepers to help guard estates. The dogs were a result of breeding English Mastiff with now extinct Old English Bulldogs. The best qualities of both dogs converged in the bull mastiff which is large strong and fast. They are quite calm but if challenged they will put up a fight that no one wants. From 1982 to 2014 bull Mastiffs are deciding Li unaggressive unless provoked and their scariness is mostly an illusion.
This ghostly dog has a reputation similar to that of a pit bull. Dogo Argentino was first bred in 1928 in Argentina. It was developed by Antonio Martinez who wanted big-game hunting dogs for wild boar. It also has been used in dogfighting. It has been banned or restricted in countries like Denmark and Australia. It can make a social loyal and loving pet.
The Boerboel is also called the South African Mastiff and for obvious reasons. Boerboel translates from Africans to farmers dog. They were bred to protect farm hunt game and defended the land from intruders. Boerboel is now quite social and loyal dogs. But they are also unflinchingly protective which is why they can mane people who threaten their family or property. They have been banned in several countries.
