Dangerous Dog Breeds Do Not Deserve The Bad Rap

Pit Bull

Temperament: Confident, Smart, Good-Natured
Height: 18-19 inches (male), 17-18 inches (female)
Weight: 55-70 pounds (male), 40-55 pounds (female)

Pitties include the American Pit Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier,

which are all derived from English Bulldogs and were developed for bull-baiting—biting bigger animals such as bulls or bears to pin them.

People turned the dogs against each other and bred them down with terriers to make them quicker when the sport was banned in the mid-1800s.

Pit bulls are responsible for the majority of dog attacks in the United States. The majority of dangerous dogs are bred for guarding or illegal dogfighting.

With the correct owner, training, and socialization, a pit bull may become a loving, compassionate family member.

Chow Chow

Temperament: Dignified, Bright, Serious-Minded
Height: 17-20 inches
Weight: 45-70 pounds
Life Expectancy: 8-12 years

The Chow Chow is one of the oldest domestic dog breeds still in existence. It looks like a lion and may act like one.

The Chow Chow, which was originally intended to hunt and defend, is aloof, independent, and occasionally stubborn, which can lead to problems if not cared for by a competent, caring owner. 

This breed should never be kept in a home with small children or other dogs unless it has been properly socialized from an early age.
