10 Most Popular Guard Dogs

GoMestic has a well researched round-up of the 10 Most Popular Guard Dogs From Around the World. German Shepherd, Doberman Pinscher, Rottweiler, American Pit Bull Terrier, Anatolian Shepherd or Kangal, Black Russian Terrier, American Bulldog, Bullmastiff, Kunming Wolf Dog, and Tibetan Mastiff - in general, these are large, hefty dogs who have gained an unwarranted reputation as being aggressive. Many communities are creating laws to restrict or outlaw some of these breeds. I don't think it's the fault of the animals, in most cases, it's the fault of the owners who deliberately or sometimes accidentally encourage undesirable traits in the animal. (via Biomes Blog)

I agree 100% with your last comment.
"I don't think it's the fault of the animals, in most cases, it's the fault of the owners who deliberately or sometimes accidentally encourage undesirable traits in the animal". I had a German shepherd/Rottweiler mix & he was very protective of me, but he was a gentleman with women,babies & little creatures. I miss him.
