Great DaneGreat Dane (Photo credit: Wikipedia)The Great Danes are the 9th most dangerous breed according to the study. With a total of 7 fatalities in the periods in between 1979-1998, the Great Dane or German Mastiff is known to be one of the largest breeds of dogs ever domesticated. Although they have a low prey drive (carnivorous animals feeding instinct), they were initially bred for hunting animals.

DobermanDobermann (Photo credit: Wikipedia)Known to be one of the most aggressive breeds of dogs ever, the Doberman Pinscher was one of the most recognizable dog breeds as they were used extensively as guard dogs. They were bred for the specific purpose of guarding their masters, and thus had to be aggressive but also intelligent.Trained properly, these dogs can become very loyal to their masters, but aggressive towards perceived threats to their owners.
MalamuteAlaskan Malamute (Photo credit: Wikipedia)Malamutes are commonly mistaken for another dog further up on this list, the Husky, but have many differences. They are quite large with adult males weighing around 85 pounds (34 kilograms) and standing about 25 inches (62 centimeters), however are known to be more passive due to their use as work dogs, pulling sleds and helping with manual labour.


Wolves themselves are ancestors of the modern domestic dog, and are known as one of the most dangerous predators in the wild even today.

RottweilerRottweiler (Photo credit: Wikipedia)Coming in at #2, the Rottweiler was responsible for 39 fatalities in this study. As with most old breeds, their prey drives require much training to dampen.Adult males have about the same dimensions as the German Shepard, however they are much heavier, with some being able to weigh around 110 pounds (50 kilograms).
Pit BullPitbull (Photo credit: Wikipedia)To anyone who knows dogs, the American Pit Bull Terrier is no surprise at #1 on a list of deadliest dogs.


In this study the Pit Bull stood far ahead of all the other breeds with 66 fatalities attributed to it.
