11 Big And Scary Dog Breeds That Will Keep Intruders Out

1. Dogo Argentino

This huge and terrifying dog has one of the loudest barks out there. This alone is enough to scare everyone!

2. Boerboel

Boerboels weigh between 150 and 200 pounds, so they might easily be heavier and stronger than you! Scary, isn't it?!

3. The English Mastiff

At first sight, it's easy to see why this colossal dog would scare anyone. Even though it's very quiet, its appearance alone is menacing!

4. Fila Brasiliero

The Fila Brasiliero, also known as the Brasilian Mastiff, is banned from many AKC sports and events due to its fierce guard dog instincts.

5. American Pit Bull Terrier

While this dog breed has a terrible reputation, we feel compelled to state that this is just discrimination. Despite the scary tales, the APBT can be a fantastic family pet. Just don't forget proper training and socialization!

6. Doberman

Known as the ultimate guard dog, it's easy to see why the presence of a Doberman Pinscher would scare anyone!

7. Kangal

Kangal is the dog breed with the highest bite force. They can bite stronger than lions. Truly intimidating!

8. Belgian Malinois

According to many people, Mals look like a slim, menacing version of a German Shepherd. Combine this with their shy nature, and you'll get a dog from nightmares!

9. American Bully

While perhaps even more gentle than the APBT, the American Bully looks like a Pitbull that went to a gym. This will make most people think this dog breed is truly a bully among canines!

10. Great Dane

Many people find Great Danes terrifying due to their huge size. However, this is one of the gentlest (and most cowardly) dog breeds in the world.

11. Rottweiler

The Rottweiler, while fairly affectionate, is the breed commonly used in the movies as the stereotypical guard dog. This makes many people, especially kids, scared of them.
