Many dog owners have different ideas when it comes to which breeds of dogs are the most dangerous and which ones are the most docile and friendly. The most aggressive dog breeds generally exhibit behavior that’s meant to scare or intimidate other animals or people. You can tell if a particular breed has aggression issues by the way it acts. You should especially pay attention when you are selecting a puppy. Is it the bully of the group, or quite shy and timid?
Don’t just look at a dog’s breed when selecting one. Even the gentlest of breeds can be violent ones, especially if they aren’t given enough socialization and training. Did you know that the breeds that are more likely to bite are the ones people rarely think about – like the cuddly toy poodle or the Jack Russell Terrier?
So here is our list of the most dangerous dog breeds.
- Chow Chows are one-man dogs that be given to bite with no warning. They’re also a bit ferocious around unknowns, and can be quite tenacious fighters. So be sure to discipline this dog and set right from wrong, immediately.
- The Papillon is fiercely loyal of their owners – to a fault. They can be quite possessive and standoffish to strangers.
- Old English Sheepdogs are very protective of their owners so they might be aggressive if anybody comes too close to their masters.
- A Llasa Apso often gets quite cranky around kids.
- Rottweilers are extremely protective of their masters and home so they also make great guard dogs.
- Chihuahuas aren’t too fond of kids so they also make it into our list of most aggressive dog breeds. They’d rather be with adults than play around with tots.
- Toy Poodles bite people and other animals out of self defense. Unfortunately, ‘playing’ according to you may be perceived as a form of ‘attack’ to them.
- Dachshunds aren’t known for their patience and are quite quick to ‘snap’.
- Jack Russell Terriers are feisty creatures who require early training to prevent long-term biting and digging problems.
- Giant Schnauzers are very dominant. They often challenge adults, particularly strangers.
- Cocker Spaniels often suffer from a dangerous genetic disease known as “rage syndrome.” This syndrome causes spontaneous violent action against not strangers, but even family members too. Many Spaniels have been put down because of this unwanted behavior. Check with the breeder to ensure your Spaniel is free from this dangerous dog disease.
- The Pekingese isn’t all that tolerant of strangers and can be aggressive little ‘ankle biters’.
- The worlds most aggressive dog breed though has to be the Pit Bull Terrier though accounting for more mauling’s, injuries and even deaths to other animals and people. They are the breed that is covered the most in the news when it comes to dog attacks. Of course it is not usually the dogs fault when they do attack as it’s purely down to their own animal instincts, but attacks can usually be put down to their irresponsible owners.. Athough pit bulls are ‘generally’ quite gentle and can make a well loved pet.
Here’s a rundown of more breeds of dog that are typically gentle but can’t shake off their “bad dog” image.
- Boxers are pretty good with kids. They are good watchdogs, but will only become aggressive
- Bulldogs are very playful and gentle.
- Great Danes, while considerable in size, happen to be kind and affectionate.
- Mastiffs are especially quiet and docile.
- German Shepherds are great with kids too. These are courageous, fiercely loyal dogs who, if trained properly, will be extremely gentle to family and guests.
- Rottweilers are also capable of tenderness and affection. They have a bad rep, but if they trust you, you’ll never have to worry.
Breakfast cereal is one of those foods you sort of forgot about as you’ve grown older. You usually wake up with just enough time to get to work fifteen minutes late and it leaves no time for a delicious bowl of yummy cereal. Sure most American cereals are bad for you but it’s better than eating a bowl of Kashi with those freaky smiling people on the box. Enjoy this collection of cereal spoof pictures!

|Cover Stone Parakeet:|
Parakeets are EXTREMELY smart creatures and are used to living in huge flocks with thousands of other parakeets. They tend to use a variety of calls and chirps to stay in contact with each other, to warn of danger, to track down their children, and much more. These same noises and chirps are used when they are pets in your cage!
Note that while other parrots can be VERY loud – including macaws and cockatiels – parakeets are NOT extremely loud. If you neglect them they may cry out for attention, but if you take good care of them, they will be peaceful and happy!
The most common sound heard by most good parakeet owners is the contented warble. Parakeets do this while they are falling asleep, while they are listening to music, hanging out on your shoulder, preening themselves. This is sort of like a cat purring.
Parakeets love music and will sing along with songs as best they can by fweeping merrily. They won’t normally just spontaneously do this if it’s quiet, but if there’s music playing they’ll add in their own voices. Note that if you leave your parakeets alone you should leave some music playing to keep them company. In the wild, there was always noise. If there was NOT noise it was a sign that there was a predator lurking around. So to leave your parakeets in a dead silent area is going to give them a lot of stress.
Remember the movie Mars Attacks? Every parakeet owner I know say that the Ack-Ack is a form of Parakeet Talk. It’s sort of a parakeet’s way of saying “Hah hah!” or “Look at this!” or “I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it!” :)
ARK! ARK! ARK!
Where ack-ack-ack! is a light, cheery cry that usually involves the parakeet bobbing its head up and down in sheer abandon, there’s a separate cry that it makes when for example a flockmate is trying to pull her tail out. This is a loud angry ARK! ARK! ARK! which is a STOP IT RIGHT NOW YOU JERK!!! call.
High Pitched Yelp / FWEEP
This is a cry of distress. With our three parakeets, if one of them gets separated from the other two it will begin to yelp. This is sort of a “Lost! Lost!” cry, and the other parakeets will all out to it to help it find its way back home again. In fact, sometimes if Bob leaves the room after being in there for a while, the other parakeets will assume he’s “lost” and start yelping for him, to help him get back to the safe home. He has to go back and tell them he’s OK, that he’s just going to be away for a little while, and they settle down. We call this their “FWEEP!” :)
You can Teach your Parakeet to Talk if you’re patient and your parakeet is interested in learning. Male parakeets are easier to teach than females, and young parakeets that were hand raised are the easiest to teach. Don’t worry if your parakeet doesn’t learn to talk, not all do. Your parakeet will still be able to communicate to you in its own warbles and fweeps.
Parakeets are VERY smart and love making interesting sounds. So parakeets learn to make noises like cell phones ringing, trucks backing up, or whatever other sounds they hear in their environment. My parakeets don’t talk, but I’ve taught them to sing “Fee-Bee” like a chickadee, with the first note high and the second note low. They love that, and it drives the chickadees outside crazy :)
