Dogs are known to be the best friend of man even til date, besides this, man uses dogs as his basis of security; some dog breeds can be taken to the farm for hunting, as some are positioned in a compound to run a query on strangers. As friendly as dog is, that is how dangerous dog had become.

The dog is the most easily manipulated animal in the world.  Various breeds had been locally created by simply crossing another animal or another dog breed with one another.  Some dog breeds had been created that really looked like a threat to certain countries. The following is a list of dogs that have received a ban in certain countries.

Around the 80s, there was a breakout in the attack of Pit Bull Dogs and other similar breeds which led to a wider ban in some dog breeds. The Japanese Tosa Inus, Fila Brasilieros, Pit Bulls and Argentime Dogos were banned by the UK Parliament in 1991, so many countries also followed this legacy.

5 of the Most Banned Dogs

American Bulldog

American BulldogThese dogs are prohibited around Denmark, Singapore and some other provinces. The origin of the American Bulldog is from the deep south, where they were employed as farm dogs. This breed is an expert in feral hogs.  They are known to catch hogs that weigh more than a hundred pounds and that have savage tusks. The Bulldog fights the hog and holds it down until the hunter arrives and because of this their pain threshold is very high. They usually weigh around 70 – 100 lbs, but many have been known to be even larger than this.



BandogThese are large dogs that were used as night guards on properties.  They were kept on a chain during the day and then released at night to guard its property.  The modern Bandog is never a purebred, as various crossings have been made among the American Pit Bull and different mastiffs. The aim was to produce a dog that had the mastiff size and the strength of the American Pit Bull Terrier.  The dog weighs about 80 – 150 lbs. Bandogs are usually prohibited in places that have restrictions on its parent breeds.

WolfdogThere are many different breeds of wolves and domestic dogs.   A couple of examples are the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog which is a mixed breed of the German Shepherd and the Carpathian Wolf and the Saarloos Wolfhound which is a mix of the German Shepherd and the Mackenzie Valley timber wolf.  This breed is thought to have a behavior like a wolf and can be dangerous. It has a high affinity for prey catch and probably is not a good choice for a pet.  It is believed that children have been victims of Wolfdog attacks because the Wolfdog may see them as a prey item .
