Many countries in the world regulate certain dog breeds. This happens due to their potential ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀ to society and ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇness. They are ʙᴀɴɴᴇᴅ completely or ʀᴇsᴛʀɪᴄᴛᴇᴅ in the form of obligatory microchipping, obtaining a special permit, mandatory sterilization, and special conditions for keeping them. In some countries, it is even necessary to provide the owner’s ᴄʀɪᴍɪɴᴀʟ record and a psychological certification.
We found out which breeds are ʙᴀɴɴᴇᴅ and ʀᴇsᴛʀɪᴄᴛᴇᴅ the most. But we strongly believe that there are no ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ dogs, there is just improper upbringing. And even though they are considered ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀous, we think they can be lovely furballs in a loving family.
1. American Staffordshire Terrier
This is the most controversial puppy. On the one hand, as many as 11 countries regulate this breed by law. But at the same time, every now and then it makes it on the lists of the most popular dogs around the world.
2. Dogo Argentino
And again we have 18 countries in the world that regulate these dogs. This time the number is for this snow-white Argentinian beauty. Luckily, at least in their homeland they don’t have ʀᴇsᴛʀɪᴄᴛions and can have loving owners.
3. Brazilian Mastiff
The beautiful and sad eyes of this breed reveal that about 14 countries treat them with caution. Some see them as ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ, while others see them as work and guard dogs.
4. Presa Canario
This breed opens the list with 8 countries regulating them. They may look ɪɴᴛɪᴍɪᴅᴀᴛɪɴɢ, but they are actually level-headed and calm doggies that are devoted to their humans.
This Japanese puppy is considered ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀous in 18 countries. It was bred for dog-ꜰɪɢʜᴛɪɴɢ. And the sad thing is that it is still used for this in Japan on a legal basis.
6. Staffordshire Bull Terrier
This doggie is one of the dog-ꜰɪɢʜᴛɪɴɢ breeds. Despite this, they are friendly and tender pups and recommended as family dogs. But 12 countries worldwide think the opposite and have either ᴘʀᴏʜɪʙɪᴛᴇᴅ or ʀᴇsᴛʀɪᴄᴛᴇᴅ them.
Although Rottweilers are actively used in rescue operations, serve on police forces, and herd cattle perfectly, 10 countries consider them ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀous. In reality, they are confident guard dogs and playful fluffies.
8. Pit Bull
These cuties are at the top of the list. 24 countries ʀᴇsᴛʀɪᴄᴛ or ᴘʀᴏʜɪʙɪᴛ them. Moreover, it’s not only the pit bulls themselves, but also pit bull-type dogs and their cross-breeds fall under legal control. In addition, the American Kennel Club doesn’t even recognize this lovely breed.
Do you think any of these puppies are ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀous? Do you have a doggie? What breed is it?
