Many dog owners in Nigeria prefer to get a dog for protection. These owners expect their dog to warn them of impending danger and scare of Intruders. They would in many cases opt for the scariest dog breeds which are normally Large, muscular, and intimidating dogs.

Just about any big dog will make the average criminal think twice. Many bad guys will even avoid confrontations with small dogs, given their predilection to bark incessantly at any perceived threat.

Because of this, most average people are probably better served by acquiring an intimidating or scary-looking dog breed. There are some dogs that look scarier than others.

The size and composition of the dog is an intimidation-factor . Black dogs are percieved to be more intimidating than those of other colors. The reasons for this aren’t entirely clear, but it may have something to do with the use of dog breeds of German origin and their history of intimidation.

Top Scariest Dog Breeds

Outlined below are some of the most scariest dog breeds in the world in no particular order;

Caucasian Ovcharka

These dogs were once bred to protect livestock on farms. Dogs of this breed are assertive, aggressive, and strong-willed. If they are not trained properly, they can become ferocious. That is why if they do not like someone, they readily make it clear, which makes them extremely dangerous.


The Bullmastiff is unquestionably one of the most intimidating dogs on the planet. This particular breed is known for being very obedient and loyal, but it can also be quite aggressive.

These dogs can grow up to 27 inches tall with a maximum weight of around 130 pounds. It is one of the best choices for those who want a dog to keep their home and family safe.

Perro de Presa Canario

The Perro de Presa Canario, often called a Canary Mastiff have been known to grow to very large proportions. They are normally friendly, they can be quite dangerous if they become violent.

Tibetan Mastiff

Tibetan Mastiffs are believed to be strong enough to kill a tiger and they look it. Anyone would want such an impressive dog for protection. Plus, their large size and abundance of fur make them look like behemoths.

Tibetan Mastiffs can be stubborn and difficult to control (this is made worse by their intelligence). This dog is not recommended for newbie dog owners. However, they are highly protective and will usually show restraint before attacking a threat.

Pit Bulls

Their herding nature makes them incredibly defensive of their territory and the territory of their pack/family. For a trained individual who is protecting someone or something, they can be quite deadly given their overall strength and bite. They make great pets, but you probably need to lock them up when you have unfamiliar people over for afternoon tea.

German Shepherd

German Shepherds aren’t the biggest dogs in the world, but they are undoubtedly intimidating. They are fiercely loyal and protective, making them excellent for families.

These dogs do, however, have an aggressive nature that needs to be taken into consideration. They are fairly easy to train and make for excellent watch dogs.
