The Most Dangerous Dog Breeds in the World

#25: Cane Corso

The Cane Corso was originally bred in Italy as a guard dog and to hunt big game. They are powerful and athletic, and absolutely need room to run. If you don’t have a large, fenced-in yard, this breed is not for you.


What makes the Cane Corso potentially dangerous is its sheer size (a full grown male can weigh up to 120 pounds) and the fact that it has been bred over the years to carry out aggressive tasks such as hunting and guarding property.
