There are no dangerous dog breeds but dangerous owners …
Having a pet implies a great responsibility, not only for the care that it should be given, including its diet and regular medical care. The treatment that is given and the education they receive is also of the utmost importance since their behavior depends on this, unfortunately, many do not see it that way and then they only judge and classify as “dangerous” or “brave”, not aware that the danger they are the same owners.
What we cannot deny is that the dog is man’s best friend, the ideal little animal as a pet, and another member of the family, not only for being extremely affectionate but also for being loyal and very protective.
There are them of different races, sizes, colors, and appearances, some can cause us tenderness at first glance while others seem quite imposing, causing fear in some people although we should think that appearances are sometimes deceiving, perhaps someone has one at home and you can comment how it really is.
Next, the most imposing dogs in the world, some fear them a lot, others respect them, others admire them and there are those who think that they were created by Satan himself, what do you think?
