8 Dogs That Are Banned in Different Countries
Many countries in the world regulate certain dog breeds. This happens due to their potential danger to society and aggressiveness. They are banned completely or restricted 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 criminal record and a psychological certification.
We at Bright Side found out which breeds are banned and restricted the most. But we strongly believe that there are no aggressive dogs, there is just improper upbringing. And even though they are considered dangerous, we think they can be lovely furballs in a loving family.
8. Presa Canario
Although Rottweilers are actively used in rescue operations, serve on police forces, and herd cattle perfectly, 10 countries consider them dangerous. In reality, they are confident guard dogs and playful fluffies.
6. 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.
5. Staffordshire Bull Terrier
This doggie is one of the dog-fighting breeds. Despite this, they are friendly and tender pups and recommended as family dogs. But 12 countries worldwide think the opposite and have either prohibited or restricted them.
4. Brazilian Mastiff
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 restrictions and can have loving owners.
1. Pit Bull
These cuties are at the top of the list. 24 countries restrict or prohibit 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 dangerous? Do you have a doggie? What breed is it?
