What are the top 10 most powerful dogs? Here at 1stpetnaturals we were wondering that same question. So without further adieu, here is our list:

10. Great Dane

One of the greats in feats of strength is the Great Dane, also known as the German Mastiff. This big boy is not the tallest breed of dog on average, but on average a Great Dane holds the title at any given time. Besides holding down world records, the Great Dane combines its regal appearance with dignity, strength, and endurance.

9. American Bulldog

Stocky, well-built, powerful jaws—the American Bulldog is the original bad boy by name, but on average these dogs are social, confident, and ease with families; they bond strongly with their owners. Initially bred to be a working breed, the US bulldog subdivides into three different categories: the ‘Bully,’ the ‘Standard’ and the ‘Hybrid.’ They can handle any problem.

8. American Pit Bull Terrier

Being a cross between, as you might expect, a Pit Bull and a Terrier, the American Pit bull Terrier brings the unmistakable solid build of the terrier and infuses it with the raw, brute strength of the Pit Bull. Originally hailing from the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Scotland, these soldiers of the animal kingdom even had the strength to regularly fight alongside humans in WW1.

7. Pyrenean Mountain Dog

The original guardians; the Pyrenean Mountain dog have been used for thousands of years by Shepherds to move the herd and protect it. The males can grow up to 120 pounds of pure power. You may not notice those bulging muscles under that fluffy coat of fur, but they are there.

6. Irish Wolfhound

On average the tallest breed of dog. The Wolfhound is not actually a wolf, or related to one, but rather gets its name from the fact that it was commonly used to hunt wolfs. That’s right, this dog hunts wolves.

5. Leoburger

The Leonberger gets its name from the city of Leonberg, in Germany. It is not only a large dog, but meant to mimic the lion, the city’s crest. It has a double coat, a double scooping of muscle, and double the intelligence of some other breeds. The Leonberger has a dramatic presence not unlike that of the king of the animal kingdom.

4. St. Bernard

Originally bred for rescue, the St. Bernard is a very large breed of dog that, if it needs to, will help to push that large frame of yours out of harm’s way in the midst of the dangers present in their area of origin, the Swiss Alps. Reaching a whopping weight of 240+ lbs, this is the type of dog that can not only traverse mountains, it moves them.

3. Rottweiler

large dog

Originating in Germany as the aid of butchers, the Rottweiler is arguably the most feared breed on the block. They are used by police officers, search and rescue, and even

as guard and assist dogs for the blind. Their abundant strength is enough to scare away maliciousness, or even put some fright into a natural disaster.

2. Tibetan mastiff

In Mandarin Chinese ‘mastiff’ means ‘big ferocious dog’—and if you’ve ever seen one up close you might agree that is an apt description. These dogs are massive, they exhibit ne

arly unparalleled strength, and were tied up outside of houses much the same way that horses are. They don’t run; they gallop.

1. The Newfoundland

Weighing in between 130-150 lbs, the Newfoundland is considered a giant dog by classification, capable of pulling weights well in excess of a fully-grown human being. The biggest Newfoundland dog ever recorded was over 6 feet tall and weighed in at over 250lbs. Newfoundland’s have a double (water resistant) coat and webbed feet, making them the perfect companion for fishermen, either to bring onto their boat, or use to pull one.
