Most intimidating looking dog breeds
These dogs were bred to be workers, hunters and baiters.

What the news often neglects to report is whether there was a trigger for the aggression, so it’s difficult to say why the dog attacked.
The pit bull is descended from the English bull-baiting dog, which was bred to bite and hold massive animals such as bulls or bears.
These dogs were bred to be aggressive, tenacious and strong.
When bull-baiting was outlawed, breeders began crossing the bull-baiting dog with the terrier to make them quicker and more agile, which started the line of descent to the pit bull we know today.
