The Tosa Inu is a Japanese Mastiff and is known to be one of the most aggressive dogs in the world. In some parts of the UK and Ireland, you can’t own this dog without a license to show you can handle it. Its temper towards humans (strangers in particular) and other animals is legendary.

So why the aggression? It was bred to be a fighter. Yakuza (Japanese Mafia) use Tosa Inus in dogfighting tournaments even today.

Looking at the Akita’s head, you’d think it’s a cross between a wolf and a bear, which is very frightening. These dogs originated in ancient Japan, where they served as companions for samurai. Akitas are considered to be dangerous and hardy breeds.

They don’t like strangers and will attack them on site. But they are also good and affectionate with children, especially when trained. Any Mafia wouldn’t hesitate to leave their family under this dog’s protection.
