The Most Popular Breeds of Fighting Dogs

Dogs were first trained to fight hundreds of years ago. Dogs are quick learners and can adopt fighting behavior easily and speedily, unlike most other animals. First of all, dogs were trained to fight large animals such as bears, tigers and lions. Later, they were taught to find against one another. This is where the concept of dog fighting comes in. Dogs fight in the wild over mates and territory and some breeds are naturally more aggressive than others.

In ancient times, dog fighting was very popular and a common pastime. It was considered by many moralists to be cruel and highly immoral so, after a while, dog fighting was banned. It still took place illicitly but, if caught, those involved in the organization of dog fighting events would be jailed or heavily fined. There are still people arranging dog fights today and these people are considered dangerous.

There are many different breeds of dog, in all shapes and sizes, that can be trained and used for fighting. The most commonly known fighting dogs are these:

American Pit Bull Terrier

The American Pit Bull Terrier, or APBT, is a pit bull breed. These dogs are tough and loyal and considered to be fighting dogs for those reasons. They like people and enjoy training. They are also curious and intelligent which makes them a good family dog. American Pit Bull Terriers do tend to show aggression to other dogs and this makes them a good fighting breed.

Old English Bulldog

The Old English Bulldog is another well known breed of fighting dog. This is a rare breed and has a very unique appearance. The Old English Bulldog has a muscular, broad body and is about 16 inches high. It has a strong lower jaw and can be used for dog fighting or bull fighting because its jaw is like a vice grip.


The Rottweiler is a robust and sturdy working dog which descents from a breed of Roman cattle dog. They were introduced in Rottweil, Germany, back in the Middle Ages. A Rottweiler is considered a great guard dog because it attacks intruders and barks. It is a tall dog and strong enough to knock a large man to the ground and hold him there. The Rottweiler is the most valued and most recognized fighting dog.

There are many other fighting dog breeds but nearly all of them are used for security purposes these days, either in the military forces or guarding a property or home.
