Just a disclaimer. These are the kind of dog’s that will have you sued in a minute. There’s nothing wrong with having an inclination to risky behaviors, but these are the kind of dogs that call for extra caution.

This dog breeds are very powerful. But in-case they bite you, be prepared for some problems. Also, this is not the apartment type. There is an instance in San Francisco  where it is said that a couple of these Presa Canarios killed a neighbor.

So, we’re now going to have a look at this breeds that are ideal for folks who lead a life that is all alone.

Caucasian Shepherd

This type comes with a coat that is quite heavy and has the appearance of a rugged bear. They can come in various sizes, but they are basically quite big, and the male versions have a weight that starts at 110 pounds and can go even higher.

They’re very great at guard. However, they will not have the consciousness to listen to what the owner is telling them. They’re known to be territorial and an aggressive breed. This thrives in areas where you have livestock and need a dog to guard them against bears and wolves. They also thrive in guarding property.

Neapolitan Mastiff

This one here has a growl that can be quite scary. It has been owned and made to serve as a guard dog because of its size. The male often reaches 150 pounds. These dogs have a fierce appearance.

It’s a favorite among families who want to have a guard dog. They are not really happy about having strangers in their territory. Even if a Neapolitan Mastiff is socialized with others, the dog may still up and bite those who may want to get to the area that he is guarding.

Cane Corso

This breed comes a bit smaller as compared to the Neapolitan Mastiff, which is a cousin. However, it is a lot far athletic and is also quite strong. It was used by humans to to watch over cattle and to also hunt for wild boar.

This is a breed that lives okay alone but it also needs to be socialized early and has go have good training. It does the best that it can do when he has a job on hand but it can be easily distracted. This breed has not been banned yet though it is still fairly a new breed. The first time that it was introduced to the US was in 1987.

Presa Canario

This breed comes as a smaller version of all of the other breeds that can live with little dogs or people around. However, you can describe it as just like a Pit Bull but only on steroids. It’s very athletic and can move around like how a cat would.

For the males, they can weigh much and reach around 160 pounds. They were bred with being shepherds in mind, however they cannot be able to fulfill their duty as shepherd if they become too big.

Fila Brasileiro

This a great deterrent for salesmen who come knocking at doors. It’s large, with a build that is stocky and a head that is quite big. It is also quite appreciative of solitude.

This breed thrives well in households with a lot of visitors. It needs to be well socialized, but even that is no guarantee. This breed is one of those that have been affected by the policy known as the Breed Specific Legislation which is in place in the UK and some other countries. You cannot have this dog as a guard for your home or your property if you are actually living in those areas covered by the policy.

As a word of caution, keep in mind that none of this dogs should be handled by a handler that is quite new to his craft. If you like living alone or have no choice but to live alone, these dogs will keep people off the property.
