Breeds Defined as Fighting Breeds

Akita, American Pit-Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Cane Corso, Dogo Argentino, Dogue de Bordeaux, Juvasz, Presa Canario and Tosa Inu.


Powerful and potentially dangerous dogs such as Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Dobermann’s, Boxer’s and other “working” breeds are specifically excluded from this definition, because our aim is to eliminate dogs bred to fight; not herders, or guard-dogs. Fighting breeds are those dogs which have historically been bred for fighting other dogs or other animals, such as bull-baiting and bear-baiting.
