The canine is the man’s best friend for many reasons. Whether it’s loyalty, compassion, or defensiveness, you can always count on your dog no matter what size or breed it is.

However, that’s not always the case when it comes to coexisting with other animals.

While some dogs love nothing more than a companionship with cats, birds, and ferrets, there are certain breed that simply can’t stand sharing their owner’s love and affection with other pets. In that name, here are 12 dog breeds that absolutely hate other pets.

1. Akita Inu

Sure, we all know Akita Inu as one of the most lovable and cute dogs in the world.

But once you take its dominant nature into account, you’ll realize why this breed is a bad choice if you already own a pet.

As far as difficult-to-raise breeds go, the Akita could easily take the crown – it’s not uncommon for this breed to display dominance by disobeying orders, which can be really dangerous if other pets are involved.

A dog that’s mostly used for deer and bear hunting in its homeland of Japan can certainly be a great companion if trained right. On the other hand, we can guarantee the Akita is not a dog you’ll want around your other pets if you don’t the time and the will to train it.

Individual cases don’t tell the whole story. Pit Bulls kill ( and maim) more people and pets than any other breed by a long shot. Look at the statistics, and then, the science. They have been bred for thousands of generations to have the physical and personality characteristics of killers. Just as border collies were bred for thousands of generations to be expert herders, Bichons to be people-centered cuddlers etc.. You can only train any dog to do what you want to a certain point. For a pit, it only takes one incident, one attack to lead to a dreadful… Read more »

We must have an exceptional Boxer as he has the sweetest disposition, loves playing with the other dogs and nuzzling the cats.

Dont know where you get your info from. 1st Ridgebacks were never used to or capable of taking down a lion. Hunters used them to track Lions, and then they would keep them at bay. No dog will ever be able to take down a lion.
Second. Ridgebacks are extremely good with other dogs and also good with cats. We have been breeding them since 1989, no fights with other dogs, various breeds, going to dog parks etc regularly. They play with all the other dogs, no issue…
Ridgebacks are extremely social.
