#6 – Australian Cattle Dog
The Australian Cattle Dog is a herding breed used for keeping cattle under control, which means they have very strong temperaments and are very confident dogs. The breed can be very difficult to handle for the novice owner and often end up in the shelter because the person received far more dog than they had intended.
#7 – Dalmatian
The Dalmatian is a working dog from Croatia, bred as a carriage dog. They are very strong, active and excitable dogs that need a lot of activity and training to remain mannered houseguests. Dalmatians are beautiful, but they are a lot to handle and many owners don’t realize how much dog they’re getting until it’s too late.
#8 – Akita
The Akita is a large Japanese dog with a striking appearance and a temperament most owners aren’t prepared to live with. They are very aloof and wary of strangers, loyal to their owners and protective of their property. The breed is very independent and does not tolerate too much attention, so caution should be taken with children.
#9 – Weimaraner
The Weimaraner is a very active German hunting dog with a coat color that is undeniably beautiful. Unfortunately, just how powerful and active these dogs are isn’t realized by the owner until it’s too late. Weimaraners need a substantial amount of exercise and training to keep them stimulated and easy to live with in the house and they are often too robust to be around children.
#10 – Airedale Terrier
The Airedale is the largest of the terriers and has been used as both a hunting and working dog. The breed is intelligent and independent, often deemed as stubborn, and can be difficult to manage for the novice owner.
