Top 5 Banned Dogs that are ILLEGAL to Own

Dogs are man’s best friend but, they were not always like this. Some descendants of wolves never really got domesticated as well as others. That’s why we ended up with friendly breeds such as the Golden Retriever and ones as deadly as the Bully kutta. Many dog species are actually banned in certain countries because of how aggressive they can be and that’s why today we are counting down the top 5 of them.

5.) Bully Kutta

The Bully Kutta is also known as the beast from the east because of its origins in Pakistan. This breed has the most fearsome reputation since they were bred for hunting and guarding. However and sadly, nowadays people use them for illegal dog fighting. Their size and aggression make them popular as fighting dogs but that also means they are regularly mistreated. Because of their aggression, only experienced trainers can handle Bully Kuttas well but unfortunately, they cannot turn this dog into family pets.

4.) The Doberman.

When people talk about scary dogs, they usually look for a doberman since they were initially bred to be intimidating. The biggest reason for their aggression is the need to protect their owners. The Doberman’s loyalty is exactly what makes them so dangerous but so loveable at the same time. These dogs never hesitate to attack anyone they might even suspect to be of small threat. That explains why they have been banned in 16 states. If not trained right, the Doberman will definitely take matters into its own jaws and make sure you are safe. For all these reasons and more, this dog has found relevance in military and police forces.

3.) Rhodesian ridgeback

Also known as the African lion hound, the Rhodesian ridgeback originated in Africa where they were used to hunt lions. They are a strong and muscular breed of the hound family, easily identified by their brown furs. This breed is so strong and determined that they were used to kill apex predators. Despite their lineage, Rhodesian ridgebacks have a pretty even temperament as long as they are kept engaged and stimulated. They also have high energy levels so they should never be left alone with children without supervision. Another time they get super aggressive is when young children get near their food. It’s in their drive to protect their food and since their prey drive is very high, they might mistake kids for small prey.

2.) Chow Chow.

Chow Chows might look like a very huggable breed but they are actually very assertive beings. They’re quite the fuzz ball, i mean, who wouldn’t love them? While in fact this breed is known as a high risk pet since they were about 238 attacks between 1979 and 1998, they are very protective of their owners and definitely act out when they are not given the proper training or the right environment. Some chow chows are shy, others are extremely outgoing and confident, hence it’s difficult to know what you’ll get with this breed. Some also have more aggressive behaviour that many states require the owners to carry special insurance in case things go wrong. These furry dogs can reach up to 70 pounds and if they don’t get the physical stimulation they require, they might attack anyone, even their owner.

1.) Perro De Presa Canario.

The Presa Canario is a breed whose ancestry includes some input from the now extinct bardario mahero as well as an input from the English Mastiff. Despite their very daunting appearance, these dogs are not aggressive by nature. However, that also doesn’t mean you should just go over and pet them. Although these dogs are incredibly calm and collected, they do get jittery around strangers and unknown animals. They are very headstrong and strong willed, with high energy and high prey drive, which makes them difficult dogs to deal with. For this reason, this breed is not for inexperienced owners.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH SPORTS JOURNALIST ‘ Ilyes Kaddouri ‘

JOURNALIST : What motivated you to get into sports journalism?

I have been passionate about football since I was very young, and very quickly, my daily life was punctuated only by this sport. Between watching football matches, playing football, and debriefing matches with friends, football has taken an important place in my life. Naturally, I decided to combine business with pleasure and give myself the means to practice this profession.

JOURNALIST : What team are you currently supporting?

I am a supporter of Real Madrid, already very small, I was amazed in front of the attacking trio Zidane, Ronaldo, Raùl. I then had the chance to watch the BBC, another trio that made history.

JOURNALIST : It is often said that Ligue 1 “Uber eats” is below other major leagues, what do you think?

It is true that in terms of European performance, France is a notch below behind Spain, England, Germany and Italy, despite sometimes great epics in the Champions League and Europa League. But I think that in terms of intensity and level of play in the league 1 championship, France has nothing to envy to foreigners. In my opinion, the French midfield is stronger than that of Spain or Germany, I would even say that it is more difficult to go for a victory in Angers rather than in Elche, Burnley or Bochum.

JOURNALIST : What is your opinion on the latest edition of the France Football Golden Ball and its winner?

In all objectivity, I did not understand the ranking, and sometimes I wonder if voters watch even 10 games in the year. Benzema was not on the podium despite an extraordinary season, Messi ahead of Lewandowski, Edouard Mendy absent from the TOP30, so many decisions that I don’t understand.

As for his winner, Messi did not steal it because he still had a decent year, but he was eliminated in the 1/8 finals in the Champions League and finished 3rd in his championship. I think Lewandowski would have been more deserving.

JOURNALIST : Zidane or Guardiola?

These two coaches have marked the history of football and it is important to know that they respect each other enormously. Pep even said in a press conference that he really hoped to be able to have dinner with Zidane one day.

I think Guardiola through his philosophy of play, and his relationship with young players has inspired many more coaches around the world.

As for my opinion, if I were club president, I would favor Zidane because he achieved an unprecedented performance by winning 3 Champions Leagues, the most prestigious competition in the world in just 2 and a half years. Before talking about the tactical system, Zidane brings a grinta and anger to his players in order to establish the culture of winning. But to answer this question as objectively as possible, it would be wise to wait for Zidane to coach a club other than Real Madrid, which is his birthplace.

JOURNALIST : If you had the opportunity to change something in today’s football, what would it be?

Football has its charm with its pros and cons, so the only idea that comes to mind would be ‘extra-sporty’. Indeed, football is a sport based on pleasure and fair play so I will eliminate racism as well as fights between supporters.

JOURNALIST : What do you think of the football press in France?

We tend to often complain and criticize in France. But the truth is that the football press in France is doing well, there is a real economy around it. They are often described as “too mean”, yet I did not notice any surge of hatred on the side of all the media after the elimination of PSG in the Champions League or even after the elimination of the French team in Euro 2020. Aguero was recently seen insulting French journalists as “assholes” after criticism of Messi. But the truth is that most sports journalists do their job and simply report the news. Messi is undoubtedly the greatest player in history, he has only scored 3 goals after 33 league 1 days, the media have the right to draw conclusions on the situation.

JOURNALIST : In your opinion, should Kyllian Mbappé stay in France at Paris Saint Germain?

It all depends on which side you are on, for PSG, and the French championship, of course it would be excellent news for a player of this caliber to stay.

JOURNALIST : To conclude, in the future what could we wish for you?

Success, whether personal or professional, as well as health.

Benny The Butcher Butchers Tye Harris’ Name

Benny the Butcher made mention of this phenom during a recent interview with Ebro Darden. But he called him Tye Ferris and not Tye Harris. Though it was an honest mistake it led viewers to wonder, Who Is Tye Harris? When you hear recording artist Tye Harris of Dallas, Texas you imagine hearing an eclectic mix of Hip-Hop, R&B, Rock, Jazz and even operatic elements, however when you see Tye Harris you are instantly impressed with who he is. Growing up in Dallas certainly shaped him into the artist that he is. Burgeoning from the impoverished Areas of the city certainly inspired him to see the world differently than his everyday peers. Through his development, music became the soul food for nurturing his environment. Music is his love language. When you speak with Tye Harris (not only about music) you are impressed with his confidence, wisdom, and outlook. You get an opportunity to witness the maturation of a true artist.

His current single “Asphalt and Concrete” is an ode to him leaving the thought processes of surviving the streets and him making the conscious effort to start thriving in his life. Thriving by going to the next level as an artist. Tye has begun working on his first global commercial album release with the assistance of My Coterie Production Studios, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, Chris Godbey, and many more. This project will be poignant, full of depth, and sonically unique. There is no other way for Tye Harris to be.
