Beside this, which dog breeds have lock jaw?

The infamous “locking jaw” myth hasbeen assigned to a variety of dog breeds, including theAmerican Staffordshire Terrier, Bulldog and Boxer, but it's exactlythat — a myth. No type of dog has been found tohave a mechanism that enables them to“lock” their top and bottom jawstogether.

One may also ask, do Chow Chows have lock jaw? Pits are dangerous due to their bite pressure andability to lock their jaws. Chows have a largecoat that causes missed bite attemps and are very agile with anability to turn their bodies.

The Cane Corso while not an inherently dangerousdog is an inherently independent, loyal and headstrong dog. Thesedogs NEED a very firm and dedicated owner to properly handlethem.

Can a Rottweiler beat a pitbull?

They can be dangerous too, but they're much lesslikely to just "snap" someday. I do not believe that a rott couldprotect you from a pitbull. Most dogs are not naturallyprotective. A pit bull can easily take down arottweiler, since rottweilers lack gameness and theagility pits possess.

He lives for his family and may become destructive ifleft alone too much. Cane Corso puppies should befriendly and trusting with strangers. I wouldn't keep a CaneCorso with another large dog of the same sex. The CaneCorso is more attentive to his owner and more responsive totraining than other mastiffs.
