The Most Adorable Dog Breeds That May Have Destructive Behavior

It is undeniable that dogs are man’s best friend. However, some dog breeds can sometimes be more difficult to manage than others due to a variety of factors. In this article, we will introduce you to three adorable dog breeds that have a reputation for being able to display destructive behavior if not properly supervised.

German shepherd

A popular and intelligent breed

The German Shepherd is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world. Known for its intelligence, dynamism and loyalty, it is often described as a loyal, docile and obedient animal, as well as an affectionate pet. His sagacity earned him service in the army, in tandem with the police, or even for tracking and rescue missions. Soldiers of the First World War constantly praised the merits of this breed.

Potentially destructive without proper education

However, like any intelligent and active dog, German Shepherds need intellectual stimulation and to expend their energy. Without it, they may engage in destructive behavior. Among the problems encountered by inattentive or lax owners, we note:

  • destruction of objects in the house
  • excessive barking
  • aggression towards other animals or humans

In order to prevent these behaviors, it is essential to provide sufficient time for the education and physical exercise of the German Shepherd, as well as providing him with an enriching environment in which he can develop.


Small but brave

Chihuahuas are funny, courageous and adorable dogs. Despite their small size, they are capable of exhibiting a lot of personality, determination and bravery that one might think is disproportionate for their size. Because of their fun appearance and antics, they are often depicted in popular culture as endearing and comical.

Need a firm hand

However, Chihuahuas also tend to develop destructive and uncontrollable behavior if they are not trained firmly from the start. Among the harmful behaviors that can occur:

  • growls and bites
  • unwanted barking
  • jealousy of other animals

To avoid this kind of behavior, it is important not to give in to the Chihuahua and to impose strict limits on him from the start. In addition, early socialization is essential so that the dog can learn to coexist peacefully with other animals and humans.

American Bully

A muscular and endearing dog

The American Bully is a medium-sized, muscular, athletic and powerful dog, which has a reputation for being intelligent, affectionate and very attached to its owner. However, this breed is not yet recognized in France or internationally, which can make their adoption controversial.

Destructive potential without supervision

Without training adapted to their needs, these dogs can develop undesirable behaviors such as:

  • destruction of objects and furniture
  • aggression towards other animals or people
  • cleanliness problems in the house

It is therefore crucial to devote time to their education, daily physical exercise and socialization to prevent their behavior from becoming harmful.

What attitude should you adopt?

If you are considering adopting a German Shepherd, Chihuahua or American Bully, it is important to learn about their specific training, exercise and socialization needs. If you are willing to invest the time and effort into caring for these intelligent and endearing animals, you will have a loyal and loving companion by your side.
