Bulli Kutta (Asian Dogs Banned in Other Countries)

All the dogs are unique in themselves and have special characteristics, Some dogs are better for police, military or search operations, while some dogs are best for personal protection. Dogs are our most reliable companions, almost all dogs make a good pet- if they are properly trained and socialized at a young age. But some dog breeds have been banned in other countries, which is a debatable question.

Dogs do what they are taught and if they have been trained for dogfights and for personal protection, they reflect that nature in general. And it is also true that the behavior of dogs varies from breed to breed and some dogs are relatively more aggressive, dominant and willful. And due to being over protective nature, they are aggressive or suspicious toward strangers and reflect Animal-aggression, and complaints of dog fight are higher for them.

In some countries, they are identified as Potential Dangerous Dogs, and require special permission to keep them. In USA, Canada and some other countries you must be 21 years old and the amount of liability insurance must be 100 000 $.
