There are many breeds that suites your needs such as Rottweilers, American Pitbulls, Doberman Pinschers and ... , but please note that they should be trained well otherwise they will be dangerous and hard to handle ! early training is advised.

There are quite a few to chose from – german shepherds, rottweilers, dobermans, and on and on…However, there are many differences within the breed. If you are wanting a dog for protection, I would strongly advise you to find a club in your area who actively train dogs using Schutzhund methods. That type of training gives the dog super confidence, but also makes sure that the dog is under YOUR control at all times. They can also guide you as far as chosing a breed and then the right puppy from that breed! Good Luck!

You are asking two diffrent questions..

The strongest dog is a ABPT or a Pitbull
They can pull HUGE amounts of weight, much more then their own body.

The best protector dog as far as alertness would probably be a German Shepherd Dog (GSD) or a Doberman. Both were used in herding and guarding.

If you have children or are planning on them I would go with a Doberman. I personally have a GSD in my family, and it’s only because thats what my fiance grew up with and loves, he wouldn’t be talked into a Doberman for any bribe *lol*
If you need a small dog, for apt life.. the best is a dachshund.. My dachshunds have excellent hearing and even alert me to people if they are in the back alley, which is outside and about 200 ft back from the house. They also have very deep chests, so the standards produce a “big dog” bark that most people are put off by because they sound like a much larger dog that means business.
