Black Russian Terrier

He was developed in 1957 by Russia's State owned Red Star Kennel as a police guard dog to be used for protection (he originally wasn't bred for "looks" only ability)
Some puppies were then sold to civilian breeders who bred him for "looks" as well as working ability
The Giant Schnauzer, Airedale Terrier, and Rottweiler were heavily used in his development among 17 other breeds
