Myth 1: Rottweilers Are Naturally Vicious
First, let’s address the elephant in the room. Are Rottweilers really aggressive?
Well, the answer to that question is a bit complicated. It is true that Rottweilers are designed for being aggressive. There’s no denying the facts. These dogs have a recorded history of aggression, which we’ll get into a bit later.
However, it’s not as black and white as some people make it out to be. Those people who are opposed to so-called “aggressive” breeds only look at the headlines and completely ignore real-world experience.
It’s not hard to see why. Rottweilers are an easy target. They’re a medium-sized breed with a muscular body and strong jaw. At face value, they look very intimidating.
However, like all dogs, Rottweilers are a product of their environment.If the dog is loved and treated with care, then they will become a loyal and affectionate pup.
Studies have even found that pint-sized Chihuahuas are far more aggressive than Rottweilers! Talk about judging a book by its cover!
