Myth 2: Rottweilers Are All Bark and No Bite
Now, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the cold hard facts. There’s a reason why Rottweilers have gained the reputation they have. It’s because these dogs are fully capable of being violent.
Several bad eggs have done a lot to give the breed notoriety.
Since 1982, Rottweilers have been involved in over 700 serious attacks. Over fifty percent of those attacks involved children. Over 100 of the attack victims died because of the injuries that Rottweilers caused.
Those facts are grim. There’s no denying that. Along with Pit Bulls, Rottweilers are involved in more than 70 percent of all human deaths from dog attacks. High-profile cases have made the news due to their gruesome details.
Rottweiler lovers don’t want to take into account these cases, but they do exist. Rottweilers have the ability to become aggressive when provoked.
