    I agree that too many people believe they are vicious....obviously some are, but do you notice that all the incidents involving such dogs are from rough families who get the dog for the tough angry dad whose face look like the dogs...not the nice families who take the dog for lots of exercise so it doesnt get wound up easily. Rotweillers were bred for the purpose of being a guard dog so it is inbred to fight anything that moves and it is usually the ones that are so purebred theyre inbred that are so neurotic and they are the ones that attack people. With the right upbringing and influences im sure they can be lovely, because a friend of mine has a dobermann who is a complete softy. Just so you know, i think theyre awesome dogs and i want one when im older!

    It's generally unfair that pets are sometimes given blame when actually the way they are brought up made them that way.
    Really, though, the same is the case with many 'bad people' who were brought up terribly and turned out even worse. They are given the blame/responsibility of their acts too.

    I guess this discussion could be taken pretty far!

    Are you getting mixed up with Pitbulls?. I ask that as you made a reference to Staffies in your post.

    EDIT: I see you have amended your post, sorry :P

    that's going really deep but it is true no matter what animal or person if they have a hard upbringing it's definately going to affect their future behaviour

    yes they are amazing dogs but i guess its all down to people's personal opinion and their experiences in my case i think rottweilers are amazing because i have one but i guess that's quiete bias.

    Totally agree - it's down to the way they're treated etc. I have a one year old rottweiler (he's a cross with something else, not entirely sure what) but he's such a loveable character and not at all like people tend to think all rottweilers are. He's gorgeous and seriously the laziest dog ever

    True. My aunt has a Rottie who's one of the softest dogs in world and thinks she's the size of the family cat lol. People just see how big she is and think she's going to be aggressive, which is silly imo. It's usually the small dogs you have to watch out for.
