When you think of a Rottweiler, what usually comes to mind? Sharp teeth? Dog attacks? Blood? More often than not, when we hear about Rottweilers, we think of a Rottweiler attacking a child or adult, causing extensive injuries. It would be safe to say that more than should be, Rottweilers tend to get a bad rep. Perhaps this is because Rottweilers have been featured as vicious or evil dogs in several movies and television shows, including the famous movie, The Omen. This has increased their negative reputation as a bred.

But then again, Lethal Weapon 3 showed the positive traits of the Rottweiler, with one featured as a pet to the character played by Mel Gibson. Rottweilers have some wonderful traits and characteristics and can make excellent pets. Described as "a calm, confident, and courageous dog with a self-assured aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships" by the AKC Standard, Rottweilers tend to reflect their environment in terms of their personalities.
