Pit Bulls are considered as aggressive dogs who are more likely to attack humans and other animals. However, studies suggest that Rottweiler is more aggressive than a Pit Bull.

Rottweiler’s are mostly kept in isolation and are tied with chains. They have separate kennels that are locked so that they do not unnecessarily harm others.

When a Pit Bull and a Rottweiler are brought together, the Rottweiler will overpower the Pit Bull due to his aggression.


There is no mistaking a Rottweiler for any other dog. They distinctly wear a tan and black coat with a unique mask that highlights the eyebrow and muzzle area with a different color.

The outer coat of the body is distinctly pure black while the under areas and limbs are tannish-brown in color making them a very identifiable dog. If you’re unsure about the coat, the stern look in his eye will confirm his breed identity.

This is not the case with the Pitbull. The Pitbull sees many variations and many crossbreeds can easily be incorrectly identified as a Pitbull.

The Pitbull (American Pitbull Terrier) has a medium size and a stocky low slung body. Consisting mostly of muscle, people often feel afraid of this dog for its daunting figure.

Both dogs sport a shorter haircoat and that’s where the similarity ends.

The coat of the Rottie is slightly longer and much softer. Pitbull has a coat that is stiff and likened to paintbrush bristles.

Because of the guarding reflex built into his DNA, a Rottweiler is not as social. He visually appears unsure about strangers. You are likely to feel his stare and invite some barking from dogs of this breed.

Even though the Rottweiler enjoys cuddling with his owner, his favorite pass-time is patrolling his premises. This is to ward off intruders and make his presence felt!

On the other hand, Pitbulls are not so aggressive or suspicious of strangers despite rumors.

Given the opportunity, he will gladly play games with you and welcome a stranger into his home. Not such a great guard dog quality is it? That’s why he is most popular as a family companion.

When raised properly from puppyhood, a Pitbull can be gentle and loving. But when given a hard life and abuse, they can become aggressive out of fear.
