Often called 'Bully Breeds', dogs such as Pitbulls, Rottweilers etc are often considered to be perennially difficult and aggressive. They have a quick temper, and can get violent and moody, specially when disturbed while eating, if not trained properly from the very start. Even now, the ferocious breed is used mostly for police and military squads, though Rottweilers are also a common domestic pet choice.
