It depends on how they are trained.

I've had both of these dogs before but i think the German Shepard is faster but the rottweiler is stronger especially my rottweiler she was a German Rottweiler twice as big as the American rottweiler, id have to go with the rottweiler though.
Answer by susmeister
GSD is an intelligent dog and so is rottweiler, not as GSD but still it is intelligent enough. GSD maybe faster than rottweiler but rottweiler is stronger, heavier and has more bite size than GSD. also rottie has a thick neck and they know how to use their weight. if say if every they encounter each other, I bet rottie would come out on top. SAY NO TO DOG FIGHTS

Answer by Annonymous
Caucasian shepherd would win every fight. It's the strongest of all dog breeds.
Answer by Jack Woods
Peter Griffin: a Rottweiler is a Molosser. Anonymous: if the Caucasian Shepherd would win every fight then they'd be in the professional dog rings where there is no weight limit and there is no money limit: the best fighting dogs in the world are Pit Bulls. A Caucasian Shepherd can certainly beat some Pit Bulls, especially if it is very cold and there is a wide area for it to move about and it has enough size advantage; still, no dog of any breed can beat the world-class Pit Bulls in the pit. That's why the dope dealers and gangsters spend and bet tens of thousands of dollars on Pits.
Pits can get large as well and have the strongest bite of any dog, but it is more about technique and hardness. Strong Pits won't release until they are physically disabled: you can pepper spray them, tase them, even hit them with tire tools and shoot them: There are videos of them doing all these things and the dog still holds on until it is physically unable due to injuries.

Answer by Jay
It depends on the dog. I Had a rottweiler that was not over 90 pounds and would kill anything in its way in a second and I have rottweiler now over a 100 pounds and it will lick you to death . So it's like people from different races. Some are aggressive and mean and some are passive and friendly. You can't pick a breed it's in the makeup of the dog itself.

Answer by SC
A few years ago on Animal Planet, they took a test on 4 dogs on powerfulness in the bite, so I would say Rottweiler because of the damage. I'm not sure about speed, that would be determined by the individual dog. Overall I say Rottweiler, because bite, but it would be close because I think the German Shepherd could pin the Rottweiler, so now I think about I'm not exactly sure, but I'll pick Rottweiler and German Shepherd a close second.=)
Answer by Peter Griffin
Oh my god… These questions are beginning to bug me…. it's like watching bad reality TV….
both breeds are not as good as effective "manstoppers" in my opinion as they are undersized compared to Molossers.
Both are under 100lbs, maybe rottie tops out at 110 if it's from large stock…. SO neither is an effective "fighter" in my opinion, and both would be destroyed by say a Tosa Inu, Presa Canario, or absolutely by a Boerboel.
Rottweiler wins due to it possessing what is known in the dog world as "gameness". Its original purpose was closer to fighting than the shepherds….. plus it's stronger and usually will weigh 20lbs more or so.

I have 2 GSD a Male King Size GSD and a Female,
from exp i can say that it will all come down for what reason the GSD is Fighting,
GSD’s courage is unquestionable and will go head to head with any dog kangal or a chow chow the GSD doesn’t know fear, but GDS’s are super clever and if they are only fighting for dominance i the the rottie will win because it is more aggressive but if a GSD is fighting to protect his owner or family i can say and coming from experience the GSD will give the rottie the fight of its life and would have a bigger chance of winning the fight because the GSD will fight the end. and female GSD can be more aggressive than male when it comes to defending family.
My king GSD went head to head with a cane corso trying to defend my son and my GSD did an amazing job of keeping my child safe till i arrived.
