It is possible but i don't think it's the case 100 percent of the time. Sometimes it all lies within a dogs temperament/nature. Some dogs can be aggressive and for some it's impossible. I'll give you a good example. I have a golden retriever, Buddy. He lived most of his life in a cage, and we're teased by cats who used to walk by his cage..sort of like a "ha ha, your in there and I'm out here" kind of attitude. He is the sweetest dog and me and my boyfriend couldn't train him to be aggressive if we even tried. For the record, before you think I'm a heartless freak..i wasn't the owner who made him live in a cage. golden retrievers are just naturally nice, and non aggressive. I have a cat at home and you would think after telling you his story that he would hate cats. Him and mine get along fine..heck sometimes they even lay down together. Dogs that have it in the their nature to be aggressive could be triggered by events over there life, cause by the owner. Such as if you have a pit bull and you beat it...eventually it's gonna bite you back. And in some cases there nature kicks in and there aggressiveness comes out of no where.
