Of course, even the most bad-ass canine can be taken down by sufficient
strength:

"Herakles asked Pouton [Haides] for Kerberos, and was told to take the hound if
he could overpower it without using any of the weapons he had brought with him.
He found Kerberos at the gates of Akheron, and there, pressed inside his armour
and totally covered by the lion's skin, he threw his arms round its head and
hung on, despite bites from the serpent-tail, until he convinced the beast with
his choke-hold. Then, with it in tow, he made his ascent through Troizen. After
showing Kerberos to Eurystheus, he took it back to Haides' realm." -
Apollodorus, The Library 2.125

or cleverness:

"Huge Cerberus, monstrously couched in a cave confronting them, made the whole
region echo with this three-throated barking. The Sibyl, seeing the snakes
bristling upon his neck now, threw him for bait a cake for honey and wheat
infused with sedative drugs. The creature, crazy with hunger, opened its three
mouths, gobbled the bait; then its huge body relaxed and lay, sprawled out on
the ground, the whole length of its cave kennel. Aeneas, passing its entrance,
the watch-dog neutralize, strode rapidly from the bank of that river [Styx] of
no return." - Virgil, Aeneid 6.417

There's a security-related moral somewhere in there. :)
