Rottweiler - Dogs
|Back To Category Dogs|
The Rottweiler is a medium to large size breed of domestic dog. The dogs were known as "Rottweil Metzgerhund - butchers dog" because they were used to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat and other products to market.
The Rottweiler was employed in its traditional roles until the mid-19th century when railways replaced droving for getting livestock to market. While still used in herding, Rottweilers are now also used as search and rescue dogs, as guide dogs for the blind, as guard dogs or police dogs, and in other roles.
The Rottweiler has a muscular, massive, powerful body and a head that is broad with a rounded forehead. The teeth meet in a scissors bite and the lips are black.
The Rottie is powerful, calm, trainable, loyal, protective, courageous, and devoted to their owner and family, they will defend their family fiercely if needed and are seemingly immune to pain.
Rottweilers love playing catch in the back yard, tagging along for a morning run or taking a big hike in the woods. They crave attention and companionship from their owners. Without it, they tend to get bored and destructive.
