Rottweiler

The Rottweiler was originally dogs bred to drive cattle to market. Later they were used to pull carts for butchers. They were among the earliest police dogs and serve with honour in the military.

Most important, they are popular family guardians and friends. Novice pet parents should beware, as these dogs are strong and intense. They need to be experienced care and training. Consistent, energetic pet parents will find a loving, faithful, and intelligent friend for life in a Rottie!
