Rottweilers, or Rottweil Metzgerhund ("Butchers Dog"), are a large breed that originated in Germany as a herding dog. The Rottweiler is a hardy and very intelligent breed. Rottweilers were used as working dogs to pull carts that carried products to the market. They were also used for hunting.
Rottweiler breeders aim for a dog with a lot of strength. Rottweilers have a black coat with clearly defined rich tan markings, whose powerful appearance does not lack nobility. The Rottweiler is exceptionally well suited to being a companion and a working dog.
The Rottweiler was kept busy in the traditional roles of herding and hunting until the mid-19th century when railroads made transport a lot simpler. Although there are still Rottweilers working all over the world, many other roles have been found for this versatile breed.
During the First and Second World Wars, Rottweilers were put into service in various roles including as messenger, draught, and guard dogs. Currently they are often used as search and rescue, assistance, guide dogs for the blind, guard and police dogs in addition to their traditional roles of being pets and companions.
