[tab title=”DESCRIPTION”] The Rottweiler is a muscular, athletic, extremely powerful dog with a broad head and rounded forehead. The body is slightly longer than high, with a level topline. The muzzle is slightly shorter than the back skull. The short black coat has clearly defined rust-colored markings over each eye and on the cheeks, throat, chest, lower legs, and under the tail. The triangular ears are pendant and the nose is wide and black. The lips are black and the inside of the mouth is dark colored. Though often born with rear dewclaws, these are usually removed when the tail is docked. [/tab]

Firm and careful training is essential for this breed, otherwise you might wind up with a very powerful and overly aggressive dog. Requires a dominant, experienced owner. A natural guard dog with a mellow temperament [/tab]
[tab title=”HISTORY”] The Rottweiler, though probably descended from mastiffs accompanying the Roman legions, was named for the German town of Rottweiler where the breed was used by butchers to drive herds of cattle. The butchers fastened their money belts around the dogs’ necks, because their earnings would be completely safe there. When railroads made cattle driving obsolete, the Rottweiler almost disappeared. These versatile dogs found new roles in the early 1900s as guards and police dogs. Their calm temperament also makes them suitable as family guardians and companions. Today, the Rottweiler is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. [/tab]
