The Rottweiler’s ancestors were the drover’s dogs accompanying the herds the Romans brought with them when invading Europe. The controllable herding and guarding instincts were recognized by the Germans, and dogs were selectively bred for these traits. As the need for its services diminished, the Rottweiler almost fell into extinction. In the early 1900’s, a newly formed club established a breed standard. The breed has not appreciably changed since that time.
Rottweilers love their people and may behave in a clownish manner toward family and friends, but they are also protective of their territory and do not welcome strangers until properly introduced. Obedience training and socialization are musts. They require minimal grooming maintenance.
