These were used daily to herd cattle during the time that the army would be traveling. And then during the night the drovers would be left to watch over the soldiers while they slept and would alert them if troubled surfaced.

But it was during the travels of Caesar that some of the drovers were left in areas of Germany and natives there adopted them. The Germans ended up breeding the dogs to help them with jobs that they needed help with since this breed did so well for the soldiers. It was actually in the town of Rottweil, Germany where this breed got its name, as this is the place where the dog became known as the butcher's dog.

With the Rottweiler pulling carts and barges, it seemed that they were suddenly irreplaceable but that thought soon came to an end with the introduction of the railroad. Now, without a job, the fate of the was not looking too great and there was fear they would soon cease to exist.

But then, in 1910, the Rottweiler was recognized as a police dog and helped not only the police on the streets but also did their part in World War II.
