The Rottweiler originated in Germany and was used as a cattle drover and guardian of the home. When cattle driving was outlawed in the mid-19th century, the Rottweiler breed almost became extinct. But around 1900, fans of the breed revived it and by the 1930s it was competing in AKC competitions. It has remained a popular competitor and companion animal ever since.
Today Rottweilers still hold true to their guardian roots, as they are confident, bold, alert, and imposing. They are often still used as guardians of the home and because they are very protective of family and often wary of strangers, they do the job well. But despite their domineering look and personality, these dogs are not always the aggressive dogs people make them out to be. They are wonderful companions that can be sweet, nurturing, and fun-loving.
Because these dogs are quite strong and active, they need to lead an active lifestyle. Families who can take them on long walks or jogs daily, as well as allow them a fun play session outdoors are the best fit for this breed. Apartment dwellers would not be ideal, as well as those without a fenced in yard for the dog to play in. One of the best way to give these dogs the ability to focus on their sweet, nurturing side instead of their aggressive, destructive side is to give them plenty of exercise. A tired dog is a happy dog and a happy dog makes a happy living environment.
Some of the most common health concerns associated with this breed are hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, heart problems, bone cancer, and gastric torsion. All of these conditions are expensive to treat and can put a financial strain on the dog owner. Pet insurance is one way that Rottweiler owners can feel confident in their choice of breed, because they know that they will be covered financially if any of these ailments affect their pet.
Rottweilers stand between 22 and 27 inches tall and weigh between 80 and 135 pounds, depending on gender.
They have a coarse, smooth, short coat that is black with tan markings. Taking care of their coat is quite easy, as long as it is occasionally brushed to remove dead hair. These dogs live to be between eight and 11 years old.
