The Rottweiler is a medium to large dog, with a broad Mastiff-like face, powerful jaws, powerful neck, shoulders and chest, and robust build. They are black with beautifully symmetric rust markings. The males are much larger than the females; the females should look powerful but distinctly feminine.

The Rottweiler is a powerful and loyal dog with protective instincts, making for an excellent companion and protector. The breed requires a great deal of responsibility, however, as its intelligence and excessive strength can be very dangerous if not controlled by a experienced master. Some Rottweilers may be good with children, but the dog's natural inclination to "bump" and "herd," dating from its origins as a German herding dog, may cause injury if the dog is left unchecked with the infirm or small children.

The Rottweiler tends to bond to his owner and a small circle of family and friends. They are often suspicious of strangers, or may even be aggressive with them. But this depends on the breeding and training. There are many Rotties that are used in visiting animal programs at nursing homes. These dogs have learned to be at ease among strangers.

The Rottweiler descends from the drover dogs of ancient romes, often accompanying the Roman Legions across the Alps to herd cattle an guard the camps. The German town of Rottweil, named for its red-tiled roofs, is the former site of one of these roaming Roman camps. The cattle trade flourished in Rottweil during the 1800s, increasing the demand for and importance of the Rottweiler Metzgerhund ("butcher dog:). After the development of the railroad, these dogs were used less frequently. However, they gained popularity as police dogs in the 1900s. Although relatively unknown in the United States through the 1970s, the 1980s witnessed an explosion in the dog's popularity, making it the second most popular AKC (American Kennel Club) breed since 1992.
Fun things to do:
The Rottweiler is much less into "horseplay" and more in to disciplined walks and simple companionship. Although you should never let your Rottweiler run amok on its own as this may cause insubordination and aggressiveness, you should walk and play with your dog often. Temperament varies within the breed, but attentive training and early socialization will help nurture a fun-loving, often clownish pet.

Rotties are good walking dogs, since they like to walk or at most break into a slow, loping trot as their main gait. Most are not into running much, especially since running can be hard on the hips of such a robust, heavy-boned dog. But some more energetic ones can be good jogging companions.

Health Risks:
Some common health concerns for the Rottweiler include the following: Hip Dysplasia (developmental disease of the hip joints), elbow dysplasia (developmental disease of the elbow joints), Osteochondrosis Dessicans (disease of bone formation leading to lameness and arthritis), Panosteitis ("growing pains" or "pano"), entropion (inverted eyelids), hypothyroidism, Von Willebrand's Disease (hereditary bleeding disorder similar to hemophilia; diagnosed through blood screening). In addition, the Rottweiler may suffer from bloat, or stomach torsion, which is a twisting of the stomach that can be fatal if not treated immediately.
Things to watch out for with this breed:
The Rottweiler is a powerful dog, often stronger as an adult than its owners. The dog is not normally considered a family pet, but can be good with children if trained properly (although it is not recommended). They require plenty of training time, a firm leader who will provide positive reinforcement, and plenty of attention. DO NOT USE harsh training methods, this can make a Rottie aggressive.

The Rottweiler can be very aggressive and uncontrollable if trained or bred improperly. This breed is best for experienced owners and is not good with aggressive games or horseplay. In addition, your dog's docility will depend on continual socialization and companionship.
