The Rottweiler is an extremely powerful and intelligent breed. They are happiest when given a task to perform and their ability to work have made the Rottweiler the common choice for police dogs, herders, therapy dogs, and companions. The Rottweiler is generally black with mahogany or rust color markings.

The ancestors of Rottweilers were the drover's dogs, which kept the herds held by Romans company while they invaded Europe. As the need to breed a dog with herding and guardian instincts diminished, the Rottweiler almost fell to extinction. It wasn't until the early 1900s, that a new club developed a breed standard and the Rottweiler has not changed significantly since that time.
