The Rottweiler is a medium/large size type of domestic dog. The dogs were known as "Rottweil butchers' dogs". In German it is called Rottweiler Metzgerhund because they were used to herd livestock and draw trucks weighed down with butchered meat and different items to market. Like the mythical Greek hero Hercules, the Rottweiler is strong and true with a loving heart. Warmly called Rotties or Rotts, the type began in Germany, where it was utilized to drive steers and draw trucks for agriculturists and butchers. Powerful and compelling, the Rottweiler is happiest when given a job to perform. Legacy is reflected in the Rottie's expansive midsection and vigorously ripped body. When he moves, he shows quality and stamina, however when you investigate his eyes you see warm, dull tan pools reflecting a smooth, canny, caution, and daring outflow.
