This is too much.
Nobody understands or knows much about us Rotties.
We're misunderstood and misused.
From now on, I will give a little bit of history and temprement of Rotties with each post. If you disagree or have more to add, please feel free to comment and I'll correct or add it in my next post!
Bear Bear the Fearsome Rottie Fact #1
-Tracing the history of any breed of dog prior to the 1850’s is almost impossible. The origin of the Rottweiler is not a documented record, due to the Rottweiler being considered one of the oldest dog breeds.
-The Rottweilers origin goes back to Roman times, we accompanied Roman troops on their journey through the Alps. Some of our roles were herding and guarding the stock and protecting the camp. It is documented there was such regard for these dogs that Nero himself has several around his palace for guarding purposes.
-In the region of das Rote Wil, which later became Rotwil and later still Rottweil, we bred with the native dogs and became known as the “Butcher Dog”. Our role became driving, herding, and guarding cattle, sheep, pigs, and pulling carts. We also protected our masters and were known for wearing money belts around our necks, in order to keep our masters lively hood safe from thieves.
Actually that's 3 facts. I will educate the public more about our breed in future posts.
