Despite the negative attention received due to its portrayal as a mean dog in television and film, the Rottweiler remains a highly popular large breed dog. And for very good reason: extremely intelligent and good-natured, the Rottweiler is loyal and attentive to its family. Historically a herding dog, the Rottweiler’s natural obedience makes it adaptable to several roles; just as capable of being a guard dog than assisting as a service dog. One thing remains: the Rottweiler would make a loving addition to any family, guaranteed.
