The Rottweiler – a tremendously powerful animal probably best known among its owners as a placid, good-natured and loyal dog. In some unfortunate cases though, they can be portrayed as aggressive and the study into fatal dog attacks spanning over two decades has them and the pit-bull breed as the two responsible for the nighest number of human fatalities.
That aggression though is mostly towards strangers, perhaps a sign of their watchdog and territorial instincts.
However, as these pictures will show. The Rottweiler does have a wonderful side and sometimes the media portrayal of these dogs could be somewhat unfair.
This is not an article to build a case for either argument. We are here to give you 14 great pictures of these devoted dogs.
The American Kennel Club describes the Rottweiler as:
a calm, confident and courageous dog with a self-assured aloofness that does not lend itself to immediate and indiscriminate friendships. A Rottweiler is self-confident and responds quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to influences in its environment. It has an inherent desire to protect home and family, and is an intelligent dog of extreme hardness and adaptability with a strong willingness to work, making them especially suited as a companion, guardian and general all-purpose dog.
