The Rottweiler is one tough dog!

As far as we know, historians think the Rottweiler dates back to Roman times. This dog breed was used to herd animals such as sheep and cattle. The Rottweiler was also used as a guard dog. This dog is legendary for its ability to protect his "pack". The Rottweiler considers his family to be his "pack" and will be very protective of you. Knowing this, it is important to socialize this breed as young as possible with kids, adults, other animals.

The Rottweiler has developed a reputation as being a difficult dog to own due to its very protective nature. You may want to check with the home owners or rental insurance provider to make sure you will still have coverage if you choose to adopt a Rottweiler. Some companies may exclude coverages. Your insurance agent should be able to provide you something is writing.
