The German Rottweiler, though very similar to the American Rottweiler, gets its name by being from Germany. One of the most notable differences between the two is German Rottweilers do not have docked tails (meaning their tale remains long). Other than that, the German Rottweiler and American Rottweiler are quite similar. Rottweilers were originally bred to drive cattle to the market and were among the first police dogs. With an intelligent, calm, and confident demeanor, the Rottweiler makes a loyal and protective family member. Their guardian tendencies make them a bit aloof with strangers and early socialization and training will keep them more protective rather than aggressive. A well-trained and well-socialized Rottweiler makes a loving, playful, and gentle family companion.
