The Rottweiler shares several characteristics with the Doberman. Both breeds are known to be strong, fierce, and intimidating, and both were bred in Germany. Rottweilers were initially bred to be working dogs, with their early responsibilities including pulling carts and herding cattle. While these roles slowly dissolved, the Rottweiler has consistently kept one occupation; guard dog. These dogs are the perfect addition to a film or television production requiring a frightening pooch. However, they’re surprisingly versatile and have also been known to show their cuter side during stylish pet photography shoots.
