The modern German Shepherd Dog breed is descended from the working dogs bred in the late 1800s by Herr Max von Stephanitz and his colleagues. These dogs were bred for their intelligence, strength, and agility, as well as their ability to work with humans. The German Shepherds of that era were used primarily as herding dogs, but they also proved to be excellent police and military dogs.

The Rottweiler is a large, muscular dog originally bred in Germany to be a working dog. Today, they are still used as working dogs in many professions, but they are also popular pets. Rottweilers are loyal and protective of their families, and they can be aggressive if not properly trained and socialized. If you are thinking of adding a Rottweiler to your family, do your research and find a reputable breeder.
