A-Z Challenge - R For Rottweiler

From the Working Group, the Rottweiler is a calm, confident and courageous dog with a self-assured aloofness that does not lend itself to indiscriminate friendships. He has an inherent desire to protect his home and family. With a strong willingness to work, he is especially suited as a companion, guardian and general all-purpose dog.

Dogs are 24 to 27 inches; bitches 22 to 25 inches.


For the A-Z Challenge, I am blogging about dog breeds to celebrate the July 28 release of my novel, Chihuahua Momma.

I want to give a shout out to Alex J Cavanaugh and the A-Z Challenge group. Visit the A-Z Challenge web site: http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/

  1. I think Rottweilers are very intimidating dogs. Powerful and intimidating.

  2. I'm not a fan of Rottweilers, just bad experiences really. I'm sure they can be lovely dogs though.

  3. If I were to get a dog, it would be a Rottweiler. They are so pretty, and I heard they are very dedicated.

  4. Rottweiler puppies are adorable, and clearly intimidating as mature dogs. Love all dogs...

    1. Yes, they are cute puppies, and are used as guard dogs. I think Dobermans are the most intimidating.

  6. They can be intimidating when fully grown, but they are great dogs in many ways.

  7. Magnificent dogs. Intimidating, but magnificent all the same. I'm sure, however, their nature is down to how they are treated and trained. Much like kids!

  8. My fav breed. Rescued them for years. Always saddened that many only see them through the media, although they are fairly stubborn and independent at times. I just want to hold, hug and snuggle a Rottie...ah the stories I could tell about the ones I've met and have been owned by...*sigh*

  9. I've also heard that they are very protective and loyal, though I wouldn't want to run into an unleashed Rottweiler at anytime.

  10. What a great theme for the challenge! We have always had a lot of dogs, never a Rottweiler, but three Doberman Pinschers and one German Shepherd among the large and protective breeds. Many mutts and now a young Samoyed and a GSD mix. We rescue them as we find them. I have gone back and read several of your posts and I love the way you organized them. Needless to say, I am visiting from the A to Z.

  11. Those dogs are just cool-looking, aren't they. They look so tough. The one in the pic looks like a big softie, but still tough. :)
