I'm Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter, and I am the "Living with Dogs" columnist for I've actually written 6 books and I'm hard at work on my next one. It will be about about dogs -- that's as much as I can say right now. I love dogs and I think nobody's life is complete without one. So I'm here to tell you about a variety of different dogs breeds that might suit your lifestyle. I hope you'll adopt one soon. The Rottweiler is an amazing dog. And actually, if you want to be really technical, because it is a German breed, the W is pronounced as a V, like victory. So it's Rott-Veiler. There is actually a statue in Rotweill, Germany of a Rottweiler, a beautiful dog. These dogs were originally used as working dogs, and they still are used as working dogs. But this is a great example of a dog whose job has evolved to meet, you know, and match what humans need. In the old days, the Rottweiler was actually used as a drover. They actually drove cattle and other livestocks for the people who were butchering them. They also accompanied butchers to market. And the money was often tied around their neck, because, who's gonna mess with a Rottweiler? But, in reality, they're actually very cuddly, wonderful dogs. The Rottweiler now works in search and rescue...they do therapy work. They are service dogs also, because they're very strong. They pull things. You know, they're just amazing all around, strong working dogs, and they like to have a job. Similar to a pitbull, a Rottweiler really does need a strong hand, a strong but gentle hand in training. That's very important for a dog like a Rottweiler, so that he or she doesn't become aggressive. So I've gotten to know many of them, I love this breed. They make wonderful dogs, and I think they're beautiful. Just the black glossy coat with the brown marking. They often have little eyebrows. And sometimes when you see mutts with eyebrows, it's pretty easy to figure out that there's some Rottweiler in the lineage.
