Rottweilers are steady, good-natured, and fearless. They are devoted and great protectors of their families. They were one of the first police dogs, because of both their size and intensity, but also their trainability. But don't let their size fool you, they are also amazing family guardians and companions as they are loving, faithful, and intelligent. Everyone who has a rottweiler knows how truly goofy they can be.
