| Rottweilers were used to herd cattle for the Roman Legion so the soldiers would have meat. The Rottweiler is named after the German town of Rottweil. Rottweilers are often used as police dogs. Rottweilers nearly became extinct in the nineteenth century. Rottweilers are descendents of ancient Italian Mastiffs.
