Rottweiler is one of the oldest of herding breeds. It is likely that the Rottweiler is a descendant of ancient Roman drover dogs, brought into modern day Germany by Roman legions. During the Middle Ages, the dogs were known as "Rottweil butchers' dogs" (German: Rottweiler Metzgerhund) because they were used to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat and other products to market.
