They have an overcoat in addition to an undercoat.
Their ears are trapezoidal and have a broad base.
German Rottweilers are adaptable to many different climates and environments but prefer cooler temperatures.
They need plenty of exercise and may do best in households with a large, enclosed backyard.
It's a breed of dog that originated in the ancient Roman city of Rottweil in the south of Germany.
Today, they are found worldwide and are popular in many countries as pets and working dogs.
These dogs are omnivores, and their food chain typically consists of small animals, plant matter, and occasional grains.
