Overview
The Rottweiler has origins that are unknown, however it probably descended from the Italian Mastiff. During the Middle Ages, the Rottweiller was commonly used as a herd dog. The Rottweiler became nearly extinct in the 1800's, but made a wonderful comeback in the early twentieth century by breeders in Stuttgart. The Rottweiler today is used for a variety of things such as tracking, herding, watch dogging, police work, obedience trails, as well as guarding which he does exceptionally well in.
Character
The Rottweiler can be a very fun loving dog, however he is very powerful and can be serious at times. Early obedience training and socialization is a must. This breed can be very territorial and protective of their family and their environment. Rottweilers can be very intimidating, still retaining an undeserving reputation as a vicious and/or mean dog, however they do extremely well in a family environment.

Does your Rottweiler bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The temperament of the Rottweiler can vary. Some can be very affectionate and somewhat of a clown, while others can be bullies. It is critical that this breed is socialized at an early age. Rottweilers can do well with children if raised around them, but should be supervised around small children due to their sheer size and power. The Rottweiler can do well around other dogs, however can be somewhat combative and can show aggression if not socialized properly as this is a very protective breed of both their family and their territory.
Care
The Rottweiler has a short and glossy coat that is relatively easy to groom. An average shedding breed, brushing with a firm bristle brush regularly should remove any excess hair or dead hairs. Bathing too often will remove the natural oils from the coat and/or skin. Dry shampooing is used by many Rottweiler owners as well as breeders so they are not to remove the essential oils in this breeds coat.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Rottweiler has an outer coat that is short, straight, dense and of medium length. The coat should always be coarse to the touch. The undercoat should be present around the neck and thighs. Coat should never be wavy or curly. The Rottweiler has one of the most noticeable coats with the distinct black and bright rust coloring along their legs, underbelly and muzzle.
Training
Rottweilers are very eager to earn and will excel if given the opportunity. Obedience training is a must as this breed can become destructive without enough stimulation. A firm and dominant hand must be used when training this powerful breed. The Rottweiler is extremely intelligent and does well in many different sports and trials, but can also be stubborn. Obedience classes are recommended, but not always required. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Rottweiler puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Rottweiler should have at least a large sized yard. They aren't really active indoors, so they need plenty of exercise outdoors, off lead preferably. This breed loves long walks and should have at least two long walks per day totaling at least two hours of exercise per day. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

My Rottweiler, my best friend and love of my life had to be put down at 6 due to severe complications with diabetes. The vet said that his pancreas failed. Is this common in a Rotty or not? I miss him severely.

Are there any breeders that still produce the old school, circa 1972-1990 type Rottweiler? I'm looking for large body extremely large head and for god sakes no tail. What is up with the tail? That is not a Rottweiler with a tail. Can someone please help and advice, this will be a protection dog.

You will have to contact breeders in your area, or breeders you find online that are producing that type of dog. Most likely a breeder who specializes in protection work will have what you are looking for. Or a breeder whom shows and does tails or something like that. The non-docking of tails that is going around right now is basically people's idea of "if the dog is not being shown, then leave the tail". But everyone has their own opinion on that. Though please remember that the large headed Rotties pose a greater increase in death in the dam and must be C-sectioned to be born, so they normally cost more because of that.

I don't see why it can't be a Rottweiler just because it has a tail. I know it sounds crazy, but not everyone has the tail docked.

How do I find a healthy Rottweiler puppy, but more importantly what do I need to do to keep him healthy as he grows older? I know Rottweilers are prone to long-term health problems. Many Rottweilers can live up to the ages of 12 or 13, but so sadly many are lost at the age of 6 or 7 due to a variety of ailments such as epilepsy, crippling joint diseases, heart disease, bone cancer, or bloat. I absolutely love this breed and want my Rottweiler puppy to live a long healthy life. Obviously the first step is finding a reputable breeder who breeds for the health of the breed. Outside of that, please post any advice to help me increase my new babies life.

Make sure that the dam and sire of your Rottweiler have had their health checks done and cleared them. You should also look at the pedigree of the dam and sire. Look for longevity and health of the dogs further down the pedigree. This will give you an indication of potential lifespan. Feeding your pup a high-quality grain-free puppy and then dog food and keeping him/her at a good weight is also key. Over-weight puppies/dogs will develop issues earlier. Keeping your pup well exercised, but not over-worked as a pup so that he/she is healthy but no joint damage is done.

How aggressive are Rottweilers towards other dogs?

Every breed of dog has the ability to become aggressive to another dog. Please note that there are several breeds that were bred to be protection dogs, including the Rottweiler. These breeds were bred to be loyal, protective and loving to their owners but aloof/stranger-wary when it came to other dogs and people. It is bad breeding, bad training and bad socialization that makes people think twice when they think about the Rottie. But, with good breeding, good training, and good socialization, the breed can be perfectly fine with other dogs. The Rottie is known to have a semi-high prey drive, so supervision with animals and dogs smaller should always be done. But in reality, if you get your pup from a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder, go through at least basic obedience with a trainer and socialize your puppy a ton; then your dog should grow up to be a friendly, easy-going dog when it comes to other dogs.

At what age should I put my Rottweiler in training? Also, we have a small Boston Terrier, is that enough socialization for this type of dog?

The moment you get your puppy at 8 weeks old, you can start training him/her. But at 5 - 6 months old when he/she has had his/her full set of shots is the best time to go into an obedience class. Your dog needs a TON more socialization than just your Boston Terrier. You need to take your pup to pet stores, down main street, to dog parks, on doggy home visits with as many different sizes of dogs as possible. You want to aim for 100 new dogs to be met by your pup by the time he/she is 6 months old. As well as people, the Rottie has a bad rap and you need to be a responsible owner and an advocate for the breed and make sure your dog is very well socialized and understands his/her commands when given to him/her.
