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.
