Ah, the Rottie. Almost no other breed has gotten as bad a rep as the Rottweiler, who hails, as you might imagine, from Rotweil, Germany. Lots of people accuse the Rottie of being a violent, vicious and sadistic brute. Given the Rottweiler’s powerful build and the strength of its bite, when angry, he can do a great deal of damage and cause great harm. However, such behavior is usually the result of poor treatment or training by their owners. By nature, Rottweilers are actually calm, self-assured and somewhat aloof. Once they form a bond with you though, and you treat them right, they’re pretty much loyal for life.
Ethan here is a prime example of the Rottie charm, enhanced by the sculptor Lou Rankin, whose trademark is all in the eyes. Just look at Ethan, he’s got that soft, adorable face that makes you want to snuggle up with him. But don’t let that fuzzy, squishy exterior fool you. It hides the brave and powerful heart of a hero and a leader. You see, Rotties make excellent guard and police dogs, but they make good guide dogs as well. Contrary to other breeds used for guide dog training, a Rottie probably wouldn’t be a good therapy dog. They don’t form bonds with others outside of their chosen human(s) easily, but as a service animal, they’re loyal to a fault.
Ethan epitomizes everything that is great about a Rottie. What, you can’t see the strength, loyalty and power inherent in a severely ‘aww’-inducing plush? Look harder. It’s all there, just below the soft velvety surface. We promise.
