Rottweiler
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is a
puppet of a Rottweiler.
Appearance

The breed is black with clearly defined tan or mahogany markings on the cheeks,
muzzle, chest, legs, and eyebrows. The cheeks should have clearly defined spots that
should be separate from the muzzle tan. The muzzle tan should continue over the
throat. Each eyebrow should have a spot.

Temperament

In the hands of a responsible owner, a well-trained and socialized Rottweiler can be a
reliable, alert dog and a loving companion. However, any poorly trained dog can
become a danger in the wrong circumstances. In general Rottweilers are fond of
children, very devoted, quick to learn, and eager to please. They are typically very bright
dogs. Rottweilers are playful animals who may frequently demand attention from their
owners.

History

The breed is an ancient one, and its history stretches back to the Roman Empire. In
those times, the legions traveled with their meat on the hoof and required the
assistance of working dogs to herd the cattle. One route the army traveled was through
Württemberg and on to the small market town of Rottweil.The principal ancestors of the
first Rottweilers during this time was supposed to be the Roman war dog, local
sheepdogs the army met on its travels, and dogs with molosser appearance coming
from England and The Netherlands.
