The German shepherd and the Rottweiler are two of the most popular dog breeds in the world and both breeds have a great reputation in the dog world.
The German shepherd is a large sized working dog that was bred primarily for herding and guarding the flocks.
The Rottweiler also referred to as Rottie is a medium to large sized dog breed. Like the German shepherd, the Rottweiler has its origin in Germany
They all showed up at the dog park today! German Shepherds, Dobermans, a Rottweiler, Great Dane, and a Pit Bull mix…WOW!!! They all got along great and played…Sorry media, no blood shed for your lame news reports about these dogs being viscous and un predictable breeds…
Also, my Rottie is dead beat tired as this is after our 3 mile walk around Greenlake.
The German Shepherd is a breed of medium to large-sized working dog that originated in Germany. The breed's officially recognized name is German Shepherd Dog in the English language, sometimes abbreviated as GSD and was also formerly known as the Alsatian in Britain.
The Rottweiler is a breed of domestic dog, regarded as medium-to-large or large.The dogs were known in German as Rottweiler Metzgerhund, meaning Rottweil butchers' dogs, because one of their uses was to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat to market. This continued until the mid-19th century when railways caused droving to be replaced with herding. Rottweilers are now used as search and rescue dogs, as guide dogs for the blind, as guard dogs and police dogs.
People on here are debating as to whether a GS or an American Pit Bull Terrier is more dangerous. The answer is a PB. The reason is PB were bed to fight. They were bred to 'bite, hold & shake' & have a much higher pain thresh hold. You can kick an attacking PB thats latched onto someone all you want & it's most unlikely it will let go. It's not about the bite force (both nearly identical anyway), it's about the way these dogs instinctively attack. So GS lovers, YES your dogs are still tough, but the difference in what they were bred to do makes the Pit Bull much more dangerous. Here are the top 10 dogs for most powerful bite Psi:
1. Kangal (743)
2. Mastiff (556)
3. Wolfdog (406)
4. Rottweiler (328)
5. African Wild Dog (317)
6. American Bull Dog (305)
7. German Shepherd (238)
8. Pit Bull (235)
9. Dutch Shepherd (224)
