The Rottweiler breed is a popular family guardian and friend. Pet parents with an active lifestyle will find a faithful, loving, and intelligent friend for life with a Rottweiler. Novice pet parents should beware, however, as these purebreds are strong and intense and require focused care and obedience training while young.
The Rottweiler is a German breed that was originally created to drive cattle. Due to their muscular stature, they were later used to help pull butcher carts around town. Modern-day Rottweilers are often just good family companions, though they're still used regularly on the police force and in the U.S. Military.
Most male Rottweilers stand between 24-27 inches at the shoulder, while the females are typically a little smaller. Their muscular frame can make them intimidating, but with proper socialization and obedience training, these dogs make fantastic family friends and great watchdogs. Providing your Rottweiler with leadership that he can respect without using physical force is important; otherwise, he may take the role as alpha, and your ability to control them will be diminished.
Rottweilers are fantastic pets and companions, but they aren't for everyone. This breed has gained an unnecessarily bad reputation, which means you will likely deal with people who don't understand how friendly and social Rottweilers can be. There are even cities that have banned the breed altogether. If you choose to raise a Rottweiler, do your best to redeem the reputation of the breed by training your dog to be obedient and respect people.
How dog-friendly is Mississippi?
Mississippi has a ton of pet owners and dog lovers in the state! But a few factors consistently put Mississippi in the bottom or middle of the pack compared to the most pet-friendly states. The main issue is Mississippi’s somewhat lax approach to animal welfare laws.
Animal advocacy and shelter group Pawsafe ranks Mississippi 48th overall for pet-friendliness. Definitely some room for improvement!
They arrived at their state ranking through a study evaluating each of the 50 states by important factors like animal cruelty restrictions, pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. As we mentioned, the main issue for Mississippi is its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
A separate study by review site Safewise ranks Mississippi as 32nd. A little bit better! However, if we combine the two studies, Mississippi still ranks towards the bottom of the pack.

Nineteen out of 64 of the animal shelters within Mississippi are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 80%.
