Rottweilers have a rich history in security roles, spanning generations, owing largely to their inherent qualities. Dating back to the era of Roman emperors, these dogs were tasked with safeguarding wealth and herds of cattle. With proper training and socialization, Rottweilers prove to be adaptable and highly capable in diverse tasks.
In the contemporary world, there are various options for guard dogs to protect households. Brenna Kramer, an avid animal lover from Zephyrhills, Florida, shares her residence with two Rottweilers and a barn.
She didn’t just get these dogs for her own security; she also wanted to safeguard the well-being of her beloved horses. Little did she realize that these same dogs would one day step in to save the lives of her equine companions.
One evening, an unforeseen event unfolded. Brenna, sound asleep, was abruptly awoken by the insistent barking of her watchful dogs within the house. Sensing trouble outside, she promptly ventured out to ascertain the source of the disturbance. Her foremost concern was the well-being of her horses.
To her surprise, she found evidence of tampering with the stable’s power supply, signaling an attempted horse theft. A horse sported a rope around its neck, suggesting playful antics, while it was clear others were also targeted.
Yet, the two courageous dogs might have fled if not for their fearlessness. In their bid to safeguard the horses, one brave rottweiler sustained two head injuries. Such occurrences aren’t uncommon in California, where horses fetch high prices. Fortunately, the bravery of these loyal canines led to the rescue of her horses.
