Rottweiler

The Rottweiler dog breed is traditionally considered German, and it is, however, it appeared on the territory of Germany centuries earlier, when on the site of modern German cities there were only settlements of semi-wild Germanic tribes. The Roman Empire, expanding its borders, conquered new territories, and the lands beyond the Rhine were of great value, like the people who inhabited them.

The Romans had fighting dogs, and they, of course, in the process of moving troops mated with local dogs. The same happened in Germany, moreover, the Romans not only passed in this region, but also left behind deep traces in the form of culture, settlements, cities, roads. When in the Middle Ages, during the time of the new Holy Roman Empire, the inhabitants of one of the German settlements decided to build a church and began to build a foundation, they discovered the remains of an ancient Roman villa with a red tiled roof.

Bearded Collie (Birdie, Bearded Man)

A bearded collie is one of the oldest breeds in the UK. These dogs have been known to people since very ancient times, which is confirmed by many documentary evidence. One of the first images of dogs such as bearded collies is presented in a portrait painted by Gainsborough in 1771, and in a portrait of Reynolds in 1772. Also, a description of the breed was published in 1818 in the issue of the Live Stock Journal. But, in fact, the breed has more ancient roots, although there are no earlier images of these dogs.

They were also called Highland Collie, Mountain Collie or Hairy Collie. Such shaggy, long-haired dogs for centuries helped in farms, being universal and very useful animals. The lack of earlier evidence is explained very simply – farmers in the Middle Ages did not know how to read and write, respectively, they could not keep any records. But dogs were bred solely on the basis of their useful qualities. Continue reading

Bullmastiff

The bullmastiff dog breed appeared as a result of experiments by breeders with mastiff and bulldog breeds. This happened because for the functions of tracking and hunting people (yes, you heard right) the mastiff, by itself, was good, but it lacked aggression and a dead grip. And the bulldog, despite the fact that he could very well grasp his victim, is not large enough and powerful, and therefore it is problematic for him to stop a person on the run.

Gamekeepers in England acted as breeders, who needed a dog that could catch and stop poachers in the forest. At the same time, the dog had to combine strength, speed, courage, large size and at the same time be silent enough not to scare the victim from afar with his bark, but, on the contrary, sneak up to it as close as possible, and then catch and tumble down with a quick jerk to the ground. Further work was already done by the rangers themselves, who usually followed the dog. Continue reading
