The American Bullweiler is a mixed breed, so they don’t have history as their own breed. Both parent breeds, however, are well known and loved. The Rottweiler originated in Germany, first used for pulling carts. Their incredible strength and trainability continued to be valued, and today they are often used as guard dogs. This has led to an unfair reputation of « meanness. » Often, aggressive Rottweilers act this way due to their training. The American Bulldog was once used as a bull-baiting dog, but progressed to primarily being used for farm work. Their drive and loyalty remains today, and they are happy performing a « job » or task for their dog parents. Both of these breeds are respected for their loyalty, independent natures, and willingness to follow commands — with proper training.
