Welcome to East Tn Pets....A place to learn about pets & find your new family member!!!

From the Site Owner

I want to welcome each of you to a place where you can come and learn about most all types of animals. I started this site 3 years ago because I felt so bad for all of the animals that are being euthanized every single day. I started this site free to the public so that you could join and list animals that are needing homes, ask questions about the ones you have, and to try and educate on how important it is to Spay/Neuter your pets. We have a great classifieds section as well as a section to talk and discuss anything and everything about your animals. We have Veternarians, Rescue Groups, along with other great members.

Although we are trying to keep this board clean, we are not active in the every day care and maintenance of any of these animals or products. All postings are from private individuals that are not associated with East Tn Pets in any way. Therefore, it is advised that you are very careful in the buying and selling of anything as always.

The Rottweiler is considered to be one of the oldest dog breeds. Its origin goes back to Roman times. These dogs were kept as herder or driving dogs. They marched over the Alps with the Roman legions, protecting the humans and driving their cattle. In the region of Rottweil, these dogs met and mixed with the native dogs in a natural crossing. The main task of the Rottweiler now became the driving and guarding of the herds of cattle and the defence of their masters and their property. This breed acquired its name from the old free city of Rottweil and was known as the "Rottweil butcher`s dog".

The butchers bred this type of dog purely for performance and usefulness. In due course, a first rate watch and driving dog evolved which could also be used as a draught dog. When, at the beginning of the twentieth century, various breeds were needed for police service, the Rottweiler was amongst those tested. It soon became evident that the breed was highly suitable for the tasks set by police service and therefore they were officially recognized as police dogs in 1910.

Rottweiler breeders aim at a dog of abundant strength, black coated with clearly defined rich tan markings, whose powerful appearance does not lack nobility and which is exceptionally well suited to being a companion, service and working dog.
