  • "The rottweiler is probably descended from the Italian mastiff.... It was bred in the German town of Rottweil in Wurttemberg. Practically extinct in 1800, the breed became popular in the early twentieth century due to enthusiastic breeders centered in Stuttgart." (Simon & Schuster's Guide to Dogs, 1980)

    Uhh... did anyone else catch the weird connotations of 'enthusiastic breeders'?
