This quite detailed and interesting figurine, signed '83 M Richardson, is 3 inches tall and about 2 and 3/4 inches long. This rottie has a textured finish giving it a realistic impression. It caught my fancy in an antique shop in the mid '80s and is still in Excellent Condition. The Rottweiler is a very old breed. It was around serving the Roman Legions. Rotties had many varied jobs through the past 4000 years; from guarding cattle to pulling carts. They are a strong and loyal dog, but generally need a strong handler. Many are trained and titled in Schutzhund, used in police work, or as patrol dogs. This was made by Marsha A. Richardson in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Boone, NC, USA. .
