A mutie Rotterman, or mutant Doberman Rottweiler mix, was just one example of dogs bred for hunting and war, a tradition leading back to the dawn of time.
The ville of Front Royal was well known for its rottermen, which was home to the Canine Enforcement Training Center (CETC), prior to skydark. It trained dogs in various detection abilities for numerous Federal Agencies.
The Cawdor’s have been breeding mutie Doberman Rottweiler dogs for generations. Harvey sent them after Ryan and the others. The dogs are huge, coming up to a mans waist, and weighing in at over one hundred twenty pounds. Its muzzle is long and the jaws wide. They were trained to go for the genitals, or for the throat.
