Eat. Sleep. Fetch. Kill.
~ The film's tagline reffering to the titular Slayhound.

The Rottweiler is a cybernetic monstrous Slayhound who once was a normal Rottweiler owned by a rich man. This Slayhound is almost unstoppable when it locks on a target, it's also virtually undestructible as it's immune to bullets. It appeared in the 2004 film Rottweiler.


He was first an ordinary security pet owned by a rich man. The man owned a labour camp where he puts useless and poor men who cannot pay their debts in it. During a daring prison escape by a man named Dante and his girlfriend, the Rottweiler was beaten up by Dante while trying to protect his master.

Because of its injury the rich man payed scientists to turn it into a cybernetic Slayhound. But after the operation the dog transformed from a loving pet into a killing machine. Seeing the new attributes of the dog, the rich man put him as security dog in his prison to prevent more prison breaks. The rottweiler met a new caretaker whom it felt closed to.

While on the search for the escaped Dante, the rottweiler proved his monstrosity by killing and hunting those who escaped earlier. When they already captured Dante, Dante again tried to escape by reaching for the security's shotgun. He managed to reach it and shot the rottweiler and the guard. Sensing the danger is over Dante tries to find his girlfriend. The rottweiler suddenly wokes up and sees his caretaker brutally shot. It then swore revenge on Dante and tried to track him down.

The rottweiler hunts Dante down for his deceased friend, a thing still shown in modern dogs. Burned and bruised during his hunt for Dante, they finally faced each other in the burning prison camp after Dante discovers that the rottweiler killed his girlfriend earlier, both of them died for vengeance of their loved ones. The other morning a pair of firemen discovered the skeletons of Dante, his girlfriend's and the Slayhound's laying on the beach.

Appearance, traits and behavior

The rottweiler shows extreme levels of intelligince by throwing Dante's gun into the river and avoiding firepower from guns. His cyborg quantities gives him invulnerability to pistol shots and other arilleries. He also shows psychological problems to Dante, causing him to hallucinate and develop schizophrenia, which gets him and the people around him in trouble and death. It's also stronger than any other dog and even other animals, in the film it was seen to easily overpower and kill other guard dogs. Even as a cyborg the rottweiler shows cannibalistic attributes shown when he devoured both humans and his fellow guard dogs.

When not damaged the Slayhound looks like a deformed rottweiler lacking fur in the one side of his face and it also has glowing blue eyes, revealing that it's a cyborg. This Slayhound has an extremely agressive behavior, like most Slayhounds it's loyal to one person. It's also very sadistic, persistent and fearless, the only thing he cares is to avenge his friend's death and also fulfill his task by killing Dante.
