Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts. Carsten is doing somewhat better. He is more mobile now on his own without falling and smashing into things. He still whines a lot which I think is because he still feels funny. I hope it will continue to improve. He goes to the vet in another week or so to get his Phenobarb levels checked again and a CBC and CMP to make sure everything else is alright with the new meds on board. I am hopeful to never again see him seize like that, it was horrid and I wouldn't wish it on my worse enemy. If I had one.

Thank you so much. Besides the whining, he is a very easy to love dog.





Funny, intelligent and sweet what more could anyone ask for in a dog? Answer, Healthy

Ha Ha, I wouldn't dare. He was reading the "owner's guide to Rottweiler's" A friend of mine wanted a Rottie and I have had them forever but wanted her to read something about them before making a decision based on my dogs. Mine are so very socialized and they can be quite different if not properly socialized. Carsten was doing a pre-read of the book. ha ha

Here is another one of my favorites mostly due to the memory. This was Simon's (the baby" first time standing and letting go. He pulled up on Carsten, then tried to let go, it was a matter of a second and he lost his balance, he grabbed Carsten's collar but was already mid fall so he flipped around in front of Carsten and just hung there. Carsten being the gentle giant that he is very slowely laid down until Simon was laying flat on the floor in front of him and we (my sister and I ) could help him. This boy is worth his weight in Gold and then some.





The second picture is too close because I was already trying to prevent the fall that was coming. h a ha

wow what a special dog.
my sister has a rescued one,was as skinny as a ferret when she got him,but he's doing well.
only problem is the rescue think he was trained to attack with a german command,
but they never found out what it was
but he's a friendly young man,and apparently cries when we leave after a visit,he
sits by the front door.

He must like you a lot. The wonderful thing about training is that you can always train something new. Training a dog to attack is just foolish and is often what gets people in trouble. I have been asked thousands of times if I trained my dogs to attack so they can guard my house properly. I wouldn't bother. My dogs are friendly, social and gentle but if they needed to do something, I have no doubt in my mind they would do so. Trying to train any dog to be vicious is just stupid. IMO

The German word for attack is "Angriff"

Scary to think this kind docile creature could explode into something terrible with one word..... and not knowing the word. Why do people do that?

Hier! Which is used for "come"

Nein! Which is used for "No!" Some people will use the word Pfui!/Bad dog

Fuß! (foos) which is for "heel"

Platz! Which means "place" used for down on command

Aus! Which means "let loose" You should know that one just in case. ha ha

The only reason I know these is I had several dogs trained in German over the years. Chances are this dog was trained by an idiot since a smart dog person wouldn't do that. It is very doubtful that the dog will just go nuts for no reason. If they have questions about this dogs temperament it shouldn't be around children anyway. Retraining is a good thing anyway.
