Oh my goodness, I should say so. ha ha I am certain my boy Carsten would love to visit friends in the neighborhood and make new ones as well. (he isn't fixed) I won't let him do that because of the risk of injury. Way too many cars and people who are afraid of Rottweilers and would do them harm.

i had a rottie once she was thrown or fell into a monsoon drain.Dont know how she got there but a friend took her out.she was an old dog.very much older then my spitz at that time and had a limp probably from the fall.there was no hasitation on my side on taking her home, giving her a bath and feeding her.i never found her owner so she stayed with me and produced 3 pups fathered by my spitz.rottie have a bad rap coz some owners don't know how to handle them or they were wrongfully bred with bad temperament dogs ths making them aggressive.

This is Peach, we just rescued her last year from a pound. She is probably the sweetest dog I've ever known- never barks, bites, or drools. But she does love Cheeze Its!


I'm gonna get it!!!!!!!

Here's the look she always gives me when I try to take a picture of her... lol

I love pet threads!

This is my boy, Clyde. He's 6 years old. We adopted him from the SPCA when he was 3 months old. This is the only pic of him I have on my computer right now as I lost all my stuff when my old computer crashed.

Carsten would cost a lot of sold or bred but I have no plans to do either. I have had this same breed for the past 30+ years and I have yet to have any problems with them. For me, I think they are the best family dogs ever. I have had so many people tell me they wouldn't get a Rottweiler because of possible aggression and then they go on to tell me how their dog has bit someone. Like I said, 33 years of Rottie ownership and I have never had a dog bite someone. I work hard to make sure that doesn't happen. Starting with training them and having them registered as Therapy dogs.

Here is a picture of Carsten doing active therapy with a rehab patient.



thatg33kgir Peach catching the cheese Nip is priceless. She has such a sweet face. You can tell she is a gentle spirit.

jeaninel Clyde is a very handsome cat. I got my cat fro a shelter as well. She has since passed but I had her for many many years and she was PURRRRFECT! I miss her and so does my boy, Oliver.

dogs behave bad cause their owners din't teach them right. just like kids there must be ground rules, love and encouragement to make them grow up right =)

sorry to hear bout your cat..
rotties have a bad reputation but they aren't bad.the owners are partly to blame if they bite people. people won't accept they are wrong it's easier to blame it on the dog.(bad habit)

Yes, I agree. I must be a good Rottweiler teacher. I used to train service dogs and I give my dogs a very good start. Most people seem to think with Rottweiler's you need to use harsh training tactics but nothing could be further from the truth. I use positive training methods and the dogs respect me and others because of it.

I have also spoke to other long time Rottweiler owners that have said "you shouldn't expect your dogs to be so soft" but in todays law suit happy world, that is exactly what I expect from my dogs. My 7 year old nephew was able to take a hot dog out of my dogs mouth when it dropped on the floor and the dog got it. Soft? Yup, but also safe.

Thanks for the condolences for my cat. She is missed in this house. Maybe someday, I will have another cat but the time is not right just yet.
