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.
