The Rottweiler


Yesterday, when leaving Columbine Library, there was a Gent walking two dogs. It was a very lucky day!! Seeing one large male Rottweiler, immediately I pulled into some parking space, lunged out of the car, “”May I come over to your Rottweiler?””

The Gent was all grins, a Rottweiler lover!

Immediately the 100 pound male Rottie came over to me, and I began to scratch his back and then to the lower tail area. Rotties do the Rottie dance. Heaven for 15 minutes both Rottie and Redhead human! I got my Rottie fix!

There are plenty of Rotties in Rescue 14K across the continent

Searching all over the US continent for a Rescue Rottie might seem plausible, if not EASY.       NOPE!!

The demands are: A person must have Rottweiler experience. Hey no problem – 24 plus years worth.

Major BLOCK!!! Out of State: few are willing, if ever, allow an adoption over state lines, even with my glowing recommendations. (They must have a doctor’s completed health certificate, same as horses when crossing state lines, or other factors, the What IF’s!)

My vet, Dr. LaBonde since 1988 – through all my Rotties and other adopted or found dogs, all my recommendations, TJoes, Restaurants, individuals who commend my incredible  abilities training dogs and horses. Many out of State recuses will not budge allowing their rescue Rottweilers to be adopted to Colorado! And Colorado does NOT have fleas, heartworms are brought from out of state and curable.





My first Rottweiler naturally gravitated to children in the parks. They would chase her all over Washington park in Denver. Seybrook became a Children’s Hospital therapy dog, Adored by everyone! 

One would think this would be impressive. Nope! Not allowed to adopt a rescue Rottweiler out of state.

All four Rottweilers were known and loved in the Rocky mountains when people walked my my SUV and saw three Rottie heads poking out the windows, staying passively Quiet!

Never got a speeding ticket (known Rottweiler armor), as the Rotties would bark in the backseat, the police would say, “you have 3 of them, just drive a little slower, see you later” Or I would give a German command and the one office ask, “What kind of dog?” “Rottweiler,” I would say proudly. The officer’s heart melted, and….”I’m giving you a warning, please slow down, you were doing 25 miles per hour over the speed limit!” 

OOOOPPPS really? Dang that SUV drove smoothly. And I have slowed way down!

Its’ true Rottie people seldom get tickets

Funny True Story. Never have fear when driving up to an ATM at night with a Rottweiler! My Sebastian was in the back seat enjoying the cool fresh air through the open window. As I was taking my cash at an open ATM, a young man walked up, not seeing the Huge Block Head staring at him through the open window who let out a single BARK!

The young man jumped so far back, I laughed so hard, almost peed, it was so funny. The young man said, “I didn’t mean to scar him!” LOLOL my words!! “We are not scared, but you better never walk up to another car at an ATM at anytime; you never know who is in the backseat.””

The Grin on my Sebastian’s face was hilarious, and I still giggle while missing him deep in my heart.

Life use to be simpler. Taking my Seybrook with me while closing on my Victorian, everyone wore huge smiles, feeling delighted. Insurance company ladies would come to my home, “Oh you have 3 Rottweilers, they are so friendly and well behaved, sign here please.” Now……….I have to ask who will insure my home, and my Rottweiler, all dogs are service or therapeutic working dogs. So is my Arabian horse!!

Rottweilers are Huge Lap dogs.

They are loyal and highly intelligent. 

Could we please have more humans measure up to the latter two attributes mentioned?

Please come find me I miss you so much-my male Rottweiler!

      Wonderful story Bill. Rottweilers have a elaborate history and their DNA is one of intelligence, water dog, Driving and Herding, Loyalty and Love. They protect only out of love, they are not biting dogs, rather when the chest drops, being Driving & Herding hey use their chest and body with other animals and people. Great Nanny dogs.
      I am sure you have read Good Dog Carl.

      I still appreciate Cesar Millan for training, he started with Rottweilers and loves the breed, giving one rescue male to his son. Thank you for commenting.

          Harken I have had Rottweilers for over 24Years, I love them and can’t wait for my next two to join my cat and Arabian horse. They work with me as well, in service speaking about the instinctiveness of service, helping trauma and medical problems more effectively than doctors. And why Black dogs are the most often euthanized. ON a remaining life mission, thank you for your comments.
