Nicknames:
The Rottweiler Nanny (She never took her eyes of my Son)

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

Likes:
Hard to imagine she was supposed to be an attack dog - She was none-aggressive, but STILL safed us three different times from sure harm..

Pet-Peeves:
Fireworks, oh she loved Fireworks or everything loud. She'd try to find it and then 'catch it'. She would have made a great Law Inforcement Dog, as she would remove Toy Guns out of my son's hands and get rid of it (no idea what she did with it)

Favorite Toy:
FRISBEE! Yupp, this big old Dog would fly thrue the air like a Border Collie. AND the Garden Hose. Water, water, water... for hours none-stop..

Favorite Food:
She was, like all our animals, a Nutro Dog. We are certain that she lived that long and without being EVER ill because of this great diet.

Favorite Walk:
Around the block and to PetsMart

Best Tricks:
"Play Dead" and "Smile". She would show them pearly white's upon command, which some mistook easily for an impression of an Attack Dog, .. came in handy sometimes at Night Walks!

Arrival Story:
We wanted a Rottweiler because I was new to the USA and did not want to be without a dog (I had a Bernese Mountain Dog before). I worked many Rottweilers, Doberman and Shepherds before I came to AZ (I am a Dog Trainer in AZ), and so I went to look at ads in the Newspaper, because I was looking for a dog which needed a home, not a puppy. Of ALL the Rottweiler ads (dogs between 8 month and 2 years old, typical age when lazy dog owners can't handle this breed anymore), she was the only one left. Nobody wanted this emaciated looking dog. Living in a tiny one bedroom apartment, the owners had her tied to a door knob for month, their so called trainer said, to not feed/water her so she won't mess in the house. Nobody ever thought of kennel training. When she did make a mess, after 10 hours tied up, she was beaten. We did not receive food (just out) nor dishes (melted in dishwasher), she had no clue how to behave on a leash and was 'out of it'. My husband thought I was insaine wanting this dog, specially having our baby boy at the time. I saw beyond all the bad stuff, and realized her inner potencial quickly. SHE was the best Dog I ever had, and when she past on, Summer of 2003, she fell asleep and never woke up. My son, now 11 years old, has not recovered from this loss since she went over the Rainbow bridge. I still look at her pictures, which we have on the walls, on a daily basis, thinking she was one of a kind and I will never own another Rottweiler, because I'd be afraid to compare and not to find..... We miss her terrible.

Bio:
