high 5 , play pirate
we were looking for a rotty, and heard of a family who had a litter, went over they were 3 weeks old. I picked each one up, one at a time adn rolled them on their back. ( checking personality ) Dakota turned his head and started to suckly on my finger laying in the palm of my hand. I knew I found my gentle giant ...we didnt know how big of a giant he would become...topping out at 165...but is down to 147 nowl.
Dakota is much larger then the standard rott. even at 8 weeks old he was 1/3 larger then his own litter mates. at 30 inchs at the shoulder and 147 lbs its good that he is such a softy.
He has a stong sense of pack or family, he will tease the cats in the house and gets great joy out of punking them ( making them believe he is going to attack ) however he will defend them no matter what the threat.
On 2 occassions he has stepped in and seperated a possible threat from my wife. A saleman came to the door and he just laid there not making a sound, on the 3rd no my wife went to shut the door and the guy stuck his arm in the door so sheh couldnt. Dakota almost went through a double pane slider door to get to the guy. as soon as my wife backed up and Dakota was between them, he stopped moving forward and went into a protection stance.
those pearly whites shur leave an impression when he shows them.
He's actually been taught to smile ( snarl ) on command, the fun part of the trick is when you tell him to pirate. he then adds the arrrr arrrr arrr sound with this throaty voice.
Even out good friends step back when they know he is only playing.
the gentle giant.
