Just foolin around

Just foolin around

My Rottie's name was Brutus. He came into my life when he was 8weeks old.

I wanted to share a particularly memorable moment. One day I was playing with him in my backyard on a nice summer evening. As I just ran around playing with him it got darker and darker.

As I turned to go inside for a second I could hear him barking. He seemed very distressed and wanted my attention. I started to walk towards him and he kept on inching away leading me deeper into the back yard to a portion behind the garage. It was almost dark outside so visibility was not that great.

He stopped about 3 feet away from the stockade fence and just moved back and forth looking at me and then at the fence and barking loudly. As I tried to calm him down he did whatever he could to get my attention towards the fence.

As I looked I saw that there was a fledgling bird who's leg had got caught in the stockade fence. With the help of a friend we managed to free the bird and saved it's life. If it wasn't for Brutus I would have never known about the bird.

He could have easily torn it to shreds or scared it to death literally, like most people would imagine of a Rottweiler. But that is not the true nature of the Breed, they are the most loving, compassionate, and loyal friends anyone could have. He made sure to keep a safe distance from the bird and got my attention.

I have so many more stories I could share, but This is the one I wanted to share the most. Unfortunately Brutus passed away suddenly in 2008 at age 5. But the 5 years that I had with him were filled with amazing memories and experiences that I will never forget and which I don't believe I can ever experience with any other Breed.

My 5 month old Rottie does this
by: naya

I know exactly what you're talking about! My 5 month old Rottie a a huge baby when it comes to other animals. We have two cats so he knows not to attack them. He'll chase them, but stop about a foot away and just stare at them.

One day a cat jumped into our backyard, and my Rottie sat by me growling and barking a little. When I walked up to him, he ran to the cat and stopped about three feet in front of it. He just sat there and watched it.

He is only 5 months old, so I'll have to see how he turns out, but as of now he's a huge scaredy cat and stays by mommy for protection.

I have a three year old and Otto (my Rott) is best friends with him. They run all around the house together and wrestle around. I love this breed!

My niece is 10 months old and Otto is in love with her, he constantly follows her around licking at her feet. When she cries, he just sits there and whines until she stops.

Absolutely amazing dogs!

Rotties are humble protectors indeed!
by: Jenn

AJ, thank you so much for sharing Brutus with us here.

What a wonderful story that really encompasses the true nature of the Rottweiler. They have a very strong sense of protection, even for other creatures, as evidenced by Brutus.

I can certainly relate to having experiences and a bond like no other that it seems can only be experienced with a Rottweiler.

My second, Chevy has just as much although totally unique of a personality as my girl Savannah did. The bond my husband and I have with him (and her) is absolutely unbreakable.

I'd like to thank you again for sharing a little piece of Brutus with here, and I welcome you to share as many stories as you would like.

You are definitely right about their nature! My one year old female Rottie found a terrified kitten in a tire in our back yard. It had to have been dumped off by someone because we live far from people and there have not been any strays around lately.

She laid by it, even with it hissing and spitting at her, and she just whined until I came near. The little thing was so terrified I had to get gloves and a towel to throw over it and pick it up. After a few hours I was able to handle it without the gloves but a few days later I found her trying to nurse the kitten from her tit!

The kitten just kept sucking even though there was no milk. Now they are best friends, they sleep together, eat together and play together!

It really is a site to see being that the kitten is smaller than the size of my Rottweilers head!
