Jasmin the herding Rottweiler
(Little River, SC)
We currently have 3 cats and 3 dogs, one of which is a beautiful Rottie girl of 18 months named Jasmin.
Our cats are not allowed outside except on the enclosed porch. One of our cats has been known to open the door on that porch and get out into the yard.
One night as we took Jasmin, our Rottweiler out for her evening ball chase, she ran from the ball to our cherry tree in the center of the back yard.
After a few seconds, out popped the cat! Jasmin came back to the porch and the cat went back to hiding under the tree. Jokingly, I asked Jasmin to please go get Scout, the cat.
Jasmin immediately ran to the tree, herded the cat out from under the tree and all the way back to the house!
On another occasion, our Pit Bull was not in the mood to get off the couch and go outside when she was being instructed to do so.
So Jasmin being the dominate figure, and of course wanting to go outside but having to wait for us to talk our Pit Bull into going, immediately jumped on the couch, squeezed behind the Pit Bull and politely shoved her off the couch!
Rotties have to be the smartest dogs I have ever encountered...and we are so thankful for ours.
