Leeanna the little big protector

by Kaylee
(Warsa, IN)

Me and my boyfriend were driving home one night and saw a little bundle of rags off the side of the road, and i just had to stop and see what it was. It was a beautiful Rottie pup.

We took her home, gave her a bath and took her to the vet the next morning. She was healthy, but under weight and about 5 months old.

She was the best puppy we ever had. After having her with us for a few weeks, she behaved so well; never tore anything up, never potty'd in the house, and listened very well.

She was a year old when I learned she was a gift from God. . . one late night we were sitting in bed watching the news when Leeanna got up really fast and ran to the front door. I got up and followed her.

Someone was breaking into our backyard. She ran as fast as she could to the back door and broke through the glass to stop the bad man. Leeanna held the man down until the police got to our house.

Never once did she try to bite him, she just stood her ground and protected her mamma. She does not leave my side no matter were I go.

Leeanna is now 3 years old and still the best dog we have ever had. We will love her til the day she goes!

My Two Rotties NEW
by: Lilly

My first one passed at nine years old. I have never been so heart broken. We bought her for $75 off of a pick up truck on the side of the street. We were ignorant and didn't realize how bad it was for him to break up the litter when they were only 4 weeks old until later. Hera was full bred, and was protective, sweet, playful; crate-trained in three days. We took her to training at Pet Smart. She was the only dog that did not yap all of the time. When the others started going nuts, she lay down with her back to them. BUT she had a problem of some kind. I could not use my oven or microwave because she would go nuts when the lights came on when you opened the door. The same was true if you left something on the counter that reflected on the ceiling - she wouldn't stop barking. I couldn't open the bottom drawers or doors of my kitchen cabinets. I had to stop baking. We almost stopped cooking altogether because it these things would upset her too much. She watched TV with us. The funniest incident was when a western was on and a horse walked across the screen. She got up and walked around to the side of the TV to see where the horse went. The one thing I learned from her death was to never, ever, never give your dog human foods such as potato chips, jelly beans, and other similar fried and sugary foods as her "Daddy" did. Also, she loved vegetables and fruit. She would sit beside me while I prepared vegetables for salad. I'd eat a bite of onion, she'd a bite of onion. Later I learned that onions cause anemia. Whatever you do when you get a pet is to find out what NOT to feed them. I have tears I write this. She was my confidante. I could talk to her and she listened -- her ears raised up and she'd cock her head. If she thought it was something upsetting, she'd lean against me.

Now we have Ruby. Bought her from a breeder and brought her home at 8 weeks. She is so sweet. Not destructive at all. She is truly a lap dog. She's 4 now and weighs about 75 lbs. She crawls up in my lap, curls up and goes to sleep. She's very affectionate and laid back. She has not been as easy to train as Hera, but she is very smart. Hera used to destroy her toys - not anything else. Ruby does not destroy anything. She's not a counter surfer. But she's protective. Dennis and I will play fight; she'll watch until she thinks it's time to but in. She'll get between us and just nudge Dennis backwards from me. Never anything aggressive. I would never have any other dog but a Rotty. Sorry this is so long.

Cherish NEW
by: Debby

Unfortunately when she does pass, you will feel empty inside I am a little lost or should I say a lot lost. Cherish every moment that you have with her. Because things happen way quickly that you would never expect! Good luck!

Never felt as safe!
by: Barbara

That's awesome what Leeanna did for you guys! My boyfriend and I were out on the bike one day and didn't get back until after dark. I left the security bar up on the sliding door so we could put the bike away and not have to walk all the way around to the front door.

I walked up the deck steps and into the house. Chance (his story will be on here soon) was in the living room and was already standing when I opened the sliding door.

They truly are a watch and wait type of dog...I was in the dark, with a black jacket, motorcycle helmet and glasses on...and he stood there like a statue with his fur up and eyes peeled on me. As soon as I took a step forward, he took a step forward and started to growl.

I immediately called to him as I took off the helmet and glasses and he came running.

I am so in love with this goofy 70 lb lap dog - but it was at that moment that I had no doubt he would always keep us and our home safe.

You know that your little Leeanna was just doing what most dogs will do - because they love their "people" unconditionally.

We have a Rottie puppy who is now 16 months old. We got her from the shelter in Brampton back in February. They rescued her from a very cruel place. It took her some time to learn that we loved her and would never let anything or anyone EVER hurt her again.

She is just a wonderful girl (Tulley is her name) and she gets along so well with our 8 year old Staffie, Shaq. He's taught her well too and has shown her love and affection just like us. She's still a little underweight, but the vet says she's very healthy and that she will fill out.

When she misbehaves she knows it, and she knows how to get around us too with those beautiful brown eyes of hers. But we also know that she will protect us with her life if needed. We are HER pack and we all take care of each other.

Rottweilers are one of, if not the smartest breed out there and so are American Staffordshire Terriers.

That's why I just don't understand how anyone can hurt them. I'll tell you, I would rather have a four legged animal than most 2 legged ones!!! And I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Good luck to you with Leeanna - I just know she will continue to bring you so much joy and happiness all through her life and I pray it will be a long and good one!!!
