(Englewood, CO, USA)
8 weeks old
My boyfriend and I rescued our Rottie-German Shepherd mix from the Colorado Puppy Rescue last June, and he was only 8 weeks old.
At first, my boyfriend was not too keen on the idea of adopting a rottweiler, given their reputation. I managed to convince him because I think they're the best dogs in the world, and the second he saw our puppy, he was in love.
When we adopted Maximus (at the time his name was #463), he was very sick and malnourished, and we were afraid he'd be stunted in his growth for his entire life. After exercising him, and feeding him a ton of meat, he became a fully energized, and full sized, puppy.
Maximus is 5 months old now and he's the greatest dog in the world. Regardless of the bad hype, Rotties are by far my favorite dogs on the planet.
