I have Loved Rottweilers for years, yet was never in the position to own any dog until a year ago. My Husband and I adopted Remington from a local Rottie rescue group and brought him home on Halloween 2011.
We were told he was around a year old and was a pure bred dog, as far as they could tell. He seemed to have the heart and personality of a Rottweiler, always a clown at home, and a quiet presence in public.
He loves people and was always reserved yet friendly. He also was fearless. Any new experience for him never bothered him - he was game! He even came to work with me, since I work at a nearby Vet hospital.
But as time went on we realized that he was going to be a small Rottweiler. When he topped out at 70 pounds and his body structure started to resemble a hound-y looking Rottweiler - we knew we had a mix.
After looking at him over and over and at pictures on the net, and speaking with some of my co-workers, I began to suspect he really was a Rottie/Beagle mix. I have heard them referred to as Reagles. I have added some pictures so that you can try to decide his make up yourself.
We love Remington and no matter what he looks like on the outside, he is all loyal Rottweiler heart on the inside!
