I love My Rottweiler Smirnoff - She Is Adorable.
Since the passing of my last pet Whitney, who was a female Golden Retriever mix, I decided I needed a new dog friend.
So I decided that I would purchase a Doberman. I really love this breed of dog for their intelligence and agility, however the purchase would have been a 2 year old male and I was uncertain of its temperament.
So I opted to start from infancy, and I purchased a Rottweiler puppy. I was thinking of breeding the dog in the future so I purchased a female instead of a male.
The owner told me how he started breeding and how he got his first Rottweiler. He stated that the mother was imported. One day he got a call from a friend, who works at the Warf, he told him he has a Rottweiler that no one claimed and asked if he wanted the dog. He said yes, and that is how he got started. He also stated that he is not a professional breeder.
Then one day an AKC breeder heard about the dog he had, and asked if he could get his dog to mate with his Rottweiler and that’s how I got my puppy.
He wanted me to pay $10,000 dollars for the puppy but I bargained with him and got her for $7,000 - Yes I bargain well. I watched puppies for about one hour to scrutinize their personalities and temperaments.
I wanted a dog that is trainable and intelligent with the right attitude. He was a bit frustrated with my long diagnoses but who cares, I will be the owner of this new puppy and I don’t intend to breed or own a dog with a bad temperament.
So I made my purchase, found a Smirnoff Liquor box, and took her home in it. Hence the name of my dog Smirnoff. She is now 7 and a half weeks old and just got her second shot. Everyone loves her. She is playful and loves to eat.
