Yet another vicious, child-killing Rottweiler.

From the German (ADRK) official Rottweiler standard:
Temperament: He is descended from friendly and peaceful stock and by nature loves children, is affectionate, obedient, trainable and enjoys working...."
This is Kwan who was quite apprehensive about big dogs. He was very proud when I gave him Cooper's leash; he walked him all over.
I've had five Rottweilers over the last 19 years, and known many more. All have been unfailingly patient with small children, even though often aloof with adults. This is typical of the breed. Any responsible and knowlegable owner will tell you the same.
The German description doesn't reflect the image of these dogs as bloodthirsty killers, now does it?
This was at today's trial, at which we didn't utterly suck. Pictures to follow, when I get them from Mark the official photographer dude.
Phew, long weekend!

Any dog can be mean and any dog can be gentle. Usually it's the owners that make them one way or the other.

Obviously you've raised your dogs to be gentle. Great work!

Thank you!
I don't have kids, but make a point of exposing all my dogs to little kids right from day one. I don't care how big the dog is, he has to realise that if a toddler 1/3 his size says SIT, that butt had better hit the ground!

You have a very pretty dog. Any dog that is worked with and trained or should I say LOVED is gonna be a great dog.

Oh and I don't beleive Rottweilers are child killers either. I think they are missunderstood just like Pitt bulls.

Thanks skittles and animalfamily...he looks bigger than he is, since he is stocky and furry! He weighs a little under 100lbs.
And he is a very good boy. :~)
