I am glad my dog is just a rottweiler. They were bred for pulling carts and a little shepherding. Later guard dogs. His best friend? My cat. They sleep together, play together. I do love rotts. I have never in my life encountered a mean one, despite "reports".
I am sure I will be chewed up for this post, but I stand by it. My dog is just sweet as ever. He got attacked and bitten by a corgi and all he did was yelp and look at me like, "why?" as I was pulling the other dog off of him. No, he's not a guard dog, but makes a great watch dog. Most importantly, he's our family dog. We mind him every moment. He's also an inside dog, which I am sure may make a difference.
