I had the best dog a person could have. I remember the first time I laid my eyes on a Rottweiler. I knew right then and there I had to have one. I finally got one. A friend of ours sold her to us. I never registered her because I wasn’t planning on breeding her. We named her Lacy.
We heard stories on how Rottweiler’s turn on their masters. We had always said, if Lacy ever growls or snaps at us she is gone. She never did. She protected me more then I could imagine. Anyone strange came up and the hair on the back of her neck stood up I knew to let her protect. I remember so many times my husband would fuss at her. He loved her dearly even though he would tell you he didn’t.
Anyway, she would run and hide behind me and she would peek around my legs to see if my husband was coming. I would stand between her and him and get him to leave her alone. In return, when my husband would decide to pester me she would stand between me and him. She never growled at him or anything. It was just a game her and I had going. We had her for 11 1/2 years and we had to say goodbye to her.
A disc in her back separated and it got to the point she couldn’t walk. She would give us a look that she was in pain and she wanted help. During that time she did not once growl or snap at us. So anyone who claims that Rottweiler’s will turn on you, I am here to say that is so not true. It depends on how you raise them. We raised Lacy as a loving pet and she always brought laughter to our home. She is truly missed.
