Rocky - the rottweiler , A clown with family
(Kalyan, Thane, India)
Rocky - little spoiled kid of mumma
My little kiddo rocky
who is 18 months now, weighing 43 kgs, height 26.5 inches at shoulder
He behaves like a clown running to hide behind my wife's legs or geting into her lap to escape when my two naughty daughters harass him :)
When some one from family visit, he is so friendly, wagging his tail getting their attention....
but totally different when any stranger or guests arrive.
like a gentleman :) grownup security in charge
NO BARKING or unwanted noises. Just sniff them, inspect them and sit near to family observing them till they are at home and only leave to his place after they leave our house :)
a perfect combination of companionship and guarding :)
love this breed and the inbuilt intelligence this breed possess.
Girish - you just described perfect Rottweiler guarding, it's exactly the way they should handle it!
Sadly so many people feel that their Rottie should bark, or growl or act threatening to strangers. Not true. They only do that if they feel that their family is in imminent danger.
Rocky displays the discerning guardian behavior that is correct.... he's intelligent enough to know what is needed. I'm feel more proud of this dog every day :)
