Athena the Rottie

by Jude Okoji
(Lagos, Nigeria)



Athena is my lovely female, calm dog.

Though as of now I write this, it’s 9 weeks old. But it behaves so matured, when we have our routine walks, it doesn’t chase after other dogs or snarl @ people. It just gives a stare an keeps walking.

I don’t know if that’s right for it to do but I really am ok with that. Once we encountered a matured big dog, it tried doing all it could to come get a sniff of her(including dragging its owner), all she did was look at it (while trotting) and faced where she was headed. I’m getting to love it more and more!

Hi Jude. Your little girl is adorable.. and yes, her behavior is correct for her breed. Rottweilers are NOT aggressive and should not show aggression or fear around other animals or people.

Lots of love and socialization will help her continue to be friendly and confident.

Best of luck with her.

Congratulations NEW

Congratulations on Athena, and Sue is right… as always. Rottweilers are brilliant they watch and assess each situation and meet it correctly. It sounds to me as though Athena has a good owner, not pushing to make her mean creating something in her contrary to her God given nature.
I’ve had Rottweilers for the last 25 years, I’m sure Athena will continue to amaze you.

Thanks Sue. I’m glad you gave me a heads up on that. No cause for unnecessary panic.
