Nice to see u on board. My first impression when I heard the news of "Rottweiler attacked again!!" early morning from the radio was, "Why ROTTWEILER again??" and immediately my conclusion was, another irresponsible owner. Was wonder what is the purpose of those ppl keeping a rottweiler. Is rottweiler adorable? Well, before 8 weeks then yes, they are adorable but not when they are in their full grown of size. Is rottweiler really a good guard dog? My answer will be, YES and NO. Yes if the owner really understand their dog with stable temperament and really willing to spend lots of time to train them at least the basic obidience. Some Rottweilers are not a suitable guard dog at all especially if they are coming from some Eastern Europe where the breeders tend to breed tame tamperament of Rottweiler so that it is suitable to keep as a pet. Therefore, as an owner, we really need to understand the dog especially ROTTWEILER breed. For me,Rottweiler is not for everybody who just love to own a BIG dog which can make them look really macho when the walk with them at the street but does not understand the breed very well. Rottweiler need a lot of time to play with ppl and run free rather than just chaining them or putting them in the crate.
The worst part of the incident was, the owner didn't even own any dog license. If they are not keen enough to even pay for the lisence, why should they deserve to keep a dog from the first place? Therefore, as a Rottweiler lover, we should point out those irresponsible owner and stop them from keeping Rottweiler before the government totally bend on this breed. Or else, everything will be just too late and Rottweiler breed will become extinct in our country.
