    And I would call it Destructor.

    Not really sure I'd want a Raccoon running around the house.

    Rotties are an awesome breed, i currently own a bullmastiff x Rottweiler but grew up with a pure rottie. As long as theyre socalised with other dogs and people from a young age you'll be fine but remember that no matter how much training and socialising you do with them theyll allways be weary of strange humans and dogs do theres allways potential with them for a serious accident if the stranger doesn't know how to behave appropriatly round them.

    Also id never rely on anydog as a guard dog, although they will probably bark, growl, bark and charge an intruder most "guard dogs" fear bite and run in this situation, they can only be relied on as a man stopper when properly trained then still many dogs only see it as a game and wont bite unless the "intruder" is wearing the protective sleeve as used in training.

    They work well as a visual deterant but dont expect them to be man stippers without spending alot of time and effort training them in protecrion work.

    I knew a guy who had a raccoon as a pet. They're hard to keep up with, impossible to keep caged and the little turds may, in some cases, be smarter than their owners.

    It's definitely closer to a roommate that you support than a domesticated animal.

    To be honest id prefere a trained " attack" because theres no higher obedience level than a properly trained personal protection dog. Theyre less likly to randomly attack a stranger than youre average once a week obedience trained rottie.

    The dog attacks on command one of the trials is where an attacked aproaches the handler and dog and the dog barks on command to warn away attacker. He then steps away apriaches the handler again and starts to pat him down and rummage through his pockets, to dog is expected not to react at all, they only bark ir attack on command. Yet this level of obedience requires a better dog and even more experienced handler than i or many others could dream of achieving.

    A dog with a high defence drive really is a different caliber of dog and my opinions is that you shouldnt get a rottie, shepard , dobie etc if youre not willing to teaining weekly through out its whole life. Even if you dont fancy going down the whole shutzhund training route dog agility and tracking work is fun for both owner and dog and builds a good bond between both.

    I've not had much contact with them (I was taken down by one once as a demo wearing full body padding and 'birdcage' head gear...the fucker went for the armpits where the arm and torso padding met), and I understand that sniffer dog handlers often bring thier dogs home. But are dogs trained to attack people safe in a family enviroment?
    As long as you're a competent handler and the rest of youre family are sufficiently educated on how to treat such a dog then yes i believe so.

    I base this opinion on a family i know. The parents were both police dog handlers who's dogs ( german shepards) came home with them, they even bred their own dogs they used and at one point had the mother and three of her pups which the family owned were all serving police dogs.

    The son and daughter now do private security with dogs both using rotties which are also family pets. I think youre more likely to have trouble with a rottie that is untrained than a trained personal protection dog because of their dominant nature. You need to decide who can and cannot enter the home not the dog. Theres a massive difference between a properly trained personal protection dog and a dog that a so called guard dog which is just left in the yard all day, the yard dogs that end up poorly socalised are the ones that end up mauling the neighbours kid.

    I dont intend to do any protection work with my rottie cross just fir the fact that she doesn't have the right temperament for bite work and that i just dont have the desire to do it anyway. My dogs a pet so ill stick with the obedience and agility for now and maybe work towards the tracking skills.

    I have no desire for Adel to become an attack dog. I wish her to look like a rotty and behave like a Labrador.
    She is smart enough, a bit stubborn, but definitely smart and a quick learner.
    Her sister came to the neighborhood!!! when they met it was the first time i saw her jumping on and playing with another dog (even another puppy), it seems they remembered each other! So now she has her sister as a friend plus some other friends (we meet up for play time with the dogs. )
    I wish i could upload some new pics, it doesn't let me..She is so pretty.

    That fine just remember to get her to puppy obedience classes as soons as she has all her vaccinations it really is a must with a rottie. Dont be disapointed if she doesnt turn out like a lab temperament wise in my experience they are very puppy like and friendly with other dogs and strangers if theyre well socalised up and till about 2 and a half / 3 years old then they develop their defensive instint and will be aloof with strangers. This doesnt mean aggressive just means they wont be as overly friendly but still will tolerate other people and dogs.

    Oh and another thing no matter how good they are with other dogs they will never back down from a confrontation and will fight, bear this inmind when meeting strange dogs.
    G

    Good luck with her and id like to see some photos, just remember early socalisation abd continual training and firm not harsh handling is the key to owning a rottie.

    edit: i just re- read your post and wanted to add a bit more. Its goid that you take her to play with other pups but its still important that her socalisation is a bit more formal so she learns to follow comands and work with you while surrounded by other dogs. Playing is fine but if her only interaction with other dogs is all ways ruff and tumble playing then they can tend to keep this habit when theyre fully grown and it can lead to dominance issues with other dogs. She wont allways be able to rough and tumble with every dog she meets.

    How would you discipline your rotty pup? lets say she keeps jumping on top of the bed?
    BTW can you upload some pics of your cross? sounds amazing.

    Here she is trying to eat a wrought-iron end table. And a foam roller. And a Chinese vase.
