I saw this nice German dog for sale and decided maybe I should take him instead!

What do you think?

I certainly like him xD

As for price...I'm not sure I could offer enough for this dog for him to be let go!!

He is nice but there are a few things I do not like about that dog. I guess we are all sort of picky about our favorite breeds though. :)
He does look nice with you Xeph.
Are you thinking about getting a Rottie truly? Wow! Who thought a Shepherd person could be swayed to the dark side. ;) :)

For really and for true ^_^ But not for a couple years yet

Hey! I'm not COMPLETELY abandoning the Shepherds! It's still black and tan! Its ears just never stood....and the tail just kinda fell off *whistles innocently*

Are show Rotts' tails supposed to be cut so short? Moose's tail is at least 3 vertebrae longer than that. I don't like that short look. I think my Moose is handsomer :p . I'll have to post some really good pics of him and see what the show people think.

Rotties are docked short, yes...some have no tail at all. Just Rottie butt. I don't like over extended Rottie tails, and I think the one on this dog is just fine :)

Is it just me, or does this dog look really stout? I don't know, I haven't seen that many Rotties up close and maybe this guy is an excellent breed specimen... but in the first picture especially, he looks a little short.

I don't know what gets the show judges hot and bothered--and don't really care--but he looks pretty good to me. As in many breeds, there are different types that appeal to different subsets of fanciers. I see a pretty well balanced working dog. I'd hate to have my life depend on a 6 ft. cyclone fence keeping him off me. He could probably go over, and if not, he could probably go through.

He looks well muscled, but he'd slim down if he was worked on cattle. He doesn't look to have such a heavy frame that that would be out of the question. I'm not a fan of the Gargoyle-weilers.

Love his face. Reminds me of Inga's dog.

.. However (and not that I know anything about show dogs) to me his hind end seems out of proportion with his front. :confused: Maybe it's just because he's not standing 100% square in the first pic. He just looks a little bit front heavy.

He's a baby, has some growing to do. The rear will come with the rest of the body that isn't quite there yet

When a Rottweiler's tail is docked it is supposed to be at the first joint making it very short. The tail is only supposed to be long enough to extend the topline, visually.
My Olivers tail is a little longer as well. He was a rescue and not a good specimen of the breed from a show perspective. That said, he is a wonderful dog and I can find no fault in his personality. :)

Miss Mutt, yes, I think his face looks much like my dog. :D Pretty cute.

I think Xeph needs to get a Rottie. What do you all think? (hint, hint)

How old is he? He looks all puppy to me X3

Adorable, by the way! My favorite part about Rottis are their eyes, and his are very pretty =3

18 Months :) He's a lot of face right now (I like it, it adds character :D), but his eyes are pretty expressive ^_^
