Tomorrow my hubby, myself and our 7 month old GSD mix puppy, Luna, will be traveling to Madison, WI to a Rottie rescue to select Luna's new big brother! The rescue owner has selected a few dogs she feels are suitable for us and we will be meeting them at 2pm CST tomorrow. After we (including Luna) have made our selection, we will be going to a pet friendly hotel for the night. We'll pick up our new "son" on Sunday am (after he's had a nice bath) and make the 5.5 hour trek home.

Wheeeeee!!!

Congratulations!
Thank you!

Rotties are gorgeous dogs!
I agree!


I find them a bit scary though, but i guess that's kind of the point :)
Actually... it's not really the point. ;) I just have always loved Rotties, and after research have decided that a Rottie would fit in well with my family, which consists of me, my hubby, our puppy, and our two kitties (we'll be bringing home a "cat tested" Rottie).

Rotties can be intimidating, I agree, but if raised/trained properly they are amazing dogs.

Congratulations... rotties are a breed I hold close to my heart they are teddy bear-cuddle bugs. You will love how their whole butt shakes when they are excited.

I don't think Rotties are as intimidating as, say, Dobies. I knew one at a park years ago and he was such a slobber monster. :D His name was Sluggo and the name fit him to a T! I always looked forward to seeing him. He was just a big love bug! ;)

Take a look at Inga's sig...how can that face be scary!?

Alphadog, come on over and come up to my fence. I guarantee you you won't stand very close to it, even tho it is 6' tall and very substantial.

;) :p :cool: :D

A correct Rottweiler should be sociable in public, and many are quite friendly, however, the correct dog will vigorously and seriously defend what he feels to be his turf.

Are you going to see Joan Sweeney?
I am! We've done a lot of corresponding via email and she seems like an amazing person!

Wow that's really cool! Rotties are cute as puppies, I hope he and Luna get along well. What are you naming your Rottie pup?
We are actually going to be getting an adult dog, most likely between the ages of 2-4. As far as a name is concerned, we'll keep his name if we like it, but otherwise we'll consider changing it to something more fitting if we don't. We'll brainstorm after we meet him. :)

This is true. My rotties will meet you at the door and it's not a tag wagging experience until we get there. We just had to put signs up due to an increase in salesman at the door that if you knock on the door do NOT open the screen door.....lol. If I feel uneasy with who is on the otherside of the door my Dutch won't leave and he is not wagging his butt, he sits right beside me and won't budge. If we know the person or feel comfortable with them, they will have their butts wagging waiting for attention. They pick up on alot! It's amazing. Of course it's not just rotties that do this.....lol.

Congrats on your new rottie! Can't wait to see pics. They really are a wonderful breed of dog and we love them! We have 3 in the house with us. They will steal your heart! They really do have a bad rap though. Enjoy your new boy!

I'm jealous! I would love to have a rescue Rottie! You MUST post pictures immediately upon your return...I intend to live vicariously through you.

My Abba is really amazing at telling friend from stranger. He won't bark when people he knows come to the door, but if it's someone he hasn't met, he let's us know when they are still down the path, not even near the door. Pretty cool.
