Zeus is a rescue puppy. We were told he is part Rottie and part German Shepherd.  However, I'm not sure if that's the case. He kind of resembles the Rottweiler and I guess I can see German Shepherd, however, he looks to me to be more of a terrier. I have searched all over the internet to try to find a puppy that looks like him so I can try to determine his mixed breed. I still want to keep him, no matter what, but let's face it, every dog owner wants to know what breed their dogs are. Zeus has a very special place in our hearts. He was found in a dumpster tossed away like a piece of trash at the age of 5 weeks. I guess he culd have been the runt, or possibly stolen from his litter, or just the 'unwanted or unsellable' puppy. But, to us he is our little baby boy, and an explosive burst of energy. He has all the active traits of a Rottweiler puppy.  At first we were just going to take him and get him to the vet to make sure he was healthy. We were going to find him a forever home and trust me numerous people wanted him, but we were so picky as to who he would go to, and that's when we decided that we were so picky because he already had found his forever home, and that was right here with us. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what breed he may be?

    He sounds simply darling! As far as breed, without knowing where he came from, it is just a guess. The rescue's guess is about as good as anyone's.

    Thank you for your feed back. We actually got him from the police dept the same day they found him. We took him straight to the vet. He has gained almost two pounds in a week and a half. He is doing great and fitting in very well with the rest of the family!

We got our Chion from our local hs a few years ago..on her form they stated she was untrainable and barked a lot...but two years later she is the sweetest dog I have ever had, she is sweet, loving, and she loves people. Ironically, she is attatched to both my fiancee and I. The only little quirk is that she is picky about food, but otherwise easy to train. Potty training was a little work, but she hasn't had an accident in a while. And she is the BIGGEST baby I have had. She loves attention and knows how to get our attention in varying creative ways. She is hands down the best dog I have ever had.

We just adopted a Mastiff/Great Dane mix.we did a 2 week trial time and he weighed 92 pounds and 2 weeks later he is 96 pounds.He is only a year and a half old. He has a couple things we need to work on like barking and protecting us from those mean killer bunnies and squirrels in our back yard. He chases them with me attached! He is a wonderful addition to our family.

Can a male dog get aggressive???

    Yes, an unneutered male can become aggressive and hard to manage. They usually require a very experienced dog owner who can maintain discipline. Neutering males helps to reduce aggression from developing.

My Rottie is very funny. He loves bubbles and he loves peeping in my room. He is very inquisitive and lovable. I couldn't ask for a better Rottie

Pit Bulls are not dangerous animals. They are a reflection of their owner. If the owner is aggressive then the dog is mean. It's like the old saying, "The gun doesnt kill people, people kill people". Its not the dogs fault if it's trained to kill, it's the person that trained it. Chris H.

    Well I totaly agree. I have a red-nose pit and his name is Tank. He loves to be around people and he is nice to everyone well except to people that treat him wrong and that never happened before, when we leave him at home when we go on trips is that normal?
  • sara - 2011-09-07
    I disagree. I had a Pit Bull. I got him at 6 weeks old. He was the sweetest thing ever. I had him for 4 yrs. He was always handled gently. I only gave him possitive reinforcment. He would roll over for a belly rub any time a child came around. One day totally unprovoked he bit a family friend. OK so he tore him apart and the man needed plastic surgury. The man was well known to the dog. The dog liked him. I had to put my sweet baby down. Anyone who says its not the dog its the owner....has just been lucky so far. Pit bulls are totally unpredictable!

    What dogs are predictable? I was bitten by a chow. He belong to a dear friend. I had been around and interacted with the dog several times prior to the incident. Just that day, I went to answer the phone and he attacked. I believe it was the quick movement on my part. At the time I had a chow myself when the incident occurred. Are all chows bad? NO! You are stating that all pit bulls are bad because of your situation. The way it sounds to me, you did not have control over your dog. The same as my friend, she loves her dog, but her dog lack obedience and she lacked controlling him. You as a dog owner should know your dogs temperment, likes and dislike and their body language. The dog most likely gave some sign that something was not right, you and the person who was bit did not notice it. Plus you have to remember they are not human they are still dogs not people. You can love your dog, but you have to maintain control over your dog especially around people. It's best to make sure your dog is properly trained and socialized.

    Thank you, I love my pitty and for the lady that said pitt bulls are vicious and unpredictable...like you said what dog isn't? The dog wasn't unpredictable...you were...you never trust the dog therefore the dog never trusts you. And that person must of done something to the dog for him to attack him...dogs don't forget faces just like us humans don't.

I don't quite agree with the aggresive part. My chihuahua is very sociable and actually cries when other dogs leave after playing and he cries when a human leaves expecially when I leave or my sister or someone from our household. I'll admit he snaps at us sometimes but he doesn't go mad. Like for eg if someone brings a nailclipper close to him he'd snap. I don't know why he snaps he was always comfortable with it. He's the cutest and the funniest dog in the world I love him to bits. I just have a question how do I get him past his fear? Why is he so clingy? I like it a lot but when I go out to friends and stuff he hold me back.

    It sounds like he may not have had good socialization training when he was young. Being very attached to you is a typical resultanting behavior. Some suggestions are to set up a daily routine by providing regular times that are dedicated to him (that he can begin to count on), and other times that are not for him (again that he can count on). Also try crate training as it can provide a special protected space of his own. Once he becomes comfortable with having and being in his own space, then you may be able to go out easier.
