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!

    He looks like a German Rottie because of his snout, color and markings, but his hair is really long and he has brown on his ears. That would suggest a mix of something else... I think you need to wait until he gets older to see what characteristics come out from his parents. You're lucky to have him no matter his mix. Rotties are great dogs... I have one and he's the best! Congrats!

    There is no age that they start. Really depends on the dog.  He may not have found a reason to bark yet.

    Same problem with my 5 month rottie too
  • GT - 2014-07-26
    When he needs to protect you, bring your attention to something or feels a threat. That is the only time mine barks and he's 5! :o)

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

I have an 8 month old mastiff and I was wondering if it was worth starting joint guard now with her to try and avoid problems in the future?? any suggestions or is it only for when they do have joint problems? thanks

    I've seen joint problems in Saint Bernards, it's uncomfortable for them. But I'm not sure when it's best to start joint guard, I bet your veterinarian could give you some good advice on that.

My rottie was the last of the litter, she loves everyone that walks into our house, if a robber came she'd lick them to death, she is scared of other dogs even little white fluffy ones, she is scared of the mower and the waves at the beach or anything that's loud really. We think she's scared of everything because she had a cone over her head when she was young because she had desexing and her extra toe removed. But she is a great and very very affectionate dog, may not be the best guard dog but the best, best friend ever.

We have a one year old great pyrenees named Mochi. He is the sweetest dog but certainly has a mind of his own. I purchased him to be a goat guardian but he prefers to guard the couch. He chews our pillows, steals our laundry and sits on people, the other dogs, cats....This is def my new favorite breed of dog!

    Pyrenes are wonderful totally great dogs/companions. Most likely he will HERD the goats in time and do it quite naturally. For the first year or so, they prefer to herd their humans. Just enjoy and yes, they think they are a lap dog and they can be huge.
  • Espinay - 2014-02-17
    Pyrs are NOT herding dogs. They are guardians. While a flock may move with a Pyr when under threat they do not round up or move their charges the way a herding dog does. They work in a totally different way. To learn more about how livestock guardians work I recommend going to www.lgd.org

I have 3 month old rottweiler she's very weak. I'm giving her puppy feed and dairy and multivitamins but no effect. What should I give to her

    Rottweilers are usually pretty active puppies so I would be concerned as you say she is weak.  A good puppy food and water should be all you initially need.  If you feel she is weak, I'd get her to a vet and have her checked out.  Could be worms or just sick - could be nothing but you would want to know.

    Feed your puppy with carbohydrates food. Like mashed rice,yam, feed cereal etc
