Pixie, my Rottweiler, is always right their. If she hears a loud voice she is sure to belch a thunderous bark back.
My children ride her like a donkey. My 5 year old dresses her and pulls on her ears. She always walks away if she gets over whelmed.
I have owned different breeds in the past, but Pixie has a soul, and is highly intelligent. She is an undocked Rottweiler (see the long tail), she is a registered service dog and she is a part of our family.
I dread the day Pixie has to go but I will love her forever. Shes now 3 years old. I just wish breeders would try adding longevity of life to dogs.
I'll always provide a good home to this breed and it will be the next I get.
