There is a litter of Rottie puppies two weeks old in New Mexico, and my best friend & I each have a deposit on on pet-quality babies from the litter. Almost two years ago we lost our old (10 year old) rotties to bone cancer in the same week. Now it looks like we’re going to have litter mates. Puppies should be big, gorgeous, and with fabulous temperaments. We met the dad here in Denver yesterday; he is an absolutely beautiful dog, wonderfully friendly, and with numerous championships in show and obedience. Saw a video of mom, who has a similar pedigree and is a herding dog, too. All health qualifications (hips, elbows, thyroid, eyes, etc) are excellent. Both parents have excellent manners; many prior offspring have been excellent working & show dogs.
This will be my third spoiled~rotten~weiler, and I am just so excited! Since I know several people who are serious rottie breeders, I’ll have plenty of guidance in raising my new baby. (Rotties are not for anyone, they can be tough dogs to raise right.) My last one was an incredibly sweet, intelligent 115lb marshmallow who I am sure would have let anyone in the house, and loved pulling the neighborhood kids up & down the block in a cart.
Did I mention I’m excited?
