Hi! I am Sue


I have 2 Rotties. Auggie is the Mom, she will be 6 in August. I kept one of her puppies (she had 13) and that is Inga, she will be 3 this month. They are my babies. Unfortunately
Auggie is fighting Lyme's disease right now. She is getting better though!
Inga is such a little baby! I made them into such mushes!

Hi, I'm Jo and my husbands name is Joe, we had a Rotti named Roxy, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on October 20, 2004. We love her sooo much. We went and bought another puppy, and he's 4 weeks old, and his name is Rocky. We never raised a puppy before. Roxy was a rescue dog, and Rocky, we picked up from a breeder. He is too cute...

4 WEEKS???? That is entirely too young to take a pup from it's mother. The only time something like that would be acceptable would be if the mother has died, or is refusing to nurse the pups. Even then the pups should be kept with mom until a minimum of 8 weeks of age. I don't know who you got this pup from, but they do not sound like ethical breeders.

You know, you are correct. I've talked to a few people, and they agreed that 4 weeks was too young to take him home. I've also researched (yes, i know, after the fact!), and found that the breeder should've kept him longer. From what I gathered, he was a BACK YARDBREEDER! At the time, I thought it odd he was selling them so young,the parents were right there, and he showed us both of them. I thought that was ok. He also had 3 other dogs in addition to the 2. All in all, we have him now, and no, he may not be show material, but we love him, he's our baby. I realize the downfalls that it means, temperament, physical attributes, health issues, etc, etc... We're not going to breed him, he will be getting neutered shortly.After we lost our first rescue rottie, we were devastated. Aftershe died, we just couldn'tthink straightanymore. And when we foundour new baby,there werenoother questions. We feel in love with him at first sight. I'm not saying it's right to purchase puppies from a BYB, I understand the challenges we may come across (my other dog had cancer.), and I appreciate your concern. Thank youfor the input.

I'm new to the forum, but not new to Rotts. My newest boy is almost seven months old and 78lbs. I've had him since he was almost 8 weeks old (he was 2 days shy of 8 weeks). His name is Diablo, and the total opposite of his name. Anyways thanks for letting me join. Diablo.
