    Rottrievers looking for a good home

    I have two two month old puppies, one male one female, to give away to a good home (we will make sure of that, you will need to pass the interview by the Mrs first ;-) )

    Mother is golden retriever, father is rottweiller. They are going to be big dogs, they are already 8 Kg at 2 month, so you will need a house with a big garden. They are very playful, they have been raised in the family with other dogs so they are very social, very comfortable with humans and other dogs.

    If you want a dog who is going to be a good friend for your family but also a good guardian for your home, they are the dogs. Our Golden are wonderful friendly dogs but if a stranger enters our home, they will probably lick him to death but that's about it.

    The male really look like his dad, the female like her mom. In term of character, they are the same, playful but fearless.

    PM me if interested

    We are in Bangkok
    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do

    Are these pups the offspring of those rottweillers who killed your dogs?

    I admire the time invested getting them to this stage ... socialisation etc ... and really hope you find them a home.

    The retrievers are amazing critters but bred to use their mouths a lot in hunting, retrieving fowl etc. They like to use their mouths a lot for first few years ... and you have to be super strict to manage that ... coupled with the power with a rottie could possibly be a handful for your average dog owner.

    Choosing a mix breed dog can be a great way to go when getting a new dog for the family – and increasingly, more people are choosing to bring home a Golden Retriever Rottweiler mix because of its loyalty to the family and constant upbeat attitude.
    Golden Rottie Puppy Quick Stats

    A combination of a Golden Retriever and a Rottweiler
    Average estimated lifespan of between 8 – 12 years
    Average estimated weight of between 70 – 90 pounds
    Average height of approximately 24 – 28 inches
    Training difficulty – Medium
    Grooming requirement – Medium
    Exercise requirement – Medium
    Appearance of a Golden Rottweiler

    Golden Rottie mixes have a very unique look and will not be mistaken for either of the parent breeds.
    A Golden Rottweiler, in most cases, will have the long coat and stature of a Golden Retriever, yet they will have the black and brown markings of a Rottweiler. They also tend to take most of their facial features from the golden side, though their eyes tend to look more like a Rottweiler’s.
    Some Rottweiler Retriever mixes will have shorter hair thanks to their Rottweiler side, but their hair usually is not as short as a pure bred Rottie. Hair length can vary greatly from dog to dog, but it is always obvious that the dog is a mix.
    Exercising for Golden Rotties

    Golden Retriever Rottweiler mix puppies are a combination of two very energetic dogs.
    Like their parent breeds, Golden Rotties require a lot of exercise starting from a very young age. If they do not receive enough of it, a Golden Rottweiler mix can become very restless even slightly aggressive.
    In addition to daily walks, games like fetch will give the dog a chance to burn off some energy. Just make sure to avoid playing games that might entice the dog to challenge the owner’s dominance.
    Games like tug of war could inspire the dog to show some aggression toward the owner and should be avoided.
    Health Concerns of a Golden Retriever and Rottweiler Mix

    One of the main problems with a Rottweiler Retriever mix is that both parent breeds have a well known history of hip dysplasia.
    Hip dysplasia is a birth defect that becomes a problem later in life. The hip joint does not fit correctly into the socket and as the dog grows older the hips become weak and the dog can no longer stand.
    Another common health issue with Golden Rottweilers is allergies. This is because Golden Retrievers tend to have a lot of food and skin irritant allergies and this can be passed down to their pups.
    In most cases, these allergies are not deadly to the dog and just results in an uncomfortable rash. Treatment simply involves ensuring that the dog eats the proper type of food and applying medicated lotion to any rashes that arise.
    Temperament of a Golden Retriever and Rottweiler Mix

    Golden Rotties tend to be very loyal to their families and they usually love lots of play time. Many Golden Rottweilers also love to go swimming when they are given the chance.
    The Rottweiler side of the puppy tends to cause the dog to guard the family very diligently. However, if they are mistreated or are not trained to respect humans, Golden Rotties can become very aggressive and will bite if they are antagonized.
    Though Golden Rottweilers can seem a little intimidating at first glnce, when they are raised in a happy and healthy environment, they can be some of the sweetest and most loving dogs around.
    So if you get the chance you should definitely consider a Golden Retriever Rottweiler Mix since, when treated properly and given enough exercise, they can be some of the best pets for both family and singles.

    Definitively. If you don't have experience with "big" dogs, they aren't probably for you

    I didn't say it before but my dog (retriever) works couple days a week for a fee ... customs, personal protection demonstrations ... and then he comes back as part of the family and we keep him very active. So I've a little experience. Rotties are lovely critters but one of the few I am truly scared of .. not in the sense of handling them as they are quite docile really ... but more in terms of what they are capable of doing ... they hold a grudge and can turn on their handler and I would need to know the dog very well before having a child around. Cross breed adds another dimension.

    No worry. You have a reasonable attitude. They are not toy dogs. I much prefer to find someone who has experience raising large dog than someone who is going to dump them in a couple of month because he realizes he is not able to handle them.

    The problem with the dogs next door is they are a gang. You can take a few nice dogs, once they are together it's a totally different story. One start a fight that would be without consequence otherwise, the other join and that how accident happen. So the problem is not with the dogs individually, it is with the pack. And the irresponsible owner who can't control them.

    The problem with the so-called dangerous breed is more often than not the owner. Very often people suffering from SPC (Small Penis Complex) adopt a big dog to compensate. With the same consequences when these people buy a gun. But when a responsible person adopt a large dog and raises it in a stable environment they usually make great family pets.

    As I said, they are raised in a family atmosphere. They are walked outside twice a day (we live in a gated village, no soi dogs). They are very comfortable with humans and other dogs.

    I hope they get good homes
    I would have loved to have taken the both of them we have 4 small dogs now but I am not there to train them at the moment
    My wife feeds and the kids play with them but they never interact with the dogs to train them
    These dogs require a lot of exercise and personal involvement
    It's a pity I am in the UK they would be great I have a large garden and it would have made the locals think twice about entering unannounced

    Lovely looking little mutts.

    They'd love exploring the farmland at the back of my place in Isaan. But tragically I'm not there.
