I love the breed, but I've had good and bad experiences with them. My mom loved Rotts, so I rescued one and she was a wonderful dog, she started out liking other dogs, but after a couple weeks without a dog around she became reactive. That was that dog's only fault. She cried like a baby when I came to visit...my mom used to say that is how she knew it was me at the door. When that dog passed away(cancer), the very same day I got my mom a Rott puppy. She is 8 now and a good dog. As she gets older she gets nervous every now and then when the kids are running through the house, but she takes herself out of the situation. My trainer has two Rott's that are beautiful, well trained, and love everyone. I did get bit by a Rott once, the people were getting rid of her and I was going to take her. When I put my hand down for her to smell she got me. No blood, but she hit a nerve and my whole arm was numb. A Rott also attacked my golden when he was a puppy. That was really bad, I thought my puppy was a goner. Everything turned out okay and I don't hold anything against the breed, I still love them.
