Bonnie Toms April 14, at 9: Hope you have many more years to enjoy with your boy. I have had many great dogs in my life but Lucy is by far the most perfect dog of my life.
He has more people that know him than know me! He had a loud and serious bark, but safety was never, ever a concern. Karen May 21, at My friend has had experience with herding dogs, but not with Rottweilers. When he was younger, he looked exactly like the picture above.
I was recently asked by a friend to help her evaluate a dog from adoption. The young dog she fell in love with was an Australian Shepherd Rottweiler mix.

She is not protective and is basically a Black and Tan lab. Sally Hammond April 27, at 5: The young dog she fell in love with was an Australian Shepherd Rottweiler mix. I adopted a Rottweiler Aussie mix. I rescued mine a little over 3 years ago and the humane society believed he was about a year old as did my Vet.
I have had dogs my entire life, including an Aussie and a German Shepard, and I can say that she is the best companion I have ever had. Steve May 26, at 8: Karen Shanley June 8, at 9: I adopted a Rottweiler Aussie mix.

I wonder though what his life expectancy will be? But depending on the dominant genes could wind up more toward one end of the spectrum or the other. I never tried to work her as a herding dog, but she would walk within the herd—not afraid australian shepherd rottweiler mix the cows, yet also not trying to chase them for no reason.
At first Mickey was highly aggressive. But it can take a tremendous amount of love, patience, understanding, and the right kind of training to turn a dog around. Hope you have many more years to enjoy with your boy.

Sarah December 2, at 5: Lindsey, how lucky for your boy that you took him in. And they all took a couple of years to settle in, get with the training program, and go on to live wonderful, beloved lives. She is extremely loving and very protective. As would be expected for this mix, she demonstrated that she was very trainable.

Karen Shanley June 8, at 9: She was loyal, protective without aggression and so easily trainable. Just like a human baby can look way more like one parent than the other and have way more personality traits , so can dogs. He plays tug with me and my grandchildren but I taught him to let go if you tickle under his chin. She lived to be 17 years old and we miss her ever day.
