You know, I think people like that actually believe that they're breeding the best, only that their idea of best and other's ideas of best are different.

"Our Mastiff Style Rottweiler lines"

The last time I looked they were two different breeds...

FatCat is the perfect name for him. Poor dogs.

Has any one emailed them?

And I remember because I thought the dogs were odd looking even then, and I wasn't even half as dog geeky as I am now

I remember those ads also from Dog Fancy and Dog World magazines. This person has been involved with "breeding" and "training" a very long time. *shudders*

I wondered the same thing when I read that. The original Rin Tin Tin was not a very large GSD. He was lighter boned and smaller than the average GSD show dog of today. GSD's have grown considerably larger over the years, not smaller. And Rottweillers come from Italy? Where did this person come up with crap like this?

She's right about the Italy thing, sort of. But when the breed started, there was no Italy. There was Rome. And the Roman shepherds had these dogs they used as LGDs and drovers, and these dogs, wearing the shepherd's money around their necks, would accompany the shepherds and the flock on the tranhumance--and that's how they ended up in Germany. The Germans purchased/were given some of these dogs and turned them into cattle herders. But the original dogs would bite too high on the cattle and wreck expensive cuts of meat, so they started to breed them shorter--giving the Rotts we know today a rectangular rather than square build. Eventually, the new, cattle herder version of the original Roman dogs were named after the German town of Rottweil.

Or that's the story I learned in a Roman history class anyway.

Nevertheless, she isn't trying to recreate a Roman type; she's just trying to make money.

Shouldn't have looked.

As sad as the GSDs and Dobies looked on her page...........I think the Rotties made me more sad. They were boasting "145 lbs and he's only 18 months old!" *shakes head*

She still advertises in Dog Fancy. Makes me sick. I know years ago alot of people were trying to educate her but she wants no part of it. She is making to much money. Disgusting.

The Shepherds are almost all grossly overweight and have huge frames. I prefer the sleek look of a well-bred GSD tyvm! The Rotties looks like mastiffs as others have said! It's disgusting, why is stuff like this allowed?
