this poor guy was a stray and had been at the shelter for a while. And he is only three months old. I felt so bad for him, I took him home. I don't know ANYTHING about Rotties.

He looks cute, right?? He is a beast!! In the last 24 hours, he has bitten me at least 30 times, has launched himself at me another 20 times, and scratched my arms and legs about 40 times. He is just completely out of sorts, lost, scared and trying to understand what a home is like. I get all that but damn I feel completely beaten up!

Right now, he is sleeping under my feet. It's been hell but he is totally worth it.

He's adorable! Do you have some behavior classes scheduled?

Behaviour/puppy classes are definitely a good idea. And I think he will come around, he just needs to learn what it is to be loved. Ad he is absolutely ADORABLE! So happy that you brought him home :) What did you name him?

He is adorable and you are totally awesome for taking him in!

Sending you positive thoughts that he'll figure out that he's safe and loved soon!

thank goodness you adopted him. for all that struggling you did, somebody would have opted for another breed. I don't know a thing about training puppies (especially without a backyard) but I bet he'll learn and be an amazingly well adjusted pup.

He is gorgeous and I really hope he comes around. It's understandable that he would be scared and confused with so much change but he will settle in soon!

I love him! Looks like my Harley:
Image
She is Rottweiler/German Shepherd. Like Watson her snout is longer than a Rottie, which means less slobber. Best dog ever. My Harley loves people to pieces but she has never gotten along with other dogs. I wish we could have had professional help with that when she was younger, but now she's 13 and an amputee so I'm going to let her act however she chooses.
P.S. if someone tells you he'll calm down in a year or three, don't believe them. Harley is still as hyper as a puppy. I'm glad though.
