Bruno came in to us from a home. He is a lovely dog with lots of character but struggles to warm to people and loyalty needs to grow before he trusts people. He has struggled with many things before becoming comfortable with a few of us here. He is very shy when being handled, however, during his time here he has learnt that human hands are not a scary thing. With that in mind the new owner must be someone who is comfortable introducing him to strangers slowly. Bruno doesn’t want people walking up to him and showing hands in his face.
A home experienced with the Rottie breed would be essential and an adult only home with no other pets is also vital for Bruno to be a happy boy. He has shown to be good with other dogs however, he would be more comfortable being the only pet.
Also, due to his breed he does show guarding behaviours around high value items such as food. This is easily managed if the person taking on Bruno doesn’t mind putting the working in using positive reinforcement to help train him.
The Rottweiler is traditionally good-natured, placid in basic disposition, very devoted, obedient, biddable and eager to work, their behaviour self-assured, steady and fearless. They react to their surroundings with great alertness. Male rottweilers have higher confidence, sharpness, and defense and play drives than females
