Xheus Evolution

February 2, 2009 09:41

So, after 8 months, I am finally learning how to post pictures on  As many of you know, my rottweiler died in 2007, and we brought home a new baby boy in May 2008.   He is a beautiful healthy boy.  It's too bad that rottweilers have such a poor reputation, exploited by owners who use their power for bad purposes.  And sadly, this type of dog is not for the lazy and/or ignorant person either.   Rottweilers are intelligent and hardworking creatures.  They need owners who are willing to take the lead and exert all their energy in a positive way.   You should not get a rottweiler if you are planning on giving him or her tons of time and attention.  Rottweilers are good for people who have a farm because they are herding dogs.  


Xheus is German Rottweiler.  It's illegal to dock their tails in Europe.


Xheus at 6 1/2 weeks old, stretching out for his afternoon nap.

8 weeks old, the ugly period.

A giant at 3 months.

He's not allowed upstairs.  He tests my mom all the time at 5 months old.

7 months old he could fit a head in that mouth.

At 10 months old, he is a majestic creature with his black and brown coat set apart from the cold, white day.  



Rottweilers are great and rewarding animals to nurture.  Before getting one, make sure you can give it the proper environment and the stimulation it needs.   My rottweiler loves, people and children.  He is also great around female dogs ;0)

He weighs a whopping 103 pounds! He is still growing for the next 2 years.  We predict he'll be 150 pds.
