You know, my dog Kryesor is an alaskan husky of about thirteen to fourteen years old. He is the oldest dog I've ever owned growing up. He has very similar rottie markings yet, I know he has no rottie in him. (Because around the time he was born, the only rotties I saw were a pair of two guard dogs and both were fixed.) My best guess as to his breed is probably alaskan husky, mixed with a germanshepherd mutt, who just happened to come out with rottie like markings. (And small ears as someone pointed out here on the forum.)

If people say he's a german shepherd mix I tell them yes, if they say he's an alaskan husky I say yes. If they say Rottie mix I would respond with you think so? So, do what the others have been saying. Don't let your neighbor(Whom sounds like she is trying ot be helpful.) get your sister down. Have your sister talk to your neighbor and let them know how she feels with the constant I half salesman joke. If she is a good neighbor, she will understand and hopefully stop. If she doesn't....

If I had a dollar for how many times one of my scotties was called a schnauzer or a toto dog...

Doesn't bother me...I know what I have and it doesn't matter what they think.

Thanks so much for your responses! It could be a dobie mix- we just Rottie because of what the woman at the shelter said and the markings, but who really knows. I don't think it really matters too much, but it seems to be a point of pride between us. Especially since the humiliating scene at the dog park. I'm just glad everyone didn't just say ridiculous to the possibility and write me off!
our dog is currently 4 months old(and growing leggier everyday), and he is as tall as our neighbors full grown miniature already. His paws are bigger than hers too. As for the transportation issue we live on a sailboat. Since the stay in Texas is only temporary we decided not to buy a car, so our neighbor (also a boat owner) helped us out. We're sailing back to our home in Hawaii, and we wanted a dog to come along to make things more interesting- and man are they interesting! This puppy (his name is Hazuzu) has made this boat his home and he has the run of it. He also runs the cat around too, lol.
We had a chat with our neighbor about the puppy breed issue, but she still stands firm on her ground that a possible rottie/schnauzer mix is impossible. Oh well. We'll see what he looks like when he's full grown, but the important thing is that he is an awesome dog.

I was about to ask the same question as Marbear. Also, even if she stands firm, she is at least aware of your sister's feelings right? And yeah, we are so evil that way. We write off anyone who crosses our path. MUAAHA HA HA HA HA..... just kidding.

I hope everything works out and have a safe trip back home to Hawaii. Oh, when you get there, don't be a stranger, hang around and have fun with us. We are all good dog lovers around here. (Some can be a little hotheaded at times, but they all mean good. ^_^) Right Guys?!

I think your neighbor fails to remember that the shelter said the father is a rottie mix, not a full blooded rottie. He could be a good bit smaller then a full blooded rottie.

I've learned when people are that close minded, and determined to stick to their guns no matter what evidence is presented, it's not worth arguing with them over it.

I really like this forum- I plan on sticking around. I've got questions about my dog, this is the first place I go to look up the answers.
And for the potty training in the boat- its pretty straight forward. We train him on a puppy pad indoors, and then we slowly moved the pad outside- you know, have him use it in the cockpit, and then onto the deck. Then we get an outdoor mat(astroturf), and put a used training pad on or under it so he'll smell it, and then he starts going on the mat Pretty simple. We just make sure that when we go to a friends house they don't have the same kind of mat- we don't want the poor puppy getting confused! We've punched a hole in the mat and tied a rope on so we can drag it in the water to clean it while we're under way.
Another cruiser's dog learned how to perch over the rails to poop in the water! A smart dog, but kinda risky.

Bear's mother was a small terrier mix (less than 20lbs) and his father was a purebred German Shepherd Dog, so strange things certainly are possible. Everyone always gives me pained looks when I tell them that, though - I'm sure they're trying not to imagine what that experience must have been like!

just to point out though, they said standard schnauzer. those are smaller than giant schnauzers. schnauzers come in 3 sizes, mini, standard and giant.

My cousins have a dachshund bitch and she has on more than one occasion had pups by their Ridgeback male. So even if the father was a full grown Rottie I wouldn't be overly surprised.
