Hi guys firstly i am new . i firstly want to say thanks for letting me join. I hope to learn lots and lots from you guys.
Ok so i have an issue. (i have never bred pups nor have the intention to) i have two Rottweilers my self. One male 12 months old and one female 5 months old. Both will be fixed up. My male is a registered dog with the AKC. I was approached by a lady last week letting me know her bitch was in season and if she could use my male to breed. I told her she can but i don’t guarantee he will “do the job” as his just a baby. Now she’s in her 14 day of her heat and his not showing a great deal of interest. She’s backing up to him and his sniffing and licking her but he wont do anything else.
My first question is. Is he not ready yet? (too young) as he only turned 1 year last Friday.
Secondly, his had a hard life before we got him, he was beaten and his timid, would that have any impact on him?
Thirdly this woman is crazy about her dog , so tries to force him to sniff her even tries to force him to jump her.. that was my final straw. I said bring her back tomorrow if his not interested his not going to do the job. But i wanted to seek some advice from some people who do breed. My males been vet checked hip scored , you name it his had it. Cost me $1500 just for my own peace of mind that he was sound enough to even breed. I should of asked my vet but silly me didn’t think as i have never had any interest in breeding as my little puppy is not papered .
Now this female is nearly three. They tried to breed her in her last heat with an 11 year old dog who was gone in the hips so he couldn’t stay on her. She was then AI’ed and when scanned there was no puppies. She wasn’t pregnant. Shes a very dominant female, she cocks her leg to pee and is really strange. So i winder with the information i have given u guys if you could give me any ideas or is my male just too young...
