We are looking at buying a 12 week old puppy that is a Maremma X Rottweiler.
I'm just wanting to know people's opinions as this will be my partner's and my first dog together (I'm also part owner of a pure bred German Shep) and we want to make a decision that would be best for the puppy.
We live in a mid-sized property in the suburbs with 4 chooks and a cat.
I go running 3-4 times a week for 6.5km and would obviously go out to play with and exercise the puppy regularly as well as training.
However, I've read some terrible things about Maremmas with regard to their independent nature, over-protectiveness and potential aggression with other people and other dogs.
I'm unsure if the breeder has bred this cross before as well, but they have described them as a good 'family' dog.
We don't want to get her simply because she's cute and then put her into a position where she is underwhelmed and unhappy.
We're going to view her and the parents tomorrow afternoon but wanting to know if it's worth it?
Advice would be greatly appreciated!!
