BIO: Izzy is a very beautiful 3 year old rottie girl! Initially, she is a little shy with strangers, but seems to be quite happy and once people are around for a bit. She is also friendly in a quiet sort of way. We had a full house over Thanksgiving and she didn't seem to have any trouble with my kids or my son's girlfriend. She is also warming up to my husband and doesn't seem particularly afraid of men. I've found her to be very sweet and affectionate.
She gets along very well with the other two dogs, one male and one female, although we do have to keep an eye on her as she has a tendency to steal their food. We had her weighed at our vet and she is a nice healthy 106 lbs.
She really seems to have bonded with Bruce, our male, and she gets along Ok with Anya, our female, although they don't seem to interact that much. I'm thinking you may want to place her in a home with another dog. I kind of get the impression she treats Bruce as the alpha dog and she hangs out with him to feel safe. No trouble or conflict at with Anya.
I've walked her several times on a coupler with Bruce and I'm not seeing any type of aggression at all. A couple times some of the little kids in our neighborhood have wanted to pet her and she has been just fine with them. In the past, she displayed fear with children, but I have not noticed that while she is here. It may be that she is modelling her behavior on Bruce and Anya who are both quite kid friendly.
I haven't put her in the kennel very often because I'd like her to sort of play/learn house manners. On the whole this is going very well. She sleeps upstairs with me and Bruce and I do close the door at night so she doesn't wander around the house. No excessive barking or inappropriate behavior.
Izzy does have the occasional accident in the house (pee, we aren't sure why, whether she is just a little nervous (separation anxiety) when we are both gone or if its due to just not being able to read her very well. This is improving so I think it will resolve itself.
