My boyfriend's brother-in-law has a small (about 50 pounds) Rottweiler that I've fallen in love with. He's got the most wonderful temperament and is beautiful. When I was younger, I knew a family that raised rottweilers and I remember than being friendly. The only problem with the breed for me is that I know they can get really big which is not something I can deal with. How old are they usually when their size hits its max?
In the past, I've has labs, schnauzers and german shepards. I tend to prefer big dogs to small, but I'm looking for whatever I get to top out at about 50 pounds. They also need to be good with cats, other dogs and people.
