Gabbie, the Rottweiler, was very sweet, she was a therapy dog but also moderately dominate towards female dogs. She viewed Tasha and Angel(no photos posted), both Shih Tzus, as her puppies. She could be very protective of them. I had to put Gabbie down in 2004, she was 14. Angle was put down last fall, she was 18. I still have Tasha, a Pug named Doug and a black and white cat who has many names. And four aquariums.
