Eight years ago my husband had to leave for a three month deployment. While he was gone I decided it was time for us to get a dog. I wasn't looking for any breed in particular but I wanted one from a rescue shelter. Toward the last cage at the shelter I felt this lick on my hand and saw an adorable rottweiler named Lucy. She is the sweetest dog I have ever known and has changed my thinking that rottweilers are mean dogs!
