Give a dog a bad name

PUBLISHED: 11:50 28 January 2008 | UPDATED: 19:33 05 July 2010

I AM furious with Rachel Moore's opinion that the sort of person who favours rottweilers is often the sort of parent who can't even control their children or their own temper (Journal, January 4).

Well I am an excellent parent who can control her children and her temper, and yes, I own a rottie who is a fantastic dog.

I did much research on rotties before buying her.

Putting a small child with a dog who is not used to children (any dog) puts the child at risk, even the best trusted dog.

I have many friends who have rotties time and time again.

Ms Moore needs to think what she is writing as it's comments like hers that give these dogs a bad name. She needs to research the breed before making those sorts of comments.

In America rotties are more popular than any other dog to have as a pet.
