Q. I have a very nice male Rott, but he doesn't have papers. I would like to breed him. What do you think? I am sure he will produce nice temperaments in his puppies.
I have a three year old male Rottweiler, we don't have papers on him but he is purebred. He has a stable temperament, loyal to me ,friendly to my friends and family, but protective when the need arises. He is easily handled, controlled and trained by me and I'm a very small female. He is a gorgeous dog, nice brick head, fairly short back and powerful legs, but not stumpy or leggy.

I'd like to breed him, I am confident he can produce both great trustworthy family companions or a SchH or protection dog. I wanted to know if his not having papers is going to be a problem in breeding him and for a male Rottweiler in excellent health what stud fee should we charge?

A. You will only be able to offer dogs as pets nothing more. No serious working person would ever consider it. My advice is to not do this. There are enough dogs in this world and this is not the way to become a breeder or to produce dogs.

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
