Guardian Jazabel Von Gottschalk
Hope all is well nice puppies you have from Europe! Jazabel is doing wonderful, she already knows sit,stay,heel and down commands we are amazed at how smart she is! We even have her trained to ring bells attached to our patio door when she has to relieve herself.
Take care and thanks for parting with our wonderful Jazabel.
Joe and Lydia
Hi Alice hope all is well. You posted some great pictures on your website of you in Europe. .Jaz is doing great, she is 8 months old now and challenges us often not for long though and then goes back to being an angle. Lydia and I were talking the other day how fortunate we were to find you and for getting Jaz as our first Rottweiler. Her intelligence always amazes us. I put her on pawvillage check it out when you get a chance.
As promised her are some pictures of her taken over the weekend.
Hope all is well!
How is the new house going for you? We saw your pics on facebook and it is beautiful. Here are some recent pics of Jaz taken over the past weekend at home and when we were in Michigan. We recently lost our 13 year old Italian greyhound to breast cancer and not to sound cold, but we will be contacting you about purchasing a male puppy so please keep us in mind. Jaz is doing great! She is 70 lbs and smart as a whip. She goes to day camp twice a week at the Petsmart where Lydia is a groomer and gets along great with the other dogs at the day camp.
Hope to talk to you soon and good luck with your new house.
Joe and Lydia
Its 8:30 and look who is still sleeping. Definalty not a working dog 😉
That is great to hear thank you I attached a pic of my mom with her new best friend. My mom is here spending the night and as you can see my mom spoils her I just took this picture 10 minutes ago. Joe
“Knox” Guardian Justice Von Gottschalk
Happy Valentines Day! I know most puppies probably learn this fast but we just wanted to let you know that Knox already knows how to sit on command. We have been working with him and he stays at our side most of the time- I don’t really even have to watch him much. He plays for a while and then he lays at my feet while I wash dishes or cook! We love him!!! (appropriate for valentines day, I guess!) We had him vet checked and things look great. The only thing we are working on right now is when he has something he shouldn’t in his mouth and you try to take it away, he growls sometimes as if he’s playing and won’t let go. Right now we make a loud noise, squeeze his jaws open, replace it with his toy, and praise him…is that right? Anyways, just wanted to give you an update..thanks bunches and hope you are having a restful weekend!

Guardian Joi Von Gottschalk
Joi was and is a very special puppy for us. Born premature and underdeveloped, even the vet told me she would not survive. But she had Diesel’s blood in her and as long as she wanted to live, I would do everything medically possible to ensure that she did. Although she was born not even 1/3 the size of her siblings, she is now a very beautiful, healthy one year old. Many of you know the story of our baby Joi, but you may read about her here. She is now living with a wonderful family and is a beloved member of the family. We are so very proud of our baby bundle of Joi!
“TITAN” Guardian Jax Von Gottschalk
WE JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BREEDING SUCH A WONDERFUL PUPPY. HE IS AN AWESOME ADDITION TO OUR FAMILY.
WE HAVE BEEN VERY DILIGENT IN HIS POTTY TRAINING AND HE IS DOING VERY WELL, ONLY TWO VERY SLIGHT URINE INCIDENTS…OUR MISTAKES OF COURSE, BUT AS SOON AS WE CAUGHT HIM GETTING READY TO GO HE KNEW EXACTLY WHERE TO GO TO FINISH! WE HAVE HIM ON A FEEDING SCHEDULE ALREADY AND HE IS DOING REALLY WELL.
HE IS A JOY TO BE AROUND AND SO MUCH FUN ALREADY.
AGAIN, THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE HAVE BEEN TAKING PICTURES LIKE CRAZY, I WILL UPLOAD SOME FOR YOU.
JILLIAN AND JEFFERY
P.S. WE ENDED UP NAMING HIM TITAN…AND IT WAS ALMOST LIKE HE KNEW HIS NAME WAS WRONG AS “STORM”. WHEN I TAP MY LEG AND SAY “TITAN COME”, HE COMES RUNNING WITH JOY EVERYTIME ALREADY!!!
Just wanted to share some pics of Titan. He is really coming into his own, but is A LOT of work…and A LOT of fun. He meets new people everyday and is really doing well on the potty training end of things…biting is a whole other story, LOL. Thank you so much for such a beautiful dog.
As you can see, he has gone to the vet twice, finds no problem relaxing at home in a very comfortable position let me add, and is the most handsome thing I have ever seen. We truly picked a wonderful puppy and he an amazing expansion to our family.
TITAN IS DOING GREAT!!!! WE LOVE HIM SO MUCH AND HE IS SPOILED ROTTEN TO THE CORE ALREADY AND KNOWS IT. HE MEETS NEW PEOPLE EVERYDAY AND IS FINALLY GOING ON WALKS WITH HIS LEASH WITHOUT FIGHTING US. WHAT A JOY HE IS…I FIND MYSELF WALKING IN AN OUT OF THE HOUSE ALL DAY JUST TO GET THE GREETING HE GIVES.
Talk with you soon,
Hi Alice, just touching bases to reinterate how much we love our boy. From the cute looks he gives us, to the 6am wake up calls…he is everything we have ever wanted in a Rottweiler. Every where we go, we get complements about what a great dog he is. While a lot of that has to do with the fact that he’s been in puppy classes since he was 10wks and how we are raising him, much of it is a direct reflection on the breeder and we would recommend you to anyone!!! Infact, Jeff has already named the next rotte we hope to get from you in the future, LOL. Titan has a few things to say……..
Hi, this is Titan and I just wanted to say I LOVE my new family. They give me belly rubs, legs rubs, special treats, fun toys, LOTS of loving and wonderful baths. I get to go to doggie day camp once a week and I meet new people everyday. Im not sure how I feel about Mr. Vacuum Cleaner yet, I just let him to his work and watch him go back to where he came from! I look foward to my two walks everyday. My mom & I meet so many dogs and people and its a good opportunity for me to practice all those excersizes I learn in puppy class. I still get really excited when I meet people, which is my absolute favorite thing to do, but I calm down as soon as mom reminds me about those tasty treats she has stashed. Im getting so big too. At my last doctor appt, I weighed 78lbs and my doctor said my weight was perfect! My mom and dad bought me a new collar and leash, they say “Bad to the Bone” although everyone keeps saying I dont live up to the slogan??? They say Im a big baby and a big old fraidy cat…bet they werent saying that when grandma tried to come in the house through the sliding glass door. I jumped over my mom and dad and stood between them and the door barking as strongly as I could until I recognized my grandma’s voice! Boy were they proud of me that day. I still have a lot of growing up to do, but Im well on my way. Thanks for fitting me with such a great family 🙂
We enclosed some new pics to exchange with the old ones. These have our daughters in them (who live in different cities) they are on the internet more in school and wanted to be able to show people Titan’s parents (both human & biological LOL). The crazy picture is one we took of him the first time we practiced leaving him home alone…when we got back home he was on the couch, knocked out sleeping, up-side-down!!!
One more REALLY cool tidbit. We went to pick up Titan from doggie day camp the other day and someone asked us where we got him. What a small world it is!!! The groomer who had taken care of him has “Jazabel” from the same “J” litter Titan/Jax was from. She lives in the same city we do and left the message for me to call ahead of time so she can bring her in and they can have a play date. I thought that was pretty cool. You definitely have referrals out this way, we have nothing but good things to say about Guardian.
Jillian, Jeff, and Titan
Guardian Jacub Von Gottschalk
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how I’m doing in my new home. I spent all day Sunday following Dot around the house (she thinks she has me trained to follow her. HA!). I took a nap in the afternoon while they went buy me some more toys, Hills Large Breed Puppy food, and some other goodies. (They’re going to mix it with my other food so my stomach adjust easily). Monday, I went with Mark and rode in a semi truck with a load of corn he was taking to the elevator terminal. The way this truck is made that when I stood up in my box, I could see out all the windows and I though this is COOL! I got tired though and slept the whole time I was at the elevator so I missed the tour! I am eating vigorously and feeling good…I like my new home and Owners. I do miss you guys…here’s a couple of pictures of me. I’m so cute.
Keep in touch!
I went to the Vet and all is Ok. He tricked me with a treat and then gave me a shot! I am so smart. Dot and Mark think they got me trained but I outsmarted them and got out of my ‘playpen’ (I figured if I thrust my weight it tips over – FREEDOM!) I have grown so much in just a week and I am almost potty trained. I get treats if I sit down and stay–that’s easy and I love the treats I get. Susie and Mike next door come over all the time and want to be best buddies with me too. Well, here’s a picture for you of me with my favorite toy. I’m doing fine, I’m spoiled rotten. 🙂 As always, miss y’all. Tell the girls and boys I think of them often.
My Vet was afraid I had a cartilage problem so Mark too me to a specialist in Anderson, he said the only thing wrong was I was growing too fast and one muscle was growing faster than the other, thus pulling my front feet inward (bow-legged) so I had to wear these for 5 days (see pics) and I’ve been fine ever since.
Life is great. I walked around the pond, drank from the pond. I now weight over 18 lbs—can you believe it. I have grown so much you probably would not recognize me. When Mark whistles I go to him. He takes me for lots of rides everyday and I’ve met so many new people who just love all over me! I have a new bed as I outgrew my other one, lots of toys, but of course, my favorite is Dot’s pajamas (I don’t think she like this as I chase her around the house grabbing at the legs, I thought this was a game we’re supposed to play until Mark comes around then I have to quit). I have to train Dot as when it’s time to play, she squeals—Mark told her if she just would walk slower I wouldn’t go after moving targets (grin).
My Nanny (neighbor, Susie) and her husband come see all the time as they want me to know them well. Mike plays with me a lot–he gets on the carpet and pretends to hide and I jump all over him . It is such fun.
Life is great. I now weight over 25 lbs. I am so tall, you wouldn’t recognize me…I’m so CUTE. Mark and I go fishing everyday now that is it getting warmer. I fell in the pond last week and Dot had to give me another bath, was I dirty. We walk around the yard every day and there are flags and I know I cannot go any farther.
Hi Mom & Dad,
Sorry I haven’t written in awhile but I wanted to give you an update of how I’m doing. I’ve grown into quite a large ‘fellow’; don’t think you would recognize me any more since I’ve been with this family that you have entrusted my care to. I’ ve learned so many things this past year. And, snow, how I love snow—i can play in it for hours.
Guardian Jeriko Von Gottschalk
I thought I would send you a few pictures of the growing baby. After our trip downtown Bloomington last weekend we weighed him at the pet store and he’s up to 63 pounds already. He is turning into a great dog. I don’t have him as trained as I like, but that is my fault not his. He is very confident in his actions & the surroundings.
Hope all is going well with you and your house full.
Guardian Jewel Von Gottschalk
Also, Jewel is doing WONDERFUL! She’s at a 2 week in-kennel training right now and they said she is doing great and they love training her. She’s so precious.
Anyway, if you could let me know about puppies from Diesel’s litter that’d be great.
Tell Tahlia she’s a wonderful dog! She’s so dag on sweet & loveable and they are just eating her up at the training facility. Each time I call, it doesn’t matter who answers the phone, they know who Jewel is and know exactly how she’s doing. We did have to have her head operated on. She had tissue that had built up so thick it formed an actual core that was resting near her brain. They went in and removed it, her fur grew back and you can barely see her scar. They believe it happened when she banged her head under our coffee table (prior to learning she’s not our Yorkie’s size and she can’t run under the coffee table) and it actually formed a scar beneath the surface that continued to grow. It was scary but she was totally fine with everything and is great. I will give her tons of kisses. I miss her terribly. She doesn’t come home from training until Tuesday and I’m dying. 🙂
Oh wow! So when would those puppies be born and when will you begin taking deposits for the next litter? The deposit is $500 correct? Then after the puppies are born you state the price of each one? When would these little ones be born? We love Jewel so much I want another one but a male this time! I’ve attached a picture of Jewel riding to the training facility. It’s not the greatest but it’s so funny that she thinks she’s a person.
