    Now if I met you out, I'd avoid you :(

    Not because of Tyson but because mine doesn't like big black dogs :(

    Me personally, I'd give him a big cuddle :D

    Awww he's lovely, I'd be straight over for a cuddle and to let Tummel have a play. Tummels never been called a devil dog but people have said he looks aggressive/dangerous which he might but anyone whos met him can tell you he's a complete wimp who just loves to say hello :)

    I really don't like people who judge dogs based on how they look or what the breed is, every dog is different and should be treated as such :p

    This bloke obviously knows sod all about dogs so why show him in the first place? I would not insult my doggies by showing their picture to someone so ignorant.

    What's that old saying "you can lead a horse to water...." Same applies here, you could spend hours talking to the idiot, he won't believe you because he doesn't want to believe you. Save your breath and accept the fact that some people will never fully appreciate a loyal, gentle and friendly friend, Rottweiler or a Cross - their problem, not ours, we know what we've got! ;)

    What a plank he was. :skep:

    He is big, black and got a staffie type of face and is in a harness. So of course he is a devil dog in a photo that a non dog person is looking at. Doesnt mean he meant it or would say it if he was meeting him.

    Again I cannot understand how sensitive some people are to innocent remarks.

    I don't think he looks like a devil dog in the slightest. Although if I did meet you in the street I would ask if he was ok to cuddle...... something which I have instilled in my small man as you just never know. I was bitten as a child by a JRT that I approached without asking permission (albeit it was off lead at the time). I also think its good manners to speak with the owner first before fussing their dog.

    He's the sort of dog that would draw my eye because of how he looks but not because I was scared of him. I think he's lovely.
