The Renter Neglected To Mention Their 100 Pound Rottweiler.....(Heart Pumping)

     rottweiler, showing property,mooers realtySet up a showing of a your basic regulation mobile home in the country. 

Show up to the unlocked property and gave the renter the standard day's warning.  Had showed the place previously but today discovered as I went down the narrow dark hall a large, just woke up from a nap rottweiler.  Wandering out of the end bedroom, he seemed droggy. He surprised the heck out of me as never saw Rover before and found myself with three, dad and junior behind me in the three foot hall and this K-9 coming out of the bedroom ready to play as he woke up.  Started back peddling and my new found frisky playmate starting bumping and weaving into me as I herded the trio of buyers back to the living room. 

Glad to finally be out of the box canyon and into the living room edging to the door to freedom away from "Jaws". 

As the father and I made the escape to sunshine of outdoors, suddenly Rover charged the door which I shut quickly realizing...I contained him inside but still had two of the buyers in there. "Oh oh" ... now Mr Whipped To Hysteria became upset he was not getting to come outside with us to play..and I ran to the living room window, tapped on it so he would stop throwing his  whole weight against the door. He quickly sprung to the window...hitting it hard enough to make the exterior wall vibrate.  I thought he was coming thru but had to get mom and junior out before he turned on them. Told the Dad to open the door quickly, hurry mom and child out while  Rover was thinking of me for an afternoon lunch. 

It worked but the whole affair could have left a few of us with thirty five or more stitches.  These folks bought the place, seller had the renter and his four legged room mate evicted and there was a happy ending.  Any other folks in the audience meet some unexpected animals they did not know about while showing property? Or something more snakes, birds left free to roam from room to room that the owner or renter forgot to mention ?

Andrew, I have a rott. If he wanted to harm you, there wouldn't have been anything you could have done. He just wanted to play. Rottweilers are very playful dogs. But, if you are teasing him at the window, that's another story. Even I would have been startled and headed for the door, you never know their temperament.

not personally, but I do know a Realtor that was showing a home and SPOT became vicious and attacked her, scarring her face....

I have had this happen to me before.  I was alone and it was on acreage in Fort Myers. I spent some time on top of my car until they bored of waiting and left.

Life is never dull, huh? I like dogs but an unknown dog and you  on their territory can be dicey. Glad you all survived to tell about it.

     Grateful not one got hurt.  The "he just wanted to play" part is something I did not sense as he fully woke up and realized, hey...what the heck are you guys doing here and where is the guy who usually feeds me anyway?  I could sense the situation escalating and biggest concern was get these three customers out of here...fearful of the 10 year old suddenly being mauled.  Had a golden retriever that was sleeping on an open porch that I did not see as I did a door to door campaign a few years back.  And he suddenly woke up, was startled and thankfully on a lease.  I back peddled quickly when his head came up and teeth were showing...and the chain fetched up just as he was ready to sample my leg. Just like in the cartoons.   I love animals, was raised on a farm with a slew of them...but my experience is the little yappy dogs are the most fiesty.  Their owner always says.."Oh Precious would not bite you...come in...well now, come in..don't be hanging around in the dooryard...(CHOMP). And then surprise from owner "Ohhh did Precious bite must have done something to cause it...or she did not really bite you did she?" as I show her the bleeding arm of a buyer that suddenly I know is never going to buy this home.  I have a whole new respect for mail carriers and ups delivery guys and gals!
