Dog: Kratos (German Shepherd / Rottweiler Mix) – Indianapolis, IN (Dec 17, 2012 – Feb 22, 2013)

My partner & I decided to get a dog. The problem was agreeing on what to get. I wanted a German Shepherd, he wanted a Rottweiler. Enter Kratos!

We found him from a rescue shelter that had saved him from abandonment at just 7 weeks old. When we brought him home, he was the sweetest, most loving puppy we had ever had. (He & I both grew up with dogs).

We brought Kratos home on a cold Saturday, and set to work on training him. By Wednesday, he was almost potty trained! He was happiest being held & if we couldn’t hold him he’d just follow us quietly.

His favorite place was my BF’s lap. His favorite toy, a mini tennis ball. But by that following Wednesday, he had stopped eating.

Thursday we took him to the vet who diagnosed him with Parvo. By that Saturday (even with intense treatment) he fell to the disease. My partner & I were devastated.

We already had so many plans! And Kratos was already wormed into our hearts.

I miss him soooo much!! I love you baby, rest in peace in doggy heaven.



  1. OMG. I know this is old but I have a German shepherd Rottie mix named Allie. Kratos is so dang cute. He is with my Border collie Sam and my beloved lab Sadie. My heart still goes out to you.

  2. Im sooo sorry for your loss. He is a beautiful puppy! I rescued a young female pitbull that ended up surviving Parvo! I became so bonded with her during her illness that I had to keep her, even though I already had 2 dogs. She is very special to me!!! Parvo is a horrible disease! I wish that no dog would ever suffer from that virus!!!
