Rottweiler Purrs Like A Kitten When His Mom Cuddles Him

Sometimes, dogs and cats get confused as to their different roles. My cat thinks she’s a dog. She likes to play fetch, as well as growl any time the doorbell rings. She even occasionally comes with you call her by name. Likewise, my dog, who spent her life around cats, used to have some feline traits of her own, mostly climbing up on the back of sofas to sleep just like the cats.

And my pets aren’t the only ones that are sometimes get their wires crossed.

One adorable little Rottweiler actually ended up purring every time he got a hug. While it sounds like a very scary cat-like sound, it’s actually a noise that is quite common amongst the breed. They’re actually affectionately called “Rottie rumbles.”

And it’s not a negative growl at all, instead, the purr-like rumble is a way for the dog to express contentment. Almost like how cats purr when they’re happy.

So you should definitely know that there is a distinct difference between a Rottie rumble and a genuinely upset dog. So it’s a good idea to make sure you’re aware of the differences.

In the meantime, check out the video of the happy, rumbling Rottweiler below:

There is no way that you can’t smile when you watch it, am I right?
