Catch up with Falkirk’s furry four-legged friends

WHERE ARE YOU FROM? Stenhousemuir

WHO IS YOUR PET? We have three Rottweilers: Sox (8), Max (5) and Molly (2).

HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD THEM? We bought each of them when they were eight-week-old puppies.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THEM? Graham was involved in a serious mortorbike accident eight years and we decided a dog would help his rehabilitation. He wanted a pedigree dog but was not in favour of a Rottweiler. He was overruled by his family and now he is the biggest fan of the breed. He bought Max to show and has had great success.

WHAT ARE THEY LIKE TO LIVE WITH? The three pets are loyal and loving and all have different personalities. Sox is strong-headed; Molly is laid back and loves a kiss and a cuddle; and Max is more hyperactive.

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THEM AS A PET? They make wonderful pets as long as they are trained properly. You have got to be firm but fair and they have to know who is boss. All three are loyal, obedient and aim to please. They look for approval.

DO THEY HAVE ANY SPECIAL TALENTS? All three are obedient and loving which surprises people who do not know about Rottweilers. Max is a show dog and is the top Rottweiler dog in the country
