I would like to know if 2 males rottweleirs are appropriate to have in the same house.  
My parents moved to a big acreage house a while ago they got a  male rottweiler from a shelter he was a that time a 1 year old, 3 months later they bought a 1 month male puppy, everything had been right until the
beginning of this year when the size of the puppy was about the same size of the adult, seems now that they are fighting constantly, they really don't know How to
separates them while they are fighting and is very stressful for my old folks. The problems seems to occur while the oldest try to keep the youngest by pushing him away with his body when somebody is out in
the yard, the last fight got them really injured. I would like to know if we can do something to stop the fights or instead get a female or what to do.

Hold on!  Getting a female will only WORSEN this behavior. Guaranteed! You must alter (neuter) both males right away or one or both will end up severly injured or dead.  If both dogs are already neutered, then you will just have to separate them.  Some rotties just won't tolerate another dog of the same sex.  Neutering (BOTH!) usually alleviates this.  Hope I could help!

Hey they are trying to declare dominace and jelosy. The first is most likely jeolus of the second. And now that the second is older one is going to declare dominace and the other is going to alwayz challenge the other. But when one beats the other really bad hes declared dominace and he will only beat the other up over food. Ive seen it with my German Shepherds. You just have to play this one by ear.
