I'm looking at owning a German Shepard Dog, a Rottweiler, Ragdoll cat and a Maine Coon Cat... could all of these animals live with each other - if started at puppy and kitty age?  And which one of these would be harder to introduce?  Thanks

Puppies take a LOT of time and training and attention.  In my opinion, this is not a good idea.

I have a German Shepard that is about 6 months old and is not able to stay with me any longer because of my living space. He is very sweet and would never bite or hurt anything. His name is TJ. If you would like to have him please email me at jlfalls@coastal.edu Thanks.

I actually have a Maine Coon and Ragdolls cats (both males around 10 years old) and am getting a german shepard puppy in 2 days.  I look forward to this. The Ragdoll and Maine coon are very tolerant but havent' been around dogs at all.  I see a adjustment period needed but I do not anticipate any problems as the gs is a puppy.  My maine coon is around 22 pds and is very loving and is actually more like a dog and both my cats sleep together and sit next to each other all the time even though they are both males.

   I love this bread! I have a German Shepard he is a mutt because, he is also part chow. He is really fun loving dog. His name is Tipper. He is really exited and always entergetic.
   This kind of dog has a little bit ruff around the edges but, would never hurt a fly. (Unless of course you are a fly he may try to eat you.)I LOVE MY COOL MUTT GERMAN SHEPERED!!! (rock on mutts.)

I have 5 cats, 4 are regular old American cats and the other is a Bengal.  When we decided to get a dog, we were nervous but were adamant and determined to make it work.  The fact that we wanted a Rottweiler raised more concern for us.  

"Jimmy", our male Rotti is now 10 months old and best buds with our almost 3 year old male Bengal.  They sleep together and even bathe each other.  Our other cats are not exactly thrilled with the new mammoth sized fur ball, but they all get along just fine, and we couldn't be happier.  Whether or not we were just lucky, I don't know, but I do believe they can all live happily together.

I have a 5 year old German sheppard that is best friends with his old sister, a black cat.  The dog came into the family after the cat, and they get along just fine.  In fact, the cat sleeps next to the dog at night.

Well, i have a cat and dog and they get alonge GREAT! Then i got another cat named Peaches but my first cat hated her but my dog and Peaches fell in love. Then Peaches had kittys and we kept 1. Ofcourse, my first cat hated the kitty as much. But again, my dog and the kittin fell in love. My dog  is small and lazy though, I think it just depends on how old the animals are, how tolerrent they are, how long they know each other, and i think you get  my point. I think that you should introduce them all at a younge age because cats have a hard time adjusting to a large wild puppy! ^^

I have a 3 yr. old male Rotti, a 7 mo. old female Rotti, a 10 yr. old tom cat, and a 6 yr. old Maine Coon.  They all get along and "play" well with each other.  We also have a perch about 2 feet from the ceiling with stairs that lead up to it, that my husband made for the cats to get away from the dogs when they want to be lazy.

My wife and I have 3 cats and one dog. The cat's breeds are 1.Birman 2.Solid black, and 3.Solid white. The dog is a mix of Lab and possably Dingo. The dog gets along well with our birman, respects the white one becauseshe clawed the dog on the nose unexpectantly, and the dog likes to chase the black cat because he runs and doesn't hold his ground. The birmin was 3 when we got the dog, then we got the white one at 4 years old, and the black one as a kitten. all the cats get along and play with each other, but tends to exclude the dog. My best advice for harmony is not to tease the dog using the cat because it will teach the dog that it's ok to be mean to the cats.
The dog just chases though, but she will nip sometimes when the cats start the fight :>) but I think it's more of a hearding instinct and not a hunting instink.

this is crap. what kind of a question is this. it is not very well thought out and i dont think it is a good idea to start off with 4 baby animals all at once. especially since they are all different as far as temperament goes. you are an idiot.
