Rottweiler's Mysterious Death We gave our Rottie away to a loving home due to us moving to Germany soon. In the 10 days she was there, she was consistently vomiting, didn't eat much, would drink a lot and then she started drinking nothing at all and she would just lay on her bed and urinate on herself. We picked her up from the people as we did not want her to be a burden. We thought that maybe it was just depression and stress. She was walking like she was drunk, bumping into things, failing to really stand on her own.
