Is this breed right for you? Are you SURE?
Rodney - (AKA "Hot Rod") 1yr old male
"Hot Rod" Rodney has recently joined our rescue program and he's all revved up for some fine tuning. He'll soon be ready to go! Rodney's owners dumped him at a boarding kennel claiming they would be back in two weeks to pick him up and never came. Turns out, they moved to the east coast and tried to sell him…right from the boarding facility, to someone who wanted to use him as stud to breed and sell puppies for "a little extra cash". Thankfully, the 'buyer' never showed up and the owners never claimed him. Rodney is a high energy pup that is very toy motivated and just an all around happy dog. He's learning how to down shift and operate in low gears, gets along well with other dogs big and small, and loves people. Although he is getting some basic manners training, he will need a home that will continue formal training sessions with him.
Layla - 2yr old female She's looking for love!
Little Miss Layla is looking for her new family. She's come SOO far since we first rescued her and she's absolutely ready for a family of her own!! Lovely Little Layla - sure has been through a lot for such a young dog. She and her littermate brother are the result of inexperienced puppy sellers who left them in a vacant yard and did nothing more than throw food over the wall to feed them. They spent the first year of their life with no human interaction, no vet visits, not even names. When we brought them into our program they were terrified of EVERYTHING and honestly, we weren't sure they were going to recover. We are happy to say that with a LOT of time and effort by our club members, she has come to realize that people and places aren't so scary after all! She is a small Rottweiler at 55lbs and very sweet but still reserved at first with new things. She will do best in a home with other dogs and humans who will continue to expose her to new things and training using a positive approach. In her foster home, she sleeps in a crate at night and enjoys playing with the two resident male Rottweilers and a 7yr old girl. She's chipped, spayed, vaccinated and ready to bond with humans who will welcome her into their family.
