Preserving a working heritage
Bolt - 3yr male
We can't say enough good things about Bolt. He is...Mr. Wonderful. He passed our initial evaluation and temperament tests with flying colors and is just a very lovable and cool dog. At 3yrs young he is good with kids, (grew up with them from a pup) knows many basic commands, house trained and takes treats gently. He needs some refresher training and good leash walks but he's willing and motivated to learn. He is good with other well mannered dogs and LOVES belly rubs from anyone willing to give them. Bolt was raised in a very loving home and is accustomed to being part of the family.
Chops - 1yr male - why Craigslist is bad for dogs
Chops is a perfect example of why people who post/sell puppies on Craigslist are NOT caring or responsible breeders. Chops was first sold on Craigslist when he was just a few months old and went to a home who didn't understand the breed and new nothing about training and socializing dogs yet they planned to breed him and SELL puppies. When the fluffy little puppy became a 70lb puppy with no boundaries, they realized he was more than they could handle. So...they posted him 'free - 11 mo old non neutered male' on Craigslist. Thank goodness we found him before anyone could breed him, neglect him or 'try' him and dump him again.
When we took him in, he was just under 70lbs and very thin and we soon realized he was FULL of parasitic worms which is easily treated! While in our care, he has been neutered, de-wormed, vaccinated, chipped and had a loose dew claw removed (necessary to prevent it from tearing in the future). He has a very nice temperament and is very willing to learn and is good with children but like ALL dogs and ALL breeds, supervision is a must. He is still very much a puppy and may be quite exuberant when meeting other dogs, but all this boy needs is a home who cares enough to show him how to be a good Rottweiler citizen. He's still a little nervous when seeing new things since he was kept in the backyard and not walked or exposed to the outside world but since he's been with us, he's done very well with praise, affection and treat rewards when experiencing something new.
