Layla - 2yr old female ****4/27/2015 ADOPTED!!****
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.
Preserving a working heritage
Zoey - 3yr female
Sweet Zoey is a beautiful 3yr old female who was used to push out puppies for profit by inexperienced puppy sellers (we can't bring ourselves to call them breeders) who knew nothing about breeding or whelping dogs. She was deemed 'not a good mother' so the humans decided to put her on Craigslist (so someone else could make a few bucks). Before she was two years old, she already had two litters - much too young to be bred. Her days of pumping out "Craigslist Puppies" are done and she's quite happy to be someone's loved companion. She's a very sweet and friendly dog, friendly with other dogs but gets really excited when other dogs are playing and she isn't, and she's a beautiful 80lbs. She is getting some basic manners training in her foster home but will need a home that will continue her training.
Ryder - 1yr male
Ryder, the darn cute Rottweiler! He loves to have fun and at 1yr old....life is all about fun. Ryder is about 75lbs and has some basic manners learned in his previous home and needs a home that will continue the work. He's a very social boy and eager to greet his humans when they come home with smiles and happy spins!. He's great with most dogs, large and small, but he's still a young dog and may be too exuberant for toy breeds. He is crate trained (and will go in on his own when he's tired) but still needs help walking on leash. So much excitement to check out new things!
