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.
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.
Zeus - 8yr old ***Adopted 2/20/2015***
The unbreakable spirit of a Rottweiler -
Boy oh boy - we hope someone out there can find room in their heart and home for this super sweet dog. Zeus is a perfect example of how resilient and forgiving Rottweilers are. He was nearly unrecognizable a few months ago through no fault of his own but he has all the love and affection of any Rottweiler we've had in our rescue (he likes to give gentle kisses). Zeus has made a fantastic recovery and his personality and playfulness have emerged now that he feels (and looks) better. His skin is healed, his fur has almost completely returned and his tummy is full and best of all, his Rottweiler-ness is in full swing. Affectionate, playful and loving, this guy will make a WONDERFUL companion and friend. Sadly - too many people pass on adult dogs and don't realize how incredibly appreciative and loyal they are. We had a foster lined up for him who had to back out to take in a few emergency dogs and now we are in dire need of a foster or permanent home for this boy. He gets along with other dogs, large and small, but does find cats to be a little....too much fun. He's neutered, chipped and healthy and LOVES to go for walks or just lay near a human on a comfy bed.
Zeus - After lots of TLC!
Maya - 1 yr old female - ***Adopted 2/10/2015***
Marvelous Maya, is a beautiful one year old pretty female who is extremely friendly, great wtih with other dogs and children and is housebroken (woo hoo!). In her previous home, she was an indoor dog and lived with two small dogs and slept in the room of her 'little humans'. She has a soft, yet very 'willing' temperament and can be shy at first but warms up after a few minutes. She didn't get out much in her prior home but we are working on that by exposing her to as many new things as possible and making it a fun game! She loves to run around the yard, but doesn’t seem to know how play with balls or toys!! We don't think she had dog toys in her previous homes (yes, homes…she was passed around a few times before coming to us). She is just now getting familiar with walking on a leash and needs a home that will commit to take time and continuing her training and constructive exposure/socialization (no, dog parks don't count.....ask us why). She's about 75lbs and enormously sweet.
