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
Hercules - 4yr old male
If you are looking for a lovable, affectionate, and well mannered Rottweiler, HERE HE IS! Hercules is a VERY nice dog who wants to hang out with humans and be loved. He's about 80lbs, crate trained and good with children and small dogs. His owners love him to pieces but due to unexpected military orders to Japan (and the military housing ban on Rottweilers) they have no choice but to re home him. He's a soft temperament dog and needs a firm but soft approach. He has some basic obedience and house manners training, takes treats gently and is an expert "leaner". He's a real gem of a Rottweiler with an wonderful temperament.
Bella - 2yr old female
Bella is a two year old smaller female that is ready for a real Rottie life. Her previous home was 'moving' and didn't want her anymore. Of course, they didn't want her after she had puppies and they were all sold. She had a recent litter and she needs some time to recover and get her Rottie body back but while in foster, she's getting the necessary nutrition and attention she needs. She's an absolute sweetheart and loves affection. She could use some training but really just needs a loving home that will include her as part of the family.
