ROTTWEILERS FOR ADOPTION

Occasionally, we take in Rottweilers who, through no fault of their own, have been relinquished or have been rescued from unfortunate circumstances. It's never the dogs fault - they wholly depend on their humans for everything including basic manners, regular vet care and the full commitment to understanding the true characteristics of the breed and housing restrictions in most areas BEFORE acquiring them as puppies. We have a small, all volunteer run rescue where dogs receive behavior assessment, vet care, spay/neuter, microchips, basic manners and of course, love and affection. Our goal is to match the right home with the right dog to ensure the new home is a forever home. Dogs in our rescue have endured enough just by losing their first home so we owe it to them to make sure their next home is their last home.

Rottweilers are highly trainable at ANY age and even an adult or senior dog will bond with their new owner if given the chance. The most common age for Rottweilers to end up in rescue is 1.5 - 3yrs and primarily relinquished due to improper training when they were puppies. Before purchasing your Rottweiler puppy, please consider adoption. We may not have a suitable dog in our rescue but work with several other rescues who may have your perfect match!

Sensi - 3y female **Adopted**

 

What a name right? Well her previous owners called her Sensi because it was short for SENSATIONAL and she's indeed, a sensational little dog and is waiting for a new family who can keep up with her! She came to us because, well....she grew into a dog and was no longer a little puppy and the owners were not prepared for a big dog. She has a lovely natural tail and a little white spot which is due to a recessive gene that pops up sometimes in Rottweilers. She's very people friendly and kid friendly but as usual, she needs a good amount of training. She's an excellent student in her foster home and learning some basic manners but recess is her favorite subject. She's definitely a people dog and will do best in a home that is active where she can be part of the social fun!
