Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    If you need an official 'greeter' Ricardo would like to apply: He's fun, social, loves to run and play with the other dogs at the shelter where he was brought in as a stray. Ricky is so good-natured and friendly and is a true 'people dog' -- anyone who might be willing to say Hello or give him a pat is worth his smile and tail wag!! But the really nice thing about Ricardo is how he balances his love of life and his good manners -- he's never rowdy or unruly. A true Gentleman. We think Ricardo is about 1 1/2 - 2 years old -- nicely past the puppy stage and ready to listen. We are not sure of his true mix, but he's just about 60 pounds and a ... (Read More)healthy boy. If you've always fallen for the charismatic type (who is also a gentleman!!), please visit www.pinkshelter.com for more information about the adoption process or click here for our online application. Full vetting AND neuter included in his $300 adoption fee. Ricardo is in Arkansas and transport fee is additional $140. IF YOU HAVE AOL or YAHOO PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FILE FOR OUR RESPONSE. About Little Pink Shelter - CT Chapter About Our Rescue Group... Little Pink Shelter is a registered 501(c)3 charity. Based in Westport, CT, The Little Pink Shelter was started by one dog loving woman who, after having won her battle against breast cancer, decided to help shelter dogs win their fight for a second chance at life. Today, The Little Pink Shelter is directed solely by Holly who works closely with select shelters and rescues in Arkansas, where too many wonderful dogs are put down because of lack of space. Since founding The Little Pink Shelter, Holly has placed over 2.000+ dogs and puppies into loving homes. Come Meet Our Pets... We do not have a facility in Connecticut, so you can only visit The Little Pink Shelter on the internet. Our dogs and puppies are usually fostered in the south and the overwhelming majority of them are adopted out before they arrive so they can go right home after transport and begin bonding with their new forever families! Check out the 'Love Fests' Albums on our Facebook Fan Page! We are always in search of short term foster homes up here in Connecticut and the surrounding states!!! If you're not ready for a full 15+ year commitment, or if you have always wanted to help in some way, please consider short-term fostering a dog or puppy for us! Write us for more info! Our Adoption Process... The first step in the process is submitting an online application located through a link in each pet's description, or from our website at www.pinkshelter.com under the 'How to Adopt' tab. Whenever possible we like to begin review with a vet reference. After that, we will be in touch to set up a lengthy phone interview where each of us has the opportunity to ask all our questions of the other. Home visits are at our discretion. Once approved, there is a contract and transport is arranged if necessary. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-15-00454Rory (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Some lucky family is going to have the time of lives with our adorable puppy, Rory. He recently came to us from an overcrowded, chaotic animal control facility, where his owners had dumped him, just a five month old pup. Apparently the idea of having a puppy was more glamourous than the notion of raising one. Indeed, the 'we thought we wanted a puppy, but now that he's here, he's alot of work' vibe seems to account for the vast majority of young adult dog in our nation's Shelter system. It is outrageous that a splendid boy, like Rory, could wind up at risk in a high kill shelter, facing euthanasia. He is just one of a multitude who fall ... (Read More)through the cracks in our society of dog lovers. Rory has that dopey puppy personality that will tickle the fancy of an active family, who are all on the same page about raising an older puppy. Rory is now about six months old, and has that gangly, rangey look of young dog not yet in full command of his feet. Weighing 57 pounds, Rory still has some growing to do, and it would not surprise us, if he reached the 70 pound range when full grown. Our Shelter contacts describe Rory as a Rottie / German Shepherd mix, but we think his black and tan markings, narrow forehead and muzzle reflect a more of a Doberman influence. Even though Rory is a mix of two powerful breeds, his nature is sweet and loving, making him the perfect family dog. Rory is very kid friendly and touchable. He craves human attention and would enjoy interacting with young children and being part of a large family. The greatest challenge with Rory is shepherding him through his adolescent stage, and continuing him on a solid regimen of exercise and obedience. He is past the teething stage, and has not proven himself to be destructive, but folks who take on a young dog must be prepared to puppy proof the premises and have realistic expectations of his limitations in the realm of house training and unsupervised time at home alone. Rory is extremely smart, and has begun to grasp the concepts of basic obedience training. He is a dog who could go the full route to Canine Good Citizenship certification, and become a well trained family member who is welcomed everywhere. His temperament is outstanding and he is extremely friendly to everyone he meets. He has demonstrated no issues with other dogs. We think he would even fit into a feline home, although a young pup would likely chase cats in play. Rory has good house manners for a youngster, and is mostly house trained and nicely crate trained. Adopters must expect to fine tune his potty routine, as he transitions to his new home. Rory is in excellent health, and has been neutered. He had one of the best Vet reactions of any dog we've had recently, as he cajoled his way through the poke and prod routine. He has been vaccinated for rabies and DA2PP (distemper, adrenovirus, parvo and parainfluenza). He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed and microchipped. If you are interested in Rory, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 720-903-0636 for more info. Eskies Online is a 501(c)(3) Multibreed rescue group that serves unwanted American Eskimos and other dogs in need. Our group of volunteer foster homes spans the North East, and our adoption territory extends from Maine to eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and parts of northern Maryland. Once an adopter is approved, we arrange transportation. We do not adopt dogs beyond our territory.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-21-00216Sasha (female)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sasha LOVES being outside and especially loves playing catch She's totally recovered from her surgery to remove the tumor on her leg - which thankfully was benign! - and also from her spay surgery. So now Sasha is ready and waiting to find a wonderful forever home! She is a gorgeous rottweiler / pitbull mix with a beautiful brown brindle coat. Just about 4 years old, she's a friendly, affectionate girl who loves people and does well with children of all ages. Sasha gets along with some dogs - a meet and greet would tell us if the dogs agree to agree - or is perfectly happy as an only dog. She will do best in a home without cats or other ... (Read More)small, furry creatures. Sasha came to us out of an empty apartment in Waterbury. She has put her past behind her and now lacks just one thing - a forever family! Could that family be yours? For more information please private message our Facebook page or email: furryfriendsct@yahoo.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-30-00373Maggie (female)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This sweet girl has been in our rescue for over a year ... and although her foster family loves her dearly - and we all do too! - Maggie deserves an AWESOME forever home! Part of the reason she's been here so long is that she needed surgery to correct tears in two ACLs. But that's been done, she's all healed up, and she's ready and waiting to go home with her forever family. Maggie is a little over two years old. She is drop dead GORGEOUS - a rottie / boxer mix. She's a big girl at about 85 lbs, but she's not high energy at all - in fact two of her favorite things to do are cuddling and sleeping! :) Because of her size, she needs ... (Read More)children in the family to be 13 years or older - she could bowl over little ones without meaning to. Dogs? Maggie likes other dogs! She'd love to have a canine brother or sister! Cats? Maggie likes cats! She does want to play with them, so dog-savvy cats are preferable. Training? Maggie is professionally trained. She knows all of her basic commands. Her advanced commands, too! Maggie is spayed, up to date with all her shots, has tested negative for heartworm, Lyme Disease, and parasites, and is even microchipped. Now all she needs is for her family to find her! If you know anyone who might want to add a totally terrific pup to their family, please share this post with them. AND if you'd like more information please private message our Facebook page or email: furryfriendsct@yahoo.com Let's get Maggie to a forever home! She SO deserves it! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rottweiler in Connecticut
    Rottweiler Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. The Rottweiler is a large breed herding and guard dog. Rottweilers are very stable and brave. This breed needs a firm, experienced handler from the very beginning. Rottweilers can be good family pets that are trustworthy with children and other pets if they are trained and socialized from an early age. If a Rottweiler is not treated properly it can become aggressive. Rottweilers need plenty of exercise and can run in open country without a leash. Rottweilers can live in an apartment or a home with a small yard if they get enough exercise.

Rottweilers nearly became extinct in the nineteenth century. Rottweilers are descendents of ancient Italian Mastiffs.
