Rescue Me ID: 17-11-13-00120Spunky (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Spunky seems to have misplaced his spunk! Ever since he was abandoned by his owner to a high kill city shelter, Spunky has seemed depressed. He strikes us as a timid soul, who was unprepared for the chaotic and hostile shelter environment. Indeed, Spunky's fate seemed doomed as he caught the shelter upper respiratory infection, and was relegated to the euthanasia list. Only two years old, he had been fast tracked to the kill list despite receiving good behavior evaluations. We were thrilled to have Spunky join us, but upon arrival, it seemed that we were way more happy to meet him, than Spunky was to meet us. He seemed terrified and ... (Read More)completely shut down. It took a few days for him to relax and relate to handlers, but, slowly, he began to warm up. In a short while, Spunky became loving and affectionate, but still became nervous with new sights and sounds. Our mission was to give this beautiful boy so many positive experiences, that he could reclaim the joy of his puppyhood. Spunky certainly did not project the mighty confidence that we so often see in Dobermans and Rottweillers And yet, he has come around nicely, and seems to enjoy human touch, once he warms up. Spunky can be a bit shy when encountering new people and situations, but his tendency is to back away, rather than respond with fearful aggression. Continued patient handling, and strong leadership, will allow Spunky to experience the wonders of the world in a positive manner. Spunky is petite for the Rottweiller and Doberman breeds, at just 45 pounds, and may be mixed with a schoche of smaller breed DNA to explain his comparatively delicate features. He has all the classic Rottweiller traits without the massive size. Spunky has become a loving boy, who has completely charmed her foster mom. He has done well with other dogs, and he would be an ideal choice for a multi-dog home with well-trained confident dogs, who would help him feel at home and build his confidence. Spunky is behind the learning curve on basic manners and obedience commands, but he is extremely eager to please, and a joy to train. Adopters must be willing to be diligent in his training and socialization. Spunky has begun to learn the basics of the AKC Canine Good Citizenship program, and we recommend that adopters continue him on this path to build his confidence. He is a medium energy pup, who needs a couple of brisk leash walks, as well as focussed playtime, each day to release his pent up energy. Spunky has good house manners, for an older pup, and is housetrained and crate trained. Adopters should be prepared to troubleshoot the occasional accident that may occur he transitions to his new routine. He is neutered, and has been vaccinated for rabies and DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coranavirus). He has had the 4snap test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been microchipped and dewormed. If you are interested in Spunky, please write to or call/text Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-01-00062Samwise (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Poor Samwise is suffering from the 'Puff the Magic Dragon' syndrome, in that he was left behind in the NYC ACC, after his young owner was deployed into military service. As an Owner Surrender, Samwise was at risk for euthanasia after only 48 hours, so he was quickly rerouted to us, so that we could find him a forever home. Samwise quickly settled into foster care, where he charmed absolutely everyone! He is an exhuberant, full of life, adult German Shepherd-Rottweiller mix, who still has considerable youthful goofiness at the age of four. Samwise received good behavior evaluations at the shelter, despite his obvious dislike of the austere ... (Read More)accomodations. Samwise has the playful, stalwart and loyal qualities that Rottweiler and Shepherd enthusiasts admire. Both these breeds are powerful ones that owners must take care to socialize and train properly, in order to avoid having boredom and frustration morph into something worse. Samwise has a good nature, is friendly to all, and has the potential to ace his Canine Good Citizenship exam. He has grasped the basics nicely, and will readily respond to the commands of a calm, assertive human leader. As an active adult dog, Samwise needs a good amount of exercise before he settles down to relax. He would be a good companion for an active single or couple who can commit the time to his training and exercise regimen, or an active family with older kids, who are all on the same page about meeting his needs. Samwise would probably prefer an only dog home, but could likely co-exist with one other well-trained dog, who matches his active energy level. Samwise might be too much of a good thing for cats and toddlers. Samwise strikes us as a tad behind the learning curve in obedience work, but he is a quick study and willing to learn. He will need some consistency in managing jumping up behavior, and reinforcement of basic obedience commands that he has been taught here. Adopters will have to exercise appropriate patience on potty transition. Samwise is house trained and crate trained, so adopters may use this tool to help him adapt to his new environment. Samwise is in good health and has been neutered. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo and parainfluenza and coronavirus), and has been boostered as needed. 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 Samwise, please write to or text/call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-18-00125Cupid (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Cupid is a sage soul, who found himself homeless, along with his housemate Eskie, Precious, after his family lost their residence. He entered the confines of NYC ACC, and did not fare well during the rescue process. He became shy, shut down, and suspicious of human touch, so Shelter workers directed him to us, so that we could evaluate him in a more hospitable environment. We were happy to invite this sad soul to join us, and he has really come out of his shell in foster care. At first meeting, Cupid seems shy and reticent, but he warms quickly once he reconnects to a loving human vibe. He has adjusted beautifully to foster care, has ... (Read More)been a joy to handle. Cupid loves people, and is generally friendly to strangers, once he warms up, but would be happiest in a quiet adult home, where he can chill out. Cupid would be the ideal companion to an active single, or couple, who have large dog, or Rottie experience. Powerful breeds like Rottweillers and Hounds that have a work ethic bred into their DNA, require purposeful lifestyles that challenge their mental and physical faculties. They also need a strong pack leader to teach them Canine Good Citizenship. Cupid has excelled in his obedience work, and this is a great way for an adopter to bond with him, and continue to assume a positive leadership role. Cupid has mastered all of his basic obedience commands, and adopters will be able to get him up to speed and into their lifestyle quickly. Cupid has a moderate energy level and does not require an untoward amount of exercise. A couple of brisk leash walks each day should do the trick and keep him happy and balanced. As an adult dog, Cupid is calm and well behaved in the house. He could easily live in an apartment or home environment, and he would be fine during an 8-hour work day. He would also be happy as the companion to an active retiree with lots of time to spend with him. We think that Cupid may be too sensitive to tolerate young children, and we have not had him around cats. He could easily join a multi-dog home, as he seems to enjoy companionship with his own kind, and has become one of the superstars in our large dog play group. Cupid has good house manners, and is house trained, to the best of our observation, although adopters need to have realistic expectations of Rescue dogs, who may lose some of their potty Mojo and they as they go from place to place during this unwieldy process. We expect adopters to troubleshoot any housetraining issues after the fact. Cupid is in excellent health, and has been neutered. He is vaccinated for Rabies, Parvo, adrenovirus, distemper, coronavirus, leptopirosis, canine influenza, and bordatella. He has been dewormed, and has tested negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. If you are interested in Cupid, please write to, or call/text Denise at cell: 860-908-9738 for an adoption application. (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.
