Rescue Me ID: 16-07-18-00712Beast (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to review and consider my post. I have had my rottweiler puppy since he was 2months old in 2015. He is an adorable very friendly dog and VERY energetic. He loves to be petted by everybody. His little tail is always wagging. He weighs about 100-105 pounds and expected to grow more since he is only 1 year and 1monhts old (13months). I am currently in the position where I no longer have the time to care for him unfortunately. He is very smart dog and learns things very fast. For example, he learned BANG (fake dead) command in less than 30 minutes. In addition, he was potty trained when he was only 3 ... (Read More)months old and knows lot of other commands. Also, since he is energetic he needs A LOT of love and ATTENTION & a lot of walking time. I would 100% prefer to give him to a family who have a big enough space like a house or a really big apartment since he is large breed, & the kind of family who does not need to keep the dog crated, because keeping him in crate makes him unhappy. He would be perfect for someone looking to give A LOT of love and time whether it be a family or a single person or a couple, I am simply hoping to find a loving home where a lot of love will be given to him. This has been a very hard decision for me to make given the fact that I have had this adorable fur baby since he was only less than 3 months until now, but unfortunately I am in very difficult situation and I have to make the decision that is best for both him and myself. I AM HOPING AND PRAYING, that he will be in the hands of very kind and dog loving people who are simply looking to give their love and attention to a new pet. PLEASE TEXT OR EMAIL ME ONLY ALONG WITH A LITTLE INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF ONLY IF YOU THINK HE WILL BE A GOOD FIT INSIDE OF YOUR HOME. (Less)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Senior

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

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Hello everyone! My name is Ari, and I'm a sweet senior girl with a lot of love yet to give! I like to think of myself as aged to perfection. You know, like fine wine or good cheese. I'm a beautiful, brown eyed girl with an expressive look that will melt your heart! I'm a Rottweiler mix, so I'm just a tad smaller than your average Rottie and weigh in at about 100 pounds of love. And at 10 years young, I'm a Special Reserve vintage. I was rescued by Fetching Tails Foundation after being dumped by the side of the road in a local suburb; a witness saw ... (Read More)my family push me out of their car and drive away. I'm not sure why, because my Foster Mom and Dad (FM and FD) say I'm just about as sweet as they come, and that I'm such a good girl! Maybe they didn't want me anymore because I move a little slower than I used to, or because I had some untreated health issues. Not to worry, though! FTF made certain I got the treatment I needed. Once FTF heard about me, my story took a wonderful turn for the better. Now I'm in a foster home where I'm loved and pampered, with a furry foster sister to keep me company. My FM just loves it when I greet her at the door wagging my nub of a tail. I'm an easy-going girl, and I'm no longer interested in running through the grass chasing squirrels - I leave that to my much younger foster sister. Instead, I prefer to be close to you. If you're busy folding laundry or fixing dinner, I'm right there to supervise. If it's time to kick up your feet and relax with your favorite TV show or a classic book, I enjoy lying near your feet and just being nearby in case you want to pet me. I love having my belly rubbed, and if you hit just the right spot on my belly or behind my ears, I'll 'purr' (in a very dignified, doggy-kind-of-way, of course!). If you stop petting me before I'm ready, I gently place my paw on your knee while gazing into your eyes. Gentle, pretty, endearing, and all-around charming - that's me! I'd like my new home to be fairly laid back. I like everyone I meet, but sometimes younger dogs and kids don't understand that I'm not as spry as I'd like to be. If there are other dogs, I would prefer older, more settled fur siblings like myself. I'm good with older kids who understand that I'm not as playful these days, and I would enjoy a fenced yard so I can go outside off leash to relax or do my business. I'm fully house trained, and I even know to go potty in a specific area of the yard - no hunting for messy piles in the middle of your lawn with me! I'm well-educated, too. I know 'sit,' 'down,' 'paw,' and 'come,' but if you want to teach me more commands, I'm game! Hey, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. I'm crate trained, but I don't really need to be crated -- I know what's acceptable for me to chew on, and I pride myself on my excellent manners! I'm fine being left alone for 8 or 9 hours at a time, although I'm lucky enough that my foster home has a dog walker for me and the foster sis on the few occasions no one is home. I have to admit, I kinda like that I don't get left more than 5 or 6 hours at a time. I'm used to having people around (FM and FD have alternating schedules), but I'm adaptable if everyone is out during the day. It would be great if you had the flexibility to work from home one or two days a week, though! I'm really looking forward to finding a family who will love and cherish me for the rest of my life. I know I still have a lot to give to a family, or just to one person! If you think I would be a good fit for your home, please hurry and contact my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation. I'm waiting patiently for you!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rottweiler in Illinois
    Rottweiler Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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 were used to herd cattle for the Roman Legion so the soldiers would have meat. Rottweilers are often used as police dogs. Rottweilers are descendents of ancient Italian Mastiffs.
