Peyton will be 4 in September. She is a very loving dog. She is very energetic and lives with a male dog without issues and 4 children aged 4 to 18. I have never seen aggressive behavior towards humans from her. She has been with us since she was 2 months old. We love her dearly and hate to get rid oof her. She is house trained but has excitement urination. She sleeps in a kennel indoors. She has had her 3 year rabies vacination (5/2016) but needs the other yearly shots. She cannot be with cats. She needs trained to not run away. I have to find her a good home ASAP due to her running off and harming cats. Prefer in the country. Need references. I have to be sure she will be loved and treated properly. She is my baby and I really hate that I have to get rid of her. (Less)

Looking for someone to adopt our pure bred Rottweiler, Lucy. She is extremely loving, sweet and loyal, and we have spent extensive time training her. Unfortunately we can no longer keep her. When she had some health issues (UTI, ear infection), she has snapped at some people and we have a baby at home. At all other times she has been great. We would love to find an active couple or individual who would have more time to spend with her.

MUST LIVE WITHIN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN ILLINOIS BORDER, NO EXCEPTIONS Why, hello! You must be looking for an active and fun, but also sweet and cuddly new buddy to call your best furry friend. You just hit the jackpot by finding my profile because I am the total package! My name is Axel and I am a 10-month-old 65-pound Rottweiler/Hound mix looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. If looks are important to you, I am quite the stunning fellow: aren't the tan markings on my face super unique? They perfectly highlight my big dopey grin and chocolate eyes! But more importantly, my personality is even better than my outward appearance. I am a big love bug and am always up for fun and adventures with my people! Doesn't that sound awesome? My Fetching Tails friends saved me from a kill shelter in southern Illinois. Boy, was I happy to jump on the transport van to start my new life! In fact, I am happy pretty much all the time now. I have so much fun in my foster home and get to go on field trips to play with my canine friends at the dog park a few times per week. I am what you might call a 'social butterfly' and I love making new friends of both the doggie and human variety. I have played well with dogs both big and small, though sometimes I need to be gently reminded that I am a big, strong boy and not itty bitty like some of my best friends (my doggie foster brother is only 12 pounds!); I love my friends and would never want to accidentally hurt them so I am a good listener when my human tells me I should think about calming down a bit or take a quick break from playtime. I am an active boy -- hey I am young and have some energy to work with! -- so I would love my forever family to enjoy outdoor adventures as much as I do. It would be fun to have a fenced yard so we can play zoomies (that's a technical dog-language term for running around as fast as we can) and fetch with my favorite balls and squeaky toys. I also really love car rides and long walks; just imagine all the fun places we could explore on long hikes and even jogs together! I am sure I would make a great workout buddy if you are looking for one. But fun fact: when I am all done with my adventures, nothing, and I mean nothing, makes me happier than curling up on the lap of my human for some serious cuddle time. Don't let my size fool you, big dogs can be lap dogs, too! I know that my humans have to get up and do stuff from time to time, but I would be totally content to stay cuddled with you indefinitely. I am an affectionate boy; I love to let you know how happy you make me with snuggles and kisses. I also have really good house manners so I would make an excellent addition to your home. I am crate trained and sleep in mine overnight and while my foster mom is at work, and even like taking naps in there when the door is left open so I can come and go as I please. It's my little man cave! And I am mostly potty trained; don't get me wrong, I know that I am supposed to go potty outside but sometimes I get so excited and happy to see you that I have a little dribble accident. With patience and more practice I will have the potty thing nailed down soon! I also know some basic commands, and I love getting treat rewards so much that I will 'give paw' without prompting just to show you what a good boy I am. So what do you think? I sound like I could be your new best friend, right? If sweet, loving, devoted, playful and endlessly happy sound like what you are looking for in your canine companion please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails today and tell them you are ready for a lifetime of fun and adventures with Axel!

*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 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.
