|Health:|| Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected | Male Rottweiler approximately 4 years of age ready for adoption. Neutered, up to date on shots, and Heart-worm free. He is micro-chipped. This boy was rescued from a horrible abusive environment . Billy had to fight for his survival due to the 'extreme' physical abuse he encountered in the situation he was in prior to my rescuing him. He endured severe abuse to the point he had to fight back to survive. He has undergone physical rehab for physical injuries from a severe facial trauma to having his nails cut so that you were unable to see the nail 'at all', to accomplish this brutal act Billy would have had to have been hogtied. Due to his ... (Read More)past abuse Billy has some anger/aggressive behavioral issues.His aggression and anger is understandable without any doubt. I have been working with him daily on emotional rehab. He has made awesome progress both physically and emotionally. His aggression is being managed with great success showing him how he should have been treated from day one and with a daily prescription of Fluoxetine ,I have cut his daily dose in half he is doing awesome. ( he also has symptoms of simple airborn allergies, a single does of benadryl daily is working). Billy's present behavior challenges are his aggression toward moving vehicles . This issues is getting better and I expect with more time it will no longer be issues. He is geat with children and actually loves to be with children, yet should not be left unsupervised with children, I would not trust a young person in the case of the youngster doing something unintentional which may trigger a past memory and he react in a survival mode. He is great around other dogs and has shown absolutely no territorial behavior in the presence of either a female or male dog. He has not met a dog he does not like. I am very comfortable around him, he obeys me without question. He knows commands such as sit, lay down, stay, be nice, down, and my 'ten more minutes' which means to give me a few minutes. Billy has taught me what he truly needs to be a seriously awesome dog, he respects me highly. Most times he is a big teddy bear, he is loving, kind and compassionate with typical Rottie personality and behavior. He has the large German Rottweiler head, with a patch of white on his chest.. He is seriously a great dog, he simply started his life in a very bad place filled with major abuse. He needs to be adopted into a loving, compassionate, understanding home so that he can continue to live the life he was meant to live, surrounded by love. He is a great dog. A big teddy bear, with memories of abuse which one day will be just be a blur. re-homing fee and adoption application. Children?. Other Dogs OK. Update, Billy spent sometime with my young niece yesterday, he was awesome with her, I was present to monitor the encounter, he was loving and extremely compassionate to her, he could not get close enough to her, I have posted pics of the time they were together. Even with this update I would not leave him unsupervised with young people. Not yet. Adoption Fee: Animal Location: Sedgwick County Wichita, KS (Less) Animal Location:
