Rescue Me ID: 14-10-09-00637Gravity (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    It is with a heavy heart that I write this tonight. I have had Gravity since he was 10 weeks old. He was purchased from a breeder. He is a rotty-pitty mix with beautiful markings! While I am a true dog lover (exsp. of the bully breed) I am making this profile because I know a new forever home is in Gravity's best interest. First I will explain why I am looking to place him. I have a couch potato five year old male pitty who thinks he is a human. He gets irritated with Gravity's play-fullness and hyper nature. Gravity is dominate over him but it has never escaled into a fight of any sort. I also have a three year old who gravity has for the ... (Read More)most part been wonderful with! However, one of his biggest issues is 'jumping'! He is always so happy and ready to go that he has a habit of knocking the little one over. He also like to jump up onto adults to greet them. Gravity WILL require firm training! He needs someone who is able to give him the time he DESERVES! He LOVES to run, play, etc. I could see him being a dog that goes on hikes, to the dog park, etc. But unfortunately, with my current plate load of schooling, work, and a toddler I have been unable to meet his exercise and physical needs. Gravity is a goofy boy looking for love. He loves to cuddle in your bed at night and often follows people around as if he doesn't want to be alone. He needs time outs when he gets to rough during play time. He is a nipper. Not ever in an aggressive manner but very much so in an overactive under trained way. I have had no experience in training a strong willed male dominate hyper dog and feel he needs to be placed with someone who can give him the opportunity to be all that he can. He is a very large boy. For 15 months old he is already bigger than my five year old pit. Because of his size I hope that someone will be able to give him the training needed to stop nipping/jumping before he gets bigger! He is a couch potato after he gets his energy out. He doesn't enjoy car rides and has a tendency to get sick (although he recently had a successful 40 min car ride and seemed to have a great time). He loves to chew as he is still teething and is very much so in love with bones from the butcher shop. He has been fed table scraps and is good at accepting treats easily. He loves to give kisses but still needs work in order to walk effectively on a leash. He has never been exposed to cats or other small animals. He used to be let free in our yard and stayed in the vacinity and came when hollered to. The last couple months and due to a new home he has been utilizing a dog crate while inside (for time outs), a play yard out back, and house time when he is being well behaved. He loves dog toys and squeekies. He is neutered and only lacking one or two vaccinations that I am willing to get done prior to placement. I am hoping to find him a home where his new mommy/and or daddy will be comfortable keeping occasional contact and or sending pics. I wish with all my heart I could keep my big goofy boy. But because I love him so it is now my mission to find him the best situation/setting/opportunity to live out his life. I would like to set up a meeting or two and would like to make it known ahead of time that if someone takes Gravity and for any reason it is not working out I would like to take him back. I would also extend the opportunity in the future that if he ever needed to be watched for vacation or what have you that Gravity will always have a place with us. I look forward to hearing from prospective new homes. I am open to answering any questions. I will have more pics of him per request. The current pic is recent (the last couple of weeks). He NEEDS to be included in family life and is looking for a true dog loving companion! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rottweiler in Maine
    Rottweiler Dogs can make good pets in Maine 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.
