|Rescue Me ID: 16-07-28-00568Gauge (male)|
To Whom It may Concern, I have a beautiful black lab/rotti mix who needs to be rehomed. Gauge is a super smart, eager to please, sweet boy who needs some one on one work to get over some of his quirks. I adopted gauge through a friend in 10/15 as a companion to my young GSD. I thought the two could be buds and keep each other company when no one was home. The dynamic duo clicked well for the first 3-4 months but then my GSD (who is intact due to a heath condition) started to bully Gauge. I worked with the two to decrease the incidence, but the bullying continued, especially when I was at work. We have a very busy house, with three kids, a grandmother and two working parents and despite my efforts, the dogs would be left unattended at times and would occasionally get into physical altercations. As the frequency of theses altercations increased, Gauge started guarding his toys, food and crate. He would never guard against me, but has growled at my husband and other adults. We tried some resource guarding techniques, but truthfully have not been able to dedicate the time needed to truly address the problem. Our solution was to have me be the primary care giver etc to the dogs so that Gauge would not react. It was ok but the problem still persisted and was present when I wasn't home. We finally decided to rehome Gauge when he and my GSD got into a significant fight 2 weeks ago over a tennis ball. I was playing with them, each had their own ball, but Gauge had it in his head that he had to have Otto's ball and when he tried to take it, the fight started. Thankfully neither dog was badly injured but it was clear at that point that the two could not longer live together. Gauge gets along with every other dogs he has ever met. He has gone to obedience school, doggy day care and on multiple play dates. He is not dog aggressive. I just think the dynamic between the two is too much for him and has led him to develop these other fear based behaviors. Since the fight the dogs have been separated while we have been trying to find Gauge a good home. Again, I have been the primary care giver and my family has done their best to help when I am at work. Unfortunately, yesterday my 14yo son was trying to let Gauge out and spooked him resulting in Gauge nipping at his hand. My son said that he opened Gauge's crate door and Gauge did not want to come out. He said that he opened the side and front door of the crate and Gauge ran out and under the table. My son thought that something was wrong and when he reached under the table to try to see if Gauge was ok, Gauge snapped at him. This was 100% a fear biting response, not a vicious attack. I do not know why he is suddenly so scared, all I can guess is that the stress of the environment and dynamic between he and my GSD is too much. Gauge is not a bad dog AT ALL. He is sweet and loving and eager to please. He is so smart, great on a leash and has excellent recall. He just needs to right home. He is neutered, UTD on all vaccines and preventatives and has no health problems. He is only 20 months old. can you please help!! I look forward to hearing from you. (Less)

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