Rescue Me ID: 16-06-11-00177Rocky (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Rocky is 5 years old and 83 lbs. He absolutely loves his people. He seeks out touch and will ask you to pet him by putting his head in your lap, or nuzzling your hand. After he knows you well, he likes to give kisses! He is housetrained, and never destroys your belongings. He walks well on a leash, unless he sees another dog (then he will pull all the way home). He has a history of aggression with other dogs, and needs to be the only pet in the house. He also has a very high prey drive towards cats, and shouldn't be allowed to interact with small children. More about his aggression: Rocky is very anxious about other dogs; this is what ... (Read More)drives his aggression towards them. Someone who has experience with reactive dogs, or is willing to learn about reactivity, would be an ideal owner for Rocky. I have taken him to two six-week sessions of 'reactive rehab' dog training classes using clicker training and positive reinforcement, and he has improved greatly. Whereas he used to sprint towards the window and bark like crazy if there was another dog outside, he now is much more calm and doesn't feel the need to guard the windows like he used to. A nightly 8-minute 'relaxation protocol' has made him a much calmer dog as well. If other dogs are nowhere to be found, Rocky is a very laid-back guy. He loves following you from room to room so he can lie down by your feet. He doesn't care about fetch at all, but loves his flirt pole, and likes to play chase. He loves going on a walk or a run with you. 'Outside' is probably his favorite word. Medical notes: Rocky hates getting his nails clipped and needs to wear a muzzle when getting a trim. Most of his front teeth are broken and will need attention sooner than later. If he is on lower quality kibble, he becomes prone to dandruff and ear infections. He is fixed, heartworm-free, and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Good manners: Rocky will NOT break into your garbage, chew up your things, bark at you (he prefers to make a yawning noise if he wants to talk to you), dig up your yard, steal your food, or jump up on guests! He knows sit, lay down, leave it, and come. He will be an amazing, loving pet for someone who wants to spoil him with attention and belly rubs. (Less)

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