[Read About Natural Incontinence Care] This is Pasha! We have two Rottweilers and a baby on the way, and are realizing we need to find a new home for our sweet Pasha to make room for this growing family. She is a loving, submissive, yet protective girl-- she'll let you know when something unusual is going on outside, then will stop barking when asked/commanded. She is trained using an e-collar; human training on these collars is available if needed upon adoption. Her favorite things are catching a bounced ball, snuggling, giving kisses, and TREATS. This girl will do anything for a treat. She has a couple special needs. The first of which is a ... (Read More)generally calm environment-- she gets anxious and fearful in chaotic environments or around heightened emotions. One trigger for her anxiety is small children (under 6-7 yrs of age), especially those who are fearful/boisterous around Pasha. We often put a Thunder Shirt on her and put her in a kennel in a separate room when we have young kids in the house. She LOVES our niece who is 8 years old and would snuggle her all day long if allowed. Another trigger for her anxiety is other dogs-- she has not been aggressive toward other dogs we've spent time with, but definitely seems a little worked up and on edge. She would thrive best in a single-dog household. She also sleeps with an incontinence pad on her bed, as we have found that she dribbles a little urine now and then when she's sleeping. We wash it 1-2 times per month and that keeps that issue pretty well contained. On nights that she gets to snuggle in our bed, we simply put the pad up on top of the covers, and let her sleep on it up on the bed. She is in heaven when allowed to snuggle in a human bed-- she often flips belly up and sleeps with all four legs sprawled in the air. When meeting strangers, she tends to need a little coaxing to warm up to them. She'll bark, but doesn't jump up when someone comes in the door. She's generally comfortable with women. Men need to give her a couple extra minutes of sniffing, calm petting, and sweet voices-- then she's their best friend. If she would need to be boarded during travel, it is important for her to have a few visits first to get to know the staff first. She thrives around confident dog-people who treat her affectionately. Pasha is playful and spunky and loves to get a little exercise daily. However, after slipping on the ice when she was 1 yr old and having both knees surgically repaired, her running stride is a little awkward. She appears comfortable and has fully healed, but the range of motion of her knees was altered. She prefers romping, close-range fetch, tug-of-war, and leisurely walks as opposed to full sprints or long distance jogs. She is otherwise healthy, happy, spayed, and current on vaccinations. We would prefer someone who is experienced/knowledgeable about Rottweilers for adopting Pasha. She will make a loving addition to the right home! (Less) Animal Location:
