Rescue Me ID: 18-03-22-00051Memphis (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi! My name is Memphis. I'm a two-year-old Rottweiler. I am a gorgeous, stunning boy with a heart of gold. I seem to know all of my doggy manners. I can sit on command, and am willing to learn more. I have an easygoing temperament, but since I am such a big dog I am very strong and could use a bit of work on a leash. I would do best with an owner who is familiar with my breed and can handle a large dog like me. I am a comical, happy-go-lucky fella with a clownish overbite and perked ears. Adopt a sweetheart like me... I deserve a second leash on life!

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Did you stop to look at me because I look snuggly? I am!! My name is Quincy and I am looking for a job as professional snuggler! I am not sure why but I have been bounced all over the place this last year...from a shelter to several different foster homes and then I met these nice ladies who decided that I was all done bouncing around. They got together and asked The Halfway House Rescue ladies if they would let me be a part of their rescue. It has been so awesome being with them! I have the best foster mom and dad! They have cats and we are learning to be buddies. I love to curl up in their little cat beds! My foster mom takes me for a ... (Read More)walk or run every night and I love it. She says I have a lot of energy that I need to burn, whatever that means. She would like for a very active family to adopt me. Maybe even someone who runs. Because I run like the wind! I get really excited when I meet new people but foster mama says I can't jump on them so we are working on that every day. I can't help it, I love everyone! I have a strong personality because I have never had a leader in my life and have been bounced constantly I always had to take care of myself but foster mom is teaching me that she is in charge and I can just relax. I can be absolutely AMAZING with other dogs but it takes a good introduction. As you can see above, once I have bonded with the other dogs in the household, I become very very attached to them and snuggle with them all the time. I need an experienced owner who will show me the right way to act, and I need a family who will give me lots of exercise to help me channel my energy into something constructive. I am house trained and crate trained. I have had all of my vaccines, I am neutered, and I am on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. I have also been microchipped. If you think I might be the dog for your family, please email my rescue today! (Less)

Animal ID: SSRR17-1007-047Rose (female)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    Rose was picked up by an animal control officer in Virginia while she was wandering the streets. She was shy and withdrawn from some people, but after a few minutes of meeting her at the shelter, she was in my lap. It was obvious that she was young, our vet estimates her at about 2 years old, possibly had a litter and needed medical attention for her eyes. Her eye surgery went great and her spay gave us a surprise. She had pyromtera, if left untreated, that alone could have been the end of this sweet girl. She recovered extremely well and we soon began to see the 'real Rose' out of the shelter, in a home and recovered. She's so sweet and ... (Read More)pretty. She's young with so much to offer, like a Rose Bud that hasn't blossomed yet. She loves everything! Except cats, no cats for her! Want to walk, run, play fetch, go for a drive? She's your girl! Want to relax and read a book? She'll put her head in your lap. Want to watch a movie? She'll lay on the couch and snuggle. Oh, she loves her snuggles and cuddles! Bedtime? Sometimes she'll slip in the bed and I let her. She wants belly rubs before she goes to sleep. When the alarm goes off, it can go one of two ways. She might put a paw on you with a look that says 'hit snooze, let's cuddle', or...she'll take all the covers off you! This smart girl has taken right to crate training. She walks well on a leash, some gentle reinforcement to keep her on track and she's right there. Knows all basic commands including sit, lay down, stay, come, fetch, give paw and she even gives hugs!! She's a rather petite little thing, so I don't mind the hugs and she's very gentle. She wants to play with every dog she meets and shows no aggression (except those pesky felines). She's also very submissive to my other female and male. For a Rottie, she may be small but she thinks she is mighty! She is the only one that barks when there's a stranger at the door and she sounds so fierce and is so little, it's adorable! She also does the Rottie lean, but unlike my other Rottie at almost twice her size, her lean doesn't almost knock me down. She's about 60lbs and not expected to be more than 70. She's beautiful, smart, loving and as loyal as any Rottie twice her size! (Less)

Animal ID: SSRR17-0628-036Atlas (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Where to begin? Even though I am about 8 years old, my story begins a few months ago. You see, a few months ago without reason or explanation, I found myself in a scary place called a 'shelter'. The shelter said my time was almost up, but I got lucky and was going to a Rescue and a foster mom (I just call her Mom). She has a teenage daughter, another dog and a cat. I liked her and she liked me, so I moved in. Initially, I was very reserved and not sure what to do and spent a lot of time in my house (kennel). Slowly I started coming out and Mom noticed that I walked a little funny. She made an appointment and I had blood work and what ... (Read More)they call an Xray. The blood work showed that I was anemic, Mom said that's ok because she is too. They also found something on my Xray and Mom says it is why my walk wasn't quite right, I have arthritis. The vet said the amount of pain I was in had to be considerable. They gave me some medicine and Mom began to see a difference in me right away. All of a sudden, I was moving around more and even started going upstairs! She thinks this may be part of the reason I don't like getting into cars too, it hurts. Once I get in, I like the ride especially with the windows down just a little. Mom is just amazed at how much pain I had to be in and yet was still sweet, gentle and eager to please. She says that I am I am a good boy and that from day one; I have not had a single accident in the house. I know my manners, but sometimes I am hardheaded. She says I have the Rottie lean down to perfection and that I do not believe in privacy. If she leaves the door open, even just a little bit, I walk in when she is taking a shower! I know Sit, Lay Down, Come and she thinks I know Stay, but pretend that I don't! I walk very well on a leash and if I pull a little bit, Mom says 'To Me' and I go right back to her side and stop pulling. She is also teaching me something called 'Ignore' and I don't like it very much. See Mom has a cat outside and I want to chase it very, very badly. I don't know why, I just want to chase it! So when we walk past the cat and I want to go after it, Mom says 'Ignore' and turns me in a different direction. It's the same with small dogs, I want to chase them but then Mom goes and says 'Ignore' and I can't chase them. I do not like this word, Ignore! My doggie sister is a Ridgeback mix and she's about 60lbs, almost my age and she is teaching me to play! My sister and I romp and roll around the house and it makes Mom smile. She makes sure we don't play rough, but says only happy dogs play like that, so I guess I am a happy dog! Oh, and there is something called Toys. At first I didn't know what to do, but I watched my doggie sister and Mom kept bringing home different ones until one day, I grabbed one and it squeaked! How great is that?! Mom now keeps a basket of toys by my crate so I can get a toy whenever I want! Sometimes my doggie sister comes and sneaks one of my toys and I let her, there are lots of toys. She eats out of my bowl too, and Mom yells at her for that, but I don't mind. I really like meeting new people too. Mom takes me for a walk everyday unless it's raining, I don't like going outside in the rain. Sometimes I see horses, deer, birds, other dogs and make new people friends. I do well with large dogs, especially the girls! Sometimes the boys seem to want to fight, and that makes me uncomfortable. I still really want to chase anything small though. After a few months, Mom says I am all Rottie. That I am very smart, loyal, eager to please and protective. That is why she named me Atlas, because at 125lbs I would carry the world on my shoulders if you asked me too, even if it would hurt me to do so. At bedtime Mom says 'go to bed' and sister and I rush upstairs and go to the bedroom. Mom has to help me in the bed because I can't get up there by myself and if she doesn't help me, I just put my head on the bed and stare at her until she gets up and helps me. I lay down beside her, she tells me stories about other dogs she fostered, what she saw at work, and she tells me about something called a forever home. After she falls asleep, my doggie sister gets in the bed and I go to my bed (crate) and dream about toys and a forever home. (Less)
