Animal ID: SSRR17-0401-023Rossi (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Rossi was dumped at a SC shelter with little explanation. He is a delightful male who is in the preparation phase of his heartworm treatment. He's a total love with people. Rossi will throw himself in to the arms of the veterinary staff and dissolves to mush for cuddling. He has been cautious when his foster mom's brother comes in the house, but warms up quickly. Rossi gets along well with the female rottweilers in the home, however he doesn't care for the smaller whippets, male or female. Therefore, we say that he is good with some dogs but NOT with all dogs. He doesn't know how to play well with the Rottie girls even though he does try! ... (Read More)He's a bit pushy, loud, boisterous and rude for their taste, but they are working on teaching him. Someone, somewhere, spent time with Rossi. He beams when you praise him for sit, down and shake - things that he had already been taught. He loves balls and will roll and toss them all over the house. We have absolutely no doubt that he will thrive in a home with another larger female dog and parents that have the time to devote to making him the best he can be. Rossi WANTS to please and do things. (Less)

Animal ID: SSRR17-0217-'017Lola (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Hi! I'm Lola... I came to my new foster home not knowing what to expect. I was a little unsure at first, but my foster parents let me have my space and let me come to them. They were just as skeptical of me as I was of them. After I realized I wasn't as bad a doggie as I thought I was, I've opened up to them and gained their trust. I now love to be with one of them when I can be. Once I trust you, I love my belly and head rubbed!! I'll fall at your feet for you to rub my belly!! :) Oh yeah I also LOVE squeaky toys!! I'll play by myself and be just as content!! My foster parents have two doggies, and we sometimes go for walks together to get ... (Read More)to know one another, but we haven't gotten to play together yet. We're taking baby steps in the right direction. I'm a big baby. I think I weigh 10lbs and not 100lbs!! I know basic commands. I like to play fetch sometimes too! When I see people or something that excites me I get all excited jumping around, nub waggling and sometimes I may bark just out of excitement, but I really don't mean anything by it. I'm just excited, and happy. Basically I'm just vocal. When I play with my toys I do a little growling. I walk OK on a leash but need a little bit more work on that. But hey, I'm willing to learn! I'm a very intelligent girl. I just need someone to be patient with me. We're working on seeing what I mingle well with so be patient and keep a look out on my profile for updates! If you think I could be a part of your family, and you can give me plenty of belly rubs, and oh yes BRUSHING!! Then fill out an adoption application. I'm not available for adoption yet.. But they say sometimes the best finish last! (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive

    Toby is a gorgeous, fun and high energy boy. Toby's ideal home would be with someone who has a very active lifestyle (runners/joggers/trailblazers), has a fenced yard (REQUIRED, no exceptions) and with no cats or kids. Toby currently lives with two rottie siblings and should get along fine with other dogs in the household with proper introductions. Toby loves to go on walks and is not dog or people reactive on the leash. He's a big, strong boy and will need an experienced handler, especially when he sees a squirrel! He's a strong puller and will benefit from some training to turn him into a great walking partner. Toby is house trained, ... (Read More)uses a doggy door, loves going on car rides and knows commands like sit, down and shake. He is treat motivated, eager to please and very smart so training is made easy with this wonderful boy! Toby can be a little uneasy around strangers, but once he warms up to you he is a total sweetheart! He will roll over on his back to have his belly rubbed but his favorite thing is to play in the yard with giant toys. Toby is estimated to be around two years old. If you can provide Toby with his ideal home please fill out an Adoption Application and bring your new best friend home! (Less)

Animal ID: SSRR16-1209-074Dallas (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Dallas, He is an adorable 11 mo old pup that is ready to play and then knows when it's time to be calm. With a little bit of guidance, he is so well mannered. If you are looking for a dog to be your best friend and a loyal companion, one you want to be by your side Dallas is your dog. He loves being with his humans. He loves cuddling, lying next to you or on top of you if he can. Dallas doesn't mind chillin on the couch for a movie or just having a good conversation. Wherever you are is where he wants to be. Because Dallas is a young fellow he does need daily exercise. He stays pretty calm in the house, but he has alot of energy. ... (Read More)Someone who enjoys outside activities would be very beneficial for Dallas. He lives with a male rottie and a female pit. They have become best friends. It took a little while for the male rottie to warm up to him, but really who couldn't love that face? We like to run around the yard together and play keep away with the ball. Dallas is crate trained. Because he is young and curious I would recommend when you are not home to crate him to keep him safe. He is house trained. No problems with him chewing things he shouldn't. If he does and you tell him no he stops. He loves toys, lots of toys, all types of toys. Finding toys he doesn't destroy is a challenge. He listens well and is quick to learn commands and is food motivated and willing to learn. (Less)

Animal ID: SSRR16-0415-044-2Hazel (female)

Rottweiler    Age: Adult

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

    Hi, my name is Hazel . I am originally from Richmond but I now live in a nice suburb in Northern Virginia. I have a great foster mom who takes care of me, you see, when my mom first picked me up from animal control I was in bad shape. I was living on the streets for a while so I was dirty, had an upper respiratory infection and an ear infection. I was skinny and very hungry. I have a goofy Rottie brother that I live with. I don't mind a home with other dogs but I take a little time to get comfortable with them. I don't like small dogs or cats. I hike with my rottie brother and a couple of his doggie friends, which are my friends ... (Read More)now, and I love being around them! I have many human children as friends, some as young as 3 years old. I am very gentle when I greet them and I will stand still so they can love on me. I have learned to share my toys and will bring them to you so we can play. Fetch is my favorite game! My mom says that I am a very sweet and smart girl. I know sit, come, wait, go back and down. I am house trained, crate trained and don't touch things that don't belong to me. There are many things that I enjoy in this new life I have. I love baths and will get into the tub with no issues - who wouldn't want to be pampered with a soapy massage!? I also don't mind if you clean out my ears, trim my nails or brush me. I love going for car rides because that means I am going on an adventure!! Hiking, walking on trails and wading through streams are some of the things I get to do. I do love my downtime and cuddling with you. My mom always tells me that I am a very special girl and that I will need a very special human. Back when I was a stray, life was rough. I have an old injury, a torn ACL, and I take daily pain and anti-inflammatory medication for this. I have mild hip dysplasia and I shuffle a little when I walk. Don't think of me any differently though - I still chase squirrels and rabbits with my rottie brother and can outrun him!! I also had a mammary tumor which was removed and biopsied. It came back as a low grade cancer and my vet is cautiously optimistic of a good prognosis. I am spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and had a dental cleaning. If you want to be my hiking companion, snuggle buddy and best friend please fill out an Adoption Application! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-11-03-00221Maxwell (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    FOSTER NEEDED!!! Maxwell has lived around cats and did great. He had no prey drive and was just curious but would lose interest quickly. Having said that, we always like to remind potential adopters that even though a dog has lived with cats amiably, you still need to use caution and introduce them very slowly as new environments/different cats can cause different reactions. Maxwell is great with kids and other dogs. He lived with 2 other dogs (an 8 yr old male Saluki mix and a 5 yr old female Rottweiler). Maxwell immediately hit it off with the female but it took a bit of time (about a month) for the two boys to play nice together. He ... (Read More)enjoys playing with the dogs in the yard but doesn't like to hang out by himself. Maxwell loves to be loved on and takes Rottie leaning to a whole new level, leaning until he's laying on your feet. He crates beautifully! Maxwell also had 3 children (ages 13, 8 & 7) that would come over every weekend and he followed them around (like a puppy), loved on them and gave lots of kisses. We believe Maxwell has been abused at one point in his life since he will cringe at times when you reach to pet him. Maxwell does not like to be pet from above his head so its always best to underhand with petting. Since coming to SSRR he has vastly improved, rarely flinching anymore. Maxwell knows 'sit', but it may take a little time, since he will need to trust you first. Maxwell is crate trained and walks well on the leash. He LOVES to go for walks. Maxwell was very underweight and hungry all the time when he came to SSRR. He would look everywhere for something to eat, in the pantry, on the counter, even in the recycle bin. But now that he knows he is going to be taken care of and fed, he doesn't have to do those things any more but he would prefer not to be bothered when he eats and is used to eating in a separate room. UPDATE 7/28/2016: Maxwell went to be evaluated today for what we thought was a torn ACL repair. After seeing one of the better specialists in our area, it has been determined that Maxwell's injury is too old and there is too much wear down for any type of surgery to be successful. If we were to put him through the surgery, it would pretty much be for nothing and we will not do that to him. Maxwell has been put on anti-inflammatories as well as pain relievers to be taken as needed. Maxwell doesn't let his injury stop him though. He still loves to go for walks, go for car rides and loves to play with other dogs. He will let you know when he needs to slow down. Maxwell will never be an agility dog or a running partner but if you are looking for a very sweet and loving boy then Maxwell is the one for you. (Less)

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