Rescue Me ID: 14-07-13-00288Aaliyah (female)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Aaliyah is a very friendly & affectionate 6 year old Rottweiler mix who loves to be the center of attention. She's an inside do who would benefit from a fenced in yard and a home with older kids. She loves walks in the park but has no problem being a couch potato. She does well with other dogs, but requires slow introductions as she gets very excited. She is 100% housebroken and needs a loving home as I am moving out of state and sadly cannot take her with me to my rental property. I promise you will fall in love as soon as you meet her.

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-23-00155Mars (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    So the short version: my neighbor talked his son's friend into giving up Mars at about 5 months old and asked if I'd take him knowing I'm very familiar with the breed. He is now over 3 yrs old. It was about a month into that I started to realize exactly how abused he'd been and how he wasn't properly socialized 'at all'. I've had several trainers already and I'm at a loss outside of trying to re-home him somewhere where there are much less neighbors and other dogs. It's too much stimulation for him. His anxiety/fear issues just keep getting worse no matter how much he's worked with and I'm getting extremely concerned that I'm going to be ... (Read More)put in the position to have no choice but to put him down. There are a lot of small dogs that are walked off leash but very aggressive towards him. And I've been trying to do everything to avoid that because when it's just me and my son and even having friends over he is such the clown and so sweet. But even going to the vet this last time it was noticeable to the point his temp went up and they called to ask if he'd been sick. We'd even had his personal bubble shrunk to a very small one (about a foot or two) and now we are almost back to square one (very big). I'm at a complete loss at where else to go or even who to ask. I would never put an add out on craigslist either. But I do know I need to do what is best for Mars and being here in Centreville in such a populated area is becoming more than he can deal with and unfortunately my moving to a quiet place that I could still afford isn't going to be able to happen. He's obedience/house trained and truly a sweet dog and as long as a proper introduction is done he warms up to others with no problem. Right now at least, he cannot be around other dogs and kids tend to make him nervous if it's more than one at a time. So no large crowds of people/animals. He basically needs a large yard/property that's quiet without a lot of people and other dogs around. He loves to be outside too. If you know of anyone who could help I would be so very grateful. And no, I'm not asking for any money. I just want to find him somewhere where he's happy and feels safe. Thanks so much I guess maybe I should have been a little clearer in what has been done for him, why I didn't sugar coat any issues with him, and my experience. I was also trying to make it so the description wasn't so long but adding this in for those it's not completely clear. I grew up with the breed and it is the only breed I've ever had myself. When I agreed to take him no one knew how badly he had been abused and we only had a minor idea of how unsocialized he'd been during his short 5 months. Let me stress, I am completely experienced and educated on the breed, which is why I know and have to accept I am not Mar's forever home. I was able to provide for him to get him out of the situation he was in and provide him a loving home and much needed training but he needs more than an apartment/townhome environment can give him. I can absolutely control him while onleash. Right now the immediate problem is all the small dogs that are walked off leash and even when onleash just bark, growl, and/or sound like their screaming at him. That alone is having a huge impact for him. We moved into where I'm at when it was getting colder and didn't realize there were SO many of these kinds of dogs around. He's already been attacked by one of those small dogs that got loose from it's owner. No damage to either dog, outside of setting Mars's progress back by bounds. And I absolutely know what will happen if he's attacked and Mars is able to defend himself. He'll be blamed because of his breed. He is ok with people but yes, I am very aware of his body language at ALL times because he does have a tendency to be cautious with guys. And more than one kid at a time makes him nervous. I've already been told by the Rottweiler rescues in the area that they will not take him because of his dog issues and they believe he should be put down. I am very much trying to avoid that if at all possible. IF there is the person/environment out there for him then I need to at least try. Mars is too sweet to not at least try... Which leads me to the, I know it has to be the perfect person with the perfect environment. You have not seen picky until you see me screening any potential person for Mars. That person has to understand not only the breed but his issues and why he has them. And I would never, ever, put him on Craigslist. That could easily find him back in the abusive situation he was taken out of at 5 months old or even worse. So I hope this clarifies a few things... (Less)

    she no longer gets along with our other female dog and I fear that they will fight and one of them will seriously get hurt or worse. Want to find her a good home with a human that can deal with her as a one animal home. She has lots of energy and likes to play, sometimes a little too much for us. We have health issues and she is a very strong dog.

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    JoJo was with his sister who attached a small dog last year. The dog survived, but we had to go to court to save JoJo and Sky. The are now dubbed 'dangerous dogs'. They have to have maintained a $100k liability policy. They are microchipped, and have restrictions. No homeowner's insurance will grant a policy due to last year's incident. I don't want to get rid of them because they are great dogs. Unfortunately, we can't afford to keep them.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We are located in south west VA near Mt.Airy Nc. If you do not want to drive to us we will drive to you. Our transport fee is 40 cents per mile round trip. Sadie is a beautiful 3 year old Rottweiler mix. She has a wonderful and VERY sweet personality. She is excellent with children and other dogs. She has lived outside her whole life in a kennel(she has a huge fenced back yard at the foster's home), but would adjust well to living inside if someone wanted her to be an inside dog. She is very laid back and humble and so willing to please her human. Sadie is spayed, current heartworm testing and on prevention, current on flea prevention and ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-08-00449Roxie (female)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Arthritis 

     If you're looking for a sweet, affectionate, and gentle companion to add to your family, you've found the right gal! Roxie is an 8-year old, medium sized, 63-pound, Rottweiler/Shepherd mix who was surrendered to a rural shelter and was fortunately rescued by BARK. She is incredibly easy going and absolutely loves human companionship. She thrives on attention and listens well. She was clearly loved in a former home, and we can't imagine how someone could give her up! Roxie walks well on a leash and simply enjoys exploring nature on a nice, casual stroll. She gets along well with most other dogs, although she prefers the companionship of ... (Read More)similar sized, relatively submissive dogs. Although she'd be fine with the right canine companion, Roxie would be just as content as your only source of attention as she's definitely a 'velcro' dog. She's quickly become a volunteer favorite because of her gentle nature and is now enjoying life in a foster home. She has demonstrated wonderful house manners and loves lounging around on a soft bed or her favorite spot on the couch. She is very adaptive and quickly falls into the routine of a new environment. Roxie is slowly learning to realize what toys are and enjoys soft stuffed animals and squeaky toys! But, more than anything, she just wants to be by your side! Roxie would do best in a home with older children. Roxie does have some minor arthritis in her back end, but that doesn't slow her down a bit! She's quick to jump up and join you on the couch, run after her toys, and chase a ball in the yard! We hope that a loving family will see her and recognize how much this sweet girl has to offer. She deserves a warm, soft bed of her own and a place to call home again. If you give her a chance, we're sure she'll enrich your life more than you could have imagined! If you'd like to meet Roxie, please fill out an application online at www.barkva.org, email adopt@barkva.org, or call 804-449-2275 today! It's a decision you won't regret! (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.
