Rescue Me ID: 15-07-03-00300Bear (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Bear is super smart, listens great but is VERY protective of me. At 15 months he decided he didn't want my other neutered dog (Pit Bull) to come near me, or my male cat and sometimes even my husband, has since been fixed but I think the damage has been done as far as my two dogs getting along and I'm afraid one will be terribly hurt. This isn't fair to either dog. He is great with my teenage boys but I wouldn't recommend young children. Bear would be GREAT for a single women looking for a very protective LOVING dog!!!

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet adorable Hogan the Nottweiler. This little guy is cute as can be and full of energy. He loves to play and is very social. He jumps in out and over to get into the little kiddie pool. Hogan is fond of balls and anything he can play tug with. He has large and small dogs in his foster home as well as cats. Hogan will chase the kitties if they run and has gotten tagged on his nose a couple times, which has not slowed him down. He doesn't have a mean bone in him. Hogan is potty trained as long as he's on a schedule and or you listen to him tell you it's time to go out. He's quiet in his crate and does need a yummy treat to ... (Read More)encourage him to go in on his own. Hogan is still a juvenile and likes to chew on things, so we recommend crating him when no one is home and to watch what he puts in his mouth. When he runs around the yard and plays, he'll remind you of a jack rabbit. He has very good agility and is super fast. He does like to mouth things, including your hand, but it's not out of meanness and it's not hard. He gets redirected when he does these playful attempts at getting his foster family's attention. He loves to chew on his foster sibling's body parts and when they tell him enough is enough, he lays on his back and is non- confrontational. He has stood for his bath given by his 13 year old human foster sister and promptly rolls after she finishes bathing him. He loves attention and will seek it, but may act like he doesn't want to be bothered and walk away from his humans attempts at petting. Hogan is often found on his human foster sister's bed, hanging out with her while she's watching TV or doing homework. He's also found himself right at home laying on the sofa. He thinks it is a game when you tell him to 'come' and if you step towards him, Hogan will run in the opposite direction and then look at you as if to say, 'come on and catch me.' This guy has the perfect temperament for home with another dog, cat and older kids that won't be frightened by him playfully mouthing your body parts. (Less)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    We originally thought Cabby was a Shepherd/Rottie mix, but have now revised to description to Beagle/Rottie as she has stayed compact and we don't anticipate she will grow much more than she has! Cabby is a great pup! Gets along beautifully with both small, big & even old dogs. She is very smart & housetrained & will even lie down quietly while her foster family eats their meals. Cabby has a good healthy appetite & does not resource guard. She does great wih our foster's10yo son & his friends & will shower them with kisses and tail wags and loves to roll over for them to rub her tummy. She loves to play ball and is getting really great at ... (Read More)fetch & return. Cabby is very well behaved in the house and sleeps in her foster mom and dad's bedroom at night. She would thrive with a packmate to share her furever home with. Cabby walks well on a leash but needs a halter as she has a sensitive trachea. Cabby knows sit, lie down & heel. We are working on stay & give paw. Cabby would be a fast learner in a training class & also would give her more opportunities to bond with her family. Cabby can only go to a home with children 7 and up. Six foot fence required. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-03-00211Roxy (female)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    Roxy is a very loving dog who was rescued from an animal shelter. She must have been abused at one time, because we have some behavior issues in certain situations. She loves everyone, but when a child yells, runs or cries - she jumps up, barks, and nips. She just doesn't know what to do with herself. I have an 8 year old who is very excitable and this is just not worth the risk of an accidental bite or injury to him or his friends. In addition, being held down by someone freaks her out completely. I have to get her sedated to get her nails clipped and shots at the vet. Even with that, she is a nervous wreck and it is very traumatic ... (Read More)for her at this point. Roxy gets along well with other animals, but naturally chases cats. I only put doesn't get along with cats because my older cats rejected her chasing and just peed all over the house in rebellion. They currently live in the basement because of it. The younger cat handles her fine - and she doesn't try to eat cats or anything! As far as other dogs - she does fine when introduced in a neutral environment. When another dog steps on her territory (our house or yard), she becomes a very good guard dog. It makes our house safe, but MIGHT be an issue if you already own a dog. Roxy needs love, time, space, regular walks, consistent training and a no small children environment. I just can't offer her that. She already has passed beginner obedience training and is going into a new class soon. I am also talking to a behaviorist to see what else can be done to help her and help make her more adoptable. Unfortunately, I discovered too late that once they are abused, those symptoms never quite go away. Thank you for reading all this - I hope you would like to meet Roxy soon! (Less)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sasha was abandoned by her owners and the people that were taking care of her had to get rid of her due to a change in their lease which no longer allowed pets. Sasha is estimated to be between 4 and 5 years old. She's very sweet needs to be fed separately from others as she has food aggression with other dogs due to she was starved to death prior to the people that had her getting her. If interested contact me for more info.

Health: Spayed 

    This is Lady, she was given up along with her sister (Baby who is also up for adoption) by her owners for personal reasons. She is now 8 years old and still very active. She has been living with her foster home since February 2013 and is easy to live with. She's spayed and kennel & house trained. She does have a severe overbite; it doesn't effect her quality of life or eating, but it does cause her to drool when finished drinking. She loves the attention of humans as well as running in the yard. She does have a habit and likes to dig, and she will test the security of her fence if given the chance. Lady is very bonded to her sister Baby so ... (Read More)THEY MUST BE ADOPTED TOGETHER or not at all. (Less)

    Baby was given up by her owners (along with her sister Lady, also up for adoption), and has been living with her foster family since February 2013.

She's just like her sister. She has a severe overbite and drools a lot after drinking. She also shares the same habit of digging in the yard trying to get the moles. Baby is kennel and house trained.

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.

lnteresting Rottweiler Trivia Low-Cost Virginia Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Rottweilers were used to herd cattle for the Roman Legion so the soldiers would have meat. The Rottweiler is named after the German town of Rottweil. Rottweilers nearly became extinct in the nineteenth century.
