Animal ID: 3373Francesca (female)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Francesca - a gorgeous 3-year-old, 50 lb gal who appears to be a Rottweiler mix! This gorgeous Rottweiler is looking for a loving family to call her own. She has beautiful markings with deep soulful eyes. She has been slowly introduced to her foster family's larger mellow dogs and has demonstrated tolerance; has even had a few play sessions. She would thrive in a home without small critters like birds, squirrels, small dogs, or cats as she does give a good chase. She likes a treat or two and tends to guard her food, so she could use a few positive training techniques for this. A home with structure, consistent training as well as ... (Read More)focused socialization to help her become a well-adjusted family member would be her ideal home. She is a smart cookie and has shown improvement in leash, crate and training commands, but needs a firm leader who has experience with her breed/large dogs and the patience to help her master those skills. Francesca has medium energy level and loves human interaction. She is currently walked with a martingale collar and 6ft leash. She would do great with at least a couple of 10- to 20-minute daily walks, plus mental stimulation in the form of training and puzzle toys. Even five minutes of practicing obedience skills will give her a feeling of accomplishment. Her foster mom says her best quality is how loving and friendly she is with people. She's a ham! Francesca is up to date on vaccines, and is spayed. (Less)

He barks some when he's playing, but it's not aggression he's just vocal! He is obedient and knows basic commands. Apollo is also very affectionate- he likes to cuddle and will climb in your lap and lay his head on your shoulder for a hug, and loves to do the rottie lean! He's been great with other ... (Read More)people and children who want to pet him. He loves to go on walks and he would thrive in a high activity home where he has lots to do. (Less)

Animal ID: SSRR17-0217-017Lola (female)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, 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)

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

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, 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: SSRR16-0305-025Brinkley (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

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

    Brinkley has a heart as big as his paws. He loves to flop down in your lap and gives big slobbery kisses whenever he gets a chance. He has lots of energy and loves the outdoors. He gets along well with his foster sisters when they don't try to take his toys away. He knows some basic commands and walks fairly well on a leash. We believe that he is 3 12 years old and he currently weighs 83 pounds (he's working on gaining another 10 to 15 pounds). Brinkley was rescued after nearly starving to death, so he guards his food (and toys). He has been working on allowing humans to play with him and be near his food, but he still has some work ... (Read More)to do. With time and love, he will become a wonderful companion for an active person or family with older children. (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)

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.
