|Rescue Me ID: 16-10-20-00539Lucky (female)|
Lucky is such a sweetheart! Her mama was a 140lb AKC Rottie and her dad was a AKC Walker Coonhound. She is 3 years old and about 85lbs. She loves everyone she has come into contact with and is great with my cats also although if she is unsure if it is my cats coming on the porch she will bark. I am only trying to find her a great home with someone strong enough to play with her and give her room to run. My husband and I are both disabled and she is just too strong for us. She knows basic commands such as sit, down,shake, speak, will nose her treat bag to get which treat she wants, sleeps in bed with us, stays outside on a leash, is spayed and microchipped as well as being spoiled rotten! She will m ake someone younger an awesome best friend!And although friendly, she is an awesome guard dog! We are in SWVA (Less)

|Animal ID: SSRR16-0305-025Brinkley (male)|
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 to do. With time and love, he will become a wonderful companion for an active person or family with older children. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-10-15-00385Ava (female)|
Ava is a very sweet, lovable and goofy rottweiler. She is a 65lb, 7 year young Southern farm girl who is currently living in the suburbs of Northern Virginia. She has a 6.5 year old male rottweiler who she is roommates with and gets along great with him. Ava has met a couple large dogs in our neighborhood and has done well with them. No small dogs, cats, female dogs or small farm animals for this girl. Ava has also met quite a few children, both in our neighborhood as well as on our hiking adventures, and she, at first, will be timid but with encouragement she warms up quickly and is happy to get attention. New situations and people can be a little overwhelming but Ava is able to work with her environment and adapt to it. Ava walks wonderfully on a leash and rides well in the car! She loves going on walks and hikes, wrestling with her foster brother or just hanging out on the sofa with her human. When inside, Ava is a low key, couch potato and she is either napping or following me everywhere. She really LOVES being around her human. When I first started fostering Ava she would counter surf but accepts correction and has not done it since our first week together. To prevent any temptations all food should be kept out of her reach. She knows to stay out of the kitchen while I am cooking and if she forgets a simple command of 'out of the kitchen' will remind her of where she needs to be. Ava has no food aggression and is fed on the opposite wall of my male. She knows the command, 'go to your bowl', which is very handy when feeding multiple dogs, and will go stand (or twirl around in excitement) by her feeding station. She is very treat motivated therefore easily trained. I am able to take toys away from her and she has not displayed any resource guarding behavior with me. She will not let my male take toys from her but does not react aggressively if he is near her when she is playing. She will just take her toy elsewhere. Ava is house-trained and crate-trained. She spends her days in the crate while I am at work only because my male can be grumpy. I have gated her for short periods of time in a small room off of my kitchen, when I am out running errands, but that has been a little overwhelming for her. She will need a slow transition to being allowed free reign of the house when no one is home. She knows basic commands such as 'sit', 'stay' and 'come'. When Ava gets very excited she will jump up on you but will take correction very well. She has made marked improvements since coming into our home and this behavior has decreased. Ava is an expert cuddler and lives to snuggle up to you on the sofa or the bed and I often times find myself using her as a pillow. She allows me to handle her ears, mouth, paws and all over her body with absolutely no issues. I am able to brush her as well as trim her nails with ease. If you would like to give Ava her furever home please fill out an adoption application! (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-09-13-00605Shakespeare (male)|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with kids. Shakespeare's Story... Just look at that face! Shakespeare is a young Rottweiler/Hound mix (maybe?). He is house trained, and gets along with the other dogs in his foster home (a meet a greet with other dogs in recommended), and very friendly with people. All dogs are spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption. Several have received additional medical care as well. The standard adoption donation is $175.00. However, the donation can easily be adjusted for seniors and dogs with special needs. It may also be slightly higher for young, purebred dogs. The adoption donation helps us provide care for the foster dogs. We ask potential adopters to fill out a short application at www.augustadogadoptions.org. (Less)

|Animal ID: SSRR16-0415-044-2Hazel (female)|
Hazel came to SSRR from Richmond where she was picked up as a stray. She had an upper respiratory infection, ear infection and a large mammary tumor. Her fur was gray from dirt and grime. After being in her foster home for several months Hazel has blossomed to a healthy and happy dog. Hazel is completely housebroken, crate-trained and has knowledge of basic commands such as 'come', 'stay', 'sit' and 'down'. She does take longer than normal to go into a sit and down position due to a torn ACL which she is taking anti inflammatory and pain medication for. This is something that Hazel will need to be on for the remainder of her life. Hazel is now being fostered in a Northern Virginia suburb where she lives with a 7 year old rottweiler brother. Hazel is estimated to be about 3-4 years old and weighs in at 90lbs. She would do best as an only dog or with a laid back male her size or larger. No small dogs, female dogs or cats. Hazel has met other male dogs in our neighborhood and has done well as long as introductions are slow and they respect her space. Hazel loves car rides and is learning to be a good and calm passenger. She has met many children in our neighborhood, ranging from 3 years to 12 years old, and has done very well with them. I recommend a home for her that has children 10 and up. She had some resource guarding issues with toys and high value treats when she first came to me but now that she has gained trust she has gotten better with sharing those with me. She loves to bring you toys so you can throw them for her - fetch is her favorite game! Hazel walks well with a gentle leader harness but will pull if she sees something she wants to investigate. Hazel's favorite thing to do is to lay and cuddle with her human - she is a true velcro dog. She also enjoys getting a bath and a soapy massage. She will let you clean her ears and trim her nails. She doesn't like her teeth to be brushed but will be fine if you use a dental spray as long as she can lay her head in your lap! Hazel is a special needs dog and will need a special owner to make sure that she receives proper medical care. She came into our rescue with a mammary tumor which was removed and biopsied and came back as a low grade cancer to which vets are cautiously optimistic of a good prognosis. She shuffles slightly when she walks due to some mild hip dysplasia but that does not stop her from chasing squirrels and rabbits in the yard with her Rottie brother. Hazel is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and has had a dental cleaning. If you would like to bring Hazel home please fill out an Adoption Application. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 16-08-22-00425Bella (female)|
Bella has been with the family for five years now and is not adjusting to our 1 year old very well. She has quite of bit of anxiety and stress and we feel as though it is not good for her health. We are looking for the right home to give her to. She is an amazing companion and loves to snuggle. We hate to lose a member of our family but the stress with her and the unsure ness of our toddler is not working out. Serious inquiries only please. A serious screening will be conducted prior to re-homing.

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