Animal ID: SSRR16-1204-072Toby (male)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

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

    Toby is a gorgeous young male who was found as a stray in Virginia. After a short stint in the shelter, he was pulled into SSRR. 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 loves to go on walks, but 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 may need slow intros with other dogs. He is not dog or people ... (Read More)reactive on his walks and should get along fine with other dogs in the household if introduced properly. We aren't sure but we guess he is around two years old, so he still needs a lot of time to run and play. Because of that we are requiring a fenced yard for this active guy! No cats for Toby, his prey drive is too strong. Due to his strength and size we also recommend he go to a home with no small children. (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: SSRR16-0305-025Brinkley (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 

    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. ... (Read More)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)

Rottweiler    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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)

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.

    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.
