Rescue Me ID: 16-09-13-00605Shakespeare (male)

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered 

    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 ...

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 meds for. This is something that Hazel will need to be on for the remainder of her life and can ... (Read More)cost anywhere from $60-$80/mo. SSRR will work with an approved adopter on getting Hazel TTA surgery for her torn ACL which will eliminate the need for her daily medication. 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 loves car rides and is learning to be a good and calm passenger. She is currently harnessed in the backseat so that way she won't try to co-pilot with me. 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 due to some previous resource guarding issues with toys and high value treats. Hazel walks well with a gentle leader harness but will pull if she sees something she wants to investigate. She loves to bring you toys so you can throw them for her. 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: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Abused/Neglected 

    Kane is a good boy but he was abused when he was younger. We took him in and have worked with him, but he has bitten 2 people. We have not been able to figure out what the trigger is as of yet. He has snapped at 3 people but we were able to stop two of them. The last person he bit was done in a playful manner, but he is a strong boy and it broke the skin. I love him to death but I cannot put the time into figuring out what causes him to snap at people. Please do not contact me if you are not serious about taking the time with him. He is awesome and goes with me everywhere.

Rottweiler Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Champ is a 50 lb happy go lucky neutered Rottweiler mix that is just over a year old. He came to SSRR in rough shape and with a severe skin infection after he became a favorite of shelter workers who saw his wonderful personality despite his condition. Champ is well on his way to recovery, is currently being treated for heartworms and is looking for a home of his own. He is always happy and has not met a stranger yet. He is currently living in a home with many other dogs of both sexes from Mastiffs to Rottweilers to Whippets. He takes everything in stride and gets along with everyone. He currently does not live with cats, so a home ... (Read More)with cats is not recommended. His outgoing personality leads us to believe that he would be good with older children that have been taught how to interact with dogs properly and be respectful with a medium size dog. If you are looking for a friendly, very happy, interactive fellow that will bring a smile to your face, Champ is your guy! (Less)

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.

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.
