 . Amber .  . Amber .  . Amber .
  • Rottweiler
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Our sweet Amber is a very timid girl who takes a while to trust. It is pretty obvious that someone abused her prior to her rescue. Amber has 2 sides. The first side she shows is the frightened girl who needs to assess if you are safe and won’t hurt her. The other side is a bouncy, playful, delightful girl who wants to do no wrong and lives to please you. Perfectly house trained, perfectly crate trained, great with all the other dogs in her foster home, excellent house manners…that’s Amber. Amber needs to be allowed to size things up and be the initiator of contact at her own pace and comfort level when in a new situation. Once she feels it’s safe, she offers the sweetest, most gentle kisses to your hand. Amber is fragile from her history and may always be frightened in new situations or with new people. She would thrive in a quiet home in which there is another dog as a companion for her and from whom she can draw confidence. Amber does not do well living in a home with males; male visitors are ok because she can avoid them.If you are that special person for this special girl, contact for an application is Beth at kaya1227@comcast.net

Maggie is a 1-2 year old ‘Fluffweiler’.Maggie is a high energy girl who loves to play, play, play. She can also be dominant in her play with other dogs and prefers to be the only dog so she can soak up all the attention. Maggie is a darling and has demonstrated great manners in the home.

Maggie is a pretty easy dog to live with. She knows basic obedience and is house trained. She is fine with small and big kids. She does not jump on the kids and rarely jumps on adults. Maggie likes to play ball and is a fun dog in general. She will chase cats and small animals that run. Maggie requires a fenced in yard due to her love of the chase. She will need exercise daily such as a long walk/ run and ball or Frisbee throwing in the yard but she is also great at just hanging out quietly in the house with her family..

Maggie is a shadow dog and will be next to you in every room you go to. Wherever I am she is laying close by. She will go outside and play by herself for a little while but you will hear her scratch at the door to come in when she wants company.

Overall Maggie is a great dog, good with people as well as kids. Very friendly and could be a Therapy Dog if trained. For a first time dog family she could work since she is easy to live with but I would highly recommend a training class to teach her and help you learn how dogs learn and think. Usually Rottweilers in general are not good matches for first time dog owners but Maggie is very gentle and easy to train. She listens well to voice command and tone.

Rodney is a real joy for the experienced Rottie lover! 2 years old, this handsome boy knows Sit, Down, Paw, Stay, Leave it, and Back. He’s highly trainable and very food motivated. Rodney is a strong boy and requires daily exercise. He is the perfect dog for a jogger. Rodney would really love a job. With exercise or a job, Rodney is a calm boy who knows how to chill while you watch TV. He is also a cuddler. He loves to be with his person, and is also crate trained and house broken. If allowed, he can be very dominant which is where the need for tiring him out comes in! We recommend older children only, at least 12 years old.

Rodney is good with other dogs with proper introductions, but best with females. He plays hard. Once he has established a rapport with new dogs, he is a good pack member. He has participated in pack walks with his pack, on and off leash, and been at dog parks, but again, attention needs to be paid to how other dogs relate to him. Dogs rushing at him won’t have a favorable response. He has intimidating behaviors, and won’t back down if feeling challenged by a dog without supervision and direction from his person. Rodney is not a naturally aggressive dog, but will react mostly from things or situations he fears. If you have the experience and environment for this boy, contact Beth for an application at kaya1227@comcast.net

Max is a 7 year old handsome boy who thinks he’s about 2 or 3! Poor Max was surrendered to the shelter because of an infected, swollen toe. With his paw wrapped in a blood soaked towel, and unable to use the leg, he was abandoned by his ‘family’. After diagnosing him with squamous cell, our vet did surgery on the toe and Max now is ready to find a home!

Max sure has some pep in his step. Max is really good at bringing his toy back and letting it go so you can throw it again. Max is playful, sweet, laid back, and just plain awesome. Max is a loving boy who is a knockout! It’s hard to believe he’s really 7 as shared by his ‘family’. Contact for an application is Beth at kaya1227@comcast.net

  • Special Needs
Freedom had a horrid past. She lived outside tied to a car battery, received no care or attention, and was starved… almost to death. She gained close to 40 pounds since rescued. We have worked hard to make her healthy and it shows. She is a beautiful girl. Freedom is a leaner and loves to be loved. She is arthritic but able to navigate and do steps. She is on Rimadyl and Dasuquan to help make her comfortable. Freedom has not ever lived in a home. She went from living in a filthy yard to remaining inpatient at a veterinary hospital and is now in a kennel due to not having a foster home for her. She’s a well-behaved girl and keeps her kennel clean leading us to believe she’d be easily housebroken. Due to her past long term starvation, she also shows food guarding behaviors so no children under 12.

 . Rock .  . Rock .  . Rock .
  • Rottweiler
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Rock
Rock has medium energy and enjoys playing and romping. He gets along well with large dogs and cats. I have not had him with small dogs. Rock does well with children about 9 and older. I have not had him around smaller children but he is gentle. He would be best in a home with older children and other companion dogs as he does bond to the dogs in the pack and follows their lead. He bonds quickly to women but is not as trusting with men; it can take several weeks of patient reassurance to build a long term bond with a man. He responds to alpha pack leadership and has come to understand his place in the pack; he is middle of the pack with a passive alpha tendency. He will react to high energy dogs and has a tendency to “correct” their behavior. He currently leans more towards flight vs. fight due to habits created from long term abuse. He will look for reassurance when he is uncertain but if guided and encouraged he will easily follow direction. He respects authority and correction that is kind but firm. Yelling or sudden arm movement or grabbing his collar without warning etc. will put him in flight mode, he will protect himself if he feels threatened or cornered without an escape route. He needs consistency and structure in a routine that stays the same. The more stable the environment the easier it is to introduce him to something new. If there is a change he looks for reassurance, example: Rock typically sleeps on the larger orthopedic dog bed in the bedroom. There are nights when Dozer gets on this bed first and Rock will pace until he figures out what to do or where to lie down. Eventually he will figure it out and it is important to allow this to happen quietly then praise him when he finally settles.
Rock will stay near his pack leader at all times and will follow him/her anywhere they go if allowed., he responds to quiet conversation and enjoys being petted. Rock is comfortable in a crate and will go in when asked to “kennel”. Structure and routine are keys to maintaining stable healthy relationship with Rock.
I initially walked him on leash in the yard to train him to boundaries. He doesn’t pull and even when he sees dogs in other yards he doesn’t get aggressive or run out of yard. He was good with my neighbor’s golden retrievers and the whole family, husband, wife and 2 young girls, 9 & 12 yrs old. We pack walk together on our 5 acres without a leash. Our yard is not currently fenced and Rock understands the boundaries without issue.
Daily routine:
Rock eats 5 cups of Annamaet grain free dog food a day split between breakfast and dinner. Regular feeding times as a part of a daily routine are important. Currently Rock is walked first thing in the morning followed by breakfast. Rock has a specific place he sits and waits for his food. Once he eats he is not allowed to eat out of any other dog bowls. He follows this rule well. After all our dogs have finished eating they are given a treat. Treats are usually charcoal/peppermint bones, milk bones or small chew treats. Rock also eats his treat in his designated spot. Rock can resource guard, He will growl or show his teeth when eating if he feels threatened. Once Rock understands the routine and feels safe and trusts his pack leader he eats calmly and follows the routine. The routine is what establishes trust and safety and it is important to maintain. Rock walks with his pack about an hour after breakfast and then spends the morning with my Husband after I leave for work. My Husband leaves for work about 2 pm. Rock is let out for a pack walk before being crated for a few hours. Once I am home in the early evening I take the dogs out for a pack walk before feeding them dinner. We follow the exact same routine at dinner. After dinner the pack will go outside for a while to play or sit on the patio. We also hang in the family room together at night and each dog has his/her spot to lie down and relax and again routine is key to relaxation. We all go out for a walk once more before we go to bed and all dogs have established areas of sleeping and they will all wait for me to get in bed before they find their designated spot for the evening. My Husband gets in about 2am. The dogs will go down to greet him and they will go outside and then they come back upstairs, back to their sleeping spots and that’s that for the night. Rock knows the following commands:
Come
Sit
Down
Give me your paw
Kennel
Rock is responsive to hand gestures and firm but gentle pack leadership. Rock talks a lot (growls) through most of his activities.
Rock does not seem to mind the rain however loud thunder will at times cause him to look for reassurance. I do not pet him while he is unsure. I allow him to lie next to me and relax. Once he relaxes everything continues as normal.
Notes: Rock is best if his food is placed gently down in front of him and he is left to eat without issue. It is not a good idea to take his food away from him or tease him in any way. This will frighten him and cause him to guard his food. He may also guard the water bowl but will back away if asked. He tolerates a dog or human standing near the water bowl and will wait for other animals to finish drinking before he drinks although he doesn’t like to share the water bowl. The rest of the pack may drink two or three at a time.
Rock will sit for a treat and take a treat “easy” if asked. Rock likes carrots as well as regular dog treats.
Rock has a gentle spirit and is a calm affectionate dog. He responds to the overall mood of the pack leader. He is a good boy and once he respects the pack leader he easily accepts correction if needed without any issue what so ever. The key is stability in an environment that is calm and structured.
