DODGE NEEDS AN EXPERIENCED HOME THAT HAS PREVIOUSLY LIVED WITH AND SCHOOLED A LARGE DOG WHO, IF ALLOWED, WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. HE IS A GREAT DOG IN THE RIGHT HANDS.
This handsome hunk is Dodge, a 2 year old Purebred Rottie. Dodge was surrendered to Kodi's Club due to a new baby in the home and needs some experienced handling to help him transition to his new life. Dodge is loving and loyal and thrives on affection; but you'll need to earn his love! Dodge does not warm up to people quickly. Don't expect Dodge to flirt with your friends or offer his affection to just anyone. He's had a rough past and prefers slow intros to be sure people are worthy of his trust. And this takes time, patience, understanding, and a structure he can rely on. Just as important is to watch his signals that he's had enough and needs to be left alone. He's a dog who prefers to go in his crate in another room if you have company. Dodge is ready to settle down into a quiet life. He's not a party animal and doesn't appreciate loud busy environments. He doesn't enjoy long walks and hikes. He's more of the stay in and watch a movie sort. Good news is he's not picky- you pick the movie and the snacks and he'll never complain (though he does like to cuddle so be prepared).
Ideally Dodge would like to be an only dog and not share your attention. He's very pushy and dominant with other dogs, male and female. He does have a strong prey drive. Very targeted in fact. He will require a sturdy fenced yard where he can romp and play fetch to burn off energy, At this point in his life Dodge isn't ready for kids so we are looking for an adult only home that will understand Dodge's preference for being a home body. Large dog or training experience a must!
