Lizzy is now eating 3-4 cups a day and is putting on some weight. She has lots of energy and is now waiting for her furever home to love on her. Lizzy came into rescue on 2-5-18. She is just the sweetest girl and is very underweight. She was at the shelter for 6 months and shared a 4x4 kennel with 7 other dogs, so obviously is good with other dogs. She jumped on her bed, curled in a tight circle as she was used to. Now she sprawls out in comfort in front of her heater, enjoying the room and freedom. She has been destressing and sleeping a lot. She is getting fed 4 times a day as she is very thin so are reintroducing her slowly, she is starting to eat more as the week has progressed. She just wants someone to love on her.

More About Rottweiler Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Rottweiler-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 225.00. Hi, I am Neon and I love life. I am an active girl. I started out in CA as a stray. Somehow, I gravitated to an animal shelter and when they found me outside they wanted to catch me. I was afraid, but once they picked up a ball, I was theirs. I then got transferred to a shelter in ID where they adopted me out, but I was immediately taken to Petco and I was afraid and shut down, so the shelter had to come get me. The shelter, then decided I would do best in rescue. While waiting for transport, I did live in a house with another dog and did well, but I didn't want the other dog to play with my toys. Neon now loves to be loved on and it is better than balls. She lies down, rolls over for her loving, squints her eyes and smiles, if you go to stop, she puts her front feet around your hand. She looks like a little meerkat. I am also rubbing her hind end and she is starting to cha-cha. She is a very sweet girl, with the happiest butt and nub I have ever seen. Neon is a very happy girl and LOVES to play with balls. She always presents herself with a toy and wants you to play with her, fetch is her game. She is treat motivated, but does not like other dogs to be thinking about taking her toys, but she no longer barks at them so is learning.

      Breed: Rottweiler
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler (short coat). Adoption Fee: 250.00. I have been in rescue awhile and don't know why. Mom says beauty is only skin deep and just because I don't have that “traditional” Rottie look, people are passing me by. If they met me and my inner beauty, I would have a home today. While my Mom says I am doing great with other dogs, she would like to see me in a home all my own so I can give all my love, but I may be OK sharing that with a female, would have to meet her first. I have lost 15 pounds a must say I do look good. My thyroid levels are now normal. Hi, I'm Ranger. I was picked up as a stray and apparently had been on the streets for awhile. When they picked me up, I had kids crawling all over me. I am a very happy boy that loves everyone, even children. I love my foster Mom's grand kids, they like to chase me and that is fun and when they call, I come running to them, I just have to slow down enough as to not bowl them over with my exuberance. Since I had been a stray, I wasn't real keen on other dogs, but my foster Mom has taught me to have manners and if I forget, all she has to say is “Ranger” and I remember to be nice. (Honestly, I don't do anything but stare, then give a few barks, but she says that is NOT appropriate). I am a very happy boy and smile all the time. I love to get close and cuddle, have even learned to kiss. I am a favorite at the vets and everyone says I am adorable. I do have a weight problem, but my thyroid pills are helping and Mom says they are cheap. I love rolling around in the grass on my back with my legs wiggling straight in the air--makes my Mom laugh.

      Breed: Rottweiler
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Cane Corso Mastiff (short coat). This dog is NOT in the care of Big Sky Rottweiler Rescue, he is being listed as a courtesy to get more adoption exposure. Please contact Filip at the shelter contact info below. April 20 This boy has stolen the hearts of two of Big Sky Rottweiler Volunteers. They say he is such a neat dog that will do anything to please so he can be loved. He is treat motivated which has been making his progress so much easier. He is much calmer. Has his sit, sit/stay and down almost mastered. They are still walking him on a long line so that he is more comfortable with his walks, but when brought into the busy shelter and on a short lead, listens well. April 13 Steve has been walking Cope every day. Steve gave him extra dog food yesterday, along with many nutritious snacks. Despite how hungry he is, he’s not food aggressive. Steve had his hand in the dog bowl with the food and Cope could’ve cared less. Cope did his very first volunteer down. He is ready to jet out of there, but the fact he went down brought tears to our eyes. We took him back to a full shelter with crazed dogs across and beside him. He sat in the kennel like a good boy. He does not bark or growl like many of the other dogs who hit their front panel. April 10 Our Big Sky Volunteers continue to work with Cope and he has improved tremendously. Today was Steve’s first day by himself. Last weekend I had Steve enter the kennel and get Cope’s collar on and bring him out both days. Today, Steve said that Cope was wiggling and excited to see him. Steve was in the kennel getting Cope ready and someone Steve knew came up to the kennel. This was not a volunteer and was a stranger to Cope. Cope woofed once, the same as he did when he first saw Steve…it is an announcement woof, like “I haven’t seen you before and you are new.” Steve told him it was ok, had him sit, and spoke to the fellow through the kennel panel. Cope had no issues. This is very good news. When Steve returned to the shelter from their walk, the outside door to the kennels was locked. Steve had to go through the office and it was busy today. He said there were six people, along with a dog on a leash, and a barking dog behind a closed door. He and Cope meandered through the group with no problems. At the entryway into the kennels, Steve stopped. With no instruction, Cope sat down. Steve gave him a few boiled eggs, chicken, steak, and a stick of cheese today. Cope continues to be a good boy. April 7 More steak bites today and a boiled egg. Cope looks like he lost more weight. I tossed snowballs for him and he liked that. Doesn’t appear he has ever been played with. He cannot handle a heavy handed owner. He has needed limited, light correction with a chain collar (not prong) and he gets it. I think about how easily he turned away from the parking lot lady with timing & correct read on dog. I’m amazed at how tender & sensitive he is. April 4 update We took a break to give Cope some relief in middle of week. He had a growling, barking dog next to his kennel and did not react at all to all the room chaos as I put his collar on. Walked out of kennel area like a champ. It was another good interaction with him. Is doing well with call backs on long line. Went on his own to Steve for several good body rubs today. I’m not seeing any negative behaviors from him yet, but we are walking him in neutral territory. His demeanor in a very active shelter is wonderful. Despite incredible distraction, I can get him to sit at door entrances with encouraging prompts and look to me for further direction. He is a very strong, untrained boy that overall seems pretty happy and just wants to please. It is easy to take the time from our schedules to provide him relief. He is a good boy. The time we spend with this dog just makes him better and that is our goal. The walks are helping with stress level. He returns to the shelter much calmer. Hopefully someone will come along and has the ability to put the training on him so he can live a good, loved life. April 1 Update No pulling, and really likes the whole possibility of reward. Little correction was needed today. Working on him not jumping up on the walker. He remembered me and greated me with kisses and a paw out to shake We spent some Easter with Cope today. Steve did well with him. Steve is a big guy at 6’2 and 260...initially Cope was a little wary of him, but warmed right up to him with plenty of steak pieces. Look how food driven he is. This is what one of our volunteers said during an evalutaion of him. I met Copenhagen (Cope) today. He was neutered on Thursday. The director, Filip, brought Cope out of his kennel and into the main lobby with him wiggling his butt and very interested in his surroundings. I had high value treats on me and he cuddled up to me instantly. We went into a side room, sat down, and Filip told me what he knew. Cope settled down by me and did not appear distressed. It appears to be a mother-daughter ownership. The older woman had the dog for about a year and confirmed that Cope is mixed rottweiler with cane corso. She gave him to her daughter, who had him for one month, and then surrendered him to the shelter saying she could no longer have a dog. At that time, Cope had crashed through a house window, but the daughter said she didn't know why. There were no other incidents reported to Filip. Cope was in the shelter two weeks, handled by various shelter volunteers, male and female, with no incident. He has had no confrontations with the other dogs. Filip found a male foster to take Cope and I spoke to the foster about his two weeks there. The foster has a girlfriend, 12 yoa daughter, two indoor cats and livestock. Cope cuddled and had no issues or signs of aggression in the house. The foster and his girlfriend took Cope to Murdochs (farm store) twice. They placed an e-collar on Cope, went inside, did a meet & greet with the cashier, and walked around. While the foster was looking at merchandise, a toddler quickly came around the corner and went right up to Cope, placing his hand on Cope's muzzle. Cope did not react and the couple left. The next day they returned to Murdochs. Same young male cashier that had petted Cope the day before came around the counter, took his hat off, and reached out to pet him. Cope, with no warning, went into attack mode. The foster's girlfriend had the dog's lead, and with good strength was able to pull him away before he bit the cashier. The foster applied the e-collar shock and it did not deter Cope's behavior. Later that week, the foster took the dog out with him to see the lambs. The dog was not on a lead. The lambs ran and Cope went after one and grabbed its throat. The foster pried his jaws open and pulled him off. The dog never tried to bite the foster. The lamb survived. The final incident came when male friends came over to the house and Cope reacted aggressively, not letting the men in. The foster could not control him. Cope went back to the shelter. The foster now knows he did not have the skills to handle him. He said that Cope was very loveable toward him despite the mishandlings. As FIlip told me the story, several volunteers that Cope knew came in and out of the room and he wagged his butt and went to greet them. My friend and I then took Cope on an hour walk with a long lead. He is very smart and with gentle lead correction, quickly learned not to pull. He responded better to physical signals and voice than to voice alone. He has no manners, but knew sit, and learned to shake very quickly. He is very food driven and took treats gently. He was eager to please, and leaned into me for several good body rubs. When we returned to the shelter there was a woman standing in the parking lot watching us. My friend went ahead and the woman stopped her saying the dog was too much for anyone to handle and I shouldn't be handling him. The woman was loud and pointed at us. Cope began to bristle and I could see he was agitated, but no barking or growling. I turned around walking the other direction. He followed me and did not attempt to lunge or go back towards her. My friend asked the woman to leave and we reached the shelter without incident. The woman was a volunteer at the shelter and Filip was advised of Cope's reaction to her from a distance. I asked Filip about his gut feeling regarding Cope. He felt a specific person had to have Cope with knowledgeable handling skills and understanding of liability. He has taken him off the adoption list and hopes he can find a rescue or law enforcement agency to take him. He is a lot of dog and two years old. He is an untrained, unsocialized dog that gave great kisses. If you are interested in this boy and have knowledge and skills for this breed, contact the information below. This dog will not go to just anyone as he will not be set up to fail. Filip Panusz Shelter Director Mission Valley Animal Shelter P.O.

      Breed: Rottweiler
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. She’s in the purple collar. Here’s what the owner said about her: This is Daisy, she is 2 1/2 years old. I have had her since she was a baby, and she is a really good dog despite some problems. She is very hyper and energetic. She LOVES to play ball with her yellow tennis ball. She loves to run around and get treats. She does pretty good inside the house other than getting into the garbage from time to time. She is not a barker, she will only bark when she is trying to let you know something is going on. 2 of her main issues is she does not like smaller dogs. I’m not sure where this came from but she has tried to attack several small dogs including our pit bull when we first got her as a puppy. She is usually fine with the bigger ones, but the little ones for some reason she does not do well with. The second thing is she absolutely does not like kids. We had one close call with her and my friends toddler and one other episode just recently. We don’t know why she is this way, and it may be something that can be worked out. But neither one of us know how to fix this issue and with a baby of our own due any day now, we have just decided that it is not a risk we are willing to take with out newborn. It is a very serious thing and our biggest hope is that we can give her to someone that will take this as seriously as we do so there are no babies or kids that end up hurt by negligent people. She has been a part of our family for a long time and we just hope she can find a home that is suited well for her and most of all, love her. We are deeply saddened to see her go.
