Cortez's Info...

Cortez's Story...
Cortez is a 10 month old male that looks to be mostly, if not 100%, Rottweiler. We claimed him from the Austin City dog pound. Animal control officers picked him up running loose in the City and placed Cortez into the city dog Pound. No owner showed up to claim him, so we took him into our Humane Society shelter. Cortez weighed 86 pounds at the time of his neuter on 4/22/08. He has an awesome personality! He acts very puppyish and can be a little on the submissive side. He's been very sweet with all our volunteers. In our Shelter environment, we cannot draw conclusions as to whether he is housetrained or not - expect that he is NOT housetrained. We do not think it would be wise to expect Cortez to be an outdoor dog or a farm dog. He will thrive as an indoor, family pet. Cortez' adoption fee is $95. We utilize a short adoption application form to assess compatibility between dogs and prospective homes. This form can be e-mailed to you upon request. If you have any other questions, please send us an e-mail (no phone calls please). Thanks for looking at Cortez!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cortez, a Austin Rottweiler dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rottweiler for sale in Austin, or seeking a Rottweiler dog from a breeder in Austin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Austin already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Austin breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rottweiler breeders who help with Rottweiler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
