Abe's Story...
The first thing you will notice about Abe is his size, roughly 100 lbs! The next thing that stands out about this handsome boy is his gentle nature. Abe is an approximately 7 year old Rottie mix. He is fully vetted with a microchip. Abe is eager to please, following the commands, sit, lay down and stay. When he is comfortable, he loves to roll over on his back and receive big belly rubs! He is relatively new to living in a house, so he needs reminders when it comes to furniture and trash cans. Abe loves to show off his fetch skills, but needs a little work on the “drop” command…..he thinks we mean to drop himself and will plop to the ground with the ball in his mouth! Abe gets along with other larger dogs, after a proper introduction. Abe is gentle with children, but needs reminders to resist giving kisses. Abe loves the outdoors, so would best thrive in a house with a yard, perfect for sunbathing. Abe is doing a great job learning how to walk on a leash, though his size makes it easy for him to pull. He is very responsive to corrections. Abe loves to get out for walks around the neighborhood, and does best with shorter walks, he has a lot of weight to carry!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Nashville 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 Nashville 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Nashville paves the way for another one to be saved.
