 Abby is the most cuddly, snuggly dog I have ever had. She literally makes happy noises when she gets the persuasion to join you on the couch or bed for a cuddle sesh. She even prefers to be headfirst under the covers.   If she can't cuddle with someone she will find the softest/squishiest thing in the room to lie on. Cuddling and playing with her toys are close runners up to her favorite thing - food. She jumps out of bed in the morning, her whole body wagging and wiggling with excitement, and dances all the way to her bowl. After breakfast, she quickly slips back to her bed where you will always find her curled up like a donut.     She will need an experienced handler to help her work out a few quirks. She is very motivated to please but also easily excited and of course has a touch of stubborn. Her chase instinct is very strong so she can only be walked by someone who can manage that. She is medium-high energy.     Abby likes other dogs but probably has not been well socialized. She can get overly excited/not read cues well. However, she can also do very well with close supervision. (We dog sat a submissive female lab/pit mix and they even shared beds). Hopefully, this is something Abby can master with time.     She knows heal, sit, lie down, drop it, leave it, off, come, wait, move, ok, go to bed...and is crate trained. She is indifferent to kids- anyone who will play with her gets her approval. Because she is a lover and not a fighter, she is nervous around arguing/ horseplay and may let you know with some assertive barking. She will also let you know if anyone is coming in the house without your permission: however she is happy to welcome guests when you greet them at the door. No food/toy aggression with people.     Abby was found in NYC as a stray and has had at least one litter of pups. She was spayed in the fall and is now happy to focus on being a carefree pup herself. In a lot of ways, it feels like this is Abby's puppyhood. If you want a girl who loves hard and plays hard, this may be your pup.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters need to fill out an adoption application. References will be checked and a home visit conducted. Potential adopters need to ensure that any current pets and all family members meet with us prior to any adoption. Adopters are responsible for confirming with their homeowners insurance company that there will be no lapse in coverage with a rottweiler or pitbull on premises. Adopters are also responsible for confirming that there is no breed specific legislation in their community.

Processing adoption applications involves our volunteers' time and resources. We ask that you REVIEW OUR ADOPTION CONTRACT which outlines training, housing and fencing requirements BEFORE YOU APPLY. If agreeing to all of the terms in the contract is not something you are willing to comply with, please do not apply.

We prefer our dogs to be placed in northern New England because that's where we are physically. We will extend our adoptions to the immediate surrounding states including northern New Jersey and New York based on volunteer availability.

In accordance with the regulations set forth by the Department of Agriculture in New Hampshire, For the Love of Dog considers our "coverage area" to be New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts. Dogs who originate outside of our coverage area require additional pre-entry medical expenses and quarantine as well as transportation fees.

Unless otherwise noted, the adoption fee for dogs are as follows:

Rottweilers originating from our coverage area :: $350 ($400 for dogs 6 months and under).

Rottweilers originating outside of our coverage area :: $450.

All Bully Breeds :: $200
