Nero is a dignified 6 year old rottie boy with a secret puppy side he occasionally shares. Especially with women.  He walks nicely on leash, but he really enjoys walking on a long lunge line where he can explore and check out the scents. He’s not a big boy, but he is solid and well built. He has lived comfortably with a male and female dog in the foster home but absolutely should not live with cats.  He can be redirected and is responsive and wants to bond. He has basic manners and doesn’t climb on the furniture, though he probably would like to be invited. Nero enjoys training sessions. He is protective and will need to know his person or people are confident, however he is a sensitive dog too.

He is crate trained and seems to be house broken, but he will need some continued assistance in remembering the rules, including not to counter surf or sneak goodies from the recycling bin. Home living is still new. He loves being near his people and laying near somebody’s feet and he occasionally will roll over for a belly rub or two, if nobody is looking. Nero would love to be somebody’s forever friend. He is waiting for you!

Originally from Puerto Rico, Nero is enjoying his first winter. He will do best with kids over 12. No cats or small dogs, please.

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
