Facts about Rollie

  • Breed: St. Bernard/Mastiff Mix
  • Color: White - With Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Rollie came to us in April of this year. He has a unique story, and while we tried our best to keep him with his family, it's come time that we list him for adoption. Rollie's family was having housing issues and they decided to keep Rollie with a friend who did not keep a good eye on him and often left him outside unattended to. With only a partially fenced in yard, he found himself bored and decided to go on adventures. Rollie was picked up numerous times by animal control. When he wasn't reclaimed, we tried to work with the original family who explained what had happened. But after almost 4 months, the family has decided not to reclaim him. So, it's with a lot of heartfelt pain for Rollie, that we have decided to list him for adoption.

Rollie is approx 4 years old and his previous owners believe he is a Saint Bernard/Mastiff mix. He is a big solid boy, about 80lbs of pure sweetheart. Rollie has a calm demeanor and enjoys meandering through the yard and checking out the geese. He loves people and can forget how big he is as he rolls over against your leg so you can give him a belly rub. He does well on leash and has good manners. He does not seem to mind cats at all, just sniffs them and keeps on walking. In his previous life he lived with a several younger children and we are told he was very gentle with them. Rollie is a great dog and he enjoys a walk, but does not require one everyday. His energy level is probably best described as moderate.

If you would like to give Rollie the loving home that he deserves, please apply at www.playersforpits.com!

About Players for Pits, NFP

About Our Rescue Group...

Players for Pits is a 501c3, non profit rescue that connects professional athletes to the community in order to come together to take a stand against the abuse and neglect of animals. PFP serves the western suburbs of Chicago and is a foster based rescue, so the dogs in our care are in foster homes learning the basics of being a well balanced dog versus being in cages at loud boarding facilities.

The athletes involved in our rescue actively support the rescue efforts and help by spreading the word of dogs in need. It is the mission of Players for Pits to educate dog owners about proper pet care - both physical and mental - so that the dogs in our care can be happy, well balanced members of society. It is our goal to rescue dogs from high kill shelters and place them into loving homes in the suburbs. At Players for Pits we stand up for pit bulls, who's character is routinely tarnished and often misrepresented. We recognize the pit bull for what it is: a DOG. And any dog with the right care and owners can be a wonderful pet. While we are an advocate for pit bulls, we do not discriminate based on breed and will take in other breeds if they need you help. Players for Pits is also very active in the community and we co-host clinics to help struggling families maintain their pets health, we train pit bull type dogs to become therapy dogs for children with abusive backgrounds, and we try to involve the community in our goal to reduce pet abandonment.
