Courtesy Post -- Gator is currently an INTACT (this can/will be discussed as I want him neutered) 4 year old male Rottweiler.   He is tall, dark, and very handsome at 80#.  Gator loves dogs of all sizes and genders, loves to play and is very submissive to every dog he's met so far.     We rescued him 3 years ago where he was tied outside for the first 15 months of his life and he knew nothing but that.  He has been living inside with us since and loves his crate when we are not home, stays off furniture,and  is fine with his comfy dog bed near us.  His issue is with many men - for some reason he is afraid of most men (there are a few he trusts for whatever reason, but many he barks at and runs...).  He has been on several camping trips with us and loves it.   He is strong on lead, so needs a strong hand.   Gator is not highly food motivated like most Rotties, but will work for really good treats!  Gator is up to date on shots, and healthy.  He enjoys the beach, long walks, riding in the car, and just being by his owners side - but again, is very picky who his person is.   The ideal home for Gator would have a large fenced in yard to run and play in, and a female person(s) to call his own.   He is a good boy who deserves a family without being afraid.   If you'd like more information on him, please contact me via email @

Gator is in Western MA.

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
