Sex:  Male

   
Age:  3 years


Good with dogs: I seem to like other dogs! But it takes time and patience to be sure.


Good with cats:  Not sure.


Good with kids: Yes, I love kids!


Weight:  55 lbs


Name/Nicknames:  Papalo,


Hobbies: Snuggling, the gentlest roughhousing ever, parking in front of the heat register, going for walks.

Tricks/Commands:  I know “sit” and “to wait for my meals until I’m told. I’m pretty good on the leash! I have a lot of tricks left to learn, but I’m interested in learning, and really nice!
 
Crate Trained:  Yes, I love it in there!
Potty Trained:  Yes
Activity Level:  Medium. I do like to keep busy, but I’m also really mellow and gentle. I’d probably be very comfortable with almost any age group, including ladies or gentlemen 'of a certain age' who would enjoy opening their home to a sweet animal companion.
Fun things I do:
Almost everything people do is fun for me right now.

Socialization/who I currently live with:  I live with adults, but I bet I’d like kids, too!

Interesting things about me: 
I have a sweet, loyal, piglet-like demeanor, and I love crawling along the floor.

What am I looking for: If you’re affectionate to dogs and like to be around them, that’s great, because that’s how I feel about humans! I like to be near them all the time. If you’re ready to love someone back who needs a little patience with learning new tricks, but is super sweet, gentle and loving, then I’m ready for my forever home with you!

About A Rotta Love Plus

About Our Rescue Group...

A Rotta Love Plus is dedicated to the Rottweiler, APBT, AmStaff, and other non-traditional breeds. We are the oldest Rottweiler rescue in the state of Minnesota and the first non-profit Rottweiler Rescue in the state. (A Rotta Love and PitsPlus have merged as one!)

Rescue - We are here to rescue the unwanted and neglected Rottweilers and other non-traditional breeds that are surrendered to local animal shelters.
Re-Home - With the help of foster homes we evaluate and prepare the dogs to be re-homed with a loving family.
Educate - For those willing, we are here to educate on responsible ownership of these great breeds and what owning a dog (or dogs) is all about.

The Rottweiler, APBT, and many others have fallen victim to bad press and prejudice. A Rotta Love is THEIR VOICE. We are here to defend and protect these wonderful breeds.

Our Adoption Process...

Every dog adopted from A Rotta Love Plus goes to its new home spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped. We also provide a collar, leash and their favorite toy. We request a $300 donation for each dog to help us cover these costs and to assist us in rehoming other dogs.

If you are interested in one of the dogs you see here the first step is to fill out our online application which is available on our website or to give us a call.

If you don't see a dog here that fits your particular needs please give us a call anyway. We frequently have dogs on a waiting list or in other shelters. Let's us know what you are looking for and we can usually help you find the perfect dog for your situation. If you are looking to work with people that KNOW these breeds you've come to the right place. We've trained and competed with the Rottweiler for many years and placed over 300 dogs since 1997.
