Hans is a 2-year-old Rottweiler mix who we rescued from a high-kill shelter in California. He is now in a Seattle area foster home waiting for his forever family!
This mega-handsome boy has a wonderful temperament. At just under 50lbs, he is medium-sized but very strong. This sweet boy loves to play but settles down nicely in the house and enjoys curling up to sleep at your feet or chew on his toys, but he might prefer to snuggle. He'd love to join an active family that will have him along for walks, runs, hikes, and play in the yard!
Hans is a great listener, food-motivated, and easily trained. He knows his basic commands and is leash-trained. His biggest work in progress is learning to not jump up on counters, especially when food is present. Occasionally in playful exuberance he will jump and nip, which is trainable behavior, but in the meantime we do not suggest a home with small children.
Hans is friendly towards all people and plays nicely with other dogs and is non-reactive to snarly ones. Hans has exhibited slight resource-guarding behavior with his bone and food around other dogs (though not with people). He has also exhibited cat-fixation, both in and out of the home. All of these behaviors are trainable with dedication and consistent leadership.
