Facts about Bonnie

  • Breed: Rottweiler
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Bonnie is an easy going girl who is about 5 years old, good with the other dogs that she has met and lived with, Good with kids. She is a protector and loved her human children in her last home. In fact she was going to be a service dog for an autistic child that she lived with and loved. That was the plan anyway. Then one day someone entered their home, and Bonnie was confused and didn't think the person should be in the home, and Bonnie told the person to leave and when then didn't, Bonnie bit them on the arm. The arm was badly bruised, but other then that not bad. Bonnie's owner said that she did want to have to deal with issues like that and gave her back to us. Funny, because she had asked for a protective dog when she first came to us. Had this person really been an intruder, Bonnie would have been a hero. We have taken a couple of weeks to observe her around people who come to our house to visit, and she has growled at a couple of people, but we were able to convey to her, that they were friends and it was alright for them to be in the house. I think the stronger she bonds will someone, she could potentially become a little over protective. Her new owner will need to socialize her as often as possible and teach her that it isnt her job to protect the family. Unless of course, you want her to have that job, then you should send her to protection training so that she can make better decisions on who she is suppose to protect you from. She walks well on a leash, she knows her basic commands, sit, stay, down, come, drop it, ect. She doesn't plow through doorways or jump on people when she gets excited. She is crate trained and potty trained and generally a well behaved dog. Have not seen her arounds cats, but there is a good possibility that she may do fine with them.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our fun loving not so rotten rotties, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire that will allows us to get to know you better and to make sure the dog you are looking at is a good fit for your family and lifestyle. You can access our questionnaire by going to our website, www.rottenrottie.com click on the forms tab, and fill out the questionnaire and submit it online.

After we review your answers, if we feel that the dog that you are interested in, is not a good fit for you and your family, we may recommend a different rottweiler companion. After we determine which Rottweiler is the best for you, we will set up a time so that you can meet him or her at their house, where they will feel most comfortable and act as they normally do. An adoption contract will be signed to finalize the adoption and we do ask for a rehoming fee of $300 for most adults, $150 for most of our seniors 6 years and for any rottweiler mix of any age (except puppies) . Our fees for puppies fluctuate depending on how much we had to invest into them or their litter. These funds are necessary so that our organization may continue to rehome rottweilers. ALL of our dogs are sterilized, fully vaccinated and microchipped and come with a collar and a leash. We have also addressed any injury or illness that they had when they came to us, or received in foster care. These problems will be disclosed to the adopter prior to adoption.
