Sheba's Story...
For an adoption application or more information about Sheba contact Dena Poudrier @ rescue@rottilove.com or go to their website at http://www.rottilove.com/index.php


Approx age: 3 years Good with: all kids and non-dominant dogs

Sheba doesn't jump, chew, counter surf, dig or bark excessively. She will, however, jump a 4 ft fence to get at a bird, rabbit, cat, opossum, or rat. She was saved off death row at the local humane society in Alamo, TX, sentenced because of the "incurable" disease of heartworms. The rescuer told them they were confusing costly and painful with impossible to treat, and then she bailed her out and did her treatment. She is now healthy as can be and even her hips and teeth are in great shape. She is very loyal and protective (aren't they all), great with kids of all ages. Very patient with ear pulling, eye poking, riding, stepping on and chasing with "weapons" like my monsters will do. I find I have to protect my dogs from the kids. She likes to sleep at the foot of the bed if allowed. She is housebroken beyond belief. She would make a wonderful companion to any household.

Sheba would do best in a house without cats and is fine with other large dogs as long as they are not assertive/aggressive. She is definitely the alpha girl and will stand up to her position. Right now she stays with a female Choc Lab and female Border collie/Aussie mix that she allows to PLAYFULLY jump on her and is fine with that. They respect her and she knows it, even the St. Bernard, bigger than her, jumps on her to play and its okay. As long as the other dogs don't growl and lunge at her in a threatening way she's fine. To be on the safe side, having her move to a home with male dogs would probably be the best solution because Rotts are known to be same sex aggressive. Things may be fine now, but not always.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sheba, a Dripping Springs Rottweiler/Rottweiler dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rottweiler/Rottweiler for sale in Dripping Springs, or seeking a Rottweiler/Rottweiler dog from a breeder in Dripping Springs.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Dripping Springs already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Dripping Springs breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rottweiler/Rottweiler breeders who help with Rottweiler/Rottweiler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dripping Springs paves the way for another one to be saved.
