COURTESY POSTING~~ INFORMATION DIRECT FROM ROXY’S MOM : Roxy is an amazing 3 year old Rottweiler. She was put up for adoption because her owner lost his home to a fire. Since her adoption by me, she has been a truly great companion who is incredibly well behaved in the home. She is happy to lay by your feet while watching tv or even sit on the couch with you if you let her. She loves to nuzzle and get belly rubs. She is very eager to please you. Roxy is happy to make eye contact with you and gives loving looks. She is beautiful! And, she has her natural tail, which is one of my favorite things about her because when it wags from happiness it's just the best! Roxy is happy just to be with you and follow you everywhere. She does get anxious when left alone but has gotten much better. Because of this, we have completely crate trained Roxy and she is great at going in the crate. Roxy knows all the basic obedience commands. We've been working a lot on some advanced things like staying on her place during dinner time. She is completely house broken and will let you know if she needs to go out. She does not chew on anything in the house except her toys. But, don't leave your belts on the floor. That is the only thing that she has chewed on! Roxy really does love to get to know people but has had some challenges during introductions. She's distrustful at first and needs to meet people on her own terms. I’ve been telling people to pretend she’s not there and to wait until she approaches them and smells them. Then she will feel more comfortable with them and they can pet her body. I have had a couple of situations where she air snapped at people because the introduction was too fast. It has only happened a few times but because of this I made the adjustment to how she meets people. The reason I sadly need to rehome Roxy is because she has been living with me in a small house with a courtyard but needs to be walked out in town for bathroom trips. I live in a small touristy town that has tons of people. This has been challenging for Roxy. She has done air snaps at people when walking close by her. So I have been using the gentle leader with her to really have control of her head while on walks. Despite this, Roxy loves to go on walks. She just needs a lot of focus and attention from me while on them. Please know, she has not bitten anyone. Nor has she even made any contact with anyone. In Roxy's original home she lived with another dog and I'm sure would be happy to do so again. I think she would really be much happier in a home with a backyard so she does not have to encounter so many people she doesn’t know each time she needs to go out on a walk for bathrooming. An experienced dog owner or Rottweiler owner who would be willing to continue to work with Roxy on socializing would be a great fit. Contact for an application is Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org. Beth will then forward the applications to me to determine who is the best match for my dear Roxy.
