He is a Pistol, and as cute as a bullet! He is very sweet to his people. He is small and sassy. He is confident. He was unsociable with other dogs when he first came to us, and it took him two weeks before I could get him to live with the other Rotties in the house and feel confident that he would not start trouble with anyone. He is now the best of friends with the two resident rotties that he lives with and he gets along great with his two foster brothers and sisters as well. He has been introduced to a variety of rottweilers over the past few weeks and each time it has gotten easier and easier to integrate him with them. This last meet and greet made me very proud of him. He walked around the block with a new rottweiler and I don't even think he looked at her twice. He is crate trained and I often find him in there when I leave the door open. He just goes in all by himself. Pistol listens well, and will do what you tell him to do. He really wants to please you, and loves to be held and petted. He is house trained, and walks well on a leash. He is pretty small for a male rottie, He weighs in at about 65 pounds I believe. Pistol is a good looking boy, and his coat is nice and shiny. He has a ton of potential if given the chance. It is unknown how Pistol would do with kids but I would assume that since he is so good people, then he should do well with older children. We did some limited cat testing with him and he did fantastic with the cat. Once he saw it, he gently approached it for a quick sniff, sat down and watched it for a few minutes while it walked around him, and then he looked away and paid no further attention. Pistol was surrendered with another rottweiler and the other one was adopted to a home with a cat and he does fine with the cat. . I can honestly say that since he came to stay with us in October, he has never once chewed up anything at all. He has earned my trust and I do not crate him at all when I leave the house. Pistol has no medical issues that we are aware of, He seems to be very healthy.
Give Pistol a chance at a forever home. He has been in foster care for a long time, since Oct 2012, mainly because he was un-socialized with dogs at first, but we have addressed that and socialized him, and he is ready to spread his wings and fly into his forever home now. Will it be yours?

If you are interested in becoming a foster home for Rotten Rottie Rescue, please contact us to learn more!
Events will be updated as their dates and locations become available
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 copying and pasting this link https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?cid=3d2e997ca31d6e6d&resid=3D2E997CA31D6E6D!656&parid=3D2E997CA31D6E6D!108
If you have difficulties getting the above link to work, you can go to our website, click on the forms tab, and then download the questionnaire, complete it and email it back to us.
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 between $300 and $350 depending on how much money had to be invested into the dog to make it adoptable. These funds are necessary so that our organization may continue to rehome rottweilers.
We rescue Rottweiler dogs in Maricopa and Pinal Counties. We are based in Gilbert, AZ but have foster homes throughout the valley.
