Pistol's Story...
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?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gilbert 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 Gilbert 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 breeders who help with Rottweiler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gilbert paves the way for another one to be saved.
