Lucky's fosterer writes...

Lucky is truly a very lucky boy. Someone left him in a fenced in area without any food or water. When he was found, he was only 37 pounds, which is 20 or 25 pounds under what his body weight should be. Although people have let him down in the past, Lucky doesn't hold it against anyone. He loves everyone and shows every day that he is so happy to be alive and to now be loved by his foster family. He is currently 45 pounds and is steadily gaining weight and muscle. He will always be a "miniature Rottweiler" because of the neglect he suffered, but he is absolutely a beautiful guy. We couldn't believe how gorgeous his coat is after a couple of baths and some food in his belly.

In addition to his good looks, Lucky has an amazing personality. He loves to play fetch or just throw a ball up in the air to himself (watch the video of Lucky having a great time). He plays well with dogs big and small, or if a dog isn't interested in playing, he is a gentleman and doesn't disturb them. He also gets along with cats, as he met and seemed just fine with the resident cat at the veterinarian's office. He isn't all about playing though; he loves to just sit by the feet of his foster family and relax with a good belly rub.

You will truly feel very lucky, if you make Lucky part of your life!

If you are interested in Lucky, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application. **CHANGE** Lucky IS NOT expecting to attend the next adoption show, October 12th at the Silver Spring PetSmart PetSmart, although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bowie 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 Bowie 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 Bowie paves the way for another one to be saved.
