In shelter DogWhite Hall, Arkansas, 71602
Please contact SSRR (Adoptions@southernstatesrescuedrottweilers.org) for more information about this pet. SSRR provides FREE transport to our approved adopters Rocky was surrendered to a shelter in May of 2020 by his owner. The shelter took care of his vetting, including putting him through heartworm treatment. He was fostered for a few months and then in August of 2020, he went on an adventure from TN to FL to his new adopters home. Unfortunately, the adopter didn't follow the Decompression Guidelines that we send to all adopter and foster homes. The new adopter notified us within 24 hours that Rocky had to go. He had traveled such a far distance already and we had no fosters in the area, so he went into a boarding facility close to his adopter where he stayed for 2 months. In October of 2020 we moved Rocky to a different boarding facility, more centrally located, but our sweet guy is still there today. While he receives excellent care there and they spend as much time as they can exercising and working with him, it is not the same as being in a real home. He needs much more consistency! Rocky is a very special boy who desperately needs someone to commit to him. He's a sweet boy who craves attention from his people. He needs someone who is going to allow him ample time to decompress and adjust to his new surroundings. He wants to please you, he just doesn't completely understand what is expected of him. So, he needs a family who is going to teach him how to trust, continue working on his training and show him what it means to be a true family member. Rocky is doing better at not pulling on the leash, but still has a lot to learn. Basically, Rocky is a full grown puppy. He doesn't realize he's big and he doesn't realize he's strong. For this reason, he can't go to a home with cats or small dogs. He would probably do best to be the only furry child.
