  • Rottweiler - Sophie - Large - Adult - Female - Dog

    Our glorious Sophie is not a dog for just anyone! Our grand female four year old Rottweiller has had a bum start to life. She was adopted from a City Pound adoption program over a year ago, and then returned because her folks moved to an un-dog-friendly locale. Soph found herself back in the clink, where she proceeded to raise quite a bit of hell. When the local Rottie rescue folks passed on Sophie due to over crowding in their precious few foster homes, we were asked to help.Sadly, we did not have room for Soph at first, and so she was designated for the euthanasia list, and was passed by on her d-day. One of our shelter contacts took a stab in the dark and contacted us again, and we were pleased to be able to take her the second time around. Soph was completely terrified during the rescue process, but we paired her with our lead Alpha dog, who convinced Soph that we were the good guys.And, so, Soph blossomed immediately, and has become one of our favorite houseguests. We are hoping to attract seasoned Rottie enthusiasts for Sophie....folks who have had significant background with troubleshooting rescue dog fearful behavior. Soph will bond to her new folks like glue, fairly quickly, but the adoption meeting may be challenging, and will require a leap of faith on the part of her adopters. Soph responds beautifully to strong Alpha leadership. A calm, assertive, Alpha personality will have no trouble managing Sophie because she longs for a strong presence that she can trust. She will require patient troubleshooting of her stranger danger issues, and adopters should be prepared to continue her socialization process.Sophie is a medium energy dog that does not require a lot of exercise, but she needs at least a couple of vigorous leash walks each day and lots of time with her person. She would make an excellent, loving, loyal companion to the active, strong willed single or couple who enjoy the process of bringing a rescue dog along the road to good behavior. Sophie likes some other dogs, mostly the quiet, calm, well behaved types, but will get into a tussle with a wild, high energy, untrained dog. She can be a bully with small dogs at the food bowl, or with tiny terrors whose napoleon complex will surely draw an attack from a larger dog. You can be sure that Soph would take that bait!We'd like to see Soph in a quiet, simple home, with an active couple or single, and perhaps one other calm dog. We want to steer clear of kids and cats. Sophie has great house manners and is beautifully house trained and crate trained. She is a fantastic car passenger, and behaved beautifully during our maiden convertible voyage this year. She is an absolute joy to be around. Sophie is in excellent health. She is spayed, vaccinated for rabies, parvo, distemper, and bordatella. Also, she is microchipped and de-wormed, and has tested negative for heartworm/lyme/earlichia/anaplasmosis.
