Hello! My name is Athena (yes, I am named after the Greek Goddess-because I’m perfect). I am around 2 years old, and I weigh about 50 pounds. Yes, I am a Rottweiler, but I still have my tail. I like to play in the play yard at the rescue, but if you let me, I’d rater lay in your lap (what do you mean I’m not a lap dog?) My human friends at the rescue tell me I am very sweet, and I walk very well on a leash. I am also very gentle, especially for being so young. Since I am young though, I still have some things to learn, but I listen well and I am very treat motivated.
I haven’t had a lot of experience in new environments so please have patience with me while I adapt, but I am very eager to please those I love. Cuddling on blankets and chewing on bones are some of my favorite past times, but I do enjoy a good walk where I can look around at all the things in the neighborhood. I will require a home with an active family willing to help me exercise off some of my energy. I loves to go for walks, to eat cookies and all people. I don't have good manners when meeting other dogs as they say I get to excited. The staff would say its workable with the right owner. Also a home with out cats and no small dogs for me is ideal. i was never socialized with them and now I think they are the enemy.
Applicants must have prior Rottweiler (or similar breed) experience. An approved adoption application is required. The $185 adoption fee (payable by cash only) includes spay/neuter; microchip; dental teeth cleaning (if needed prior to adoption); vaccinations; and heartworm testing. Our adoption application may be found by going to: www.headinhomerescue.org; then click on the link to the adoption application. Dogs for adoption may be seen by appointment only following an approved application. Proof of completion of an obedience class is required for all dogs following adoption. Please note: while we welcome out of state applications, we do not ship our animals and require adopters to come to Holland to finalize any adoption.
