Gentle Guy is a male Rottweiler aged approximately 3 years old. He is okay with other dogs but unknown with cats. He has a nice temperament and we feel he would be suitable to be rehomed with sensible, older children. He came into rescue via the dog warden as an unclaimed stray; itâ€™s really unbelievable that no-one has claimed him, as he has clearly been well looked after, trained and loved in his previous home.
It is not often I can take good photographs of dogs without assistance; well this chap just does exactly as heâ€™s asked! A nicer, super friendly, good mannered and better trained dog you wonâ€™t find. He does a lovely sit and stay, gives both paws and is very, very gentle with treats, (you can put your hands in his mouth and he almost suckles on them, he really is that gentle). He will obey all commands without the aid of a treat. He is very affectionate, he likes to lean in on your legs, get himself comfortable and steady and he can then enjoy a stroke, massage and cuddle. And to top it all, if you can cope with it, he will even give a little kiss! Although we have no background history, a dog this well trained is very likely to be housetrained, although we cannot guarantee it and you should expect a little accident or two with any rescue dog during the settling in period.
Gentle Guy is a happy chappie, loves a trot around our exercise yard and likes to play ball. I canâ€™t find anything to dislike about this lovely lad, he has just settled right in with the kennel routine and just gets on with it, with no negative behaviour reported. Rottweilers are a great breed with the right owner and in the right home environment, they are loyal to their families and I would expect him to form a close bond with new owner and family. Kennels is no place for this lovely lad, so we are keen to see him into a new home as soon as possible. Larger breeds of dog do take longer to rehome than the fluffy small cute ones but please do consider our fella as he is an absolute smasher, a good all rounder that Iâ€™m sure will settle into most home environments.
Please contact us for further details as soon as you can, as Iâ€™m sure the first person to meet him will fall in love on the spot, as there really is no finer Rottie than our Gorgeous Gentle Guy!
