  • Rottweiler
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Ebon is a 5 1/2 year old, neutered male, Rottweiler. He weighs 130 pounds. He is house trained and crate trained, and he even goes in his crate and naps, with the door open. Ebon gets along well with dogs of all sizes, and enjoys a good romp when another dog wants to play. He has not shown any signs of aggression. He is in a foster home with 4 other dogs, and does very well. He has not been with cats, but he's been around kitties in carriers, and he seems very interested in them, but doesn't act like he wants to hurt them. Ebon enjoys walks, and does well on the leash, but after a short period of time is ready to go back home. His favorite toy is a ball, which he will play with in very short spurts. A fenced yard would be best, especially if you have another dog. Ebon has a very calm, mild mannered disposition. He wants to be a lap dog, and will snuggle up next to you if given the opportunity. He will lay at your feet while you are on the computer, or watch dog videos on You Tube with you! When you're in your recliner, he loves to walk up to you, and lay his head in your lap, waiting for you to rub or pet his eyes. If you're standing next to him, Ebon shows his affection by leaning into you, hoping you will pet him! Ebon does have some separation anxiety, if he is left alone too long. He isn't destructive or anything like that, but he does howl. He will also howl when he hears loud sirens. He loves his people and wants to be with them - he is a 130 pound hunk of love! He runs right into his crate at bedtime, and doesn't make a peep all night, as long as he can see his people. Ebon has his own way of purring, you might say - when he's really excited, or happy, or maybe anxious, and you pet him, he will curl up his lips and growl. If you didn't know him, you might be frightened, but it's not an aggressive gesture at all, just a funny quirk of his! Because of the size of this big boy, we would recommend that Ebon go to a home with people that have experience with large breed dogs. Ebon is an awesome dog, and will be a very loyal companion and a wonderful friend! noun: ebon dark brown or black; ebony. "the dark shadows of the mountains gave the river an ebon hue"

Ivy is a mixed-breed, spayed female approximately 13 years old. She is very affectionate with people and likes to play fetch and go for walks. I had her at the lake for the first time and she likes to play in the water. She hasn’t gone deep enough to actually swim, but frolics where she can touch. She has had some training with Don Sullivan's Perfect Dog system. She walks well on a leash and has learned basic commands like sit, shake, down, back up and stay. Ivy is great with people, both adults and children. She does show aggression towards other dogs, however, we have been working with her on that as well as no barking. She is starting to warm up to strange dogs better than she used to. It takes careful and controlled/supervised introductions. She seems to do better with mid-sized to large dogs as opposed to small dogs. Once she is comfortable with another dog, she likes to run and play. She would need to have a fenced yard (minimum 5ft fence), and if there are other dogs in the house, they would need to get to know each other well before being left alone together. She has never been around cats or any other animals, and it wouldn’t be recommended. She is not able to go to the Petco dog shows yet as there are too many "stranger" dogs for her, and it becomes too stressful. If you would like to meet Ivy, please leave a message on the dog line and we will return your call to schedule an appointment. She is a great dog with a lot of love to offer, in need of a forever home. She had a dental May 2014.
