Tabby had not lived a fairy tale life. Her dad passed away and no one else in the family wanted her. She was dumped at a rural shelter where she became depressed and withdrawn. We think this girl will make a fine companion and is starting to come out of her shell. She must be the only animal in the home. She will also require an adopter with low traffic that will follow established de-compression. Tabby is about 7 years old, heart worm negative, vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed. Adoption fee is $150. Come meet this sweet girl!



Poor Barkley was dumped by a family member at a local vet clinic to be euthanized because she did not want to care for him. How could you not LOVE this gentle giant! He is 7 years old and wonderful with humans. He will make an amazing companion! He has a special adoption fee of $150 until Easter, fully vetted, to help him find a home for the holidays.



Meet Cogz! He is a gorgeous blocky headed rottweiler with a giant smile! He is dog friendly and just needs to learn some manners. He is 2 years old and his former owner purchased him from a breeder but forgot that this is a breed that does need training. He is getting that now and we are looking for an adopter who wants to continue working with him. He does have prey drive and is very toy focused so will do best in a home without children or smaller animals. Cogz is about 85 lbs so not a giant boy. He is Avon, Ohio.



Hello, my name is Wednesday, but my foster family call me “Lady W” or “Dubbie-Do” sometimes. Life was pretty tough for me before REAL Rott Rescue saved me. I spent 6 years of my life on an Amish puppy mill, just having litter after litter, so you can imagine that I don’t warm up to people too easily. I also have a foster Rottie sister who has been showing me what it’s like to be a fur family member. Being a “mill” gal for 6 years, Fommy realized that it’s tough work house training me. She takes me out on a leash and I wander the yard for awhile until I find the perfect spot. Fommy thinks it might be easier on me (and my family) if I had a fenced in yard where I could go out and wander.

Also, while I’m trying to get used to my surroundings, I sometimes get scared and try to run away. Usually I try to run to a place I feel safe. I don’t realize how big and strong I am, and might knock someone down if they’re in my way. I also HATE being in crates, it reminds me too much of the “mill” – but being in a large enclosed room with a fellow fur family member keeps me at ease.

The best home for me is a family (with older kids/no kids) that has the patience to continue house training me and working with me. When I warm up to you, I’ll let you give me belly rubs and love you forever! Are you the perfect family for me?



Humvee is a very focused boy. He is a large beautiful male rottweiler who is good with most dogs and tends to be vocal.

Humvee is at our Polk, OH facility working on obedience.



Beast is 5 year old Male Rottie that came to us from Arizona. Beast would do well in a low key household with children over 14 years of age. Dogs in the home would need to be laid back dogs. He is seeking some serious loving as he used to be a guard dog. He is great on a leash & pack walks. He has yet to be cat tested. He is neutered, UTD on vaccinations, HW negative + on preventatives.



Dalton and his brother Wade came into rescue after they were found in an abandoned home in Tennessee. Both tested positive for heart worm and have been treated. They are current on all vaccines, neutered, and micro-chipped. Dalton does well with most other dogs but does not care for cats. Kids are fine. This boy is ready for a home of his own! Avon, Ohio.



He is a 2-3 year old male found as an injured stray in Detroit. He is all healed and ready for his forever home. He does well with a well balanced dog but would also do well as an only dog.

Sheba is a gorgeous 4 year old Rottweiler with a natural tail. She is a bit on the plump side, but she is not getting a lot of play time in her foster home. She is good with other dogs and is a gem!

Aunt Mildred.jpg


Our beautiful sweet senior Aunt Mildred has gone to her foster home in Columbus, Ohio. This little lady is wonderful! She loves to ride in the car, is good with other dogs and loves people.

SB Max.jpg


“Snakebite” Max was surrendered to a rural shelter after he was allegedly bitten in the eye by a snake. There was a definite injury so his eye was removed. He has recovered wonderfully from his enucleation and neuter, and he is a much happier boy. Max is a little over 3 years old. He is a wonderful dog. He is very appropriate with correction from other balanced dogs. Max will make a great companion.

Avon, Ohio



Luna is a 1 year old pocket size Rottweiler, weighing about 55 pounds. She is currently in a foster home with three Rottweilers who are teaching her the ropes. She absolutely loves to play and romp around with other dogs. Luna's foster noticed she had problems with her eyesight. She saw an ophthalmologist and had an Electroretinogram. The tests concluded that she can see but don’t know how well. She may early onset retinal degeneration and possibly could lose her eyesight at some point in her life but she may also never have any issues in the future. She will need a special adopter committed to her needs if she eventually loses her sight and will need a home with another dog and a fence.



Wade is a sweet 2 year old boy who craves human attention. He loves to lean, cuddle, and flip on his back for belly rubs. He came to us from Memphis, TN. He has been treated for heartworm and has made a full recovery. He would benefit from a foster home or foster-to-adopt home. Wade will need some basic obedience, but overall is a nice pup! He is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and on flea/tick/heartworm preventative. He is good with other dogs.



Rocko is 8 year old Shepard/Rottie mix. LOVES people! Only pet in home. Well behaved and good on a leash. Housebroken.



Hi! I’m Luna and I am so grateful I got a second chance! I love chewing on toys and following my fommy around. I may have epilepsy but that doesn't slow me down at all. I am house trained, crate trained and am good with all dogs and cats. I am a very big girl so it would be best to be in a house with older kids so that I don't accidentally knock them over. It took me a few days to warm up to my foster brother and sister but now my favorite thing to do is run around the back yard with them when I'm not too busy keeping my human company. I am about as laid back as they come. I am very happy just following my human around but will play when my foster brother tells me it's time. Whether your looking for a laid back friend or a playmate; I'm your girl!



Mud Bud is a quirky boy who was surrendered to the Trumbull County dog pound. We were told from the pound that he tested negative for HW but when he was tested on his annual exam by our vet it showed he was HW+. We have been using the slow kill method of Advantage Multi as Mud Bud has a severe dislike of going to the vet clinic. Mud Bud has had 2 bites which does not make him a reliable candidate for adoption but we do believe he could be placed in the right circumstances. Muddy is good with other dogs on walks and is cat friendly.

Sky is a gorgeous 4 year old rotterman (rottweiler/doberman mix) who is very sweet and delicate. She likes other dogs and loves kids. She will make a great family companion. Sky is spayed, micro-chipped, HW negative and current on vaccines. We are working on basic commands and leash manners.

Adoption pending!



Our new girl is a 2 year old purebred rottweiler who has the best of Rottie attributes! She loves dogs, kids, and has been around farm animals. She loves to play and will do best in an active home where she gets daily exercise. She is fully vetted and is ready to go. Her family loved her but could no longer provide for her due to personal matters. They want to ensure that she gets adopted by a Rottie experienced family that will give her the attention and love she deserves. Avon Lake, Ohio.



Brock is about 5 1/2 years old, neutered, utd on vaccines, utd on preventatives and in great health! Brock was adopted in Oct. 2015 from R.E.A.L. Rott Rescue. Brock is great with kids and humans! He lives with 2 cats and 1 other large dog. This guy is a big loving lug, and can be quite lazy! He’s an indoor dog, but loves laying on the back deck in the sun whenever he can.

Brock is up for adoption again as the family cant keep him not due to him but other family issues.

Brock is crate trained and knows basic commands. He does struggle with reactiveness to other dogs. We’ve been working with a trainer on this issue and with consistent positive training and walks, he is much more successful. He is highly food motivated, so that helps a ton!! He’s also currently on medication to help his anxiety and lower his threshold to triggers, which allows us to build positive training sessions. If properly worked up to it, Brock is a great running partner. And he loves his toys!! Currently located in West Lafayette, IN.



Delilah is approximately one year old and an adorable friendly girl. She is missing a right real paw (we're not quite sure what happened) but it doesn't seem to affect her mobility at all. Delilah will be available to an approved applicant after she is vet checked, vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed.



Patsy a 4 year old Rottweiler. Patsy is the entire package! She is sweet and has a fun playful side yet calms down quickly. She can be choosy with her dog friends, so a meet and greet is recommended. As for cats, she will need a home with absolutely no cats.
