Found as a stray, I have been dubbed Zac by the shelter staff who think I am a Shepherd and Rottie mix. My beautiful black with tan coat is long and straight. I am probably 1-2 years in age so am still somewhat of a puppy and I am a large but not heavy dog. I need to be neutered by my new guardian. As a newly adopted shelter animal, it is recommended that I be seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible for a checkup. Surgery, vaccinations, worming, flea treatment, heartworm testing and prevention can be discussed at this time. I will do great in a city home, preferably with a fenced in yard or out in the country. I will make a great family dog or a great companion for a single person. Don't let me slip away and get adopted by someone else. I am one very good looking dog.
The Rottweiler is a strong and substantial dog and not one for the average home nor inexperienced owners. It may make an imposing and effective guard dog but needs kind but firm handling and proper training. It is prized for its aggression and guarding abilities, yet can, with proper handling, also be loyal, loving, and a very rewarding companion. This is a courageous, intelligent and reliable dog that adapts well to urban living but needs plenty of exercise. You cannot give this dog too much work or exercise-it thrives on it. The short coat needs daily brushing to keep it in good shape. 'Rottys' may be aggressive with other dogs and should be kept on a leash when in public places.
