The Dude – A Fun, Energetic and Affectionate Rottweiler Mix

Come meet “The Dude,” an outrageously sweet and loyal Rottweiler mix of just over three years old. Nothing makes him happier than a long game of tug-of-war with some intermittent spouts of zoomies. If he’s not outside, basking in the sun, The Dude is curled up on a couch cushion and happy to watch TV with his buddies all night. He knows lots of fun tricks like “sit pretty” or “crawl” and has been hard at work on the rest of his obedience training. The Dude is very, very smart and enjoys continuing to learn new commands and tricks.

Prior to being in his current home, The Dude, spent about a year of his two year life in a shelter where he was in danger of being euthanized for space. After a month or so of settling into his new home, it was clear that The Dude is an affection boy. The shelter had believed The Dude to be good with dogs and cats, but unfortunately that was not accurate. The Dude has had training and is able to go for walks without being reactive to dogs, though he is usually on the lookout. However, his current owners have cats, and despite everyone’s best efforts, they just aren’t able to get along.

The Dude will start off a little cautious when meeting new people, but with an easy going approach, The Dude will be ready to make new friends. He would do best in a home with an experienced dog owner and no other animals. Since The Dude has not been exposed to children, best that he is in a home with no young children. He is the type of boy that will be your best friend and just want to hang out or play with you. He could be a great running or hiking companion.
