TWO BEAUTIFUL PRESA CANARIO’S AVAILABLE FOR PLACEMENT REDUCED PLACEMENT FEE AVAILABLE TO QUALIFIED ADOPTORS.
KONG (male) and KANJA (female) – 2 year old Presa Canario, where given up by their owner to a local animal shelter. Both are good with other dogs, in fact they lived with a small dog. Both are housebroken and crate trained. Kong is a real lover and Kanja is a little shy but warms up quickly. Kong and Kanja have been in a foster home since they entered the rescue. They are doing very well and are ready to be placed in their new furever home. It is not required that they be placed together. Our ideal placement would be with someone that has Pressa experience, a fenced in back yard and adult children. Though it would be nice, these two do not have to be placed together. Kong and Kanja qualify for a reduce placement fee and out of area applicants will be considered. Please contact the rescue for more information.
If you would like to include either KONG or KANJA (or both) in your home, please fill out the application available on our website PLACEMENT PAGE (http://www.recycledrotts.org/wp/?page_id=150).
UPDATE – DECEMBER 9th – GRETA – From Greta’s Foster Mom….”A short update on this wonderful girl. Greta is becoming more and more used to being a “regular” dog and doesn’t do half the grumbling or complaining that we had come to know. She is very good when she’s got a toy and one of the boys approaches her. She also is getting to actually like pets…we have had to keep the pets down to a minimum because of her grumbles if she felt she was being touched too much. Now, she often comes up and asks for pets, we can do it longer and tell her she’s a good girl, then we will stop. Many times, she will turn around, look at us as if to say “I didn’t say stop”, and she will offer her backside for more Rottie butt rubs. She absolutely loves to play games, hide and seek, dog puzzles, fetch, etc. She also loves to learn new things and go exploring.
We took all 4 yesterday to have their pictures taken with Santa. Greta was stellar in her behavior. Did not give anyone a hard time during the “posing”, (although I did thwart their plan to put reindeer antlers on her as a prop), listened very well and we got a great picture of all 4! Got lots of compliments on all 4 dogs, but I was mostly impressed with our girl. So, with that being said, I think I am comfortable with sending her to doggie day care at least once/week so she can continue her socialization skills. We have always had so many people coming by in the past that it was never an issue to seek out new people to meet and greet. Those days are slowing, friends are drifting and going their separate ways…so, doggie day care, here comes Greta!
She continues to listen very, very well. Sometimes, I think our boys take the lead from her when I’m trying to get them to listen (mostly during the rough housing). She will always be a bit of a bitch, but such a lovable intelligent one! Whoever is in her future as far as forever home will have a prized companion beyond comparison…I am completely smitten with Greta!”
Greta has been with us for a few months. She is a great dog, but will need a home that will has a firm leader in the household. Greta is doing very well in her foster home but the foster home has a firm but gentle hand with Greta and a very structured environment. Greta knows her place in the home and what is expected of her. Greta is a typical rottie she will try to push her boundaries and if you let her she will take advantage. Greta needs a home with rottie experience, only adult children and someone who is interested in working her. Greta recently attended the Recycled Rotts Lurecoursing event. She loved it. Greta would also enjoy agility or chance to try flyball.

Hugo would love to hang out with his new family and have a buddy to play with. He is good with children and crate trained.

DEXTER – 2 year male. Dexter is a handsome boy from the tip of his nose to the tip of his beautiful rottie tail. Dexter knows some of the basic commands, but would definitely benefit from a refresher course. He is quite the lover and enjoys just putting his head in your lap for pets. Dexter is crate trained and is good with dogs his own size. We are still waiting for the opportunity to see how she reacts to small dogs and cats. Children over 10 would be best.

Bear – 4 year male – Bear wandered into a families back yard and nobody came looking for him, as it turned out his owner lived down the block but never came to claim him. Bear was heartworm positive and underweight after going through the heartworm treatment and getting his weight back on track he is finally ready for his new family. Bear can be shy around men but does love the girls. It is not like he doesn’t like men it just takes him a more time to warm up. Bear loves tennis balls, and tennis balls are the way to his heart. He does have some basic obedience but needs work on his jumping. When he gets excited he does like to jump – it is work in progress. He would do well with a female dog that is laid back, no small dogs or males.
If you would like to include Bear in your home, please visit our Placement Page for our placement policies and an application.
PRINCESS – 4 year female. Princess is a very loving girl who loves to be with people. Her life before entering Recycled Rotts was not the best, but she is now looking forward to a warm place to sleep, all the food she can eat and, most important, a lot of love. Princess would love to have a quiet home, maybe a playmate to keep her company. She does love children, but we feel that children over the age of 8 would be the best fit. Princess is crate trained and knows basic commands. She is very eager to please and would make a perfect companion.
If you are interested in including Princess in your home, please fill out the application available on the Recycled Rotts website Placement Page. While there, make sure you read about our placement policies and procedures.
MANDY – 4 year female. Mandy is shy, sweet and it takes a few minutes for her to warm up to anyone she meets. This could be the result of being picked up as a stray, put into a cage and left to sleep on a cold floor. Finally realizing her family was not going to find her, she was released to Recycled Rotts. Mandy is fine with dogs her own size, but we are still waiting for the opportunity to see how she reacts to small dogs and cats. Many is crate trained, and does have some basic obedience skills. We feel she would do best in a home with children over the age of 10. More information about Mandy will be posted soon.
If you would like Mandy to become a member of your family, please go to our Placement page to read our placement policies and fill out an application.
JACK - 2 year male. Jack is a sweet boy and check out that smile. You just want to give him a hug. Jack is good with female dogs his own size, but no smiles for small dogs or cats.
