LOUIE – 1 year male. Louie is new to the rescue. He came into a Missouri shelter as a stray and arrived at Recycled Rotts on Monday, July 18th.  Louie has a wonderful personality and loved everyone of his transport drivers, slobbering each and every one of them with big kisses. Now he is in a foster home and doing well with the two home-girls. Louie is scheduled to be neutered and have his cherry eye repaired soon. More information and photos on Louie will be posted when available.

If can’t wait and want more information on how to include Louie in your home, please go to our website Placement Page for our placement policies and online application.


Sweet Senior Rottie Gracie was relinquished by her owner to a shelter in the south and was immediately put on their list to be euthanized. GGGRRR!!!  The story we were told is that the owner was deployed overseas and the wife didn’t want to deal with her. More GGGGRRRR!!!!!  The message to help Gracie went out and we offered Gracie a place with Recycled Rotts.

Through the help of many selfless people a transport was set up and Gracie found herself in a car (many cars) on her way to Chicago. Her first stop was at our vet and where we found out what was probably the real reason no wanted Gracie – she is heartworm positive. Again, through the aid of our wonderful Recycled Rotts family and Facebook friends, we were able to raise the funds needed to treat Gracie.

Gracie has started her heartworm treatment and is responding well. She is in a foster home, loves her family and is just one happy girl. Gracie loves to meet new people and is always ready to greet you with a stubby wag.  She has adjusted so well, we have to wonder if Gracie doesn’t care about the family she left behind, the family that so nicely dumped her, and just wants to look forward to the future.

Well, Gracie, your future is here and we know there is a family out that that will open up their hearts and home to you.

JUICY – 4 year female Cane Corso. JUICY was returned by her family to a local shelter. She is a very sweet girl and absolutely loves being around people. JUICY would do best as an only dog or with a male her own size. She is housebroken, crate trained and does know some basic commands. She is an ideal candidate for someone looking for a companion to hang out with or the first time Mastiff/Cane Corso. Juicy would love to have a fenced yard where she can play and she loves to lay out in the sun.

If you are interested in including JUICY in your home, please go to our PLACEMENT PAGE for our requirements and our online application.


ALLY – 4 year female. Ally isn’t quite sure what happened. One day she had a family whom she loved the next they walked out and abandoned her. No wonder she is a little overwhelmed. Despite that, she is a very sweet girl who has a non-stop stubby. She is settling in and loving her foster home, enjoys being with her two foster brothers. Ally is housebroken and crate trained, she does know some basic commands and enjoys going for walks. Ally has a dominant side to her and we would prefer that she is placed in a home with rottie experience.

TIERNEY – 18 month female.

From Tierney’s Foster Mom:   Tierney “T” has been in her foster home for 3 weeks and she has a long road ahead of her. She came in emaciated, filthy and afraid of her own shadow. She is leery of everyone and everything. After coaxing her out of the car with a cheeseburger trail from the garage to the house, she paced uncomfortably for the first two days. It was heartbreaking.

In this short time, she has put on some weight and shed her straw like coat to reveal a beautiful shiny black and rust coat. Even though we cannot get too close to her, she has proven to be quite the character. Her favorite past time is sneaking out of her crate to steal the throw pillows and anything else she can find along the way. She is not happy until her crate is full. Thank goodness she is only a hoarder, not a chewer.

Each day we push her a little more to acclimate to everyday life and she has proven that she is passive and increasingly curious. Her intense food motivation has helped her to come out of her shell a tiny bit each day. We are working on perfecting “come”, the only command she appears to recognize. She will not cross a threshold if someone is standing too close, but will take off out a door if left open a crack. We are still working on getting her used to a collar and leash as she takes off when approached. She is so afraid of most things, we have not been able to take her on a walk yet.

It is great to watch her alone in the backyard, you would never know the struggles she is going through. She runs around throwing her toys, sniffs around every corner, cools off in the shade, and sometimes basks in the sun. We can throw a toy, she will get excited and run after it, but once approached, the game is over. She wants to be a pup and play, but doesn’t know how and is not ready to trust. Last night I was allowed to really pet her, it was the first time she fully relaxed while being pet.

Tierney will require a lot of obedience training and socialization. She is crate trained, her crate is a necessity, her safe place. T will need a home with older children that are able to give her space during the transition.  As of today, no other animals in the house, she is especially petrified of dogs her size. She has a very high prey drive with all wildlife and will alert you of their presence with a loud carrying bark and howl to match. Tierney has met visitors, male and female, young and old – she does not like new people in her foster home, but will mind her manners and quiet down eventually. T is very intelligent and has so much potential waiting to be brought out.

Tierney is not quite ready for her furever home. When she is, she will need a committed family.  If anyone is interested in her though and would like to talk about her further, please either contact the rescue through our CONTACT FORM or fill out the application on our PLACEMENT PAGE.
