Darius the Rottweiler has a wiggle butt, leans on just about any body part he can find, loves to swim, is a very laid back, easygoing pal. He also knows some commands, listens very well, rides great in the car, likes to play with toys and while Darius likes to snuggle at night he is not overly affectionate. He was abandoned by his previous owners and while that might generally be a bad thing, we think it was a good thing. You see, Darius was not in the best shape when we saved him from the kill list. He had a skin infection along his back, was very skinny, and lacked muscle tone. Additionally, his previous owners never took care of torn ACLs on his back legs and he had hip issues. Darius gets around very well — running around the yard and the house with much vigor, wrestling with his canine foster sister who is much younger and very relentless in her play. He has already gained muscle tone and strength in his legs and they don’t slow him down.
Darius is looking for a home with regular walks, not too far, and a pool or access to a pool would be a huge bonus. So if you are looking for a large, loving Rottie, Darius is the boy for you. He is super sweet and won’t be with us for long so fill out an application for him today at www.azrescue.org.
