Well. It didn't work out...
He was the most beautiful rottweiler that I have ever seen. He was gentle, obedient, good in the car, nice on the leash. He had the most beautiful amber eyes. Unfortunately he outweighed Bart by at least 10 pounds - and he was underweight from being a stray. He was dominate with Bart, who is a big wusie-boy (Gizmo was the dominate one of the two) and Bart kept hiding under the table and growling. Chubs, who I've come to think of as 'Thor' was excited-dominate, but could have become aggressive easily. It was a powder keg. Too much stress for our grieving pack.
I left early for work Saturday morning and had the opportunity to spend several hours of one-on-one time with this magnificent boy. We walked around the neighborhood where my office is. He greeted people nicely. People were drawn to him. I fell in love; I admit it.
The rescue guy came to get him, and tomorrow Chubs (Thor) is being transported to Big Sky Rottweiler Rescue in Wyoming. It seems to be a wonderful organization which deals exclusively with rotties. They seem to know their stuff.
Chubs seemed to have a bit of a limp in his left rear leg. The first dog I looked at on their site was a beautiful girl who was undergoing surgery for her hip displaysia. How wonderful if this magnificent boy could get help for his leg out of this. All of my disappointment at this not working out would be ameliorated knowing he got the treatment he might need.
Thank you, Mayzie, Ranger and Grandpa J for encouraging us to open our home to someone special. While it didn't work out this time, I met a wonderful dog, learned more about rescue and found an amazing organization that specializes in rotties all because of you! Thank you, you little brindle beauty!!
