Dancer is a beautiful nine-year-old Rottweiler who is a dearly loved and devoted companion in his home. Sadly, his person is preparing to transition to a memory care facility, and Dancer can’t come with her. Dancer needs a new loving home before this move happens. Can you help?
Dancer has gone through extensive obedience training, and before “retiring,” he provided gentle companionship to hospital patients as a therapy dog. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations and is in good health, but he could stand to lose a few pounds. He is a big dog and has gotten a little too big recently as his routine adapted to his person’s declining health. If you’re looking to shed a few pounds too (or even if you’re not), Dancer would love to be your walking buddy.
While Dancer has lived peacefully with another Rottweiler and cats in his current home, he can be dog selective. For this reason, a home without other dogs would be ideal. He is friendly to all humans.
A quiet, calm home is what Dancer is used to, yet he would fit in well with a slightly more active home too. At nine, he’s an older guy who will be more of a couch-potato, binge-watching buddy than a jogging partner.
We need to find Dancer a home before his person moves to assisted care. We want to ensure that this lovely gentle giant who is about to lose his long-time home and person does not have to adjust to a shelter environment as well.
Dancer is currently living in Fluvanna County, Virginia.
