Adoption Monday: Dixie, Rottweiler, Toronto, ON

Dixie is beautiful 2 1/2 year old purebred female Rottweiler with a very sad past.

She is a 68lb. bundle of energy. Dixie came very timid and scared. She had no experience living in a home. It took her quite a bit of time for her to become trusting and to relax.

Dixie is extremely affectionate with those she knows and trusts, and loves to give kisses. 

She will give her belly up for a scratch (but only when she feels comfortable). Although she is extremely playful out in the yard and comes in full of dust - LOL) she doesn't know what a toy is!

Dixie knows her name and will come running if you call her especially if you say "cookie" or "treat". She is extremely food motivated and will jump like a kangaroo to get to her food.

Dixie has attended Dog Obedience classes and knows how to walk on a leash, sit, stay (due to a lack of confidence she cannot master the down position). 

She has experienced many different people (teenagers and adults) and although she is very unsure of them and herself, given time to smell them she will relax but at a safe distance.

Dixie will need focus and hard work so for this reason she'll do best in a home without small children. She will need a family with large breed knowledge, experience and a lot of patience.

Dixie must go to a country home as she is protective of her home (no aggression) just a lot of barking. It is important that she has a male dog to interact with as this will aid in her transition and comfort.


ANML-RESQ is a dedicated group of volunteers looking out for the 4-legged creatures we share this world with. Their goal is to save a dog or cat from being euthanized in a shelter, through no fault of their own - just in the wrong place at the wrong time. If they don't have a foster home available they will work with other reputable organizations to find a place.

ANML-RESQ relies solely on donations and fundraisers to spay/neuter, vaccinate and microchip their pets prior to adoption.  They don't even use funds for gas to transport the pets in their program to their new homes!
