The kennel is no place for a teething puppy and Nero is feeling a little stressed at the moment. He will need patient and gentle owners who can help set him up for success. Enrolling Nero into group doggy training classes will be essential for his new owners to keep up his training and socialisation with dogs! Nero is currently most suited to family who are home more often than not, in time after he has grown up a little and had a good settling in period Nero may be able to be left alone for longer periods of time. This fun loving boy could go home with kids 10+ or a well-mannered doggy friend, pending a meet and greet.

This handsome boy is a Rotti owners dream, he has a sweet and friendly nature and loves playing tug or snoozing in the sun. He has great basic manners and loads of potential for further training but is looking for a home with older teens or adults only please – he wants to be your only baby! At 5 years old he is entering his middle ages era but is still very puppy like, sadly he wasn’t socialised much as a young pup which has resulted in Bear having some awkward social skills – he can make friends but needs to be matched well. If you’re an experienced Rottweiler owner this could be the boy for you!
