Rocky was moved from Tallahassee, FL to Wakefield, VA for some much-needed specialized training. After a month of training, Rocky is doing AMAZING!!! Rocky has been living with quite a few dogs, ranging from a Great Dane to a Chihuahua. However, due to his size, Rocky will not be adopted to a family with small dogs. He has learned social skills from the training dogs!
Rocky still likes to chase cats but it seems more playing than anything. Again, due to his size, he cannot go to a home with cats. Rocky also lives on a farm with chickens, roosters, ducks, a goat, pig and Emu, among other animals. As you can see in one of the video’s Rocky doesn’t pay much attention to the ducks or geese that walk right by him. This is a tremendous improvement over just a month ago.
Rocky is a very special boy who desperately needs someone to commit to him. He's a sweet boy who craves attention from his people. He needs someone who is going to allow him ample time to decompress and adjust to his new surroundings.
Southern States Rescued Rottweilers, Inc. (SSRR) is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated primarily to the rescue and subsequent placing of Rottweilers that have been lost, abandoned or abused. SSRR is set up under section 501(c)3 of the IRS Code. We are made up of a group of Rottweiler owners and fanciers from several southern states. Our primary goal is to function as a bona fide rescue organization. Our secondary goals include promoting the public's knowledge and appreciation of Rottweilers, and to distribute materials about the health, training and development of Rottweilers, particularly Rottweiler rescues.
A knowledgeable volunteer carefully evaluates all Rottweilers that are accepted into the SSRR program. All Rottweilers are placed into foster care until a permanent home can be found. All Rottweilers are spayed or neutered prior to placing. We aggressively seek loving and permanent homes. We utilize word of mouth, personal contacts and the Internet to find suitable homes. All dogs are placed with a contract designed to protect the dog, the new owner and SSRR.
SSRR accepts tax-deductible donations from individuals, estates, and corporations. All SSRR representatives are volunteers and none receives a salary, including officers and directors. As our organization grows, we intend to expand our efforts .

We are in need of foster homes! A foster home is a temporary home for one of our Rotties until SSRR finds a permanent home for the dog. A foster home provides the love and shelter for the dog while SSRR provides and pays for all medical needs.
Being a foster home is not easy. Taking a Rottie into your home, caring for him, loving him, and then letting him go to a new forever home can be very difficult. But, fostering can also be the most rewarding and fulfilling thing a true dog lover can ever do to support dogs in need.
If you are interested in becoming a foster home, please fill out a foster application.

Anoki’s Memorial fund has been established for SSRR volunteers and family / friends that are facing financial hardship due to an emergency vet situation/illness for their personal dog.
Place of Hope
From the bond and love of a foster home and this special senior girl blossomed SSRR’s “Place of Hope” program. Though their time might be limited, senior dogs truly have so much love to give.
Our Special Needs dogs truly need our help and often require extensive medical care. Most times, these dogs would not stand a chance of survival if not pulled by a rescue group to save them.

All donations to this memorial fund will be utilized for Special Needs rescued Rottweilers including but not limited to their veterinary care including vaccinations, surgeries, medications and rehabilitation.
