Hello, my name is Rye. I am an incredibly handsome albeit aloof young adult male Rottweiler/Shepherd mix who is a mellow people-pleaser. I enjoy going on leashed walks, chilling on the couch with my people, chewing on bones, and playing with toys. I will even share my toys with my fur sibs but when it comes to food, although I’m not very food motivated, I am a bit territorial so it’s best that I eat in my kennel/crate if there are other dogs around.

Since I have a high prey drive, I am a flight risk so I will need a securely fenced yard and close supervision. I am potty & kennel/crate trained and I’m good with kids, but I sometimes forget how big I am so smaller kids may not be a good fit for me. I am a smart boy too, I know all sorts of commands like: “sit”, “stay”, “down”, “come”, “kennel/crate”, “outside”, “go potty”, “wait”, & “leave it” and I would love for my new family to teach me a lot more so I can reach my full potential.

I am a precious love bug who is simply looking for my fur-ever home with a wonderfully patient family who will love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me. I think you and I are meant to share our lives together. I promise I’m worth it and I will totally light up your world! Love, Rye

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
