🐾 Meet Gunner, the big-hearted 3.5-month-old Rottweiler puppy with eyes that speak volumes and a heart yearning for unconditional love. 🐾
My name is Gunner, and I have a story to share with you. I recently escaped the confines of a puppy mill, and I’m now on a journey to find my forever home. I’m a big puppy with a lot of love to give, but I promise, I’m worth every ounce of affection you can spare.
When you first meet me, you might notice that I can be a bit shy around new people, but that’s just because I’m learning to trust again. Once I feel safe and loved, I blossom into the most loving and loyal companion you could ever hope for.
My love language is all about snuggle time with my favorite hoomans. There’s nothing quite like curling up with you and feeling your warmth and love surround me. I crave genuine affection, and I’ll return it tenfold.
Since my grand escape from that cage, I’ve been reveling in the freedom to explore my new world. I’ve discovered the joy of toys and become quite the fan. But you know what’s even cuter? Watching me toss my own ball into the air, keeping myself entertained with a one-dog fetch game!
I’m a social pup who loves to play with other dogs, so a home with a confident doggy friend would be perfect for me. I’m known for my goofiness and playful demeanor, and I’m equally happy to play independently or with my hoomans.
Speaking of hoomans, I’m an absolute sweetheart with everyone I meet. I’m gentle with children and have a soft spot for spending quality time with my 81-year-old grandma. The way I gaze into her eyes and melt during our snuggle sessions is pure magic.
I’ve already mastered the art of sitting on command, and I’m diligently working on perfecting my “Shake.” As for potty training, I’m almost there—just a tiny bit more practice, and I’ll have it down pat.
Now, let’s talk about my unique sleep style. You’ll often find me sprawled out on my back, all four legs in the air. Don’t question it; that’s just how I roll!
And did I mention that I’m a food enthusiast? I devour my meals quickly, so a slow-feeder or snuffle mat would help me savor my food a little longer. But hey, I’m just a big ol’ gentle chunk with the most expressive eyes you’ve ever seen, who is looking for a loving family who will love me deeply and wrap me in their safe embrace.
KNOWN HISTORY – Mill broker surrender. These pups have lived their entire lives being nothing more than a number or merchandise. Their whole worlds changed the day they came into our program! They finally got to be members of a real family, and we can’t wait to watch them grow up in loving homes where they are part of YOUR family, too!

About This Breed:
Rottweilers are large, muscular dogs that are known for their strength and loyalty. They are originally from Germany, where they were used as herding dogs and pulling carts. Today, they are popular family pets and working dogs. One of the biggest misconceptions about Rottweiler behavior is that they are aggressive dogs. This is simply not true. Rottweilers are no more aggressive than any other breed of dog. In fact, they are often very gentle and loving with children. However, Rottweilers are also very protective of their families and can be aggressive towards strangers if they feel threatened and need extensive socialization as puppies. The Rottweiler is a robust working breed of great strength descended from the mastiffs of the Roman legions. A gentle playmate and protector within the family circle, the Rottie observes the outside world with a self-assured aloofness. A male Rottweiler will stand anywhere from 24 to 27 muscular inches at the shoulder; females run a bit smaller and lighter. The glistening, short black coat with smart rust markings add to the picture of imposing strength. A thickly muscled hindquarters powers the Rottie’s effortless trotting gait. A well-bred and properly raised Rottie will be calm and confident, courageous but not unduly aggressive. The aloof demeanor these world-class guardians present to outsiders belies the playfulness, and downright silliness, that endear Rotties to their loved ones. (No one told the Rottie he’s not a toy breed, so he is liable plop onto your lap for a cuddle.) Early training and socialization will harness a Rottie’s territorial instincts in a positive way.
