UPDATE – THE FONZ HAS NOW FOUND AN EXCELLENT NEW HOME.
I just spoke with his new owners and they tell me he is settling in very well and they are thrilled to bits with him. Very soon they will commence attending an obedience club with him, although fonze is an obedient dog the activity will only serve to strengthen their bond and trust in a much faster manner.
A heartfelt congratulations to Joy Belles and the way she handled this matter – and also a heartfelt goodluck to Fonze and his new owners.
I received a call from my good friend Joy Belles last week. She had just received notification that one of the dogs that she had bred was surrendered at the lost dogs home and if I could help to bring him home.
Unfortunately the dog was not in good condition as can be seen from the photos, and despite that, he is happy, and very social; a testament to his excellent rottweiler character!! the dog is “Rotvel The Fonz”, and he holds a special place in my heart as he is the son of my old dog Rotvel Aussie Tzachmark.
I was fortunate enough to see this dog as a 6 weeks old puppy and he showed tremendous character from that early age. I also saw the dog some 18mths ago and again he displayed the excellent stable rottweiler character. Whilst he has obviously been mistreated along the way, he holds no grudges against humanity and is now looking for a loving home where he can be part of the family and live life to the fullest.
The Fonz is 5yrs old, de-sexed and will be brought back to excellent health by Joy. He will live with Joy until he is ready for his new home – just being back home has him on the right path to full recovery. He has been brought up with children and a normal family life however was rehomed due to a change in lifestyle circumstances.
The Fonz will make an excellent family companion, one that is both social but will react accordingly if his people are threatened. Updated photos of The Fonz will be posted as he recovers and gets back to his former self.
From my perspective, a huge congratulations to Joy for displaying the type of responsibility that makes for “A Grade” breeding/breeders. Joy is forever highlighting the responsibility that we as breeders have and the fact that it extends beyond which genetic combination is likely to produce, and I for one am happy to have Joy as one of my mentors. This is also a valuable lesson for microchipping.
