Tess – Rottweiler – 9 years old.

Tess came to us because her family had a new baby and didn’t want her any more.

Tess is a shy girl and it does take a while to get to know you. So we would advise a good few of visits. Occasionally when playing Tess will let out the “rottie rumble” that we are all used to and know is fine and just her. Tess may very occasionally put her mouth around your wrist if she doesn’t want you to leave. She is soft mouthed and this could be misinterpreted with people who don’t have experience of the Rottweiler breed. We are asking that if you are interested in Tess we would like you to have plenty of dog experience. Tess really is a lovely girl and has the potential to be your very best loyal friend. Tess may be more protective towards one person. So no heated debates around her as this will upset Tess.This is something to bear in mind!

In general Tess is happy with her own company and loves a good sniff and trot around our paddock. She’s very affectionate and enjoys cuddles. Tess enjoys her visits to our office and receiving lots of teats and she’s always well behaved for us. Tess just needs that special person to make Tess’s personality shine.

Tess needs a special home for her to live out her twilight years. Tess is an ideal candidate for Long Term Fostering which means Tess gets to live in a loving home and Three Counties support all the vets’ fees at Burghley veterinary centre. More about fostering is on our website under the support us tab and you would need to live significantly nearer than our 50 mile drive radius for access to us and our vets.

Tess is also a Three Counties Sponsor Dog. If you would like to know what Tess has been getting up to and hear all about her life please click on the “Support Us” tab on the Home Page of our website and follow the instructions there.

Tess will prefer to be the only dog in the family. It may be a bit mind blowing if you have a busy household, so she would prefer a quieter one. Older children only who will respect her space initially 13 +.We re home in a 50 mile drive of Bourne Lincs. Appointment only.
