ROTTIE OF THE MONTH
THADDEUS
Thad was the first dog adopted in 2010! This is amazing considering thatwhen we first got him he was referr 
ed to as the “walking dead dog”
.
 
NCRRreceived a phone call from one of the local shelters asking if we would helpwith a young male Rottweiler dog that was in pretty bad shape. He wascovered in demodex mange, skin infection from the mange, upper respiratory infection, eye problems and hip problems. NCRR jumped intoaction and was able to help with the grace of god providing him with aRottie Angel to help with his medical bills. All his Angel asked was he benamed Thaddeus after her grandfather and of course we said yes and weall love the name. One of the shelter workers took him to the vet for us tobe evaluated and start his treatment for demodex mange. The vet relayedhe has a 50/50 chance and wasn't put together very well. Did we want tohave him put to sleep? Well, we decided to give him that 50% and continuehelping him. He was transported to his foster home on the evening of Friday, March 27, 2009. He had gushing snot coming out of his nose andeyes. He could not stand up and was a sight for sore eyes with a bleedinghole in the side of his head. He was the picture of a walking dead dog.
CONGRATULATIONS THADDEUS ON YOUR NEW HOME ANDFAMILY.
North Carolina Rottweiler Rescue is the only non-profit Rottweiler Rescue Organization based out of Raleigh, NC that has beenrescuing Rottweiler dogs since 1998. NCRR is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to saving the lives of homeless Rottweilersand placing them in qualified homes. Note: We often have other 
breeds available so, even if you’re no
t interested in a Rottie, please check out our   Adopt Me  page on our website: ncrottierescue.org.
In 2009 NCRR found forever homes for 65 of our dogs and wecurrently have 56 in foster homes.
 
We are currently recruiting for Miracle Makers to make aNCRR foster dog's dreams come true (foster homes andvolunteers). NCRR -- like most rescue groups -- dependsentirely on its volunteers to carry out the mission of theRescue. As short as we are on funding, we're even shorter onhelp. One thing we'll never be short on, though, is dogs whoneed our help.
 
Our Volunteers are the shooting stars that make RottieDreams Come True!The ways you can help our mission are endless. See the list of ways you can help below. If you do not see something thatworks for you, please contact NCRR to discuss other optionsthat will work for you.
