I'm big and I'm beautiful Rottweiler weighing in at a fluffy, soft 85 pounds! I'll do anything for treats and love attention! I am currently on a diet to lose a few but I'm not picky with my food. I LOVE my belly rubs, a soft bed to lay on and toys, as you can see from my picture! I may be a senior girl, but I have a whole lotta love to give.

Other pets: I'd like to be the only queen in the home please!

Kids: I am well suited for older children who will be gentle with me.

Staff Testimonial: I know I shouldn't have a favorite but I do love Persephone! This big girl is my "gentle giant" with a sweet personality to match her size! Each time I pass her, she's there wiggling her behind and little nub tail, smiling up at me. I love our walks that always end with a belly rub and head and ear scratch. She'll nudge me to let me know not to stop, my sweet gentle giant!
-Susan Marino (Adoption specialist)

Ask to come see me today, you will not be disappointed. I'd make a loving companion to anyone looking for a giant teddy bear! I have been here for too long and I am ready to call your home my own.

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
