Adopt Me: Rubble is clumsy yet lovable

He came to the shelter with a hind leg injury

CityNews Halifax, in partnership with the Dartmouth SPCA, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Rottweiler (~40kgs)
~8 months old
Suitable for children 16+
No cats/ small animals

Rubble is hoping to steal the hearts of many but especially of someone to take him home just in time for valentines day! This lovable boy came into our care with a hind leg injury which needed to be amputated. He is slowly learning his way with three legs but as he is still young he can be rather clumsy! Rubble does display some food guarding - this behaviour is manageable given the right resources. With a hard start to life Rubble is still working on basic obedience but he is eager to please! He loves meeting people and cannot wait to see what his full potential has in store for him.

Rubble is available for adoption from the Dartmouth SPCA. Please contact us at 468-7877 Option 6 for more information or at

You can drop by the shelter anytime during our business hours to meet adoptable dogs. We do not accept online applications at this time.
