Meet Sabre

Meet Sabre – a one of a kind eleven year old Rottweiler who came into BCFS’ Foster Care Program in January.

Sabre looks amazing compared to when she came in. She doesn't look 11 years old, she looks and moves like a young dog. Sabre was rescued from a bad situation and is doing well in foster care; she's put on a great deal of muscle and has relaxed so much.

Sabre has learned to trust and love again. She's a beautiful soul who loves people, especially older men, and is safe with children. She’ll be happy in a house, farm or condo as long as she has you and you’ll never lack for that old fashioned rottie love – you know exactly what we mean to those who know the breed. As long as her life has some level of consistency, something she can really count on, she’ll be happy as long as she lives with her people.

Sabre gets along well now with the other dogs in her foster home, but is generally very dog aggressive with other dogs and will be for a long time unless extensive behavioural training occurs. She can be convinced to love other dogs but would need a dog-savvy family with a great deal of experience to help her enjoy the companionship of other dogs. We recommend that Sabre is adopted into a home without other animals.

Sabre still has a bit of anxiety in new situations, but is fine by herself without any separation anxiety. She's completely house-trained but not good on a leash, and she doesn't like the cold.

Sabre will see her vet in May to update her vaccinations and get a heartworm test. The ear infections she had on her arrival are now under control on a fish diet. They seem to have been due to a food allergy.

When Sabre was spayed they found a large tumour on her ovary and it was a lifesaver that we spayed an 11 year old dog. Several mammary tumours were removed and one was found to be cancer, but they excised it with a solid margin. We can't promise it won't come back, but spaying reduces the chances of cancer by 50%.

This senior girl has a lot of love to give, and her new family will be the lucky ones!

If you’re a savvy dog-lover without other animals in your home and able to give Sabre the love and care she deserves, please visit our website at: to download and fill out an adoption application. When completed, email it to our Adoptions Coordinator Silvana at:
