Atlas 'was the best big brother!'

We asked to see other Rottweilers from a litter of 10 purebred pups whose first birthday is today, and we received a few updates that we are posting. 

This is Atlas. Happy birthday, Atlas!

Atlas’s family told us: “Atlas is the perfect addition to our family. We unfortunately lost our older Rottweiler shortly after adopting him. I genuinely believe he held on until he could pass his Rottweiler skills down to this pup.

“Atlas lives with four dog siblings and four cats. Nova is also a Clinton County alum!

“He is already over 100 pounds and is the sweetest puppy! Atlas also experienced his first foster puppy and was the best big brother! We are so lucky to have this boy.”

Thank you for adopting Atlas from the Clinton County Humane Society! 

The rotties had come to the humane society from a person who bred them on purpose but who was then unable to care for them. 

Through our shelter’s “Project Abigail,” we were able to take the puppies, get them spayed/neutered and have them vaccinated, and find loving homes for all of them — as well as spaying/neutering the puppies’ parents so that we could stop the cycle of unwanted litters.
