Our wish is that every rottweiler have a loving and nurturing life-time home. Towards that end we are staunch supporters of spay and neuter until such time as no rottweiler will ever be exploited because they are so plentiful. This site is brimming with educational material. Please make yourself at home and visit often.

If you'd like to adopt one of the dogs showcased on this page, please first read our adoption policy and contract and then fill in the online adoption application. To help ensure a smooth transition, before arriving to meet the dogs, please thoroughly read starting out right! and the training and books pages. There is valuable information on the health page, particularly the sections on the dangers of overvaccination and pet foods.

Please foster - save a life!

Referral Dogs Available for Adoption

( please click on the thumbnail to see the full-sized photo)

In addition to the dogs we have available for adoption, we are happy to provide a referral service for people who, for one reason or another, are forced to give up their pets. Since the referral dogs are not with us we have not personally met them or provided their veterinary care but can share with you the information we have been given by their current owners. We screen each application as thoroughly as we would for our dogs and can only process those applications with excellent veterinary references, and a securely fenced yard. Approved applications are then forwarded to the dog's owner who will make the final arrangements for the adoption of these wonderful animals!

If you're interested in utilizing our referral service we'd be pleased to put your dog's picture and story on our site to help them get the best home possible. Please email for a rehome form


Chloe's owner contacted us about rehoming Chloe - she wrote: "Hello im looking for a rescue center to take my Rottweiler and care for her. Her name is Chloe and she is 12yrs old. She is an inside dog and is really lazy! Please if you could contact me about taking her I would greatly appreciate it." Of course we couldn't refuse to help Chloe find a loving retirement home. As you can see from her photos, she plans to be around for a very long time. And she smiles! Chloe is great with other dogs and loves children. She has never been around cats but her owner is going to take her to meet a cat so we can learn if she is cat safe. To adopt Chloe and fill your heart with the very special love only a senior can bring, please email for an adoption application.


Jaiden is just a youngster at 10 months. His disabled owner was planning to train Jaiden to be a therapy dog. However she lost her job, and then she lost her home. Jaiden was facing the dismal prospect of being turned in to the local shelter when his luck changed and he found a wonderful foster home. Jaiden is learning all the things he missed out on as a puppy such as not chewing, being perfectly housebroken, walking on a leash without pulling and most importantly, how to feel safe and not worry about where he will be tomorrow. Jaiden was so grateful to be rescued that he doesn't like sharing his foster mom's attention with her dogs so a home with no other pets would be best for Jaiden. He'll reward you with all the love he has to give for the rest of his life. To adopt Jaiden, please email for an adoption application.


Tilly is a sweet 10 month old girl who was abandoned by her people. She was found by a good samaritan who has taken her to the vet for all her vaccines, heartworm test and prevention and Tilly will be having an ultrasound to see if she is already spayed. If not, she will be spayed and then she'll be all ready to join your family and be the best friend you ever had. Tilly is so sweet and eager to please that her foster mom wishes she could keep her ! To adopt Tilly, please email for an adoption application.
