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!


  Buddy is a big guy (110-115lbs),  about 3 years old and a happy boy. He is affectionate and loves to snuggle. He is housebroken and content to play with his toys (tough ones!!) Buddy loves to go for long walks and take time out to check out all the new smells along the way. Buddy would do fine with another female medium or large dog since he has grown up with living with his litter mate brother and they play well together. Buddy prefers a home with no small dogs and no cats, children should be over 12 years old. Buddy is happy in his foster home, but would love to have a family of his own. To adopt Buddy please email for an adoption application.


  Bleu, 3 years old, is a big boy about 115 lbs. He is housebroken and good in the house where he loves to play tug with his people.....he lets them win sometimes so they will throw his toy for him to chase! He loves long walks where he can take in all the smells.  He plays well with female medium to large dogs. Bleu prefers a home without small dogs, with no cats, and with children over the age of 12. Bleu shares his foster home with his brother and although they are loved and love being there Bleu would love to find a family of his very own. To adopt Blue please email for an adoption application.

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 but prefers a home with no cats. To adopt Chloe and fill your heart with the very special love only a senior can bring, please email for an adoption application.
