More About Rottweiler Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Duke

      rescue
      Breed: Rottweiler
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. Duke has Erlichia which is a tick borne illness. 3-4 weeks of Doxycycline should clear this up nicely. Duke has been at the shelter since August when picked up as a stray and has developed Demadex mange which is not contagious. I am sure this has been caused by stress with his long term housing at an overcrowded shelter. He will be available when he is healthy. In the meantime we will asses his dispostion and update his bios.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler. Please be advised that Penny is NOT in the possession of Big Sky Rottweiler Rescue and is being listed to help find a home for her. Penny is a 7 year old female Rottie in Flathead Shelter confiscated from her owner in Aug 2017 due to neglect. So far, good with male dogs, not as much with females, okay with kids. Suffering some kennel stress. Here is the shelters write up: My name is Penny. I am a 7 year old Rottie mix, weighing 70 pounds. I can be shy with people I don't know, so time and patience is requested. I seem ok with male dogs, and suggest a meet and greet. No canine gal friends or cats for me. Older kids would be best. My new home should have people with previous experience living with my type of dog. PS- without guidance, I might come up with rules you may not appreciate. Did I mention I love, love, love the green balls with feet on them! If you are interested in adopting this girl in need, please contact Flathead County Animal Shelter 225 Cemetery Road (1/4 mi. west of Hwy 93) Kalispell, MT 59901 P (406) 752-1310

      Ranger

      rescue
      Breed: Rottweiler
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler (short coat). Adoption Fee: 250.00. Hi, I'm Ranger. I was picked up as a stray and apparently had been on the streets for awhile. When they picked me up, I had kids crawling all over me. I am a very happy boy that loves everyone, even children. I love my foster Mom's grand kids, they like to chase me and that is fun and when they call, I come running to them, I just have to slow down enough as to not bowl them over with my exuberance. Since I had been a stray, I wasn't real keen on other dogs, but my foster Mom has taught me to have manners and if I forget, all she has to say is “Ranger” and I remember to be nice. (Honestly, I don't do anything but stare, then give a few barks, but she says that is NOT appropriate). I am a very happy boy and smile all the time. I love to get close and cuddle, have even learned to kiss. I am a favorite at the vets and everyone says I am adorable. I do have a weight problem, but my thyroid pills are helping and Mom says they are cheap. I love rolling around in the grass on my back with my legs wiggling straight in the air--makes my Mom laugh. I have been in rescue awhile and don't know why. Mom says beauty is only skin deep and just because I don't have that “traditional” Rottie look, people are passing me by. If they met me and my inner beauty, I would have a home today. While my Mom says I am doing great with other dogs, she would like to see me in a home all my own so I can give all my love, but I may be OK sharing that with a female, would have to meet her first.

      rescue
      Breed: Rottweiler-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 225.00. Hi, I am Neon and I love life. I am an active girl. I started out in CA as a stray. Somehow, I gravitated to an animal shelter and when they found me outside they wanted to catch me. I was afraid, but once they picked up a ball, I was theirs. I then got transferred to a shelter in ID where they adopted me out, but I was immediately taken to Petco and I was afraid and shut down, so the shelter had to come get me. The shelter, then decided I would do best in rescue. While waiting for transport, I did live in a house with another dog and did well, but I didn't want the other dog to play with my toys. Neon now loves to be loved on and it is better than balls. She lies down, rolls over for her loving, squints her eyes and smiles, if you go to stop, she puts her front feet around your hand. She looks like a little meerkat. I am also rubbing her hind end and she is starting to cha-cha. She is a very sweet girl, with the happiest tall I have ever seen. Neon is a very happy girl and LOVES to play with balls. She always presents herself with a toy and wants you to play with her, fetch is her game. She is treat motivated, but does not like other dogs to be thinking about taking her toys, but she no longer barks at them so is learning.

      Daisy

      rescue
      Breed: Rottweiler
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300.00. She’s in the purple collar. Here’s what the owner said about her: This is Daisy, she is 2 1/2 years old. I have had her since she was a baby, and she is a really good dog despite some problems. She is very hyper and energetic. She LOVES to play ball with her yellow tennis ball. She loves to run around and get treats. She does pretty good inside the house other than getting into the garbage from time to time. She is not a barker, she will only bark when she is trying to let you know something is going on. 2 of her main issues is she does not like smaller dogs. I’m not sure where this came from but she has tried to attack several small dogs including our pit bull when we first got her as a puppy. She is usually fine with the bigger ones, but the little ones for some reason she does not do well with. The second thing is she absolutely does not like kids. We had one close call with her and my friends toddler and one other episode just recently. We don’t know why she is this way, and it may be something that can be worked out. But neither one of us know how to fix this issue and with a baby of our own due any day now, we have just decided that it is not a risk we are willing to take with out newborn. It is a very serious thing and our biggest hope is that we can give her to someone that will take this as seriously as we do so there are no babies or kids that end up hurt by negligent people. She has been a part of our family for a long time and we just hope she can find a home that is suited well for her and most of all, love her. We are deeply saddened to see her go.
