Non-pet owners who like to visit & complain about our pets:
1. They live here, you don’t.
2. If you don’t want your face licked, keep it away from the dogs.
3. High-stepping in the yard to avoid land mines is good exercise.
4. I like my rotts better then most people, and if you’ve ever owned one, you would too.
5. To you they are dogs- to me, they are my family and would gladly, without a moment’s hesitation give their lives for us, would you?
6. Go ahead, YOU tell Diesel to move...
Please enjoy photo updates of Rottieopolis!! Yes it is out in the sticks, but is is filled with rotties 😉

I will always grab the phone if I am anywhere near it, and I even sleep with it right beside me. However, between daily training, working, grooming and caring for our Rottweilers (and other furred and feathered friends), meal prep, property maintenance, working with and socializing our pups, travel for working competitions, dog shows and training, as well as travel when we deliver all of our pups, and trying to squeeze in time to be a band mom and a soccer mom, I am RARELY by the phone. I usually do not stop moving long enough to listen to messages until late at night when everyone else 2 and 4 legged is already in bed. Unfortunately, it is difficult to return calls at 2:am. Because of this, we do not have an answering machine on our landline phone . (I know I am probably the last dinosaur to have a landline, but cell phones do not work out here in the sticks).
The best method to reach us is via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I can check emails during a timeout at a soccer game, as the dogs reset for training, and even while sitting with a mom in labor, as well as late at night when I have everyone else in bed and can finally sit down in front of the computer. Sometimes, especially if we have been traveling overseas, my inbox can get buried, so please feel free to send another email if I have not yet responded and please do not take a delayed response to equate that you are not important to us. I am just a mom who loves this breed and trying to do my best. I suppose if I was not so involved with my dogs, I would have more free time to talk on the phone and answer emails, but how can one not give everything they have and everything they are to do right by these special souls? My Rottweilers will defend my family and I until the last beat of their hearts, and I owe it to them to be worthy of that level of devotion.
If you have a medical emergency and I cannot be reached, please call your vet or mine,
Dr. Jeff Udrasols of Meridian Veterinary Clinic: 317-888-4405.
An interview is required before a puppy deposit will be accepted. Please understand that Guardian Rottweilers is family owned and operated with 4 children, so please limit phone calls after 9:pm except in cases of emergency. Interviews can be scheduled Monday through Saturday, however Sunday is for my Heavenly Father and my family. Please take a few moments to read our page titled “Rottweiler Facts” and our GR Puppy Contract before scheduling an interview to be sure a Rottweiler is the correct choice for you and your family, and we are the correct breeder for you..
When distance prohibits a trip, interviews can be conducted over the phone, however you must have a copy of the GR Puppy Contract. You may print this from our website, or we can mail one to you. If you have any questions regarding us or our breeding program, or would like to schedule and interview, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Courageous Guardians. Loyal Companions.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND BEFORE COMING OUT TO LOOK AT PUPPIES:
You will more than likely not be picking up a puppy. It is very rare for us to have puppies available at the time they are old enough to go home- they almost always are already spoken for by the families on the wait list at that time. On average, our wait list is 2-4 litters long before you find the exact puppy you are looking for- sex, character, drive, temperament, head type, conformation, quality, etc.
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HOLD/PET/INTERACT WITH OUR PUPPIES
If you come out to the property meanwhile we have newborn puppies on the ground or expectant moms, you will not be able to get the full tour. For the safety of our moms and pups, we cannot have unnecessary traffic in the nursery or puppy play areas. You will still be able to meet with and interact with other adult and youth dogs so that you have a good idea of the character, size and overall conformation we strive for and produce in our breeding program. If we have pups available when you come, depending on their age, you may be permitted to get a peek at them, but you will not be able to interact with them unless they are fully vaccinated, or you are picking your puppy up to go home. I understand that holding and playing with puppies is the absolute best thing on earth. However, if you are waiting on one of these puppies to go home with your family, I am sure you also would not want a parade of people with the potential for a plethora of pathogens handling your new family member meanwhile s/he is still young and immunocompromised and run the risk of your baby coming home to you with a potentially deadly disease. When we first started breeding more than 2 decades ago, we did not have such policies in place. We permitted everyone who came to visit to hold and interact with our puppies- after all, it is our favorite thing to do here too. Unfortunately, some of our puppies paid for that luxury with their lives.
We welcome visitors by appointment only to ROTTIEOPOLIS. We ask that if you will come out to visit our Rotties that you DO NOT visit other kennels/breeders prior to coming to our home. Not all breeders are as careful and sanitary with the living conditions or as thorough on deworming and vaccinations and we must be very careful with what is tracked into our newborn puppies and moms.
