When we have dogs that are available for adoption or need to be rehomed, we will place them here. Please note that we ask for a $500 adoption fee for each dog we place. The money we collect goes into the Rottweiler rescue fund and makes it possible for us to cover all medical expenses, when necessary, any training, rehabilitating, vaccinating, spaying/neutering, etc. No matter the time or cost involved, and irregardless of whether the pup/youth/adult is purebred or just in need, the adoption fee does not change. It is also important to note that, unless the Rottweiler is a pup/youth under the age of 6 months, we do not adopt out rescues to homes with small children. I love this breed with all my heart, but s/he will grow up to be a big, strong dog in mind and body. Without knowing both how the dog was bred and how s/he was raised, it is quite simply, a risk I will not take. It is not fair to the dog or the breed. In cases where behavior or training deficits are observed while undergoing rehabilitation here at Guardian Rottweilers that we fill are either ongoing or significant enough to warrant the need for continued professional training, we will not adopt him/her until a trainer has been solicited by adopter and we have had an opportunity to interview with said trainer to feel confident that s/he is willing and able to help. It is also important to understand that all adoptions are sold “as is”. In most cases, we have not bred nor raised the pup/youth/adult, and cannot guarantee anything that may have transpired when they were not under our care- we have no idea what s/he was fed, how s/he was trained/raised, etc. so it is always recommended that you be prepared to work with a trainer and/or only consider an adoption if you have the time and experience to do right by them. We will require an interview with all adoption cases just as we do with all our other placements, and we think this is ESPECIALLY critical for the dogs that are rescued as in most cases, they were dealt a terrible hand the first go around from an unworthy human. All of our rescues will come with a bag of food, treats, a toy, anything we think will help them transition to a new home and and any medications they have been on under our care.
If we do not have any rescues available right now, but please check back often or contact your local rescue or animal shelter. If you are unable to adopt, but would like to get involved, you can consider fostering, or donating, even if it is just time. Most of the pets at animal shelters do not get adequate attention/training, and most need it more than you can imagine- having already been failed at least once by humans.
Please consider contacting any of your local shelters and volunteering to walk dogs or play with kitties <3

Don’t close the door, don’t push me away
Why are you leaving? Don’t make me stay.
Slow down the car, I can’t keep up
This pavement is hot and my pads are cut.
I’ve got to quit running or my heart will pop
Every muscle is aching- why didn’t you stop?
I’m so hungry and thirsty; darkness is near
But I shouldn’t leave- he will come for me here
Several weeks have passed. I’m dead on my feet
They call me a nuisance because I eat off the streets
Every car that passes, I chase it to see
If it is my master coming for me
Though I approach those that come near
With trust in my eyes and no sign of fear
With hate in their voices and a cold, heartless stare
They threaten to kill me; they don’t even care
Batter my body with rocks that they throw
I will not leave- he will come, don’t you know.
Overtaken with weakness, my body is numb
I’m sick and so lonely. Oh please, let him come!
I will go back to where he first threw me out
I’ll wait for him there. He will come, no doubt
My thoughts are fading; my chest feels like lead
I’m sleepy, so sleepy. I can’t lift my head
It’s so quiet, so peaceful all remains still
There is my master at my home on the hill
Yes, I can see him! He’s calling my name
His voice is so gentle. His hands are the same
He decided he wants me. Things will be fine
I really do love him that master of mine.
My tail wags with pleasure. I can’t catch my breath
He came in my dreams; but so did my Death.
