American Rottweiler Rescue
The American Rottweiler Club is made up of breeders who truly understand the needs and desires of this breed. These breeders are willing to share information and help each other out with American Rottweiler breed rescue groups. There are many different ways that you can find a good breeder or rescue group for your Rottweiler. You just need to know where to look.
Your local AKC chapter should be able to help you locate local American Rottweiler rescue groups and clubs. If you know of a local club, take some time to visit the club’s website to learn more about it and what it offers its members. Many times these breeders and rescue organizations will have websites as well that you can visit to learn all of the information that you need.
If you don’t have a local club in your area, you still have a few options. One way is to look in the National Animal Registry. This registry is run by the National Kennel Club and is a great resource for finding all types of animal rescue groups and breeders. It contains information on all types of animals including Rottweilers.
Another option would be to ask around. Talk to other Rottweiler owners to see if they might be able to help you.
Ask them if they know of any good breeders or rescue organizations. Most owners would love to help a fellow owner who is having a hard time caring for their dog. Even owners with dogs who seem like they could be a little trouble, still love them and want to do anything possible to help them. Chances are that you will be able to talk to at least one owner who can help you.
If all else fails, visit your local vet. While it’s not a good idea to immediately try and adopt a dog from the vet, it is perfectly okay to do so during your research. Many times the problem is in the obedience training or grooming of the dog. Ask the vet about specific breeds and what the odds are of that dog having an issue in these areas. If there are multiple issues, that could mean that the Rottweiler is not a good breed, to begin with, and needs to be re-educated or rescued.
There are several Rottweiler rescue groups throughout the United States. Visit each rescue group and find out which ones are located in your area. Once you find one that you are interested in joining, contact the group or owners and arrange for an interview. Get to know the staff a little bit before signing on the dotted line.
Once you’ve signed on the dotted line, be sure to visit the facility a few times to see how the dogs are being taken care of.
Ask about the American Rottweiler breeders, the vet, and any other questions that you may have. Check the list of puppies available to see if there are any mixed breeds as well as German shepherds and Dobermans. Also, ask about the time of day that the center will be open to help you evaluate if the shelter is accommodating to your schedule.
Once you’ve decided on a few dogs that seem like a good match for you and your lifestyle, contact the American Rottweiler rescue to further fill out your paperwork and meet other dogs in the future. You can’t make an informed decision until you understand all the facts and meet the entire spectrum of Rottweilers. Don’t rely solely on pictures and basic information. Get to know the dog first and become familiar with its daily routine. You’ll be glad that you did.
