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.

We do not adopt outside midMichigan - to locate a rottweiler rescue in your area please visit our rott rescue links page.

Please foster - save a life!

Rottweilers 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 these dogs are not with us we have not personally provided their veterinary care but can share with you the information we have been given by their current owners.

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.


Bruno is a 3 year old, 125 pound, purebred Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog who was turned into the shelter because his owner could no longer afford to care for him. This big fellow is unbelievably sweet, calm, well mannered and a true pleasure to be around. He's a very kind and gentle dog who will let anyone take food, bones, toys out of his mouth with no problem. Bruno loves to ride in the car, very calmly looking out the window. He especially loves going for long walks and playing with his frisbee, with his balls and with the hose spray! Bruno's a very good boy in the house - housebroken and completely nondestructive and he would never think of digging holes in the yard or chewing your landscaping. Bruno is a very affectionate, people oriented dog who wants to be right by you. Bruno is looking for a special family - with no other pets - to love, to play with, and to share the rest of his life with.

To adopt Bruno please email for an application.
