There are so many of these wonderful dogs just waiting to find their new ‘forever’ homes.

Most of the time Rottweilers are surrendered, abandoned or rejected for reasons that they are in no way to be blamed for.

Owners have a whole host of reasons why they can no longer keep their pets, some of the most common being…

  • Owners moving home
  • Landlord problems
  • Can’t afford the dog anymore
  • Divorce
  • New baby
  • Behavior problems (housebreaking issues, barking, can’t train etc.)
  • Dog is ill

……. sadly this list could go on and on


Rottweiler Rescue Organizations

Luckily there are Rottweiler Rescue Groups all over the US (and in many other countries too) that devote themselves to finding the right homes for as many homeless Rotties as possible.

These Rottie Rescue Organizations are usually run as charitable enterprises and are staffed by teams of dedicated volunteers.

If you’re interested in Rottweiler adoption in a specific US State/area, check out my Rottweiler Rescue Groups page to find information and contact details for many of these organizations.

You can also learn more about what to expect during the adoption process, what you may be asked, and what questions you need to get answered, by checkiing out my Rottweiler Rescue page.


Rottweilers Available For Adoption

Here is a selection of just some of the Rottweilers available for adoption right now.

Many of them are adult or older dogs, but there are also often a few adolescents and puppies too.

There are lots of Rotties featured!

Please use the scroll bars on the Petfinder widget…. there are several pages of Rotties all waiting for a loving home. Scroll all the way to the bottom to see the links to the following/previous pages!

Don’t be too ‘set’ on adopting a Rottweiler puppy, as you may find that one of the older dogs is just what you’re looking for.

There are actually a lot of positive reasons to adopt a mature dog – including the fact that they may well be housebroken, at least partly leash trained or obedience trained, have passed the ‘chewing’ stage and so on.

Please take your time to look at each of the Rottweiler adoption profiles, and visit the website of Rottweiler Rescue Group who is responsible for that dog.

Taking the time to find the right dog for you, your family and your situation is a big step towards building a long, happy and loving relationship with your new dog.

Good luck, I hope you find the perfect Rottie for your family!
