Hey everyone any help is appreciated. Sadly Edmond Rott is done in Canada. I’d love a breeder like them that has history and great track record.
Love what you said about rescue Rotties. We are on our third with other breeds in between and LOVE the rotts. Our latest is 4 years old and she was raised with love. Her mid age owner passed away suddenly, and she was fostered for short time until a chance encounter and she is now our canine daughter. We love her to the moon and back. Rotts do have their own behaviors as you knowThis is a very educational conversation, and I've enjoyed following it, but now I'm going to butt in. I have had Rotts for about 25 years. Previous Rotts were always acquired from good breeders as pups. When my last pup died from an immune disorder at the age of 3, my husband and I decided that, at our age, raising a Rott puppy was too much work for all the reasons BBD has stated in the posts. I never though I would accept a rescued Rott because of not knowing the dog's background, but I really missed having a Rottweiler in my life. I began to look at available young adult dogs in a 4 state area, and finally found Lizzie. She was being fostered with a rescue group in another state and had been evaluated by them. They said she was calm and sweet, appeared to be housebroken and was 2-3 years old. I brought her home last January. She is wonderful. She moved right in like this had been her home forever. She even likes our elderly shih-tzu. We are both crazy about her. I told you all that to tell you this: never say NEVER to a rescued Rottweiler. They need love and a home as much as, or more than, a pup. Just my $.02 worth.
