Looking for Rottweiler puppies

Good evening!

We've just moved on island and are looking for a puppy - I would prefer a Rottweiler because we've had one in the past, but I'm open. If anyone knows of a pure bred litter of large dogs please let me know.

Thank you!

There's a beautiful full bred Rottie female at the shelter right now. Her name is Phoenix. Very sweet, well trained, 4 years old and would LOVE a family!! smiling

Please don't buy a dog from an owner/breeder when so many are waiting for forever homes at your local shelter and face euthanasia without being given a second chance!

We were just at the shelter today and there are lost of great dogs there! There are a few shepherd mixes as well as some large terrier mixes. I asked about Rottweilers but she said they don't have any right now - maybe we just missed it. We will go back this week and see them all again and probably take one home.

Also, I was very impressed with the shelter. The kennels are clean and the workers were very kind and helpful. There are a lot of dogs there and its definitely a great place to look!

And don't have any children either, since there are so many awaiting adoption. excited

We know of a 3 year old Rottie that needs a good home. Great dog, but chases cats.

I know where you can get cute puppies, black & brown crucian mix, if you can not find a pure rotty.

What went down in the Facebook public group, What's going on St. Thomas? because certain people were looking for pure breed dogs or selling pure breed dogs was absolutely terrible. It got ugly, nasty, and even to the point of being racist sad

Please don't turn this message board into what happened in that group. Keep your own agendas to yourself and respect the OP's request.

Thanks for this. I know I'm not the only one who lurks but is somewhat afraid to post because of backlash and unsolicited, negative opinion. I don't mind debate and I'm here asking questions so I'm not offended.

We are open to any dog of course but would love a Rottie, I don't need to apologize for that. We have a domestic cat, so a large dog that we could raise from a puppy would be ideal.

Also, I have 3 adopted children.

Wasn't trying to bash anyone, BellasMom.
Just hoping shelter pups would be given a hope of a loving home instead of destruction. Pure bred dogs can tend to have more genetic and health issues. Hope you find what you want.
