According to the FCI Standard, the Rottweiler is good-natured, placid in basic disposition, very devoted, obedient, biddable and eager to work. Their appearance is natural and rustic, their behaviour self-assured, steady and fearless. They react to their surroundings with great alertness. Rottweilers are a powerful breed with well-developed genetic herding and guarding instincts.

The Rottweiler is one of the oldest of herding breeds. With a history possibly dating back to the Roman Empire, the Rottweiler may be a descendant of ancient Roman drover dogs; a mastiff-type dog that was a dependable, rugged dog with great intelligence and guarding instincts. During their quest to conquer Europe, the Roman legion traveled in large numbers across the continent. The non-existence of refrigeration meant the soldiers had to bring herds of cattle with them on their excursions for food. These drover dogs were not only used to keep the herds of cattle together, but to guard the supply stock at night.



Black with distinctive rust or mahogany markings



The coat consists of an outer coat and an undercoat. The outer coat is of medium length, coarse, dense and flat. The undercoat should be present on the neck and thighs. The undercoat must not show through the outer coat.

Health Issues

Rottweilers are a relatively healthy, disease-free breed. As with most large breeds, hip dysplasia can be a problem. For this reason the various Rottweiler breed clubs have had x-ray testing regimes in place for many years.

Living Environment

It’s important for the Rottweiler to receive daily exercise and mental challenges as well. A home with a fenced yard is ideal, but the dog should not be left alone in the yard. This dog can become overly territorial or aggressive to people entering the yard.

Puppy Select Finds Your Dream Puppy
ready for you to adopt!


Why Choose Puppy Select?

We, as a family, have always been dog owners. We have owned many breeds of dog and have had many champions; even world champion dogs from Europe and elsewhere. Not only conformation competitions but also were highly involved with working dogs. We even had a schutzhund club that would meet at our property several days per week.

We are an American-based company that has traveled across the continents to find quality dogs for our many customers, as well as for myself. We have a qualified dog finding team that works extensively across Europe, North America, and South America to find the perfect puppy for you. Our mission is to bring you a quality puppy that has been hand selected by members of our staff. Our staff is composed of FCI judges across the continents that inspect each puppy, and then licensed veterinarians inspect your puppy again. Our puppies will never come out of puppy mills like so many other internet companies or pet stores. We take the stress out of your puppy search and purchase.

Do you have to qualify to purchase one of our dogs?

The answer is no! It is our desire that everyone who wants a pet should have one. This is one of the reasons that we started this business. Nothing is more frustrating than purchasing a quality dog, then to be controlled by a breeder and their contract. If you purchase our puppies, you may or may not breed your dog, you may or may not show your dog as you wish. You will receive a full pedigree. We do however, reserve the right to act in the best interest of our puppies, and reserve the right to refuse service to a potential buyer.

Do you offer a Health Guarantee?

Yes. We offer a health guarantee for all puppies. Please see the terms and conditions under our Purchase/Health Guarantee Contract. All buyers must sign the agreement with our terms and conditions prior to purchase.

What does it mean if the puppy has a champion sire or dam?

Sire means that the father of your dog is a champion. Dam means that the mother if your dog is a champion. If it says “champion lines” it means that one or more of their ancestors were or are champions. Basically, you are getting a puppy that is a representation of the breed with good, solid bloodlines.
