Rottweiler puppies. Is there anything cuter? Unfortunately (or fortunately?) you can’t just buy ’em off the shelf at your local Wal-Mart.
And if there’s some guy selling puppies out in the parking lot… trust me, you don’t want any.
As an intelligent individual, your search for a new companion has most likely led you to the internet. You’ve probably noticed that there is a booming business of “mail order puppies” (for lack of a better term) online.
Which is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.
A search on Google reveals hundreds of web sites that will sell you a puppy, the same way you might buy a sweater online.
But buying a rottie puppy is an endeavor that requires time, persistence and effort. Exercising a little patience and research while searching for a puppy online will reward you a million times over. Trust me on this.

You better believe it.
Quality breeders care about who they’re placing their Rottweiler puppies with. It’s not uncommon for a breeder to ask you as many questions as you might ask them. A good breeder wants to make sure that the puppy is going to a good home. Especially with this breed, where the propensity to do damage if an owner isn’t 100% committed to the dog can be very high.
