Dog Collar Boutique - Dog Collars

We participate in the rewarding experience of rescue, adoption networking & rehoming spayed & neutered Rottweilers of all temperaments, personalities, sizes, shapes, energies, & of all ages. This gentle breed is getting an undeserved poor reputation because of a few careless, misguided owners, who through neglect, greed, abuse or poor and improper treatment teach these powerful dogs unacceptable behaviour. With proper care, a strong mind and gentle treatment the Rottweiler is one of the finest companion animals available; gentle, playful, protective, intelligent and loyal to the last breath.

They can be wonderful with the entire family and even make tender baby sitters if your toddler doesn't mind wet ROTTI KISSES!   Rotties learn to enjoy other animal friends both big and small, but everything requires training, adjustment and an investment of your time and energies.    Rottweilers were never intended to be the most popular dog in the United States, thankfully they've moved down considerably.   They are large, powerful, playful and can injure someone quite by accident or intention.  People sadly mistake some of the more boisterous behavior or barking as aggression, when normally it's just enthusiasm.  Rottweilers are very much oriented towards humans and will suffer if not included in family activities.   They are not a dog to be tied up and ignored in the back yard, that is cruel for any animal.

By nature and breed standard the Rottweiler is somewhat aloof initially, may not welcome overly familiar advances from strangers and may exhibit warning growls if handled improperly.   This is normal and we consider it unrealistic to expect anything different.    Dogs are dogs and they often behave like dogs.   When you first meet a new animal if you treat him with the same respect & distance that you would a human stranger you will go far in more quickly winning that animals interest & trust.   On the other hand it's unacceptable to be overly familiar, touchy, huggy or exhibit any of the other ludicrous behaviors included among many temperament tests.

Naturally, it's crucial to be reasonably certain whether a particular Rottweiler is going to blend with your family, environment, circumstances & expectations.  That's part of our Adoption process, to responsibly match you with the most appropriate Rottweiler for your particular environment, considering your energy level, how much time you have available, your personality, family activities, other animals and many factors......At times there may be several Rottweilers that would blend with your circumstances, other times we may not have a suitable Rott for you.  Our primary commitment, obligation and duty is to find each Rottweiler his exceptional home, our secondary rewards are the happy humans who love them, spoil them and share their stories & photos with us.


Depending on the individual dog and owner, ample opportunities exist to explore many exciting activities, such as tracking, herding, carting, schutzhund or agility, where these athletic dogs excel. Rotties make excellent professional search and rescue workers, have natural herding instincts, hold world cart pulling records and are compassionate, intuitive and obedient therapy dogs.   If you can think of it, your Rotti can learn it and enjoy many other sports and hobbies.  Be prepared for an animal that may rival if not surpass your intelligence & creativity...and that's not an insult!   It's a challenge that you must be prepared to meet if you want to welcome a Rotti into your family.

These dogs are bright, eager, goofy with sharp minds and are willing to learn and enjoy having a job to do, even if their job just means loving you.  All Rottweilers are black & various shades of mahogany or brown and the similarities end there.  If there was ever an individualistic animal, it is the Rottweiler. They are slightly stubborn, can develop  "selective"  hearing and are, at other times, quite capable of making you the focus of their attention.   If there is a squirrel that needs chasing, don't expect your Rotti to have 100% perfect recall, you will be acknowledged and then put on his  "to do"  list...when he's finished chasing that scent, he'll come trotting back to you.   Some Rotts are at the extreme energy range and GO GO GO, others just long to take a nap on the couch and have you bring them a cookie on your way by.....all of them are mouthers, kissers, cuddlers, talkers, and with very sensitive temperaments & sweet dispositions with feelings that can be easily damaged.  Some like playing with a ball or other doggy things, while others consider that mundane and unworthy of their pursuits.  We are not being anthropomorphic....we have learned amazing things from these wonderful creatures.  We are all related and connected by that same web.

Adopting your life long companion and faithful friend, is a wonderful opportunity and something you can feel good about supporting.  In multi million dollar  "shelter"  facilities, built and supported with your donations thousands of Rottweilers are slaughtered in every state.    Washington state "shelters" generally slaughter around 2,000 Rottweilers yearly. The Human Society admits to killing between six & nine million companion animals annually, nationwide.   Those numbers represent only  "adoptable"  animals ( most profitable ), not factoring in unadoptable  ( too old, too fat,  "aggressive"  those with medical needs, not cute enough etc).    If every animal that was killed in a shelter were counted as "adoptable" those numberswould explode dramatically.

We have become a nation that kills that which it considers surplus or inconvenient.    Many of these slaughtered animals including all the drugs used to kill them are sold to renderers by the pound, where they are worth more dead than alive. On kill days, many of the shelters have the USDA meat inspector stroll the aisles, estimating the health of the animals about to be massacred.   Don't you ever wonder what happens to the millions and millions of executed animals?    Many of these killed animals are sold to renderers and end up classified by the USDA as  "meat by products"  that may end up in inexpensive commercial dog foods.  Is it any wonder why our animals are dying younger and younger of cancer & other diseases?  Please consider this before y ou choose to surrender your animal or turn him into a shelter.   The odds of him surviving are not as good as they would have you believe.  Some shelters work diligently with rescue groups to save as many lives as possible, and we applaud their hard work, many others are little more than publically financed, highly profitable extermination centers.  Often the ones with the most money and the ones you're least likely to suspect are the ones with cooked books on their kill rates and do everything possible to alienate rescues.  Some even go so far to proclaim themselves virtually "no kill".....just remember how they arrive at those manipulated numbers.

Our adoption and rehoming process is something we take very seriously and is not a process to be rushed, nor are there short cuts to selecting a life long companion that blends with your lifestyle and environment.  We're selective, discriminating and are looking for exceptional homes.. Please consider your choices carefully and realistically.  We require an Adoption Application (link to the left )  with a letter of reference from your vet, a home and fence photos and check and completion of our adoption contract with a liquidated damage clause.  Donations are considered gifts and vary according to your ability, the minimum adoption donation is in the $200 range.  Your generosity is appreciated.

We hope you enjoy your visit and our site!

Natural Pet Care

Happy Tails neither breeds, boards nor sells Rottweilers and is NOT classified as a kennel, but rather as a private charitable rescue sanctuary shelter.  Your donations to Happy Tails Rescue are considered gifts and are not for value received.  All of the Rotties are homed with us, rehabilitated, fed, loved and nourished back to good physical, mental & spriritual health so that they may become ready for their exceptional new homes.  About half of the Rottweilers that come to us will remain in our Sanctuary.

Adoptions are by appointment only and after you've been approved for adoption.  For protection of the Rottweilers, our sanity and in order to minimize stressful or territorial reactions, all adoption appointments & surrenders are done at our office, or other neutral territory.  Your other indoor dogs are invited to attend & participate in the selection of your new family member!

Unannounced visitors are not appreciated and will not be accommodated.

The Rottweilers under our care are here because a human has somehow failed them in the past.  We're not interested in  "getting rid"  of these wonderful animals, our commitment to them is to attract a home that we feel best meets the needs of each individual dog.  Using the information provided, our goal is to suggest which Rotts could be potentially good blends with your lifestyle, energy, time, personalities and other animals.  It could be that there are several suitable dogs and other times there may not be any that we feel would be appropriate.
