Welcome to Rottweiler Rescue & Rehoming New Zealand.
Rottweilers were known in German as Rottweiler Metzgerhund, meaning Rottweil butchers’ dogs, because one of their uses was to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat to market. They are one of the oldest herding breeds with possible links back to the Roman Empire!
Rottweilers are now used as search and rescue dogs, as guide & therapy dogs, as guard dogs and police dogs. Of course more often than not they are part of our families, our best friends, loyal devoted guardians and the best ever pets!
Have a look through our fantastic website and immerse yourself into the world of the beautiful Rottweiler.
