Dogs needing to be rehomed
It is our policy to consider each rehoming request
that comes to us on its own merits regardless of age or
circumstances as we rehome puppies to oldies, although the older dog is more difficult to rehome. Due to
funds, available kennel spaces and the number of dogs
looking for new homes it means we are normally full and are
just not able to help every Rottie. Our dogs are cared
for in kennels, but we try to foster puppies or young dogs.
Please note that we cannot rehome dogs that have been
aggressive or have shown aggressive responses. If you
have a temperament or aggression problem and you would like
our help with regards to training and/or managing the
problem we are happy for you to telephone our behaviourist
on 01732 841082 or email us with a query which we will
endeavour to answer. If you have serious concerns
about your dog's temperament we recommend you discuss this
with your veterinary surgeon. If we take in a dog for rehoming that displays aggression whilst in our care we will
discuss the dog's future with our behaviourist and vet.

All of us at the RWA support any
petitions that try to stop the over breeding and
irresponsible ownership of dogs and therefore, hopefully
putting a stop to the endless cruelty that it brings.
Please join us, and many others, and support the
petitioning for three things:-
1. To enforce tighter restrictions on breeding.
2. To put in place the ability to track a dog's past &
3. To stop the sale of dogs on the internet immediately.
You can see detailed information for each section via the
