Well, hello there, I'm Cooper! Don't let my age fool you, I have plenty of energy  and I have to say, I'm a pretty good boy. So why would you ever want one of those crazy younger punks :)

My original owner trained me well and I used to go to work with him every day when he worked construction. Once I trust you, I listen well and I know all the good commands: sit, stay, lay down, come, roll over, drop, and I love treats and take them nicely (my foster dad secretly tells me I'm better behaved then my foster sister).  I'm good off a leash, but in the city my foster dad keeps me on one because he says he can't trust the other four legged critters, but when I'm in the country I get to run free.

I get happy when my foster people come home, or it's time to go for walks. I will play with a squeeky ball for hours, and ohhhh boy, do I love to go for rides, but I'm also fine being told to chill out and lay down when you are sick of me nuzzling you for attention.

I grew up with an 8-year old. But I suppose I am too big for little ones who I might knock over or get crabby with them if they bug my while I'm sleeping.  I'm friendly with strangers if they let me meet them first and don't get all up in my business right when they meet me, but hey, I'm a Rottie and we like to make sure everybody is cool. After that, I've been know to stick my face in their lap so they pet me more.

I go on short jogs several times a week and it's so fun. I even have gone around something called Lake Calhoun a few times, and even downtown. It was so exciting.

I stay out in the house during the day while the humans are at work and I sleep on the floor in the bedroom at night.

I live with my foster sister and we get along ok, but she's kinda boring. This past week though we had another dog come hang out for awhile because her parents had something called a "baby". She is kinda pushy but at least she would play with me.

About A Rotta Love Plus

About Our Rescue Group...

A Rotta Love Plus is dedicated to the Rottweiler, APBT, AmStaff, and other non-traditional breeds. We are the oldest Rottweiler rescue in the state of Minnesota and the first non-profit Rottweiler Rescue in the state. (A Rotta Love and PitsPlus have merged as one!)

Rescue - We are here to rescue the unwanted and neglected Rottweilers and other non-traditional breeds that are surrendered to local animal shelters.
Re-Home - With the help of foster homes we evaluate and prepare the dogs to be re-homed with a loving family.
Educate - For those willing, we are here to educate on responsible ownership of these great breeds and what owning a dog (or dogs) is all about.

The Rottweiler, APBT, and many others have fallen victim to bad press and prejudice. A Rotta Love is THEIR VOICE. We are here to defend and protect these wonderful breeds.

Our Adoption Process...

Every dog adopted from A Rotta Love Plus goes to its new home spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped. We also provide a collar, leash and their favorite toy. We request a $300 donation for each dog to help us cover these costs and to assist us in rehoming other dogs.

If you are interested in one of the dogs you see here the first step is to fill out our online application which is available on our website or to give us a call.

If you don't see a dog here that fits your particular needs please give us a call anyway. We frequently have dogs on a waiting list or in other shelters. Let's us know what you are looking for and we can usually help you find the perfect dog for your situation. If you are looking to work with people that KNOW these breeds you've come to the right place. We've trained and competed with the Rottweiler for many years and placed over 300 dogs since 1997.
