Never purchase a puppy from anywhere if the parents do not have OFA hips, elbows, eyes, heart certifications to insure your future puppy's health!
Look below to see what proper OFA certifications look like
Hip Dysplasia – The most common cause of rear end lameness in the dog. Hip dysplasia is a partially inheritable condition. Normal dogs can produce dysplastic offspring. Dysplastic dogs can be asymptomatic. Dysplastic dogs can produce normal offspring. The most certain thing about this condition is, that in its most severe form, it is devastating for both dog and owner. The OFA offers certification to show if the dog displays evidence of hip dysplasia or not.
Elbows – Elbow dysplasia is a general term used to identify an inherited polygenic disease in the elbow of dogs. The OFA offers certification to show if the dog displays evidence of elbow dysplasia or not.
ED- No indication of Elbow Dysplasia

CERF (Eyes) – Canine Eye Registration Foundation. This organization evaluates and certifies dogs to be free of heritable eye disease, such as Progressive retinal atrophy. They also research and collect data to better understand the diseases and work to eliminate heritable eye disease in all purebred dogs.
Heart – Rottweilers can suffer from congenital heart disease. The most common cause is developmental defects. This includes aortic stenosis and pulmonary stenosis. If the defect is severe, most dogs will die under one year of age. Heart defects can be hereditary. You can check with your vet as Heart screening is available.

Do not trust any country's health certifications other than Germany. Too many fake and forged certifications from all countries other than Germany.
Patella – The patella, or kneecap, is part of the stifle joint (knee). In patellar luxation, the kneecap luxates, or pops out of place, either in a medial or lateral position. The OFA offers certification to show if the dog displays evidence of patellar luxation or not.
Juvenile Laryngeal Paralysis & Polyneuropathy - Jlpp is a fatal degenerative hereditary disease that kills all affected puppies by a year old (a few may live longer with great dedication and intensive care by their owners but it is not easy and the complications are great.) The OFA offers certification to show if the dog displays evidence of JLPP or not.
N/N which is clear no JLPP gene
N/M which means one clear gene and one JLPP gene. The dog is totally healthy but if bred must only be bred to clear dogs so no affected pups are born
M/M is JLPP affected and they die by a year usually much younger

All other must pay tax no exceptions.
The Department of Revenue knows how many litters of puppies a breeder sells so there is no way to get around it. Many Breeders that have not send in their sales tax has been fined and charged interest. All breeders MUST charge sales tax. You can read Statute 12A- 1.049 that requires all breeders to charge sales tax on the purchase of a puppy. Even if you are coming and bringing your puppy home to another state, anything purchased in the state of Florida must include sales tax. You can read the statute on the internet to get better understanding.
We also will have depending on what other items you will buy from us about 375.00+ worth of other items. This purchase will assist you with the puppy not spending thousands of dollars going to the Veterinarian on unnecessary care and purchases and exposing the puppy of Viruses and disease that is in your veterinarian's clinic. We will give you a first aid kit list that you should have for the puppy at home so if you have any concerns, we can assist you on how to care for your puppy. Most everything can be purchased at the local drug store.
Your puppy will be Micro chipped before you take it home & we will send the puppy papers to AKC, Registering the puppy and the microchip with AKC Reunite. The cost is cheaper and less complicating for us to do it than you.
You will receive the AKC papers on the puppy. (Make sure before you come you have a name that starts with the letter the litter is. You can find this on the website under puppies for sale and you can view what Letter your puppy's name must start with)
If you are flying in, you will need a large over-the-shoulder soft kennel to accommodate a puppy of about 20 pounds. The size is 19 in x 11.75 in x 11.5 in. We have them for sale if you cannot locate one or do not know what size to buy. PLEASE do not buy any smaller kennel since the airlines will not approve the puppy to travel in a carrier too small for your puppy.
You also want to buy a small cooler that fits in a purse or a carry on which is called "insulin travel case." It has a cooler inside to carry the puppy's vaccines. This cooler is the size like an eyeglass holder. We will supply you with the vaccines your puppy will need till it is 6 months of age. This will prevent having to take your puppy to the vets until your puppy is older and can take all the bacteria and viruses and diseases inside a Veterinarian Clinic. Remember this is a little baby and cannot be exposed to any virus or bacteria for chances of the puppy getting very sick from contracting something from the Vets clinic.
If you are driving in a vehicle, please bring a larger cooler. We will sell you a tub of ground beefalo meat mixture with beef, tripe, liver, heart, & stomach that the puppy needs to be eating alongside the pro-pac. It is healthier and cleaner than buying anything from the grocery store since we raise the beefalos on the property.
The puppy will go home with a leash a collar, so you do not have to bring one.
If you are flying home, there is a Cell parking before you get in the Orlando terminal. Park there and walk your puppy to relieve themselves before you go to the terminal. Car rental return is on the 1st floor of the terminal parking where you will walk to your airline check-in after you return your car.
The address where you are coming is below. Type in Eve's Garden on the google search. Pull in and follow the signs to the right to Eve's Garden customer parking lot you will see before the glass doors used to enter. Then you walk into the front of the building through the glass doors. Someone will greet you and get your name. Do not park in the front of the building since that is a driveway and people frequently pass through. The parking is before the glass doors.
There is an interesting book that one of my puppy owners gave me. It has a lot of interesting positive approaches to raising a puppy. The name of it is BEFORE & AFTER GETTING YOUR PUPPY by DR. IAN DUNBAR.
Let us know if you have any further questions. We are here to make this visit and the purchase of your new puppy a pleasurable journey. I will always be available for any questions you may have with your new family member.
Your puppy will be happy being with you so you do not need to think the puppy will be going through any stress. We do give you a beefalo bone to put into the soft-sided luggage pet carrier so the puppy will focus on the bone and not what is going on all around them.
You need to book the puppy to be on the plane with you in advance so when you book your flight then make sure you let the airlines know you are booking a puppy to go ON the plane with you. You will be provided by us a health certificate. One for you to keep which is the original and the other is a copy for the airlines to keep. The health certificate must be within 10 days of flying so we will make sure with you the planning on your arrival that the health certificate is within 10 days of your travel.
If you are driving to us in a vehicle, we do not recommend your puppy being in a crate unless there will be 2 puppies traveling or someone is next to the puppy talking and singing to it. If you put it in the crate right away and not comforted by anyone or another pet then this will produce a dog that will be afraid and emotional to drive in a car and will remember this experience through its life. The first experience in the automobile should be a positive and joyful one. Have someone hold your new puppy in the arms or make a place next to you as you drive for the puppy but make sure it does not interrupt your safe driving. If you are driving alone then you can play music loud and sing along; your puppy will think your singing is great and will be comforted by it.
You want to always have a first aid kit for your pets. Here are some items that should be in it. Activated charcoal (in case the dog eats something it should not), Pepto Bimal (to settle a stomach) Robitussin, Diaper rash ointment with Zinc oxide (to use on any rash or skin infections, Triple antibiotic ointment, Neosporin, Hydrogen peroxide, Alcohol, Thermometer(rectal), gauze pads and rolls. Sport adhesive tape or vet wrap. Thermal foil blanket, ice packs, Karo Syrup, Pedialyte, Q-Tips. Sterile saline for the eyes. "Optixcare Eye Lube Plus" ointment; Optixcare wipes (in case your puppy gets dirt in its eyes) can be purchased on Amazon.
We do not dock our tails. It is no longer allowed in all countries. Findings have shown that it is not healthy to crop the tails and is also cruel to the animals. We follow, as everyone should, the mother country of our breed which the German standard for the Rottweiler breed where it is against the law to crop a tail. The Rottweiler needs the tail for better movement and balance. It is also important to note that dogs with cropped tails cannot be shown in most countries.
Evidence indicates that puppies have similar sensitivity to pain as adult dogs. Docking a puppy’s tail involves cutting through muscles, tendons, up to seven pairs of highly sensitive nerves and severing bone and cartilage connections. Tail docking is usually carried out without any anaesthesia or analgesia (pain relief). Puppies give repeated intense shrieking vocalisations the moment the tail is cut off and during stitching of the wound, indicating that they experience substantial pain. Inflammation and damage to the tissues also cause ongoing pain while the wound heals. There is also the risk of infection or other complications associated with this unnecessary surgery.
Tail docking can also cause unnecessary and avoidable long term chronic pain and distress to the dog. For example, when a chronic neuroma forms at the amputation site. Neuromas are often very painful.
The dog’s tail serves a critically important role in canine social behaviour. The tail is a major communication tool between dogs. The tail’s position and movement can indicate friendliness, a desire to play, submission or a warning signal, among many other messages. Thus the tail also serves as a protective mechanism for dogs, part of the various strategies employed by dogs to communicate with one another; establish boundaries and to avert aggressive encounters.
The tail also communicates important messages to humans during human-dog interactions. The action of the tail can help humans to interpret a dog’s body language and to determine what sort of interaction is appropriate for a particular dog. Thus the tail plays an important role in public health and safety.
Removing the tail impairs a dog’s ability to communicate properly, leaving them highly vulnerable to being misunderstood by other dogs and humans and placing them at a distinct social disadvantage. The docked tail is something of the past. America is the last country to change this maniac tradition.
