Purchasing a Von Evman Rottweiler

You will need to fill out the completely with as much information as you can. This will help us to select the best puppy for your personality and needs.

Pricing for SHOW QUALITY/BREEDABLE puppies cost $2,000.00 to $4,500.00 depending on the parent's bloodlines, titles, and age of the puppies. PET/NON-BREEDABLE Quality puppies will cost approximately $1,500.00.
We breed top quality bloodlines and always have a waiting list for our dogs. A $500.00 binder is required to get you on the waiting list for our dogs and goes towards the price of your puppy.
Yes, you can. We do not know how many puppies will be in an upcoming litter and if the puppies will be pet or show quality. The puppies will be graded during the first weeks and the quality and price decided, almost like a beauty and talent contest. Our goal is to breed top quality Rottweilers. Be sure to complete the Puppy Questionnaire and send in your binder to reserve a puppy. When puppies becomes available, we will go down the list of the people who have sent in the $500.00 binder, as they have first choice.
Yes, you sure can! You can come to visit with the parents and us, if the mothers are not with their puppies, and see the puppies. It is hard to evaluate a puppy before they are ready to go home since their looks, temperament, and character will change weekly. The puppies will be ready to go home at 8 weeks of age; this is Florida law. We, as breeders, start the evaluations as they grow and do the final evaluation at 8 weeks when the Veterinarian comes to give the health certifications and clearance. It is important to know that our litters are reserved quickly so if waiting to view, it is possible the entire litter might already be sold!
We accept appointments for people to come and visit on Saturdays. We own a large gift plant Nursery and must run that business during the week.
Yes! We certify the health on all of the Rottweilers we breed with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA). Our bloodline lives longer and has less genetic defects. Our 100% German bloodline does more winning than any other bloodline in the world so they are the correct look. Very few breeders worldwide can acclaim this.
General Rottweiler Questions
Pet Quality simply means that the dog has faults. These faults are generally cosmetic such as non-scissor bite, white spots on the chest or belly, missing teeth, top line not straight enough for showing, etc. These faults will not affect the health or temperament of the dog. A pet quality dog is not for breeding and it is required that the dog be spayed or neutered. Our pet quality dogs make good companions and often their faults are not detectable to anyone but the most experienced eyes.
Show Quality means the puppy has no faults according to the Rottweiler standard at 8 weeks of age. If you purchase a Show Quality puppy you can spay or neuter as you wish. We only require that you give your puppy a good, loving home.
We recommend that you spay at about 2 years old and females should go through a couple full heat cycles first. The longer you wait before spay or neutering your pet will lessen the chance of your Rottweiler getting cancer.
Research from Dr. David Waters DVM, PhD, head of the Gerald P. Murphy Cancer Foundation at Purdue University has proven that dogs spayed or neutered under the age of 1 year of age have a higher risk of cancer.
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. Plus you can see the temperament and how the Rottweiler is feeling by how he/she holds their tail. The docked tail is something of the past. America is the last country to change this. It is also important to note that dogs with cropped tails cannot be shown in most countries.
