Everything about you guys were awesome you guys were there every step of the way to get my new puppy. I love my puppy.
The Rottweiler breed is a popular family guardian and friend. Pet parents with an active lifestyle will find a faithful, loving, and intelligent friend for life with a Rottweiler. Novice pet parents should beware, however, as these purebreds are strong and intense and require focused care and obedience training while young.
The Rottweiler is a German breed that was originally created to drive cattle. Due to their muscular stature, they were later used to help pull butcher carts around town. Modern-day Rottweilers are often just good family companions, though they're still used regularly on the police force and in the U.S. Military.
Most male Rottweilers stand between 24-27 inches at the shoulder, while the females are typically a little smaller. Their muscular frame can make them intimidating, but with proper socialization and obedience training, these dogs make fantastic family friends and great watchdogs. Providing your Rottweiler with leadership that he can respect without using physical force is important; otherwise, he may take the role as alpha, and your ability to control them will be diminished.
Rottweilers are fantastic pets and companions, but they aren't for everyone. This breed has gained an unnecessarily bad reputation, which means you will likely deal with people who don't understand how friendly and social Rottweilers can be. There are even cities that have banned the breed altogether. If you choose to raise a Rottweiler, do your best to redeem the reputation of the breed by training your dog to be obedient and respect people.
How dog-friendly is Wisconsin?
Wisconsin is a beautiful place to live, and overall a safe and healthy place for pets. The state polls pretty differently across different studies, mostly because it has room for improvement in its animal welfare laws. Let’s look at a few leading studies to get a clearer picture of Wisconsin's pet scene.
Pawsafe is an animal advocacy group that helps pet-lovers evaluate the best places to live. They released a study ranking every state by several pet-safety and pet-friendly factors, including pet-friendly services and accommodations, animal cruelty laws, and the number of hiking trails and dog parks.
In their study, Wisconsin is ranked as the 31st most pet-friendly state. The state did not score well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Another site that ranks states according to various safety measures was a bit more positive toward Wisconsin, ranking the state as the 19th most pet-friendly state in the country.
Between these two leading studies, Wisconsin ranks right around the middle of the pack, with strengths and weaknesses for its puppy population.
Are cities in Wisconsin pet-friendly?
Cities can score quite differently from their parent state in pet-friendly rankings. Wallethub released a thorough study of the 100 largest cities in the country and ranked them by animal-friendly factors.
Madison is the largest city in Wisconsin, with a population of around a quarter million. In the Wallethub study, Madison ranked 26th out of 100 cities. Way to go, Madison! The city is a little pricier for pet owners than others, ranking 52nd in Pet Budget, but ranked higher at 38th in pet health and wellness, and 30th in outdoor pet-friendliness.
In an extensive Trust for Public Land (TPL) study, Madison ranked as the 7th best city for dog parks, with 3.9 dog parks per 100,000 people.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Wisconsin
Wisconsin saved 56,911 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 1,704 animals were killed over this same period.
Forty-three out of 74 of the animal shelters within Wisconsin are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is average, but the state has an above-average save rate of 88%. This is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state, but it’s very close! We hope to see them change those last two percentage points soon.
