We discovered the love for Rottweiler…
in the beautiful idyllic Eifel. There, we used to own a summer residence and enjoyed the pictorial nature all around the Rurtalsperre. On a sunny summer day during a covered wagon trip we got to know a horse breeder and dog lover as a friend. At the first visit of our beloved friend, the door opened and three handsome Rottweiler welcomed us with great joy. At first the feeling was a little queasy but these big pet dogs convinced us. That day the love for this breed arised.

 

We would like to have a Rotti, except mom...
After all of us fell in love with our friend’s Rottweiler, Ralf and Denise started collecting information about the breed and education of a pup. No sooner said and done. In the following days we investigated and drove among other things to the Rottweiler BG Eschweiler where we received a lot of information. Now it was about convincing mom Petra which was a hard piece of work but at the end we thankfully got the OK.

 

We searched and got a new family member…
Our first dog. I, Ralf made some investigations in advance at the ADRK which possibility we had to acquire a Rottweiler pup. After a detailed conversation I got telephone numbers of diverse breeders. Shortly after and a visit in Hamm, we were proud owners of a eleven- week-old Rottweiler male dog, Gion from Castle Heessen. He quickly felt domestic and was our baby. As you probably might know we will never forget the first dog in our family. He was simply the best. Unfortunately the time with him was too short because he came down with cancer and with a heavy heart we had to deliver him from his pain on 15th October 2003. The end of this short but beautiful time that we spent with Gion was full of mourning. To us all it was the worst we ever experienced. To avoid a next pain we remained for the time being without a dog.

 

We fell in love with Rottis for the second time...
Two weeks later were the German Championships VPG in Eschweiler Dürwiß that Ralf and Denise attended spontaneously as visitors. During a conversation with our beloved friend Rene Külzer, chairman of the BG Eschweiler, we were told that his wife Marion, owner of the Rottweiler kennel of Shambala cared for two litters, at home. Rene spontaneously invited us to take a look at the small pups. A few weeks later the three of us were standing in their living room surrounded by a lot of small pups. The first moments with the pups were very hard because everything reminded us of Gion. But after this visit it was for sure. We get a new Rottweiler. Due to the fact that all Shambala pups were already sold, we again had to search for one in which Rene and Marion supported us so lovely.

 


 

We got our Rottweiler...
Rene introduced us to family Piepgras, the Rottweiler kennel from Anin who at that time had a nine-week-old male dog for sale. On the following day Ralf and Denise got on their way to Oldenburg to take a look at the pup and as a matter of course we acquainted the pup. Consequently at the same day Quattro moved from house Anin into our house. Now again there was life in the house-Quattro rocked the whole house. And yes we were all happy!

 

We have to convince mom again…
After approx. ten months Ralf and Denise had the idea to welcome another she-dog to our family and to start breeding. We agreed quite quickly but had to convince mom (Petra) again which was this time a hard piece of work again. But mom is the best and agreed. We contacted Janna Piepgras and told her our project. Janna promised us a she-dog as long as there is one in the litter from the breeding of Diva from Anin and Calle from Ehndorfer moor.

 

We get offspring...
On 29th December 2005 our Tschuna from Anin was born. Eight weeks later Tschuna finally came home and was welcomed by all of us, by Quattro as well who was from the very first beginning her “big brother”. Both of them get along with each other very well even though Tschuna nowadays is the boss.

 

 

We would like to thank…
our lovely wife and mom for her tireless commitment because she all alone educates our two rough diamonds. Both passed the BH in Eschweiler as well as the ZTP in Cologne.

 

 

We are now...
owner of the Rottweiler kennel of Alhambra.

 

We are aiming to...
breed Rottweiler which are above all socially acceptable. The breed of beauty, performance, character and health is our ambition.
