Hannah is a confident and outgoing pup who loves to cuddle!. She is very smart and willing to please, gets along well with other dogs and is good with cats! She can be a bit bossy when it comes to the big dogs stealing her toys and will stand her ground and bark and sometimes is able to steal the toy back due to her determination (not an easy task) Therefore, proper socialization and obedience training is a must for this little gal. Like her sister, Hannah does not like to be separated from her people and has learned how to climb over baby gates and puppy pens! Usually leaving her little sister alone behind her! Teaching her to stay on her own for short periods is a must for Hannah. Therefore she would benefit by being with someone who is not gone for long periods of time until she learns how to be on her own. Like her sister, Hannah is excellent walking on leash, and loves meeting new friends. She has already gone on a couple of short adventures , off with one of the neighbourhood teenagers to meet his family. Apparently she was a perfect little guest, stealing the hearts of everyone she met! Hannah is most likely going to grow up to be a fairly large dog so would do best with someone who has had previous experience with big dogs so as help her on her way to being an awesome adult dog!

She is a 9 week old large breed mix.. At this point we have no idea what kind of dog she is. Mom is a real mix and I imagine dad was as well.
Heidi may be cute but she is full of attitude. She will need an experience owner with no small children. Children over 12 should be fine. Heidi is a fun loving girl that will need training to keep her mind busy, lots of activitey to keep the body tired. She is learning to walk on a leash and is good with other dogs and cats.
All pups are adopted within BC. the adoption fee includes vaccines, spay, microchip and tattoo. If you would like an application please drop us a line at email@example.com
Hermione seems to be taking on the temperament of her namesake of the Harry Potter Series. She is a confident little puppy that is full of fun and mischief, but can also be a bit shy at times. Hermione gets along well with other dogs and good with cats. Hermione loves to go for walks and is especially good on leash for a puppy her age. She will trot along beside you, sometimes taking the leash in her mouth, but for now just wants to help hold onto it. She has not yet started with the “tug of war” game that most pups like to play. She is a friendly and outgoing when meeting and greeting people along the way! Hermione is going to need someone who is home most of the time so she can learn properly how to be on her own. She does not like to be separated from her human family and will cry, bark and howl when left, even with her sister to keep her company. Although she has not yet learned how to climb like her sister, she will try to wiggle her way through any opening she can find to aid in her escape plan! .Stuffed kongs, chew toys and soft things to cuddle up with will help to distract her from engaging in inappropriate behaviour due to separation anxiety! Hermione’s favourite activity though is to snuggle on your lap and she will happily snooze away the time as long as she has the company of her “human”! With the right guidance Hermione is going to grow up to be an awesome companion!
This fun little man came to us early in Feb from one of our northern partners. Scamp had been hit by a truck outside of Dease Lake. He was taken in by a wonderful woman and while she kept him overnight, she also spent hours trying to find him help. Just hours before he was going to be euthanized she found help and drove him 4...
Baloo comes to us from a local shelter. This senior boy is just learning about the good life. He is between 8 – 10 and still has some life in him. He is making the rounds at the barns watching his foster mom and the horses. Baloo would not be suitable for a home with cats and we are still learning about how he feels about other dogs.
This old guy would do best in a home with no stairs as he is a little wobbly. We think he still has some eye sight and a little hearing. Once we know more about him we will let you know.
Caring for senior dogs is expensive and if you would like to sponsor Baloo, please send the donations with instructions that it is meant for his care.
We are a small and dedicated group in the Lower Mainland area of British Columbia. In 2008, Bev and Jim Inglis gathered some friends together to help with a vision. That vision was to work with Rottweilers and Rottweiler crosses that no one else was helping with. We wanted to take on those who were old and or sick. Shelters will often not keep these dogs for long as a cold shelter is no place for an old dog. While we could not fix them all, we were able to start helping a few. We opened a bank account and started to fund raise.
We have managed to grow since that time and it is because those that stand beside us share the same vision. We first got our non profit status and have now gotten our charity status.
West Cost Rottweiler Rescue is dedicated to assisting Rottweilers that are currently in the shelter system on the west coast of Canada. West Coast Rottweiler Rescue is an approved rescue with the British Columbia SPCA as well as several municipal animal shelters. Whenever possible, West Cost Rottweiler Rescue will provide medical care, rehabilitation and homes for Rottweilers in need. Read More...
Interested in adopting a Rottweiler?
You “must” be or you wouldn’t be reading this. You’ve already heard how wonderful Rottweilers are. Well, I think you should also hear, before it’s too late, that Rottweilers ARE NOT THE PERFECT BREED FOR EVERYONE. As a breed they have a few features that some people find charming, but that some people find mildly unpleasant and some people find downright intolerable. Read More...
Why Dogs End Up In Shelters
Dogs end up at a shelter or rescue for a variety of reasons. It doesn’t mean they are aggressive or abused, but many are abandoned and neglected. Often the shelters contact us because of problems that the dogs are experiencing there only because they are fearful or sick and may be acting out. WCRR has heard so very many excuses for dogs ending up in shelters. Read More...
