Welcome to the internet home of Donnerberg Rottweilers located on 30 acres in Live Oak, California which is 45 minutes north of Sacramento.  My name is Cheri Ruzich and my husband Ron and my daughter Christa Dorsey and I own and selectively breed Rottweilers from famous German and European pedigrees.  All of our adult Rottweilers and Rottweiler puppies possess sound temperaments, healthy bodies, excellent bone structure, extremely high intelligence and natural protection instincts.  Donnerberg Rottweilers are calm, trainable, protective, courageous and devoted to their owners.  Our site is filled with original articles written by me and thousands of photos of Rottweilers.  We offer help and education to anyone who inquires.

The goals we strive for are to follow the FCI Rottweiler breed standard used by the ADRK in Germany.  All Rottweiler dogs owned or bred by us have certified hips by their country of origin or by the OFA, OVC, ADRK or Penn Hip here in America.  We are members of the Northern California Rottweiler Klub (Alliance of Independent Rottweiler Klubs) and we show Rottweilers and Rottweiler puppies in mostly European or German style shows and in the International All Breed Canine Association of America.  Our dogs are also successfully shown to their Championships in the American Kennel Club's shows.

Donnerberg Rottweilers kennel name is registered with the American Kennel Club.  We started in Rottweilers in 1979 and bred our first litter of Rottweiler puppies about 10 years later.

We are a Code of Ethics Breeder and all the Rottweilers we breed have hip and health clearances.  We offer a lifetime of breeder support and give a hip and health guarantee.  If at any time that a puppy purchaser decides they don't want a puppy we sold or any dog or puppy bred from one of our stud dogs, we will make sure to help place the puppy or adult dog at any time during their entire life.  All Rottweiler puppies from Donnerberg Rottweilers are well socialized and raised inside the home and spend quality time both indoors and out.  Our dogs can live in a multitude of situations and competitively compete and campaign at shows or working venues here, in Europe, and the world.

We hope you'll enjoy your visit and stop back by soon as we are always adding new pictures of our adults and Rottweiler puppies and information and articles about the breed.

Donnerbergs Mojito, Rottweiler born in the United States
Donnerbergs Mojito,
DOB: 12/3/10, AKC#: WS36235801, OFA#: RO-73382G28M-VPI,
OFA#: RO-EL9208M28-VPI, OFA#: RO-CA5217/15M/P-PI
DNA Long Coat Test #: 79443-Negative

Description: Mojito is the largest male Rottweiler we've ever owned and has the largest bone we've seen in many, many years. He is full size to the standard and weighs 150 pounds in trim working weight. His temperament is sound and he is friendly and loving yet is a fantastic watch dog and will bark ferociously when intruders are present. I am only selling him because he is a little bit much for me to handle because of his size and strength. I have actually ridden him a few times. I cannot wrestle him to the ground. He is the first Rottweiler I've ever owned that I cannot over-power physically, he is just simply too big and too strong. I can get him to do most things just by asking, but I'm used to being able to physically maneuver my dogs. He out weighs me and is taller than I am when he stands up so he does have the advantage. It's a good thing he's such a gentle giant. He is leash trained and knows some basics. Mojo is very agile and can turn on a dime. He can jump pretty high but so far hasn't jumped our six foot fence. His conformation is beautiful and he's extremely highly intelligent. He is ready for some serious training and showing. Mojo is top show quality!! He is a proven natural breeder and has produced some beautiful puppies that look just like him and his litters quality is very consistent. Mojo would definitely be a super addition to any breeding program.
