Resources For Rottweiler Owners
In this special edition, the American Rottweiler Club wanted to invite the public to learn more about the AKC Parent Club and our noble, timeless breed.
We wanted to share the history and mission of our organization by placing an ad in the magazine. (Look for our ad on Pages 80 and 81!)
Our ad provides readers with information and resources about owning a Rottweiler, and highlights Rottweilers in the special roles of working dogs, too - in activities such as Carting or Herding, or Agility, or in Search & Rescue , Law Enforcement, or as Therapy or Service dogs.
Some Friends Are Forever
Most of all, we want the world to know the Rottweiler as the loyal, bravehearted dogs we all know and love.
The Rottweiler is your trustworthy friend, your loyal companion. Together, the bonds of a special and enduring friendship are formed.
We know that with a Rottweiler by our side on the Road Of Life, that Some Friends Are Forever.

The American Rottweiler Club is pleased to announce that late Friday afternoon, WWE’s SVP of Marketing, Gary Davis, confirmed that the John Cena shirt which portrayed the Rottweiler as “vicious” will be pulled from the marketplace.
“The Shirt Has Been Pulled From The Licensee” - Gary Davis, WWE SVP of Communications
The decision came following a barrage of letters from club members and dog lovers, including a formal letter American Rottweiler Club.
In that letter, ARC President, Diane Garnett, wrote, “That the WWE is profiting by deliberately protraying a negative stereotype of the Rottweiler, damaging the reputation of this noble breed, and further fueling the wave of legislation banning Rottweilers from communities across the country is an affront to every loving and responsible Rottweiler owner in the country”.
The shirts were sold in national retail chain stores, including JC Penny and Kohl’s. (See image - Front of WWE shirt) under the WWE brand.
World Wrestling Entertainment licences it’s brand and images to thousands of retail vendors and partners, including the image from the John Cena shirt.
Mr. Davis said the images has been pulled from their licensee and will not be renewed.
You Did It! Thank You!
The American Rottweiler Club says Thank You! to all dog lovers that wrote to WWE in protest - you made it happen!
We’d like to thank Gary Davis and World Wrestling Entertainment for responding to our plea, and taking action to remove the offensive shirt from the marketplace.
Most importantly, the WWE heard that our goal is the protection and preservation of our beloved and noble breed, the Rottweiler, thanks to you.
If you’d like to commend the WWE for their positive actions, please send your letters to:
