I just recently had to get rid of my beautiful rottweiler because of that stupid insurance deal. The thing of it is that I have worked around dogs all of my life. I have never had a problem with any of the large breed dogs especially rotts. In fact I adopt and find homes for abused or abandoned rottweilers.  I have been bitten seven times by the smaller breeds. I think it is very unfair.  I do know there are special insurance companies that will carry rottweilers and many of the other large breeds of dogs.  I was able to adopt another two.

Hi.  I think State Farm will insure your house with a "large" breed dog.  I have been looking into this, being that I will be buying a house in the very near future.  I have contact several companies and AAA wanted me to sign a waiver stating the the insurance company is NOT responsible if my rottie bites or attacks someone.  If she did by chance, meaning that the person would have to be an intruder inside my house, she would have to be removed from the premises.  I feel that this stereotyping is wrong and should be stopped.  It is not the type of dog that you have, it is the way the dog is trained.  However, we can not stop the insurance companies from doing this until all "large" breeds get a better reputation.

i am an insurance agent and have a 7 year old female rottie. i also do not currently carry renters insurance and had to rent through a private person because of my dog. would i have ever gotten rid of payton, no. as for the insurance there are companies that write homeowners without excluding the dog, its just harder to find them and they will cost you more money cause you are considered to be a higher risk. whatever you, dont lie about having the dog though cause that can void any potential future claim. especially if it is related to the dog. Most agents will try and place the home within whats called E&S lines (excess and surplus), its out there for people who can not get coverage elsewhere, but it will cost you more for it. as for the comment above about smaller dogs, most of the time they are much meaner than any rottie i have ever met!! I love my payton :)

I just called State Farm and they do insure people with Rottweiler mixes (I was turned down by multiple companies even though my dog is only 60 lbs and is more like a lap dog than anything else...)

Hi All,
I live in Rochester, Ny and I am a home owner and Rottweiler owner.  I am insured with Alstate and they informed that they will continue my coverage with 1 Rottweiler.  They explained to me that Rotties are considered "WARNING DOGS" and not attack dogs.  However, if I had two they said that they would have to cancel me.  
So that is one option for those of you seeking insurance with a "2 Hottie Rottie."

i talked to several companies and was denied but after talking to a co-worker, called state farm at 770-297-4722. i spoke with nicole who stated that they insure "large breed dogs" on a case by case basis. i have two rott pups and am very happy to have found coverage with them. hope this helps.
