My husband and I purchased Ava in early January 2017. We were just 3 short months from euthanizing our beloved 10yr old Rottweiler, Ellie, who succumbed to osteosarcoma. We grieved her loss but knew that another would be in our future at some point. The breed is like no other, but you'd have to experience it to believe it....They are such and different and special kind of dog and give back, ten fold, what you give to them.....In any case, we didn't expect a replacement to follow so soon after Ellie.....but some things just work out that way. We happened upon Sherman's website and loved the pictures and testimonies we viewed. From the very beginning we appreciated Shermans' professionalism and kindness. After one visit to view his facility and available puppies we knew we'd come home with one. We placed our deposit and were committed.
No regrets! We love our beautiful Ava--so different than our previous Rottie but just as remarkable. We can see she is determined, smart and full of bravado and confidence already...From time to time we glimpse her loving side but she's all play and puppy now and we love it!
Would we recommend one to you?? You bet, hands down, a fantastic dog!! Be ready, as they require a firm but dedicated and loving hand and a special place within your family. You will not be disappointed, however. Perhaps you will find the " best dog ever" like we think we did.

I recently purchased my 1st Rottweiler from Sherman and I have to say the experience was great. He called me right away when a puppy became available and constantly kept me informed with pictures and updates of my pup. When I arrived to pick Leonidas up Sherman had everything ready, introduced me to his parents and answered every question I had. I love my new puppy, he has a good disposition and looks GREAT!!! I have received nothing but compliments on how he looks from other Rottweiler owners. Thanks again Sherman for such a great pup, I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to become a Rottweiler owner.
My husband and I have done alot of research on finding the perfect puppy for our home. WE FOUND ONE!!! Wonderful breeder and beautiful dogs! You will not be disappointed. We could not be happier with our choice. He really is a wonderful puppy! Thank you Sherman for all that you do!! Take care and keep doing what you do best!! Love your dogs! SHARON AND JOHN RAMBOLD

Sherman & Deborah,
Thank you again for your time and effort to breed such a wonderful, healthy puppy and help me find the perfect match for my family. My boy, Gunnar, is now 11 weeks old and he is doing extremely well. Our vet always comments on how "perfect" he is. Gunnar has a great temperament, is very sociable and outgoing, and is quite intelligent. I highly recommend Von Philhaus for the perfect addition to your family. Sherman and Deborah were always in constant communication with me, answered all my questions, and fulfilled my expectations in finding my first Rottweiler.
Thank you again!

Hi Mr. Sherman,
This is Olivia wilder, I'm sending you a testamonial below for your site. I wanted to let you know the puppy is named duke and he is doing well. Thank you for you time and in assisting us with finding the puppy we wanted.
The Phillipshaus-rottweilers kennels are a wonderful place to find a good breed of rottweiler. My husband and I have an adorable rottweiler named Duke who came from a good father and mother. The facilities were clean and we'll maintained. The dogs are all very healthy and fit. You can tell the breeder cares about his dogs and the families the puppies go to. I would highly recommend the Phillipshaus-rottweiler kennels to anyone who wants a great rottweiler.
Thank you again Sherman!

My husband and I recently purchased a male puppy from Von Philhaus. We had our puppy shipped to us and what we received was well above our expectations. Our puppy came to us with an outstanding temperament, very loveable, beautiful and in addition to all that an extremely happy and confident personality. Since working with Von Philhaus our experience from day 1 has only been positive. We could not be any more pleased with this kennel. Thank you Sherman for all the care you put into your breeding program, answering all our questions, your prompt replies and keeping us updated since our puppy was born.

My husband and myself had been searching for a a new family member and one who would mesh well with our 2 and a half year old Doberman.
I was able to get in touch with the owners of Von philhaus rotts who talked with us about our Doberman, his temperament, etc. and immediately he told us about Ruby. We set up a meet and greet and met Ruby a few days later. The owner was extremely polite and helped us to introduce Ruby and Axel slowly which is always best for Axel. The owner also helped to explain every detail about Ruby including her history and parents history. Ruby was just what we were looking for in a family dog and her temperament is amazing, including her behaviors with our 15 month old daughter. I would highly recommend Von philhaus rotties to anyone looking to add an amazing breed and wonderful temperament to your family.

I bought not 1 but 2 puppies from this man and they are more than I can wish for. I have two grown rotties so I knew what I was looking for and I did look for over a year before I found these two they have the markings and the faces I wanted to extend my family. I stay in touch as much as I can just so they know how much I appreciate the care and troubled put them through. I usually don't write reviews or references but in this case I thought I needed to they answered every question I had before I bought the dogs and are still answering them and it's been 4 months. So if you are still wondering if they are the right people to buy from trust me they are.
I am an excited to announce my family and I are proud new owners of our first Rottweiler pup from Von Philhaus Rottweilers. We had been searching and searching for many years for a Rotty, we even researched rescue dogs but with that sometimes come many issues that are hard to overcome. We needed a trusted and caring breeder and that is what we found in Von Philhaus.
I am big dog lover and come from a background breeding championship show dogs with my father and when I first contacted Sherman of Von Philhaus I felt at home. Sherman did not try to sell me but rather wanted to know what I was looking for to ensure we were a match and after our interview we were matched. When my wife and I went to pick up our male I was equally impressed with the cleanliness of the grounds and kennel which obviously reflected care.
Our puppy came with his first set of shot, tail docked and beautiful packet complete with instructions and coupons to get us off to a good start. When I asked to see the mother there was no hesitation and she was as advertised very calm and great personality.
I highly recommend Von Philhaus Rottweilers to everyone I know.
This is our second Rottweiler puppy from Von Philhaus that my husband and I purchased as we had no doubt in our mind that he would be exceptional. The day we received him from the airport he was ready to play and acted as if we're family all along. He is very confident , smart, very sociable with an excellent temperament. He is a joy to go camping with as no one is a stranger to him as he loves up to everyone. Thank you Sherman for breeding excellent Rottweilers. Matt & Kim
Just wanted to say I had the best experience when I went to pick up my pup Dutchess. Sherman was very helpful and actually taught me a few things to know about puppies. He has also been available whenever i have questions, all I have to do is call and leave a message and he always calls back in a reasonable time. With the experience I had I would recommend this breeder to anyone and everyone seeking a Rottweiler puppy. Thank you so much.
Thank you for Zeus. By far the best Rotti that I have ever owned. He is only 3 1/2 months old and is a beast. I have taken him to work at Fort Bragg and to many other places and I asked people comment on his color and temperament. He is great with other dogs and especially children. I work and train him daily and he always wants to learn and please me. If any Soldier ever talks about wanting a dog I will quickly talk about you. You even worked with me when I wanted him with a tail and also with deployments so thank you very much.
Good day all, I recently purchased my second Rottweiler Puppy (female) from Von Philhaus Rottweilers, my first a male puppy. I felt compelled to send a big thanks and shout out to Sherman & Deborah for such wonderful animals! This little guy and gal (for now) has it all! Beautiful/Robust markings, Big Head and strong muscular features, shining smooth coat, the temperament of a family dog but the characteristics of a military working dog...if properly trained. If I were to come across anyone looking for a Rottweiler puppy Von Philhaus Rottweilers would be our recommendation, hands down! As they say, your first impression is the best impression and we certainly had a great first impression during our visit to their kennel. The area was clean and very well maintained. We were equally impressed with the living space that each dog had to themselves. They all looked very healthy, happy and energetic. Once again thank you Sherman & Deborah for your commitment and dedication to this awesome breed and producing show quality dogs!

We would first like to say that dealing with Sherman was a very great experience. We have owned 3 Rottweilers and know a little bit about the breed, Sherman knew even more! When we were able to get to his kennel to check it out, we might have been sold on his dogs from just looking at how well taken care of the kennels were. The first thing you see is a beautiful structure to house his bitches and puppies and the awesome shelter he has for the rest of them. Sherman was very inviting to meet the sire of our potential future puppy. When I approached the kennel I noticed how well built Franz was. The second thing I noticed was how much love he wanted to give me, a perfect stranger (with of coarse Sherman right next to me!) Franz encouraged me to pet him, and if up to him it would be a lot longer! He is a beautiful, loving Rottweiler. We then met the bitch of our potential future puppy, Farah. Farrah, if possible, was even more loving than Franz. At this point we threw "potential" out, we were purchasing a puppy! We gave Sherman the deposit that night. Once the due date came, Sherman sent us a text message letting us know that she had not gone into labor yet and continued to text us until she did. A true testament that Sherman is NOT a backyard breeder just trying to make a quick buck, this man truly loves his dogs. Once the puppies were old enough, Sherman called to let us know we could come spend time with our unnamed puppy! We spent about an hour with our new puppy and could not wait to get the fur ball home. A few weeks later it was our time to pick "Yogi" up. It has been 7 weeks shy of a year since that day and there has not been a day that goes by that we regret. Yogi is the best Rottweiler we've owned. We can count on 2 hands the times he made a mistake in the house and has not chewed one thing other than several toys. I bring him most places with me and his temperament is outstanding. As with any Rottweiler they need to be trained, we do this almost everyday and he ALWAYS is ready to go to work. He is doing things that dogs we have had in the past either never did or it took much longer to learn, he is a very smart puppy. The love Yogi gives us is his best quality. The boy loves to be near one of us! He is very alert and aware of his surroundings. He looks like his mother and will eventually be built like his father. He is over 100 lbs and still growing, it's a good 100 lbs, not an ounce of fat on him. We are very fortunate to have found Sherman, the love that he gives his Rottweilers definitely bleeds down to the puppies that he offers. Some say that the best advertisement is word of mouth. We are here to tell any one interested in a Rottweiler family member, Von Philhaus Rottweilers is a perfect place to go.
