IS THIS A PURE BREED ROTWEILER?

by NORBERT
(IJEBU ODE,OGUN,NIGERIA)

I HAVE A ROTTWEILER AND HER NAME IS SUZZY. I GOT HER AT 6 WEEKS AND SHE IS 4 MONTHS OLD AND HAS BEEN DOING GREAT.

I WAS TOLD BY THREE OTHER BREEDERS THAT SHE IS MOT A PURE BREED. THEY SAY THE HEAD IS NOT FLAT OR BOX AS IT SHOULD BE AND MAYBE ONE OF THE GRANDPARENTS MAY BE CROSSED. I ALSO NOTICE THAT PATCH ON HER CHEST IS SMALL COMPARED TO OTHERS I SEE.

I REALLY NEED TO KNOW WHETHER TO DISPOSE OF HER AND GET A PURE BREED. PLEASE I NEED YOUR ADVICE.

Hi Norbert
First of all I’d recommend that you visit my Rottweiler FAQs page as it has a section that talks about how difficult it is to determine whether or not a dog is purebred. It all really depends on whether or not you have the papers to prove that her parents/grandparents etc. are purebred.

However, I want to answer the last part of your question first as it really disturbs me. You say ‘I REALLY NEED TO KNOW WHETHER TO DISPOSE OF HER AND GET A PURE BREED’…. I’m not sure what you mean by ‘dispose of her’ and don’t understand why you wouldn’t want to keep her even IF (and it’s an IF) she’s not purebred. Earlier in your question you say that you’ve had her for several months and that she’s ‘doing great’. So why would it matter if her head is a little less ‘boxy’ than it should be…. if you’re not 100% sure of her pedigree and background and she’s not a ‘show quality’ pup then breeding her shouldn’t be an issue and therefore conformation isn’t nearly as important as good health and an excellent temperament!

I can say from looking at the photos that she appears to be a full-blood Rottweiler, her coat, bone structure, coloring etc. looks right. Her muzzle is a little long and her ears a little big right now, but she’s a puppy and won’t be done growing and maturing for at least another 18 months or so and will change a lot during that time. She has a very sweet expression and looks adorable too.

If you don’t want her as a beloved pet and companion regardless of her bloodlines etc., then I’d advise finding her another really good, loving home where she’ll be valued for who she is. Rotties are amazing dogs – loyal, loving, intelligent and they bond closely with their owners, if you have any doubts about being able to give her what she needs then find someone who can. She deserves at least that.

My purebred was mean! NEW
by: RottieMama

The day I picked up my baby girl rottweiler who was AKC registered she was nothing but problems. Just mean. Smart as hell, but mean. We kept working with her and she behaved alright, but we were happy she was good with our baby, and yes great guard dog. She knew when I had two herniated discs. She sensed it and totally played me as the Alpha. Tested me and stopped listening to my commands because she knew I couldn’t stop her. My back got tolerable again and I had to teach her again that I was in control. Her energy was intense, we took her for two half hour walks a day, and played fetch in the yard numerous times a day where she would jump up and down off the deck and run circles while doing so. Her strengh was amazing, but her temperament was just off. I never really was scared of any dogs, even strange ones but something about my Ronda was jumpy and she gave this sideways look with her eyes. She ended up biting me while I was trying to crate her because I was leaving the house. Even with a treat she wouldn’t obey. She just stopped. Anyway I have a puppy that she was with for the first four months we had him. She was brutal to him. Normal puppy play at first but she would get him on the side of the house where I couldn’t see and one day I opened the side door and she was flinging him around by his neck. Anyway, he is not AKC registered, had a white spot on his neck that’s fading, but my God is he the most handsome dog I have ever seen, everyday he learns something new. The second day I had him he learned to wait till I tell him to eat in front of his bowls. It took me literally 3 minutes to teach him “paw” and “high 5”. Down took about two sessions of ten minutes but when he gets down he is still on his hind legs and I just say “on your butt” and he rolls his hips to the side. He is 4.5 months and bigger, more muscular, smarter and loyal as shit to me. I know girls are more difficult, but I spent a lot of time with my girl and she turned. Depends on what you expect it a dog. If it just for the glory of saying, “I have an AKC purebred dog.” Then you probably shouldn’t own a dog at all.

You have a very good looking PUPPY
by: Senada

I agree with the message titled
Pure breed?

Enjoy your puppy and who cares what other breeders say.
When I went to purchase my puppy I rang around and asked each breeder alot of questions. They all will tell you how their puppies are the best. I had one want to sell me a show qaulity puppy for AU $3000. More like she wanted to re-coupe the money she spent on importing her dogs from germany. BE SMART.

YOU HAVE SPENT ALL THIS TIME BONDING WITH YOUR DOG, why would you even concider giving up your puppy? Wouldn’t it break your heart. Even better imagine this senario;
You give your puppy up and it becomes a champion (LOL) IMAGINE

To me your puppy looks like a rottweiler NOT TO MENTION A REALLY GOOD LOOKING. I REALLY HOPE U RECONSIDER.

pure breed?
by: Girish

first lesson.. its a biased world among breeders

Give thy ear to every one. but accept what you feel right.

its a traditional practice among breeders to show down other breeders pup finding mistakes.

get the photos of those breeders pups and i will highlight you 50 mistake in them too.. allthough i dont like doing that. as for me each and every pup is beautiful and bundle of pure love.

its common tendancy of biased people, instead of appreciating and seeing good in pup, rather more look behind to see bloodline and breeder etc.

if the blood line and breeder they have any connection or link, they blindly praise or else try to find mistakes.

NO rottweiler is 100% perfect. sorry to say that. each and every rotty , (similar to we humans) have some positive and some negatives.

just enjoy the pure love what this breed will offer you . unconditional love.

and about the standards. some have heavy bones, big head. — which i rate as Body Builder type ones. some are less in head and bones, but have beautiful movement instead. the gymnastic type

and balanced one is athletic type 😀 which result from selective breeding

just ignore the biased comments by biased people and enjoy with your bundle of love.

all the best

You are very selfish to want to dispose of a dog due to your stupidity
by: Anonymous

What kind of person are you to want to dispose of a sweet innocent dog just because you think it’s a mix breed. I became a breeder a few years ago and i have a 4 full blooded Rottis now. I bought my rottis from four different breeders to avoid any possible inbreeding. The second puppy I bought was not pure bred. I took him to the vet when I noticed a few features that had me doubting if he was purr bred or not. After a DNA test it came back saying that he was not a full blooded rotti. Due to me being a breeder, I would not be able to breed him. He is such a sweet, loving, loyal and protective dog and there was no way in hell I could ever dispose of him. I had him fixed so that he couldn’t breed my full blooded females but, this dog is loved just as much as the purebred ones are and this dog will be with our family until the day he dies. If your not a breeder, why does it matter what breed the dog is. If you are a breeder (which I hope your not) just have the dog fixed and keep it. Selfish people who want to dispose of their dog just because it isn’t purebred, shouldn’t be allowed to have a pet at all, not even a snake. I can bet that you are NOT a full blooded american unless you are a full native american indian. So how would you like it if socitry didnt want you and wanted to dispose of you just because you are not a 100% full native american? It’s not the dogs fault that you didn’t research the seller before buying. Why should the dog be killed just because of your selfishness and failure to research. When I sell a rotti pup I go to the buyers home to make sure the dog will be properly contained by a fenced in year and NOT on a chain. I also can tell from the looks of someones surroundings and their other pets, if the puppy will be with a loving family. Your rotti looks like it is full blooded but if for some reason you don’t want him and want to dispose of him, please let me know and I will take him before you kill him.

Why?
by: Annie in WA’s Rott’n Mom

Perhaps you are a bit confused on why to get a Rott. This is a beautiful pup, well formed and looks healthy. If you want a breeding bitch and you have AKC papers on her, fine.

Why did you want a Rottweiler?

why
by: Julie

My question is why did you want a rottie, it would appear that you got a rottie for the wrong reasons. By the way 6 weeks is too young to get a pup. They shouldn’t leave their mother until at least 8 weeks, a good breeder wouldn’t have let her go any earlier than 8 weeks.

She looks purebreed, but what does it matter? She looks great and yes they are very loving great dogs. They are natural guards dogs and do not need to be train as such. They have a natural instinct to guard people especially bitches, I have had 5 of them and they have all been great dogs.

Is this a pure breed rottweiler?
by: Himanshu Mehta

What a silly question this is. How does it matter? You should have checked when bringing her in. if you haven’t started loving her yet then she doesn’t deserve you. please re-home her and don’t you even think about getting a pet again.
