My new little guy that I put a deposit on, has a little bitty white spot on his chest, how bad is that, what does it mean?
This is my first Rottie puppy. Thank you.
If you are buying a show quality pup his markings should fit the Rottweiler Breed Standard and I would not accept a puppy with a white ‘spot’ (a few white hairs however is acceptable).
BUT, if this is a pet puppy, then it’s not something to worry about. A white mark on the chest isn’t terribly unusual and although it’s a ‘fault’ in terms of showing, it has no relevance to temperament or general ‘good looks’, nor does it mean that your pup isn’t purebred.
If you check out my Red Rottweiler page you’ll find out why this, and occasionally other types of unusual colors/markings, occur. As long as your pup is healthy, has healthy parents with good temperaments, and the breeder is responsible and experienced, then you really don’t need to worry.
Hope this helps, best of luck with your new puppy.
