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.
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.
