Types of Rottweiler Dogs

August 21, 2018

We bet you thought you already knew about Rottweilers and assumed there was just one type.

Well, there are more than one. Let’s explore the world of Rottweiler puppies by delving into the various types of this powerful breed of dog that exists!

German Rottweilers

The German Rottweiler comes from – you guessed it – Germany! They differ from American Rottweiler puppies because the Rottweiler Club of Germany selectively breeds them. German Rottweilers are bred to be working dogs, and this is a task that is taken very seriously in Germany. Germans only allow specific dogs to produce. Each dog is required to meet and pass a stringent physical, as well as a temperamental test, and there are stipulations before their owners can breed them. Because of this, German Rottweiler puppies typically exhibit consistent temperaments and personalities.

American Rottweilers

These Rottweiler puppies are bred and born in the United States. Unlike the breeding in Germany, American Rottweilers are generally produced for their handsome and striking looks and not for working. American Rottweilers accepted by the American Kennel Club are considered to be purebred dogs.

Roman Rottweilers

Roman Rottweilers are massive and developed through selective breeding, and they don’t have Roman roots. They resemble the size of a Mastiff dog, but their coat and other physical appearances are that of American or German Rottweilers. Unfortunately, because of their grand size, they are very prone to suffering from hip dysplasia, among other orthopedic concerns.

Tailed Rottweilers

Many Rottweiler puppies are actually born with a tail, but they are docked shortly after that. The tailed Rottie is making a comeback, so to speak! They have been spotted more and more in recent years. In Germany, the practice of tail docking has been banned since 1999, however.

All Rottweilers have the same brown and black distinctive coats, and they possess large heads with alluring brown eyes! These are certain standards that will never change!
