    Mollinator, I may be completely off track, but doesn't your Rotti have SAS?
    If so, then I don't think your Rotti can be classified as the perfect example.
    If the breeder got the health aspect wrong, then theres a chance they got the physical aspect wrong too.

    Sorry, not cow hocked, thats only the back legs. Im not entirely sure what its called for the front legs. It could be caused from her diet, past trauma or genetics, plus a couple more.
    Then again, it could be just the way she's standing!

    Sorry to get off the topic here, but are you saying that if two Australian champions breed, and they produce a pup with a health defect, then that pup will also be physically incorrect?

    I wasn't aware that you were an expert on Rottweilers?

    I would just assume from my experience as a nurse, that breeders that don't test for heart murmurs(and it is possible to test for, its called an ECG) may not have dogs up to physical breed standard. Considering SAS is apparent due to a genetic disorder, heart valve disease or anemia, I would assume Molly got it genetically.
    Majority of our breeder clients stick by health, temperment and beauty-in that order.
    Don't blame me for thinking if they skipped the health test, they skipped the breed standard.
    I went back and read your thread, and this breeder was not ethical at all, and I have absolutely no idea how Molly's parents were Australian champions when one of them or both has SAS, or possibly somewhere in their history.

    I may not be an expert on Rottwielers, im not an expert on breeding, im not an expert on genetics but im pretty close to an expert on dog health.

    There is no need to get defensive. My dogs arn't breeding quality, neither are a lot of members dogs. Just because they're purebred doesn't mean they have the right to be bred.

    Just re-reading your post, I think your Aus. Champ scenario was hypothetical, and in that case. An Australian Champion would not be an Australian champion with a heart defect.

    Aussie I'm not getting defensive at all. I just don't think it's right that you post negative comments in response to a new member's question.

    My Australian Champion scenario wasn't hypothetical!

    Maybe you can start a new thread if you want to talk about heart health testing.

    How is 'your dog is gorgeous, but isn't breeding material' negative????
    How about 'your dog is gorgeous, it is a shame she was desexed because her puppies would be so cute'. Positive?
    I don't see why health testing can't be discussed here, it goes hand in hand with the original posting.

    Even the best dogs in the world can produce bad offspring.

    The OP was introducing his dogs here and got a pretty bad reception. His dog was desexed so why treat him like a backyard breeder????

    Health testing is a topic that relates to every dog owner so why not create a topic for that?

    She does look like a few Rotties i have seen
    As to the breeding bit........I think dogs that are bred should be the best of their example in both conformation, health, character and true to their breed standard. I bought one of my newfie girls with the hope to breed her under the guidance of my breeder as a mentor . But I consider her not perfect enough to breed. So when she is two she will be spayed. I still love her and her character is perfect, but to breed you are hoping to improve, not the opposite. There are just too many puppies bred, sadly many end up dumped or not leading a great life.

    I havn't read the other posts but i say shes pure. i've seen heaps of pure rotties that look like her. its better to keep them lean anyway. Alot of people just have one picture in their heads when they think of a rottie and thats "big bulky with a short muzzle". Sometimes people ask me if Pacino is pure but i dont mind. all you can do is educate people on your breed, unless they react like this woman i saw at the vet and started screaming when she saw Pacino like he was gonna eat her little dog and he wasnt even doing anything haha he just looked at her all confused and kept walking but i went back and said "Careful my Rottie hasnt eaten today and your dog looks pretty tasty". Stupid people out there.
