    Default Purebred Rottweiler? (Pics Inside)

    Hey guys, im new here. This is my rottweiler girl she is 18months now so still a youngen and im expecting her to maybe fill out a little more but id say shes not getting much bigger..

    Alot of people ask me if shes a purebred rottie (i think it may be because ive kept her quite lean and shes tall for a rott girl)...anyway she didnt come with papers or anything and i really dont care if shes "pure" or not.

    I was just hoping that maybe some of u more experienced dog people could let me know what you think?

    My pedigree Rottie is 19 months old and still quite slim for a Rottie. Your girl looks very similar to her actually. Is that her puppy?

    No its not, haha i would love it to be though! I regret getting her desexed so much!

    How long does it take for a rottie to fill out? my mate said up to 4 yrs but i find that hard to believe!!

    She looks a bit lab in the face to me but it's hard to know for sure.

    I reckon she's purebred.

    Its probly a good thing you got her desexed though. She's gorgeous, but I don't think she's breeding material.
    Don't take that offensively, only a very small majority of dogs are!

    Not offended at all mate, i know shes not breeding material besides i dont even know if shes purebred, its just everyone thats met her has said how much they would love one of her pups (if she ever had any)..

    I am curious though, how can you tell if a rott is "breeding material" or not?

    Im sort of a believer that 2 healthy strong dogs should breed together rather than just 2 dogs with the "correct" looks for showing in a ring etc etc... if you know what i mean? I think so many nice breeds like GSD for a prime example have been turned into a circus act thanks to show breeders...

    I can tell she's not breeding material because her snout is long for a Rotti, her ears are quite large, you said she's quite tall for a female and in the first photo it looks like she's cow hocked.
    Over 200,000 homeless puppies get PTS ever year in Australia, and im one of the people that give them the injection.
    My Kelpie X Border Collie is healthy, strong, agile and absolutely beautiful. Should I breed her? No. My Jack Russell cross Maltesein his hey day(he's 12) was healthy, strong, agile and he's still cute as hell. Should I breed him? No. There are too many mixed breeds in the world that have no homes. Hell, 25% of homeless puppies are purebred! For every puppy that is sold, theres one that isn't.
    Your dog may not be a crossbreed, but currently on DogzOnline there are 27 registered Rottwieler puppies for sale, and IMO she is not the best Rottwieler representative.
    She isn't ANKC registered, she hasn't had any health or temperament tests and I assume you don't know her bloodlines. Even if she does have papers, or clear health and temp. tests and you do know her bloodlines, I can tell from three photos she isn't the absolute best example of the breed.

    In the last photo she definately looks pure bred.

    Either way she is gorgeous!! Rotts are the most amazing dogs. I have grown up with them and adore their personalities.

    Welcome to the forum!!

    wow fair enough then... what does cow hocked mean? does mean they got bad joints?

    Ok so like I said, she looks very similar to my Rottie. I've been checking out all the reasons you've mentioned above about why she's not breeding material. I totally agree that dogs that haven't been health tested shouldn't be bred from. I have to say though, my Rottie is on the Main Register and has the same sized ears and I can't say exactly from a photo, but the snout looks pretty similar in size.

    My Rottie is entire but I would never consider letting her have a litter because I am not a breeder and don't have the knowledge and time to ensure that both mum and babies have the best possible care.
