There’s a misconception that the American rottweiler is tall, leggy, and lacks the distinctive block head that you would expect in this breed of dogs. According to R-CK Kennels, that is far from the truth because this breed is simply one that was born in the US. Sadly, haphazard breeding of these dogs has led to the spreading of numerous Rottweilers who don’t fit the breed quality.

2- German Rottweiler

A German rottweiler is simply one that was born in Germany. However, this breed may seem different from its American counterpart because the Rottweiler Club of German selectively breeds them. The Germans only allow specific dogs to breed, and they must pass stringent physical as well as temperamental stipulations before their owners can breed them.

3- Roman Rottweiler

A Roman rottweiler is oversized, and through selective breeding, they have the same appearance as a mastiff. This size increase doesn’t uphold the standard of the breed. The worst thing is that because of their increased size; these dogs have a propensity to suffer from hip dysplasia among other orthopedic concerns. So if someone is selling a “Roman Rottweiler,” it’s just a sales ploy unethical breeders have created hoping to attract buyers.

4- Rare Rottweiler

Occasionally, you may come across a breeder who claims to sell some valuable Rottweilers that are highly prized. You may find red, blue or even albino Rottweilers being advertised as very desirable specimens. Even though such dogs may appear enticing, they’re not a standard breed. It’s believed that these dogs are what you get when you breed a rottweiler with a different dog breed.

5- Tailed Rottweiler

A natural tail on a rottweiler is something you don’t see every day. However, that is not unusual because Rottweilers have natural tails just like any other dog. The reason why you may find a rottweiler with a tail is that in Germany, docking tails is a practice that has been banned.

Real Rottweiler

So you may be wondering how to tell whether a rottweiler is a real deal. A real rottweiler is the one that adheres to the standard of the breed. The good news is that we have societies that help to maintain the breed quality such that you can’t tell an American rottweiler from its German counterpart.
