I agree with Agis! I think Hank looks great! A leaner, slimmer dog is much more healthy. Rottweilers are prone to CCL/ACL tears and keeping him slim will help to prevent that. Most Rottweilers are overweight...even the show dogs. Breeders often take the show weight off after the dog attains it's Championship or a Sieger rating.

As a breed they tend to be 'easy keepers'....meaning they need very little food to maintain a good weight...very much like Labradors.

What causes an older dog to lose weight?
When an older dog is losing weight and you have not changed the amount of food you are feeding....it's off to the vet. There could be a few things going on...it could be something simple like worms, or digestion problems....the one I always worry about is cancer with this breed. :( How old is your dog? and how much weight has your dog lost??
