i am curious on how many types of rottwieler breeds there are? my rotty sabbath recently passed away about a month ago and i had him for 10 years and when i got him i was young and didnt researchmuch about his type of rot or thethe guy i got him from i new that i just wanted a rottwieler.well the guy i got him from saaid he was german. well as he got older i noticed he was bigger than any german rot i have ever seen. first i was told he was a german and gladiator, then i was told he was just gladiator, then i was told he was rocky mountain, i know he isnt american rot cuz he has the same exact build as a german but he was much bigger i mean he was taller wider and his head was gigantic. but he had the short nose of a german. he was a beautiful dog great markings the whole 9 yards just 2x the size of a german. so can anyone tell me how many different types of rots there are and what type he may have been cuz i want to get a female now and i would like one just like sabbath was. i can send pic to anyone if that may help get the answer im looking for

all I can tell you is there are no types of rotts they are just rotts. All of them some are just bred to be bigger and that doesn't always mean better. their are different lines but they are all the same breed.

Now I have to say Missy is right.
.


All Rottweilers started out in Germany,That is where the breed was perfected.And maintained.


When breeding dogs,you must first know the lines are they going to produce taller dogs shorted,dogs with alot of bone or finer bone,big heads ,heads that met the standard.


Most people just breed dogs because they can,not because they should.They don't care about keeping with a standard or producing quality dogs,just having puppys.That is why we have so many dogs that all look different.Look at some German sites all the dogs look( pretty much) a like.They have very strict rules on who can breed and to who you can breed your dog to.


If some ones asks what kind of Rottweiler you have say there is only one.

Remember there are different types(structurly)of every breed but only one breed of that dog.


A Rottweiler is a Rottweiler.Some are just born different places.They all go back to Leo,some just ran thru the trailer park.

Again there is no American Rottweiler.Your dog comes from American lines he is just a Rottweiler.Saying it this way will make people look at you better when talking about your dog.


I use to live in Sheboygan and now live in Berlin ,WI.Who did you get your puppy from?
