I have seen sites for rare white rottweilers, but they never called them albino. Do these dogs have normal colored eyes like a standard rott, or are they lighter. Is there a difference between a white rott and a albino rott?</BLOCKQUOTE>
I figured there had to be some kind of throwback from them not meeting the standard.
Its a shame there are people out there who will try to make a profit off of these dogs. I heard the breeding standards are closely regulated in Germany, is this true? If so, do you see it happening here?</BLOCKQUOTE>
It started in Scandinavia(Denmark,Sweden,Finland and Norway) in 1987
In Germany all docking had to be stoped by 1/1/2001
France,Belgium,and Italyand a few other countries still dock,but if they follow the FCI standardthey have untill 1/1/2006 to stop docking.Austrailia has stoped docking also.
So yes anything born in Germany after1/2001 must have a tail(tho some people dock once the dog gets here),but just because a dog has a tail does not mean it's German(some breeders don't dock here to cut back on the cost of rearing a litter(cheep)).
Again(this is my thinking )if the dog is such a great German dogwhy is it not in Germany?They don't sell the good stuff.Since the Germans have much higher standards for breeding,if the dogs don't meet their standards they sell them to stupid people.We get all their junk and they laugh all the way to the bank.
There are a few people who improt good dogs,but the key word here is few.
And yes all Rottweilers are fromGermany.The dogs that are being shown and the ones the BYB are breeding.They all came from the same blood lines.Every Rottweiler on this planet came from the same place.
My sister's neighbor got a white dobie puppy a while ago. I haven't seen it yet, but my sister told me about it. I didn't think of the skin problems, and needing to stay out of the sun, Donna! We're in AZ, so hopefully he'll keep his boy inside and in the shade.
