I'm sorry that you feel that you have been called out. This is something that Rottweiler owners hear all the time about the "160 lb Rottweiler". He does look overweight,and he does look like he is big. I have been around this breed for most of my life and I have yet to meet a 160 lb Rottweiler that is not overweight or grossly out of standard. What is his pedigree??? I will ask fellow Rottweiler breeders about a puppy that sold for $68,000. This must be a tall tale that gets passed around?
The best puppies stay in Germany and do not sell for that much. I can look up Bruno's Championship on the record books.

I'm not saying that Tyson is not the best dog. He looks very much loved and cared for. I understand that you can't help that he is over the standard breed size. Bigger is not better in this breed. My first Rottweiler (named Bruno) was also oversized and way out of the breed standard....he died at the age of 6. 馃槩
That tail could be 30 lb....but you're right, to be perfect he needs that skinny waist. His hips will thank him.

I'd say he looks ever so slightly chubby. But given the fact that he looks pretty good at 160, even if he slimmed down I doubt you'd get him under 145 or so, which is still huge for a Rottweiler.

For reference, here is my boy. He is 2 years and 115 lb and I think well proportioned.

He's a good looking boy. I like that you can see a hint of the last few ribs. Leaner is healthier in this breed. They love their food!!!:)

I just want to tell you about Dexter. He is is 46kg, and got a great body shape. The vets said he is the ideal weight. This is by their body chart. He is also a tall Rottweiler, mush taller them my others. Donn't know much about his mum and dad. I him from advert, someone was selling him after a breakup. He was about 4 months old. I will try and get a photo of him uploaded.

If Dexter weighs 46 kgs...that is about 101 lbs.....that is a normal in standard weight for a male Rottweiler. He sounds like he is the perfect weight and size. The OP claims his dog is 160 lbs and not overweight...that would be 72 kgs.
