Hello!
I am adopting a rottweiler puppy. He is going to be a family pet, not for showing or breeding or anything. His parents were both rottweilers, one a German Rottweiler and one an American Rottweiler. For some reason, some of the litter came out just black and tan, while others came out black, tan, and white. Not just a white spot on the chest but a lot of white. My boy is white, tan, and black. I think he's adorable. I'm just curious as to how and why that happens! I attached a photo of him!

This is not a pure bred Rottweiler puppy. It seems that another male dog must have bred with the female. Dogs can have puppies that are fertilized by multiple males. Rottweilers do NOT come with white. I hope that you did not pay money for this puppy?? I would get a DNA test done to see what other breed is in there. Does not mean your puppy is not to be loved and trained...just that he is not a pure Rottweiler, but a mix.

Thank you! That makes a lot of sense. I did pay for the puppy but not a lot. Do you know what dna test works best for determining breeds? I'd like to know what else he is!

I think that Embark is one that many breeders use. It also has some genetic tests results that you can be made aware of.
www.embarkvet.com I'm sure you will find others with a google search.

I saw puppies on Kijji for sale with a lot of white on them. The sellers claimed they were Rotti's as well, they are either stupid or crooks. I'm leaning to crooks lol.

The face looks like an Australian Shepherd. If you don't do the DNA test you may have to wait until he grows up to see how big he is to see if he is part Beagle, Shepherd of Jack Russel Terrier lol. Picture that mating happening. ha ha

He adorable no matter what breed he is. Good luck. Love the photo. Be sure and let us know when you find out.

Hey, everyone! I did a DNA test on him and these were the results:

84% Rottweiler
5% Anatolian Shepherd
3% Boston Terrier
2% Maremma Sheepdog
2% Mexican Streetdog
2% Lhasa Apso
1% Bulgarian Sheperd
1% Xoloitzcuintli

When he started getting bigger I was convinced that he had some beagle in him but he doesn't apparently! Here are some photos of him now!

Thanks for being interested in my silly boy. :)

He's as cute as a button!! He really does look like a Beagle with his coloring. How old is he now? and how much does he weigh? I'd be curious to know what size he grows into. There are some small breeds in the genetic results...but being 84% Rottweiler, I would assume he should be a good size when he is finished growing. Did you notify the "breeder"?

he sure is a nice looking dog. from the pictures, it doesnt look like he is overly large….which i wouldnt confuse as a bad thing.

while he might not be purebred, the good news is with that Heinz 57 bloodline he has going, he is a heck of a lot less likely to have genetic problems that a purebred might have. i would be after the breeder as they lied to you. i flat out do not understand people like that, and they need to be held to account. i can’t stand liars, thieves, and politicians. (the last one was redundant)

He's adorable.

It will be interesting to see his size. Agis holds around 52-54lbs last time we weighed him (awhile ago now). He's a mix too but we don't know his breakdown.

He’s definitely got that ‘Rotti Stare’ thing going on ;-) lol (in reference to the bottom photo). He is as cute as a button and I am sure very loveable and probably very trainable. Have fun!!!!
