ABOUT THIS DOG BREED AND THE BREEDER
The Rottweiler is a robust working breed of great strength descended from the mastiffs of the Roman legions. A gentle playmate and protector within the family circle, the Rottie observes the outside world with a self-assured aloofness. A male Rottweiler will stand anywhere from 24 to 27 muscular inches at the shoulder; females run a bit smaller and lighter. The glistening, short black coat with smart rust markings add to the picture of imposing strength. A thickly muscled hindquarters powers the Rottie’s effortless trotting gait. A well-bred and properly raised Rottie will be calm and confident, courageous but not unduly aggressive. The aloof demeanor these world-class guardians present to outsiders belies the playfulness, and downright silliness, that endear Rotties to their loved ones. (No one told the Rottie he’s not a toy breed, so he is liable plop onto your lap for a cuddle.) Early training and socialization will harness a Rottie’s territorial instincts in a positive way.
All of our personal breeding dogs are AKC registered and can competitively compete in AKC obedience-showing. However, in Germany, the SV, DV, & ADRK are the breed clubs who officiate. Here at Whited K-9 Services, Inc., we strive to adhere to these German Standards of Breeding. Great emphasis is placed upon strong, heavy bone structure and impeccable temperament. In an effort to preserve and enhance the quality of our loved dogs, all of the dogs we utilize in our personal breeding program are meticulously temperament tested, critiqued, and measured against the ultimate ideal specimen of their respected breeds to the very best of our ability and over 20 years of experience.
