Hi this is Dobby and today he is 5 months old, my partner thinks he is small and skinny.
Hi Sonia. Dobby is lovely, his coloring is nice and deep too. Please don't worry about what anyone says about your pup's size/weight. Rottweilers take a LONG time to mature and reach their weight/height/musculature.
They are also not meant to be a giant breed, just strong and sturdy working dogs. To prevent bone/joint problems it is much safer and healthier for a pup to be lean as he grows. As long as Dobby is eating a well-balanced nutritious diet he will grow to be the height/weight his genetic make-up allows for.
He looks just fine to me, with a lovely Rottweiler expression on his face. Just love him, socialize him and train him and he will be perfect. Best of luck with him.
