I WAS TOLD MY ROTWEILER IS PURE BREED BUT HAVE BEEN TOLD OTHERWISE DUE TO HER NOT SO SHORT HAIR !! !!!
by MARIA M.
Hi, i was trying to do some research on my 9 week old rotweiler. I was told it is pure breed rotweiler, however today we were asked if she was mixed ? and that most rotweilers have short hair.
Other than her hair being a little bit long but not abnormal long. i have seen a lot pics on the internet of pure breeds pups that don't have short hair.
i have good pics of her so u can look at (i'm not sure how to upload them here so pl
It's impossible to tell if a puppy is purebred just by looking, even if you're seeing the pup in person rather than just photos. The only way to be sure that your pup is purebred is to buy from a reputable breeder, whose dogs are all registered with a well-known registration organization (such as the AKC for example).
But, for what it's worth, from looking at your photos I don't see anything that tells me your puppy isn't purebred. Many puppies have longer, 'fuzzier' hair, a lot depends on the bloodlines and genetics. This usually disappears as the puppy matures, but even as an adult the coat will likely be thicker, maybe a little longer, and sometimes have a 'wave' in it. This isn't a problem unless you've purchased a show dog.
Many adult Rottweilers have a thick undercoat, which is grey or rust in color, these dogs often have had a thicker coat when younger. Not always, but often.
As long as your little girl is happy, healthy and active I wouldn't worry about her coat. She looks adorable and I'm sure she's a sweetheart. Best of luck with her.
